Daybreak Games Throws in Towel on Physical Game Cards

Written by Feldon on . Posted in Daybreak Cash



Hey Daybreak fans!

For the past year, we have sold Daybreak game cards in select U.S. retailers (Walmart, Target, GameStop, Toys R Us, and Best Buy). We have decided not to continue selling the physical game cards in stores; instead, Daybreak Cash (and/or All Access Membership), will be available in digital-only formats, direct from Daybreak on the web or in-game.

Daybreak game cards will no longer be available at U.S. retailers beginning the week of September 26, 2016. If you have a purchased Daybreak game card that you have not yet redeemed, you will still be able to redeem it on line.

Have questions? Read our FAQ below!

500DBC Marketplace Limited Time Offer Window

Written by Feldon on . Posted in Daybreak Cash, EQ2

EverQuest II players with an All Access subscription can claim 500DBC every month as a reward for subscribing. To further sweeten this deal (and drive sales rather than stockpiling), a new “Offer Claim” window has been added with limited-time offers. Here’s an example — presumably the offers will change and may even be randomized:

DING! Heroic Characters Now Start at Level 95

Written by Feldon on . Posted in Daybreak Cash, EQ2



Beginning their journey in the Tranquil Sea, new Heroic Characters will venture into the battles of Norrath starting as Level 95 Adventurers!

Want to experience these new Heroic Characters for yourself? Log in to EverQuest II by 12:00PM (Noon) PT on Tuesday, September 6, 2016, and you will get your first Level 95 Heroic Character FOR FREE!

The free Heroic upgrade icon on the Character Select screen. If the graphic is not there, just click in the empty space to the right of your character name.

A few things to note:

  • If you have previously purchased a Heroic Character, it will not automatically become Level 95. Only new Heroic Characters begin at this level.
  • You must have had an EQ2 account in good standing on/prior to 12:00PM PT on Tuesday, August 23, 2016 in order to get the free Heroic Character. If you create a brand new account, it will not be eligible for the promotion, unless the account has membership.


If you have not already got accounts sitting around with unleveled characters, the smart money here is to create a new account, roll a new character, add a Krono to the account, and bam you can upgrade that character to level 95 for free. A $60 value for $19.

On the flipside, if you already paid $35 for a level 90 Heroic character, today’s update will not automatically ding that character to level 95. If you recently purchased a Heroic character, I might be inclined to contact Customer Service and see if there’s any wiggle room here. $35 is $35.

Bonus Ethereal Coins and New Marketplace Bags

Written by Feldon on . Posted in Daybreak Cash, EQ2, Game Updates & Maintenance


Look to the Marketplace for new items that are available starting today! Also, members will earn bonus Ethereal coins until Monday, July 25.

As of this patch, players now have the ability to display a quiver appearance in-game! Look to the Marketplace under bags > quivers for new items that let you show off your interest in archery! Quivers are priced at 1299DBC.

Also, new bags are available in the Marketplace on all servers! 66-slot bags of a variety of appearances are available for 999DBC. Regular 50-slot bags can be purchased for 599DBC.

Double Ethereal Coins

Summer 2016 Ethereals are in full swing! If you’re not familiar with this year’s Ethereal event, check out the post here.

Members earn DOUBLE Ethereal Coins until Monday, July 25, 2016 at 11:59PM PDT.

Not currently a member? All Access membership has its perks!


Previously, there were only a few ways to get bags with more than 63 slots — the Claws of Veeshan bag for attending SOE Live 2014, the Rallic Pack from doing the Tuesday Daily Tradeskill Mission in Tranquil Seas, and Naylie’s Nebulous Newsbag from completing the Guide quest “Nebulous Newsies“, or if you purchased the Terrors of Thalumbra Collector’s Edition for $89.99. With today’s Marketplace update, it looks like anyone can now buy 66-slot bags for $10. While it’s possible to acquire two of these convenience items through gameplay, if you want more, there’s only one choice.

Appearance Quivers Come to EQ2 Marketplace

Written by Feldon on . Posted in Daybreak Cash, EQ2


One of the appearance items which EQ2 players have requested over the years are Quivers. With a ranger as my main character, it’s fine to travel with an appearance bow on my back, but my preference would be a quiver. Starting tonight, the [eq2u]Scourge Watchman’s Quiver[/eq2u] is now available for purchase from the Marketplace for a price of 1299 DBC. It holds 26 stacks of ammo (it currently only accepts arrows but will be updated to hold thrown ammo in a future update).


After equipping the quiver, a new option becomes available in the Character Options tab under Back Gear. I already have a Claws of Veeshan backpack (from attending SOE Live) and Rallic Pack (for completing the Tradeskill daily in Altar of Malice). Now I have another option as shown…

Daybreak Games Sunsetting Legends of Norrath, Planetside 1 on August 17

Written by Feldon on . Posted in Daybreak Cash


Launched September 5, 2007, Legends of Norrath began Sony Online Entertainment’s love affair with online trading card games. With solo and multiplayer game scenarios, players were encouraged to buy LoN card packs to build decks and play to complete achievements and for bragging rights. Gameplay took its cues from its real-life counterpart Magic the Gathering, although with Legends of Norrath, no physical cards were sent out — everything is virtual.

Premium Highhold and Skyshrine Capital Guild Halls Available Starting At $350

Written by Feldon on . Posted in Art, Appearance, Housing, Daybreak Cash, EQ2


Norrathians – it’s time to team up with your guildmates to unlock access to the new Highhold Guild Hall and Skyshrine Capital Guild Hall!

These two guild halls may be earned by purchasing guild tickets from the Marketplace [for $1 or 100DBC each]. Anyone within a guild may purchase and make use of these guild tickets. Each ticket increases the count on the guild medal, and once 350 (for Highhold) or 400 (for Skyshrine Capital) total tickets have been used, the medal is granted and the guild will have access to purchase that guild hall from the guild bells in Antonica or Commonlands. Both guild halls also require a guild of level 30 or above.

Grabbed too many guild tickets? They can also be sold on the broker or sold for status!

PLUS, the Skyshrine Capital Guild Hall has a bonus amenity available – the chrono echo of a dragon! Members of the guild that owns the hall may find that she grants a special bonus to them.



Update: Bloodguts has posted what the reward is:

For anyone wondering what the special bonus item you get from being an owner of the Skyshrine Guild Hall, it’s a Filled Experience Vial (200,000 Adventure Experience)

Instead of being no-value only, it’s Lore/No-Value/No-Trade version. That can only be picked up we believe is every 24 hours once. Not worth the $400 dollars it took to purchase.

NOTE: Unlike all other prestige housing, these two new guild halls require the full upkeep cost of a regular guild hall, plus any amenities.


Legends of Norrath “Loot Packs” Now Available on the Marketplace

Written by Feldon on . Posted in Daybreak Cash, EQ2


Towards the end of the Spring Update Livestream, we were informed that we’d gain the ability to acquire Legends of Norrath Loot Cards rather than the current process of buying and unwrapping dozens of Legends of Norrath game packs hoping to get lucky. The Legends of Norrath card game was recently unbundled from the EQ and EQ2 clients and now requires a standalone download and install.

Today comes the news that Legends of Norrath “Loot Packs” are now available for purchase from the Marketplace. However rather than providing a choice of specific loot, each pack contains two random loot items. Like the Mercenary Packs, Burbur Baskets, the new LoN Loot Packs continue a trend of chance over choice. On the plus side, the loot items are tradeable on the Broker as one player found out. Even if you don’t believe in gambling, you’ll still be able to acquire items from those who do.

From the EverQuestII Twitter:

Legends of Norrath Loot Packs are now available!  What loot are you chasing?

The announcement on the EQ2 Forums is not up yet, but a similar announcement on the EQ Forums gives some details:

Legend of the Jarsath Destroyer is the newest Legends of Norrath loot pack. Like previous packs, each “Legend of the Jarsath Destroyer” pack costs 999 DBC and contains two (2) random loot rewards that were originally available in Legends of Norrath. The Legend of the Jarsath Destroyer packs include loot that was previous available from LON sets: The Jarsath Destroyer, Fall of the Estarim, Debt of the Ratonga, and Drakkinshard.

I was hoping to login and see a new Marketplace category that would allow me to buy the exact items I want at a fair price. It will be interesting to see how many people partake of these Loot packs.

From the EQ2 Forums:

Happy Springtime, Norrathians!

Time is zipping by as usual! I wanted to drop in and let you know what we’ve been up to.

As you continue with the Terrors of Thalumbra expansion and take part in GU100, the team has been toiling away on future plans. And what are those? Well….

By the end of June we are going to introduce two new servers! We wanted to hear what kind of servers the community wanted so we recently ran an in-game survey. Given the results, we decided to launch two servers, each with different rules. There will be details coming soon, but here’s the summary:

Marketplace: New Mercenary Crates and Ultra Rare Mercenary

From Laylaih on the EQ2 Forums:

New Mercenary Crates are now available in the Marketplace starting today, April 28th, 2016!

The new Stormcaller series features mercenaries who are fashioned after the ever-popular Perrin Wanderhoof, and they use Fury class abilities! There are 10 new appearances for this popular mercenary, including some very unique and sought-after versions like this fierce warrior:


Buy 5 Krono and Save! [December 11-December 13]

Written by Feldon on . Posted in Daybreak Cash, EQ2


From the EQ2 Forums:

For the first time, we’re putting the most popular pack of Krono – the 5 Krono pack – on sale! Beginning at 12:00AM PST on Friday, December 11 through 11:59PM PST on Sunday, December 13, you’ll be able to purchase the bundle of 5 Krono for only $69.99 USD*.

Currently available in EverQuest and EverQuest II, Krono are in-game objects that can be redeemed for 30 days of membership time. They may be purchased from the Daybreak marketplace for real money only, or from other players via the broker or private trades for in-game currency.

The Krono sale will be happening via the in-game marketplaces in EverQuest and EverQuest II, and on the web. For questions about Krono, visit the FAQ on either or

*International currency prices may vary.


The normal price for five Krono (redeemable for 30 days of All Access non-recurring subscriotion) is $84.99 which works out to $16.99 a month, a buck off the single Krono price. With this sale, Krono are going for $13.99, at least if you live in the USA.  A player in Sweden reported that the price of 5 Krono has actually gone UP with today’s sale.

Mercenary Bundles On Sale Friday Nov 27 – Sunday Nov 29

Daybreak Games Black Friday/Cyber Monday Details

Written by Feldon on . Posted in Daybreak Cash, EQ2

For those rare few of you who got Daybreak Games’ e-mail about the upcoming Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals (I did not, and one other person I spoke to only got ONE e-mail despite having 7 accounts), this will be old news. For everyone else, it looks like Daybreak Cash will be 25% off on Black Friday (November 27, 2015) and you’ll be able to get three months of All Access for just $29.99 on Cyber Monday (November 30, 2015).


New Daybreak Game Cards Coming October 12th

Written by Feldon on . Posted in Daybreak Cash, EQ2

When Sony Online Entertainment became Daybreak Games in February, the 30-day/2000SC StationCash cards were discontinued and went out of production. Next week, the replacement DaybreakCash cards will be reaching retail stores. Interestingly, the new cards come in $25 and $50 denominations.

The snazzy new DaybreakCash website is a little vague on how these cards work for All Access subscription time. Fortunately we’ve learned through followup posts by Dexella that these new cards can redeemed for 30-day All Access subscriptions, DaybreakCash, or a mixture of the two. It will be interesting to see exactly how granular this control is (can a $25 card grant 50 days of All Access subscription?).

From the EQ2 Forums:

Beginning the week of October 12th, you will see the new Daybreak game cards at U.S. Best Buy, GameStop, and Toys R Us retailers. In November, the cards are scheduled to be available in Target locations across the U.S.

The new cash cards will come in two denominations: $25 and $50. There are four card designs in all and every retailer will get multiple copies of each card design. Collect the whole set!


Daybreak Cash is the in-game currency that unlocks thousands of cool items, services, and adventures in your favorite Daybreak Games. We appreciate your patience while we roll out these new cards, and we hope you enjoy them!
