Free Sarnak Illusion for All Access Members

Posted on the everquest.com Community News - September 2016:

Whoa! Who’s the Sarnak?

09-27-2016

As Norrathians prepare for EverQuest’s next expansion, EverQuest: Empires of Kunark, we’ve found many adventurers reminiscing about the first time they saw Kunark and the strange and mythical beasts that inhabited it.

One such creature is the Sarnak. First introduced to Norrath in the expansion The Ruins of Kunark, Sarnaks are Iksar/Dragon-hybrids. Once servants to the Iksar, Sarnaks famously revolted and claimed Chardok as their own.

In EverQuest, players have admired the might – and the vibrant appearance – of the Sarnak for many years. Now, if you’re an All Access Member, you can take on that appearance for yourself!

From 12:01AM on Wednesday, September 28, 2016 through 12:00PM (Noon) on Wednesday, October 12, 2016, All Access Members who log in to EverQuest will receive the “Visage of Chardok Royalty,” which is a Sarnak player illusion!

Sarnak Illusion

The illusion uses one of the classic character models that were first introduced when The Ruins of Kunark was released in 2000.

You can earn this item on every character, but you will need to log in with each character on which you want the item. Your account must have an active membership when you log in to be awarded this item. The Visage of Chardok Royalty is available to characters on all servers, including progression servers!

Want this illusion but not an All Access Member? Click here to read about the benefits of membership, and sign up today!

Next Expansion Announced, Labor Day Weekend Double XP

Daybreak has posted on the everquest.com website the September 2016 EQ Producer's Letter.

Here is the letter:



Greetings Norrathians, 

‘Tis the season to talk about our next expansion for EverQuest! The team has been working hard this year to manage the ongoing progression and event server updates, big server-side updates to improve stability, as well as toiling away on our new content-focused expansion this November. Speaking of the expansion…
Updated Sarnak
While we are still in the throes of development, we are thrilled to announce we are returning to a much-loved continent of Norrath! Prepare for EverQuest: Empires of Kunark! We’ve got a new look for Sarnaks (perhaps an illusion for some?!), new zones like Scorched Woods, Chardok: War March, Lceanium, Droga, Kor’Sha, new monsters, armor, weapons, items and more!

It’s been many years since we’ve set our eyes on Kunark and there are many stories to discover. At the beginning of October, look for announcements regarding expansion features, for pre-orders to become available, and news about when you can join us in the beta. The launch of EverQuest: Empires of Kunark is scheduled for November.

Also on the horizon, we’ll be unlocking Luclin on Phinigel server on September 28th 2PM PDT.  Ragefire and Lockjaw also have some expansion votes coming in October and November.

As we start cooling down for fall and prepare for EverQuest: Empires of Kunark, we’ve got a few promotions for you too:
  • This weekend we kick off a 40% off sale for members from September 1st 12PM PDT through September 6th 12PM PDT as well as Double Experience for everyone!
  • Starting this weekend, EverQuest: The Broken Mirror will be on sale at 50% off September 1st 12PM PDT through October 5th 12PM PDT. Note that option to purchase the Collector’s or Premium Edition of EverQuest: The Broken Mirror won’t be available after pre-orders for EverQuest: Empires of Kunark begin in October.
  • Also, throughout October and November until expansion launch we’ll be running bi-weekly bonuses, like experience boosts, reduced lockouts, increased rare spawns, and more.

There is plenty more to come, so keep an eye out for more news and announcements soon. As always, we are grateful to all of our dedicated and thriving EverQuest players!

Sincerely,
Holly “Windstalker” Longdale
