Emergency Downtime Tonight - All EverQuest servers will be coming down at 4:00 AM PDT on Saturday, July 18th to address an exploit. Expected downtime is less than one hour. We apologize for the inconvenience and the short notice.
Living Legacy Augments - Some players are not receiving the level of augment they should be. Development is aware of the issue and are working on resolving it. Please do not petition if you believe this is the case for you.
Spell Gem Lockups - The issue causing spells and abilities to "lock" and become temporarily unusable has been found and a solution is in the works. In the meantime, forgetting and re-memorizing spells should correct the problem should you experience it.
Currently the NO TRANSFER flag present on Mayong starting equipment prevents players from inserting augments into it. We are aware of this issue, but as it requires all servers to come down, it can not be corrected until the next Live Update. Other armor available on the server will not have this issue.
In honor of Independence Day and the opening of the Mayong (51/50) Server, EverQuest adventurers will be surrounded by a magical experience increase from around 11:00 a.m. PDT on Thursday, July 2nd until around 9:00 a.m. PDT on Monday, July 6th. Those nasty mobs will be worth an extra 51% experience points (on all servers!) through the holiday weekend. Happy adventuring!
Next Update - The next EverQuest update is now scheduled to take place at or after 12:00 AM PDT on Wednesday, July 15th. Expected downtime is eight hours or less. This message will be updated with further details as they are known.
Game Update: The next game update is scheduled for Wednesday, July 15th. All EverQuest Live Servers (except Al'Kabor) will be coming down around 2:00 am PDT (PDT is -7 GMT: 3:00am MDT, 4:00am CDT, 5:00am EDT, 9:00am GMT) on Wednesday, July 15, 2009 for a Game Update. The servers are estimated to be down for about 6 hours. We apologize for any inconvenience. We'll update the status if the downtime changes.
