Double XP - December 23 to December 26

From a post by Prathun, EQ Developer, on the EverQuest forum:
Double Faction and Rares: Fri. 12/16 @ 10am - Mon. 12/19 @ 2pm.
Double Experience: Fri. 12/23 @ 10am - Mon. 12/26 @ 2pm.
All times are Pacific.
I believe our marketing folks will have an announcement for any planned event(s) that may or may not occur in celebration of the New Year, so I will not steal their thunder.

Happy Holidays!

Free Sarnak Illusion for All Access Members

Posted on the Community News - September 2016:

Whoa! Who’s the Sarnak?


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 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!

Legends of Norrath Shutting Down Permanently August 17, 2016

Daybreak has announced that Legends of Norrath will shut down permanently on August 17, 2016. The last day to purchase booster packs and claim monthly All Access free packs is July 18, 2016.

Here is the announcement:
 For the past nine years, EverQuest and EverQuest II players have interacted with the world of Norrath through the Legends of Norrath Trading Card Game. Many of you have enjoyed its art, its strategic gameplay, and hopefully found that elusive Loot card granting one of our cool in game items.

Legends of Norrath has not had an active development team for quite some time and in the best interest of our company and players, we have made the difficult decision to close the servers on Wednesday, August 17, 2016 at Noon Pacific Time.

Purchasing Legends of Norrath booster packs and the monthly All Access Membership claim of Legends of Norrath booster packs will no longer be available after Monday, July 18, 2016 at 10AM Pacific Time.

All loot rewards and packs in the Legends of Norrath client will need to be open and claimed on your character prior to when the servers close to ensure that your loot rewards are available in EverQuest and EverQuest II.

We know some of you are extremely enthusiastic about some of the items that were previously introduced in the Legends of Norrath TCG packs. These loot rewards will continue to be available to players through other means. Look to the Marketplace for packs which give an opportunity for rewards from previous LON sets.

We appreciate your understanding and continued support.

Chalandria's Fang Scenario Active Again in LoN

I just went into LoN to get my five free decks this month and checked for this and discovered it is live. No idea for how long.

[IMG]Chalandria's Fang is an item that will summon poison once every 20 hours. The poison for all level 105 classes except rogues is [IMG]Chalandria's Bite XVIII. Rogues may get a different (better) poison, however this needs to be confirmed. Lower level toons (exact level / reward is to be discovered) get a lesser poison.

It is a Legends of Norrath Spider Queen scenario loot item. The Spider Queen scenario has returned. If you win the scenario, you get Chalandria's Fang as the EQ loot item. Chalandria's Fang and the poison can not be traded.

This information is from

UPDATE: It appears this was for the month of May and is now over.
