Hail, almighty Norrathans!
Summer is upon us and we've got updates for you! We are all really excited for what's coming this year, including the 15th Anniversary of EverQuest II and our expansion. And we've got plenty coming up between now and then!
Legendary Ethereal Item Drops and New Expert Dungeons!
This summer, play in new Expert versions of the heroic dungeons in the Chaos Descending expansion for awesome lewtz! It’s a good idea to use this opportunity to get leveled up for...reasons…too!
Check out this Fabled item from an Expert dungeon:
You also may want to look for some best-in-slot items in the Chaos Descending Public Quests as of the June 18th Game Update too. Vagueness intended. Both the Chaos Descending Public Quests and Expert Dungeons begin June 18, 2019.
Here's a look at a couple of the tasty Ethereal armor items dropping this summer. Whoa.
Nagafen PVP Server Seasons
The first Nagafen PVP Server Season 1 will come to an end on June 18, 2019, with the Game Update and will kick off its Season 2 on July 16, 2019. The team will be making some changes and tweaks based on Season 1, so keep an eye out from posts from the team as we move along!
Let’s Celebrate Pride!
This year, you can get our Pride-themed bunny familiars from the in-game store for free from June 21, 2019, until July 31, 2019. As a studio, we support every gamer who contributes to our community. Show the love!
The Scorched Sky Celebration Heats Up!
For the second time, worshipers of Fennin Ro and his son, Solusek Ro, will be celebrating across Norrath with Scorched Sky celebrations! The celebrations begin June 26, 2019, and end July 8, 2019.
2019 Summer Ethereal Event is now available. While the ethereal event is running, completing any Chaos Descending solo mission will grant an Astral Ethereal reward crate. When the Astral Ethereal reward crate is received it grants an Astral Gloom-Hardened Medallion up to your daily limit, and a small chance to receive a bonus reward based on the current Ethereal Wave. You may only receive 4 Astral Gloom-Hardened Medallions per day on each character from expert missions, 1 Astral Gloom-Hardened Medallion per day on each character from solo missions, and 1 Astral Gloom-Hardened Medallion per day on each character from Public Quest missions. On the test server, and only on the test server, solo missions will count as both the solo mission and an expert mission for calculating ethereal rewards.
Astral Gloom-Hardened Medallions may be used to purchase rewards from the Ethereal Merchant located in Myrist, the Great Library. During wave 1 the Ethereal Merchant will sell Gloom-Hardened armor pieces, and Astral Gloom-Hardened Shards. Astral Gloom-Hardened Shard may be used to upgrade the planar level of Gloom-Hardened armor.
Unlike in previous ethereal events, Astral Gloom-Hardened Medallions will not be made Heirloom at the end of the event. Instead, once a character has three fully upgraded Gloom-Hardened armor pieces, they will receive an account flag that allows them to upgrade Gloom-Hardened armor without expending shards on all characters on the account.
The 2019 Summer Ethereal event will end on 10/29/2019.

For generations, the othmir have been giving thanks to Prexus at during the early summer months each year for all he provides, above and beneath the waves. It is a celebration of all things Prexus, ocean, and sailing. Although this began as an othmir celebration, pirates, sailors, fishermen, and other ocean-folk have caught on quickly, joining in the reverie and praising the Ocean Lord. Now, they have opened the celebration to all of Norrath and anyone who may want to join in on the festivities!

This upcoming Memorial Day in the United States is a time for us to remember that many of our players – from all across the globe – have loved ones and friends who have served their countries and given the ultimate sacrifice. We are a fantasy game thoroughly not set in this real world, but we are also a community of real friendships that extend well beyond Norrath. We wanted to take a moment to remember, pay tribute, and offer an opportunity for all of us to come together this weekend.
This weekend, we will be commemorating Memorial Day with in-game bonuses. Take advantage of these bonuses on all servers:
We will also enable a 20% off sale for all Members in the marketplace. We wish you all a safe and happy weekend!
The bonus weekend will begin at 12PM PT on Friday, May 24, 2019, and will end at 12PM PT on Tuesday, May 28, 2019.
