Season Two of Nagafen, the PvP event server is upon us!

GENERAL
  • Each account will only be able to create a single character on Nagafen, so be diligent when deciding on a race and class! And of course, know that with only one character, you will become known for the choices you make and your victories in battle.
  • More Info: https://www.everquest2.com/news/eq2-nagafen-pvp-server-faq-2019
  • As well as some updated announcements: https://www.everquest2.com/news/eq2-kaladim-nagafen-update-july-2019
  • New Achievements, Appearance armor, and Titles for Unique kills.
  • Blue Stats have been added to equipment. Blue stats will grant a reduced benefit in pvp combat.
  • Most encounters will have some combat mitigation and deal more damage to account for a portion of the power gained from blue stats.
  • Experience potions have been removed from the Nagafen marketplace.
Level Progression
  • This is a PvP server, so the majority of your progression will come from PvP fights. When you defeat an opponent, you will be given an XP reward, with unique kills giving you much more experience than players you have taken down previously. The more you defeat the same player, the less they will be worth. Quest experience will be the next best experience available, with NPC encounter experience rewards being relatively low in comparison.
  • You may now disable adventure experience, which includes pvp experience, by right clicking your experience bar in game.
  • Discovery XP has been greatly reduced.
Free-For-All PvP
  • PvP combat will be free-for-all and factionless, which means that anyone outside of your group or raid will be considered a hostile target. Every player is a potential target, and every player is a potential group mate, so you'd better learn how to make friends fast.
Leaderboard
  • Speaking to the Priest of Discord in Freeport and Qeynos will open a PvP leaderboard which will display a sortable list of all pvp leaders.
Bounty Missions
  • Once you have obtained level 15 you will become eligible for PvP bounties, granted by the Priest of Discord in Freeport and Qeynos. These bounties will update when you defeat one of the top 15 PvP leaderboard members of the appropriate type. While on a bounty mission you will have access to the Bounty Tracker inventory item to assist you in tracking down your targets.
  • Experience from bounties has been reduced in season 2.
Zones and Player Vs. Player Level Range
  • "Newbie" zones will have a 4 level PvP range. Zones that are included in the 4 level PvP range are: Antonica, Commonlands, Darklight Wood, Frostfang Sea, Oakmyst Forest, Outpost of the Overlord, Queen's Colony, The Caves, The Forest Ruins, The Graveyard, The Peat Bog, The Ruins, The Sprawl, The Sunken City, Big Bend, Stonestair Byway, Temple Street, Beggar's Court, Longshadow Alley, Scale Yard, Nettleville, Starcrest Commune, Graystone Yard, Castleview Hamlet, The Willow Wood, and The Baubbleshire. Normal zones will have an 8 level PvP range and zones intended for level 40+ will have an unlimited PvP range. The only non-PvP zones will be Freeport and Qeynos. All other zones are open for business.
  • Icy Dig has been lowered to Tier 1 heroic difficulty and treasure has been lowered in quality.
PvP Death
  • Characters that are killed in PvP will drop up to 70% of the coin they are carrying with them. Coin kept in the bank is not affected. There is also a chance that they will drop one of the tradeable items that they are carrying in their bags.
PvP Combat

  • Druid Regens have been reduced in pvp combat.
  • Crusader heals have been reduced in pvp combat.

EverQuest II
Update Notes: Tuesday July 23, 2019

GENERAL

  • Fixed an issue where zone transports (like the Sinking Sands airship) were not zoning characters properly.



ZONES / POPULATION
Pedestal of Sky

  • Simayak and Barakah have returned to Pedestal of Sky.
  • Loot from Pedestal of Sky will now spawn normally instead of being triggered by destroying the orb in the room.
  • Corrected an issue that caused the dragons to respawn improperly.



QUESTS

  • Menhir or There - Gathering beryl and stibnite crystals is now a group update.

ABILITIES

  • Elemental Blast has been updated as it could cause a significant amount of lag when cast due to each spell hit being individually processed first from the caster, to the pet where it applied modifying effects, then to the target. The ability now does its damage in a single strike sourced from the caster. However to adjust for the damage increase this causes, the ability will deal 50% of the caster’s maximum health to the target, which may be warded, and 150% of the pets maximum health to the pet, which may not be prevented.
