Hidden Cache Temporarily Closed

According to the MOTD:

I guess that loot table change was not intended!

Merry Christmas from the Allakhazam Team

The Allakhazam team would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas today, as well as a safe and happy holiday season. We hope you're all able to spend some time with your family and friends. Also, if you get some time to log in to your game of choice today, we hope you get the chance to participate in its holiday festivities. After all, the grind never stops, but in-game events like these don't happen very often.

Holiday cheer is also being spread in most of our forums, so feel free to visit them and continue in the discussions. For Final Fantasy XI fans, members of the Allakhazam community have written "The 12 Days of Vana'diel." As I mentioned in a previous news post, the World of Warcraft community wrote "The 12 Days of Winter Veil." I'm sure somebody out there must have a decent singing voice and a microphone...

For you Star Wars Galaxies fans, Instigator has posted the official Allakhazam SWG holiday picture. If you have any festive in-game screenshots, we'd love to see them. Also, let us know if you got any good loot, both in-game and out.

Happy holidays everyone!

Upcoming Goodies for EQII

Brett "timetravelling" Scheiner, Associate Game Designer, Everquest II, dropped this holiday note on the official forums:

As a New Year’s Resolution (a few days early, admittedly), we pledge to create within a few months (aka GU52):

  • A brand new two-group instance with 9 bosses—over half of whom drop Void Shards—balanced for players in legendary gear
  • A very challenging brand new four-group raid instance
  • Brand new tradeskill instance in the Void
  • A Lavastorm revamp
  • Brand new areas added to Lavastorm with level 80 solo content
  • A new faction with gear to gather from the new Lavastorm content
  • 12 new armor sets
  • All of them with brand new armor appearances
  • Including a brand new robe model in which the Helm and Shoulders and Legs are all visible, separate pieces from the Chest
    • And it looks rad *cough* See also: Varsoon *cough*

We have SO MUCH cool stuff planned for y’all, and can’t wait to show it to you!

Enjoy the holidays!!
