Good day, Norrathians!
It’s hard to believe we are almost out of spring and into summer! I wanted to take a moment and let you know what the team is working on and what’s coming.
First, Quarm! This new server will launch this summer! It’s a limited-time server where all characters are on a race to defeat Mata Muram! Here are some details:
We’ll have more information to share on the Quarm server as we get closer to opening this up to a beta test with players. Like our other special servers, access to Quarm will require membership.
Progression servers have been moving along nicely. Hard to believe that Ragefire opened on May 20 last year! Lockjaw and Phinigel both unlocked The Scars of Velious content on their servers recently, and players there have quickly been making their way through that era’s raid content.
The Memorial Day weekend is coming up and we have something special planned for players. Stay tuned to hear more at the end of this week.
Also, on June 1, we will launch our new Legends of Norrath Loot Pack – Legend of the Jarsath Destroyer – on our marketplace. This new pack will have loot from The Jarsath Destroyer, Fall of the Estarim, Debt of the Ratonga, and Drakkinshard. The previous loot pack, The Legend of the Dragonbrood, will go into the vault at the end of the day on May 31, so don’t miss out! It’ll be a while until it’s seen again!
And, as is true each year, we are well into our next expansion’s development. We’ll start giving you details as we get a little further along this year.
We are looking forward to another great year with our Norrathian faithful at our sides. Thanks for joining us!
Sincerely, as always,
Holly “Windstalker” Longdale

-Phinigel server unlock schedule has been modified to give devs time to play with PoP. Many people very upset on official forums about the idea of combining GoD and OoW as a single expac release.
-Then Phinigel server had Velious unlock (accidently) a wee bit early.
-On Lockjaw, people are trolling Faceless Insanity for having woken the Sleeper, which they haven't done yet. I got suckered in myself by the false report. When FI (or whomever) does wake the Sleeper, post in general here at Zam and let us know.
-On Phinigel, Grisvok is the leader of Asylum of Shadows and is proposing a server-wide attempt at killing the Sleeper in era.
-For those not playing on Phinigel, you can server transfer between Lockjaw and Ragefire as per the usual methods.

From the Official EQ Forums:
All EverQuest Live Servers will be brought offline on Wednesday, May 18, 2016 at 6:30AM Pacific* for a patch. Servers will be unavailable for approximately three hours.
Keep an eye on the EverQuest forums and social media for status updates and for news if additional downtime is needed.
Once available, update notes will be posted below.
Edit: Also sneaking in a mini-update...
No offense to Guard Noonshadow, but he is the only NPC in the game with the word "noon" in his/her/its name. Most of the other Kelethin NPC have the typical moon/stream/wood/sun type of names we expect from the elf-fantasy genre. Was he supposed to be Moonshadow? Noonshadow makes some sense of course, so maybe it's a stretch calling it a typo.
Any other longstanding typos out there that drive you crazy or make you laugh?
A couple of new items in the update suggest that the item collector is at least partially functioning again?
