Server Downtime for Game Update Wednesday

EverQuest servers will be brought down Wednesday morning for a "surprise patch" (downtime 4:00 A.M. to 6:00 A.M. Pacific Time) meant to address an (unspecified) in-game issue. They'll also use this opportunity to deal with some other issues:

- We've improved experience gains in older zones for players who are level 101 to 105.
- Experience bonus effects like Lesson of the Devoted and Bottles of Adventure will now apply to the experience rewarded on Heroic Adventure task completion.
- The amount of experience that mercenaries can gain on tasks has been increased dramatically.
- We’re adding new item to the Marketplace, Bottle of Adventure IV, which is a potion that grants +75% base XP.

EverQuest's Community Manager chimed in about the experience changes in old zones:

The goal is to have the experience fall-off as characters level to be in-line with what players have seen in the past when going back to older content after a level cap increase.

...And about the Heroic Adventure bonus experience changes:

The bonus is awarded during task completion. You won't get the bonus XP if LoD/Bottles have expired.

Patch notes as seen on the Test Server can be found here. (There is nothing else mentioned aside from what you see above and the hotfix that went live earlier this week.)
