Especially with newer content, it is key that you say which version of an NPC you are updating drops for. Since the devs like putting multiple versions of the same named in the instance versions (Bhaly Adan is in several of the variations of Plane of Health for example) posting under the main zone "This NPC dropped item X" isn't enough info.

Everquest Server Downtime March 23, 2016

It's TEE time at DBGs!

You know what that means, it's time to let the Hamsters out for a little R&R!  And while they're out enjoying the back nine:

All Everquest Live Servers will be brought offline for a little tune up.  Tee Time begins at 7:30AM Pacific and their short game is expected to last approximately 2 hours.  During this time all servers will be unavailable.

Just in case they get stuck at the 19th hole a little too long, check the official Everquest Forums and social media for status updates and news if additional downtime is needed. 

See below for the patch notes:


EQ Update #23 2016

Solesek's Eye

A Look at the Entrance Way


Stageguy posted his thoughts on hunting in Solusek's Eye (Solusek A) in the modern game, as he had been away awhile and was not finding good information. He did the same for Jagged Pine. This is a lot like what Sippin, Fayman and others have been doing for much of the recent Heroic Adventures content. It's great to have some 2016 perspective on this content.


The challenge: Go to a favourite zone of yours. Make notes as if you were going to guide someone through it, point out the dangers and rewards. Maybe there are some quirks to the zone? Then post this as a mini-guide under the zone's forum. Feel free to overlap (why not have multiple person's take on a zone?). The extra challenge is do obscure places that nobody really uses, even on progression servers.

Bonus: Post in the EQ General forums, make a new thread announcing your guide. Example: "A Guide to Najena 2016" and link to the zone thread you posted in. This gets some eyes on it, and will garner you some feedback and likely some rate-ups. Win-win.

Here are the patch notes:

EQ Update #22 2016

A Recommendation of Hate?



We've re-entered the MAJOR faction quest for Innoruuk Trolls out of Grobb. We suspect that the East Freeport version works still/again too. None of the quest NPC and items were linked, and the Grobb version of this NPC was not in the database at all... are other Grobb re-revamp NPC's missing? We do know that many old Grobb quests don't quite work as they did before the Frogloks did their sit-in.

Updated Items: Note of RecommendationBoreal Breastplate of the Light

EQ Mobile App Discontinued

DBGs announced today that they will be discontinuing the Everquest Worlds mobile app at the end of this month.  From the Everquest Forums, Laylaih posted the announcement today:

We will be closing the EverQuest Worlds mobile app at the end of this month.

If you would like to play any of the current mini-games, finish up quest lines, and/or retrieve codes for rewards, you will need to do so on or before midnight (11:59PM PDT) on Thursday, March 31, 2016.

The app will remain available in the App Store (iOS) and via Google Play (Android) until its sunset on March 31, 2016.

We hope you enjoyed this app while it was available, and continue to use and enjoy the rewards you’ve redeemed in EverQuest, EverQuest II, and Landmark.


Everquest Next: CANCELED

Unfortunately, we see too many instances where promising games have been shelved indefinately or canceled outright.  We all know it's a sad fact of life in game development, So it's a sad time for the EQ Community to hear that Everquest Next has joined the ranks of all past vaporware and has been officially canceled.  I know many of us were looking forward to playing in a new branch of the Everquest franchise and held high the hopes of exploring a new Norrath. 

Given the transition to DBG and all of the changes that ensued, I suppose it's really not much of a surprise to anyone. It's hardly an unanticipated decision, but definitely a disappointing one to hear. 

Here is the company's official announcement:

To Our Daybreak Community,

I’m writing today to let you know that, after much review and consideration, Daybreak is discontinuing development of EverQuest Next.

For the past 20 years EverQuest has been a labor of love. What started as a deep passion of ours, as game creators, grew into a much larger passion shared by you, millions of players and Daybreakers alike. Watching EverQuest’s ability to entertain and bring people together has inspired and humbled us. It’s shaped our culture and has emboldened us to take aggressive risks with our game ideas and products. When we decided to create the next chapter in the EverQuest journey, we didn’t aim low. We set out to make something revolutionary.
