Update Notes: Tuesday November 15, 2016 (Kunark As

KUNARK ASCENDING
Norrath remains in danger from Lanys T’Vyl, God of Malice, and her pursuit of power! Return to Kunark and adventure through unexplored lands full of strife as a powerful force of iksar plan to overthrow the lich emperor, Venril Sathir. Uncover dungeons long sealed or lost, amassing power and piecing together the history long buried, in an attempt to keep the last Chaos Stone out of Lanys' evil clutches!

It will take great courage to stand against the coming darkness and stop her from ushering in a new age of dominance by the gods. When the Tenets of Hate ascend to godhood, will you stand against them?

Kunark Ascending is the 13th EverQuest II expansion and brings new and exciting adventures to Norrath.

Journey to Obulus Frontier in North Kunark where you’ll explore the ruins of Kaesora, fight through the Crypt of Dalnir in Warslik Woods, traverse the City of Mist, and adventure through more areas both familiar and undiscovered!

Hero's Festival!

To our brave heroes of Norrath,

It has been twelve years since we first caught sight of the Isle of Refuge and made our way into this magical realm of Norrath. In that time, we have built cities, fought dragons, and – most importantly – formed lasting bonds of friendship with our fellow adventurers.

To celebrate this momentous occasion, the Heroes’ Festival is returning to Norrath once again. And this year, there is a special reward for anyone who participates! Earn the Twelfth Anniversary Celebration Mount if you complete six Heroes’ Festival Quests during the event.
