Fallen Gate - A Time-Locked Expansion Server

Are you ready to relive your epic journey in EverQuest II? Heed the call of adventure and return to the Isle of Refuge once again on the new Time-Locked Expansion Server! The Fallen Gate server is scheduled to launch on Tuesday, June 27, 2017.

What’s New About Fallen Gate?

This will be a time-locked expansion server where expansions unlock automatically. In addition, Fallen Gate will have a new twist on Heritage Quests. Completing a Heritage Quest on this server will not only provide the quest reward – but an additional reward on EVERY server you play on.

All Races. All Classes.

Ever wanted to play a Beastlord or Channeler in classic EverQuest II? You can on Fallen Gate! All classes and races will be available when it launches!

Special Note: Players will still need the class/race features to play premium race and classes. Channeler and Beastlord Epics and certain class specific quests will only be available when the corresponding expansion content has unlocked on Fallen Gate.

Heritage Quest Focus

Completing Heritage Quests will award Achievements and unlock new claimable items.

For example, after you completed the Journeyman’s Boots Heritage Quest on Fallen Gate you’ll have a reward waiting for you for every character on your account on EVERY server.  You’ll be able to obtain a level 100 version of J-Boots on your regular play server, a level 90 version on Stormhold, and even a level 50 version for your Fallen Gate characters. Once you complete the Heritage Quest on Fallen Gate, these items can be purchased for free from a Heritage vendor located in Freeport and Qeynos.

Content Unlocks Every 12 Weeks

Players won’t vote to unlock content on Fallen Gate. Instead, every 12 weeks, expansion content will automatically unlock. Content that was released in between expansions will release 6 weeks after its corresponding expansion has released.

That means 12 weeks of classic EverQuest II, 12 weeks of Desert of Flames, 12 weeks of Kingdom of Sky, and so on. This also means GU and Adventure Pack content will release in between expansions. For example, 6 weeks after Echoes of Faydwer is released, you’ll have access to Fallen Dynasty.

All Access Membership Required

Like other progression and special ruleset servers, you’ll need an All Access Membership to access Fallen Gate. All Access also includes additional includes additional great benefits, like 10% off most Marketplace purchases, and a claimable 500DBC grant each month!

We’re excited to have you join us for the new Fallen Gate Time-Locked Expansion Server, starting on Tuesday, June 27, 2017!

The Nexus Proving Ground has been activated in the Proving Grounds. This zone is a 6 vs Environment match, meaning the only clock you are racing against is the default goal of 20 minutes. Like the PvEvP race matches, you receive a single reward per boss defeated/checkpoint cleared and, with a larger reward for defeating the final boss/checkpoint , and a bonus reward for beating the goal time.

Proving Grounds: The Nexus
Game Type: Race to Completion
Players: 6 v Environment
Confront the threats within the Nexus, defeating each of the arcane constructs in any order, though choose carefully as they are known to appropriate the abilities of the fallen.

Also activated in the Proving Grounds is the first Unranked Match The Underdepths. The Underdepths is a solo zone where you take control of a powerful avatar within the depths of Skyshrine. Unlike the ranked matches, you may not always receive a reward for every boss defeated, as there are multiple bosses in some checkpoints. You do however still receive the one reward per checkpoint cleared, with a larger reward for defeating the final checkpoint, and a bonus reward for beating the goal time of 15 minutes. Unranked matches are currently repeatable every 90 minutes and they do not post to the scoreboard.

You can access the unranked matches from the zone object behind the Proving Grounds scoreboard near loc 21, 1, -62.69
