EverQuest II: Chains of Eternity is Upon Us!

During the downtime check out ZAM's guides to EverQuest II's latest expansion!

UPDATE 1:05pm PST: Servers that crashed are back online now. Keep an eye on the server status page if anything changes!

UPDATE 12:18pm PST: Servers are unlocked... GO GO GO!

You are welcome to join us in the #EQ2 channel of ZAM's IRC chat!

All servers have come down for the Chains of Eternity launch. They are currently estimated to be down for five hours, which would give a 12pm (noon) PST uptime. We'll keep you posted if we hear anything different. Patch notes are available on our GU65 page.

ZAM jumped head-first into the beta and we are excited to have some guides ready for you! We'd like to extend our thanks to Heroes of Test, and especially Whilhelmina, for their assistance on beta and the site. Check out all of our quest series, zone and crafting guides on our Chains of Eternity page. We also have a video we made of some of our expansion journeys.

Cannot buy Chains of Eternity with Station Cash?

What really bothers me about this, is that I stuck with them after they screwed up on letting our identities become compromised.
Did you think we had forgotten that? Forgiveness I give freely, but not my trust.
Trust has to be earned, and right now, SOE, I thought you had learned something about customer service from all this.
Bait and switch does not earn my trust. You started okay letting subscription members buy expansions with SC. Now you switch it?
Not good customer service. Are you listening to your most devoted players?
Sorry about ranting in this forum; guess I should send this as a letter to SOE.

Well, not being able to buy the expansion pack with station cash is a game-changer in many senses of the word.
When, after paying for two accounts for more than two years, SOE decided to go to FTP, nerf most of my gear, and start selling for station cash all sorts of skills and abilities that in the past people had to earn and work together for, yet still charge me $30-$40 per year for each expansion pack, only two things kept me from cancelling my accounts outright —- they changed the subscription accounts to include 500 free station cash per month, and expansion packs could be bought with station cash. Okay, I thought, so if I save 8 out of each 12 month’s 500 SC allowance (instead of blowing it on useless appearance fluff ), then I can actually afford the expansion packs. After all, with two accounts, they’re getting $30 per month from me, $360 per year, what’s a $40/year discount, right?
Now they want to nickel and dime me for that too?
No, I don’t have to buy it. I’m seriously beginning to question whether or not I even want to keep my accounts as subscription. What’s the point? I don’t use the SC for fluff, it’s not worth it.
My sons and wife have lost interest in the game, so maybe it’s time to trim this part of the budget. Times are hard, and if SOE wants to nickel and dime me, I’ll go play LOTR for free. My sons are excited about The Hobbit movie, and would love to play in Middle Earth.
Great timing, SOE. Did you think there were no other games in town?
Times are hard. Times are harder if you’re stupid.
Still Down
