EverQuest II celebrates its eighth anniversary for this year's event.
The Heroes' Festival, an annual live event first introduced in 2009, has made its return.. early! The event was scheduled to kick off on Tuesday, November 27, but it erroneously began the morning of Friday, November 23. Freeport and Qeynos will be filled with festivities to celebrate the 8th anniversary of EverQuest II.
Centered primarily at the Claymore in Qeynos Capitol District and Execution Plaza in the City of Freeport, players are able to participate in several event quests. Returning this year is the Dream Hero series, which has a new addition called A Dream Adventure, as well as Gandy's mission to light the Festive Flames. Mysterious disappearing decorations threaten to put a damper on the celebration. An appearance by the Heroes' Festival band sends players off on a mission to save the day so that the show can go on.
