EverQuest 14th Anniversary Celebrations

There are plenty of special quests and events lined up for EverQuest's 14th anniversary:

The 14th birthday of EverQuest is almost upon us, and we've got several boatloads of events lined up for you. Starting today, there is so much going on, you'll find different reasons to log in every day!

  • From March 8, 2013 to March 17, 2013 Rare Mobs and Faction Gains/Losses will be dramatically increased. Grind faction and get loot!
  • Starting March 11, 2013 and going till March 17, 2013 Lockout Timers will be reduced by 30%. Do more of what you want, when you want!
  • From March 15, 2013 through March 17, 2013 it's Double XP time! Whether it's getting your main some levels or AA, or leveling up a new alt, everyone loves Double XP!
  • Starting on March 15, 2013 and lasting until April 26, 2013, all our previous Anniversary Quests and content will be turned on. Don't miss any of these oldies but goodies!
  • Finally, starting on March 15, 2013 and lasting until May 26, 2013, all our Anniversary Quests and content will be turned on. This party isn't just going all night – it's going for two months!

Also coming with this year's anniversary events are player-designed missions. (Details below the jump.)

This year we've added a bunch of new quests to our Anniversary events; these quests have been designed by your fellow players at last year's SOE Live.

  • Surviving Xmiticzin
    A necromancer by the name of Xmiticzin has obtained a larger piece of a Cazic's shard, and gained control over the artifact vault in Chapterhouse of the Fist. The Harbingers want his shard as part of their mission to revive Cazic Thule. Unfortunately, he has barricaded himself inside the vault and forces anyone trying to reach him to play demented games. In order to reach him, you'll have to get through his games alive.

  • Big Gnomes, Big Problem
    Giant skeletons have started attacking the gates of Ak'anon, and threaten to crush the small gnome army defending it. Join the resistance and help them not only stop the giant skeleton invasion, but uncover who's behind it all. Gnomish inventors will aid you in your mission, granting you boons like super-size, a flamethrower, and a top-secret bunny disguise. Best of all, the mission is level-agnostic, allowing characters of any level play through it together without the use of shrouds.

  • Piestro's Day Off
    Piestro was enjoying a day off wandering about the Great Divide, when the designers contacted him and gave him some alarming news: Bristlebane is making a huge stink about how the developers haven't paid him any attention lately, so he kidnapped one of them and stashed them away in the Plane of Mischief.

    The design team has asked Piestro to find some brave adventurers to rescue the captured developer. You will have to play by Bristlebane's rules in his realm, however, and become one of his wacky minions. What tricks does Bristlebane have in store for you and your fellow adventurers? There is only one way to find out; enter the Plane of Mischief and try to keep your wits about you!

  • Evil Eye Operative
    Huckle Thornleaf is the last remaining member of a covert task force whose sole focus was to gather intelligence on Xorbb's army. Alone in the woods, Huckle is bound by honor to remain at his post, but worries for the safety of his comrades who he believes were captured by Xorbb's minions. Luckily, Huckle has a plan, and it involves you using the guise of an evil eye to infiltrate Xorbb's stronghold and rescue the remaining task force members.

  • To Thine Own Creator... Be True, or False?
    Choose to either work with the minions of the First Creation in Convorteum to discover which of his creations has become a traitor, or to overthrow his tyrannical rule!

But wait, there's more!

With this being the celebration of 14 years of EverQuest, we thought there was no better time to release the highly anticipated Epic Ornamentation Quests! Built as a labor of love by our own Chris "Dzarn" Black, these quests will be available from March 15th onward. Here's a little blurb to get you excited:

Greetings Norrathians!

Are you tired of your dull and dismal daggers, your boring and bare blades, your humdrum and humiliating hammers? Then come on down to Dzarn's Epic Ornamentation Quest Emporium where we offer the finest in nostalgic ornamentations!

You Shamans longing to wield your Spear of Fate, you got it!

You Warriors wishing you could unleash the glowing blades of strategy and tactics, you got it!

You Necromancers who would rather use your duck staff over the 2.0 you're still holding on to, you got it!

Ever wanted to burn new Freeport to the ground? YOU GOT IT!

Relive epic moments in your class' history as you do battle against Zordakalicus, Innoruuk, Khati Sha, Miragul, and more!

Starting now with EverQuest's 14th anniversary you too will be able to visit Dzarn's Epic Ornamentation Quest Emporium, satisfaction guaranteed*.

*Guarantee of satisfaction not guaranteed. Participants must have completed the original epic 1.0, 1.5, or 2.0 quest that they desire the ornamentation of. Participants will need to visit 16 historic locations and complete a special event at one of them based on their class. These events will be available starting with EverQuest's 14th anniversary, but will not go away when the season is over. Enjoy!

Of course we'll be having a few sales here and there as well, some bigger than others. ;)

So keep your eyes out, your mercenaries close by, and get in game today!

Starting March 11, 2013 and going till March 17, 2013 Lockout Timers will be reduced by 30%. Do more of what you want, when you want! Solo and Group tasks have not had the /tasktimer reduced. I don't know about raids but i doubt they will even bother activating that part of what they said they would do. I honestly doubt the 1st part as well at least in regards to the rare mob spawn.
Hot Zones

I always forget... somebody please remind me. If you use LoTD or a double XP potion during a Double-XP Weekend do you get triple or quadruple XP? Or do they not even stack?

It would be 100% base/normal xp +100% of the base xp for the double xp weekend + another 100% of base xp for the LOD = 300% total xp.

I believe that the maximum xp potion available in the Marketplace is a 50% xp pot which would give you 250% total instead of 300% with the LOD.

Good luck.
so when do we get double station cash?
