Update Notes: Saturday March 16, 2019

TWO NEW SERVERS
Kaladim

Nagafen

  • Event PvP Server
  • Each account will only be able to create a single character on Nagafen, so be diligent when deciding on a race and class! And of course, know that with only one character, you will become known for the choices you make and your victories in battle.
  • More Info: https://www.everquest2.com/news/eq2-nagafen-pvp-server-faq-2019

Level Progression

  • This is a PvP server, so the majority of your progression will come from PvP fights. When you defeat an opponent, you will be given an XP reward, with unique kills giving you much more experience than players you have taken down previously. The more you defeat the same player, the less they will be worth. Quest experience will be the next best experience available, with NPC encounter experience rewards being relatively low in comparison.
  • You will not have the ability to disable PvP experience rewards.

Free-For-All PvP

  • PvP combat will be free-for-all and factionless, which means that anyone outside of your group or raid will be considered a hostile target. Every player is a potential target, and every player is a potential group mate, so you'd better learn how to make friends fast.

Leaderboard

  • Speaking to the Priest of Discord in Freeport and Qeynos will open a PvP leaderboard which will display a sortable list of all pvp leaders.

Bounty Missions

  • Once you have obtained level 15 you will become eligible for PvP bounties, granted by the Priest of Discord in Freeport and Qeynos. These bounties will update when you defeat one of the top 15 PvP leaderboard members of the appropriate type. While on a bounty mission you will have access to the Bounty Tracker inventory item to assist you in tracking down your targets.

Zones and Player Vs. Player Level Range

  • "Newbie" zones will have a 4 level PvP range. Zones that are included in the 4 level PvP range are: Antonica, Commonlands, Darklight Wood, Frostfang Sea, Oakmyst Forest, Outpost of the Overlord, Queen's Colony, The Caves, The Forest Ruins, The Graveyard, The Peat Bog, The Ruins, The Sprawl, The Sunken City, Big Bend, Stonestair Byway, Temple Street, Beggar's Court, Longshadow Alley, Scale Yard, Nettleville, Starcrest Commune, Graystone Yard, Castleview Hamlet, The Willow Wood, and The Baubbleshire. Normal zones will have an 8 level PvP range and zones intended for level 40+ will have an unlimited PvP range. The only non-PvP zones will be Freeport and Qeynos. All other zones are open for business.

PvP Death

  • Characters that are killed in PvP will drop up to 70% of the coin they are carrying with them. Coin kept in the bank is not affected. There is also a chance that they will drop one of the tradeable items that they are carrying in their bags.

PvP Ability Balance

  • PvP specific templates have been created for many spells that are too powerful in their base forms for PvP combat, such as control abilities (charm, fear, etc). These templates are intended to reduce their power to the desired balance of the ability, without removing their desirability entirely.

PvP General

  • Auto-Follow, and Auto-Run will break when hit in PvP combat.

MISCHIEF AND MAYHEM
Runnyeye Fabled
As is the nature of Bolgin Serilis' disaster-inducing creation – the goblin – wherever they go, mayhem follows. And nowhere on Norrath, or on any other known (and quite possibly unknown) plane of existence, is this more evident than within their underground citadel of Runnyeye. However, it's not just the Runnyeye clan of goblins causing a raucous heard as far away as The Fool's Gold. Oh no, they've decided to throw a party! A great gathering of goblins, from every nook and cranny, have descended into the dungy depths of Runnyeye, and are just waiting for someone to crash their party. That someone might as well be you, brave adventurers!

The Anchorage [Public Tradeskill]
The dust has settled, the parlay has ended. The armies of Freeport and Qeynos have retreated back to their respective cities. What remains of the New Combine? Very few have stayed behind to finish the work that all once believed was possible – and they need help. Whilhelm Nam’terin was once a dockmaster for the New Combine but he has since shared his dream to create a research society with to cultivate new and unique curiosities. Whilhelm is calling for the aid of any capable tradeskiller to help make this dream a reality. Do your part to help form the Anchorage! Those wishing to lend a hand can find Whilhelm near the Salt Breeze camp in Cobalt Scar if they have completed “The Scrivener’s Tale” quest series in Chaos Descending.

Public Tradeskill Apprentices
Band together with your tradeskiller allies and help these new academics research all new recipes! Much like personal tradeskill apprentices, they can discover new unique recipes over time. Anyone can help speed things along by completing new missions for them, which will reduce the amount of time needed for the active research task. You'll also earn a special currency by helping the researchers along through their requisitions. Once the research is completed, the recipes can be bought from a nearby merchant with your earned currency. These researched recipes are server-wide unlocks instead of just individual rewards and can be repurchased at any time!

The Chronoportal Phenomenon is Back!

For years we have been witness to mysterious portals across the Shattered Lands, which have allowed us to travel back in time to the Age of Turmoil. Norrathian's studies into these portals have furthered the knowledge of chronomancy, and led to many breakthroughs. The appearance of these portals is now recognized as being a part of the annual phase in which the barrier to the stream of the past is the thinnest. It is that time once again, and your help is needed!

Seek out the chronomancers in Myrist, the Coliseum of Valor, Antonica, The Commonlands, Enchanted Lands, Thundering Steppes, Steamfont Mountains, Lavastorm, Sinking Sands, Feerrott, or Moors of Ykesha. During this phase, they will be holding the portals to the Chronostream open. Step into the time between times, from where you’ll be able to venture to the Age of Turmoil and help investigate this wondrous magic. Your accomplishments will surely be rewarded.

The Chronoportals have already appeared in Norrath, but act quickly! They will only remain open through Sunday, March 31, 2019.

In returning to the past, history is bound to repeat itself... but this year, there's new content for you to discover, too!

  • New Fabled level 110 versions of the Portal to the Past zones are now available, and will include new treasures!
  • These new Fabled zones will also work for those who are looking to complete the returning Time Traveler Achievement, or the Hunt the Past Quest.

New Public Quest: 

  • You can find "Camping the AC!" located in the Portal to the Past: Southern Desert of Ro. Completing this quest will reward you with new rewards!

New Portals:

  • Entry portals to The Chronoweave appear to have opened up in The Commonlands, Myrist, and the Coliseum of Valor.

New Items:

  • Erben Delki, the Chronoportal merchant in The Chronoweave, is now selling the following 6 new items:
    • Heat Upon You
    • To the Tavern
    • The City of Hate
    • Islands of Sky
    • A Dire Warning
    • Golden Firiona Vie Statue
  • Plus, everyone who logs on during the event (between now and March 31, 2019) will receive the "Rise of Kunark" house painting!

TLE servers:

  • On the Fallen Gate server, the entire event will be active!

 

If all this talk of time travel has spun your head in circles, you can review an in-depth guide to the Chronoportal Phenomenon and its returning features over at ZAM


Will you step through the Chronoportals before they shut on March 31st?
