EverQuest II: Altar of Malice Launch Guides

The Altar of Malice expansion is here!

All servers are fully patched for the Altar of Malice expansion! This post was getting lengthy, so here's some quick links to hop between specific sections:

The Heroes' Festival is Back!

The Heroes' Festival, EverQuest II's annual live event first introduced in 2009, will make its return tonight! The event is scheduled to run from 12:01am PST on Friday, November 7th through 11:59pm PST on Monday, November 17th.

While the older quests are expected to make a return in Freeport and Qeynos, we should also have some new content to celebrate the 10th anniversary! Heroes' Festival did not make an appearance on Test this year because the devs wanted to have the new content be fresh when it landed on Live, so we'll be staying up late tonight to add whatever is new in as soon as it launches. UPDATE: New quest - The Play's the Thing!

Centered primarily at the Claymore in Qeynos Capitol District and Execution Plaza in the City of Freeport, players can participate in several event quests, visit the Heroes' Festival merchant and check out associated achievements. For those of you with far too many alts check out our Heroes' Festival Quest Tracker!

EverQuest II: The Aerakyn Are Coming

EverQuest II will be releasing its new player race, the Aerakyn, on November 11, 2014. The race is a stand-alone feature, not tied in any way to the Altar of Malice expansion (which releases the same day to All Access members), and will be available for purchase through a variety of offerings in the Station Cash Marketplace.

We spoke to Creative Director Akil "Lyndro" Hooper and Senior Producer Holly "Windstalker" Longdale about the Aerakyn, their features and abilities, and more.

Patch Notes - Tuesday, November 4, 2014

All servers came down for the weekly hotfix this morning. Here are the patch notes:


GENERAL

The City Festival Starts Tonight!

With all the excitement of Nights of the Dead and Altar of Malice beta it'd be easy to forget that November 1st will bring us the Freeport City Festival!  The festival is planned to start on November 1st at 12:01am PDT and run until November 7th at 11:59pm PST. You can find the Far Seas Caravan in the Commonlands between the Crossroads and the Freeport Griffon Tower.

An Aether Race will also be available in Commonlands during the festival. Participate and achieve a time of 119 seconds or less to earn the Portal Jumper prefix title! Begin the race by speaking to the referee near the docks.

Downtime - Tuesday, October 28, 2014

Both US and EU servers will come down on October 28, 2014 at 7am PT (2pm BST) for an update. Expected downtime for both sets of servers is two hours. Here is the patch note:


GENERAL
Beta mounts should no longer spam a failure when zoning if you are below level 95.
