Ankh of Ydall will now correctly apply its crit bonus to the group.

Queen's Colony

John Smedley Steps Down as Daybreak CEO

Earlier tonight, GamesBeat broke the news that John Smedley has stepped down from his position as President and CEO of Daybreak Game Company. This move comes in the wake of recent DDoS attacks and the subsequent deletion of Smedley's social media accounts (most notably on Twitter and Reddit). According to Daybreak's spokesperson, Smedley will be "taking some time off from the company" before "transitioning to a different role to be determined."

To take up the reigns of President is COO Russell Shanks, who has been with the company since its inception. Continue reading after the jump for some personal commentary on this development from former PlanetSide 2 Creative Director Matt Higby.

Time-Locked Expansion Servers Now Live

The Stormhold (PvE) and Deathtoll (PvP) TLE servers are now open for business! Players with All Access accounts can create new level 1 characters on either of these progression servers. Voting to unlock content occurs after 30 days, unless a server chooses to not progress at least three times, then the gaps between votes becomes 90 days.

So far the servers have been stable and flooded with players.

In the Stormhold and Deathtoll Marketplace is a free (per character) 16-slot bag. Since you start with a 4-slot bag, this is bound to be quite the help! There's also a special surprise zone awaiting to greet those who create characters on the TLE servers. Let's just say that it floats and gets attacked by a dragon.

Downtime - Tuesday, July 21, 2015

Both US and EU servers will be brought offline on Tuesday, July 21, 2015 at 7am PT (3pm London Time) for an update. Estimated downtime for both sets of servers is approximately one hour.

The two Time Locked Expansion (TLE) servers will launch on Tuesday as well, with an ETA of Noon PT.

Play on NEW Time-Locked Expansion servers and get a fresh start in EverQuest II. Be part of a vibrant community from the start and have your voice be heard as you decide each server’s destiny.

These are special servers that are only available to All Access members.

Players will have the option to vote to unlock content on Stormhold (PvE) and Deathtoll (PvP) servers every 30-days. The voting period will last a week, and if the server votes not to unlock the next expansion, the vote will start again after 30-days.

If the server chooses not to unlock content three times in a row, the votes for the next expansion will change to 90-days in-between votes. This will reset back to 30-days in-between votes after an expansion is successfully unlocked on your server.

Players must be within 20 levels of current content cap to be eligible to vote.

Here are the patch notes:

The mercenary den is once again available in Qeynos andFreeport.

Fixed a bug that was causing many spells to spam time-locked server restrictions.

The Finisher IV has had its passive bonus increased.

"Great Balls of Fire" - Mad Mattie should offer this quest for everyone until 50 completions.

Pumice Stone is now available from the expendables merchant.

Downtime - Monday, July 20, 2015

Both US and EU servers will be coming down at 7am PT (10am ET/3pm London Time) on Monday, July 20, 2015 for maintenance in preparation for this week's launch of the Time-Locked Expansion servers. Downtime is estimated to be one hour. There are no patch notes as this is simply a maintenance session.

Don't forget to join the EQ2 team this Wednesday over on Twitch at 2pm PT for a livestream from the TLE Stormhold server!

Join Holly "Windstalker" Longdale, Kyle "Kander" Vallee, Carlos "Gninja" Mora, and Ry “Roshen” Schueller for this stream as we share some behind-the-scenes information on how the Time-Locked Expansion servers came together, and hang out on the Stormhold server.
