Daybreak Players Step Up to Organize Fan Faire

Shortly before the sale of Sony Online Entertainment - now Daybreak Games - was announced, the word went out: SOE Live wasn't happening this year. Formerly known as Fan Faire, the annual gathering of players and SOE developers to celebrate their favorite games had become a vacation mainstay for many people.

After the announcement a dedicated group of players decided to pick up the project themselves. Project Fan Faire is in motion, but because there no big backers, they are running a Kickstarter in an attempt to fund the event. Tickets include admission to the event, three catered meals, and access to all player panels.

For more information, like Project Fan Faire on Facebook, or check out their website or Kickstarter!

Double Experience Weekend!

Announced this evening for EverQuest was a double XP weekend (for all players):

Starting at 12:01PM PDT on Friday, April 3, and running until 9:00AM PDT on Monday, April 6, 2015 don't miss your chance for extra experience!

And for EverQuest II (for All Access members):

EverQuest II: Campaigns, Pirates & Rumpocolypse

Yes, we know it's April Fools Day. This announcement is 100% serious.

One of the major concerns players had back in February was whether or not content would continue to roll in as expected for EverQuest II. In a Producer's Letter released this evening by Executive Producer Holly "Windstalker" Longdale, it was announced that the team will now be releasing content in "campaigns" in lieu of the common expansions and game updates we have become accustomed to in years past. We attended a roundtable with Holly this afternoon to discuss this change as well as the upcoming Rum Cellar campaign and beyond.

UPDATE April 2nd: Clarification on zone instance types has been included below.

Downtime - Thursday, April 2, 2015

US live servers will be brought offline on Thursday, April 2, 2015 at 7am PT for an update. Estimated downtime is approximately one hour. EU servers will be brought offline on Thursday, April 2, 2015 at 9pm PT (5am London Time) for an update. Expected downtime is one hour. The Antonia Bayle and Everfrost servers came down for a 12-hour downtime at 2am PT for server migration and maintenance.

These patch notes were posted late Thursday afternoon.


ITEMS

  • Increased the consistency of many Altar of Malice procs.
  • Constructed shoulderpads awarded via The Unfinished Journey may now be upgraded with a Purple Malice Gemstone.

The City Festival Has Begun!

April is here and it brings with it the Qeynos City Festival! The festival will run until April 7th at 11:59pm PDT.

As a reminder, April 1st is also the Highest of the Silly Days and there are special Bristlebane Day events happening, including bunny collections!

EQII Producer's Letter: Class Changes

Executive Producer Holly "Windstalker" Longdale posted the latest EQ2 Producer's Letter on Tuesday. In it she discusses class changes coming to the Beta server this week, as well as recent performance issues and Bristlebane Day.

See the entire letter below and join the discussion on the official forums!

The Highest of Silly Days - April 1st Only!

April Fools Day marks the Highest of Silly Days for the Bristlebane Day celebration. Three quests are only available on this day (one is new), given by the sphinx Imenand just off the dock in the Enchanted Lands. Test your brain by trying to solve his many riddles and take a gamble at your choice of house pet rewards.

If you've been waiting for a Berry-fed Bovich since last year they'll be available on the Marketplace for 2250SC. There will be a new winged version, shown above, available for 2950SC.

In your travels you may have noticed bunnies all over Norrath. Today, and only today can you collect the silly wabbits and earn four Bunny Achievements! The 500 bunnie achievement was added this year.

Players can also harvest from the Jester's Superior Gardens on this day, which are found in Enchanted Lands. These gardens give harvests from every holiday event that has crafting, so be sure you have a lot of backpack space to spare! Those wanting to sneak in some mid-year Frostfell crafting can do so as well. Check the Marketplace for some special Bristlebane Day promotional items!

The Highest of Silly Days starts as soon as it's April 1 in Pacific time, and goes until 11:59pm PDT on April 1st.
