EverQuest II: Tears of Veeshan

EQ2's 10th expansion sets players against the mighty Kerafyrm.

As a long-time EQ devotee in both its current incarnations, there are certain words that very quickly stir my blood and they include "Kerafyrm" and "Veeshan".

In EverQuest II's 10th expansion, Tears of Veeshan, not only is SOE making me feel old that there are so many expansions, but the team is firmly pressing some very large lore buttons to make Norrathians quake with delight and fear.

With the action putting heroes in the Eternal Broodlands, players will rediscover Lord Yelinak, now serving as the keeper of the Vesspyr Isles. Apparently Kerafyrm the Awakened is splitting asunder the veil between worlds through the use of his stolen Tear.

As soon as Kerafyrm gets involved—whether he is slumbering or not—the stakes rise instantly and the new expansion hints at much drama and epic battle, with the promise that players will bear witness to the dawning of a new Age.

Players who dare to broach the threshold of EverQuest II: Tears of Veeshan—known coloquially as buying it—can expect a variety of large additions including:

  • Overland Dragon Realm - Adventure, amenities, quests, collections, and more!
  • New Dungeons (9)
  • New Channeler Class!
  • Dragon-themed AAs
  • New itemization focused on flexibility
  • Variety of Quests - Signature, story, point-of-interest & dropped quests, missions, collections
  • AA limit raised to 340
  • Tradeskill apprentice items
  • New PvP item tier

You won't have to wait long to attempt to turn the tide against Kerafyrm's draconic army, Tears of Veeshan will arrive later this year.

The main thing that interests me in a new expansion:
what will the new level be?
will here be new tradeskill recipes?
will there be good solo zones?
How about making the mercs behave better?
what's in it for the lower levels- yeah i'm 95 but my alts aren't so is it just for my main or is there something for everyone? if it is just for my main, how do i justify buying a whole expansion for only one toon?

1. Only AA is increasing to 340. No level increase.
2. New Heroic and Raid recipes, and they realized they never added level 90 tradeskill books, so those as well.
3. One overland zone. Can't say whether or not it'll be "good" until beta. :)
4. That's a question for SOE. It would be nice if Perrin would interrupt his temp group buff casting to heal me at times!
5. There will be a new Channeler class, though that doesn't help your current alts much. There will also be a new "dragon" alt advancement tree to work on.

Hope that helped some... :D
beta signup?
