Quest Feather Colors
Death is rampant across Norrath. Citizens are suddenly falling dead as their spirits are torn from their bodies. No one on Norrath seems to understand why the souls are being pulled from the mortal plane, but all signs point to a massive disturbance within Ethernere, the realm of the dead. The heroes of the world must travel to Ethernere to find the cause of the unbalance in the Grey Wastes, and discover what has become of its caretaker – the mysterious being known as Drinal. If the heroes can return balance to Ethernere, the siphoning of souls may be halted. Should they fail, both the living and the dead will suffer a dismal fate.
Introducing EverQuest II: Chains of Eternity! This is the 9th expansion of the revolutionary EverQuest II franchise. This expansion contains must-have features such as level increases, prestige abilities and new game items only available with this expansion, such as adornments that become more powerful with your character. Also, explore new content in two spirit-realm versions of familiar lands, and experience adventure with new dungeons and quests. Put right the imbalance in the Ethernere!
There is no physical version of this expansion. It cannot be purchased with Station Cash.
|The items in the Standard and Collector's Editions will be one per character. The only exception to this is the AA Boost feature, which is limited to two per account.|
You will need to own Age of Discovery in order to use the mercenary.
The preorder ends at 11:59pm on November 12th. The expansion launches on November 13th.
|1. Mercs are per character. You can choose either the Templar or the Paladin Lujien (werewolf) in Freeport or Qeynos mercenary dens. They will both be available for you to hire on all your characters.|
2. The Collector's Edition mercs have significantly higher stats and confidence than the standard mercs (they can take a lot more of a challenge before they cower/debuff).
3. The Collector's Edition mercs will cost the same to hire as the standard mercs.
4. The Pre-Order for CoE will be available until the expansion goes live on Nov. 13 according to our Marketing team.
|SOE Live Attendees:|
For SOE Live attendees, you will be able to pre-order an upgrade to the Collector's Edition for $20.00. If you want to upgrade your free Standard Edition to the Collector's Edition, you'll need to go through the regular pre-order process and select the Collector's Edition. You will see the current price ($59.99 USD or foreign currency equivalent) as well as a footnote indicating the price for SOE Live attendees is set at $20.00 (USD or foreign currency equivalent).
Complete the pre-order flow for this item. On the day your credit card is charged for the purchase, you will only be charged $20.00, not $59.99. You MUST complete this purchase flow on the account you registered for SOE Live with; otherwise, you will be charged the full amount.
Also, this must be completed during the pre-order time frame (now through November 12, 2012 at 11:59pm Pacific Time).
We'll upload pictures of the bonus items as they are released by SOE.
