Chronoportals 2016

In mid-March of every year, EQ2 celebrates the anniversary of the original EverQuest with a chronoportals event. This event involves portals scattered around the world that lead to long-ago times (events from EQ). Tokens earns from the portals and related quests (ancient platinum coin) can then be spent at chronoportals merchants in Antonica and Commonlands. (Both vendors offer the same items.)

Since this anniversary occurs during the crazed event season for EQ2 (sandwiched between Brewday and Bristlebane Day), now that the event is established, there isn't always much new with it. For 2016, the new offerings are 3 new buyable paintings. The paintings are heirloom and cost 1 ancient platinum coin each.

Returning Quest With House Items

You can choose one of these two items (or Ancient Platinum Coins) for completing the "Hunt the Past" quest. Both housepets are no-trade. Note that you will have to kill special triggered mobs in each of the chronoportal instances in order to complete this quest. (The level requirement on each of the instances is being removed, but low-level folks should proceed with a group of elders, or with much care, when grabbing updates from the higher level instances.)
