Chronoportals 2023

Chronomages view the past as very wibbly wobbly and have this tendency to fling adventurers into the past. Welcome to the 2023 Chronoportal Phenomenon, where players celebrate the anniversary of the original EverQuest by revisiting special events from EQ's past. This event will run from 12:01 a.m. Pacific on March 3 through 11:59 p.m. on March 16, 2023. After the event is completed, the merchants will move from the Chronoweave instance to Antonica and the Commonlands from March 17 through March 31, 2023.


The event this year will include all the returning buyables, the returning collection, the chronportal instances, the overseer series, and eleven new buyables. The live servers will also get a new painting in the Southern Desert of Ro Public Quest (PQ) and a new petamorph wand is a reward choice for the "Beyond the Shimmering Portal" quest. The special rule servers will have the following content:

  • Tarinax & Varsoon - Overseer quests, event merchant, Portals to the Past: Qeynos Hills, Plains of Karana, Qeynos Ruins, Steamfont, Nagafen's Lair, and Southern Desert of Ro can all be found in The Chronoweave for you!
  • Kaladim & Kael Drakkel - The entire event is active, with the exception of Beyond the Shimmering Portal, Miragul's Madness, and the Fabled zones, due to their level.

New Purchased Items

Glowing purple portals can be found in Myrist, the Coliseum of Valor, Antonica, The Commonlands, Enchanted Lands, Thundering Steppes, Steamfont Mountains, Lavastorm, Sinking Sands, Feerrott, and Moors of Ykesha that lead to the Chronoweave instance. There you will find Distun Dekli selling various items for the Ancient Platinum Coin currency. The following new items will be sold on this merchant for 1 Ancient Platinum Coin each.
