January 16, 2021 - Extended Downtime Warning

On Wednesday, January 20, all servers will come down at 6 a.m. Pacific for a downtime that is expected to last up to 6 hours. This will be for company-wide infrastructure maintenance. You can find the official Daybreak post here.

January 12, 2021 - Tuesday Patch

We "should" be back to our patching schedule of the second and fourth Tuesday in each month ... I think. Patch notes for the patch in the morning can be found here.

January 04, 2021 - Frostfell Ending

Happy New Year!

It has been confirmed that the in-game calendar is incorrect and that, as per the testing thread, my site, etc., Frostfell will end tomorrow night (the 5th) at 11:59 p.m. Pacific instead of at 7 a.m. Enjoy those few extra hours, folks!

Meanwhile, I am having issues editing the left menubar still/again, and until the hubbyogre can fix it, here is a link to an in-progress page that corrals all the event, expansion and house item preview videos from myself and Ocarinah.

December 25, 2020 - Happy Holidays!

I am wishing all of you and your families a safe and happy holiday season!

If you are working on RoS requisitions and Gundeg will not give you a quest, make sure you have no quest from Fivalt in Echo Caverns in your journal when you speak to Gundeg. (Grab the one from Fivalt after you talk to Gundeg or finish it before you talk to him.) This will be fixed with the next hotfix.

December 17, 2020 - Hotfix Today

I am running out the door for an appointment, but here is a link to the patch notes today. Later today I will update the main RoS article on the site to include some other notes on things, and will make up a page for the Collector's Edition Shar Vahl furniture. (Since I did not see it in the patch notes, this furniture may or may not still be mis-named as Sanctus Seru furniture.)

December 15, 2020 - RoS Launch Day

Launch day for the Reign of Shadows expansion is here. The downtime is expected to be around 6 hours, which will put it at around noon Pacific if all goes well. I will be updating the RoS Crafting & Housing Preview with any last-minute ETA updates, as well as updating it as the day goes on with any issues we might find post-launch. (You will find tons of eye-candy in that article, video links, etc. to distract you while the servers are down.)

December 08, 2020 - RoS Clearinghouse

While everyone scurries around on the first day of Frostfell, I am going to be busy over on beta. I have put together an RoS Crafting and Housing Information Clearinghouse. There isn't a lot there yet, but there will be! For now, it contains links to the various RoS articles I have already created, including a brand-new page for adventuring rewards furniture. More will come in fits and starts when I take a break from testing, so keep an eye on the bottom of that page for updates.

December 08, 2020 - That Time of the Year!

Frostfell will become active after the Tuesday morning patch. Also, since the expansion will release on December 15, remember that the "Haven Bound" prelude event will end when the expansion is released, so you only have another week to earn currency before the quests are gone. (We have been told that the vendor will stick around for a brief while, but do not have an end date, so remember to get that shopping in while you can!

December 04, 2020 - And Another Little Bit

With Frostfell launching next week and the expansion launching the week after, I am scrambling to get all my ducks in a row. Today, I offer you the RoS Purchased Furniture to tide you over until I get the main RoS preview page up.

December 01, 2020 - RoS Carpenter Furniture

The expansion and I are not ready for a full expansion preview yet, but I do have eye-candy for the carpenters and decorators. Enjoy!

November 25, 2020 - Frostfell on Test

Whee. With real life, and beta and Frostfell testing all busy at once my head is spinning. I do have a Frostfell Preview for you, though. I do not know if I will have the time/energy free to do anything with the story running through my head or not, but at least I have the eye-candy done.

November 23, 2020 - Just a Fast Peek

Over the last few days I put together a Vah Shir Character Customization video and another video for Vah Shir Racial Traits. They are not horribly fancy, but at least they get the idea across. I hope they help folks who have not preordered get a feel for what the new race is like.

November 14, 2020 - Heroes Festival Extended

Due to the issues some people have had logging into the game this week, the Heroes Festival has been extended an extra three days. It will now end at 11:59 p.m. Pacific on the 19th.

November 12, 2020 - Login/Patcher Issues

By now, most of you are probably aware that there is a problem with some people logging into the game. This is not a problem with Daybreak, specifically, but with their CDN provider, and they continue to work on the issue. You can find updates, when they are available, here.

To semi-translate this, if my understanding is correct: if you did NOT have your game fully patched, you cannot log into the game right now. Making an end run around the patcher by any sort of "back door" will not solve the problem because you will still need the patch. The patch cannot be handled because a third party is having issues preventing the patcher from communicating properly with the internet and those issues are affecting much more than just Daybreak titles. Until they get their issues sorted out, all Daybreak can do is scream along with us.

November 10, 2020 - Reign of Shadows Beta

The beta test for the Reign of Shadows expansion is available now for those who have preordered the expansion. I have also put together a quick little video of the preorder pet and the Shar Vahl house (house is for Collectors Edition and better).

November 09, 2020 - Beta Begins Tomorrow

Tomorrow, sometime between 10 Pacific and noon, pre-orders for the 17th EverQuest II expansion will begin. Those who preorder will also have access to the beta at that time. (Now is a good time to start patching the beta client, so you don't have to wait on it tomorrow when everyone else is trying to get in.) If you are new to beta, or you need a refresher, I have updated my "So Your Want to Beta Test?" guide.

November 02, 2020 - Oops!

I mistakenly said that there were only 2 more Days of Summer quests in my update earlier today. Counting the one tomorrow, it will be three more new ones to finish off the 2020 lineup. In other news:

We will be performing Launchpad and Uchat maintenance tomorrow, November 3, 2020, beginning at 10 AM PST. Approximate ETA of the maintenance will be 3 hours.
During this maintenance, chat and launchpad will be offline and unavailable, and logins will fail. Players already in the world before the maintenance begins will be able to continue to play (as long as they do not log out).
Do not try to change your password during this time frame, you are not able to log in because of the maintenance.
If all goes well, this will also fix the cross-server chat issues.

November 02, 2020 - Catching Up

Thanks to spending much of last week back in the hospital (I am home again now, and we are praying the last of the post-surgical complications are done with me), I missed posting some timely updates.

Nights of the Dead has ended for another year. The Heroes Festival will begin this Friday. Days of Summer 2020 will have two more new quests for us this year, counting the one that is released tomorrow. The Prelude Event will continue until expansion launch.

And just when is expansion launch? We have not been given a date, yet, but the Producers Letter has announced the name of the expansion, and the start date for preorders. (Preordering grants you access to beta.) The Gear Up, Level Up event for 2020 has also begun.

Go ahead, click the links, they will not bite. I will be off in my pillow fort, trying to preserve my energy for beta and then Frostfell.
