The Year of Darkpaw: An EverQuest® Celebration has officially launched! Here are the things that were released today! This is far from all, however, so stay tuned to keep updated on all the events!
The Orc Warrior metamorph wand is our first giveaway item, which we teased in the Producer’s Letter. It’s only available through the end of January, so be sure to grab yours before then! It is available per character too, so get it for all your alts!
We are thrilled to announce the Anniversary Tower which will arrive in the game on January 17, 2024! This tower features 11 floors to be unlocked over time via quests called the Tower Trials. Each Trial quest consists of a task that sends you off to various places across Norrath to find a key that unlocks a tower door! Once inside, prepare yourself for a unique encounter you must overcome to collect your currency! Inside the tower resides a vendor with items you can spend your Year of Darkpaw Timeless Tokens currency on. You can earn these tokens the first time you complete each Trial quest and each time you complete a Heroic Adventure as well as completing the collection each month! The tower can be found in North Ro, be sure to look to the skies near the water's edge to find it!
Starting this month, there will also be limited edition items for sale in the Marketplace. January’s item is an Argent Clockwork Bear Saddle. Be sure to get this unique and beautiful bear before the end of the month!
While you're in the game, don't forget to find all the items in the January collection, Gnoll Essences (Blackburrow). Those special January shinies won't be spawning come February.
In other news, we will have an AMA (Ask Me Anything) thread posted on the forums where you all can post questions for our staff to answer for you. This thread will open for questions beginning on January 10, 2024, and remain open until February 14, 2024. So, start a list of things you might have wanted to ask so you’re prepared!
We also have social media contests, events, and more beginning later this month! Practice using #yearofdarkpaw now, as you will need it later! Be sure to watch all our social media platforms and forums to get some goodies and fun times throughout 2024!
This is only the beginning of what will be a stellar year that we have planned for you all for the Year of Darkpaw: An EverQuest® Celebration!
