EverQuest Turns 18!

Can you believe that EverQuest is turning EIGHTEEN? We’re kicking off the 18th Anniversary celebration on Thursday, March 16, 2017!

New for the 18th Anniversary

We’ve gone into the vault to finish two Player Designed Missions that groups of players created with the development team during SOE Live 2014. “Fippy’s Further Revenge” and “Delving into Frostcrypt” are new tasks for the 18th Anniversary.

In addition to this, explore Norrath through the anniversary quest “Tsaph’s Day Off” for a special teleport item “Zueria Slide.” When you use this item you can choose if you’d like it to teleport you to Nektulos, Dreadlands, Skyfire, Stonebrunt, Great Divide, or North Ro.

There are also NEW rewards available on jubilant merchants for Commemorative Coins! Look for them in the Special Celebratory Goods section of your find window in the Plane of Knowledge!

These events start Thursday, March 16 at 12:01AM PDT and end on Wednesday, May 10 at 11PM PDT.


Bonus Experience

Starting on our anniversary, players will earn BONUS EXPERIENCE on ALL servers for the rest of March!

Bonus XP STARTS Thursday, March 16 at 12:01AM PDT and ENDS Friday, March 31, 2017 at 11:59PM PDT.

Marketplace Addition: Teir`Dal Heritage Crate

As a special addition for the 18th anniversary, there’s a Dark Elf themed crate in the Marketplace. Each of these crates has one random item from the Teir`Dal Heritage set, and if you’re lucky you’ll get a complete set of unique Dark Elf Hero’s Forge armor or a special Fourth Gate Guardian illusion!

Anniversary Content From Previous Years

All of the anniversary content from the 14th - 17th anniversary will also go live on Thursday, March 16 at 12:01AM PDT.

For normal servers this includes ALL of the Player Designed Missions, the Hate’s Fury Raid, and the Plane of War Mission “War Games.”

Also the Gnome Race is back on ALL servers! This event happens a few times each day. Server-wide messages will go out prior to each race, so you always have a chance to join if you want.

  • Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays this event starts at 12AM (midnight) PDT, 6AM PDT, 12PM (noon), PDT and 6PM PDT.
