The Return of the 14th Anniversary Player Missions!03-18-2014
By: Ry “Roshen” Schueller
Come celebrate the 15th anniversary of EverQuest by completing special missions from EverQuest’s history! For a limited time, play through unique missions that were designed during our 2012 SOE Live "Design a Mission" panel.
Starting March 19, 2014
A necromancer by the name of Xmiticzin has obtained a larger piece of a Cazic's shard and gained control over the artifact vault in Chapterhouse of the Fist. The Harbingers want his shard as part of their mission to revive Cazic Thule. Unfortunately, he is barricaded inside the vault and forces anyone trying to reach him to play demented games. In order to defeat him, you'll have to get through his games alive.
Big Gnomes, Big Problems
Giant skeletons have started attacking the gates of Ak'anon, and threaten to crush the small gnome army defending it. Join the resistance and help them not only stop the giant skeleton invasion, but uncover who's behind it all. Gnomish inventors will aid you in your mission, granting you boons like super-size, a flamethrower, and a top-secret bunny disguise. Best of all, the mission is level-agnostic, allowing characters of any level play through it together without the use of shrouds.
Ogres at the Gates
Sheriff Knotter Botter has gone out to discover the source of the giant skeletons attacking the gates of Ak'anon. After finding a camp of ogres to the northeast, the sheriff is convinced that the ogres are necromancers enchanting their dead and sending them to attack the gates.
Unable to approach the ogres, the sheriff asks you to find a way to disguise yourself like the ogres and speak to them in order to discover whether they are the ones behind the giant skeleton attacks.
The missions that start March 19th will be live in game until Wednesday, April 30, 2014!
Starting March 26, 2014
Piestro's Day Off
Piestro was enjoying a day off wandering about the Great Divide, when the designers contacted him and gave him some alarming news: Bristlebane is making a huge stink about how the developers haven't paid him any attention lately, so he kidnapped one of them and stashed them away in the Plane of Mischief!
The design team has asked Piestro to find some brave adventurers to rescue the captured developer. You will have to play by Bristlebane's rules in his realm and become one of his wacky minions. What tricks does Bristlebane have in store for you and your fellow adventurers? Find out by entering the Plane of Mischief!
Evil Eye Operative
Huckle Thornleaf is the last remaining member of a covert task force whose sole focus was to gather intelligence on Xorbb's army. Alone in the woods, Huckle is bound by honor to remain at his post, but worries for the safety of his comrades who he believes were captured by Xorbb's minions. Luckily Huckle has a plan, and it involves you using the guise of an evil eye to infiltrate Xorbb's stronghold and rescue the remaining task force members.
