EQ2: GU65 / Chains of Eternity patch notes

NadiaNadia Topsham, MainePosts: 11,866Member Uncommon

From the EQ2 Forums:

Chains of Eternity is EverQuest II’s 9th expansion! In Chains of Eternity, adventurers will travel to the realm known as Ethernere in their quest to stop the siphoning of souls from Norrath. Here, the heroes will fight to save not only the mortals of their world, but prevent the imbalance in Ethernere, as well as meet the God of the afterlife, Drinal, the Silver Reaper. They may yet find the answer lies not in fortunes and portents, but deep in Norrath’s past. Adventurers will also uncover all new areas in the mortal realm of Norrath.

The fate of the living and the dead are in your hands, heroes! Are you up to the challenge before you?

    Coin Limit removed on f2p account, Great news. I know quite a few people that will come back for this.

    The tinkering change is very cool.  The biggie is the coin limit removal.  This renews my interest in my characters again because I was way over the coin limit from my last Gold status stint.

    Boo, at no warden buffs.  It's not that wardens suck, but they just aren't what they used to be and they certainly aren't the in demand healers.

    Centuries ago, in primitive times, before the dawn of civilization, there were things that would be inconceivable to us today; such things as poverty, disease, violence, senility, and love.
