Mighty Norrathians!

Since SOE Live and Game Update 67: Darkness Dawns there’s been a lot of focus and excitement here about Heroic Characters and this year’s expansion, Tears of Veeshan. We’re well on our way and working hard!

To begin with, we have some date adjustments. Our expansion launch date has moved out a bit to mid-November and our Level 85 Heroic Characters are likely coming in the first week of October.

We got some great feedback on Heroic Characters and we wanted to polish it up to make it more user-friendly before we launch! We are still working on fine-tuning the details and I will have more info soon, I promise. Until we nail it down, I don’t want to throw misinformation about.

The introduction of Heroic Characters also made us change a few other things, like including EverQuest II: Destiny of Velious zones into the Free and Silver account access so Heroic Characters have a place to play! And while we are still going to offer theEverQuest II: Age of Discovery expansion, we will also sell the features individually, including the Beastlord class, Mercenaries, Dungeon Maker, Reforging, and Tradeskill Apprentices. We’re still working on pricing and have some other cool things in progress we’ll announce shortly.

Our 10th expansion, EverQuest II: Tears of Veeshan, is getting closer to Beta. This team is putting together an expansion that will be something special! The overland — Vesspyr Isles, the Eternal Broodlands — is really amazing. Flying through it is incredible with more and more variety and flavor every day. The dungeons are coming together beautifully and the content is too! We appreciate all the feedback we got during SOE Live and are grateful for all the playtests of the Channeler class. We are putting final touches on that too.

When Beta opens on Oct. 15, we hope you’ll come take a look at Tears of Veeshan and give us feedback!

There will be lots more to come so you’ll be hearing from me sooner ™ rather than later!

    Guess I'll hold on until then. I was thinking about buying the 2 expansions but now i know to wait and just buy Age of Discovery. Hopefully Pro7 will sell them at a reasonable price.

    Or I will just use my SoE account and hopefully they will change my country and currency to British pounds instead of United States, Dollars.

    whats puzzling to me is why Heroic characters in EQ2 when EQ1 needs them?  If you could have a character 10 levels shy of max level with 3,000 AAs in EQ1 a LOT of people would come back.


    Catch up in EQ2 isnt bad.  In EQ1 its a nightmare.

    EQ 1's graphics are outdated and a lot of players would be put off by it, having said that EQ is a lot better in way of game play. EU players would have trouble in playing it any way, SoE no longer supports new EU accounts. Once EQN comes out some people who are new to everquest lore will likely try EQ 2 than EQ 1 in terns of the graphics.
