Today’s the big day, and there’s a ton of information out there already about the features of EQ2’s latest expansion! Bide your time until the servers come up by checking out all the goodies:

Without further ado, here are the patch notes!

Following the events of Sentinel’s Fate, the twin Swords of Destiny, Soulfire and the Qeynos Claymore, have been drained of their powers, setting the stage for the destruction of the EverQuest universe. The prophecy known as Age’s End begins to unfold in the legendary continent of Velious, and it is here where the war for Norrath will arise. For there to be any chance to save Norrath, the Swords of Destiny must be restored.

Norrathian guardians who undertake this burden will be tested by labyrinthine dungeons, the harsh Velious tundra, and powerful creatures including the God of War himself, Rallos Zek. To succeed will mean ultimate glory. To fail could mean annihilation.

Destiny of Velious Features:

  • Soar high above Norrath with flying mounts
  • Crawl your way through 10 dangerous dungeons
  • Complete four new Heritage Quests
  • Battle through more than 300 new quests
  • Craft through more than 60 new tradeskill quesfts
  • Conquer one new truly massive contested dungeon
  • Discover two new overland zones
  • Defeat four new raid instances
  • Collect more than 1,000 new weapons and items
  • Journey through a new Signature Quest line
  • Slay more than 30 new creatures
  • Equip more than 100 new armor sets
  • New AA abilities with an increased cap of 300

Erollisi Day 2011 went live on February 9, and it runs through February 20. There are new craftables, new quests and quest rewards, and lots of love-ins happening across Norrath, so get out there and have fun! You can check out a write-up of this year’s events at EQ2i, and EQ2 Traders has images of the new crafted items, rewards, and purchasables.

Lucan D’Lere will be merging with Crushbone on February 16! For what to expect, check out Zam’s Server Merger article. Make sure that you read over the character name priority guidelines, and prepare for disruptions in access to chat channels, mail, and friends lists. While you shouldn’t experience any issues to housing or existing mail, I recommend taking the following steps just to cover all your bases:

  • Make sure you’ve read all mail in your mailbox and retrieved all attachments. You may not be able to access messages immediately after the server comes up, so sort all that out beforehand.
  • Save a copy of each character’s house layout just in case you find things are wonky when the merge is complete. You can save a layout by clicking the “Save Layout” button in your in-home house access window (type /house or right-click on the door).
  • Log on each character before the servers come down for the merge. Name priority is given first to characters logged in within the past 60 days, then to the character with the most play-time. You can compare your characters to those on Crushbone by doing a character name search on EverQuest2.com. Click on the character names to compare the total time played.

The last bit of big news is a reminder that Destiny of Velious arrives February 22! Be sure to get your prelude quests wrapped up and your pre-order placed, then brace yourself for all the goodies that will come with the new expansion!
