'EverQuest' Celebrates 19th Anniversary With New Progression Server

by Rainier on March 15, 2018 @ 12:25 p.m. PDT

EverQuest is an MMORPG that features a multitude of adventures and quests with an interactive storyline that evolves according to a player's individual decisions.

While everyone was worrying about the world ending with Y2K in 1999, Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) was busy creating a new world that forever changed the MMO and gaming industry with the introduction of EverQuest.

When it launched, EverQuest (EQ) redefined the online game landscape, introducing the concepts of raiding and guilds within an immersive 3D environment. Since then EQ has maintained its loyal fanbase with numrtous expansions and countless content updates. 

Tomorrow Daybreak Games is releasing the Coirnav Progression Server to celebrate Everquest’s 19th Anniversary!

Coirnav is a True Box Progression Server where players relive the game’s earliest days. Beginning their adventures at level 1, players raid their way through the Ruins of Kunark to Gates of Discord and beyond. Like other Progression and special ruleset servers, All Access Membership is needed to play on Coirnav, and players will only be able to play on one EverQuest account from each one of their computers.

Additionally, starting tomorrow until May 10th, players on live servers can celebrate with four new Depths of Darkhollow and Mayong Mistmoore-themed missions and previous years' anniversary content. Players will also earn 50% bonus experience on ALL servers from March 16-March 31!

New Anniversary Missions

We’ve got four new tasks for you to complete, including “Lost but Not Forgotten,” “A Formal Dinner Party,” "Pieces is Pieces," and "Fish Eyes in the Dark." Each of these tasks are Depths of Darkhollow and Mayong Mistmoore-themed!

As always, there is also a hidden bonus reward for each task that you can earn by doing something special!

For additional details on these tasks, you can look in your achievements pane under Events → Anniversary, or speak to the Mechanical Fortune Teller in the Plane of Knowledge.

There is also a new mount available from the jubilant merchants for Commemorative Coins! You can see the rewards you can earn in the Special Celebratory Goods section of your find window in the Plane of Knowledge.

These new events kick off on Friday, March 16, 2018, and you'll be able to participate in these celebrations until Thursday, May 10, 2018.

Returning Anniversary Content

All of the previous years' anniversary content from the 14th - 18th anniversaries will go live alongside new content on Friday, March 16, 2018.

On Thursday, April 12, 2018 the anniversary content from the 5th - 13th anniversaries will return! These events will also run until Thursday, May 10, 2018.

Celebrating this year's anniversary on a Progression Server? As with most special events, content will be made available in the era that it originally unlocked.

Bonus Experience

Starting on our anniversary, players will earn 1.5x bonus experience on ALL servers for the rest of March!

You can start earning this bonus XP on Friday, March 16, 2018. The bonus will continue to run through Saturday, March 31, 2018.
