'EverQuest' Celebrates 23rd Anniversary With New In-Game Adventures

by Rainier on March 16, 2022 @ 1:24 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 numerous expansions and countless content updates.

EverQuest is turning 23!

n celebration of its anniversary, Darkpaw Games has prepared a new mission, some new quests, a new raid, and achievements players can earn from now and until May 10. Additionally, EverQuest also has a little surprise gift for players just for logging in and celebrating with them from now through April 20th.

New adventures for this year include:

  • Quest – The Known Laws of Aviation: Giraga the troll has come to the sphinxes for information. He asked a warrior in her town to train her to be as strong as him. He laughed and told her, 'mebbe when fish fly.' Giraga has never seen a flying fish, so she has gone to the sphinxes for help. They gave her a book full of riddles and, presumably, solving them will lead her to flying fish.
  • Quest – Paintings Playing Poker: Big Slick Jones loves his poker, and one of his early poker memories is the stories that would be told about the crows playing poker at his hometown tavern, getting him interested in the craft. He'd love to hear more about the other paintings around Norrath and if they're still up.
  • Quest – Death Finds a Way: Krastoraab, Acolyte of the Cycle, has a story that he wishes to tell any who is willing to hear it. A story about the cycle of life, death, and everything in between. He needs the  help of several spirits who have since passed, and he is waiting for their cycle to begin anew.
  • Mission – Beyond Espoir: Players can pick up a quest from Krastoraab who will send them out to meet several disciples of the cycle. It'll then be up to them to fight each of the disciples in order to understand the importance of the cycle. There are lots of steps to tackle, but the rewards will be worth it.
  • Raid – Mad Emperor: Rumors have been spreading about activity in Karnor's Castle. Eerie green lights, screams, etc. Not that these things never happen in the castle, but never this frequently!

Returning events

If players are looking for some fun and are over level 100, previous top hits are returning, including Sailor Twift with her Riveting Tales. If they don’t have time to help spread the Unity among the Gnolls and would like a shorter adventure, they can head to the Plane of Knowledge and speak with Maitreya, the Maitre D, who needs some help making a Fancy Feast.

If fans are not quite up to the level 100+ quests, there are plenty of lower-level quests to enjoy. If they are not ready to head out for summer, stop by Geia Korrel and head back to school with School Supplies. Or if helping a lovesick Iksar is more to their liking, they can speak with an Emissary of Erollisi in the Plane of Knowledge.

No party is complete without eating some delicious Platinum Anniversary Cake in scenic locations. While players are out in the world adventuring, they can take the time to explore over seventeen years of anniversary content.

It's a great time to explore Norrath like never before and celebrate EverQuest’s birthday. Fans can speak with the Mechanical Fortune Teller in Plane of Knowledge for details on these past and current celebrations. Darkpaw Games invites you to hop in, strap on your armor and weapons, and have fun!
