Do you like surprises? As long as they’re good, right? Well, EverQuest players can breathe a little easier once they realize that today’s “surprise” patch is quite beneficial.
“There’s an in-game issue we need to fix so we wanted to take advantage of the opportunity and address a couple of other things, namely a few improvements to experience gains,” Holly Longdale said on the forums.
Today’s patch increases XP gains for high-level characters questing in older zones, bumps up mercenary task XP, and adds a potion to the marketplace that triggers a 75% XP buff.[Source: EverQuest forums. With thanks to Starbuck for correcting our EQ1/EQ2 goofup!]
