Holly Longdale’s recent producer’s letter for EverQuest II offered a slew of news, including the announcement that time-locked PvE and PvP servers are coming to the game this year. Unlike the progression servers of its elder sibling, which combine time and progress restrictions, EQII’s could just lock content at a point of time in the game’s history.
But that’s up to the community: Daybreak is asking for feedback in order to make the servers what the players really want. Another notable factoid Longdale let loose was that the design is moving toward less handholding and more allowing players to figure things out because the devs “want EQII to be a thinker’s and strategist’s game.”
Other news includes the just-released Rum Cellar-themed items to the Marketplace (namely, a Rumrunner prestige home, home decor sets, and Zeppelin mount), the June 23rd release of four new Echoes of Faydwer Fabled Dungeons (Acadechism, Court of Innovation, Crypt of Valdoon, and Freethinker Hideout), the addition of Erollisi to deity system in July, and more.
