The next step for EverQuest II‘s time-locked progression servers (Stormhold and Deathtoll) arrives today with the game’s first expansion. A short downtime for the two servers started at 10:00 a.m. EDT to bring the servers up to snuff, but it’s expected to be about an hour of maintenance as of this writing.
Once the expansions are live, players will be able to raise Adventure, Guild, and Crafting levels up to 60. The first expansion also includes ability mod on items and buffs, macro voiceovers, and guild banks. It’s a long road from here to the game’s current expansion, but players are just a little bit further along now.
