A holiday event favored by many fans, EverQuest II’s Nights of the Dead has begun. And for the very first time, the Time-Locked Expansion server Stormhold will also get to partake in the Halloween festivities! From now until 2:59 a.m. EDT on November 3rd, players can participate in all the spooky shenanigans of the season, from visiting haunted houses and mazes to collecting candy to buying and crafting creepy items. Let’s not leave out the yearly rubbing of elbows with ghosts, zombies, werewolves, and vampires. There is, however, one exception to the revelry: It appears that a bug on Stormhold will prevent those players from completing The Headless Horseman epic event.
Although there don’t appear to be any new quests to complete for 2016, there is a new collection, new illusions, new house items, and a new NotD recipe book. You can get a peek at the new items for sale on the holiday merchant, the new craftable items, and the patchwork spider mounts available on the Marketplace in the gallery below.
