EverQuest II’s Tinkerfest offers new quests, achievements, pets, and craftables


Tinkerfest is live in EverQuest II once again as it always is in summer — “like clockwork,” Daybreak dad-jokes.

“Take up your favorite wrench and celebrate all things gnomish, be they metal, combustive, mathematical, experimental, or a combination thereof! Adventures, rewards, buyables and crafted items await you, both new and familiar. You won’t want to miss all of the fun at Gnomeland Security, your headquarters for all things Tinkerfest, in Steamfont Mountains.”

There is new stuff to toy with this year, including a new hack-‘n’-slash public quest in Antonica and the Commlands, a new achievement, new merchant items, and a new crafter recipe booklet. EQ2 Traders has pics of new toolboxes, a distillery, and metalwork arches, plus a buyable backpack, minipets, and a sweet fabled-tier familiar for high-end tinkers.

Of note: Daybreak says the Fallen Gate progression server, which we’ve previously covered in-depth, won’t get this event this year. The whole shebang runs until August 2nd everywhere else, however.

The public quest for this event is designed pretty well. Any players with tradeskill at artisan 2 or higher can easily participate in the first two stages. Third stage gets a bit tricky as you need enough high levels present to fight towers that pop up, but the lower level characters can still participate by being either bait or a bomb. Either will likely kill you, so plan a way to get back quickly. :P
