The event itself finds Norrath being overrun by rampaging elementals, wreaking havoc across the land. It’s up to players to join forces with Freeport’s Academy of Arcane Science and Qeynos’s Concordium to help investigate the outbreak of elemental rage, discover its source, and put an end to the madness before things go completely sideways. There’s plenty of incentive for players to lend aid, as those who participate in the event will acquire elemental storm shreds which can be exchanged for any of the 41 new items added to the Academy of Arcane Science and Concordium vendors. For the full details, check out the announcement on the game’s official site.
Daybreak Games announced the commencement of a new event in EverQuest II, Against the Elements. But it’s not just any event — it’s an expansion prelude event, confirming that the venerable MMO will indeed be receiving a new expansion this year, which should be welcome news following the game’s conspicuous absence in DBG’s recent announcements. Although we still don’t know anything about the expansion itself, the mere fact that it exists and will be releasing in November of this year should be enough to get any EQ2 player’s blood pumping.
