There’s less than a month remaining before the launch of EverQuest II’s next expansion, Chaos Descending, and the folks at Daybreak Games have pulled back the curtain a bit to give players a preview of what they can expect when they delve into the elemental planes on November 13th. The first preview looks at Myrist, the Great Library. Housed at the center of the Plane of Knowledge, Myrist is the library to end all libraries, as it contains the sum of all knowledge in the known universe. The library and the nearby city of New Tanaan were cut off from the rest of the planes over 200 years ago, but in Chaos Descending, its doors will be flung open once more.
And if a cozy nook with a good book isn’t your cup of tea, perhaps you’ll be more interested in a little trip to Doomfire, the Burning Lands on the Plane of Fire, where the sky is ash and embers, and you’re never more than one wrong step away from being hideously immolated. Ruled over by the Tyrant of Fire Fennin Ro, the Plane of Fire is home to all sorts of infernal beings, from elementals and imps to efreeti and phoenixes. Players will have to brave these treacherous lands in Chaos Descending
if they hope to unravel the mystery of what has thrown the planes into disarray. Just remember to wear plenty of sunscreen. You can check out the full previews of both Myrist and Doomfire over at the game’s official site.
