Classic MMO gamers have been able to preorder EverQuest and EverQuest II’s big expansions for a while now, but there’s one key thing they didn’t know: when exactly launch day was coming.

Now they do. According to tweets sent out this afternoon by Daybreak, EverQuest’s Torment of Velious expansion releases December 18th, while EverQuest II’s Blood of Luclin will beat it out the door to launch on December 17th.

As we’ve previously covered, both of these expansions are a bit of a lore throwback for the franchise. In Blood of Luclin, players are going to the moon. Seriously. The level cap gets a bump to 120, with new solo, heroic, and raid content, plus the new Overseer feature, which is basically like minion systems in other popular MMOs. In Torment of Velious, on the other hand, players are headed to the frozen north, with a level cap bump of its own, new alternate advancement perks, and six zones to traverse.

I dont think new aa perks have been promised for EQ1. AFAIK all the aas are just new levels of the old aas.

I…, I…, I just can’t. The EQ Next damage is extensive. And I can’t go back for an expansion now. At every turn, I’ll be thinking “what if?”.

That’s why I went with Project 1999, it’s legal and not being spoiled by my disappointment in Daybreak.

I had been thinking to start EQ2 again with my sis since she tends to like simpler tab targeting theme park mmos and she had already tried and liked that a couple years ago. I think she will need a sub for the “pet class” of the game if I recall well

If you mean the Beastlord, I think you can just buy it a la carte. The Conjuror and Necromancer classes come with the base game.

I loved my Beastlord in the original EQ but I switched to a Conjuror in EQ2 and did enjoy that a lot when I was playing. (At the time, the Beastlord didn’t exist in EQ2 and when it finally came out I wasn’t interested in starting a new character.)

yes I am more into tanks and healers personally but she usually likes petclasses

there’s also a kinda-pet class healer with a bow they added after beastlord, also as a paid addition. iirc it’s called channeler

Ah, I was still playing a bit when the Channeler was released, but I don’t think I ever knew that it was also a pet class.
