EVERQUEST® ONLINE ADVENTURES™ HEATS UP FOR SUMMER

WITH MULTIPLE NEW GAMEPLAY FEATURES

The Adventure Continues With Introduction of The Storyteller, Improvements to Zaoran Plateau and Plane of Disease and the Launch of the EQOA Hall of Fame

WHAT: Share Your Story and Reap Rewards!

Do you have an awesome adventuring story to tell? If so, it might be worthwhile to pay a visit to the EQOA Storyteller, an old adventurer who recounts the trials and tribulations of his youth. No longer able to crawl the dungeons of Norrath himself, the Storyteller is rumored to be using his hoard of treasures to lure explorers from far away lands to share their own stories in exchange for his riches. Players level 20 and up can complete this new quest content, earn rewards and share their own tales of battle and expedition. In return for their chronicles, the Storyteller offers faction points which can be saved to spend on treasure.

Improvements Galore!

• Zaoran Plateau now receives tank armor class stats, durability upgrades and the armor insignia quest, rebalancing of all raids and more tradable armor drops for raids on the first island.

• Plane of Disease (PoD) enhancements include a faster re-spawn of common named NPCs and a rare chance at the new PoD ability quest pieces.

• Plane of Sky now offers longer spawns for the entry quest, dropping four items instead of one.

• Balance changes include the Zaoran Plateau tank abilities, caster and sorcerer class mastery abilities, master class changes for mystics, mercenaries, transmuters, bravos, arcane werehunters, and exorcists.

Check out all latest enhancements!
