About EverQuest® Seeds of Destruction™
To prevent a cataclysm and defeat the forces of chaos, players must journey through time portals to the greatest moments in EverQuest’s past. From the founding of Qeynos to the battle of Bloody Kithicor, players will be called upon to safeguard the history of Norrath. EverQuest Seeds of Destruction also introduces the brand-new mercenary feature, giving players the opportunity to hire non-player characters (NPCs) to aid them in their heroic endeavors. These mercenaries will be valuable player assets as they thwart the efforts of Discord’s Dark God. EverQuest Seeds of Destruction also includes a level cap increase to 85, new dynamic high-level raid content, new spells and new alternate advancement abilities.
