EVERQUEST® II GAME UPDATE #38: NEW APPEARANCE OPTIONS, A GRAND PRANKSTER GOD AND MORE PERSISTENT GAMEPLAY

WHAT: Customize your Appearance in new ways!

Upon reaching level 20, you'll be able to access new appearance item slots on the inventory window! Have favorite pieces that are an important part of your style? You can now keep wearing them for looks while continuing to upgrade your primary gear!

The Gods must be crazy…Bristlebane Returns!

Calling all practical jokers, jesters and masters of mischief, the godly Grand Prankster, Fizzlethorpe Bristlebane has returned to Norrath! What sort of mischievous plans does the Royal Trickster have in store for his faithful followers? Those interested in devoting themselves to this sultan of silly should speak with Tobel Patadash, the self-declared Prophet of Bristlebane at the docks of The Enchanted Lands.

Get some rest in Unrest!

Like Estate of Unrest, but just don't have the time? Well now you can get both rest and Unrest, as the Estate of Unrest is now persistent! Your raid force can now clear part of the instance, leave, and then come back later to pick up where you left off. There is no longer a“failure” timer, but you will be locked to an instance for 5 days once you kill any mob. You can reset your timer after 5 days and enter a different instance, or you can choose to continue in the same instance for up to 9 days total.

Also in GU 38:

• Dual Wield Changes: To allow for a better selection of weapons for all classes, the Dual Wield designation on weaponry has been removed, and they’ve become full One-Handed weapons, giving more choice to everyone. One-Handed weapons can now be dual wielded by classes who have that ability.

• Gameplay: Glory awaits those who wish to explore the presence of mysterious Iksar within our waters. What lies beyond the horizon? Join up with Admiral Marc Grenich in Qeynos Harbor and recruiter Livia Montelius in Freeport East to see!

Information on additional enhancements included in GU 38 can be found here.

EverQuest II is rated T (for Teen) by the ESRB.
