Take a Peek: Call of the Forsaken - Hate Rising

"Hate Rising" is an extension to the storylines introduced with the Call of the Forsaken expansion, and it is expected to go live on Wednesday, January 22.

So, then, what's coming with Hate Rising? Here is a rundown:

  • New content (same Tier) expands upon current Call of the Forsaken storylines.
  • Tier 1 Breastplates, Vambraces, and Boots are in (finally finish those armor sets!).
  • Three new group missions (one in each of: Ethernere, Neriak Fourth Gate, Dead Hills).
  • Four new raids (one in each of: Ethernere, Bixie Warfront, Neriak Fourth Gate, Dead Hills).
  • 15 new heroic adventures (six in Ethernere; six in Neriak Fourth Gate; three in Bixie Warfront).
  • 15 new nameds spread throughout the heroic adventures.
  • Five new collection sets.
  • Lower level vendorbought gear (using the same Marks of Valor currency):
  • All heroic adventures (new and old) now scale down in difficulty to Level 85.
  • Note: There are no new zones, AAs, or spells in Hate Rising.
    • New sections of the Bixie Warfront and Neriak Fourth Gate are now open (accessed in heroic adventures).

And here are few more visuals (below the jump):

Happy Friday!!

well I think it was a mistake for them to work in 85-95 missions.

they did not need to make 85-95 missions to have merc armor for lower toons.

one they should of said before coth came out the new way was only going forward 95+
peep complained because they thought they were lied too thought it was going to be a lot like ldons 20-100+

I am very much looking forward for the 3rd and 4th coth release I hope it has new zones.

I can truly say that my Hate is Rising for this expansion.

I like the content itself, and the progression, but we NEED MORE AA's! Many of us at the end game, were completely maxxed out on exp and AA's, and when this latest expansion came out, we maxxed out again, and went through all the content, in about 2 months. If there's one expansion per year, there should be enough to keep us busy for most of that year.

With the staggered release model, it's really hard to judge until it's all actually "out"... and until the first piece of the next actual expac drops (under this model) it's hard to say CoTF is done.


Most of the moves made in this content patch look to be more related to the Anniversary stuff (in that I think EQ post 15th anny is going to be a marked point in the timeline of era for how EQ has been played due to what it looks like they are building towards), all sorts of steps to make 85-90-95 the modern "newbie" path of grouping/levelling/gearing. Pretty much convinces me that "heroic characters" (instabuff to 85 for station cash) is coming sooner rather than later to EQ.
