Overview

The Beginning

  • The Dragons of Norrath expansion was announced on January 11, 2005, and went live on February 15, 2005. The initial expansion announcement may be found here. The initial patch message may be found here.

What's Going On:

  • A series of events has transpired across the world of Norrath and the familiar faces of Firiona Vie and her nemesis Lanys T`Vyl return to find themselves at the forefront of these events. Unbeknownst to them, a dark influence has seeped into the world of Norrath causing new tensions to arise and conflicts to intensify as the dawn of a new age emerges. The Age of War is upon the people of Norrath and heroes return in this ultimate, unending battle between good and evil.
  • A gnome mining expedition has managed to dig their way through the northern mountains in Lavastorm. They came upon the dragon nesting grounds, a previously unexplored part of northeastern Antonica which is full of Nest dragons, dragonkin and goblins; and thriving with wildlife.

What's New:

  • The Guild Hall is your guild's own instanced zone, including guild bank, a portal to many druid/wizard destinations, and buff stoppage.
  • The Guild Lobby (now available to everyone) is a place for guilds to recruit and for players to summon their corpses.
  • New Models: Dragons, Stone Sentinels, Kirins, Drakes, Spiders, Pumas, Dervishes.
  • New AAs retrieved through Dragons of Norrath progression.

Progression:

  • In order to progress through this expansion, you would be advised to pick a faction and stick with it. You have two to choose from: The good-aligned Norrath's Keepers or the evil-aligned Dark Reign. Neither faction has any effect on any other zones in EverQuest.
  • Both factions have camps set up in the network of caves in Lavastorm's north. In addition to these two camps, there is a group of Wayfarers to the south-southeast of the caves who also offer tasks.
  • Completing tasks (both groups and raids) yields X amount of Radiant Crystals or Ebon Crystals, which can be used to purchase items and augmentations from adventure merchants Tatsujiro the Serene (for the Norrath's Keepers) and Xeib Darkskies (for the Dark Reign).
  • Faction is gained by completing tasks and turning in the token you receive after each task. These tokens are LORE, so you need to make the turn-in after each task completed for maximum faction gains.

Zones:

  • A list of Dragons of Norrath zones may be found here.
