Producer's Letter 2-27-2020




Greetings fair adventurers!

Time for an update on the immediate Norrathian horizon! We’ve been furiously planning the year, including expansions, holidays, and the future.

Can you believe EverQuest is entering its third decade? 21 years old this year! For this year’s anniversary in mid-March this year, we are releasing a new feature that has been a passion project for us that should enhance the lives of many around Norrath. We call it “Overseer.”

As an Overseer, you will be able to send out agents that you earn on Overseer Quests to gain rewards. This new system is designed to help players catch up to current content by giving access to rewards that are found in past content. Its goal is to help you build up your characters faster. Overseer is accessible starting at level 85 and with its launch we will grant all members a free level 85 heroic character. More details on Overseer will be coming very soon.

What about new progression servers? Not today! But we are planning to launch in late spring/early summer. We have some work to do on tech and game health overall as well as fully rounding out the rule sets before we can launch them. Part of this work includes tackling some server merges between now and late spring to position us well for new progression servers. We’ll give more detail when we have it, of course.

Forever spells and swords, friends,

Holly “Windstalker” Longdale

Reminds me of the followers in WoW that go out and do quests and can bring you some nice gear, been a mixed bag to do them on a daily basis.

Sounds nearly identical in concept to RIFT's "Minion" system so far. Looking forward to seeing EQ's take on this.

This sounds exciting!

Does this apply to only NEW created level 85 toons?
Possibly Awesome

The potential for that Overseer thing is very intriguing. Would be great if you could also send out agents to camp for rare mobs. I am not sure how they would handle that but if it means i can avoid 28+ placeholders to get Vexven Mucktail in Highpass Hold just for the hunter achievement that would be awesome. I would be completely fine with it just being text based and no loot and only 1 rare mob on a timer as long as the rare mob counts towards the hunter achievement. Okay i know they aren't going to do that. It's just wishful thinking.
