Is Boxing allowed?

Boxing is allowed, however you can only run 1 Everquest client per computer until Prophecy of Ro unlocks where you can run 3 clients per computer.

When The Buried Sea unlocks True Box is disabled.

Marketplace Items

Daybreak will have a limited store that will start with lower-tier consumables (potions & buffs), appearances, and bags and some mounts will unlock with Luclin. But marketplace offerings will not be too powerful for each expansion's era.


Vaniki will have all the normal Agent of Change instancing for each raid target.

Max raid size is 72 players per instance. 6 players minimum in order to request those instances.

Raid lockouts will be 2.5 days for requesting a raid instance and each boss killed will give a 6.5 day lockout. For example, Plane of Sky will give a 6.5 day lockout for each island cleared so if you kill a NPC from another island accidentally…6.5 days.
