I love progression servers and I must not be alone in that. EverQuest has opened up their latest – Agnarr – and it’s a Planes of Power progression server, which means that it will unlock content slowly up to the Planes of Power expansion and then stop. Well, sort of stops. They’re also going to release Legacy of Ykesha and Lost Dungeons of Norrath, but neither of those expansions raise the level cap from 65.
Daybreak is also holding a contest where you can win some neat stuff, details are on this post here and if you’re interested in the Agnarr FAQ you can find that here too. Content unlocks every 12 weeks. It’s also a ‘true box’ server, which means you can only play one account from your PC – they’re trying to encourage grouping.
Will I play?
Well. You need to have an active subscription to play on the timelocked progression servers, and I’m not sure how much of my subscription I have left (I’ll have to look into it). I’m also not sure how much time I can actually dedicate to playing EQ – it’s a time intensive game where you’ll want to group up most of the time to make the most of your time.
That being said, I’ll probably look into it just because of nostalgia and see if I can get anywhere.
