EverQuest Progression Servers Update Their Unlock Schedules


EverQuest's progression server team has changed the dates for when it will be unlocking content in 2017.

Let’s tackle the topic of Gates of Discord and Omens of War unlocks first. While we still feel strongly about working towards solutions that result in shorter periods on progression servers without a level cap increase, we also want to give players the opportunity to experience each era of content in a meaningful way.

On the Phinigel server, the release of an expansion that doesn't increase the level cap has been reduced to 8 weeks. That means after Gates of Discord goes live, it will be 8 weeks until Omens of War is added. But expansions that increase the level cap will remain at a 12 week interval.

On Ragefire and Lockjaw, the unlock schedule will be similar to previous progression servers. Omens of War and subsequent expansions will become eligible for voting 90 days after their previous expansions are completed.

On Ragefire, players will vote to unlock Planes of Power and Legacy of Ykesha on May 16, 2017, while Lockjaw players will vote for the aforementioned on Tuesday, May 30, 2017. If the votes to pass, the Lost Dungeons of Norrath will open automatically three months later.
