    Hello my Norrathian Friends!

    Since SOE Live, the team has been cranking away at the Expansion, Call of the Forsaken. It gives me extreme pleasure to work on EverQuest right now with such a creative team, delivering to you, the 20th Expansion this Fall.

    Beta for Call of the Forsaken started soon after SOE Live and we are now extending Beta through October 7th. That also means we are moving the launch of the expansion a couple weeks as well to October 8, 2013. If you haven’t jumped into the Beta yet, there is still time to adventure through some of our new zones like Bixie Warfront and Neriak Fourth Gate before they go live! We are flagging accounts daily and we welcome everyone to check out the expansion and send us feedback while we finish with polish and tuning. More information on Beta Sign Ups

    If you have been following the expansion details, then you will know that one of the biggest features for Call of the Forsaken is the customization with Mercenaries with their own AAs and power-added Armor. To give everyone a taste of what to experience with the new Mercenary Armor, we are giving everyone that Pre-Orders Call of the Forsaken before October 7, an exclusive piece of Mercenary Armor. We hope you will check out the expansion on Beta and take advantage of the Pre-Order exclusive item! More information on Pre-Orders and In-Game Rewards

    Our Big Bags bring all the boys to the yard! That’s right, last Friday we started a Super Sonic Sack Sales Spectacular with Big Bags back in the Marketplace. They will be available for a couple weeks so be sure to get yours before they are gone.

    I want to thank all of you checking in and reading my letter. The EverQuest team is excited with much anticipation to bring you the 20th expansion in just two weeks from today. If that isn’t rewarding enough for us, we are already discussing ways we can continue the storylines in additional game updates that tie into the expansion throughout the year.

    See you in game soon!

    Has the development cycle truly devolved to such a short time frame? Content you are expecting to launch in just a couple months is still in the discussion phase today? I don't have the warm fuzzies about paying $40 for discussions and hope.

    What is the minimum average group level that can request missions in CoF?
    At what level do THE MAJORITY of merc AA's become available?
    Will Merc equipment be available at all levels, if not at what level does it become available?

    Beta NDA is usually lifted 1 week before the release date. So just wait 1 more week, and then it will all be revealed.

    Second release will be in January 2014 and final release in July 2014. So only ten months to get the whole expansion.

    Question from a SOE live participant are we still getting a copy of the new expansion? I remember someone confirming it to me but I still have my account showing no signs of it flagged.

    SOE Live - All Access attendees will be given the Expansion on Launch Day.
