TIME LOCKED SERVERS
Destiny of Velious Kaladim Launch
Destiny of Velious has come to Kaladim for EverQuest II! Prepare to be transported to the legendary Great Wastes of Velious, where towering dungeons, dangerous beasts and epic storylines provide the ultimate MMO experience. Destiny of Velious will launch adventurers into the sky - Kaladim can use flying Mounts!
Following the events of Sentinel's Fate, the twin Swords of Destiny, Soulfire and the Qeynos Claymore, have been drained of their powers, setting the stage for the destruction of the EverQuest universe. The prophecy known as Age's End begins to unfold in the legendary continent of Velious, and it's here that the war for Norrath will arise. If there is to be any chance of saving Norrath, the Swords of Destiny must be restored.
Destiny of Velious – New Heroic Character
Start your adventures in Destiny of Velious with a free limited 85 heroic character! With the launch of Destiny of Velious, each account will earn a single Level 85 character boost upon logging into the Kaladim server.
This boost is granted once per account and grants gear appropriate for starting adventuring in Destiny of Velious overland content, and may be placed in the shared bank.
