Convorteum Secrecy Lifted (Maybe)

SOE has been silent on when to expect the new Underfoot zone, Convorteum. However, according to massiveonlinegamer.com, they have released some info.

EQ Players still says nothing. What is the truth? Who knows, but SOE sure doesn't make it easy for their players to find out anything.

Here is what massiveonlinegamer.com claims SOE has said:
The new exclusive Convorteum zone add-on for EverQuest Underfoot is scheduled to release on March 10th, 2010. Experience the latest and greatest expansion content with the never before released zone and a new bonus item. Underfoot just got bigger and better.

In an effort to resist the wrath of Brell, a new fortress has been constructed. Fueled by the resentment of his creator, The First Creation is plotting his vengeance. Discover the dangers of Convorteum!

In addition, massiveonlinegamer.com states:
That's not all, of course. The new add-on boasts six new raids, multiple new quests, and one new mission for players to take advantage of.

New Underfoot Zone Due in April

A new zone for Underfoot is due some time in April. The zone, called Convorteum, will apparently be the highest end zone in Underfoot.

More Underfoot stuff is also due in April, exactly what is still a secret.

UI changes coming in March update

I just wanted to give some warning. The March patch will have some changes to the inventory window (new stats pane) and mercenary UIs (alt currency cost displays). These may or may not break your custom UI. The changes are now on test, so check them out before patch day. - Steven S. Klug, EverQuest Lead Programmer

Frostfell Goblin Illusion Quest Broken

The Frostfell quest to get the Mask of the Grumpy Goblin, a mask with Effect: Illusion Frost Goblin, is not available this year. Maynar Furrwik gives the task.
Unfortunately, Maynar was removed due to technical difficulties so the secondary quest is not active this time. - Zatozia, EQ Community Relations Manager

Campfires and Guild Banners Not Working In Underfoot

In the most cases, it looks like the campsite/banner teleport disables were unintentional. We will look into it, but I have no ETA for you, or even if it will make it into the patch on the 15th.

There may also be a reason for it in some zones, so this is also not a promise that it will be relaxed in all zones, or really any zone. Just that we will look into it.

Frostfell Live December 9th through January 8th

From EQ Players News:
Frostfell Adventures

As the air starts to chill and the frost begins to cover the ground, the season of Frostfell begins. No holiday season is perfect though and a couple of your fellow Norrathians need your help to make Frostfell a merry holiday for all! Visit your favorite major city and the Plane of Knowledge to find out how you can help.

The season of Frostfell will embrace Norrath from December 9th through January 8th. Various events will be available at different intervals throughout the season. So make sure you join in the fun before Frostfell is over for another year.


Although there are no new events for 2009, most of the past quests can be done at this time.

Patch Scheduled December 15, 2009

From the main Official EQ Forums page:
All EverQuest Live Servers (except Al'Kabor) will be coming down on December 15th at 1:00 am PST (PST is -8 GMT: 2:00am MST, 3:00am CST, 4:00am EST, 9:00am GMT, 10:00am CET) for the main launch of the Underfoot expansion and a Game Update. The servers are estimated to be unavailable for about 7 hours. Keep an eye on the EQ Players website and the forums for status updates and for news if additional downtime is needed!

Extended Patch and Underfoot Preview Info

The servers will be coming down again at 8:30am PST [December 10, 2009] to address the Underfoot access issues. I guess the network maintenance finished early, so they brought the servers back up.

There will be no rollbacks for those of you who got your bonus Underfoot preview for two days. However, if you camp out in an Underfoot zone, you will be moved to Plane of Knowledge after you log back in. Those that pre-ordered, but did not qualify for early access will of course be able to return to Underfoot this Tuesday morning.

Patch Scheduled December 10, 2009

Beginning at 1:00 AM PST on Thursday, December 10, 2009, all SOE game servers will be offline for hardware maintenance. This includes all of our MMOs as well as TCGs. We expect this downtime to last around 5 hours.

In addition, All EQ Live servers will be undergoing an additional downtime until 11am for a Game Update to correct issues with the Early Access for Underfoot.

We apologize for this interruption and will resume all affected services as soon as the maintenance is completed.
