Sony Online Entertainment Adds Live Update #21 To EverQuest II

March 23, 2006

Live Update #21 for EverQuest II has just been moved onto game servers. This latest enhancement to the hugely popular online role-playing game includes a special in-game reward for owners of the recently released expansion pack Kingdom of Sky, increased experience for high level players combat upgrades for select classes, and new merchant items in Norrath.

In appreciation for purchasing the Kingdom of Sky expansion pack, players will receive bonus veteran reward time of ninety (90) days on their Account Age, which is used to determine which set of unique and entertaining abilities the player will receive. There are also new items available from the merchants of Norrath for players under level 20 and over level 50. Experience points for quests in the 60-70 level range has been increased, and level 70 adventurers will now earn Achievement experience points at an improved rate.

For players that like taking down their enemies from a distance, the auto-attack feature for bows and projectile has been enhanced to match the damage done by melee auto-attacks. EverQuest II fans will also see improvements to the Achievement system, PvP and Combat as well.
