    Hello Everyone,

    After discussing with the team, we wanted to announce a change to the upcoming Progression Servers and also make something a little clearer. Due to the feedback we've received, we're going to be removing the PoP locking from both servers, allowing them to unlock expansions at the established rate (the same cadence as Mangler). The second point is, the dedicated GM status of these two servers is an experiment. We hope that it will prove to be viable, but it does have a time limit associated with it. We are targeting at least 6 months, post server launch, after which we will review the results and move forward from there.


    Hail, Norrathians! It is almost time to begin a fantastic new adventure. The Time-Locked Progression servers Aradune and Rizlona are launching on May 27! It's time to begin new adventures and forge new alliances.

    An EverQuest Progression Server is a way to experience EverQuest as it grew over time, starting during the earlier eras of the game. The Aradune Truebox Dedicated Progression and Rizlona Boxed Dedicated Progression servers begin with access to the original zones that were available at launch and will gradually add expansions every 3 months until Planes of Power/Lost Dungeons of Norrath at which point it will be locked.

    Need to know what to expect on Aradune and Rizlona?

    Dedicated GM - Rizlona and Aradune are GM dedicated servers, this means they will be more visible on your server and petition queues will go direct to them. It is possible that there will be instances where other GMs may assist when available but most will go to your specific GMs. Stay tuned in the coming weeks for more about your server's GMs!

    If you can play infinite toons I'd be impressed but more or less. Yes.

    @dreamweaver is this a PoP/LDoN locked server?
  10. Kaelz New Member

    then what?
  11. dreamweaver Community Manager

    It is locked, that is what the "Until" is meant to convey but I will make it more specific.
  12. Finchy Augur

    so 3 PoP locked servers? lol...cmon now. can you cancel one of these and move Mangler to that server cluster so we can stop having crashes every 3-4 days and losing 100s of hours of loot lockouts?
  13. Raneorn New Member

    3 months in classic has shown to be a drag after ~4 weeks and no progression after PoP means the server in the end will die. Terrible way to remember Aradune.

    DUH... sorry, reading is fundamental

    Big F for all the players who were hoping for a non truebox progression server with AoCs to play through all the expansions.

    Why another Agnarr? A lot of us were even hoping you would start the servers out around Kunark or Velious to avoid the classic crunch, much less leave them expansion locked to die out like Agnarr has.

    PoP locked on both?

    Either way, it's nice to see something unique. Kudos. These will be the best newbie experiences in a long time.

    congrats, you guys are killing your game even more than you already have. I had no idea it was even possible but you never fail to exceed my expectations.
  19. HoodenShuklak Augur

    I definitely agree that the classic is overdone if you've been around for a while... but if the boxing server goes past POP then it's the first boxing+AOC server ever... so it should be a good option down the road when EQ really needs boxing to stay afloat.

    The progression lock has these as dead within a year, unless y'all have some data showing Agnarr being big money. Good rule sets otherwise.
