    We're happy with that. Since the last time a new server came up the other servers did NOT get a holiday xp session because of the new servers.

    This weekend, we will be commemorating Memorial Day with in-game bonuses. Take advantage of these bonuses on all servers:
    • +50% Experience
    • +50% Faction
    • +50% Rares
    By 50% rares do you mean 50% chance at chase loot dropping?

    And why didn't EQ1 receive any bonuses today? Especially one running through June 1.......and double xp instead of 50%.......
  7. Karrbon_175 New Member

    Starting today at 12 PM (noon) PDT until Monday, June 1 at 12 PM PDT.

    Live servers, you are going to see Limited time research reduction, and all servers will be getting double XP

    At this time, this will be our final week+ of bonuses. We hope you are all staying safe and healthy!

    I mean dear god can you throw us a bone? The servers were down for how long again?

    By rares, they mean what players usually refer to as named mobs, or namers.

    It's The Name, so that's what you call it. You know, that or, uh, His Nameness, or uh, Namer, or El Namerino if you're not into the whole brevity thing.

    That was the pandemic bonus - something EQ1 decided NOT to give.

    EQ2 always stacks the sale bonus with the 10% All Access bonus. They don't call a 10% sale a 20% sale like EQ1 does. The devs should reconsider that and have an actual 20% sale (30% total) during regular holidays and 30% (40% total) for Black Friday through New Years weekend.

    I'd go one step further and have that 20% sale for all accounts with that added 10% for All Access Gold accounts. It is almost like DBG doesn't want FTP players to buy anything in their store. One would think the opposite to be true. What a potential waste of revenue.

    Why are they so stingy? It isn't like people are knocking down doors to buy DBG store items.

    And why doesn't EQ1 have that different bonus?

    Is there a way to turn off the bonus experience on characters or accounts and if so, how do I go about that? If not, this totally ruins my plans to play all weekend. I'm 0% interested in a 50% bonus.

    EQ1 did give this bonus during the Anniversary, around the time the pandemic began in USA, instead of just EXP you got 50% Rares, 50% Lockout Timer Reduction and 15% marketplace membership (instead of 10%) discount on top of the EXP

    Does this discount apply to PACKS?

    Have you got a lsit of these unvaulted items and how long they will be on sale, please?
  19. Zinkeh Augur

    It doesn't appear to be least on Mangler. The Marketplace has the 20% discount but absolutely nothing new on it.

    I was excited to maybe see a new pet or pet illusion other than the same recycled garbage for sale every day. Nope. Same crap. New mounts? Nah. Same crap. etc, etc, etc. Hundreds of NPC models and we've got the same crap selection for pets/pet illusions going as far back as phinny. Kind of amazes me how TLP are the lifeblood of the game yet they really don't change or add anything new variety-wise.

    +50% Extra Rares - does this include the Wind Sprites in GD for the merc achievement, because I am sick to the back teeth of them!:(
