    EverQuest II: Myths and Monoliths is going live!

    Emerging from the fog of time and memory comes the fabled dungeons of Veeshan's Peak and Kurn's Tower, now with heightened challenges and new glorious rewards!

    Return to the dragon stronghold of Veeshan's Peak, to experience the pivotal confrontation against the Ring of Scale. You and your raid force will test your skills and determination against such fearsome foes as Druushk, Hoshkar, Xygoz, Silverwing, Phara Dar, and even the mighty Trakanon!

    Relive that infamous moment when Kurn's Tower, the dreaded iksar monument of torment, was revealed to have been a Void anchor upon Norrath! Face invigorated foes and new challenges as you advance upwards through the monolith of pain and oblivion.
