EverQuest Launches the Ring of Scale Expansion

Another moment to note, today Daybreak launched the 24th EverQuest expansion, Ring of Scale.

Does it scale?

The Ring of Scale expansion sends players back to Kunark… again… and into new versions of some familiar zones to assist the Combine in their conflict with the Sarnak, dragons, and whoever is living in Veeshan’s Peak these days.

The expansion lists out the following items:

  • Level Cap Raised to 110 – 5 more levels
  • 6 New Zones
    • The Overthere (RoS version) – Hub zone, connects you to other expansion zones
    • Charasis (RoS version)
    • Gorowyn
    • Sathir’s Tomb
    • Skyfire Mountains (RoS version)
    • Veeshan’s Peak (RoS version)
  • New Raids, Quests, and Missions
  • New Spells, Combat Abilities, and Alternate Advancement traits
  • New Collections

Further details are available at Fanra’s EverQuest Wiki., the Allakhazam Wiki, as well as in today’s update notes in the EQ forums.

As usual, the expansion is available at three different price points, the two more expensive coming with their own piles of fluff.

With the base package you get the expansion content, plus access to all previous expansion content should you be behind on that.

The Collectors Edition adds in the following:

  • Gorowyn Express Beacon – teleport item
  • Contract of the Skorpikis – redeemable for a special NPC mercenary
  • Claimable once per account:
    • Ring of Scale Painting – House item
    • Experience Potion* – 25% exp boost for 8 hours
    • Howling Stones Bag* – 40 slot bag
    • Devourer Familiar* – pet
    • Fierce Cockatrice Mount – mount with stat buffs
    • Guise of the Iron-Toothed Earthdigger* – illusion

And for the full $140 Premium edition you can add the following to the above:

  • Shared Experience Potion* – 25% exp boost for your group for 8 hours
  • Bridle of the Balefire Wyvern – mount with an even bigger stats buff
  • Rhino-Riding Herald Telcha Familiar* – pet

Items marked with an asterisk are available to be redeemed on progression servers.

And, of course, if you’re a Daybreak All Access subscriber you get to take 10% off the prices listed.  Even with that discount there doesn’t seem to be enough fluff to begin to tempt me at those rates.

While I won’t be jumping back into old Norrath, I did stop and watch the trailer for the expansion.  Things still look very EverQuest-y in Norrath, if you know what I mean.

Next year, expansion 25.
