Brewday is here, and Norrathians everywhere are raising a stein to honor Brell! If the parties in the cities just aren’t enough, maybe you could host a Brewday shindig of your own? This Marketplace update has everything you need to celebrate in style:
Lion’s Head Pub:
True Brewday devotees keep the party going all year long, and this beautiful set by Neko Zero has everything you need to run your own pub! Pick up the Lion’s Head Cabinet, Pub Stool, Counter, and Tap separately or in a bundle to create a custom setup for your home or guildhall.
Brew Barrel Baby Bed:
Jerry Dechant’s cute crib is perfect for a new addition to the family (or a Dwarf that’s had one too many.)
Wood Inlaid Living Room Tables:
Festive and functional, this trio of tables by Jerry Dechant double as game boards for checkers or backgammon.
Mahogany Coach Serving Cart:
Serve your Brewday beers in style with this elegant cart by Jerry Dechant.
Brasse’s Golden Brandy:
We’re not quite sure how IceSy Designs managed to get ahold of Brasse’s best brandy, but this Dwarven-inspired set is a must have for any true Brewday devotee!
You can preview and purchase all of these items using the in-game Marketplace. Brewday runs from March 6th through the 17th, so be sure to log in today! Continue reading

It’s Brewday once again in Norrath, and there’s nothing like the Dwarven celebration of Brell and beer to bring your spirits up! Adventurers across Norrath are invited to sample exotic brews, complete festive quests, and visit the mysterious Bar of Brell.
New for 2014:
Beer Tokens: Better than real money (because beer!), this special currency is a new quest reward option and can be used to purchase event-exclusive items.
Brewday Recipes: Take a break from drinking to craft some brand new Brewday items! Balin Copperfoot in the Bar of Brell has copies of “Brewday Accouterments to Craft V,” as well as previous editions.
New Quests: There’s some strange noises coming from below the Bar of Brell, and it’s not the band, the brawlers, or the boasting patrons. Speak with the bartender to learn more!
Brewday Bounty: Visit merchant Balin Copperfoot in the Bar of Brell for seven new Brewday items.
Bar of Brell: The Duke of Below has created a magical bar for the denizens of Norrath, so stop in for a pint or three! You’ll find the entrances in Antonica, The Commonlands, Greater Faydark, Haven, Timorous Deep, and Frostfang Sea.
Butcherblock Beer Garden: Otengrad Brauer has set up a beach beer garden just East of the Butchblock Docks, but the festivities have drawn swarms of thirsty goblins! Hop on a magic Brewday carpet to clear ‘em out and earn some great prizes.
Brewday Achievements: Prove yourself to be a true Brewday fan and earn these holiday achievements: “The Great Brewday Pub Crawl,” “Festive Furniture,” “Pub N’ Suds,” “Drunk Level: Dwarf,” and “Can’t Hold Their Liquor.”
Bountful Brewday Gardens: You’ll need these special gathering nodes to craft Brewday items! The Gardens are only visible with your Ale Goggles and can be found near the entrances to the Bar of Brell.
Brews Across Norrath collectibles: Find magical purple collectibles near bars and Brewday activities to earn the festive Kaladim Brew cloak!
Brewday runs from March 6th through March 14, 2014. For a full guide to the festivities, check out the official EverQuest II wikia. [http://eq2.wikia.com/wiki/Brew_Day] Cheers! Continue reading
It’s Wikia Wednesday, Norrathians! Where we blog about things…For reasons! So I’ll get this started.
Luperza and Firiona Vie model at the 2014 EverQuest Next Landmark Community Celebration Event
This last week and a half has been quite an emotional roller coaster for me. My new title as EverQuest 2 Community Manager, drops me into Norrath, a place I have so many memories of and has me “leaving” Auraxis. “Leaving” because I am not truly leaving. I am just no longer the Community Manager. I’ll still be playing PlanetSide 2 to get my FPS fix and I’ll be involved in lots of things like Friday Night Ops and Community Clash. I never realized how hard it would be to find the words to say goodbye and hello to a community. If you want to check out my hello and goodbye posts, they’ll go over everything a bit more in depth.
So…Here I am! The New Community Manager of EverQuest 2. What does that mean? For me, it means, I am here to help grow and direct our player base into a conglomeration of what EverQuest 2 is all about! This includes EVERYONE – solo-ers, multi-boxers, dungeon groups, questers, crafters, interior decorators, trades brokers, raiders, PvPers and so on and so forth! I often see MMO communities get split up into tiny groups, but what a lot of people don’t realize is that together…Together we are WAY more powerful. United, we make the game. Honestly, we do. Without us, the players, these games wouldn’t exist.
What I want to see is all of us working together and if not agreeing, at least understanding one another. Let’s work as one to build a better community where new people feel welcome and there’s always something fun to do!
First of all, I want to go over what I generally do:
- Reports – I scour the internet to aggregate analytic data
- Upon Development’s Request
- Forum Moderation and Duties
- Social Media Engagment
- TwitchTV Livestreams – NEW!!
- News and Announcements
- SOE Live, etc
Beyond that, I want to do so much more! With a game like EverQuest 2, we have potential to create some really amazing stories together for all kinds of aspects of the game.
This is where I want your help! I usually end every blog with a question, but today, I have many questions! I’ll be setting up a new livestream series, similar to Friday Night Ops if you’ve ever checked that out.
- What kind of content would you like to see?
- What day would be best for you to view the livestream/partake in it – Keep in mind it must be between Monday and Friday?
- How often would you like to see these streams? Weekly, biweekly, monthly?
- And last, but not least, what should we name the livestream!?
Here are some general ideas I have for the livestream segments:
- Dev Spotlights
- Content Spotlights
- Throw Back Thursdays – Checking out old content
- Guild Spotlights – Including all types: PvP, PvE, crafting, etc
- Event Spotlights
- Fansite Spotlights
- Individual Player Spotlights
- Discussion Panels
- Guild Recruitment Videos
- General Video Submission
- Screenshot Submissions
- Fanart Submission
- Guide Program
Let me know what you think of my ideas and leave yours in the comments section below!
- Hi! I’m your new Community Manager
- Weekly Wikia Question(s)
- If we did an EverQuest 2 livestream: what content would you like to see, what day would you want to watch it, how often should we stream, and what should we name it?
