EQII Game Update #35 Goes Live


Game Update #35 has been released for EverQuest II this week, and with it comes a number of huge additions. First and foremost, the all-new Arasai character race, an evil offshoot of the recently added Fae race from the Echoes of Faydwer expansion, has been introduced (along with additional character creation slots), and with the new race comes the new starting city of Neriak and a new overland zone with quests for players level 1-20 called Darklight Wood. Creating an Arasai character requires having the Echoes of Faydwer expansion installed, but the new city and zone are available to all players.

Accompanying the race and starting areas come a new and improved LFG (Looking For Group) system, a house moving service to make changing homes less of a hassle, new PvP rules and many other fixes. Check the EQII game update page for the complete list of enhancements.
