New Progression Servers - Selo and Mangler

Post by Mattmarr »

https://www.everquest.com/news/eq-selo- ... rsary-2019
Selo and Mangler Progression Servers - Coming March 16, 2019!

Next month, EverQuest will turn 20 years old. Together, we've shared 20 rich years of magical moments and created countless memories in Norrath.

Of course, we're excited to keep creating this magic with all of you. Beginning on EverQuest's 20th Anniversary, we will have the chance to start together in Norrath once again, on the new Progression Servers Selo and Mangler. These True Box Progression Servers will launch on Saturday, March 16, 2019 for EverQuest's 20th Anniversary!


What is a True Box Progression Server?

An EverQuest Progression Server is a way to experience EverQuest as it grew over time. It begins with access to only the original zones that were available at a specific point in the game’s history, then gradually adds expansions at varying intervals specific to the rules of the server. On a True Box server, each player will only be able to play on one EverQuest account from their computer. We want to encourage players to play with their friends on this server, and not just form groups of only their alts. If people are truly wanting to multi-box, they’ll have to do it the old-fashioned way - with a whole lot of computers!



Selo Progression Server



The Selo Server will be a "fast" or "casual" Progression Server. This means that gaining experience will be much easier, with experience nearly double that of Ragefire or Lockjaw when the server launches. Additionally, instances can be reused more often, rares are more likely to spawn, and faction is earned more quickly.

This server will start during the Shadows of Luclin era, and will unlock new expansions on the first Wednesday of each month, starting with The Planes of Power on May 1, 2019. Once the server catches up to the present era, it will become a Live server.

For more detailed information on Selo, you can read the server FAQ here.



Mangler Progression Server



The Mangler Progression Server will be a more hardcore server that is tuned to feel similar to the original EverQuest launch - perfect for those who are looking for a challenge. Experience rates will be slightly lower than those on other Progression Servers, and players will lose more experience on death.

Unlocks will initially happen every 12 weeks, but after Gates of Discord unlocks, expansions that do not include a level cap increase will remain current for just 8 weeks before the next unlock. If an expansion does include a level cap increase, it will last for a full 12 weeks before the next expansion is released.


Like other Progression and special ruleset servers, you must have an All Access Membership to play on either of these servers. In addition to letting you join the server, All Access Memberships include other great benefits, like 10% off most Marketplace purchases, and a claimable 500 DBC grant each month! For more details and to sign up for membership, you can visit the Membership page here.



Whether you're gearing up for a challenge, or just looking to enjoy the adventure again, we can't wait to see you on Saturday, March 16, 2019!

Updates to the two servers: An Update to Selos and Mangler - Coming March 16, 2019

From the first announcement of our 20th Anniversary plans, we said that this year was about the EverQuest community, a celebration we'd all be excited to be a part of. When we announced the upcoming Progression Servers, it made quite a splash, and players let us know that we hadn't quite hit the mark.

We heard your feedback, reviewed all of the different concerns and suggestions, and spent the past week revisiting in detail the experiences that we wanted to craft on these new servers. With that in mind, we have made some changes to the rulesets for the upcoming Selo and Mangler Progression Servers.

Selo Fast Progression Server

Selo is going to be a Fast Progression Server. This server is for anyone who wants to experience all of EverQuest's 20 years of content and fly through the expansions. Whether you want to relive the whole history in a short time, experience what you missed the first time around, or race your fellow adventurers through the eras, this is the server for you.

On this server, experience will be gained at nearly double the rate of Ragefire or Lockjaw. Instances can be reused more often, rares will be more likely to spawn, and faction can be earned more quickly. The server will open with EverQuest Classic, Ruins of Kunark, Scars of Velious, and Shadows of Luclin unlocked. This means the server opens with Iksar, Vah Shir, Beastlords, and of course four massive eras of content and raids to pursue.

New expansions will release on the first Wednesday of each month, starting with The Planes of Power on May 1, 2019. Selo is a Truebox server and, once the server catches up to the present era, will become a standard Live server.

For more detailed information on Selo, you can read the updated server FAQ here.

Mangler Standard Progression Server

Mangler is going to be a Standard Progression Server. This server is for anyone who wants to start off with that 1999 experience and progress through the years and expansions at a leisurely pace. Like without bard speed.

On this server, experience will match the standard rates on Ragefire and Lockjaw. Instances, rares, and faction will all be standard. The previously mentioned (new) experience and death penalties will not exist, but Focus Effects will remain unavailable until the Shadows of Luclin unlocks. Mangler will open with only classic EverQuest unlocked.

New expansions will unlock every 12 weeks. After Gates of Discord unlocks, expansions that do not include a level cap increase will remain current for only 8 weeks before the next unlock. Expansions that do have a level cap increase will be current for 12 weeks. Mangler is a Truebox server and, once the server catches up to the present era, will become a standard Live server.

For additional information on Mangler, you can read the updated server FAQ here.

Whatever piece of EverQuest you are looking forward to reliving, we hope these revised ruleset options will provide a new old place for you to call home. We look forward to seeing you in Norrath when the servers launch on March 16, 2019!

keep hoping for a non-truebox one of these days. I'm all for nostalgia except for the whole waiting around hours without a group thing.

Yeah, you either have to join with friends who will play together at set times or only raid with a guild. Either way, I've done all this shit. It took me 19 years to get where I am. I'm not about to do it all over again for fun.

That's not me, hell I still start up new characters. All of EQ is just minor variation on a theme, the new stuff is just killing bats that look different!
