Celebrations, Pranks and Pink Elephants
Abundant in Everquest II Game Update #43

From the third annual Brew Day festival to the
traditional Bristlebane Day celebration, EverQuest II’s Game Update #43 will
present players with a month chock full of merriment.

In addition to scheduled live events, GU# 43 will
bring some new group looting options as well as a change to how players harvest
the ever elusive "shiny". Now the shiny will be subject to standard group
looting settings however, players will be able to loot them or leave them and,
if left, the shiny will remain intact until it is harvested and respawns again.

Brewday Festival:
Grab a stein and celebrate in recognition of Brew Day! Receive a Tumpy Tonic
bottle for your in-game house when you complete the quest given out by the
Avatar of Below. Keep an eye out for the magical appearance of portals, and
listen for the shouts of rowdy patrons who will lead you to The Bar of Brell
where adventures await those thirsty enough to enter. For those who can’t seem
to stop celebrating, you may just run into pink elephants and flying pigs as you
embark on quests.

Bristlebane Day:
Fans of mischief are invited to celebrate the King of Thieves and the Grand
Prankster himself, Fizzlethrope Bristlebane. Be on the lookout for the Comfort
Cube as you never know what laughs and pranks you may come across.

Game Update #43 is scheduled to launch on
Tuesday, March 4, 2008. The Brew Day Festival is expected to run March 14-21 and
Bristlebane Day is Tuesday, April 1, 2008.
