Veil of Alaris – LAUNCH DAY!

Tired of waiting for the Servers to Launch? A number of sites have taken a look at EverQuest Veil of Alaris. Read for yourselves what they have to say!

On launch day the EverQuest Team always comes in early, to insure the smoothest and cleanest launch possible. We know many of you will be anxiously awaiting the servers coming back up, so why not spend some of that time with us?

We’ll be starting discussions and sharing some inside views beginning at 6:00 am Pacific. Find out what it’s like to be a part of the EverQuest Team on launch day on the Official EverQuest Forums as well as our Facebook page and Twitter account.

You’re also invited to our first ever EverQuest Twitter Chat at 7:00 am Pacific, where you can ask Community Manager Eric “Piestro” Cleaver, Lead Designer Adam “Ngreth” Bell, and other members of the Development Team any questions you have about EverQuest and Veil of Alaris.

We’re excited as can be about the launch of EverQuest Veil of Alaris and can’t wait to talk to you on launch day!

Alaran Language

In your skill listing, you’ll find a new language: Alaran. This starts at 0 and caps out at 100 (5 and 105 if you did one of the pre-launch tasks resulting in “An Ancient Text”).

Your Alaran language skill will advance as you complete tasks.

Most tasks, missions, and raids require a minimum language skill level in order to request them. (Note: You’ll still have to complete certain tasks in order, if they are a part of a series.)

In SOE’s Words

In Argath and Arelis (AKA Valley of Lunanyn), each task gives a different book, each with its own bit of story. Each zone after that will give the same book for every task. Clicking any of these books will set your language skill to the proper value based on the tasks you have completed. Here are the language skill calculations.

Having completed the prelaunch mission (Baga’s Stand) will add 5 points to the language value beyond the numbers below.

The tasks in Argath or Arelis will get your Alaran to 70 (75 if you have completed the prelaunch task). You can get the full value from those two zones by doing just about half of the content, or if you focus on either zone you can get the full 70 points by completing that one zone. Missions give more points than tasks, and more complex tasks give more points than the simple “kill” tasks.

Note: You get points for completing a task once. Repeating those tasks will not improve your language skill.

The tiers after that will grant 5, 10 and 15 language points respectively, giving a total of 100 (105 if you have done the Baga’s Stand task).

Tier 2

  • Doing all of Sarith = 5 points
  • Doing half of them = 3 points
  • Doing 1 of them = 1 point

Tier 3

  • Doing all of Rubak = 3
  • Doing half of them = 2 points
  • Doing 1 of them = 1 point
  • Doing all of Beast Domain = 3
  • Doing half of them = 2 points
  • Doing 1 of them = 1 point
  • Doing all of Resplendent Temple = 4
  • Doing half of them = 2 points
  • Doing 1 of them = 1 point

Tier 4

  • Doing all of City of Bronze = 3
  • Doing half of them = 2 points
  • Doing 1 of them = 1 point
  • Doing all of Pillars of Alra = 4
  • Doing half of them = 2 points
  • Doing 1 of them = 1 point
  • Doing all of Windsong = 4
  • Doing half of them = 2 points
  • Doing 1 of them = 1 point
  • Doing all of Sepulcher = 4
  • Doing half of them = 2 points
  • Doing 1 of them = 1 point

In addition to progression, your Alaran language skill level also factors in to being able to buy certain spells, class AAs, and armor templates for upper tiers.

On A Side Note:

ARE THE SERVERS UP?!?!?!
