In EverQuest II, we are currently celebrating Frostfell; and for twelve days of Frostfell, as part of the celebration we're picking one top selling item per day and putting it on sale at a huge discount for that one day only.  The items will change over around 10-11am (pacific time) each morning from now until the 24th of December.  Be sure to check in each day to see what's on sale.

On this eleventh day of Frostfell, the Ogre Heritage Armor is on sale today for only 750 SC. You don't have to be an ogre to look good in this set -- but you CAN be an ogre if you want, since the cloak includes an activatable ogre illusion!  (Random trivia - despite my halfling signature on the forums, I actually play more ogre characters than halflings on my real play accounts. Ogres are sexah! SMILEY)

Go to the "sale" tab in the marketplace to find it; only till tomorrow morning, so don't miss it!  And check back tomorrow for the very last sale item of the 12 days.  It's a pretty one!

An additional present for you this holiday season is a 4-day double-XP New Year weekend.  See SmokeJumper's post for the details and if you're logged in between Dec 30 and Jan 2nd, enjoy the extra XP!

You do not need a developer to answer that question, I can do it for you.

There will not be a free character transfer token noted in these sale threads.  Something like that will come as a specific announcement on it's own.  As well, historically, they were not provided free for server merges, the last time I remembered any free transfers was years ago to decrease population, not to mollify players that had low activity servers merged.

I'd settle for being able to get a Transfer Token on in the Marketplace period...

Not..if you buy $25 more station cash and give us the card numbers we'll do it..

I don't like the fact that their "problem" costs me more for a transfer..

I am just curious. Are there really a lot of people buying these "fluff" items?

I mean, it's supposed to be a celebration of a holiday, shouldn't it target a majority of the players, not a minority?

Well, the x3 SC was nice, but then again, it wasn't an EQ2 thing, it was a SOE thing, so doesn't really fit into this discussion...

I was thinking the same thing, the overall SOE team actually did something nice. Just the EQ2 developers that are paid off our sub's seem to think they are only paid from SC.

Honestly if they were going to do it, it would most likely only be on the very last day. Even then, to fit in with the theme, it wouldnt only be a sale, maybe half off, but not completely free. As a matter of note, unlimited free transfers has only happened once, at the first server merge about 5 years ago or so. The last offering was limited to 6 characters per account, so it wasnt exactly the same. And again, I foresee sales on character slots maybe, but transfer tokens are highly doubtful, if only because of the account requirements to use them. It would be pointless to make them free for a day and still have a large part of the population who cant even use them. Better to just reroll a character on another server, takes about 8 hours to get to level 90, another 2 days to max AAs, and the whole thing can be done in less than a week even for a casual player. Happy Holidays!

"What is hyperbole Alex"

The casual player of course being the one with 5 other accounts to box or friends on call for the duration, Recruit a Friend Mounts, all vet potions and bonus items.

Sorry but casual players rarely even play the focused 8 hours of grinding you claim to hit 90 much less the rest of this. I enjoyed the chuckle though so keep it coming. Of course if you want to post an exact how to manual for precisely how you leveled a toon from 1 - 90 in 8 hours on your own as a casual I am sure we would love to see it complete with documentation and I will bow to your uberness.

hehe, good stuff.

Happy holidays all SMILEY

**Looks around the cities in game.** Um... looks like they have something out there for the majority of players. Something they've been adding things to for a few years now.

Santa Glug has your free gifts like always.

The stuff on sale is just a little extra =), if you don't like the items do like me and don't buy them lol, wait and see if there's something you are interested in. Still waiting this year SMILEY

There were a couple, one was a standard server transfer week early on, the one after EoF in February 2006 was a week of unlimited including account-to-account transfers since even those were automated and took mere seconds.

Apparently there was some sort of exploit possible since the automated system was completely shut down for some time after and account-to-account moves still require customer service to accomplish.  Now even that seems to be uncertain.

Yup. I bought the mount and the wings. I also got the triple SC (bought $50 so ended up getting $150 worth. So bought new expansion).

Wouldn't it rock if people wouldn't post their off-topic gimme gimme gimme posts in any thread with a dev post when they're clearly being ignored because the question has already been answered?  Hint, the answer is no free transfer.

I can attest to that. My ratonga provisioner Quania loves her set:

She's got a Second Breakfast backpack, too. But both bought long before the special prices on them this week (in fact it is specifically because of this armor and the backpack that she's a provisioner.. well.. and the pestulance weapon she has from the pre-EoF quests *laugh*).
