#yearofdarkpaw

YEAR OF DARKPAW

2024 marked the 25th Year of EverQuest. In celebration, it was declared the 'Year of Darkpaw.' Ass one of those odd coincidences, 2024 is also the Year of the Dragon on the Chinese Calendar.

A new zone, Tides of Time, was added with the January 2024 Patch. Even though it has been referred to an the 'Anniversary Tower,' it is actually separate from the 25th Anniversary Events. So, the Year of Darkpaw is not to be confused with 25th Anniversary Events, which also happened in 2024.

The Year of Darkpaw Achievements are listed here.

The Year of Darkpaw saw new month-long events (that were added each month) during 2024. The collect set events only lasted one (1) month at a time (they activated for a month long time frame and then deactivated when the next months events went active). The collects sets activated on the 1st of each month. The Tower Key Quests / Missions activated after each months patch and remained active every month thereafter.

The Year of Darkpaw also included special monthly Marketplace offerings (one free and one for a price) that changed each month (first of the month).

TIDES OF TIME

The Tides of Time zone is a floating tower off the beach in North Desert of Ro (step on the platform that you see on the beach, to zone in). As a note, you do not actually have to run up the spiral ramp to every floor. In the center of the entrance area is a round portal pad (in the beam of light). Click the portal pad and it will pop you upwards to the next platform portal (about 3 Floors up, each time).

The Year of Darkpaw Tides of Time missions / quests scale to your Character Level (thus, things can vary a bit from what you see in this guide, such as MoB names).

Tides of Time includes it's own specialty coin, Timeless Token, which are spent with Miacallie Herlsas in Tides of Time on the first floor (where you zone in). She will offer you an increasing number of items, to include the special Tides of Time Type 25 Aug Slot Items (and Augs), as you complete Year of Darkpaw quests and achievements.
