Win a copy of EverQuest II: Sentinel's Fate tonight in Massively's "Keys of Fate" event! [Closed!]
You have an EverQuest II subscription (or want to sign up for a trial?) You want to participate in a fun event, solve a few puzzles, and have a chance at winning a collector's edition key for Sentinel's Fate just in time for tomorrow's launch? Then do we have the offer for you!

Tonight, starting at 8:30 PM ET (5:30 PM PT), boot up your EverQuest II to the Lucan d'Lere server and get your browsers pointed to Massively.com. We're hosting an across-the-internet scavenger hunt, finishing out with a race across Norrath to find our roving Dark Elven reporter, Seccia Ravenloft.

Seccia has been equipped with not one, but two key codes that will unlock the Sentinel's Fate collector's edition in addition to 10 key codes that will unlock the standard retail version. All of these keys will let you access the Sentinel's Fate headstart, which begins tomorrow!

Need all the details? We have them right after the break!
The event is now closed

Thank you to everyone who participated! Check out the full walkthrough and the list of winners on the EverQuest II Community News board!

What you need:
  • An active EverQuest II subscription (Editor's Note: Trial accounts do work! They may be gimped, but even a level 1 trial account character can find Seccia! Trust me, I just did it! Sign up for one today!)
  • A character on the Lucan d'Lere server that's not in the island tutorial zone (any level/alliance character will be able to find Seccia.)
What to expect:

Starting at 8:30 PM ET (5:30 PM PT) this post and the thread over at the EverQuest II community news forum will be updated with a puzzle. Solve the puzzle to find the location of the next one. Each puzzle solved will bring you one step closer to learning Seccia's location in Norrath.

It is possible to find Seccia without solving the puzzles. However, the final puzzle will contain instructions on how to properly hail Seccia. If you don't hail her appropriately, be prepared for a wave of Dark Elven insults and not the promised expansion key. In short, the puzzles must be solved in order to win.

Some of the puzzles may not be easy for a single person to solve, so you might need a friend or two to help you out.

Keys may not be claimed "in absentia." Basically, you can't "get a key for a friend who helped you." Your friend must be present to win a key from Seccia. One key will be given per-person untl all keys are given out.

Once all keys are given away, this post and the EverQuest II forum thread will be updated to notify all participants that the event is over. The winners will then be announced as well.

What you can win:

The first two players to find Seccia and hail her appropriately (solve all of the puzzles) will win a key code that will unlock the Sentinel's Fate collector's edition on their accounts. The collector's edition awards the following bonuses:

  • Guarding of the Reasoned armor piece
  • Seven day head start access
  • Exclusive in-game Highland Stalker mount
  • 500 station cash to spend on virtual items in the EQII marketplace
  • Legends of Norrath Fall of Erudin scenario
The next 10 players after the first two to find Seccia will win a key code that will unlock the Sentinel's Fate retail edition on their accounts. The retail edition awards the following bonuses:

  • Guarding of the Reasoned armor piece
  • Seven day head start access
  • 500 Station cash to spend on virtual items in the EQII marketplace
  • Legends of Norrath Fall of Erudin scenario
All of the key codes can be redeemed through the Station.com account management screen.

Anything else?

Have fun! We hope you all have a good time with this event, and we'll see you back here tonight at 8:30 PM ET for the unveiling of the first puzzle!

Also, a big thank you to our friends at Sony Online Entertainment, who were gracious enough to provide us with the prizes for this event! Thank you!
