SCARS OF VELIOUS

(SoV)

 

Scars of Velious was the second (2nd) Everquest expansion, released December 5, 2000.

This expansion introduced the continent of Velious, introduced frost giants, coldain dwarves, two new "ethereal planes" (Growth, & Mischief) and the unique character MOB of "The Sleeper."

The Sleeper (aka Kerafyrm) was a unique dragon. Players raced to wake the dragon who could only be awoken just once.... ever (on each server)!

Needless to say, once awakened, Kerafyrm rampaged across zones (yes, this MOB could zone). Once Kerafyrm was finally awakened and rampaged it's way towards Skyfire, the dragon was then gone forever (Kerafyrm the Awakened, did show up in a different zone in a later expansion, but the "Sleeper" remains absent, to this day).

This unique event has never been repeated and it caused much controversy among players. Not only did few players get to experience the event, but the awakening actually changed some zones. Items that were once available, were no longer available (no longer dropped).

To add to the controversy, Kerafyrm was intended to be unkillable. However, several guilds got together on the Rallos Zek server to try anyway. Sony interferred to counter a bug that may have allowed them to actually win. Sony later apologized and allowed them to try again.

This expansion also introduced a "standard" that would generally last to the present day, with "expansion-based" quest series. Specifically, a series of quests across many zones that leads to an increasingly better and better item (Ring of Dain Frostweaver IV, Blessed Coldain Prayer Shawl...).
