EQ2 Icon Quick Start Guide Game Update 49

You can get the full details from the Game Update 49 patchnotes but here’s a quick start guide so you can jump right in and get D.I.R.T.Y.!

Live Event

The live event for Raising the Banner takes place is Sinking Sands and is full of quests and new items for you to purchase with the rewards. The D.I.R.T.Y. Encampment is visible from the Sinking Sands dock, up on the ridge.

Once there speak to Jimbo McDaniel, the D.I.R.T.Y. Merchant at -1379,-168,-739. You’ll have to do his set of four quests in order to spend the D.I.R.T.Y. money given as a reward by the quest givers. Note to Paxmar: you have to kill evil things to gain his favour so no presents for you, I’m afraid!

Tradeskillers with at least level 20 should speak to Zastik Togginscrog, the D.I.R.T.Y. Excavation Overseer at -1338,-167,-765 who will offer you a recipe for a class-appropriate item and ask you to supply the camp. This is a repeatable quest. You will need harvests from your level tier.

There is a purple carpet at -1386,-168,-740, next to Jimbo McDaniel . Take this carpet to reach the D.I.R.T.Y. Excavation Site. Here you will find more quests including some repeatables by speaking to the local NPCs.

Mentoring other players now gives an AA bonus. The higher the level difference, the greater the bonus.
