Hardcore Heritage is a yearly event where they revisit some older zones and update them to provide a more challenging environment. Each zone update lasts a few weeks and then they revert it back to the old zone.

2012 Edit

Hardcore Heritage zone revamps begin with Blackburrow and the Temple of Cazic Thule on May 11th, 2012! Lower Guk and Unrest will transform on June 1st, and Crushbone and Permafrost will transform on June 22nd.

Game Update Notes: Wednesday, May 9, 2012

The schedule for 2012 is as follows:


May 11 – May 31?


June 1 - June 21?


June 22 - ???

  • Crushbone (Level 90) a/k/a Clan Crushbone - There's a new challenge for two to three groups of players, can you defeat Emperor Crush and his stalwart allies?
Note that the Hardcore Heritage revamped Crushbone will not cause any faction problems with the Indigo Brotherhood that the normal zone does.
This revamp and raid is aimed at roughly T2 [HoT] difficulty and reward. This was stated as much in the Webcast I did a month ago [June 2011] or so.

Lady Vox sits in the icy depths of Permafrost, her spidery companions lying in wait for those adventurers who are willing to challenge this queen amongst dragons.

These classic zones have been upgraded to be a challenge for level 90 players, and both include raids to further reward those ready for new risks. Get to the upgraded Crushbone and Permafrost today. They won’t last long!

Raids Edit

Clan Crushbone Edit

Demise of the Emperor is an 18 person instanced raid. It is given by Elwin Faerlin at the zone line of Clan Crushbone. It has a lockout of 2 days, 6 hours.

It was dropping the same loot as the group Clan Crushbone mobs, however this was fixed on the night of July 5, 2011.

Permafrost Caverns Edit

Lady Vox's Lair is a 54 person raid in Permafrost Caverns. It is designed as Tier 2 HoT difficulty, with Tier 3 HoT rewards.

The raid has several checks in place to prevent people from zoning in unless they were present during kills or they arrive soon afterward.
Players don't need to kill A Guardian of Vox to gain access to Vox's Lair, though anyone who wants to participate in the raid will need to click on the door to Vox's Lair soon after the Guardian has been killed (they should have enough time to make their way to the door before it stops working, though it won't work for too long)!

You are correct in that once flagged for entry into Vox's Lair, you will always have it. Those who do not have the flag should still be able to receive it from killing the Guardian, and/or clicking on the door soon after the Guardian's death.

Ellyra, EQ Developer

The respawn timer on the A Guardian of Vox in order to get flagged or trigger to spawn the guardian is 2 hours plus or minus 20 minutes.


UPDATE: With the July 6, 2011 patch the following is now true -

Anyone without a lockout should be able to access Vox's Lair if A Guardian of Vox is down, regardless of who killed him.
