The EverQuest community has gone to war over an infernal dragon that hasn’t been defeated in nearly 20 years.
.s often leave us with anecdotes worth telling, especially those that are long-lived or have a large community of players. This time it’s time to talk about Ever Questone of the most important titles of this genre that has left us with a most interesting story that the GRYOnline portal has shared.
In 2000, the expansion The Scars of Velious was published, in which a dungeon that housed four powerful guardians in the form of dragons was included as a great novelty. Although it was difficult to eliminate them, he had his compelling reason, because they were those in charge of guarding the almighty Kerafyrmwhich is considered today as the most devastating final boss of all.
Such is the case that it could be said that it is practically impossible to beat. In fact, it has only been achieved once and it was in 2003, at a time when three player guilds had to get together to finish him off, although it must also be said that they succeeded because the battle had some errors, since under normal conditions it is considered crazy to try.
Even so, it took three hours to defeat him. In any case, for more than 20 years everyone has wanted to stay away from him, because once released it is capable of unleashing chaos and destroying absolutely everything it finds. That is why the community agreed never to wake him up again so that panic would not spread.
However, since the guardians were simpler, it was determined to slowly eliminate the guardians to get their valuable rewards, wait for them to respawn to finish them off and so on, but always without reaching the point of awakening Kerafyrm.
That does not mean that not everyone was in favor of the situation. On the Project 1999 Green server this agreement was not cordially respected, hence the Seal Team guild took over the monopoly of the guardianswhich provoked the fury of other groups that were not capable of taking these precious loot, hence clashes arose between all of them.
Ultimately, the fight led to some desperately wanting to awaken Kerafyrm, but past events saw this as a grave mistake. In the end, some members of the Seal Team did not agree with their leaders and became independent to create the Kerafyrm’s Dream group with the aim of awakening the dragon.
So that it would not be a dictatorship, a vote was made among all in case there were not so many people in favor, but the majority chose to continue. To no one’s surprise, the omen was fulfilled and they were not able to beat Kerafyrmso that it wiped out everything in its path once again, disappearing over the horizon until one day another group tries to make history.
