death penalty (eq2)  

While many would argue that EverQuest II has no death penalty there are still a few things you'll have to cope with.

  • You will temporarily be running below your normal abilities.
  • Most of your buffs and item effects will need to be recast.
  • Every death your armor and other equipment takes damage (10% for most armor, 5% for Fabled). If it gets to zero you're effectively running around naked. You'll need to pay a mender to repair your gear.
  • You'll receive experience debt, which you must work off before again receiving full credit for your adventures. You can "sleep off" debt simply be being offline.
  • Unless another player revived you, you will probably come to far from where you died.
