Heritage Quests

There are a number of items in EQ2 which appeared in EQ1. These items are all questable, the quests for them are known as heritage quests. They sound like a lot of fun, though I think in most cases you have to be close to level 40 to complete them. Most of the items are familiar to EQ1 players.

One of the things to realize is that completing a heritage quest will result in a substantial status award, 37,500 status points. At least some of these quests also offer intermediate rewards for completing some portion of them. Here’s a list, which I think is comprehensive:
