EverQuest 2 Wiki

A hot zone is a dungeon of Norrath that is selected daily to offer a higher than normal chance of dropping Exquisite chests. Hot zones first became active in game on August 28, 2009 on servers in the European Union and on September 5, 2009 (Labor Day weekend) in the United States. Under normal circumstances there is a single hot zone per day determined by a rotation.

How do I know which zone is the hot zone?[]

The hot zone appears in the bottom right corner of the welcome screen as you enter the game. You can bring this screen up later by typing /we or /welcome_info on any chat line or by pressing CTRL + L (default key setting) while in game.
