EverQuest Next Landmark’s closed beta test will begin on March 26, Sony Online Entertainment has announced.

As a result the game’s servers will be down today, March 24 and tomorrow, March 25 to allow SOE time to wipe data and set up new islands. “To get ready for the end of Alpha, we *highly recommend* that you template any items on your claims that you want to resurrect during Closed Beta,” the developer wrote.

“Consider templating things with props, without props, and possibly even re-textured as dirt or something simple so that you can rebuild it easily when you have few resources available.”

The server wipe will delete everything except character names, templates, and anything purchased from the marketplace and Founders Pack items. “When Closed Beta begins, you will need to choose a new appearance, gather new resources, craft new tools and make new claims from scratch again. Everyone starts at the same place,” SOE added.
