A quick overview of the new stuff:

Inspired by mystical visions, a crew of explorers, sailing the uncharted waters beyond the Shattered Seas, have found an isolated continent plagued by dark curses and discordant energies. Ruins of an ancient civilization are scattered across the landscape, while the imposing silhouette of an opulent castle rises from the highest point of the land for all to see. Whispers can be heard, in the native villages found along Vetrovia's coast, of its supernatural master and the horrors it contains, but are any of them true?

It will take Norrath's exceptional adventurers and artisans to survive the primal terrors and arcane forces found in Vetrovia's Svarni Expanse, Karuupa Jungle, and Mahngavi Wastes in order to breach the ramparts of Castle Vacrul and help cleanse the land, once and for all.

The Visions of Vetrovia expansion includes the following new features:
  • Conquer New Raids
    Level your hero up to the new limit of 125! Conquer all new solo, heroic, and raid content in the magical lands of Vetrovia, and earn powerful weapons and armor.
  • Tackle New Feats
    It'll take Norrath's exceptional heroes to survive the primal terrors and arcane forces found in the new lands of Vetrovia. Gather your forces and gear up to help protect Vetrovia, and endeavor to cleanse it of the malign forces that threaten all of Norrath.
  • Master Your Tradeskills
    Esteemed artisans: speed up your crafting for things you've already perfected with Tradeskill Blueprints and take your character to new heights with five new Tradeskill levels. Decorate your house with dozens of new Vetrovian items.
  • Explore New Zones
    Dense jungles, deinodons, zombies, witches and cannibal pygmies. Try not to get eaten while you explore Vetrovia's expanse and meet new friends and foes along your journey to cleanse the land.
