November 6, 2020

DarqUI Unified Utility version includes the following changes:

  • You can now choose a new location for your DarqUI backup folder (Files page)

  • If you prefer to use the EQII default for any DarqUI-modified component, the utility can help. Check for updates, then right-click the file and choose "Use game default." This will revert any customized version and automatically "skip" (ignore) the DarqUI component for future downloads.

DarqUI Unified Notifications version is included in this download. No changes have been made since publishing in September.


Expansion 17 Beta: Reign of Shadows

Don't forget you can use DarqUI in Beta, to get beta versions of DarqUI files and to copy your Live and Test game settings over. Using DarqUI on the Beta server will not make any changes to your Live or Test installation.

The easiest way to make it work is to drop a copy of the utility into the \EverQuest II\BetaServer\UI\ folder:


When you open the utility from that location, it will detect that it is in Beta. Allow it to install if it's not already there, or check for updates if you have a previous version of DarqUI_v3 in Beta.

There will be a new tab, Beta Tools, that you can use to copy settings from Live or Test to Beta. This is not required -- all settings on this page are completely optional. Each section has a short Help window.


I will be posting beta files to the server this time, and you will be able to download them directly into your DarqUI Beta installation. When you check for updates from the utility in the BetaServer folder you will get a server alert pop-up that tells you which files to choose.



September 19, 2020

  • Renaming a character now includes DarqUI components that don't have a dedicated setup page

  • The utility will use an internal server list when Census is not responding
  • The utility now gives explicit messages for specific actions when Census is not responding

  • Precast timers (purple) no longer activate in combat unless there is a monitored spell in that slot


Beta GU 115: Reignite the Flames

June 2, 2020: DarqUI Unified Utility

Version includes the following changes:
  • Added a startup method for determining the best way to connect to Census

Recently Daybreak changed the way Census is accessed, and it is unknown whether this is a permanent change. Therefore this version of the utility performs a check at startup that should give you access to Census whether or not the change is reverted in the future. If you still get the message about the server list being inaccessible, please let me know in the DarqUI discussion forum.

October 15, 2019: Bag Sorting and Bank Window updates

New controls enable bag sorting by name/type, level and tier, with or without a confirmation window

September 8, 2019

February 9, 2019

Implied Target

The Implied Target window can now be resized horizontally, similar to the Target window. Choose normal or large size from the utility

PvP Beta

You can use DarqUI on the Beta server by copying the utility to the EverQuest II\BetaServer\UI\ folder and running it from there. It will create a separate DarqUI installation that won't interfere with your UI on Live servers


You can now submit EQ2MAP Points of Interest (POI) directly to your Windows browser instead of copy-pasting from the in-game browser. Use the utility to download the new Add POI window. The DarqUI URL Helper must be running in order to use the new feature

Also on the EQ2MAP page of the utility add eq2ui_popup_add_poi.xml to the Ignore List so the EQ2MAP Updater won't overwrite the file.

December 27, 2018

One-Button Pet Pull

Controllable Pet, Warder and Construct classes can now choose their pet's protection states after returning from a one-button automatic pull. When the backoff timer expires, your pet can optionally
  • Auto Assist (default off)
  • Protect Me (default on)
  • Protect Self (default on)

Thanks to SerenityMW for the idea and for testing

December 21, 2018


The Login window has been returned to the UI with a tabbed character selection list similar to the Shutdown (Camp) window. It uses the same data, so no extra configuration is needed. If you prefer to log directly in to the game without using the Launchpad, you will have access to all of your characters once again.

Note: If you previously checked the Skip checkbox on the updater in order to use an older version, remember to uncheck it so you can get the new version.

Thanks to Firefae and Suziekew for making the request, Suziekew and Rosyposy for testing

December 19, 2018

DarqUI Unified Notifications v1.2.0.0

DarqUI_Notify has been redesigned and offers two new features. In addition to checking periodically for DarqUI and EQ2MAP updates, v1.2.0.0 offers the new URL Helper which opens Web links in your Windows browser instead of the in-game browser.

Using the helper also gives you access to an in-game command to invoke Fullscreen Windowed Mode. This mode improves the experience of opening your Windows browser while playing, without reducing the game size as in standard windowed mode.

Thanks to Armageddoux for inspiring the URL Helper feature in this thread, and for help with testing. The notifier app is included in the download on this page. How to use the URL Helper

DarqUI Unified Utility v3.1.1.9

Utility version is a minor maintenance update that fixes two bugs in the Inventory module. If you are not having trouble with Inventory, then you can continue using v3.1.1.8. Inventory now displays correctly for:

Thanks to SerenityMW and FoxdenVixen for reporting these errors and testing the fixes

December 13, 2018

Mount and Familiar Presets

December 4, 2018

  • Normal and Large size target windows have been updated to include the new horizontal resizing default feature (image)

Audible Countdown
  • Configurable sounds have been added to the new group and raid /countdown command. This is an experimental mod, so it's not on the DarqUI updater. Unzip and drop the file below into your custom UI folder if you want to try it out. Sound variables are near the bottom of the file if you want to change the sounds. You can configure a separate sound for each of the five seconds and the "Begin!" display, as well as turn on/off the feature.


November 13, 2018: Chaos Descending

A new version of DarqUI is available. Version includes the following new features and improvements:

Utility v3.1.1.8 adds broker log support for non-US clients. If you are not having trouble displaying broker logs, then you can continue using v3.1.1.7. Thanks to saw-lau for reporting the bug

Shutdown (Camp) Window
  • Rearrange the order of account tabs using the Nickname field. See the help file for instructions
Thanks to Hiza for the suggestion

Broker Logs
  • Display a summary of interesting broker sales metrics for each character: total receipts, most popular item, biggest spender and more
  • Drill down to view and sort individual purchases and sales in a spreadsheet format
  • Use the sales grid to calculate additional data such as average price paid for an item
  • Parse character's entire history or narrow the results for today, current week, past 12 months, etc.
Thanks to Suziekew for the idea. Thanks to Suziekew and Rosyposy for their very detailed testing and feedback


Oct 25: Changes to the Character window for Live and Beta are on the updater. Beta testers still need the files in the zip package below.

Oct 10, 2018: Chaos Descending Beta (Oct 23)

For Beta Testers: you can download everything using the DarqUI utility except the items in the zipped file below. Check the "Skip" checkbox for Guild and Enemy List, and use the Beta versions below instead.

darqui_betafiles_oct23.zip (Oct 23)

To use DarqUI on the Beta server, drop a copy of the DarqUI Unified utility into \EverQuest II\BetaServer\UI\ and run it from there. The utility will detect its location and download into the correct folder. You will also get a Beta Tools tab that will assist with porting settings from Live or Test.

If you are not a Beta tester, you don't need to do anything special. You can use the DarqUI updater as usual to receive file updates for Live servers as they occur.


Oct 19: Transport Window

The DarqUI Transport Window has two new features:
  • Favorites tab
  • Option to click the transport categories instead of mouseover

Click the Edit button to add and remove favorite transports for each character and configure category tab behavior for all characters

Thanks to SerenityMW for both suggestions. Thanks to SerenityMW and Rosyposy for testing and feedback

If you are currently using the DarqUI account-switch feature on the main login page, please migrate to the new multi-account camp window. The old loginscene file is not compatible and will be deprecated in the near future.


Sep 20, 2018: Target Alerts

Using the Extended Player window you can receive visual and audible alerts when your target is a quest update, gives bonus AA experience, or matches a specific name. Use the Player/Extended Player page in the Window Manager to configure this new feature.

The Set Price window has been amended to include large broker price presets. Large presets are platinum-only, and can be saved up to 10 million (9,999,999p) for each character

Thanks to Aniko for the suggestion

Aug 21, 2018: Alternate Letterbox

This new window duplicates the function of the built-in game letterbox with some technical distinctions and additional features.

  • Specify black or a different color
  • Change opacity
  • Change size of upper and lower areas independently
  • Show or hide decorative tinsel borders
  • Allow or prevent mouse click-through

Examine, Target, Implied Target
Updated code to reflect default changes (Jun 19)

Nav Bar
All pages stay visible when the Nav Bar is maximized near the bottom of the game window. Choose normal or large size from the updater

Harvesting Helper
Save a default speed setting for each character

Player and Extended Player
Mouse-over Group window spell buttons can be added from the window manager. Choose normal or large size from the updater

Thanks to SerenityMW who suggested and tested all three of the above improvements (Jun 9)

Updated to reflect default changes (Jun 5)

Updated to reflect default changes (Jun 2)

Added an extra-large font size choice for cooldown timers. Hotkey icons larger than 50 pixels will get the larger font by default. This can be changed to suit your preferences. Thanks to Furiant for the idea

Item examine updated to reflect default changes. Choose normal or large size from the DarqUI utility

Optionally add tooltips to the stat area. Thanks to SerenityMW for the idea and for testing

Nav Bar
A new default control replaces the +/- buttons. Use the mouse wheel to scroll between nav bar pages, or click to show all pages at once. If you prefer the original +/- buttons, you can choose them while in Edit Mode. Thanks to Aniko for the suggestion

Gear Buff Macros
A new control to change tile spacing along with tile size (again thanks to SerenityMW)

New EQ2U and Wikia link buttons on the recipe create and prepare pages

Updates to Familiars page to match default changes

Quest Journal

  • A new Close on Add checkbox on the Collections tab. Thanks to SerenityMW for the idea and for very detailed feedback and testing

Nav Bar

A new floating Nav Bar duplicates the Experience window Command Bar in a separate window. You can detach the Nav Bar from the Experience window and move it to a more convenient place on screen, or use both nav bars at the same time. Icon sets in the two windows are independent, so you can use Edit Mode to configure up to 20 different commands.

Activate the Nav Bar from the Experience Window page in the Window Manager. Choose normal or large size from the Updates page in the DarqUI utility.

Update Mar 12: slight change in function -- when the floating nav bar is the only one present, it will automatically choose a page based upon which XP bar is showing. When both nav bars are present, only the main (docked) nav bar will choose pages automatically


Inspired by popular add-ons like Mystal's Travel Hub, the new DarqUI Transport window gathers dozens of transportation modes from around Norrath -- spells, portals, evacs, calls, and more. Transport categories are aware of your class, race and tradeskill class, showing spells, traits and teleportation gear specific to your character.
  • Free up hotbar slots
  • Stop digging through inventory for transport items
To access the window, a pre-configured icon can be added to the XP Command Bar or the Start Menu. If you prefer instead to add a button to the Icon Bar or a hotbar macro, the command is

show_window Custom.Transport.Toggle

Many thanks to Rosyposy for suggesting the window, and for her truly outstanding feedback and testing. We hope you find the new Transport window to be useful.

The DarqUI Chat window has a new option to remove redundant input boxes from specific chat windows. Right-click -> Window Settings and choose Frame and Titlebar to remove the input line. Choose Frame Only or None to show the input line (see images in the comments section below)

Important! In order to chat, you must have at least one input box present on screen. If you find that you cannot chat after the update, use the above instructions to show the input box, then right-click the chat window and click Always Chat Here

September 26, 2017: DarqUI v3.1.1.2

Gear Buff Macros
Configure special macro buttons in a new window that will automatically equip an activatable "clicky" item, cast the buff, then re-equip the previous item. See image below. Inspired by this conversation on the EQ2Wire forums

A variety of item types beyond gear pieces are good candidates for a buff macro including totems (runspeed, invisibility, etc.), mender bot, teleport items, food and drink, tinkered lifestones and manastones, repair kits, divining rods. If you use a specific mount when tradeskilling, you can set up a macro to switch to it from inventory
Use macro tiles to cast item buffs and spells in three ways:
+ directly from inventory
+ equip and cast
+ equip, cast and re-equip
Monitor Maintained buffs to remind you to recast
Send a custom line of text into your chat log to assist with ACT refresh timers
Dynamically resize macro tiles
Toggle the window from Start menu or Command Bar
Optionally display the macro window on login

Setup is relatively painless using the DarqUI utility, and you will probably want to use it even though the in-game Window Manager has a setup page. There is plenty of help if you click the [?] on the Gear Buff Macros utility page. Also check out the Gear Buff Macros tutorial

Thanks to Sneaks and halldor for testing and feedback
