All I want to know is whether or not there will be instancing so I know whether or not to ignore it.

 

Also, the amount of hand holding. Smed claims little to none but I don't buy it. THAT I'll have to wait until beta to find out.

That there will be classes has already been clearly announced.  There won't be nearly as many as EQ2, rather "closer in numbers to the original EQ".

I never liked the idea of two kinds of druids, it made the Fury I played feel like half a druid compared to EQ 1's version.  I certainly hope they model them much more like EQ 1 and I certainly hope they don't go with EQ 2's combo based combat system.  I hate being told which buttons to push and in what order or suffer the consequences for not complying.

 

 

Combo based system? What are you talking about?

Unless you mean heroic opportunities? Which to be honest, are fairly worthless. I just put the starter in my macros and let them finish themselves.

Or were you talking about something else? Fatal follow up chains? Beastlord primal chains? I really don't know what else you could be talking about. Everything else is just a damage / heal priority list.

We live in a fantasy world, a world of illusion. The great task in life is to find reality.

I 'm with you there.  Tab Target is so yesteryear it isn't even funny.

If your idea of a Sandbox is open FFA Full Loot PvP, full crafted world with minimal support for anything combat then your sandbox ideas are bad! Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

As long as the combat is smooth and responsive, I'm fine with whatever. I'm not going in with expectations of it not being a Tab Target game.

Welcome to the dark side 

 
 
I myself am hoping for something akin to EQ1's class systems, though I hope they make the classes a little more interesting. Frankly, after 13 - 14 years the classes that exist now would be a little bland to have them regurgitated in another game. I am really hoping for a very large selection of races, though. In my honest opinion, more races = more content and starting area's to explore. As an altoholic, I could see much of my replayability coming from all of the different starting area's.

Precisely.

 

 

This is getting abit frustrating because I am noticing that not only were the Erudites NOT in the new poster but then one of the designers says in reference to them "We are doing our own thing". Which I guess means "they aren't here"......

 

 

Go human Diversity! *rolls eyes*

Any mmo worth its salt should be like a good prostitute when it comes to its game world- One hell of a faker, and a damn good shaker!

I think a lot of the splitting of classes was superfluous. I'm glad they are getting back to their roots somewhat.  The ones I will be keeping an eye on are:  Necro, Wiz, Enchanter and maybe the Druid.  Druids in EQ kicked ass.

 

I think I heard mention in one of the interviews that they will be including a group combat dynamic similar to Heroic Opportunities where, say, spellcasters can combine their talents to make one big BOOM or effect.  I think Dave was talking about that.

"EverQuest Next Column: A Different Kind of Norrath"

An article to speculate about what the panels will talk about.  Erm...kay.

I expect that there will be large flow of "Disappointed" threads when said panels come and go. People's expectation are far to high. Mind you I think this is in part due to hype/smed talking crap.

Time and time again some MMO has said it will re-invent the wheel or bring the fans exactly what they want and it fails. Maybe I am jaded, maybe I am realist.

Either way you look at it, there is a large resurgence in the want for sandboxes but I keep asking myself. If sandboxes we're the answer to MMO's problems....why did they dwindle in the first place?

As to the panels....I suspect we will hear "We can't/don't have an answer to that right now." a gazillion times!! Hope I am wrong.

Should be interesting and looking forward to what EQNext realistically brings to the table.

MMORPG Gamers/Developers need a reality check!

Yep, same here. Those cash shop reminders everywhere totally break immersion in an MMO. At least for me. But I don't have high hopes we won't see them in EQN. Even if you have a subscrption. Unfortunately....

 

I don't think EQN will have a subscription option. I very much doubt it. Only reason their old ones do Is because they originally did.

Can you quote some of the things Smed has said to over hype this game?

Read EQ Lore.  EQN is a new universe but it has to start somewhere from the original and in the original the Erudite's fled Qeynos so if they're not in Erudite the kerra are and that is exactly what the poster looks like not a val shir.

 

"Kerra trace their ancestry back to their first great leader, Kejaan. He travelled the continent of Odus, uniting the various tribes into one kingdom and ushering in an era of peace and prosperity. One day, Erud and his High Men arrived to settle the continent. This splinter group of humans took over much kerra land; even worse, a great plague infected many and caused massive deaths. The Kerra blamed the Heretics and their study of necromancy. Kejaan succumbed to the plague, leaving his son Vah Kerrath as leader. He vowed to make the Heretics pay.

During the civil war between the [Erudites] and the Heretics, a huge explosion of mystical forces teleported an entire kerra village to the dark side of the moon of Luclin. Vah Kerrath survived this journey and renamed his lost tribe the Vah Shir. The Kerra on Norrath scattered; some went west to settle Kerra Isle, others east to a tiny island in Erud's Crossing, and others fled deep into the Stonebrunt Mountains. Much later, a path to Luclin was breached and some of the Vah Shir returned to Kerra Isle, breeding a new, stronger people."

So if Erudites are not on Odus there is a reason for that.  EQN lore predates that event and could never happen in EQN period.  Which is why we see a kerran in the art posted.
 
 
I would suspect they're in qeynos still and not considered another race.  Which likely means you can make humans of any race/color.

Having never been a huge fan of EverQuest or EverQuest 2 I am hoping that EverQuest 3 will be different enough to interest me.

All I ask is the game to be more like EQ1 / SWG than EQ2. I know I'm asking the world but one can only hope.

Not sure how you fit classes into a sandbox, but I guess we will have to wait and see.  If they do have a rigid class structure, then it cannot be a sandbox in a shape or form.

How they approach the cash shop will greatly influence how this game ends up.  It doesn't matter what else they do if the UI is studded with advertisements and buttons prompting you to buy this, buy that.

The other thing is how much pressure there will be to push the cash shop and whether this shortchanges in-game achievement.  For example, you work really hard to defeat a boss to get a rare drop - only to see it offered for sale a month later for 50 SmedleyBucks.

I know SOE has to make money.  But please, please, please - don't subsume all other human values to that one end.

The absence of discussion of the revenue model and cash shop at this reveal is - revealing.  It is like the car salesmen techniques who reel you in, reel you in - then hit you at the very end with the "sticker" price which turns out not to include 90 percent of the things they showed you ("options").

I hope I am just being paranoid.

I think its a valid point.  There are going to be a lot of opportunities for Q&A, so hopefully that comes up.  It should.  I'll make a point of bringing it up over on EQ2Wire as Feldon and others who frequent his site will be going.  He's pretty good about digging up information.  If its a FreeRealms/EQN hybrid where you are bludgeoned with constant nickle and diming I will not be interested at all.  If the game is good and there is a subscription option, then that would be preferable (for me).
