for those folks behind on AAs, if you buy Chains of Eternity, you get an item you can claim 2 per account (not 1 per character) that if you are level 90 it dings you to 280AAs.

Killing dragons is my shit

10/20/12 12:54:25 AM#23

I've bought every Everquest 2 expansion so far, and I've been playing since the first day, but I am not sure about this. I play on Nagafen, and I really enjoyed the open world pvp, and I miss it, but what I miss more is a large population. It just seems like Everquest 2, at least on the Nagafen server, is really lacking in that population and that makes me wonder if I should resub / buy this expansion.

I recently purchased WoW with all the expansions, and I'm having a pretty good time with it, the quest lines are all over the place, it's a solid mmo, but the combat system just lacks so much in comparison to EQ2, but the population is there. So I'm not too sure what to do here.

I'll probably end up buying theexpansion and resubbing to get my Shadowknight to the new level cap, whether or not I will stick around to raid is up in the air. But I do miss this game when it was in it's prime.

They don't have a choice.  Consumers expect to play the same game forever.

Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.

I can't see them wasting time on it. At most perhaps improvements to certain textures (typically landscapes is the biggest bang for the buck without major engine improvements).

 

They are likely starting to put a large investment into Everquest Next and the Forge Light engine. With SOE putting so much emphasis on sandbox elements lately I would guess that is something we may see more of. Either incorporated into an existing IP or a new one. If they are smart they will expand EQ2 into a more true mmorpg. If they are stupid it will be EQ2 with better graphics.


No it'll never be fixed, I know that.

Every now and then I get bored and go back, thinking I'll get into it again but as soon as I login the engine starts chugging, shits the bed and I just can't stand it anymore.

Our CoE Collector’s Edition mercs (Templar & Paladin) are significantly “better” than the mercs in Freeport and Qeynos, but cost the same.

 

Chains of Eternity includes Destiny of Velious.

Age of Discovery will be sold separately.
