This week's Wayback Wednesday features EverQuest. Our own Rob Lashley had the opportunity to check out the game's new Hero's Forge with Lead Designer Adam Bell. We've got the video interview along with a terrific recap. Read on!
The Hero’s Forge is an upgrade feature that players can purchase through Sony’s market place with Station Cash. This feature is on a per character basis. Once you purchase the Hero’s Forge you will receive a starter set of armor which you can see in the video (chain on my character, cloth on Adam). These are cosmetic items that do not alter stats on your items. One question for all the men out there: Did you ever think you would be this concerned about playing dress up when you were a kid? There are also alternative methods to obtain gear besides purchasing them. You will receive items from completing raid bosses, completing achievements, killing random creeps (as long as they drop loot), and through crafting.
