Scott Hartsman is the Senior Producer on Sony Online Entertainment's EverQuest II. As we begin to wind down our bi-weekly EverQuest II Q&As, we talk to him about some key components of the Echoes of Faydwer expansion due out very soon. Check back soon for a full expansion preview.
| MMORPG.com: Subclassing AAs. Can you expand on that? How will it work to improve your current skills?
Scott Hartsman: AA? What's an AA? Wait. You mean Achievements? :P
The initial release of Achievements had twelve trees, with two classes sharing each tree. This time, there are unique abilities for all 24 classes.
The ability lines are named and themed together. For instance, one line of abilities might make you a better tank, another might make you better at doing damage. It's all about giving people interesting decisions to make regarding the direction they wish to develop their characters, taken to the next level.
