All Around Norrath: Kunark Expansion

All Around Norrath: Kunark Expansion - EverQuest II -

In her bi-weekly All Around Norrath column, Adele Caelia travels the world of EQII to speak with the players about the game. This week she asks them: “What are your hopes and expectations for the upcoming expansion Rise of Kunark?”

When a new expansion draws near, the servers are alive with excitement. Players have hopes and dreams for the upcoming world that are hard to suppress until release day. Some of them get into beta and very often-small tidbits of information slip out among the population. These small tidbits fuel the excitement of others so that by release day everyone in the lands are brimming with anticipation.

Everquest II, at this point has a good record for developing great expansions. The last expansion, Echoes of Faydwer was the most grand of them all. Echoes of Faydwer took Norrath by storm, and not only was it well accepted by the players, it came out in the press with awesome reviews. It is hard to imagine an expansion that could come close to this one or even be better. Will Rise of Kunark stand up against its predecessor? Will its glory live in the shadow of the Fae? Only time will tell, and I can say that I have a hard time believing that it will.

Perhaps, for me, I just do not feel the same excitement because the Fae were a dream come true, and as for the Sarnak well, you wouldn’t see this High Elf associating with one! It could be that there are players out there that love to be evil, and the Sarnak are for them what the Fae were for me. Just maybe I’m no longer intrigued by a new race. Maybe it is time to go beyond adding new races and do just a bit more. What could beat out Echoes of Faydwer if Rise of Kunark doesn’t? A new class could do it. A new class or two would be something that we, the players, have not experienced before.
