All Around Norrath - Rise of Kunark

All Around Norrath - Rise of Kunark -

In her weekly All Around Kunark column, Adele Caelia interviews players of EverQuest II in-game to find out their opinions on a variety of subjects. Today, it's the Rise of Kunark expansion.

Rise of Kunark is now in its second week and I must admit that although I was a bit of a naysayer before, I am quite pleased now. The expansion is completely turning the world of Norrath upside down! The new gear has stats undreamed of, and I have almost completely replaced all of my fabled raid gear with treasured gear from quests!

As expected, I’m sure that a few raiders are slightly upset that the gear they have raided for the last six months is immediately obsolete, but on the other hand it is nice that all types of players can get great gear just by questing. Being a mage, let me tell you, the quest gear is extremely mage heavy, so much so that I have been spending a lot of time debating which I should wear. I am more pumped to raid now than ever before. I know that if the treasured gear is this awesome that the raid gear is going to blow us away!

Ah, Everquest, you finally live up to your name! The game is now truly living up the second half of its name, and this has also put a few people in a grumble. They have taken out the experience grind and replaced it with questing! Questing is now the only way to level in a timely manner, and in my opinion this is how it should be. It’s not called Everquest for nothing! Those players who used to find themselves a nice spot in a dungeon, stay up all night, and grind to level are finding themselves in quite the pickle. In order to level this way it would now take weeks! I can’t deny that this makes me giggle a little in delight! In my opinion it is pretty pointless to play a game called Everquest and have a fit because you have to quest…
