Ancient Heroes Brings "Classic EQ" Fun

Ancient Heroes Brings "Classic EQ" Fun - EverQuest -

The latest update to hit EverQuest entitled, "Ancient Heroes", is now live! The new update is kickin' it old school by allowing players to travel back to the days of yore, before the Lands of Kunark had been discovered, and get another taste of some classic EverQuest.

An NPC in the Plane of Knowledge will allow you to morph into a Level 50 character, fully tricked out in classic gear, and you'll be able to go off and tackle the Kobolds in Nagafen's Lair or the Frogloks of Guk, even that old beast Lady Vox is back.

Of course, those of you out there who aren't nostalgic about EverQuest might be scoffing at the notion of retreading old content. Well, if nostalgias not enough for you, there are new rewards available for those who want to party (Get it? Party!? I'm horrible.) like it's 1999.

There are some other interesting inclusions in the Ancient Heroes update, such as the new gender and name altering potions available on the Marketplace. There is also the appropriately named "Witness Protection Pack" which combines the gender and name altering potions for those of you who are on the run from the law, or just got caught cybering in the city center, and everyone on the boards has seen the transcript. Maybe you just want to feel like a woman today, I don't know!

Patch notes for the Ancient Heroes update are available here.
