  • EQ2_DoV_twoheads

    On February 22nd, 2011, the creators of EverQuest II, released the game's seventh expansion, Destiny of Velious.  In a genre that sees more flops than wins these days, and during a time that marks a disturbing trend of major titles going free-to-play before the dust even settles the pretty release packages, EQ2 is still going strong. Being able to claim such a feat is more than just an accomplishment in this market, it is a full fledged badge of established game honor that very few get to claim. 

    <i>Two heads are also scarier than one.</i>

    The Scars of Velious was one of the most popular expansions for the original EverQuest so the EQ2 team had a lot to live up to when it came to delivering these beloved zones and characters to the world of Norrath once again.  With stiff competition this gaming season and plenty of player of nostalgia to live up to, did SOE manage to hit the mark in this veteran game?  Patched, locked, and loaded I hopped into game to see what DoV has to offer.
