EverQuest II + Jumpgate Evolution News

  • There are new cinematics to be had for the EverQuest 2 expansion Kingdom of Sky. You can get the movie here here.

    Sony seems to be going through a growing pain at the moment. It's certain that Blizzard has shaken them off the mountain that they've been king of for nearly six years. With any luck they'll come through this phase with some fresh new ideas and content that screams play me.

  • Ok this one time in EQ we were storming the Plane of Sky...

    Sound familiar? Looks like they're bringing back Sky. If I still played the game I'd be ecstatic. If I still played hah!

    It was a fun zone. However, this time it's supposedly bigger, badder and filled with more monsters. GameCloud interviews Ryan Schwayder about this new expansion

    Gamecloud - First, how did the idea for the Kingdom of Sky expansion come about?

    Ryan "Blackguard" Shwayder - We'd been planning this expansion for some time, planting seeds of the story throughout the base game and Desert of Flames, as well as in the back-story for EverQuest II. With the collapse of some of the planes in the absence of the gods, the effects of such an occurrence would be felt throughout Norrath.

  • Looks like this scary bug we call romance has hit all of the developers. SOE has it's own version in the form of Erollisi Day.

    It's time to spread the love, Norrath; Erollisi Day is upon us! Speak with Stinky in the Commonlands or Goldie in Antonica to show the fullness of your heart. You may be tasked with finding hearts among the dangers of Norrath. Like love, these items are hard to find. Make sure your setting for Particle Quality is greater than Minimal, or love will surely escape you.

    Let's hear it for this Hallmark Holiday that allows us to get free candy and gear!

Read on for the list of titles awarded for participation in Arena Champions combat!

  • Sony put up a new Character Progression Dev Article on the EverQuest 2 page. I don't play the game anymore but reading it was quite interesting.

    Players now select their profession at character creation instead of moving from archetype to class to subclass. For example, you can choose to play a Wizard at character creation. When you arrive in the world, you will be a Wizard--not a Mage. Distinct spells and arts designed for each profession are now given immediately in place of the more generic archetype and class versions. You are a member of your final profession right away instead of waiting 19 levels to do so.

    Some of the previous class and subclass quests still exist, but they are not required to progress in your chosen profession and will no longer restrict your level growth. Existing characters that were at the archetype or class level will be prompted to choose a profession before logging into the game. Existing spells and arts will be replaced (at the same quality level) by the new profession-specific abilities.

    Well what do you know? Evolution at it's best.

  • Does a mild winter have you crying in your snow boots?

    Get your snow and frost fix from the folks at Ten Ton Hammer's EverQuest II Community Site! Deep in the snowy Norrathian land known as Everfrost, where the giant spiders and the Coca-Cola bears live, lies an enormous dungeon. This zone is home to the mighty dragon Vox and is crawling with angry Ice Giants. Why are they angry? It's freezing in there! You'd be mad too.

    As the story goes, the Lady Vox and the Lord Nagafen fell in love and wished to create a child of that love. It was forbidden that they mate, being dragons of opposing elements, and they were then imprisoned away from each other to keep a child from ever being brought to reality. The Lady Vox was imprisoned in the awe-inspiring caves of Permafrost, where she lived out the rest of her days, until her death, brought by one named the "Truthbringer", leaving her spirit behind to forever haunt her frozen kingdom. Her mate, Lord Nagafen was sent to Lavastorm and a good portion of the quests within these zones, brings to light their story.

    Savanja will be your tour guide as you experience all that Permafrost has to offer, only at Ten Ton Hammer EverQuest II community site!
