  • Busting out the Berserking!

    Like to go crazy, get in the middle of crap and just whale on stuff? Get professional help. If you Want to be a real beserker, Savanja has put together a wonderful guide including tactics and updated spell lists.

    The Berserker, the master of chaos, and the bringer of hurt. These hardened warriors thrive on madness and destruction. With heavy plate armor and menacing weapons, those unfortunate enough to be caught in their wake will cower before their obvious power.

    With the choice of being good or evil, the berserker makes a great choice of class no matter where you wish to unleash your fury.

    Crazy Go Nuts University is now in session. Read Sav's great guide at EQ2 - TenTonHammer

  • Pirates...Ninjas

    We see the drama and hear the story behind it, but why are the superior pirates compared to ninjas on a regular basis? Slide takes a fun look at these two groups (in which the pirates are cooler) and weighs the pros and cons of each side (which of course the pirate side is better).

    The interesting thing about the Pirate vs. Ninja debate is how widespread it is. It matters not where you go, be it down the street for a coffee or surfing across the web searching for 10 ways to make toast, there will be opinions about who would win in a fight or who is better overall. The unfortunate truth is that the Pirates vs. Ninjas discussion induces eye rolling almost as much as Chuck Norris facts for the simple fact that it's talked about in such tremendous quantities

    Check out this fun article about how much better pirates are at EQ2 - TenTonHammer. No real interest in EverQuest 2, software piracy, or ninja looting required!

  • LotRO - TenTonHammer interviews the White Wizard!

    What prompted Gandalf to ask Bilbo to surrender his magic ring? What really happened after Gandalf, along with the balrog, plunged into the chasm in Moria? How did Gandalf the Grey return as Gandalf the White? Our reporter in Middle-earth meets with the legendary wizard to learn his secrets.

    “What can you tell me about who you are, and where you come from?”

    “That,” said Gandalf, “is rather complicated.” He reached behind his beard and seemed to draw a pipe from nowhere. He continued to talk as he filled the bowl. “I came to Middle-earth as one of the Istari, the order of wizards who arrived after the first millennium of the Third Age.”

  • Raiding as a lost art...

    In EverQuest II, they're called hard core, uber, or elite, but most of us just refer to them as raiders. Raiders are a special breed of players who exhibit skill, dedication, and motivation escaping the average player. Former raider Kiara, chats with a couple who raided and finds out the details on what raiding is all about.

    We all know that EQ2 was designed to be a little more friendly towards the casual gamer than EQ. There are a lot of people out there who are grateful for this particular development. I know I'm one of them. Coming from a hard core rading guild in EQ, and having done my time in a hard core raiding guild in EQ2, I rejoice in the more laid back family oriented guild that I'm currently torturing.

  • It's a famous landmark and now you get to see it through the eyes of the Turbine crew. See the Brandywine Bridge here. and read the lore behind it.

    The Bridge of Stonebows, as the Brandywine Bridge was once called, was built originally by the Men of Arnor as a causeway across the Barandúin River on the Great East Road. When the founders of the Shire were granted their land by the king of Arthedain, the price was simple: to maintain and care for the Bridge so that travel into the West would never be impeded. The Hobbits of the Shire performed their duty, even long after the North-kingdom failed, and maintained the great stone bridge, denying none passage, Man, Elf, or Dwarf. Though the river's name was changed to the Brandywine and the bridge itself became the Brandywine Bridge, the Hobbits of the Shire continue to care for and keep watch on the Bridge.
