  • Travel advisaries for the greater Maj'Dul area...

    Among the citizens of Maj'Dul, the turbulent city at the heart of EverQuest 2's last retail expansion, live three factons warring for control of the city. Players can enter the fray by choosing allegiance to one of them. RadarX expounds on the Maj'Dul city guide by explaining how faction works and what the benefits are.

    Within the city of Maj'Dul lies three factions: Truth, Coin, and Blades. Each of these factions wrestle for dominance, and exercises control over certain sections of town. The Court of Blades is the local militant force which guards the city against threats (similar to the Freeport Militia for you EQ1 Players). The Court of Truth represents local law enforcement and they appreciate you not littering. Finally, the Court of Coin represent the mercantile and banking interests of the city.

    It's like a CIA Factbook entry, except for gamers... and stuff. Read the updated EverQuest 2 factions guide at our very own EQ2 community site.

  • Turn in loot, help your guild!
    In EverQuest 2, Status Loot is one way for players to help their guild gain status along with pocketing some for themselves. Kill a mob, get a status item and turn it into the correct faction. Slide gives us an updated guide to these special items which includes "Tier 7" expansion status loot.

    Status Loot items are relics that Freeport and Qeynos factions will purchase for a small amount of money and status which goes toward a players personal status pool and guild experience. Each specific faction will only buy a status item related to their guild. They can be randomly picked up off of dead creatures throughout the world of Norrath. There are many variations of status loot such as who will take them and how much factions will give you for turning them in.

    Let all of your status item questions be answered here.

  • Good News Everyone! For those of you who have been dying to beat the peanuts out of the good/ evil side you now have your chance. SOE has a new development update explaining the PVP system that is coming with their new expansion Kingdom of Sky.

    As you may already know, Player-versus-Player combat is coming to EverQuest II! It is currently planned to launch simultaneously with Kingdom of Sky, the second EQII expansion. PvP will take place on new PvP-ruleset servers named after famous dragons in Norrath. Everyone will have the opportunity to start fresh on a PvP server and be a part of the escalated conflict between Freeport and Qeynos.

    Hmm.. now I'm pondering whether or not I should restart my account and suck at PVP in two games at once.

  • Smed has a new blog available for your viewing pleasure.

    John Smedley ("Smed"), president of Sony Online Entertainment, kicks off the new SOE company blog with his thoughts on the PC gaming industry as a whole, as well as PC Gamer's recent decision to stop accepting ads from unsanctioned online game auction sites. The blog will feature insight and commentary on the video game industry from a more personal perspective from multiple SOE contributors.

    You can read the blog, and subscribe to it for updates, at blog.station.sony.com

    Oh sweet IRONY! The latest and greatest is Smedley praising PC Gamer for their move to take secondary market sales ads off of the mag. Why go through IGE when you can just spend your money at the Station Exchange?

  • Think all MMO gamers demographically exist somewhere between college and kids?
    You might be surprised, especially since the word veteran in "veteran gamer" doesn't usually refer to the 50-plus set! TTH's own Patrick "Troon" Connoy puts hands to keyboard to describe his introduction to and enjoyment of EverQuest 2. That is, as a proud member of a little-known (but steadily growing) gaming demographic!

    MMO games are lots of fun, they’re entertaining and addictive, no matter what your age level is! In fact, SOE and the other publishers are probably missing out on a very large hidden market opportunity by not directly targeting us senior, or, in my case, “almost” senior citizens. We are a “massively” large group, with improvements in healthcare, growing larger in size every day. The AARP boasts 35 million paying members, more than the population of Australia or Canada. After retirement, we have more time on our hands than we know what to do with. We are always looking for ways to keep our minds sharp and trying to figure out these new fangled computers. And, best of all, all of our friends are dying off, so we need the social interaction that MMOG’s provide!!

    Though we're still working on the large print edition, click here to check out the rest of this very engaging, tongue-in-cheek article!

  • Time to start camping the emails again. SOE has announced that they've opened Beta Registration for their upcoming expansion Kingdom of Sky

    We are pleased to announce that registration for the Kingdom of Sky and PvP beta tests is now open! This is your chance to help us test the second EverQuest II expansion pack, as well as the highly anticipated addition of Player-versus-Player combat in EQII.

    High above the mightiest peaks of Norrath a secret world exists. This Overrealm, made up of enormous islands of land suspended in the air, is home to aviaks and creatures never-before seen, but it is the splintered and warring dragons who rule it.

    This expansion is intended for characters level 55 and higher, although we will be accepting some lower-level characters into beta to help test our new player-versus-player ruleset. If you only wish to participate in the PvP beta, please use this registration system as well--Registering for the KoS beta will automatically enroll you in the PvP beta test.

    You can register Here Make sure you're signed into your station account when you do it.

    Our wonderously fabulous TTH EverQuest 2 site. Where all the information is frosty.

  • MMORGP.com has a Dofus review.

    Following the tutorial, players are dumped into the world with very little direction as to what to do or where to go next. There are a few minor quests they can accomplish at the start, but they feel very shallow for the most part, and often involve a simple delivery or kill quest.

    That is not to say that the world players enter is not a pretty one. The Dofus world is undoubtedly beautiful in its own way. If you are looking for a game with cutting edge graphics, stay far away from this game. Everything is done with simple 2-dimensional sprites, which are animated well enough. The environments have a beautiful, hand-drawn look to them, and the game certainly has an anime theme and inspiration behind it. Some may enjoy this simplicity, while others may be put off by it, but there is no denying it all looks great.

    Are you Dofus material?
