  • Noah Holmes Discusses the Deathfist Citadel Revamp

    The official site for EverQuest II has a post on it with this interesting look at the Deathfist Citadel revamp. Keep reading to hear from one of the designers!

    In regards to Deathfist, I went in and completely gutted all of the pre-existing work and looked at it as though it was a brand new dungeon, just handed to me by the art team. Since the Deathfist orcs are much more capable than a band of mindless undead, I wanted to try and keep the feel of an organized society.
