  • Morticus Talks About Lesser Faydark!

    The official site for EverQuest II has been updated with a Q & A that talks about Lesser Faydark.

    Can you tell us a bit about Lesser Faydark?

    Morticus: Well, Lesser Fay or LFay as it's called by some – is the smaller extension of the Faydark forest in the continent of Faydwer. Much has changed to the forest over the last four to five hundred years, which is easily noticeable with a quick look around. The first thing you will notice is that the zone is pretty much devoid of trees, but is now filled with huge towering mushrooms, twisted overgrowing vines and gigantic flowers.
