  • Ever Wanted to Be A Guide? Now's Your Chance...

    Posted on the official site for EQ2 is a news item looking for those brave few who wish to become a Guide. If you like helping your fellow players then you will want to check this out...

    The last thing you remember was reaching out for Zuzzil the Enchanter's Wand, then darkness... You begin to awaken and feel somehow different. You look down to find...

    ...everything is normal. Wait, no...something is not right. My hands! I cannot move my hands! Nor my feet! Nothing! I cannot move anything! What is going on here? My eyes feel as if they are glass, yet I can still see. My lungs still function and my brain is still lucid. What has happened to me? Hmm...perhaps I am still dreaming. No, that cannot be since I feel the cool breeze of wind across my face and arms. "Hahaha! Another sorry adventurer to add to my collection! You'll make a fine addition to my garden, yes, a fine addition. Such an elegant pose and unique features. If I dare say so, you are my finest piece of art!" A piece of art? What does this mad man mean? Can it be true, am I nothing but a piece of art? My feet and legs do look different, almost grey and lifeless. I can barely strain to see my torso, yet from the corner of my eyes it also appears grey, almost...stone like. Oh gods, am I what I think I am? "Such a fine statue. I could not have commissioned a more perfect sculpture!"

    Ever wonder what happens next? Do you want to find out? If so the Guide Program is looking for more adventurers.

  • How Is EQ2 Faring? has published a state of the game article. How do you think EQ2 is doing? Read on to see how Gamespy feels...

    The original EverQuest is indisputably the grandpappy of MMOs as we know them today. It wasn't the first of its kind, and it was far from perfect, but there's no denying how pervasive its influence was. EverQuest II, on the other hand, entered the market at a very different time. It launched alongside the stiffest competition possible -- World of Warcraft -- but still garnered positive reviews, mostly due to its progressive, accessible gameplay, and rich, bustling, detail-rich world.

  • SOE Kicks Off A New Feature

    SOE started doing profiles of the real lives of EQ2 players. What better way to start it off than with our very own Coyote? If you've read his writing, now you can learn a little more about what makes him tick.

    What got you into gaming and what sort of games do you like the most? I started in pen and paper after picking up a Dragonlance book because of an Elmore painting. I've been hooked since. Anything fantasy. Dragons - hobbits, chicks in chainmail bikinis....

    Pirates, ninjas, vikings, robots, or other? Gaar! I ain't be justifyin' tha' silly question with no answer MATEY! YAAARRR!!

  • All hail the once and future content king...

    EQ2 might not have the mindblowing scrip numbers, but man can that SOE team churn out the added content. The "Fallen Dynasty" adventure pack, available by digital download, offers seven new Asian-themed zones and plenty more adventure for players from level 55-70.

    In The Fallen Dynasty, players journey to a secluded island with a dark past, inhabited by rival families and an ancient order of monks known as the Whistling Fist Clan. The forsaken city of Tanaan once thrived here until its people's lust for knowledge led them to their own destruction when they arrogantly challenged the mighty guardian of Zebuxoruk's secrets. Now, courageous adventurers are needed to drive back the bloodthirsty Pirates of Gunthak invading the village's shores, thirsty for conquest, lost wealth, and the mysterious power hidden beneath the island's tranquil surface.

    It's sure to wet your high-level Norrathian whistle while we all wait for retail expansion "Echoes of Faydwer" towards the end of this year. To see the "Fallen Dynasty" press release in it's entirety: click here

  • All the information you need packed into one tiny little space. Miracles of modern technology will never cease to amaze me.

    Developed in conjunction with SOE’s Taiwan studio, the recently announced Adventure Pack, The Fallen Dynasty™, promises to deliver the same downloadable story-rich content seen in the previously released The Bloodline Chronicles and The Splitpaw Saga, but this time with Asian influenced adventure zones, weapons, tradeskill rewards, as well as all new quests for the high level EverQuest II player.

    To prepare for the anticipated June 14th launch of The Fallen Dynasty, Design Supervisor Matt Higby, ventured to the SOE SOGA studios in Taiwan to meet the team, sync up the specs, and witness the progression of our first internationally produced Adventure Pack! In order to give a better understanding and background to this project, we interviewed Matt about his travels and experiences at SOGA. An avid photographer, Matt also provided some remarkable photos of his travels.

    You can find it right here.

  • No, this is not a report on fashion. (Yes, I thought it may have been.)

  • The Crier is here and as always, Ten Ton Hammer has a ton of content for your viewing pleasure.

    Town Crier!
    Hark! Be that the Town Crier I spy? He brings us tidings from the far reaches of Norrath's influence. Be they dismal, strange, or otherwise? Let us observe as he waxes eloquent about current affairs.

    # The Town Crier visited with Aggro Me, the one and only overnuker. He told stories of wealth and fortune…well not really, but he did share some enlightenment from his memoirs in "Good Morning Norrath".
    # In the far off land of Caster's Realm the Town Crier ran into familiar faces who were happy to discuss the recent activities, news, and even comedy. Bouvi shared the latest EQII Comic "Learning The Hard Way", Jethal told all about why we should " Keep The Range in Ranger", and Kendricke shared some never before seen "Profession Hats".
    # Ten Ton Hammers are fairly heavy to lug around all day and thankfully the Town Crier doesn't have to do that. So the Town Crier paid a visit to those that do wield the Ten Ton Hammer and found entertainment and enlightenment. Spending time with Coyote was great and he even shared with us how to "Win a Date with Coyotee Sharptongue". For those who seek more enlightenment the Town Crier advises you to check out the new and improved information in "The Splitpaw Saga Zone Guide", "Half Elf Racial Guide",and the "Human Racial Guide".

    You can visit the town crier here.
