EverQuest II: New Exclusive Q&A

StraddenStradden Managing EditorHalifax, NSPosts: 6,696Member

MMORPG.com is pleased to present a new Q&A from our friends over at Sony Online Entertainment's EverQuest II:

 




MMORPG.com: What kind of racial traits can we look forward to with the Fae race?

Jared Sweatt: Slow-fall, movement speed increase, power increase, and Fae Fire are the most likely candidates.

MMORPG.com: Since there is no new level cap for adventuring or tradeskilling, willwe see upgrades in Armor and weapons from Xegonite?

Ben Skelly: We’re probably not going to be seeing any major changes to what we currently have for Xegonite weapons/armor. What we will be seeing in the future is increasing their potential through the adornment system.

The adornment system will allow for further enhancements to these items.

You can read the whole article here.

Cheers,

    hey

    do they have pre generated answers they read from because two different EQ2 Developers gave the same answer.









    MMORPG.com:The raid content on Faydark, how does it flow progressionally? Howdoes it compare to DoF or KoS?
    Jared Sweatt:

    There will be raids in EoF that are more difficult than anything that has been seen so far. There will also be a few raids that are easier. Not all of the raids in the expansion are geared toward level 70 players in top end gear, but those who are will find their fair share of new challenges.

    People who have to create conspiracy and hate threads to further a cause lacks in intellectual comprehension of diversity.

    What kind of sweeping game design changes can we expect in the near future?

    Heres what should be asked:

    MMORPG.com: "What will your next great plan to screw over  your customers be?"

    MMORPG.com: "When are you planning to make EQ2 fun?"

    MMORPG.com: "How do you plan to repair your reputation as a MMO company after the persistant release of badly coded, buggy and content lacking games. How do you plan to earn your customers trust after freaquent acts of disregard showing that you as a company dont give a shit about your customers."

    MMORPG.com: "What great "enhancement" plans will SoE be pushing on Vanguard in a hope to make it "better" but by inadvertedly making it infinately worse?"

    MMORPG.com: "When will you stop claiming yourselves 'Worldwide leader in massively multiplayer online games'? When the majority if MMO gamers refuse to subscribe to your games as a protest to your ill conduct.


    MMORPG.com: "When will SoE be sacking Smedly?"

    Thank you!

    Best Regards,

    what do you think your next major online game will be?

    MMORPG.com: "What will your next great plan to screw over  your customers be?"

    Are you referring to the SWG development team here? I dont remember the EQ2 development team 'screwing anyone over'. If your talking about SWG you probably need to post on the SWG board, this is EQ2, different development team.

    MMORPG.com: "When are you planning to make EQ2 fun?"

    They made it fun since launch, I have played MMO's for many years and still enjoy the EQ2 content. You personally may not enjoy it, in which case, unsubscribe and play one of the hundred other MMO's out there.

    MMORPG.com: "How do you plan to repair your reputation as a MMO company after the persistant release of badly coded, buggy and content lacking games. How do you plan to earn your customers trust after freaquent acts of disregard showing that you as a company dont give a shit about your customers."

    Which bad and buggy code is this? Again I have played this since launch and dont remember seeing any of this buggy code, unless you are referring to the original memory leak, which was eventually fixed, but actually didnt do anything to effect game play. They did have to reboot the servers once per day in the beginning, during which time they also applied new content via patches, but this was seen as a bonus, and much better than other companies who patch once per week, if your lucky.


    MMORPG.com: "What great "enhancement" plans will SoE be pushing on Vanguard in a hope to make it "better" but by inadvertedly making it infinately worse?"

    SOE is PUBLISHING Vanguard, not developing it, they have no development options in their contract. You may wish to go to the Vanguard forums where the CEO Brad McQuaid has posted confirming this to the fans of that game. But again, this is the EQ2 forums and the EQ2 Dev team have nothing to do with games being published by their employers SOE.

    MMORPG.com: "When will you stop claiming yourselves 'Worldwide leader in massively multiplayer online games'? When the majority if MMO gamers refuse to subscribe to your games as a protest to your ill conduct.

    By the majority do you mean the WoW fan base? This is the majority of the MMO fan base, and your correct, they do not subscribe to games like EQ2, as they are subscribed to Warcraft. Do you want to play with these people in games like EQ2? If you miss being with them you could always try WoW, I believe there is even a free trial to download. I presume you "refuse to purchase an SOE game" out of some protest you feel your having about something that someone who worked for the company did about 3-4 years ago, but I'm pretty sure if you didnt post about it no one would notice.

    MMORPG.com: "When will SoE be sacking Smedly?"

    I think Smedly is the cleaner, and its a bit harsh to ask for him to be sacked. You could email the SOE President, John SmedlEY and explain what the cleaner has done to upset you so much, I believe he oftern responds to intelligent emails.

    Once again, this is the EQ2 forum. For people who play EQ2. If you dont like EQ2, dont play it. Just unsubscribe, and stop posting about it. Its quite simple. And if your gripe is about another game, published by the company who also publish EQ2, or any other game you happen to have felt so deeply hurt by, you should post it on the relevant forum.

    I am a bit surprised by the rankings on this site.  Ive played pretty much every major release mmorpg, and EQ2, (yes even in its current form) is the worst mmorpg i've played.  It just doesn't feel anything like a world, and the graphics / art style is very inconsistant.  What is this expansion going to add other then some gay race and more raid content?
