Lets make the community come together to release some neat but pointless information and then basically give them the finger and then give them a date which doesn't match previously given dates. Bloody brilliant!

    OK, so I'm trying to figure out what the kobold in the painting he's referring to is.

    Does he mean this thing? I do know there were doubts about it being a Ratonga.

    This creature looks awfully similar to what kobold's would usually be depicted as.

    For example, a google image search of kobold gives this:

     

    However, this was labeled as Kobold in the old concept art:

     

    Could they have changed the kobold to a reptilian-like creature?

    How do you go about slowing it down to hear that?

    Yeah he's got to be talking about the one from the concept art people were trying to figure out.  You slowed it down too right?  what program did you use or how do you do that?  I want to hear it lol

    That last picture is obviously a gnoll. It was definitely mislabeled.

    If this game is not the most innovative game in the history of the genre no one will ever ever get hyped about a game ever again.

    For those of you who want to hear what he said, I slowed down the video and reuploaded it:

    LOL SOE's checking their fans Pavlovian response times. Ring the EQN bell and watch the fans slobber over themselves for less then a Kibble.

    I figured they'd be nice enough to give away something. I was still hoping for more of a "LOL f*****s" though.

     

    But really, now that I think about it there was something in there for everyone.

    I wonder if we can remove the blur on his mouth, so that we can read his lips.

    No the last picture is a Kobold - that's what kobolds look like in EQ1 now, been like that for many years actually.

    Also the creature in the picture is a *goblin* not kobold, shame that even a senior producer is clueless about it, and is giving wrong information in the video.

     

    Here's a screenshot from Velktor's Labyrinth (Eq1):

     

    Also here's an EQ1 Goblin:

    Not if you played the original EQ.  Looks like a Kobold to me.

    Kobolds in EQ1 are flat faced knuckle draggers just as you posted. That concept art is not, it is long snouted dog or hyena anthromorph, much closer to a traditional D&D gnoll and again reflected in EQ1,

    The creature in that picture is not a goblin, in either the D&D or EQ sense. Goblins do not have tails nor are they draconic or lizardlike. That is obviously a traditional D&D kobold which are small draconic creatures related to dragons.

    The EQ1 kobold looks like a bulldog while the EQN concept art looks like a hyena.

     yeah i was thinking that aswell but the pic looks just like EQ1 original kobolds, even the colour scheme and fur patterns match up quite well

    Here a gnaoll

    and a lizard man from EQ1 which is quite a bit similar to the little lizardy thing in the painting.

    added the gnoll and lizard man pics since poeple are talking bout gnoll and lizard like beings

    Edit: also a picture of a sarnark because there very familiar to the kobolds (lizardy tryope one) however these guys are rather taller (taller than humans)

    remember its a multi day event. so likely info released on each day certain parts at a time.

    This could very well describe the combat system!

    I agree, the black box video seems to be just to toss something out there - I wouldn't be surprised if they don't release a sketch until the 2nd either.
