Aside from the tale of a kitten Sony Online Entertainment has adopted, one important Landmark related update is that a new island will test builders’ imaginations The best builders will be given the privilege of having their creations immortalized in Everquest Next and Norrathian history.

    Definitely Dwarves first.. I don't like that they turned the Kerran into Tony the Tiger.

    To be fair, Kerran's always looked awkward and ridiculous anyways...  Just muscular humans with fur and  a tigers mouth..

    I disagree - yes they have more detail and polygons in EQN, but the end result is a goofy looking WoW character with ridiculous proportions.

    I like the new Kerrans. I love the look of EQN so far. I just wish they would quit screwing around with Landmark. I'm just not interested in a building game and they seem so focused on it right now.

    Landmark is the testbed for EQN. Everything going into EQN will be tested first in Landmark, so you can't say they're screwing around.

    Yes, it is a testing ground and an experiment.   This is called innovation!  Don't worry about them spending too much time.  They do want to get the game at least playable/useable at least, but I wouldn't think they are wasting time on it.  What they do here will carry over to EQN as far as the world environment and how you interact with it.

    I hope they transfer the "awesome performance"...

    Assuming the quotes mean sarcasm, it's weird. I keep hearing about bad performance, it must be poorly optimized for certain systems? But with mine it runs 40 to 60 fps on ultra settings. So I guess I just can't see what people are complaining about.

    Can't get over the feeling that the kitten is solely for Georgeson to eat. He looks like a bond villain.

    I think the Kerrans in EQ1 looked much cooler than the disney lion we have in EQN.

    I agree, I think the Kerrans look really cool.

    If you take it as it is and not go into the "nitty gritty" and the accuracy of the proportions or anatomy then i think the style of the character is nice. IMO better then the previous iterations of this race.

    nah, I love Kerrans in EQ1 and EQ2, they look terribly ugly on EQN and I even play WoW... 

    I just don't understand why they look like goofy disney lions on EQN. 

    So, it will most likely be the one time I don't create a Kerran... Vah Shirs FTW!
