Wow... great work, awesome list! I quit before TSO came out, and I am definitely giving EQ2 another try. PST to Aarinak on Everfrost
Shadows enhanced 06/16/09
A new shadow system has been implemented for the game.
This new system uses your graphics card to build the shadows rather than your CPU and it comes with a few extras as well.
Using the shadow mapping technique and 3.0 Shaders we’re now able to cast softer shadows, fade shadows, and cast dynamic shadows from trees, plants, feathers, and more! The new system fixes a few shadowing glitches found in certain armor sets and self-shadowing and depending on your computer’s settings may also significantly improve performance.

It's the new hate meter
100 = bad
xD got it xD
- new exp bar slider
- can lower your level without mentoring
You can now put adventure experience into the achievement pool from level 10 and higher by adjusting the slider in the achievement window.
* A number of mysterious erudites have set up in Qeynos, Freeport, Neriak, Gorowyn, and Kelethin. Any player level 20 or higher can speak to them and for a small fee temporarily lower their adventuring level.
* This works similarly to mentoring except:o You do not need a mentoring target.o You can only choose levels in increments of 5 (10, 15, 20, etc).o You do not receive the bonuses granted from mentoring other players (currently you receive a very large bonus to AA gain while mentoring another player, this is not granted by the Chronomagic system). * The chronomagic will last until cancelled (right-click on your nameplate or /unmentor). Once cancelled, you must return to any Timeless Chronomage to reactivate the effect Additionally, 37 new missions have been added that work similar to The Shadow Odyssey’s daily doubles. They task players with slaying various bosses within zones of all levels throughout Norrath And, of course, these missions reward players with an array of exciting new items!
I've been back for a week or two, and I'm really glad I came, but I'm trying to figure out if the game's a little too easy solo, or I've just gotten better at gaming. My 61 conjuror is now able to take on mobs as high as 68, and win handily. Is that normal, or is he just better tweaked than I realized? I know it's off the inital topic. Sorry. I like the original post though, and I definitely vote /sticky.
There...I said something; now be quiet while I kill this.
I wish they kept the access requirements for certain instances. That was fun getting the key. It reminded me of old EQ.
Also, that makes ppl have to group if they want in to that instance, and the instance is for grouping anyway so it is a good intro for ppl.
I really hope EQNext has all these quests and the housing they have in EQ1 as well as BEASTLORDS!!!
Dungeon Finder since 10/6/2011
links for the launcher
added with Age of Discovery expansion
- Beastlords (25th class)
- Dungeon Makerhttp://eq2.zam.com/wiki/Dungeon_Maker_%28EQ2%29
not a feature but worth documenting
*Every* character that was created before 12/06/2011 at 12:01 am will be grandfathered in without race or class restriction. This means that regardless of your membership level, you will be able to play any character created before 12/6 without paying for race- or class-pack unlocks.
adding this info for whomever is unsure about what content is available to new players
EQ2 gives all players 6 expansions for free
Base game through Sundered Frontier : 90 levels of content
2 expansions are not included
Destiny of Velious - $20.00 on Station Store, and not needed unless you are level 86+
Age of Discovery - $40.00 but this has no content, AOD added Beastlord class and mercenaries
9th expansion is due November 2012 and will hopefully decrease the price of AOD
