Alas, the most powerful force in EQ isn't Kerafyrm,but the Sony(SOE) marketing machine(freaking Gnomes). Just when those prospective brand new EQ players thought they were going to be given some time to get their feet wet with EQ & the Titanium compendium for $19.99 plus subscription rate. Which i'm still wondering why Sony(SOE) stated they needed to raise subscription rates in 2005 because of gaming upkeep then guillotined half the servers. Don't hold your breath because Sony(SOE) has learned they can generate more revenue with expansion sales, every 3-6 months, so after Titanium's release in about a week wait about a month for Prophecy of Ro for $26.99-$29.99 plus subscription rate. So far of the listed PoR features i like the arrangement of buffs ability most of course since i mentioned it on another thread. Expect ingame functions only enabled with the expansion purchase since Sony(SOE) loves to subtlety coerce. Expect mostly catered higher level content since most of the withering population are veteran &/or multi-accounters. If PoR is released in Feb. i'm predicting another expansion in the Summer.
