    Though I am looking forward to this . I can't agree with your statement since development has been going on for so long and still no end in sight

    I like the grey box area. It wouldn't bother me if the entire game was like that.

    In case anyone was wondering, teleporting is a class specific skill for wizards and druids.

    Wizard:
    Order of the Gatewalkers

    Epic Skill. Wizards have the opportunity to prove themselves worthy of joining the Order of the Gatewalkers, consisting of Wizards who have mastered the power to travel through the Gateways that exist on Terminus. This prestigious order of Wizards has maintained a steady watch over these Gateways for ages, guarding their secrets and protecting them from destruction. The worthy Wizards who join this Order are expected to do the same.

    Druid:
    Wandering Stones

    Explorers have noted the presence of ancient, iridescent stones that stand within shrines hidden amid the groves and wilds of Terminus. These stones have come to be known as “Wandering Stones” and are seething with Druidic magic. Because of this, it is rumored that Druids are somehow able to attune to these Wandering Stones and travel between them. And perhaps there is even more to these stones than most realize...

    I wonder how they will challenge the idea that players will cap out in the very first month.I really do not think they even thought about it in the design at all.

    If players are level 30 in 2-3 days,they have another 28 days at 2 levels a day and will be 80+.This is why these designs fail so badly.

    I still worry about the game after only one month becomes a 24/7 end game grind and the entire rest of the game is a fast distant memory.

    On a side note,in that video i see what looks like a lot of simple architecture,a lot of rectangles.

    Another time-wasting video.  Here's a brief synopsis and my impression.

    First, the show a teaser of an incomplete new website.  This took up the first 5 minutes of the video.  Possibly an important step for VR, but doesn't help sell the game.  Feel the magic of navigating a website for the first time!  Followed by a lengthy explanation of the website.

    The second actual imagery (not talking heads) shows cinematic views of a zone, with a lot of discussion of why the zone was relocated in the zone.  (To make the world seem bigger).  This was a compilation of video images that have already been done, mashed together.  About halfway through the overly-long discussion, the compilation repeats. 

    At around the 20 minute mark, the video drops back to the safe (and incredibly boring) talking-heads format for the remainder of the video.  Nothing to see here, so I didn't stick around much.

    This entire video had the feel of a report to senior management or a big money investor, presented by developers who didn't want to be involved.  Their lack of passion seems to want to smack me in the face, at times.

    Still, Pantheon seems to be slogging along, development-wise and the images are nice enough.  There was no sign of the animation improvements that the OP boasted of.  No characters on the screen, and no characters doing things were shown.

    Summary: if you're hoping to see actual images of work completed, you won't find it here.  If you're hanging on every word of these developers, there might be something interesting buried in the chatter.

    I'm wondering why I watched this in the first place.

    Thanks so much for taking one for the team. I hate wasting time watching videos, especially those in a talking heads format.

    So a graphically improved Everquest. That isn't necessarily, I hope they can garner enough players to stay afloat.

    Getting enough long-term players to meet the accountant's expectations is a major challenge for any game with persistence.  I'm sure the experience of a new game will draw people in; the real question is will they stay.  VR/Pantheon has yet to start with that challenge.

    It's not a graphiclly improved EQ1. The team has shown they are making a modern MMO with modern systems. Pantheon is designed with a old school idea that classes hold a place in the team that's needed. Not the current model where every class can be replaced by any class in a team.

    this is the only MMO I still have any hope or interest in... there's just -nothing- else out there...
