EverQuest
Letter From the Producer

EverQuest Producer Holly "Windstalker" Longdale updated us this afternoon about what's happening this month and beyond for EverQuest.

  • Some improvements are being made to Epic 1.0 quests (bottlenecks are being reduced -- details can be found in the latest Test Server patch notes).
  • Legends of Norrath loot will be a little more easier to come by (for the right price)
  • The progression server is a prominent topic (one that we know all about, thanks to Aristo's intricately detailed post earlier this week).
  • We have been introduced to the idea of "campaigns" (downloadable content to be released twice a year - the first of which expected this coming Fall). These are said to feature "about the same amount of content" as what would normally be seen in an annual expansion.

Players have raised numerous questions about this, of course. As of this posting, they haven't been answered (it is a Friday afternoon, after all; happy Friday, by the way!), but you can probably expect some answers in this EQ Forum thread in the coming week.

Guild Wars 2
The Scrying Pool: Necromancer's Dreadknight

The Scrying Pool is a Guild Wars 2 column where I simply ask what if? Nothing is off the table as I dive into possible features and future content, looking at what currently exists in Guild Wars 2 before I answer my own what if question with how I think the feature and content could be implemented.

This week we continue the speculation series covering the new specialization feature coming in Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns. Starting off, I had given my general speculation specialization before jumping into the profession specific speculations with Guardian’s Cleric followed by Engineer’s Mechanic and Elementalist’s Mage. This week I dive into speculation for another profession with Necromancer’s Dreadknight.

Greenlight Special: Izle and Monochroma

Hello once again, intrepid internet explorers. In my quest this week, I wanted to shake things up a bit and “go for the funny” which is something I pathetically chase in my day-to-day life. However, I found my initial search parameters of “funny” to lead me to some disturbing, albeit amusing games. Twitch chat was horrified, which is a feat unto itself. In any case, I was luckily handed one of the games this week, Izle, in a nice email from my Managing Editor. The other game, Monochroma, I discovered going through the annals of Greenlight history.
