Just saw this on the official site: EQOA Producer Letter Hello, It's been an exciting summer for EverQuest Online Adventures and there is more to come in the near future. In this Producer's Letter, we want to bring you up to date about exciting new features that are just around the corner. We'll also talk about some current events in the EQOA community and how we're working to make EQOA the best online gaming community.
Within this month, if all goes well, we are planning on releasing the EQOA Auction system. The Auction system is the perfect complement to player Trade Skills. You'll be able to sell items through auctions and bid against other players for anything people are selling, anywhere across Norrath! The auction system also allows you to search for items by race, class, level, equipment type and many other parameters. You can even set a "buy now" price for your auctions! The transfer of auctioned items is handled instantly by the game server. If you win an item, it is instantly transferred from the seller's bank account to your bank account. We're very excited about this new feature and we think it will add new depth to the game's economy.
Further ahead (after the Auction system) we are looking forward to the next two trade skills: Carpentry and Tailoring. These should add all-new avenues for character development and many great new items to the game.
Since the release of EQOA, the game community has continued to grow and flourish. The development team is very interested in fostering this trend. It's very important for us to create an environment where players can enjoy the game with their friends without unpleasant distractions. The development team has been working with our Customer Service department to develop stronger policies for dealing with community issues that EQOA players have reported to us. Over the next few weeks, you will see strong action taken to enforce our community policies. We want to thank the EQOA community for reporting their community issues to Customer Service and the development team.
The development of EverQuest Online Adventures: Frontiers is moving along very well. If you have been accepted to the public beta, you should expect to receive your beta disk within the next ten days. It's going to be an awesome time!
