Still so excited about GU49
Things in EQ2 are starting to pick up again, which is always really fantastic. I have to admit, it was sort of fun to go read the Norrathian Homeshow forums (which I visit frequently for housing ideas, I can’t help it) and see a post about Beckett MOG and the house item given there. Made me feel all warm and tingly to be a part of that. I did have to deal with a little bit of drama last night but I’ve found the best solution to those sorts of incidences is just back off and don’t give the parties involved any more of a reason to be angry and grief like they had been. Some times people forget that these are games with other people behind them. A quick /ignore takes care of most things.
I know I’ve mentioned this a few times, but I am REALLY looking forward to the next game update. I already have plans and ideas on how to take advantage of being able to resize furniture items. First of all you know those books that don’t QUITE fit on your shelves? Well, that will take care of the issue. How great will it be to resize them to fit where ever you’d like them. Tired of items not being halfling sized? No problem – lets fix that. The best part is those cute little items that ARE halfling sized (I’m talking about that acorn chair reward from the void storm quests) will be able to be resized and used for everyone else.
I know it’s hard to see, but on the right hand side are two tables stacked on top of one another with food around each one as a little uhms.. display sort thing. Those tables are slightly too small though. Wouldn’t it be fantastic to be able to resize them so that the food fits properly? The entire bar is halfling sized (which is intentional, since this is Tipa’s bar) wouldn’t it be nice to resize it for an ogre?
I’m also really looking forward to the new quests in sinking sands – though I am a little worried about how over populated it’s going to get, if it’s anything like Everfrost. It should be a lot of fun though, people need new things to do. That’s the great thing about EverQuestII, is it’s ever evolving and changing gameplay.
Of course the biggest thing about the game update will be the guildhalls, but I’m not sure if Nostalgia will make it to level 30 in time. I’m going to work on writs today and try to inch Stargrace up to 40,000 faction with the Ironforge exchange. I believe she’s sitting at around 35,000 right now. Silhouette already has 40,000 faction with the Gorowyn tradeskill folks, and then of course I’d like to try to get max faction with the other crafting factions as well.
One thing that would be great – you can now work on the faction for cities of the same alignment for adventuring only though. So you can pick up writs for other factions as long as they’re not getting ready to lop your head off with a sword. It would be fantastic if this were also the case for the crafting factions. I’d love to be able to work both Gorown and Freeport for example. Ah well, maybe it will be something SOE will look into in the future.
