Before anyone asks, yes, there are still updates to EQ2 – so what’s coming up? The producer’s letter goes into details on what we can expect this summer, including an update that is releasing August 10th, just around the corner. They are also going to be running a sort of ‘welcome back’ promotion, where if you’ve got an all access account you can obtain a 120 character boost. I do NOT suggest this for anyone actually returning to the game, but at least grab it and use it for an alt (which is exactly what I plan on doing). There will be bonus satchels if you’re questing in Reign of Shadows (the latest expansion) and are also an all access member, and they include things like currency.
There used to be an event called Days of Summer – which is being renamed this year to Panda, Panda, Panda! I’ve actually never participated in this before, so I’m looking forward to checking it out and seeing what everyone else is talking about when they mention it. Apparently it involves lots of .. everything. Catching your characters up, housing, that sort of stuff.
At the end of the letter there was also some sort of centaur hint, but we’ll just have to see what that is all about! I’m not sure that ‘excited’ is the right word to use, but I am certainly looking forward to seeing these events first hand. It feels comfortable to be playing, and I like that.
