EQ2- Take Flight!

EQ2's producer, SmokeJumper, has big plans for the game this year, if you haven't read the producer's letter check it out. The forums always seem to be buzzing with tidbits of information which the developers and SmokeJumper are discussing with players and that is a good thing in my eyes. I just wish they'd implement a quest helper system for every zone!! It does seem a lot of cool stuff is in the works for the game, it's getting a lot of love!

Multiple housing is about to hit the test servers and we'll be able to pop in there and take a peek at some of the newest prestige homes. Check out the link on The EQ2 wire, it shows just how the houses will link which is pretty interesting. I really like the idea and it is neat for travel if you have houses in different locations. It appears we'll have a housing limit of 10 per character but the limit may go up in time.

If you've been gone for awhile EQ2 has a new promotion, go back to Norrath and Take Flight. All characters can claim a flying mount in the marketplace. It last for twelve hours and you can claim another if that wears off, or before then. They are useable while the promotion is still going on. It was pretty nifty flying around. I am thinking of popping onto my inquisitor and getting her a few levels so she can access her flying quest, it just depends on how much time I have!

Speaking of time, this promotion gives players some free time! From April 14th at 9:00 am PDT until April 21st at 7:00 am PDT, all inactive accounts in good standing who logged in between 6-17-10 and 2-28-11 will be able to rejoin the adventure in Norrath! 

I don't have a flying mount on any of my characters, yet. My Inquisitor is just a few levels off so it was very neat to be able to fly in this game. I wish the level requirement wasn't so steep, perhaps in due time that may be changed.
