Tradeskill developer for EverQuest II
Emily Taylor (better known to the community as "Domino") was recently interviewed
by The Tairise Tribune. Anyone who has ever read the official EQII tradeskill forums
will more than likely have seen a post by Domino, or a reply to a player's question, or a hint about upcoming content and changes -- in truth, her level of interaction with the community is amazing, and it's nice to see people's feedback and suggestions being acknowledged by the person who calls the shots.
in the interview, Domino discusses her role with SOE and EQII
, working with her team on deadlines (such as the huge amount of new content required for Rise of Kunark
) and how working with gaming industry "celebrities" has been far more rewarding for her than meeting the Hollywood celebrities that she did in her former job. It also appears that she isn't above a little real-life tradeskilling too, as she mentions that she has recently been constructing Weighted Companion Cubes
inspired by Valve's hit game Portal
. Check out the full interview for more from Domino.
