Beastlords! BEASTLORDS! Sorry, but long-time Norrath junkies are somewhat excited by the upcoming appearance of the popular class in Sony Online Entertainment's
venerable EverQuest II
When the Age of Discovery
expansion debuts next month, pet-loving players will have a lot to look forward to, according to lead designer Akil "Lyndro
" Hooper. "One of our goals for Beastlords is to experiment with some new play styles. Beastlords have warders that they can tame, who work in combination with the Beastlord to create a new style of combat tactics. Beastlords have fewer buttons to press, and a more active and reactive playstyle than our other classes," Hooper explained in a new Q&A released yesterday.
Head to the official EQII
website for more of the discussion including the differences between warders and more specifics on combat.
