It's all about the dragons.
You just can't get more quintessential fantasy than dragons, and EverQuest II's
newest expansion is all about dragons. Sure, there are goblins and bow-wielding healers as well, but you can't miss that the focus of Tears of Veeshan
is on those massive fire-breathing beasts. From dragons attacking Qeynos and Freeport to the evil dragon arch-enemy bent on destroying all time and space to the dragon afterlife, it is
all about the dragons. Heck, even the new AAs are from dragons! So it's safe to say if you aren't a really a fan of wyverns in all their forms (be they live or dead!), you might want to skip this expansion. If, however, you love them in all their scaly glory, you've got plenty to look forward to.
While waiting for ToV
to take flight on live servers, I got to tour the highlights of the expansion with Producer Holly Longdale
, Creative Director Akil Hooper
, and Game Designer Carlos Mora
. And from them I learned a few interesting new tidbits about EQII's
10th expansion. Want to know how you, too, can get Qho killed? I thought that might get your attention.
