Today the 18th EQ expansion goes live, Veil of Alaris, and I’m REALLY excited about it. First of all kudos to SOE for putting forth the dedication to keeping this game going so many years down the road. There are a lot of great features coming with the expansion, and I think it will help update the game quite a bit.
Maximum level increased to 95.
New alternate advancements
Features a brand new continent, hidden behind a veil of mist
12 new zones as well as new content such as quests, loot, monsters and raids
New guild halls located in guild neighborhoods
Revamp of the hotbars; 12 buttons per bar
Ability to link items and clickies directly to hotbar including from inside bags!
Customizable guild ranks
I’m excited about the level cap increase, and looking forward to exploring the new zones on both my enchanter and my necromancer (both who are at the current cap of 90). The fact that hotbars will FINALLY have 12 buttons per bar is a big deal to me, and the idea that clickies will be able to be directly linked is amazing, especially since there are just so dang many of them.
What are you most excited about? Let me know in comments! Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself.
