Quite some time ago, Freeport underwent a huge transformation. The citadel that Lucan D’Lere resided in fell from the sky, and the landscape was changed. Then the entire zone itself was overhauled, getting rid of the smaller housing zones and adding new quests. When it went live I wasn’t actively playing, though I did peek in to see the changes. As such, I had never actually completed the Freeport Timeline nor did I know just how very involved it is. There’s an achievement for completing the timeline, as well as one for completing the Qeynos timeline – and a title if you complete both of them. I decided to give it a go, and I’m really glad I did.
Throughout the quest series you earn a lot of neat paintings (pictured above) that show off how Freeport has changed. You’ll also earn a lot of other house items, at level 95 each quest was worth a plat and some change, you get some gear (none was an upgrade as they seem to cap at level 90, but it was still neat), along with some very cool appearance gear including a pirate captain hat. My one issue is that you’re also given a lot of cloaks. Cloaks seem to be EQ2’s go-to quest reward lately. I get so many of them and I only ever use one, so I find that it’s a bit of overkill.
I had fun exploring the revamped city zones, although there IS a lot of running around and you probably want to space the quests out instead of doing the entire chain over the course of two days like I did. I also earned myself a neat title from the priest guild, and got to visit with Lucan D’Lere. I’m not sure if I can obtain the Qeynos quests seeing as I am from Freeport, but I’m going to try. If I can’t, at least I can always betray to Qeynos in order to do them!
As always, happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself.
