Exploring War Like Worlds.

Planned for a beta launch on August 17th is a version of EQ2 gone free to play.

It will have its own server and many limitations compared to the full game.

Check out out these answers to questions on the membership matrix.

I like this idea as I did not get the time to play to sub to the full game even though I liked it. I can see myself resubbing to the full game even with this out if I got the time for it again. However this might let me try the game, and understand the game a bit better for when that occurs.

To be honest though, if you think you will really love eq2, I would not bother with this.

It has its own server, but its really limited compared to the p2p version. Less classes, no support, less races, less content, less spell tiers (so harder game), less bags etc etc. I’m not sure how fun or enjoyable the cut down version will be.

EQ2 isnt a easy game, nor one thats quick to learn, with all the restrictions, it might make something tough to get into, a complete turn off.

Many games advertise that as a feature?

No more mounted combat.
That’s it.
Course, it’s never that simple. My gut reaction is “WTF? I’m going to be hopping on and off my damn horse every time I have a fight?!”

Bonus xp weekend

The everquest 2 passport seems like a nice idea done probally in the wrong way.

I’d say it would be  more popular if the days were separated or if  you could used it in blocks of hours.

Biobreak has a good write up

“EQII Passport” is sort of a lite version of the EQ2 subscription: you pay $5 a month to get 3 days of game time.

I think my Kerra will go to East Freeport for the Erollisi Day festival. She is an evil character and the guild house is in freeport.

Erollisi day items are available.

Being new to a game always means wondering where do I go for the festivals.
However the eqtraders link above helps make that clear. I just need to pick which character will I get to one of the locations.

I had fun at the city festival (once I figured out what I had to do) and got some items for my kerras house.
