(Nice work SOE, putting this live the same week as The Best WoW Patch Ever so nobody fucking notices it Facepalm ).

Quote
FEATURES

PRELUDE EVENT

    * Freeport has been rocked by the sudden destruction of Dethknell Citadel.  What was once an ever-present reminder of The Overlord’s power and will floating above the city has collapsed, and the tenuous peace held within the city by the watchful and ruthless Overlord has been obliterated. Something has obviously befallen Lucan D'Lere, the Overlord of Freeport! Start your investigation into these mysterious events in West Freeport by speaking with Sir Tallen Yevix.
    * The destruction and chaos in Freeport has not gone unnoticed by the Qeynosians, but they, too, have encountered some clandestine acts committed against their leaders, the royal house of Bayle.  Help Qeynos recover some stolen texts relating to the history of Enoxus and the Bayle bloodline by speaking with Royal Librarian Brinn in Qeynos Harbor.

BUG BASH

    * A great deal of effort was put forth in this update to fix as many old, annoying bugs as possible.  Players will notice many existing issues once thought perhaps forgotten are now fixed. All told, nearly 800 bugfixes are in found within GU54, which should help provide a much more polished and streamlined gameplay experience for existing content. As a result, players will notice the patch note section below is significantly longer than in updates past.

Fuck WoW. I'll actually hop on just to see the big floaty thing not so floaty.

I'm sure the wanna-be evil fucksticks are shitting their pants.

Tuned in, immediately get to watch cringey Ubisoft talking head offering her deepest sympathies to the families impacted by the Orlando shooting while flanked by a man in a giraffe suit and some sort of "horrifically garish neon costumes through the ages" exhibit or something.  We need to stop this fucking planet right now and sort some shit out. -Kail

I'm not playing any mmo right now, but damn if I don't want to log into EQ2 and check out this event. Good times. Though my SK would cheer, since he hated Freeport and moved to Neriak, for both gameplay and rp reasons.

Actually one of the reasons I initially quit, finding out that fallen gate was group-only and the whole fall of neriak thing was the most interesting thing in the game to me.

I don't know that it's worth a month's resub, but if you're going to play the game anyway I found the world event quest line regarding the fall of the Citadel (and the related quest line in Qeynos) to be fun little stories, even if they were predictable.  It's even possible to do the Freeport one with an 80'th level good character, although I haven't been able to do it with a 62.  I seriously doubt it's possible to do the Qeynos quest with an evil character, but who knows?

Yes, I know I'm paranoid, but am I paranoid enough?

I think we're planning to have some level 80s or so in my guild help clear out some of the guards in order to try doing the Qeynos storyline for the evils.  I didn't have any problems doing the FP line on my 80 dirge, but haven't tried it yet on my 68 monk.  Not sure how well FD is going to work on the epics that hang around the questgiver NPC.

I do have stealth abilities on one of my evils though, so maybe I'll give the Qeynos questline a shot soon and see if I can get a level 38 through it without dying too often.

For doing the Freeport quests with goodies, the two epics near the quest giver were completely avoidable by my Fae with a little scrambling over the wreckage plus one jump.  And all the guards were grey.  I don't know if non-floaters can make the necessary jump to get around the epic on the road though.  Fae floating got severely nerfed when they reworked the racial benefits  cry , but it may still have just a slightly longer range.  I can't tell for sure.

Evils doing the Qeynos line, on the other hand, will have to deal with the Fae princess' guards plus whatever is on the steps of Qeynos' Keep.
