Sorry I missed this blog last week. There have been some changes happening in Norrath...changes I am announcing to you today! There are now two Community Managers covering all things Norrath (EverQuest, EverQuest II, Legends of Norrath, and whatever comes "next"). It is now me and Amnerys.
Also, have you heard about Player Direct? You may remember me sharing some videos from Jethal Silverwing in my last blog. Well, if you're a video maker, here's a way for you to get your game videos featured on our official channels, like the EverQuest II YouTube Channel! Here is our first Player Direct video, "The Othmirs of Velious":
Have you checked out the patch notes for our post-Scars launch? We had three this past week (May 2, May 3, and May 7).
We also recently published some player-made tutorial videos on our official YouTube channel! These videos were made by community member Jethal Silverwing. This wiki even gets a shout out!
Here are the first three videos in the tutorial series that Jethal created. Check them out, and let us know what you think! Also, are there any pages on the wiki where these videos could be a helpful addition? Share your thoughts.
I hope you are enjoying Cobalt Scar and Siren's Grotto (update those pages, will ya?!) which were released this week with Scars of the Awakened. If you haven't seen it yet, take a look at the official trailer!
In addition to all of the amazing new content that was released yesterday, today also marks the return of the City Festival to Freeport! The festival and the Aether Races will be here until May 7th.
I also wanted to point out a cool page here on the wiki -- Easter Eggs! This discussion recently popped up again on the EQ2 forums, and it's been a lot of fun reading everyone's favorite finds in the game. Do you have some? Make sure you add them!
And the last tidbit of the week...I have my first in game item! In the Community Lounge, you can now click on a bottle in the bar area to receive "Dexella's Drink of Delight (Alcoholic)." I'll make sure to always have some of these in my bags, so if you see me in game, feel free to ask for a sip!
