Live blog from Fan Faire with q&a on EverQuest II.

Q: crusader gear with INT. DFC armor worse than master crafted. Can it be reworked?
A: ask me later

Q: crafters wanting to reset their adventure class?
Rothgar: we have been talking about this. Considering.

Q: monster npc masks?
A: it was taken out of eq1 because of griefing. not sure for eq2. This type of stuff is fun though.

Q: self mentor item?
A: no because it is exploity

Q: appearance slots for mounts?
Rothgar: we would love to do something here and more progression with mounts. Just have to find time.
Georgeson: YES
Rothgar: guess I know what I’m doing when I get home.

Q: class change potion?
A: No plans.

Q: LON boosters become heirloom not attunable?
A: we can talk about it

Q: if we have 6 toons can we get 60% xp bonus?
A: we cqn look into it. If you are crazy enough to get 6 90’s.

Q: fix call of the veteran?
A: this item has caused all kinds of problems for us. We know it needs some love.

Q: exile shared bank? (hollering from audience)
A: we probably won’t have a good answer today. But we can talk about it.

Q: why are crusaders so OP?
A: crusader and fighter balance are ongoing. We are adjusting guardians next. Tune into class balance tomorrow.

Q: share items between accounts? We will pay money.
Rothgar: we want to do this. Have to talk to other depts. We don’t want your money. We want your love.

Q: can we have a training dummy for healers? So healers can practice cure curse and healing.
Rothgar: we might be able to do this. We could do like a sad looking diseased dude.

Q: can we reduce amount of brawler in raids?
Q: can we do something about raid looting
A: we will look into ideas. As for brawler loot, that’s RNG. (audience outcry) (our monk throws his gear away instead of mending!)

Q: thanks for fixing fury class. And can we have a tinkered flash bomb tinkered?
Domino: that sounds kind of violent.

Q: sky blade skiff?
A: access through portals in s qeynos and s Freeport. Can’t do 2 houses on 1 character.
A: to exit, you can use the exit or jump off the side to go to a random zone. Including Veeshan’s Peak. 🙂

Q: optimize for graphics cards?
A: definitely. We just did the flora upgrade which is an 85% performance boost.

Q: why did you nerf mystic/fury mythical?
A: there was a mechanical problem with a percentage because an addition problem. The mystic mythical is a full heal full power. With jesters cap you could maintain that for 20% of the time.

Q: crit scales against mobs but there seem to be bugs because 100% isn’t 100%.
A: probably a bug. Looking into it.

Q: if cure curse is cast but not needed can it just act like it was resisted?
A: can look into it.

Q: auto attack bar and click to cure?
Rothgar: looking into it. Hopefully not too soon.

Q: if paladins can’t crit on heal anymore why can healers crit on spells?
A: so you are asking why warriors need healers? Just because it was broken for years we still need to fix it. you can still do a lot of self heals.

Q: too many quest items.
georgeson: we know there are too many mount whistles, quest items. We want to do something.

Q: too many appearance items
Rothgar: I’d like to come up with some solution for storing appearance items. Like a wardrobe in your house or crates that take 1 slot.

Q about free to play on all servers.
Georgeson: there are too many people who don’t want powerful items in the marketplace on live servers. Attitudes change but right now we are being conservative and putting up a fence. It’s an experiment. We know folks are worried about losing players on subscription servers. So many people will be trying free to play that even if a small percent choose e subscription servers instead it will be more than you guys are getting now.

Q: lower barriers to entry on guild halls and status?

Q: can we see some way to not have to start over on test copy when it is wiped? Guilds and guild halls take time to set up.

Q: did most of the classes becoming neutral have to do with f2p? This is disruptive for
A: no. We wanted to do this before. Just like allowing good ratongas.
(lots of arguing)
A: we give you the option to role play it how you want.

Q: why lose 14 day trial?
A: most players we get are returning players. Free trial is bringing very few players. Etc. We think the % of players who choose the subscription service based on the advertising ilk be more than the free trial. And also having a free trial is confusing along with free to play.

Q: chat channel colors beyond /10 ?
A: should be easy to do. Will look at it.

Q: daily adorning quest for tinkering?
Domino: tinkering doesn’t have the same material costs. No plans at this time.

Q: arena pet system hooking up to battlegrounds?
A: we want to improve this system but nit hooking to battlegrounds.

Q: bards and enchanters needed per raid?
A: we are always investigating. We have seen successful raid guilds with 8 support classes and some with just 3.

Q: arrow levels? ranger vs assassin dps?
A: see mechanics panel. Arrow levels tweak and mechanics changes to ranged weapons for rangers.

END Panel

      I’m sorry you think so little of someone who creates a crafter and realizes later they didn’t think very hard about the adventure class. I think it’s the same as any other request like this which have come true.

    You can now reset your crafting class. Why shouldn’t you be able to do it the other way around?

    Can you ask about Pve to Pvp transfers please 🙂

    So… we should trust them to explain the differences and benefits of EQII Live vs. EQ2X so that some will actually choose to spend $40 on EQII Live. But…

    “And also having a free trial is confusing along with free to play.”

    They admit to not having the skill to pull of describing the difference in a 14 day trial on EQII Live and EQ2X? This does not inspire trust. 🙁

    paladin crit answer sounds like a dodge question more then a real answer.

    Now, I must see the answer to this and class balancing!

    The bard and enchanter answer is as bad or worse then the paladin crit heals answer.

    paladin heal crit answer sounded like he was saying the person asking the question was a moron lol. And he was a moron. just because it’s been broken for a long time doesn’t justify keeping it.

    in addition INQ have been broke in terms of PVP/dps for 2 expansions now. Does this mean we need to nerf them as well? I believe SOE can find better solutions then swinging the dreaded nerf bat.
