Freeblood Vampire Race and Accessories Available

Written by Feldon on . Posted in Daybreak Cash

The Freeblood vampire race as well as premium accessories are now available on the StationCash Marketplace.

From EverQuest2.com:

The Freeblood race is now available on the Marketplace in EverQuest II and EverQuest II Extended.

You can watch a video of the Freeblood race over at Facebook.

To purchase the Freeblood race, look within the Race Packs section of the Marketplace and purchase the Unlock: Freeblood item to gain the basic Freeblood race. Then create a new Freeblood character at the character select screen, or change an existing character into a Freeblood with a Race Change Potion. The Unlock: Freeblood item is available for 2000SC.

When you make a Freeblood character, you’ll gain a whole host of new abilities, including Reveal Inner Self, which is the ability to reveal the inner demon within to your foes, and a racial passive ability that drains your enemy’s health to repair your own damage while you’re in combat. You also get a set of new unarmed combat animations to let you show your savage side during melee.

When you start your Freeblood character, you’ll be able to personalize your standard appearance, as well as your Inner Self illusion. Do this after initial customization by going to any barber NPC in the game. Simply turn on your Inner Self illusion, then purchase a “Shave and a Cut” item from the barber and you’ll be able to customize your alternate appearance.

Freeblood Accessories

Once you create a Freeblood character, you’ll find additional items available for purchase within the Character Pack category in the Marketplace. These three unique items are available only for Freebloods, and can be purchased individually, or you can buy all three in the Freeblood Accessory Pack. These items include the Freeblood Contract for 1500 Station Cash, the Cloud of Bats ability for 2500 SC, and Ferocity of the Freeblood for 500 SC. The Freeblood Accessory Pack containing all three items is available for 3000 SC.

The Freeblood Contract grants the bearer ownership of an exclusive Freeblood Lair Estate. The Cloud of Bats ability shapechanges the vampire into a cloud of bats, which increases out of combat speed by 65% and reduces the falling speed of the caster. Characters who go on to unlock flying mounts in the Destiny of Velious expansion will also be able to use this ability to fly. Ferocity of the Freeblood adds special effects to your new unarmed combat animations (see the video for a demonstration).

Freeblood accessory items can only be seen on the Marketplace by a character who is currently a Freeblood vampire. These items are NO-TRADE. Accesory items are available per character.

Players who earn the Freeblood race through the Velious Winter Rewards promotion will receive the Unlock: Freeblood ability on their account in February.

    I love how at the end of the video right in the middle the make sure you see the HUGE SC logo. So I think Sony’s new Logo is SC. Not SOE.

    My question then, is twofold:

    First: If we wait to get the Freeblood race free from the Velious Winter Rewards, can we still get the “add on” abilities at that time?

    Second: Do we have to PAY for the add-on abilities no matter what, or do we get them for free with the Velious Winter Rewards?

    Granting a race the ability that can be used in combat, when they took all combat damage abilities away from all other races AND granting them the ability to fly in the next expansion (When Fae and Arasai have been clamoring for it and were told “No.” at Fan Faire (though nothing is set in stone yet.)) but ONLY making it available for Station Cash . . . /sigh

    Welcome to the introduction of the NEWEST server mergers! All Live serves will be merged with Extended. Have fun!

    FreEQ2 Realms. You’re in OUR store, now!

    The SC logo being so prominent seemed odd to me too.

    Overall I think these rewards should have an ingame route to obtain them if they are not being given to subscribers (I treat the race as a collectors edition style reward – its one time only for current subscribers).

    And the “your in our store now” comment did make me laugh 🙂

    Well, on the plus side, at least they used the EQ2 logo instead of the EQ2X logo 😀

    The part that sucks IMHO is the $30 you pay for the add-INS that are tied to the one toon you buy them on. Unlocked extras for the race…maybe I’d get it, but not like it is. Just a bit too greedy for my wallet.
