Kinya, webmaster of the Polish multi-game fansite Babagra, has posted a summary and notes of the second EQ2 Insider webcast which was held last Wednesday.

What happen recently in EQ2:
– weekly updates;
– dreadscale maw – new raid;
– high keep contested;
– June promotion Gear Up, Level UP;
– heroic characters are on sale;
– discount on expansion if bought in June;
– new Loyalty items added to MarketPlace.

Team is focused mostly on the things which are coming to EQ2:
– fabled Deathtoll (around 20 July);
– big unnamed event in July;
– new challenge duo coming in August;
– lore and legends for Aerakyns (June/ July).

Ethereals and Artifacts – current items will be available until mid of July then comes another set of items: weapons.
Not all the Artifacts were discovered so far on all servers. There is around only 15 of them in game currently (11 servers x 4 artifacts = 44)

June Dev Picks (from 10:30): Magic Kingdom by Sairalindie on Antonia Bayle and Meta’s Enchanted Island Tours by Metamarra on Butcherblock.

Collectors edition ToV winners (selected from ppl watching stream): Psycha, Ladylove4, DonRipper

New Dressable NPC Actors called by Kaitheel “Annimanequins” (from 24:00).
You can choose what player race you want it to be, then customize it similar to when you create a toon.
You are able to give them single animation like “boggle”, “giggle”, “sit” when someone comes close to them.
You will be able also to give them some text so when someone will approach them they will see the text.

Those NPC will be either craftable or by Loyalty points.

RAPID FIRE Q&A with Kyle “Kander” Vallee and Akil “Lyndro” Hooper (from 34:00)

Are those babies on the back of the spiderbear?
No. It is just a part of the spidearbear.
