Everquest 2 Dragons

Filed under: Everquest 2 decorating — Tags: , , , , , , — mmoviking @ 3:05 pm

So I expanded my house limit from 800 items to 1000 items.  While I was at it I bought the all the dragon plushies from the Station Store too due to a holiday double cash deal.  With the added space I built some Dragon Stables for Beoromir’s Stronghold.  I know dragons have wings and might be able to fly over the tiny fences but oh well.  I also broke down and started an alternate character finally.  Beobo the Dwarf Paladin.  Beobo sticking with my Beowulf slash Lord of the Rings theme for character names.  He is quite enjoyable to play.  He can blast enemies from a distance with holy lightning and fight them toe to toe without having to backstab for maximum effectiveness, and he can heal!  So yeah he is a lot of fun to play so far.  The starting area of New Halas helps with keeping me entertained due to all the new quests.  I remember back in the day Everquest 1, every race started in thier own home city.  Now in EQ2 dwarves get to chose between starting in New Halas a barbarian city or Kelethin the elf city.  Hell in EQ1 the wood elves and the high elves each had a different city!  I understand the reasoning to have more players starting in the same area to group but I think I prefer the original Everquest way.

Merry Frostfell !

Filed under: Everquest 2 decorating — Tags: , , , , — mmoviking @ 2:18 am

I enjoyed the EQ2 Frostfell (Christmas) festivities.  Tons of quests with house item rewards and appearance items.  The Icy Keep instance was fun to figure out with Nindakin.  We ran it about a dozen times taking Neecrol through all the quests too.  From the Icy Keep tokens Beoromir was able to construct a Ice Fortress outside his Freeport Stronghold.  I saw a lodizal plushie on EQ2 Decorators website that I would love to get for Beoromir’s aquarium.  Looked like a decent long questline.  Beoromir’s Stronghold has reached its 800 items limit.  I’m tempted to buy the 200 item space expander from the Station Cash.  I think it’s about $12.  Probably worth it to me because I enjoy that part of the game.  Enjoy this screenshot of Beo in Frostfell gear including candy cane weapons and Neecrol breakdancing in the background near the Ice Fortress.  Mele Kalikimaka my friends!

Everquest 2 Player housing

Filed under: Everquest 2 decorating — Tags: , , , — mmoviking @ 10:01 pm

Everquest 2 has the best player housing in MMOs at this time, which I love.  Beoromir has a 6 room Stronghold that he can decorate with up to 800 items anyway I choose.  It doesn’t have certain slots you can place items like LOTRO has.  You can place everything anywhere you wish and you can adjust the size of the items anyway you want.  I adjusted all the furniture to a Barbarian size in Beo’s Stronghold.  The housing items in EQ2 can come from quests, trophies, player made items, Legends of Norrath card loot, or purchased from station cash.  Beoromir’s Stronghold has been a work in progress the past year, but it’s almost done.  I have plans for the winter festival items coming up soon, but after that it should be pretty much done.  I’m probably going to post a bunch of screenshots as a side page on the blog.  Here is a shot of Beoromir’s Bath.

Back from hiatus

Filed under: Everquest 2 decorating — Tags: , , , , , , , — mmoviking @ 11:50 pm

I’m back from hiatus due to moving to Kauai and all the things that needed to be done to make that happen.  I’ve been back in Norrath about a week now and with the help of The Einherjar, Beoromir earned his Fabled Brigand sword, Enervated Havoc, Blade of Treachery.  Which I mounted behind Beo’s desk.  It looks pretty awesome with purple sparklies and a rotating blade tip.  The nice thing about the Enervated is it gives your character a self buff with the effect of the sword.  That way when you upgrade to better swords, you still get the effect.  I wish they had that back in EQ1 in the day, that would of been nice.  Bravo on whoever came up with this at SOE.  Beo also finished his Dance of Metal rank 2 alternate advancement ability which should help his DPS even more.  That’s all for now.  I promise more posts soon.

Beoromir’s Stronghold

Filed under: Everquest 2 decorating — Tags: , , , , — mmoviking @ 10:54 pm

Beoromir purchased a six-bedroom stronghold in the City of Freeport.  He was living in a two-bedroom Neriak Inn before.  I still have a lot of work to do decorating the place but I have a couple of rooms close to being finished.  My pride and joy Beo’s Tavern is looking good.  Beo converted the basement into a barbarian tavern using the new Halas style counters, tables and benches, which look great.  Wine racks, kegs, steins, bar stools and stained glass make up the rest.  With a Beholder as the bartender.  I might add some more tapestries and other small changes but for the most part the Beo’s Tavern is open for buisness.  We don’t serve gnomes.
