Everquest 2 Dragons

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.

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.
