    Default kunark ascending

    The current expansion, kunark ascending, is one of the smallest expansions that I can recall. They have added only one overland zone that has very poor travel access. it almost seems like something they scrapped while making rise of kunark. They did however add a large assortment of instances and raids that are sure to please the casual and hardcore fan alike.

    The ascension system is a great idea and i like how it has been implemented. Ascending to a more god like status is the logical next step for the game as a whole. If you love lore, this is the expansion for you. They have recently added a public quest dragon that seems like it could be a fun time. though im guessing it is more of a pickup raid level of challenge.

    I really wish i still had time to raid and group because this expansion seems as if it could be one of the better ones. Good luck to those who still play. Let us followers know how the raiding goes because i have a feeling this year will be full of great moments.

    Cool, I didn't realize we still had any SOE employees with accounts here.
    It's only weird if it doesn't work.

    It's a Facebook game now.

    - daily key quests for infusers and myth gear on RNG
    - daily zone quests for tokens
    - semi-hourly PQs for different tokens (with zones you can't join once they're full and become invite-only)
    - time gated progression where you have to log in daily to claim a scroll from an npc and do nonsenical grind
    - non-existant adept or better spell quality drops for ascended classes (I assume they're from ultra-rare keys or T3 raids)
    - rares spawn in pre-defined locations once / day
    - horrid deity point grind that will take 10+ years to complete in 1 branch

    game is now a bare minimum required so it's able to serve as a market platform

    Apparently no expansion planned for 2 years.

    an expansion is already in the works for next year. also more content is planned in the near future. spell scroll droos have been added.

    new epic 2.0 quests habe been added.

    what reason is there to complain about public raids that have a chance to give people useful items as well as give a little raiding experience to the masses?

    The Epic 2.0, is that the raid-version of the Heroic one?

    No I think they came out with a whole new epic. It happened after I quit playing, so I can't be sure, but I think it was an epic like series of quests, but every class had the same quest. If I'm wrong, I'm sure someone will set us straight.

    I don't even think it was a weapon. This is not to be confused with the epic crafting cloak.
