    THE ULTIMATE NEW PLAYER STARTING ZONE
    Since the explosion of Luclin almost 50 years ago, chunks of the moon have been falling to Norrath. One of these pieces came down upon Velious and sheered off part of the ice clad continent and pushed it away. Those lost on the wayward isle were seemingly lost to the world...
    A Farseas Trader vessel awaits to transport travelers from Norrath to the waiting shore of New Halas from the Steppes and Everfrost. Dangers and rewards await those who are willing to step into the icy unknown of Halas.

    New premium designed content from level 1-20. A unique starting zone unlike anything available in EQII. Ideal for both new players and alt-characters.
    Progress through Norrath in a whole new way through the Story Teller UI Guide. A visual adventure journal that displays your exploration.
    New and improved character progression featuring new creatures and quests experienced through the Golden Path.

    THE ICY KEEP AND UNDERFOOT DEPTHS RAID DUNGEON ADDITIONS!
    The Icy Keep: Retribution (Level 80-90)

    An all-new raid zone, enter the lair of E'ci the demi goddess of ice. Get past her minions and reap the rewards.
    Long ago before the cataclysms and before the gods left Norrath, E'ci, the demi-goddess of ice left in the possession of her Ice Maidens one ice dragon egg. The Maidens kept their promise until a Frostfoot slave managed to escape. The Frostfoot goblins sent a goblin by the name of Snarf recruit adventurers in order to make an attack on the Icy Keep and free their brothers.
    Underfoot Depths, The Hole Raid Zone (Level 80-90)
    This may possibly be the hardest encounter to date, and is only for the most well-equipped and experienced!
    The bonds that were pulling Odus into the Void have been weakened, strengthening the Underfoot's hold on Odus. Angered at the near-destruction of the entire existence of the Underfoot, Master Yael chooses to strike back, and allows the mighty door to the Vault of Living Stone to be opened, so that his armies of elementals can flood out into the Hole once again. Their intent is to protect the Underfoot by any means necessary, even if it means wiping out every living creature on Odus to do so. With the power of an entire plane behind him, Master Yael and his minions could prove to be the greatest threat Odus has ever faced.




    ADDITIONAL FEATURES:

    Its a kitten. So yes it has full controls, but it will not obey anything you tell it to do. Most likely if you tell it to attack it will lay on your keyboard. If you tell it to stay, it will walk under your feet and trip you.
    It's only weird if it doesn't work.

    I just got a new kitten. It doesn't ever stop crying for some reason. Maybe I should feed it sometime.

    Pretty sure you still need to buy the pet, you don't get it for free. It's just available for a limited time.

    My understanding is, it's a StationCash pet that will be free for 3 days. Part of a larger initiative.

    In Muslim lore, the cat is honored for saving Mohammad from an attack by a fierce snake. Here it is believed the “M” marking on the forehead of many tabby cats is the mark of the prophet (”M” for Mohammad).

    In Norse legend the cat is depicted drawing the chariot of their fertility goddess, Freyja, and therefore the cat is thought of as a blessing upon newborns and a good omen for those increasing their family ranks.

    In ancient Egypt cats were sacred and were even depicted on the head of their lunar goddess, Bastet which was worshipped by the ancient Egyptians. In her honor, cats were even mummified along with mice for them to eat.

    Cats themselves are quite resourceful and tend to give us messages of change, flexibility of adaptability. Often, when a cat makes an uncommon appearance in our lives it is a message for us to shake up our habitual routines and make some fresh changes in our lives, as well as be more flexible in our thinking.

    Cats can also be quite aloof, and this too is often a message for us to distance ourselves from people or situations. Sometimes the best cure for a problem is to step away from it - the cat inherently realizes this, and we would be wise to recognize this need as well.

    Lastly, the cat animal symbolism is about mystery. Unfortunately, its unpredictability has given the cat a bad name in some areas of folk lore, specifically witchcraft. When, in actuality, this is an asset that can be harnessed by us humans.

    Sometimes displaying very strange behavior and antics, you can never really pin a cat down. Simply put, the cat animal symbolism is synonymous with creativity and psychic power because of its sometimes unorthodox & “mysterious” behavior. This is also reflected in the Tarot deck as we see the cat in the Queen of Wands card. The good news is, this mystery is a message to us that we have the power over illusion. Cat animal symbolism reminds us to not fall prey to false beliefs, to not be a fool out of ignorance and derive understanding from our own internal wisdom. The cat beckons us to realize that when we turn within to our own hearts, minds and souls, and trust in ourselves we will always be shown the truth of matters.

    Socrates says in the Republic that people who take the sun-lit world of the senses to be good and real are living pitifully in a den of evil and ignorance. Socrates admits that few climb out of the den, or cave of ignorance, and those who do, not only have a terrible struggle to attain the heights, but when they go back down for a visit or to help other people up, they find themselves objects of scorn and ridicule.
