View Full Version : Deepwater Knights?

<DIV>Am I correct in assuming that the Deepwater Knights no longer exist in EQ2?</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Has anyone talked to any NPC who has any information on them?</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV>

<DIV>I havent seen any NPCs with information about them, but it doesnt stop my Erudite Paladin from carrying her family tradition on. I cant remember any Erudite even saying anything about Prexus (at least in the Qeynos area), though there is lots of talk of the Tranquil. </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>To me it seems like mostly all the paladins and clerics of Qeynos have been pushed into the Order of Life faction (I guess now the Celestial Watch). Except maybe the ones who follow Tunare.  Rodcet Nife seems to be pushed more than any deity by those people, but I would guess there are followers of other deity as well.  So I would assume they, being a rather small faction to begin with, were put into another larger faction when reaching Qeynos (like many other factions im sure).</DIV><p>Message Edited by Kamimura on <span class=date_text>01-20-2005</span> <span class=time_text>02:48 PM</span>

<P>Yes, I haven't heard anything about Prexus or the Deepwater Knights. I am only level 21 though, so I was hoping there may be more information in other lands. I also hope to follow in my ancestors' footsteps.</P>

Well, Odus is likely a continent to be discovered -- of course in 20 different parts, so you must pay for them -- anywho. Prexus, like all the other gods, are not talked about much as they are not part of the everyday Norrathian's beliefs, as it has been 500 years since they last contacted Norrathians.Other than that speculation, no, I haven't heard anything of the Deepwater Knights or Prexus (though I have heard many NPC's talking about how the gods forsake them).

<DIV>Prexus is represented in Freeport.  There is an exploration experience spot in the Sunken City.  The Sunken City is a lowbie fighting area off of Freeport.  The particular spot is a ruined statue or monument to Prexus I believe.  There are a bunch of undead blocking it.</DIV>

<DIV>Yes, it is a ruined shrine of Prexus.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Another thing I notice in Freeport.. While becoming a cleric you had to go into a threshing room to get beat on for a while. Well, several Gods were represented. Foci of War, Foci of Hate, Foci of Flame, Foci of Disease, Foci of Fear I think they all were. However, there was also a Foci of the Drowned, which the only deity I can think to put that with is Prexus.</DIV><p>Message Edited by Kamimura on <span class=date_text>01-20-2005</span> <span class=time_text>11:29 PM</span>

<DIV>According to the Erudite lore in freeport, the Erudites were visted by Quellious and told to reunite with the Heretics and put their differences aside.  They did this and jointly created a huge citadel in the Stonebrunt mountains where both factions lived together and spent their time studying and playing with wicked arcane magics.  It also mentions that the citadel housed devotional areas to Cazic Thule and Quellious, but no mention of Prexus.  I'd assume that since the Erudites were touched by Quellious and no longer lived near the ocean, they had completely abandoned their faith toward The Ocean Lord and the deepwater knights were disbanded.</DIV>

<DIV>Thanks You Ways, that's exactly the kind of info I was looking for. I am doing the History of the Erudite book now to see if I can find more information.</DIV>

<DIV>I thought I read somewhere that it was a temple devoted to all the Gods of the Erudites (so Prexus and Solusek Ro would be in there as well). I might be wrong though, cant remember where I saw that. </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>On the main eq2 page for the Erudite faith it says "An ancient order of paladins called the Deepwater Knights was devoted to Prexus, seeing the rise of the oceans as proof that their god will soon return." So im sure there must still be some around somewhere. </DIV>

For my character, I'm going to assume that he, along with everyone else on Antonica, has lost contact with whatever order of Deepwater Knights still exist, be they on whatever is left of Odus or wherever. Either way, he has decided to try to reform the Deepwater Knights and at least live his paladin life in honor of their legacy. At the least, the lack of any Deepwater Knights in game, makes for a good character bio <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />
