I'd like to see some people's opinions about raising Kunark.This is a purely theoretical thread and it wont happen anytime soon, and this isnt a useless petition to sign to get something done, I just want to see people's opinions.I loved Kunark when it came out in EQ1, such an original history with a wonderful adventuring landscape with truely unique landmarks. Anyone remember the 'windmill' in Lake of Ill Omen?

Why raise it? Think of all the cool underwater dungeons that could be made there <img src="/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />

Keep in mind, one of the various loading screens, you know the ones that show all the various concept art and a few in-game paintings, is a line of huge iksar statues, that looks very much like Kunark. This hasn't been seen in game yet (unless it is a high guild level merchant purchase). There is also concept art for Quellious - in a game of withdrawn gods.This game is still just begining.Just wait. I can't see how you could even doubt Kunark won't be included in the future.

<DIV>I don't believe Kunark is totally underwater either. All that the lore states is that the Lake of Ill Omen flooded its banks and swallowed up Cabalis.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>It is interesting that the Drakota were servants of the Ring of Scale (in Kunark) and are now seemingly on their own, so that could be used to say that Kunark is no more, if there is no Ring of Scale to control their servile underlings...but then even the Drakota have to have nesting areas, which have not been discovered yet, so there yet could be a part of the Kunark landmass where they return to.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Kunark has been subjected to a meteor bombardment in its past (ie Burning Woods) and even though the devastation was immense, the land itself survived. Agreed, it was probaby no where near the destruction caused by the Shattering.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>There's a lot of rich lore and history of old Kunark. I doubt very seriously that the dev's will willingly just discard such a rich canvas in which to work with.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV>

<DIV>to reply to yur question</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>perhaps earth elementals could be summoned and bound into an area (city sized) and used as a foundation for a city (or you could use them to build walls to [expletive ninja'd by Faarbot] an area off that you could then drain.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Perhaps a city could be made to 'float' in air or on water with or without the ability to move and then this could be used as a staging post.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>You can also employ 10000s of gnomes to carry some mud/rocks from the mountains in the discovered lands and drop it at kunark eventually building the land up enough <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV>
