Yeah, it's a way off given that ROK ain't even out yet. But I'm flipping a coin between Luclin and Velious and coming up Luclin. What do you reckon?

They should blow it up again, just for good measure.  That place was horrible, in my opinion. I'd love to see Velious again...but I'm interested in what they could do with Odus as well.

I'll say: 1. Odus: free expansion, 2. Velious: 5th extension, 3. different Planes: expansions to be bought one by one (I want only the one of my goddess Tunare, and want to raid neither ones), 4. Luclin: 6th extension, with level increased as only the most powerful has survived here (problem with easy raiding Planes then ...).

<p>From history of humans book: "The Cataclysms were of all types: earthquakes, flooding, and the inconceivable melting of Velious." there is also a painting: velious mourns which shows the melting of velious.</p><p>Well i prefer Odus anyway and hope it is alot more than a free expansion.</p>

I would think that Odus would be a distinct possibility for the next expansion after Kunark. Another possibility is some sort of Underfoot expansion.

Vyrance

After Kunark we'll probably end up with either: Odus, Velious, Subtunaria, or Stormhold.

<p>After two wicked huge expansions in EOF and ROK, Odus just isn't big enough to stand alone as an expansion.  It was a small land mass on the original EQ map.  I suppose it could have been greatly altered by the cataclysm and now be bigger, but it was freaking close to Qeynos in EQ1, so it seems like they would have found something huge just off the coast.  Unless there is a magical reason.  I think the idea above about Odus coming as a free expansion makes more sense.  Of course, if both the starting cities on Odus are turned into adventure zones, as seems likely based on dev comments about wanting two good cities, two evil cities, and a neutral (which they will have after ROK releases), that might increase the possibilities for Odus.</p><p>I would love to see a major expansion of Odus plus some other islands--an ocean based expansion.  True swashbuckling possibilities.  That could be really unique.</p><p>I think if Luclin comes back, it will be as bits and pieces that fell to the face of Norrath and formed new land masses <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p>

Since Velius melted away, perhaps they would release it as an entire underwater expansion pack?  The Tower of Frozen Shadow and Crystal Caverns revisited, but completly underwater...

Mirander_1
05-16-2007, 01:49 PM
For the next expansion, I see the following to be the most likely options: Odus The rest of Antonica An Ocean expansion the Underfoot As for Luclin, probably not.  At most, we might see some elements of Luclin managed to survive and escaped to Norrath (I'm still not convinced the Shissar are dead <img src="/smilies/283a16da79f3aa23fe1025c96295f04f.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> ).

<p>I'd love to see Luclin come back. And I think parts of it are still alive and in at least partial working order. It did go boom but there are still very large chunks of it up there. I think very posibly the Nexus is still there and functioning remember the little lore tid bit for EoF the Elf walking with his daughter felt the spires come back to life and saw a figure up there at the spires. It is my belive that the nexus works like a Satelite. Where when some one is ported they dont just go from say GFay to CL they go from Gfay to the nexus and the nexus shoots them back down to CL. They dont stop in Nexus but the nexus is the center point for wizard porting. And i dont believe wizards do this contiously i think its just something that happens when you port. Like people sending a televeision transmition to the other side of the world its broadcasted up to a satelite and it pointed back down at another reagon of the earth. </p><p>Odus i dont see it being enough to be a full expation I hardly ever went there in EQ1 and honestly wouldnt get me exited unless they had some really neat features to come with the expantion cuz odus it self doesnt instill exitement in me. (unless they gives the rest of the shattered lands with Odus now Id LOVE to see the rest of Antonica)</p><p> ROK is the most excited ive been about any EQ2 expantion it was my favorite place in EQ1 i'm just worried that the Iksar are going to get shafted. </p><p> Velious I'd love to see that Come back yeah it melted but remember when there were earthquakes and ground sinks magma pockets could have opend up and with the oceans going crazy could have pummeled Velious apart. But the Oceans have stilled that is how we Found Faydwer and how we are going to be finding Kunark. I've mentioned this before but with the waters stilled the earth stoped shifting maybe what ever made Velious melt has been coverd and now is in the process of refreezing into a possible differnt shaped contenant with some of the zones that weren't made of ice attached to it crystal cavens and the like. That would be very cool. And with the conteant Refreezing parts of Antonica could be rediscoverd after Velious and posibly have parts that were underwater posibly reconnect some of the old zones so we can actualy walk from Freeport to EL or Lavastorm instead of go on the dumb bells and boats. That would be amazeing I think if they did that would reshape what we know of the world agian and give us bigger areas to run around in before we have to click a silly bell. </p>

I'd be willing to bet that Odus will be free content. No one ever really went to Odus, so i don't believe it would be "nostalgic" enough for people to buy it as an expansion. (Yeah, okay .. you had fun there and good memories etc, etc.. But most people didn't.)

Well, there are areas in Velious like the Wakening Lands where plantlife is starting to appear; that's likely expanded.  And while the normal ice probably melted, I'm guessing the Velium is still frozen, leaving some of the whole icy wasteland thing.

Odus does have a lot of potential for an expansion...but I'm wondering how much nostalgic content could've survived with the events in the quotes from Vhalen. Opening the Underfoot to make it a larger expansion would be an awesome idea.  That door has been at the bottom of the Hole and never opened for the longest time... Did the Hole revamp happen before or after the timeline split?  I want to revisit Master Yael...

Vyrance
05-17-2007, 10:42 AM
the door at the bottom of the Hole leads to the Plane of the Underfoot, home of Brell Serilis and a few other Gods.  it does not lead to the Underfoot of Norrath.  places that seem to run into the Underfoot of Norrath are Kaladim and Neriak, for example.

<p>No one has convinced me yet that Odus could stand alone as an expansion.  Yes, it's true that they could develop new areas of the continent, I suppose--it was a pretty small continent, though, it was more of a glorified island.</p><p>In EQ1, I thought Erudin was an amazing city, and Paineel was pretty cool itself.  I always thought Toxxulia Forest was more of a missed opportunity--seemed like it wanted to be cool, but it was like Gfay's runt cousin with fog.  A new version of it would hopefully be cool--assuming it survived.  But I still think they would definitely have to add more to Odus in order to call it an expansion--more islands, or a drastically altered continent of Odus, etc.  EOF set a high mark, and seems to have worked well for SOE, based on Scott's interview on Allakhazam.  Kunark looks to be bigger than EOF, possibly.  Seems like they need something equivalent in scope for the following year, and Odus just doesn't feel like it.  You would have to add so much to it to make it work, and then I fear the expansion might lose its focus.  Still feels like a nice free update.  But hey, if that's where they go, it's not like I wouldn't be interested in seeing it again, and maybe they have great ideas on how to expand it and make it really interesting.</p>

<p>My thoughts:</p><p> Next: Odus (as an adventure pack) with the racial home of Erudites and another NEUTRAL city (like I am hoping the home of the Sarnak is) where all classes can start but not all races. I am positive the Erudites would not want any stinkin Kerrans in the city and would probably not care for Ogres, Trolls, and Iksar to be running amok either.</p><p>After Odus I would like to see Velious although it may not be possible since it melted. But they could do an ocean expansion where Velious once stood since Norrath is mostly Ocean now. I would *love* to see player owned boats kind of like the player owned starships in SWG. There could be huge ginormous ocean zone with lots of little islands that can only be reached by player owned transport or by paying a gnome at the docks some ridiculous fee. </p><p>As for Luclin... Hmmm I don't think I want to see that come back ever. </p><p>Nor do I want to see the Plane of Knowledge return although seeing the planes come back one at a time as adventure packs would be interesting.</p><p>I would like to see something Luclicn related as the next expansion after something Velious related. Not the moon itself coming back but perhaps a big chunk of it landed on Norrath and became another mini continent like DoF is. here is the controversial part though... Once this Luclin island (I will hereby refer to it as Lucland) is discovered the lore of the Beastlord would be rediscovered as well bringing the first new class to the game. Lucland also would bring a new starting city to the game where lots of Kerrans and aliens from Luclin (as NPCs) choose to live. </p>

<p>Yeah, technically, Kelethin is not a "Pure good" city. Halflings can't start there, and 2 neutral races can. The Sarnak city is *COMPLETELY* Neutral. Humans, Sarnak, Barbarians, Half Elves, Gnomes, Kerra, Erudites. Neriak is a *COMPLETELY* evil city. Dark Elves, Arasai, Iksar, Trolls, Ogres, Ratonga.</p><p>But then again. They're halflings. Not like anyone cares about them anyway.</p>

<p>Yes. "A trip down to the memory lane" is fun and interestingly nostalgic.</p><p>But I think they'll bring some brand-new playgrounds someday after all of these 'Old to new conversion' expansion packs. </p><p>(Then, after Luclin & Velious & Odus + Underfoot & Remnants of the old Antonica & Planes ,,, just too dim to predict right now. ) <img src="/smilies/8f7fb9dd46fb8ef86f81154a4feaada9.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p>

<p>In regards to the request for the link to the article that mentioned the starting cities, I read it in an article linked from the last Town Crier posting.  Here was the exact quote:</p><p>"Rise of Kunark represents the culmination of their plans to round out the newbie experience in EverQuest II. Hartsman described his goal as having two evil cities (which they'll have with the Neriak update), two good cities (which they already have) and one neutral city. The fifth piece of the puzzle snaps into place in Rise of Kunark with Timorous Deep. This is a place where Humans, Gnomes, Kerra, Half-Elves, Barbarians, Erudites and Sarnak can mingle in what Hartsman hopes will become EverQuest II's melting pot."</p><p>The link to the full article is:  <a href="http://eq2.warcry.com/news/view/71714-Gamer-Day-EverQuest-II-Look-Forward" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://eq2.warcry.com/news/view/717...II-Look-Forward</a></p><p>Of course, they could always change their minds, but this seems pretty definitive.  I'd just as soon see more cities myself, but I suppose it would spread the population out a lot.</p>
