<p>I don't follow the game news all that closely, but I was wondering where the Adventure Packs have gone?  I believe they promised an expansion once a year and adventure packs to fill in between.  Which was working out to be 1 expansion and 2 adventure packs per year.</p><p>Have they made any announcements for future adventure packs?</p>

they scraped the idea in favor of free stuff, like unrest and neriak.

I wish that they would do what WoW (I hate when I refer to WoW) did and add a Harder raid instance. Not now since the new expansion is coming out...but after the expansion comes out.

I dont see why they couldn't just put a nice Mythical Item on the main end-boss of a expansion...Venril Sathir?

My problem with Adventure packs was that not everyone would have them, so sometimes getting a group much less a raid together to finishe the end content was next to impossible. as it stands I might or might not be able to finish the Mara Questline until 80... You know Mara would have seen a LOT more action if you could buy a house there.

I have it unlocked for my account, but I have never bought it and I don't have Station Access. Not that I disagree with what you said, it could/can indeed sometimes be a problem to gather people to do things in the Adventure packs, because not all bought them.

I will cross my fingers and hope it stays unlocked for me <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />

This was scraped almost Imediatly as they could not get 2 adventure packs out between expaintions, then to top it off they moved with EoF from 2 expantions a year to 1 expaintion a year, and then desided that Big Free content(neriak/Unrest) was better then Huge Content for a Price(Adventure Packs), as a way to keep people between the Giagantic Addtions for a Price(expaintion packs).

<p>I have purchased all the expansions and adventure packs to date and in spite of that I would like to see SOE make the existing Adventure packs free content upgrades to all players. I have things in both Splitpaw and Fallen Dynasty that are almost impossible to work on without a lot of pre-planning simply due to the number of people who have them.</p>

I thought the Adventure Packs were included when I bought EOF to start in EQ2. I guess they are not. But still plenty of content left for me to get through.

I thought I was flagged for all of them too with EoF, but it was just the bloodline chronicles.

<p>In fact, removal of the adventure packs is a WAY better and enjoyable sign to see.</p><p>Back when the Gamasutra interviewed Scott, he said EoF was their experimentation ground and</p><p>RoK will be the first to fully take advantage of one-year expansion cycle. <img src="/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />   </p>

Good idea! Make the packs free for all, and give some rewards in-game for those who have bought them. What I find sad is those who don't want to pay more can't group with me in these zones.

<p>I just liked the idea of new content being added in between expansion packs so if they give it away with free updates or charge a small fee for Adv Packs...it's all the same to me.</p>

<p>Yeah a few bucks is just SO much to pay for an adventure pack.  Guess we all live in poverty these days.</p>

Splitpaw for free transportation, Mara if you're going to raid it or if you want the tradeskiller stuff I guess, but you're really not likely to use either of them enough to justify it unless those two things are good enough for you. These days I'd pay for Runnyeye before I paid for Bloodline Chronicles, and I sure as hell wouldn't pay for Runnyeye <img src="/smilies/69934afc394145350659cd7add244ca9.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> BLC would make for an excellent Live Update revamp though. Give it the DFC treatment and open it up for free at the same time, add in a new level 70/80 version of the raid zone that's not shite.

I would like to see them go free as well. I had them with All Access and it was impossible to ever find a group for anything because so few people had them. And since I no longer have All Access, I no longer have access either.
