<DIV>An awesome story, great graphics.  The FAQ does very little to explain how to actually obtain the monkey, and I for one, am anxious to assure that mine is reserved ASAP!</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>The monkey might actually be the key to getting my boyfriend to play!!  I am so excited!!!</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Great job all, WONDERFUL music, great presentation.  FAQ could use a little work though. =)</DIV>

Hmmm...the monkey appears to be for French and German versions only.  Is that the case?  Not complaining if it is....we've got plenty of US only stuff <img src="/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />...Just don't want to get my hopes up if it's out of reach for me. <div></div>

<div></div>The pet monkey is also for the English version of the game. I'll talk to the web folks to get the FAQ altered appropriately as well as ensure that the instruction page gets up (It should be available at <a href="http://www.everquest2.com/monkey" target="_blank">http://www.everquest2.com/monkey</a> when it is up). <div></div>

I just asked my local store if they get Desert of Falmes, whit the pre-order stuff. The anwser was, we are getting the Desert of Flames, but we don't know if we get the pre-order stuff whit them. So is there any thing speciel they have to do to be sure to get that? It's just if I have to use them as I have the last 6 years, or if I have to order from some place on the net. The shop is in Denmark, if thats makes a differences. <div></div>

<DIV>Not to nitpick, but one thing caught my eye in the FAQ:</DIV> <DIV><EM>Desert of Flames will add over 30 new creature types to the world of Norrath, including genies, sphinxes, mummies, and harpies. You'll also encounter familiar foes from the original EverQuest, like crocodiles, spectres, and, of course, sand giants.</EM></DIV> <DIV><EM></EM> </DIV> <DIV>While your definition of genie and mine may be different (Efreetis?), I can assure you that mummies were all over EQ1 (Unrest, NRo, SRo, Oasis, Befallen, most any static undead camp in overland zones, ect), Harpies were the source of some of the best druid armor in the game for a while (Plane of Fear) and there were two sphinxes in Rathe Mountains. Might want to have your guys change that a touch... unless they meant EQ2 instead of 1. <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></DIV>

<P>Im mad.</P> <P>I live in Norway (thats in Europe btw) and asked my local EB Games store about pre-ordering Desert of Flames. The answer was : Nope. That must be a US release only. I have no date for it.</P> <P>Now reading I only get the monkey by preordering it. I then asked in the chat and a Moderator said the release is world wide.</P> <P>So who is right? What can I do? When is Desert of Flames availabul for us in Europe?</P> <P>Please answer as I will show the answer to the guys in the shop. =)</P>

I have been ringing ebgames to pre-order here in Australia and it hasnt come up on their computers until today!! 26 Aug !  However they have no information on it, apart from being able to pre-order the game which seems to be the same as walking into the shop on the day of release and purchasing it (pre-order just ensures that the item is in stock for yourself on the day of release).    Im hoping that it does have the monkey with the pack when I eventually go to pick it up from the store on the day! <div></div>

Apparently you get a monkey for each character you have on your account not just one character like the dragon was.
