You need lore for everything?

Here's an excuse: a wizard did it.

It's EaionQ2 FTW!

I like the wings just waiting for more options.

Having a way to personalize them like when creating a fae/arasai would be awesome.

You get it, you get it EXACTLY, it is all about the SC shop now, the lore, menaingless, the other bugs and problems in the game can take a backseat but when something is recognized as being wrong with the SC garb like this they will immediately get the artwork team on it and it will be fixed quickly, quite often with the very next hotfix.

Wow, this doesn't look stupid at all.  What's next in store for the future of EQ2? Corvettes as mounts?

I agree with Xisin on this fully. I think they're awesome wings, but it makes no sense to me. Regardless, I can see why some people are excited about it. I just think actual flight makes sense with Fae and Arasai... randomly gained wings just.... what?

So all the other appearance wings that go into cloak slots make perfect sense, but the idea that some wizard enchanted a pair of those so they will actually fly is completely outside the realm of possibility?

I sorta understood the complaints about the squirrels not appearing anywhere on Norrath, but we've had people running around with fake wings for years now.  Combining them with an improved "flying carpet" enchantment seems a logical, even obvious, next step.

I'm agreeing with you, Mages and other classes in EQ1 had some levitation spells, that and the Eye of Zomm are missing among other things from mages.

i can perfectly see some Mage coming up with this method of flight, as par of his or her experiments into true levitation and selling the idea to the Far Seas trading Company (aka SC)

I like to think of it more as "I chopped off the wings of some poor pegasus and enchanted those to work".

*snerks* That works too.  Hence my suggestion of a pair of prismatic bat wings dropping from Kerafyrm whenever we finally get to face him.

The Fae/Arasi plot to infiltrate and conquor the world is nearing it's climax! "One of us... one of ussssss...." /cackle

Or maybe we're getting ready for the next expansion, EverQuest II: Ming the Merciless!  "Second wave... DIIIIIIIIIVE!"

Dang it... now I want to watch Flash Gordon again.....

This is /facepalm awesome....

I never would have thought wings like this would be added to EQ2! You guys/gals at SOE really just go out there and "get'r done", eh. That's something to be proud of.

Thanks for the wings!

Nice idea, the cost is holding me back though.....even when I consider "If I get them with my Illusionist would get two pair for the price of one".

 Just my own 2 cp's worth: I am very selective about what I purchase from the SC store; when I saw these, the visual appeal and the concept behind using them did not appeal to me in the least. I'll just stick with my flying mount and be all the more happier for it. Thanks for reading SOE.

Somebody write up a playerbook on the lore for these wings SMILEY

"Thus I traveled down the cookie road a chip of chocolate fell down from a tree.  I picked it up and ate at thee and after that I could fly...."

Powerful chocolate chips SMILEY

Or how about...

"As I was walking down the nek road I got hungry and decided to eat a shroom..."

Now that individual wings have been introduced to the game, it is time to make Fae & Arasai wings actually work and let those races fly.

They get to fly. there's a quest already in, and thier ability to fly without a 'mount' is probably what allowed this wings to be possible in the first place.

So the fae/arasai (sp) who have to wait till lvl 85/86 then read the lore and follow the traditions of their ancestors, and who have to spend about an hour or so, earning their wings...

now get to see some human or whomever is not fae/arasai....just go and buy them?

I don't think so.

They don't need lore or a storyline as long as there is money to be made. It's realistic to assume that the majority of players, especially the ones lured in by F2P, will never know or care about roleplaying or the Norrath story arc. So they'll snap these up no matter how little sense they make.

What I mean is that they should be able to fly at level 1 like it's a racial ability.

we need new lore for winged "Planars race (Celestials) and Styxians (Hellspawns)" from other sphere of domains.

yes, i agreed with few folks concerning the price of wings, it's too high. that is insane so that is avoidable to buy.

it make SOE very greedy and that days are now numbered, the end is coming but when?

i can only afford monthly sub, but spending for 100 bucks? i am trying to save for my car, home can often feel like prison when dont have a car, specialty living in small town that dont have city buses.

No, they should not. Everyone, even those who buy these wings off the marketplace, have to wait til 85 to be able to actually fly; there is absolutely no reason for arasai / fae to be able to at level 1. Also, arasai / fae simply have to do a quest to use theirs, these cost money -- so that complaint also holds no water.

For those who keep complaining about lore, according to lore fae / arasai wings could not support flight, only hovering. They changed it due to customers badgering them for it, same goes for actual wing mounts -- there is NO difference. And lore is easily created for anything; those claiming "so now humans etc suddenly sprouted wings?" -- no, these are mounts, not a part of the person, that appear to be attached when in use.
