EverQuest II Extended Live

The EverQuest II Website announces that EverQuest II Extended is now out of beta, offering a way to play Sony Online Entertainment's MMORPG sequel free-of-charge. Word is: "To celebrate the launch, EQ2X players can claim their free Staff of the Rising Phoenix from the in-game Marketplace on the Freeport server. The staff is an appearance-only item, depicting a phoenix engulfed in glowing flames, and will be available for a limited time only, so be sure to claim yours before 11:59 pm PDT on Sunday, October 3rd."

Ant, pretty sure you have to start a new toon on the Extended Live Sever, which I believe there is only one. There were many subscribers playing there when I tried it the first weekend. There were even some who payed to have one of their toon's transferred over.

As a former EQ2 player, who was thrilled to give it a try if only out of nostalgia, I found it an utter fail. All the new people they are trying to attract, can't use even Zone Chat for getting groups much less any other higher level Chat. Secondly they can NOT use the Marketplace, for buying or selling, period. This means that all those subs paying to have their 85 level toons transferred over who craft for example, can't get business from F2P players, only other Subs, which they can get on any other server.

Ok now comes to the good part, even if you pay the full monthly of $15 per month you still DON'T get all the normal benefits of being a Sub on any other server. I can't recall atm, but they withhold some of the Races or Classes even if you pay the full monthly.


Good Luck, becasue it sucks.
Acleacius, I never played EQ2 before though. I have Sony Station account from other games like EQ1, SW:G, etc.
