Aggro Me: Grab Your Umbrella of +4 AGI
Grab Your Umbrella of +4 AGI
The rain it raineth on the justAnd also on the unjust fella;But chiefly on the just, becauseThe unjust steals the just’s umbrella.-Charles Synge Christopher Bowen Well in EQII it has rained up until now only upon the unjust. The showers fall only in Freeport and not in Qeynos, regardless of the fact that Qeynos is situated in a grasslands area and Freeport is located in a desert-like environment.My first time in Freeport (don't worry it was a sabotage mission) I was stunned. "WTF?" I said in group chat. My group thought I had been discovered by a guard or gotten lost. They asked me what I was talking about it. "It rains here?"Turns out it does, and it's pretty cool looking too.I've had conversations with people who like Freeport better and they usually go like this:"Freeport is cooler looking.""Qeynos is prettier looking."
"The NPC's in Qeynos are ridiculously happy.""The NPC's in Freeport are nasty to you."
"Uh, we have a sewer we use for shortcuts.""So do we."
Note: Every city in a game with a fantasy setting is required by federal law to have a sewer dungeon."We have rain.""Uh...."Well, now the tides have turned and Qeynos will be getting weather effects of its own. Moorgard states that "Rain is in the forecast for Qeynos!"Is a weather effect a huge deal? No. But it's a nice, immersive touch. Some people are worried it will induce lag but I'm willing to wait and see.And don't worry, even on a rainy day in Qeynos it won't be too depressing. You'll still find plenty of super-happy NPC's to blow sunshine up your...er, wizard robe.
