EQII Parkour

I sometimes check out EQII videos on YouTube and I came across a great one last night. The video, brought to you by the mysterious Ridiculously Cute Kitten Studios, features the insane antics of the Parkour Crew owning the rooftops of Freeport.



At first I didn't know what parkour even was, so if you're curious like me, check out the Wikipedia entry. I watched a few parkour videos and it's pretty amazing that the EQII one mimics the vibe so well.

You can call it an emergent meta-game if you want. It just looks like a lot of fun. And I think things like this add to the feeling that Norrath is a deep and "real" world.

I've always enjoyed playing around with the terrain in EQII, but I had no idea it could be taken to such extremes. I've already tried to do one of the insane jumps in the video and, while it did take me a long time to get it down, it is doable.

I'm off to log on and attempt to mimic some more of the parkour fun. I wonder if competing EQII parkour groups will arise and post their own videos. I hope so.

I've seen several jumping/climbing videos and screenshots. Usually they're linked from the Art forums or the Screenshot forums off the official boards.

Some of them, you really do wonder how they got up there. . .

One guy who posted a ton of screenies about his climbing does say that since you aren't intended to be able to get up on the roofs, they tend to be "incomplete" and easy to fall through, but it is possible to learn where the holes are over time and be able to avoid them.

The only thing I've ever done like this is to find the "hidden" SQ entrance from the northern part of QH -- and that only becuz I'd seen a video of someone doing it, so I just repeated what he did.

That's what its called? Hehe, amongst the first things I did was go wall-climbing in Freeport. The human/half-elf suburb has several crumbling walls with blocks sticking out that you can climb up, teasingly like there might be a hidden area up there, and there is, a little alcove, but nothing up there :)

Back in EQ1, it always seemed that (rp-type) trolls and (generally) bards could never stand still. Whenever we were camping mobs and there were a few idle seconds, I'd be trying to find a way to jump over/climb up/bounce between anything.

But I know what I'm going to be doing this weekend ;)
