Pieces of Fate

Yet another obscure reference, this time to Game Update #53: Shards of Destiny (which will release in late September).

Here is what EQ2 Players had to say about it (EQ2 Players comments in bold, mine in italics):

EQII’s next Game Update, Shards of Destiny, is slated to go live in late September. We will be bringing some exciting new content to the world of Norrath with Shards of Destiny.

Erollisi Marr’s influence is felt once more in Norrath. Our players will be able to explore the Shard of Love and learn more of the popular goddess’ story.

No word yet whether it will feature attackable mobs, but one would assume so….

There will also be a new x4 dungeon to test your skills. Miragul’s Planar Shard will continue the story of the powerful mage.

Am I the only one that thinks that Miragul should, at some point, die permanently?

There are several other exciting additions coming with Shards of Destiny!

Auto-mentoring: Revisit content you may have missed!

No more having to 2-box to mentor down TSO instances.

Housing renovations: Enjoy more space to exercise your decorating creativity, or just more room to store your booty!

About time…I’ve been having to give stuff to alts just to make room.

Achievment System: Killed 100,000 undead? Now you’ll be able to track your accomplishments and earn nifty rewards.

Well…I guess that means I’ll have an excuse for heading to runnyeye to commit genocide…

Shader revamp: The changes to the shader system are ready! Enhanced graphics and more realisitic-looking shadows await.

Now if they could only fix zoning into T3 guild halls with a lot of items…

Well….That is all I have for now…

Until next time,
Necrotherian Lootsalot

    “At Fan Faire we announced that this upgrade would go live with Game Update 53 which is just around the corner. Unfortunately I’m here to let you know that we will be pushing this upgrade back to Game Update 54.”
