EverQuest’s Newest Progression Server: Coirnav

It's that time again! EverQuest recently announced their newest progression server. The details of this progression server are only slightly different from the previous iterations.

  • Content unlocks every 12 weeks until Gates of Discord
  • Post GoD, level cap raising expansions happen every 12 and non cap raising happen every 8 weeks
  • Experience is slower than Ragefire/ Lockjaw / Agnarr and closer to Phinigel post-exp boost. Translation: Decently slow but not painful
  • Raids are instanced
  • One character per physical computer

Now to answer the question many of you have already asked...

I don't know.

I'm debating.

I'd say I'm evenly split 50/50 on whether or not I will play on Coirnav. If I do, I'm playing a Cleric. But I don't know if I have it in me to grind in Unrest and Guk again through the pre-Kunark era. Perhaps not this soon.

I have until March 16, 2018 when Coirnav progression server launches.

Dragon Quest Builders on Switch Tomorrow

If you own a Switch and want to take my word on another great builder game, I highly recommend you check out Dragon Quest Builders.

DQB comes out on Switch tomorrow and it’ll be $40 which is cheaper than the $60 it was on PS4 (yet still worth it then too).

Although it has no multiplayer, it’s a great game about building up a kingdom and defending it from bad guys. There’s lots of Minecraft meets plenty of other builder games in this one.

Give it a shot and let me know what you think! I have the Switch version on my birthday list (February 15th) and will share my adventures and lots on the Switch version here soon.

Mario Kart is Nintendo’s Next Mobile Move

I think mobile gaming continues to have a strong future as a defined space which is why I’m always interested in seeing who is going to make the next coolest advancement in the mobile gaming space.

If anyone has the ability to come out of left field, it’s Nintendo.

This next idea isn’t really weird, but perhaps it’s a neat and logical step for the company’s mobile offering. Mark Kart is coming to smartphones. What a perfect idea.
