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.

OrbusVR Shows How Far VR MMOs Still Have to Go

The Oculus blog released a preview interview of OrbusVR which, as far as I know, is one of if not the first real attempt at making a VR MMORPG.

It looks... rough. I think the style is nice, though simplistic, but the world they've shown is very "landscapey" and empty. 

Combat looks a bit clunky -- as does most of the gameplay -- and everything feels very low-budget-indie. It suffers from looking like art assets were sloppily placed in a world built as more of a tech demo.

Wrath of the Lich King was the Best WoW Expansion

Something about Battle for Azeroth was announced today. Maybe a release date or prepurchase or something? I don’t know, but the news has people talking about WoW again in our community and the main topic hasn’t been contemporary.

I’m probably not telling you anything you don’t already know and agree with completely. Wrath of the Lich King was so far beyond and away the best WoW expansion there has been and likely — given its direction — ever will be.

What made it so good?
