Who’s working marketing for EQ2?

I’d imagine with the EQ2x stuff going seemingly well they’d have a fire lit under their ass. Then I read the upcoming expansion flier and had to stop and double take on my underwhelmedness.

“300 new quests?” “30 new creatures” “Crawl your way through 10 dangerous dungeons” “Group up with 12-24 man raids for desirable loot”

“desirable loot” is where the penny dropped.

“24 man raid ‘desirable’ loot”.

It’s Velious. That’s all the publicity it needs :)

Almost sounds like they’re trying to not make you want to play with such wonderful descriptions of how much grinding and redundant content and monsters you’ll be encounting. I’m just glad the loot is at least desirable, that makes it all worth it!
