The MMO industry moves along at the speed of information, and sometimes we’re deluged with so much news here at Massively Overpowered that some of it gets backlogged. That’s why there’s The MOP Up: a weekly compilation of smaller MMO stories and videos that you won’t want to miss. Seen any good MMO news? Hit us up through our tips line!
This week, EverQuest is in the throes of a "Hardcore Heritage" event, featuring much more difficult versions of Clan Crushbone and Permafrost Caverns for high-level players. "Classic zones, tougher challenges, better loot," Daybreak explains, just in case you were wondering why adventurers were loaning their corpses to this crusade.
We've got plenty of other news tidbits for you after the jump, including patches, MMOs in testing, videos, and more!
Granado Espada Europe is apparently an MMO that some people play, though as the title implies, that playing happens mostly in Europe. German publisher EuroGameZ GmbH put together a press release this week designed to hype a trio of three "big events" that are currently ongoing.
The first is called Black Friday Event, somewhat curiously of course, since Black Friday is both an American thing and over for this year. In any case, all items are discounted by 50 percent and players will receive a Special Character Box chance for one week. The second event is called Lynn's Gift, which gives players "Evil Weapon and Prospe Weapon chance during 2 month." Yeah, I don't know, either. Finally, the Divino Event gives you a Rare Stance Book chance for Heavy Stinger, Soul Bringer, Punisher, and Innocentio, also for one week.
"Gamers can have a chance of long-eagered rare items and characters," according to EuroGameZ. You can watch a Granado Espada Europe trailer after the cut.
