EverQuest II is testing class balance updates

    
8
Can't we go back to mushroom people? That'd be keen.

EverQuest II‘s latest producer’s letter is a bit lower key than previous entries, perhaps, but no less vital for it. The letter outlines new class balance changes that are being tested for Fighters, Summoners, and Scouts. High-priority issues have been lingering for all three classes for some time, so all three are due for revamps that will make them more useful and fun to play.

Scouts and Fighters should both see DPS increases, while defensive armor for Fighters is being refined so that using the class abilities and cooldowns feels more meaningful. Summoners, meanwhile, are going to benefit from a revamped pet AI and several long-requested UI features to make tracking pets that much easier. While players aren’t invited into the testing yet, these changes should be coming as part of a larger update which will be detailed soon; EQII fans should keep their eyes peeled.

Zariarn  It isn’t really the graphics that need an overhaul, its the spell effects and combat animations.  They revamped them a while back, but they are still terrible.

Zariarn Graphics overhaul? Would be kinda welcome, the game looks very uninspiring at the lower levels. I never managed to get past the levelling process and with my level 90 char that I got out of the free promotion back then, the newer zones I visited still looked kinda bland. A graphics overhaul might be what the game needs to get me personally invested; on the other hand, I’ve seen so many gorgeous screenshots in EQ2 that I never seem to be able to re-discover ingame…

agemyth Zariarn They look good for it’s age, especially with SweetFX.  However, I do believe it could use an overhaul.

Zariarn Yeah, why waste the dev resources on “moar graphics” when the game is already gorgeous :)
Yes, I know a lot of people actually do think it looks dull.
