Are you ready to head down into a cellar, get some rum, and become the lord or lady of rum in EverQuest II? Because that’s not really what the Rum Cellar campaign is about, just FYI. Still, you can find out for yourself on April 28th, when the campaign goes on sale for $14.99 as a stand-alone purchase. Players who want to pick this adventure up along with the Altar of Malice expansion – a required component to play through it – will be able to pick up both at a bundle price of $49.99 ($94.99 for the Altar of Malice Collector’s Edition). And, of course, subscribers get a 10% discount. It’s all in keeping with EQII’s new plan to switch to cutting expansions in favor of DLC.

The last post on that thread explains the conclusions and the useful information taken away by the moderation team. Community Manager RadarX writes,

We are going to initiate the edit post policy at minimum on the EQ2 forums.
We cannot re-institute the forum-admin email process based on the resources we have available. We’re discussing what alternatives we can provide. .
We are doing a full review of our moderation process to ensure everyone on our team is fully trained and capable of providing consistent practice across our titles.
