EverQuest II adds a level boost potion for crafting

If you pay for it, it will be built.

Want to get crafting done in EverQuest II but without all the crafting parts? Well, now you can have just that with the tradeskill level 100 boost. Buy it for 3500 Daybreak cash (i.e., $35) and your character’s tradeskill class will be set to 100. The potion also grants an associated 500 skill in tinkering, adorning, transmutation, and the associated tradeskills. In other words, it’s all the joy of crafting without all of that… crafting part.

Players who are still Artisans will be prompted to pick a specific tradeskill class when using the potion, which serves as a quick boost to start in on the new signature quest line for tradeskills. Anyone with an All Access membership will also benefit from a 10% discount on the purchase. Obviously, players who have already done the crafting work won’t have any need of this, but if you’re languishing at lower levels… well, you can change that, and it’ll just cost some money now.

I like this idea but the price is way to high, if you consider the number of alts people play this could work out to $300-400 in a very short time…

People have been asking for this to be added to the game for years. It’s a good news story. Price is a bit steep but that’s about the only downside.

Things like this that have been added to cash shops should not have articles written about them except if the article portrays it in a negative light, otherwise it comes off like an advertisement (I know it’s not, I’m just saying that’s how it reads). Would love for MoP to be more cut-throat regarding genre ruining business practices like this instead of inadvertly promoting it.

I read plenty of snarkiness in it myself. =D Is why I don’t write these — I am just too positive in general =P

Yeah, I guess Eliot needed a bunch of sarcasm tags, but we thought the snark in stuff like “it’s all the joy of crafting without all of that… crafting part” was obvious.

what on earth are you talking about. EQ2 is a 14 year old game, if people are tired of crafting up 14 years worth of crafting skills on alts let them pay to skip it. If those players dont want their experiences “ruined” they can farm up their crafting the skills the old fashion way.

You would totally have a point in a day 1 release game but after 14 years? come on now

To me, it reads like an advertisement for a trend in the genre that is doing more harm than good. The age of the game is completely irrelevant.
