EverQuest II debuts its otterly adorable Oceansfull festival
Is it ever too late in an MMO’s lifecycle to introduce a new holiday? We think not! EverQuest II is jazzing up June with a festival that’s all about otters. Oh, you laugh, but give it a few seconds of thought. Who wouldn’t want to go to an otter festival? They hold hands when they sleep — and when they party!
“Although this began as an othmir celebration, pirates, sailors, fishermen, and other ocean-folk have caught on quickly, joining in the reverie and praising the Ocean Lord,” EverQuest II said. “Now, they have decided to expand the festivities even further — for the first time, they have decided to open the celebration to all of Norrath and anyone who may want to join in on the festivities!”
This festival, which runs through June 18th, takes place around certain bodies of water and encourages players to go on a clam shell hunt to earn titles, complete collections, and grab several new ocean-themed rewards.
