EverQuest II plots Toil and Trouble for next week, teases dinosaur/centaur expansion

Daybreak’s Jenn Chan has surfaced with a letter to the EverQuest II community this week that spills a few beans on the game’s next update: It’s dubbed Toil and Trouble, and it launches August 10th. What’s in it? Oh my sweet summer child. Chan is not telling you that in spite of the fact that it’s only a week away.

“Let’s start by announcing that our next game update is going to be called Toil and Trouble, and it will be available on August 10th, 2021! We plan to dive deeper into the content that’s coming in a post scheduled for a later date so keep an eye out for that to land soon. In the meantime, know that no matter what your playstyle is: whether you like to tradeskill all day, run around and complete quests, or raid with your guildmates, there is something for everyone!”

Chan further roadmaps events for the next few months, including a double loot event starting August 10th, Fortress of Drunder dungeon unlocks on August 25th, the Panda Panda Panda event in the fall (yes it’s called that now), and a tease for what we can only assume is the late-year expansion. It’s got dinosaurs, she says, and also apparently centaurs? “You’ll soon be the Centaur of attention,” Chan signs off.

Meanwhile, over in Classic EverQuest, Daybreak kicks off Whizzlebang Twempt’s living legacy raids event today.

I’d totally be into EQ2 if they pruned down the ability bloat. Six or more hotbars filled with crap? Completely kills the experience for me.

A Centaur is NOT a dinosaur, it’s a half human half horse mythological creature.

I assumed those were two distinct features. Does anyone think centaurs are dinosaurs?

I wouldn’t think so , but those two sentences in succession look weird.

Google centaur dinosaur, there’s lots of fun pictures of many things that aren’t half horse

Reader

I guess … but wouldn’t a thundercat be a centaur by that logic?

it’s more like the horse part is instead a dino part

Thundercats aren’t ‘taurs unless the bottom half is a quadrapedal cat. Raptor ‘taurs are a thing that people have drawn pictures of, apparently. (Short version – it’s a raptor that has a human from the waist up where the raptor head would normally be.)

‘Taurs are hybrids, but not all hybrids are ‘taurs.

I just had to google that, wasn’t expecting that to be a thing.

A chimera like that would have to be warm-blooded, so I guess we’re talking about avian dinosaurs here.

Could be non-avian dinosaurs. There’s apparently some evidence that being some degree of warm blooded was a general trait of many dinosaurs. After all, the only thing that sets avian dinosaurs apart is that they were “lucky” enough to have descendants survive the Extinction Level Event that wiped everyone else out.
