    Perhaps the upcoming expansion's pre-order bonus has already been decided. If it has not, could the pre-order bonus entice us like an illusion or mount (versus Mearatas Rock Garden of TBL)?

    The illusion or mount could be of Lodizal. However, I am betting the Premium edition mount will be a turtle.


    This would be a sweet illusion....

    I want a "snow bunny" illusion. I would even consider coming out of retirement if I could run around as a snow bunny.

    Oooh, or a Vorpal Snow Bunny!!!

    Excellent idea! Yes, classic snow bunny please (not Madness of Stomples model)!


    Also, EQ2 Rabbit Mount:


    (Not sure it would fit in EQ1 unless heavily armored. lol).

    preorder bonuses are usually anti climatic so..... for Velious a giant ice cube you can put in your yard? Maybe an ice sculpture of a giant if we are really lucky. I think we can safely say it will not be anything useful.

    More likely, illusion of a mount.

    You try to mount it and nothing happens, cause, you know, it is an illusion.

    I know the answer to this is no, but, teleport clicky!
  8. Sathayorn Augur

    It will be something useless, which does nothing to encourage pre orders.

    Umm, I kinda want a Dain Frostreaver mount now. Its early and my brain wasn't really awake when I read the OP and somehow it came up with the vision of my vahshir riding on the dains shoulders as he ran me around zones :p

    Lol. Best idea! Dwarf mounts!

    I hope the devs read this. We know most core players (group & raid) will buy the expansion no matter what. However, pre-orders will push people "on the fence" - people saving money for holidays, hearing how hard the expac is (open beta info), and/or spending on other games. I think many players nowadays buy the base expansion (unless for the teleport claim - Stratos zoneline is in PoT so it was no biggie) and wait out the year until 50% discounts to upgrade to Collector editions. Pre-order bonuses become more important if seen in this light. I hope we get an illusion or mount this year. Additionally, EQ2 pre-orders have been an illusion w/ unique buff for last several expacs.

    A house like the tree/bixie/ship ones of the past would be nice.

    Probably be (Derakor the vindicator) or (statue of zek/AoW) illusion with it being Kael again and images showing the bridge.

    Rabbit mount be kind of interesting, but probably be a direwolf or ice spider :(
  17. Hekaton Elder

    the preorder bonus is a sense of pride and accomplishment.
    or maybe a surprise mechanic of some sort

    i bet its just a housing item of sorts...maybe a rallos zek wall art or something
  18. Nennius Augur

    Maybe a caricature painting of the devs. Or something completely pointless.

    It might be nice to do like what was it . . . Underfoot? We got a few days early access for pre-ordering.

    Pre orders last time got you into beta. That's kinda early access
