Petition: Add classic "illusions" to the Marketplace finally

    We're tired of this nonsense being added to loot crates (which are very quickly becoming illegal in many countries, currently a few laws being passed around in the States now concerning them).

    We want old school illusion clickies! Either make them questable, drops, or marketplace (obviously you'll make money to support the company with the latter).

    I make this thread almost every TLP, but never get a response.

    Suggested Classic illusion clickies:
    • Blackburrow Gnoll (white, blue/black warrior, and the brown shamans)
    • Qeynos Guard
    • Freeport Guard
    • OldSchool Froglok (not those garbo guktans, /spit)
    • OldSchool Kobold
    • OldSchool Goblino
    • Imps
    Those are just the ones off the top of my head I'd like to see added to the marketplace as stand-alone purchases, or put them all into a gambling crate, if you absolutely have to, but ONLY CONTAINING ILLUSION CLICKIES THAT ARE TRADEABLE UNTIL UNWRAPPED!
    Looking at the gambling crate, because YES it IS gambling, for the halfling-guard illusion essentially every item except for the illusion is worthless trash. We don't even know the rates to get the illusion!
    Thanks for reading!

    I'd be interested in just having at a handful of more options. Aradune and Rizlona felt like every female chraacter had the siren illusion during classic, then everyone had the dwarf illusion during Kunark (from the crate), and then everyone was using the shissar illusion during Luclin.

    Put out more illusions, for players and pets. The graphics are already in the game, can't be that hard to slap on a "Wand of the xxxx" with the spell illusion effect, can it?

    Main issue is that a VERY tiny minority actually like the newer graphic models. Most of us just want them low-poly nostalgia buttons.

    I love the new models. i may also be the only person that would admit I prefer the SOGA models of EQ2.

    I still hate the new Freeport.

    I've gotten used to the new Freeport, but I'd take the old one back instantly if it were ever an option. Nek Forest and the Commonlands revamps (and such) were never too big of a deal to me, because it was just updating the graphics and maybe combining a couple of zones. The layout still remained almost the same.

    New and Old Freeport was a completely different revamp that changed things quite a bit. If they had just stuck to a graphics overhaul, it wouldn't receive so much grief.

    Agreed. I'm fine with the artistic direction, but the city layout planner deserves some 1 on 1 time with Cazic Thule.

    Not most, some.

    Great post! The new skeleton models that were imposed upon necromancers and shadow knights are terrible. They have inferior animations and look like they were done by an intern.

    The old model skeletons still exist in game so there's no excuse!

    Why can't DGB offer both the white and red skeleton polymorph illusion wands for our pets?

    Instead we get more worthless loot boxes which is a form of gambling.

    The issue with this to my knowledge (it may have been fixed at some point) is that there is (was?) a finite limit to the total amount of allowable Global Models. Because of how EQ works programming wise, each expansion has a tree that contains the Models to be rendered in the expansion. Any character / NPC models above that went into the Global Models exclusion section.

    While all playable races are among the Global Models list (thus allowing the creation of Playable Race Illusions), there are (were?) limitations to the extent of that list and has (was?) a finite total.

    The civil engineers responsible for designing Freeport should be flogged with spaghetti... Al dente!

    This is a good idea. I'd also like to add Kerran, aviak, minotaur, etc, but old school froglok is the best one.

    It would also be great to be able to use the velious/god custom helmet graphic outside of those eras, whether it is through hero forge working with old models, an in game option, or quest.

    If we are going to have polymorphs, than we should have a lot of options I would think. It will be a good way for Daybreak to earn more money as well. It seems to be a no brainer.
  16. Master Kahleem Augur

    Polymorph is different than illusion/visage. I'm talking about player illusions, not polymorphs.

    Please don't make the devs think we want polymorphs OVER illusions/visages XD

    Give these to enchanters. Sounds like an opportunity for more masks for rog/bard too.

    Shadow man illusion when?
  19. MMOer Augur

    Illusions are something I feel good about spending my money on.

    I'm down with this idea.

    I'd funnel money to Daybreak for more illusion options.
