    Good news, we can finally get an Othmir illusion, Othmir merc., & there's a snow bunny mount!

    Otherwise, its kind of meh. We get a pre-order bonus this year in the form of more shared exp. goblets but it's only level 2, not 3. Worse, the Friends and Family edition is packed with Overseer packs and Human Heritage crates, so no RNG override bundle :-/ Not sure I care for the heroic boosts either.

    The Friends & Family tier definitely got nerfed so I'm not sure if its as good for people hoping to exchange the gifs for Krono.

    Also, don't we already have an frost themed wurm? I get that this is a different type of ice/cold but...

    That is the only pre order bonus? Some exp goblets?:(

    No igloo for a special house?

    When was the last expansion we even got a special house? I don't even know, just know it was when I was on a break from EQ. I doubt they have the resources to facilitate that unless they repurposed an older map.

    The skyshrine dragon brazier looks pretty nice.

    Oh, an igloo would have been so nice.

    And no female othmir? What ? It's a shame !!!

    Daybreak/Darkpaw has never done a special house for EQ. The last one was the ship from The Darkened Sea which was the last Sony expansion. EQ2 gets glorious houses every year. cmon guys skin a house with ice interiors or something like the hermits hideaway.

    Also, how do you know if an Othmir is female?

    There is a Beehive house from CoTF i think it was.

    The worst part is it looks like they cut at least one of the the planned items!

    If you watch the Youtube video, there was originally going to be a mimic metamorph wand too! I would have totally chosen the mimic over the bulthar. I really really hope they put that into an upcoming heritage crate or make that attainable, that would look great or be fun to place in housing. Go to 58 seconds in!

    Don't worry! That Mimic Metamorph wand is still going to pop up somewhere.

    Not only do we need new expansion houses but they really need to up the number of slots inside the older ones. For their size, 100 slots above a normal 3 room house is not enough to decorate thoroughly.

    RIP not having houses as part of the $90 or $140 packages. Just a bunch of illusions and other cosmetic things are, in my opinion, kinda tough sells on the way from $35 to $90 or $150.

    I thankfully have the bixie (CotF) and evantil (RoF) houses from way-back-when.

    Blood pools differently after you've quad kited them on the beach.

    Is it too late to request that anyone the Othmir Gentleman illusion is player attackable?

    ...many othmir were killed to raise my tailoring to 250 in the day...

    What do you do with 30 overseer packs? Are they tradeable?

    I hope they change their mind and add the mimic familiar as a pre-order bonus.

    Getting a bug where I try to order w/ one of my accounts and it points me to use a CC or Pay Pal...which is wrong as should point to the CC I have on file. When I try to add CC info from page where it's asking for CC or Pay Pal it says my CC is already on file and to use that one...I'll give it another day although all of my other accounts had no issue.
  19. KermittheFroglok Augur

    Use them to play overseer I guess, but... not sure how much value they are, I assume they're not tradable similar to the ones you buy from the Marketplace (I think they're not tradable).

    Yeah the closest you can get now is to pick up the Hermit's Hideaway from a LON rng pack - I got two that way and another one someone was selling in the baz but its been at least a year since I have seen any more. Am hoping they put the ROF collectable edition on sale with the Adobe. But it would prob be like $200 lol
