I didn't see anything in the presentation that excited me about PoP. I'll buy one collector's xpac but the rest will be basic xpacs unless PoP has more to it than what was shown. It does look like we will be going back to regular harvesting as I saw mushroom plants, from ToT, so I hope I'm right about this. One of my favorite things about EQ2 is harvesting while adventuring. That's why I play two characters at once so one can harvest while the other fights off mobs with the mercs. I don't understand the difference between advanced solo and duos. Can two characters run a zone with their mercs or are duo zones really what we now call advanced solo? I hope it is two characters with mercs as that is how I love to play and it would make this xpac well worthwhile for me. I still don't understand ascension despite the efforts of a number of really nice players who have tried to explain it to me. I just collect scrolls and click on the icon when it lights up. I do the same with the spells. I have no idea why I keep getting the ascension spell to change my form every time I get a scroll from an ascension trainer. If it gives some sort of buff it doesn't state that on the scroll when I examine it so I just keep clearing the hotkey which I find annoying. I find the new merc and mounts absolutely gross. They look like something out of a nightmare. I hope you give us a spell to change the merc's looks to something more acceptable. I would love to get a mount that looks like the horse in the video. It would look great in my stables. I still don't understand why you all continue to create monochrome zones when 10% of males are color blind to some extent. I'm not color blind and I have problems in those type zones so I can't imagine what a color-blind person must go through. I hope this will turn out to be an excellent xpac despite my current reservations. Just being alt-friendly is a good beginning. I'll have to wait and see whether it is worth $120+ for the collector's edition for each of my accounts.
