New Expac offers what exactly?

    I wasn't able to play any of the beta, so I'm in the dark about what exactly I am getting if I buy the premium edition which is $139

    I read the highlights but powerful gear class spells, there is no description or examples of either given.

    While I still enjoy my casual solo play most of the time. over the years the game has been unfriendly for alts.

    I'm not talknig about the leveling, getting spells and abilities to a rank that can actually do damage is a huge grind or money investment which I will not do just to make one of my alts relevant.

    Over the years the expacs come out and the details are severely lacking as to what exactly your actually getting for the money they want for such and older game.

    So if anyone has any information as to what the class spells are bringing to the table I would appreciate it.

    I absolutely hate ascension spells and never use them, I know blah blah blah, but that choice of direction in the game is a huge mistake and has 0 to do with the actual classes and just a generic gap filler.

    So if there is not anything else class related thats worth the money I will pass for the first time ever on an eq2 expac (

    Just buy the regular version for the content and play your character from there. The expensive version has never given anything that definitely makes someone more powerful than everyone else-- not even your choice of *one* ancient spell.

    All this expansion offers is more of the same copy/paste stuff from previous expansions just with bigger numbers.
    Cussa is right, save your money, the fluff this time ain't worth it

    I'm pretty well annoyed that the $139 version (which I call the "sucker edition") offers even less than last year for the same price. Which I don't understand at all. Why remove digital items that don't have a material cost? The tradeskill boost we got last year is now only available in the "super sucker edition", and one 1 ancient spell instead of the two like last year. But same exact price for fewer items? You need to give people a reason to want to buy this stuff, given today's economy...not give them a reason to not buy at all.

    spending $ pays the bills for them.

    This is the most unfaithful answer ever. Everquest 2 is P2W especially with the big xpac.

    OH yeah, it's *REALLY* pay to win. You can see the marketplace just flooded with the absolute best gear money can buy. Yeah they really just start siphoning directly from your bank account just because you zoned out of Qeynos once. What's that? You want to open your inventory? Better shell out that cash...

    This isn't quite true for bleeding edge raiders. Generally the mount and familiar are BIG upgrades, though, and there is no other way to get them.

    Except for the celestial merc, celestial familiar, and celestial mount. Good luck running heroics without them. o_O

    I am grossly unimpressed with the new Celestial mercenary, TBH.
