Actually EQ2 Lanys isn't dead technically. She was a demi-god and had all of her divine power sucked out of her by Inny to help him maintain the Plane of Hate and his own power. What is left of her is trapped in a gem. Honestly have no idea why Lany's body was in Nerriak. In EQ2 Emporer Katta was never taken to Luclin either. As far as we're concerned there is a secret sect of druids still guarding his body in stasis somewhere. FYI: Its the Lifeguide Staff, created by Tunare and most famously used by her Champion Firona Vie. This weapon exists in EQ1 pre-split. It still exists in Firona Vie's possession in EQ2, and was apparently "borrowed" to help bring Lendinaria back to EQ2. There should still be a Lifeguide Staff in EQ1's Firona Vie's possession. From what people said Layns used the EQ2 staff to help get Lendinaria back, and she created a connection to our version of the staff which could explain why Layns in EQ2 may be able to break free from her prison.
