The latest update to EQ2 has brought in the unlocking of all bag and bank slots for free to play players (my account is silver level).
A screenshot of my warden’s available storage space including bags (right), personal bank (upper left) and shared bank (lower left). He’s a tailor so he can make bags, currently 16 slot is the best. So if I at least replace all the smaller bags with 16 slot bags that’ll increase this space a great deal already. Do I treat this newfound bonanza of slots as a great boon of generosity from SoE or a potential logistical nightmare? WoW has not a patch on the organisational challenge of inventory management in EQ2!
Just to emphasize; through the unlock of restrictions I’ve now got an extra two bag slots per character, an extra eight bank slots per character and an extra six shared bank slots!
I’m not yet ready to swap games from Tera so I’m not playing EQ2 again per se, but I did have a quick run around on my shadowknight for a change of pace.
This giant dragon-themed bridge separates two of the isles of Timorous Deeps, the Sarnak starter zone. Despite the slightly aged graphics, the level of detail is still impressive. Middle distance behind the giant claw bending to the left is a green line, a vine actually which connects a tree to the near side cliff-face (out of shot). That vine has gorillas walking and sitting on it!
I randomly spotted that the city vendor here sells a globe map of Norrath for your house. That is such a cool housing item! It’s rather expensive to this character but I may well have to get it for my main if he can afford it.
This character is my potential tank and my armoursmith, my main wears plate so I need a character leveling up to be able to equip him! I’m trying out tanking again in a few of the games I play as I seem to always play healers. It’s not that I’m bored with healing, far from it, but a change of pace is good occasionally. I’ll be posting my experiences of the lancer from Tera once I’ve actually reached some proper group content.
