I logged into EQ2 to have a first look at the Frostfell seasonal event today. Of the seasonal events that I’ve seen in-game it’s one of the most content-rich and engaging. It’s also packed full of charming humour.
I’d read about a new kitten familiar that’s going to be available for the event tokens (E’ci). Checking out the handy article at EQ2Traders I see that it costs 50 to unlock. My main character, the Inquisitor, hasn’t actually done much of this event. For a few years I played my Shadowknight more, coinciding with the occasions that I had more free time for Frostfell, and he has a lot more E’ci as a result. Between the three characters that have done at least some of the many quests and repeatable tasks, I’ve got a total of 31 E’ci – so there’s some way to go but it’s not that daunting.
Zoning into the Wonderland Village zone has very pleasant associated memories, it’s a feel-good zone for a feel-good time of year. I think I may be neglecting progress on the new expansion for some time with these seasonal distractions now available!
Curiously the Merry Kitten familiar has lower stats than the other familiars I already have unlocked. Since I’m not that gear-driven anyway this is a moot point. I *need* that kitten on one of my characters, clearly!
Happy Frostfell everyone!
