A Perspective.

Velious Game Update Summary

Checkout EQ2i Dirge for more info on particular intricacies such as epic weapon requirements, examine descriptions (for AAs, spells, combat arts), grandmaster choices, and specialized Dirge item sets.

Players can purchase the house item trophy version of their epic weapons (along with their mythical spell gems & enervated weapon), after they betray by speaking with Jawharah Izzah in Nektulos as long as they have completed "Epic Repercussions".

The website will become temporarily out of service due to the web host provider doing maintentance on occasion.

I will no longer be updating this guide. This guide has not been updated since 13 of March, 2011. My game play has been reduced dramatically due to real life responsibilities. Do not expect any kind of timely replies to mail sent to me.

I hope this guide has helped your enjoyment of the game. May your adventures lead ya to wonderous fortune!

Below "Soon To Come" is still coming, but I am also working on reformating the website so it does not come across as an encyclopedia that hits you with all the information all at once. Also, I will be bringing new information introduced from Velious (Everquest2's 7th Expansion) and I will be transfering some new data from other forums to this concise guide.
