EverQuest II Offfers New Vampire Race
EverQuest II, the hugely popular MMORPG, recently released the new Freeblood race, which is available for purchase on the Marketplace in EverQuest II and EverQuest II Extended.
According to the EQ website, when you make a Freeblood character, you'll gain a bunch of new abilities, including Reveal Inner Self, which is the ability to reveal the inner demon within to your foes, and a racial passive ability that drains your enemy's health to repair your own damage while you're in combat. On top of that you also get a set of new unarmed combat animations to let you show your savage side during melee.
Like other races, when you start your Freeblood character, you'll be able to personalize your standard appearance, as well as your Inner Self illusion. To do this go to any barber NPC in the game after initial customization. You just turn on your Inner Self illusion, then purchase a "Shave and a Cut" item from the barber and you'll be able to customize your alternate appearance.
But the goodies don’t stop at just a new race, there are also a handful of other Freeblood accessories up for purchase:
“Once you create a Freeblood character, you'll find additional items available for purchase within the Character Pack category in the Marketplace. These three unique items are available only for Freebloods, and can be purchased individually, or you can buy all three in the Freeblood Accessory Pack. These items include the Freeblood Contract for 1500 Station Cash, the Cloud of Bats ability for 2500 SC, and Ferocity of the Freeblood for 500 SC. The Freeblood Accessory Pack containing all three items is available for 3000 SC.
The Freeblood Contract grants the bearer ownership of an exclusive Freeblood Lair Estate. The Cloud of Bats ability shapechanges the vampire into a cloud of bats, which increases out of combat speed by 65% and reduces the falling speed of the caster. Characters who go on to unlock flying mounts in the Destiny of Velious expansion will also be able to use this ability to fly. Ferocity of the Freeblood adds special effects to your new unarmed combat animations (see the video for a demonstration).”
Sounds pretty rad. Any of you play Ever Quest II? If so, will you be rolling this new race?
