Odyssey Now 18 Times More Useful

Posted: December 11, 2007 by Kendricke in Everquest 2

I never saw it in any patch notes (and a quick search on SOE’s Game Update Notes forum shows nothing listed, either), but apparently the recast time on the cleric spell Odyssey has been reduced from 3 minutes to just 10 seconds.

If intended (and it certainly may be, considered that the conjuror spell Call of the Hero had its own recast cut from 8 minutes to 3), this could certainly be seen as a boon to clerics who have long complained about the lack of usefullness of the spell.

What does this actually mean?  Odyssey  effectively acts as a duplicate to a Call of X spell.  Whether or not you’re trying to get back home to Qeynos, Kelethin, Freeport, Neriak, or Gorrowyn, any cleric who is level 13 or higher (and who has at least one “Odyssey Stone” in his or her inventory) can cast the spell on you and you’ll be zipped back home (instead of waiting for the 60 minute timer on your Call of X).

By reducing the recast timer from 3 minutes to just 10 seconds, entire groups can be sent back home in less than 2 minutes.

Now all that’s needed is a high level upgrade to the spell which sends entire groups home at once…
