Of particular note, seems there’s a new dungeon (Miragul Upper), a least one new possible diety (Rodcet Nife, God of life and healing), a new version of Anashti Sul (Desert of Flames), several new cloaks, and a slew of creatures which seem related to the Northlands or the Void.

    Interesting. But remember Fungus Grove, home of the mushroom people and the fungus critters, was in Luclin. For that matter, I’m not sure we can even cross Odus off the list, because an Obsidian Earth Elemental pet sounds like something you could find in The Hole.

  2. Kendricke says:

    I’m still leaning towards The Void. Too much of the game’s lore points us toward The Void and a lot of the files in this patch only seem to confirm more void creatures as a whole.

    I don’t see Fungus Men as any kind of Luclin confirmation. Remember, Fungus Men were actually originally denizens of Innothule Swamp, which was featured prominantly in the three installments of “Escape from Guk” in which the two main protaganists also face a shadow possessed troll and a horrific tentacled creature. In the recent Stratics devchat, it was mentioned that the Escape from Guk series was part of the lead up to the next expansion. Also, remember that the mushroom creatures in Fungus Grove (and Dawnshroud Peaks and elsewhere) bore little resemblance to the Fungus Men of Innothule.

    The Void would rock, too 🙂 Another zone in which they could do anything without being constrained by EQ1.

    I think I’m too giddy from the upcoming coercer changes to be anything but gleeful about anything *giggles like a school girl*

    But.. fungus grows in deep dark caves… there were dark caves in Odus and Ykesha was reachable from a boat off Odus.. and Ykesha had lots of deep dank caves. Fungus breeds by spores. The moon blowing up could have spread spores far and wide and allowed it to grow in lots of deep dank caves.

    But… shadow men are cool cool cool. I want more shadow men 🙂 I want a high level shadow man that I can “tame” to be my pet to go and slaughter more shadow men. Cool cool cool 🙂

    Oh… and some fungus has certain “medicinal” properties. Fungus and shadow men.. ooooo cool *giggles*

    As for Rodcet.. I hope they bring Terris Thule, too. Fungus can bring some “medicinal” dreams, too *impish grin*.
