EQNJunkies Welcom

We are please to announce our latest arm of the Junkies Nation Network: EQNext Junkies! It has been our long tradition to launch and cover the latest and greatest MMORPGs coming out on the internet. It’s been a long while in coming, but it’s finally here. We are dedicated to bring you the latest news, opinion, guides, community coverage when it comes to Everquest Next.

Everquest Next is the next installment of the MMORPG that started it all fourteen years ago. From the origins of hardcore online gaming to this new iteration, EQNext promises to show us something new. EQNext’s design has been scrapped twice to it’s final form that has been decried the anti-themepark. EQ Next will bring promises of sandbox and emergent gameplay, what that means, we don’t know but all will be revealed at SOE’s Fanfaire on August 2nd.

SOE has been very tightlipped when it comes to information, but that hasn’t stopped speculation based on a myriad of Smedley tweets. The most ardent fans have come to believe that this game will bring together EVE-like gampelay mixed with the dungeon delving game of yester-year. Is the internet ready for EVE with fireballs and elves?

Stay tuned at EQN Junkies for all the latest rumors and news on Everquest Next!

S01E22 title screen

This week we sit down with Mark Jacobs and discuss his Kickstarter project: Camelot Unchained. Our conversation ranges from what to expect in the game to going over his founding principles and getting to the bottom of what he wants his game to become. Camelot Unchained looks to bring old school RVR/PVP ideals to a modern game. While not shooting for a AAA game created to support millions of players; Mark Jacobs hopes to fashion a game for RVR players only. Not sacrificing design to make everyone happy, Camelot Unchained hopes to bring RVR to its niche market.

Keep reading to watch the interview.

Path Less Traveled, Small Guilds and Public Appeal

For large guilds, the path to Vanarch success is clear.  Get big.  Make an alliance.  Appeal to the public for additional votes.  For large guilds, appealing to the public is an insurance policy against the votes that are generated simply by being big and by being allied with other big guilds.  While this path is well worn on every server, it is not the only path to Vanarch.  For small guilds, appealing to the public is one answer to compete with the big boys.

In this week’s column, I want to explore some ways that a smaller guild can use the public to gain the votes needed to win a province.  I will highlight what I feel is a political success story on Basilisk Crag authored by the guild The High Five to demonstrate my points.  If you are guild leader of a smaller or less active guild that would like to make a run for Vanarch, but are not sure how to do it, The High Five may have provided you with a template.

Editor’s Note: If you don’t recall, Oloh was the guy who purchased a Teratome siteskin and had an interview with Massively!

I’m Oloh.  I am guild master of Nagafen, one of the more influential political guilds on the Basilisk Crag server.  My goal with this column is to give insight into the ups and downs of political maneuvering within The Exiled Realm of Arborea.  The thoughts and comments expressed here are meant to be informative and entertaining to all players ofTERA, but I will focus on examples and stories from my home server, Basilisk Crag due to its fertile political scene.

This week’s topic is on the importance of choosing the right allies and the responsibility of a Vanarch to server health, which are the two most important aspects of becoming a real political player on any server.  Some GMs are inclined to simply ally themselves with guilds that have a high number of members, but such approach is short-sighted and detrimental to the long term health of both the GM’s guild and the server as a whole.

My approach for every political decision that I make is to find a solution that both increases Nagafen’s influence on the server and that promotes the general health of the server.  Note that I make no claims that our motives for server health are altruistic…it is no fun to be a political powerhouse on a dead server.  Guild power and server health are inextricably linked in my mind.

We’ve found some videos from Korea that are showing some of the new Lancer and Warrior skills. The three videos we’ve found show off a Overwhelm, a Lancer’s new shield bash attack; the new Warrior block and Smoke Agressor.

You’ll also see the new Stamina bar for Warriors as well.

Keep reading if you want to see the videos in action.
