On Sunday I finished my Fabled Epic in Everquest 2. I finally collected Sedition from Kunzar Jungle and was surprisingly underwhelmed by the entire epicness of it all.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m pleased to have this new shiny sword of Sedition and want to thank the guild and various other people for helping me get the sword, I just felt that the whole epic feel had been lost due to the simplicity of completing the quest.
Ok; lets look at it this way, the Mystical Sedition of shiny glory is going to be an Epic event, the quest requires multiple Raid Events and frankly I can’t see myself getting in on any of that any time soon.
So to call this sword an Epic is really doing the Mystical version a disservice in my opinion. What too call it though? On a good day you could probably have completed this Epic quest within a week, a good group of players could have powered through all of the zones and quests in no time at all.
To me when you label something Epic it needs to be that, sure it was a long quest but it certainly wasn’t challenging in any way, shape or form. Perhaps it’s because we’re all so well equipped compared to when the quest came out. The epic portion has been down graded to possibly less epic but more fun than a regular quest.
Getting my epic became more important after Wodge left the guild for more raiding. I was struggling to keep agro from Orang who is clearly better equipped than myself and so gaining hatred was an important factor.
Anyway, I’m chuffed with my new sword and I’m sure it will help the guild advance into some of the more difficult shard zones and potentially when we get some more guys to level 80 and equipped the lesser raid zones that we see.
