Only 7 more days left until we see the next big patch hitting. 2.5 brings with it a laundry list of new goodies including several instance upgrades: Wanderer’s Palace HM (Tonberries are so cute), Amdapor Keep HM (Sorry, you said two walls?), and the completely new Keeper of the Lake! (Now THAT’S a dragon)
For those with a penchant for gambling the Mandervilles will be introducing new story and hints toward the initial aspects of their new gold plated luxury hotel and casino nestled on the white sandy beaches of Cosa del Sol… the Golden Saucer! I’m sorry, they had me at the basketball hoop game. Guess we know where drunk night is going to be held from now on. The Golden Dave and Buster’s! Unfortunately, the grand opening isn't until 2.51 in February. :(
I see Square has been copying us. Chocobo racing was our idea! Shhh… that’s our story and we’re sticking to it. I get to be Mario! The Triple Triad collectable card game because seriously, you just aren’t a successful MMO unless you have a collectable card game these days.
Odin finally tosses his helm into the arena with a new Primal battle, Urth’s Font, (How hard can he be? I mean his horse only has four legs Pshshs!) and we finally descend … ascend … enter the final stage of the Crystal Tower, The World of Darkness *queue ominous music*… wait, wasn’t that a cancelled CCP MMO? Ooohh, I hope there are vampires! I love Kate Beckinsale! All and all it looks creepy and spooky and just the sort of place I want to go with 16 other random strangers that want to troll me.
All and all a truck load of new content for a game that already has more stuff than I can fit into my busy schedule, and all for free. Let’s show them some love people. Seven days and counting so let’s get ready and see what happens after the Before the Fall… later. This time stuff gets so confusing.
