EverQuest Next Landmark Information from gamescom

When 7 AM Pacific rolled around, it looked as if we weren't getting a EverQuest Next stream today, especially since the stream disappeared from the ESL streaming schedule. Thankfully, that wasn't the case and eventually they began showing today's EQ Next Landmark panel! Here is some new information I gleaned from it:

  • Tinting system will be in game (dye customization).
  • Adventurer class: You'll be able to multi-class on day one with the adventurer class as your secondary class (you can bring your toon over from EQ Landmark).
  • Open-player market stalls where you can sell items to other players.
  • Ley lines, heroic waypoints... and MOUNTS.
  • You'll be able to gather resources & make tools. Will be crafting tables, some require group participation to make stuff, some tables will be rare.
  • They are currently showing a timelapse video of 2 players changing the terrain themselves using Landmark tools.
  • There will be spherical brushes to help smooth builds, etc.
  • Friends list, guild structures, co-op buildouts, text chat, VoiP, SOEmote, LEADERBOARDS.
  • Player Studio: Achievement system for creators and consumers, filter and follower options (like subscribing to creators).
  • Players can package up claims/deeds and sell them.
  • You can record while you create/change landscape/claim and then upload it to YouTube.

I may have missed some highlights, but I will update this post if I find anything else!

Update

The recording is up on YouTube thanks to Anostalgia:

    Can't wait to get more info. I agree that the adventurer class and being able to port your character into EQN is epic! The reveal about mounts being in the game is pretty sweet as well!

    I am more excited about the Norrath themed area in EverQuest Next Landmark than Everquest Next at the moment. The amount of creative freedom they are giving the users to help become part of their world is absolutely astounding. If they can deliver what they are promising of course. I am absolutely stoked to explore and build.

    While there's so much exciting news coming out about this, I think news regarding the adventurer class and porting your character from Landmark to EQN is probably the most seriously rad stuff I've heard about any game in a really, really long time!

    It won't let me watch the video. It just keeps playing the ads. -_-

    I've switched it out to a YouTube upload so you should be good now. :)

    Is that what the heroic waypoints are for? I am going to have to rewatch it!

    I think that was possible through the wizard spires if I understood it correctly.  Seems like a Landmark only feature so you can go world hopping and look at every ones creations.  Which.. is.. AWESOME.
