    Those are quite nice and paint evon in a surprisingly good light.

    Very much the anti-hero type from that alone.

    I like those stories. It makes me like the NPCs. Though in the case of Kiel's story, it shows more of Magnus than of Kiel - apparently, the Bloody-Handed has quite the soft side.

    And Evon is Ash-legion? Interesting. Though not surprising, now that I think of it.
    If it's called Vlupius or Vlupia, it's probably me.

    Some QJ icons:

    Apparently the bags are for different kinds of champion loot (e.g. bandit champions have their own bag).
    A few new runes/sigils, one of which is rumoured to be torment based.
    But mostly a buttload of finishers.

    I can't help but notice there's no icon for badges of honor.

    There's no new weapon icons either, so it's not a complete list :]

    There was some theory whereby Evon has something to do with the order of whispers, and that seems to sit well with his being in Ash Legion.

    Hmm, this sounds amazingly good (http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2013...t/#more-162989) although I have to wonder if they are able to actually deliver any of it in a way that is revolutionary.

    Everquest Next’s world is made of voxels and everything in it is destructible.
    Wonder how destructible though, or they'll end up with a world that looks like Swiss cheese one week after release.

    That’s worth saying again: exploration isn’t simply about walking from point to point, it’s about making new routes to previously impossible places.
    In an MMO.
    I love exploration... if they can bring the feeling of Minecraft/Terraria to an MMO, I'm fucking sold.

    Keeping with the blank slate approach to the genre, which involves jettisoning a great deal of jargon, larger quests aren’t defined as ‘raids’ or ‘instances’. There will, at any one time, be an over-riding, worldwide mission, which SOE describe as a ‘Rallying Call’. Every single player is part of a Call, although they are free to ignore its objectives. Each one will last for around three months and they will alter the world in a more directed fashion, creating enormous structural changes or new alliances and enmities.
    Looks like somebody figured a 2-week cycle for new content is not a good idea. Good for them.

    Apparantly it's still 52-48 in favour of Kiel.

    But the only poll that matters is the one on the day when the only thing that matters is turnout and ... hmm. Looks like we're headed to Thaumanova.

    Yeah quite a shame really that we'll miss out on a more interesting fractal (imo) because people wanted slightly cheaper waypoints and a human councilor.

    I still think evon is the better candidate.
    I am also hoping that many evon supporters are like me sitting on hundreds of tickets to use up closer to the day :P

    Out of curiosity: Why? I get the feeling that Evon has been painted as a kind of bad guy during the votes. Kiel on the other hand is just the typical plain boring GW2 NPC questgiver. Nothing memorable about her in my view.

    I love the idea of us voting with consequences, I just think that we know next to nothing about the candidates and their policies. And in the game. Joking aside, aside from their races, and their bribes, sorry policies, Kiel is the quest giver from the southsun arc and Evon runs the BL co. will vote Evon, and on Tuesday if he loses then it will be just like every morning after Election Day:

    theoretically you could use the api to see your bank/wallet contents... wonder how many have tried

    Well at least they told us and its not peak time for either Europe or the US (if you're in Australia, that is bad, but I have little sympathy given how the cricket is going
    You've got to be upset if youre on the last boss of a dungeon in the US and the clock begins to chime midnight. It'll be like cinderella...
