I agree that choosing vampires as a new race is just a way to earn money from riding the stupid Twilight wave. The lore is really bad too. As for the looks, I was a little relieved to read this on the official forum:

Additionally, the screenshots that were released were not intended to be public-facing. Those have been taken down from the EQ2Players site and will be replaced with real shots soon.

Removing quests like this... Why on Norrath would they remove this quest from the game? It is funny stuff, but was taken out of the game years ago.

Same goes for a bunch of other low level quests from the Freeport and Qeynos starter villages, I miss them and I feel sad that new players don't get to experience that stuff, just because someone decided one day that they should be removed.

That... is awesome. Did they even give a reason behind why they removed it? Were they afraid it would frighten some people or what? It makes me sad that a company would willingly remove some of the touches that could give some character and personality to the game. Makes me wonder what other awesome quests were lost.

The original boatride, before you got to the isle of refuge, had some really awesome scripting, great voiceovers and funny moments, oh what I wouldn't give to be able to go through that again...

"Me hat! Where's me lucky hat!"

And there were lots of neat little quests in the starter villages that are gone now.

Yeah I've heard about that too. Shame, I never got to see those and whats worse is the Halas starting area proves rather effectively that we are likely to get less interesting and more repetitive stuff than really unique stuff. Halas is probably the worst starting area I've personally done and it just makes me sad. I liked TD though.

Maybe we could find a way to petition to have some of these quests restored in some form even if they aren't easy to get to or something. I threw in the , not easy to get into, in case their goal in removing them is to make it so new players don't stumble upon them. I know that's why they removed the starter isle things :/

Smedley. I think every single little complaint I could list can be traced back to him. /sigh.

Stargrace has finally had enough of the marketplace nonsense: http://mmoquests.com/2010/12/22/saying-my-goodbyes-to-eq2-eq2/

And I did a little illustration for Feldon over at EQ2 Wire: http://eq2wire.com/2010/12/22/cheesepirate-smedleys-toothy-grin-explained/
