Kelethin – Then and Now

The next in my Faydwer screen shot comparison series, Kelethin.

One thing I keep forgetting about Greater Faydark in EverQuest is that it is really dark and gloomy there.  It was bright and sunny in Butcher Block, but when I hit GF, the sun was gone.

Meanwhile, in EverQuest II, Greater Faydark has a much lighter feel.  It is still overcast, like being deep in the forest, but it isn’t as night-like as EQ.

Kelethin did not look so bad back in EQ, at least until you compare it to the EQ2 pictures.  I like that in EQ2 the tree houses have become full, giant acorns.
