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.

    The darkness in the old EQ1 zones made traveling at night scary and dangerous… you had no idea what you’d come across. I liked that in Toxxulia, the only lights you would see were the struggling torches outside Erudin and the kobold-infested campfires… that was a zone I learned by heart because as an Erudite, I could not see in the dark.

    EQ1 always seemed more real at night.
