New Hot Bars – EverQuest Has Them

Something new for everybody in the Veil of Alaris expansion.

There is a new splash screen!

Okay, there is more than a splash screen.  There are also new hot bars.

It seems like a silly new feature, but the hot bars in EverQuest now look… well, more like you expect if you have played any MMO since 2004 or so.  And you get more of them, and 12 is the standard number per bar.

12 buttons

There is a new help file on the changes, and the changes apply to everybody who plays the game.  I am sure somebody will complain how this will ruin the whole progression server retro experience.

They still seem to act pretty much the way they used to however.  It is one of those things that takes me a while to figure out every time I go back to the game.

And that is pretty much it for me and the new expansion.
