As part of the continuing series of articles previewing new areas in the latest Everquest 2 expansion, Sentinel's Fate, SOE is showing off The Abandoned Lab. Check it out!
The next of the Vasty Deep dungeons is the Abandoned Labs. Here, the Erudites conducted the majority of their non-botanical experiments. Additionally, the Labs contained the living quarters for all the Erudites working in the Vasty Deep. Much has changed here, with Odus's troubles, and adventurers will learn much of the fate that met the poor people trapped within these walls.
This is the second of the Vasty Deep dungeon series on which Leah "Mortalus" Swigart worked. She's done an excellent job and sat down to give us some really great insights into this zone!
What sort of feel were you trying to give players with this zone?
The Abandoned Labs feels foreboding and creepy. Kyle "Kander" Vallee populated the Vasty Deep zones and the monsters and boss fights he created are really tailored to the themes of each zone. In addition to ghosts in the Abandoned Labs there are escaped experiments and maybe even a void-touched scientist or two.
