Using the voxel technology and with a mix of Minecraft and EverQuest Next we get to help with development.
This is getting released this winter.

I've been remiss on keeping up with the news on EQ Next.. has there been much talk of the actual game getting an alpha any time soon?
Aint nothing new about the world order..it's been playing since the day they put George Washington on a quarterDelivering Truth while the 10% deliver lies.
Nope the roadmap they shown has them adding more 'game' into Landmark first.
I'm honestly not eager to see combat get added to Landmark beyond something like hunting for wildlife to get crafting materials (furs, bones, etc). And even then, I'd rather not see the game get the usual MMO aggressive randomized spawn system. Something more like Wurm's "no aggressive spawning on claims" or Minecraft's "no aggressive spawns within X light radius".
couple pages back i think we posted the road map, and after wildlife hunting with the combat, but after that was pvp.
Yes, I've double-checked the roadmap recently (it was posted in February, no updates I can find since then) and it only talks about adding combat and that "things will try to kill you". Hence why I posted my concerns regarding what form that combat will eventually take.
someone may have gotten a closed beta invite for 7 days...can't say who though.

If you want, let me know and I can mail you a claim flag and a better pick I think. Otherwise it is quite a grind just to get to claim some land.
Is your offer of a claim flag and/or a better pick still available Beardbane? I can neither confirm nor deny that I might or might not have 7 day beta access, but if I did I would prefer not to grind!
I woke up to find a 7 day invite had arrived during the night. Currently at the pool with the girls while the game is downloading, hopefully I'll get to have a look later.
Any tips/pointers? I really don't know much at all so far.
I was able to gather the resources for a claim flag pretty easily and placed a claim on some nice beachfront property. Unfortunately it was also quite a run from the home spire and I am guessing I have to use the stations there to be able to make my own or make my own tools So one hint I have is build some stuff you know you are going to want on your claim before you run out to find one, unless you get lucky enough to find a claim close to the home spire.
I got my claim flag sorted pretty quickly as well, but the entire island was claimed, so I traveled to some tier 2 island and staked my claim there, also a bit of a run from the hub.
Preparing stuff in advance to take to your claim is sound advice, the thing is I have no clue what sort of things I need at this point.
So far I upgraded both the axe and the pick to their next levels, and made the bracelet that adds elemental ore chance. I guess now I'll start playing around with the actual building tools, haven't touched those yet.
If you are looking for a beta key go here
I think if you add additional keys to your existing 7 day key it adds to your left over days.
Sorry for the delay in responding. I've been out and about, but would be happy to turn over anything I can. I think I have a fair amount of materials and certainly an upgraded pick or whatnot I can offload. I have not updated in a while, but will try to update and pass along what I can.
You can have anything you want. Anything. You just can not have everything you want.
No worries. In my couple of hours playing I was able to easily gather resources for a claim flag and upgraded pick, although I forgot about upkeep
It was pretty crafty of them to give me a 7 day trial. I have almost pulled the trigger on a pack a couple of times already, whereas before I wasn't too interested. Filthy, filthy enablers!
Ya, same happened to me but I did pull the trigger. Got the $20 founders pack for me and my son.
I went back to February's posts and didn't see a mention of which server people are on. Or is that irrelevant for this game?

I picked this up due to the large sale on Steam. I'm poking about it rebellion server if anyone has a claim I can park near.
Picked this up since it was on a nice impulse buy sale price on Steam (ie: I still had that amount in my Steam wallet). Had a one week beta trial a couple weeks back and stuff was fun for while watching TV, but really had no incentive to create since it was all going away in a few days. Now will see what can be accomplished.
If I'm being honest, I mostly just want it for the sweet box.
I just love when that warm, white cream bursts in my mouth.
Aug 27th introduces combat!
It's about time. Yay!
How did I live before digital distribution of old, cheap games?
You did live before digital distribution of old, cheap games. Now you just play games.
There are a ton of changes in the latest patch, including armor and 35 new materials.
Have they put in the option to let us remap keybinds yet? Because that's one of the two most painful things about playing this game for me.
I caved in and bought a founder's pack as they are on sale on Steam right now, so I have 4 beta keys to give away (steam keys). PM, Post or message me in Steam if you want one!
Signing up for thread, and of course hoping to get a key from Senkrad. Just watched the Steam trailer...very cool looking.
It's quite a bit of fun. My son and have the founders pack and played a lot in alpha. Set it aside for a few months now there's arenas, weapons, armor, Magic and more!
It's cool how the world building works.
i bought a Founders Pack moons ago, let me see if I have any keys.
Roo - I have an extra key if you're interested - let me know.
Anyone else - I have extra keys as well.

BTW, do your claims still expire after a few days? And do they still require constant materials fee?
I would guess yes, based on the little bit I saw when I let my son login and run around. That is the reason I doubt it would be feasible to try to build anything, as I would forget about it for a week and then lose all the work!
They are nickel-and-diming and gating the f*ck out of this game. It is making me very sad.
It is also making me very concerned about EQ Next no matter how much cool stuff they are demoing.
Is it really not enough money following something like Guild Wars 2's business model?
Diablo 3 seems to be doing fine as is Minecraft and League of Legends, Dota 2.
What about all of those successful games screams I need more micro-transactions? More pay walls?

Ya I don't expect it to last in this house.
After a few days after buying something awesome it disappears. Mind you the land for it and all the materials are stored in your inbox for you to reclaim a spot and replace it.
I like to be able to step away and not be so tied to a game.
