  • Summary: The gods have returned and the mortal realm shifts with their influence. But a new presence walks among the gods, a malevolent force released into godhood by the follies of mortals. Unbound by the laws of the pantheon, it leaves corruption in its wake and threatens to bring the entire pantheon crumbling down. The only hope for Norrath hangs on the very mortals who have unleashed this upheaval. EverQuest Prophecy of Ro includes the following features: Player-set Traps: Control your battles before they even begin by deceiving your opponents with a new arsenal of player-set traps. Spheres of Influence: Transform the world of Norrath by creating magical spheres of influence to thwart your enemies or aid your allies. These artifacts will create a localized area where the rules of the game can change. Destructible Objects: Interact with and destroy pieces of the game world leading to a new level of interactivity within the game. Chop down doors, tumble walls, and destroy encampments. Buff Filters: Decide which buffs you would rather auto-decline with the new buff filtering system. New Missions: Battle your way through over 30 new missions. New Creatures, New Environments and New Encounters: More than 25 unique creatures, 7 Zones, and 6 Small Instances. New Spells, Tasks, Disciplines and Trade skills. [Sony Online Entertainment] Expand

  1. As a status-quo expansion, PoR's not bad, but the twice-a-year-pace of adding zones that are swiftly obsolete isn't helping the game out. [Jun 2006, p.88]

    Interesting areas with a few new dynamics. New tradeskill trophies. More of the things we've come to enjoy, but not all roses.

    At best this should be a patch. Why pay for it... surely this is what your monthly subscription is for. This "patch" includes an overhaul to alchemy. Buff filters mean you dont have to click off icons so you can get more buffs. About time! 30 new missions is bad due to the overpowering effect these have had on the game. One character created 2 weeks ago is now 70th level but doesnt know how to interact with the game due to the unrealistic missions given. 7 new zones.... i have not entered into the last 2 expansions let alone get time to explore the new one. Not mentioned in this is the new bank slots you will obtain. Only good thing. Due to recent patterns next paid for expansion due in september. But why do we have to pay for new bank slots and upgrading of the tradeskills that are integral to the whole game. Sony have really lost touch with the market. If you dont buy the expansion the monsters are too tough to kill due to super powered armour that is easily accessible in the latest expansion. MONEY! I would not recommend keeping up to date with these.. wait 6 months and they will be one third of the price. Expand
