  1. The expansion pack to EverCrack opens up new worlds, new characters, and tigers with boobies (finally!). [Feb 2003, p.94]
  2. There's one thing that really distinguishes the EverQuest phenomenon from all pretenders to the throne, for better or worse—difficulty. Slaving for weeks through one of the higher "hell levels" isn't just time-consuming, it's quite often toil.

    Verant also increased the polygon count for the new models that inhabit the island, and also increased the level of detail used for the new armor, weapons and textures.
  4. It's clearly stated on the box that it isn't suitable for inexperienced players, while those who are experienced enough to explore the new lands it has to offer will certainly find these areas to be extremely challenging and rewarding.
  5. EverQuest reaches a certain peak and maturity with The Scars of Velious, further solidifying the franchise as the premiere massively multiplayer online RPG.
  6. Brings back a sense of adventure which somehow got lost along the way.
  7. If you're already hooked, pick it up. Otherwise, the benefits aren't worth the investment. [Mar 2001, p.68]

    Scars of Velious is the single greatest expansion pack ever released for any game. Velious set a bar which Everquest expansions would never reach again. Expand
