Game Update 42 isn't your usual home-grown update; it's almost an expansion unto itself. With this onslaught of information, you'll gain access to Adventuring as well as Tradeskill Epics, the introduction of three gods from Norrathian lore, a new means to interact with your pets, a connectivity window to know how the internet weather is between you and the servers, a means to better search the broker through effect name and some VERY helpful household items, including a couple to permit you to show off your hard earned equipment!
All 24 classes will be seeing some new quests and items implemented in Game Update 42, in regards to Epics. These are certainly not your momma's Epics either; they'll test your skill and knowledge of Norrath. Some items touch back to FAR earlier times, so deep knowledge of history (touching on EverQuest lore and even going as far back as EverQuest Online Adventures, 1000 years in the past!) will really help you in that progression. This does indeed mean that lore junkies will be getting a feast from all directions, and answers to some long-standing questions!
