Given that yesterday was April Fools Day I'm a little leery about posting this. I logged onto EQ2Players last night and discovered that Sony Online Entertainment has decided to copy Blizzard's policy of allowing World of Warcraft players to radically change their characters, including changing gender and names. EverQuest 2 players will be able to go to the Station Marketplace and purchase a Potion of Amnesia to change their name, and either a Potion of Disgenderment or a Norrathian Witness Protection Potion to change appearance and gender.
Currently, EQ2 players can pay one gold piece to go to the barber and change their appearance. The official EverQuest 2 site did not mention prices for the potions. If this is not an April Fool's joke, then I'm going to have to be on the lookout for some of my "favorite" people changing their names.
