Feeling behind in EverQuest II? SOE's taking away that excuse this week by handing you the reins of a free level 85 heroic character. If you're at a loss of what to do with that toon, don't fret, because we've got the answer for that too! The studio's also making EQII's free-to-play model more attractive by removing item restrictions. It's hard to thumb your nose at free, right?
We've got the rest of the week's top stories after the jump!
