Kumbhakarna doesn't die when he hits zero hit points; he falls asleep and eventually wakes up at 25% he...

With that pesky SOE Live embargo out of the way, we can finally stop speculating and start talking about EverQuest Next! And if you're a sandbox fan, you're going to love it because when SOE declared last year that it was doing something really, truly different with EQ Next, it wasn't kidding. EQ N...
