For those of you who may have missed the update on the EQPlayers website, Lower Guk has been revamped as of today as part of the special Living Legacy promotion, and we have an update direct from the front lines via fearless reporter Roks Madness on some of the happenings!
As you can see, there are quite a few players checking out the newly updated content in Lower Guk; it's been ramped up substantially in difficulty, with the trash frogloks hitting for around 1300 damage on tanks. However, the loot is very rewarding for the difficulty, as you can see in the screenshots below. Many of the old favorites from the zone have been buffed up to the quality of level 75-80 group content drops, to coincide with the increased difficulty of the dungeon.
If you've been taking advantage of the Living Legacy promotion, it's your chance to relive one of the early favorites for dungeons in MMOs. If you haven't been taking advantage of it, maybe it's time you did! The Living Legacy Lower Guk update will be running from July 7th, 2008 to August 4th, 2008, so be sure to give it a try while it lasts!
Overview of Guk
An ancient ruined city located off of Innothule Swamp, legend has it that Guk was once home to the trolls. The upper part of the city is fairly intact and home to numerous frogloks now. The lower section of the city is where the most ancient ruins can be found. Rumors persist of an undead legion of frogloks being built up in the depths of the ruins.
The citadel of Guk has many rewards for those successful bands of adventurers that brave this dangerous region. The frogloks here have been toughened by the years of fighting the trolls of Grobb and make excellent adversaries upon which to hone skills of blade or spell.
The Ruins of Old Guk are perhaps one of the most notorious regions upon the whole of Antonica. Many an adventurer has lost their life here, but a few have successfully emerged to bring forth ancient treasures out of the dank tunnels.
Lower Guk is an excellent training ground for seasoned adventures of all professions. Here, one may hone their skills in preparation for more treacherous battles.
So, what are some of your memories of Lower Guk? Did you prefer the Live Side, or the Dead Side?
