Considering the popularity of Erollisi Marr, the goddess of love, I always thought that she taking worshippers again would come with a lot more fanfare. Instead it only came as another announcement in a paltry patch note. Said patch note even announced in their site either!
In any case, Grulog (pictured above), my troll dirge can finally worship his chosen deity (and yes, it isn’t insane at all). It also means I won’t have to build a custom, non-functional altar for Erollisi Day whenever I build Grulog’s house. As for the quest line, I tried to do it but in the middle of the second one the servers crashed and stayed down for a long while. More than I was willing to wait. But going from what I was able to do I imagine it is like all the other deity quests: doing something completely tangential to understand better the deities’ “teachings” and thus getting closer to them. Oh, well. I am just happy Grulog can worship her!

I have no idea what this all about, but… yay, I think? Everyone knows that the world needs more good-looking romantic trolls or something. ^^
It is one of the unique systems to EQ2. In that game you can actually choose a deity to worship, which in practice means doing a questline that unlocks miracles from that deity that you can use. The miracles are like very powerful spells, or used to be powerful as they haven’t been updated in quite a while, that are related to the deity’s sphere of influence. So, a god of valor would have miracles more related to tanking and protecting others. A god of healing, would have spells more related to healing and so on. The system is slightly more complicated than that but that is the gist of it.
And Grulog isn’t exactly a romantic…. Unless it involves some tragedy that he can use for his operas (which is how I roleplay him or would roleplay him if I still roleplayed. :p). It is more that he believes he is the child of a male elf and a female troll (which is highly debatable if you know his story) and in EQ2 one of the things half-elves are called are “Children of Love”. Hence, Grulog believes he is a “child of love” too (he thinks he is a half-elf-half-troll) and thus worshipps the Goddess of Love. 🙂
