In the recent Producer's Letter...

"In March, we’ll be celebrating EverQuest’s 15th Anniversary in great form! Still hot after all these years! At SOE Live, we announced that you’ll have new Race/Class combinations to play. We have been reviewing your feedback on the forums about what you would like to play, and one combination that frequently comes up is the Froglok Monk. So we’re going to be creating that new race/class combination for the Anniversary."

I vote tongue lash.

Probably will just be Dragon Punch. I don't see them getting fancy with it.

Froglok Monks will at least be better than Drakkin. Question though what Deity?

Mithaniel Marr is the only Deity for Good frogloks. When they added the corrupted frogloks (necro, shadow knight, and rogue classes) those got Inny. So most likely it'll be Mith Marr.

/shudder

I feel like a bunch of people who don't play monks got together to troll us.

I applaud this.

If you've ever used a guktan illusion while monking you know the incredible awesomesauce that those animations have.

They have unique animations for all of our special attacks. It's great!

hmm...
wonder what monkly quests would there be?
I always wanted a monk quest that was tied to old world monk lore/quests. would be interesting for the froglok monk to bridge human & iksar quests.
- like having the treant fists and/or the whistling fists be part of a larger questline that involves all the monkly factions -the silent fist/ashen order, the scalefist, & drakkin.
- Maybe have both drakkin and Froglok share the same monkly order & help it rise.
- have froglok represent courage/despair & drakkin courage/neutral/despair (based on heritage)


other thoughts:
froglok have the round house kick animation already in game. its unique!!
would like to see froglok flying kick be a somersault kick (the reverse backflip heh)

They could allow both Inny and Mith monks. That could be entertaining. I doubt there will be any quests; the best they can probably hope for is a new trainer in the Rathe Mtns.

It already is a backflip! It's been that way since guktan illusions have been in the game.

Froglock or Guktan? The post does not clarify even though sometimes they are used interchangeably.

Yes, I agree. Load of crap.

I don't see why all the hate towards frog monks. I understood the Drakkin hate, but most people I know have always thought Froglok/Guktan should have monks. I am thinking that those upset about this would hate any additional race getting the monk class.

That's pretty much what it is about. I don't mind Frog Monks, personally. I hope they actually give a good selection of new race/class combos.

I'd be 100% OK with Gnome monks... I'd even like to see some Ogre monks! Can you imagine how cool that could be?! I guess I'm really just biased towards the original races (I know, Iksar weren't in the original release.) I just don't like the frogs and kitties and drakkin.. the first two are too "cute" and the third is far too "emo."

I hate humans and drakkin too, I'm an equal opportunity evil monk specist.

Pretty much. Hating the other guys is kinda our thing around here. It gets tossed around so much it's like it's part of monk class as much as it's part of the community. The more races they add, the more watered down the hate becomes, until it's just not worth it to make the joke anymore.

hating all non-iksar monks is a requirement of the class, see the official description, it's there, I promise

Yep. I predicted frogs. It was a natural choice due to fact that frogs already do alot of fancy kicking, frogs have very few classes and the class goes along well with their good god.

Gnomes never made sense from a lore perspective.

Maybe they will be cool monks like Qeynos monks and they will be Agnostic.
