I saw this video last year. Though I don't play EQ now, I thought the abilities and game features being put into Everquest Next look fascinating, especially the ability to effect the environment around you, both long term (damaging the area, etc) that gradually over time returns to its original form, and also permanently changing your environment in ways that makes the server you play on different than other servers.
If this gets released for the Mac, I may try it out. One of the things about EQ Next, is that it is going to be free to play. That helps too :)
