Subject says it all ;->

MOBs, lava, trees, it all kicks butt.

Zoning into Naggy's was quite depressing ;->

I wonder if there's something in particular about Lavastorm that
they chose to give it a new look? Given the title of the coming
expansion, I could imagine that it ties into there.

I suppose they could be revamping the graphics in all zones, a few
at a time... Nahhhhhh.

Two new zones hanging off of it. Marked on the updated map, but not
open yet.

Look to the north of Lavastorm, there's a new zone to Broodlands.
Right now it's closed but obviously it's related to DoN expansion next
month.

Didn't think to take any pictures and still seems low level.
Everything was green to me at any rate.

Definitely better looking though.

Zoning out of it into an old-graphics zone like SolA is definitely
jarring.

Not sure what level. Most of it was green to me at 43, with a few
light blues here and there.

There are still entrances to SolA/B, Najena, and Sol Ro, plus the
new sections. SolA/B are no longer in the same places relative to
each other, though, so I'm not convinced the internal connections
between A/B still line up realistically. Ah well.

There are also some more new quests that yield req level 40 items,
like the ones from the recent DL/OT quests. (Except the new LS items
are all/all. E.g.:

Intricate Tool Belt (Waist)
AC 10 STR 7 CHA 7 HP 40 Mana 45 SvD 10 SvM 5 SvP 5

Lucky Miner's Gorget (Neck)
AC 9 DEX 7 STA 7 WIS 7 INT 7 HP 45 Mana 40 SvD 5 SvC 10 SvP 5

There's also a back item similar to those, and apparently a ring
(but I haven't gotten that yet, it requires 4 Fiery Ore and the
goblins in SolA weren't forthcoming with the stuff :-).

And another quest not listed on Allakhazam yet:

One good thing about the new mob: no more ugly butt crack on the
goblins!

At least two of the new DoN zones branch off Lavastorm. They're marked
on the new map.

Yes, the link you give deals with the first step of the Head Miner's
quest, which yields the cloak. The page also mentions the start of
the second part, which is even easier: take the status report back to
the Royal Clerk, get a receipt to take back to the Head Miner, and get
the Gorget shown above.

Druid ports make it very easy, but it's not hard in any case unless
you're KOS in Ak'Anon. :-)

Yes, the new mobs look much nicer. Again, this makes it all the
more jarring when you zone into SolA/B and see the old goblins again!

Have to agree, just writing up a piece for my character's site (yes, my
character has a site...I like to write up stories of events that happen
to him...) on my visit to Lavastorm last night to take a look. I didn't
make it far into the zone, but what I saw I liked.
