Qeynos as it was from November 8, 2004 (minus a few missing quests/NPCs/voiceovers to the addition of a few new NPCs) to the Game Update 64 (GU64 tba). Qeynos is beautiful, full of charm, character, humor, and an old-world feel. Wanted to make this video as a way to remember. Change is a constant, as is nostalgia.
Captions are a work in progress.
I despise annotations and captions on a video, so will label a few things in the video with time index links (see below). I encourage you to watch the entire movie, and then use the links as reference points :) **Denotes the start of a city zone or burb.
