EverQuest Next, utilizes a more stylized art style in order to reach a variety of design goals. By using a stylized look and feel, EverQuest Next attempts to evoke an emotional response from players, envision heroic fantasy, and age more gracefully as time goes on. For example, shadows can have a blue tint to them. Because blue is a cool colour, it helps to show contrast between shade and heat. Light still moves realistically, however.
