Anyone currently playing?  If so what character and what server?  I will probably reroll an evil character and do the crazy betrayal quest again.  Wheeeeeeee!

I am currently on Steamfont, primary character is Jeboob.  Yes, the random name generator came up with that.

Signe, Midden on Steamfont.  Fleas (Righ) also on Steamfont because why would he go to some other server if I was on Steamfont?   undecided  Why?

I believe that it was randomly generated because Righ got "Anal" on why of his rolls.  Now if it were Paelos who had said that, I wouldn't believe it for a minute!

I may very well start playing again somewhere around the New Year. I enjoyed it while I was playing. Moving across the country and then being away from it for 3 weeks made me just not care.

The grind is gone from this game if you look. I just went from 44 to 47 in about 20 hours /played over the course of a month. If that isn't casual, I don't know what is. I was grouped 70% of the time - half of that in pickups - and I don't tradeskill ever. However, my character is flat broke as casual adventuring doesn't generate enough cash for meaningful upgrades. I am surviving on higher level guildies throwing me their trash.

Oh, and since this is a roll call thread I play on Permafrost as Nitz Hairspritz, 47 zerk.

I have never played WoW.

Well, if anyone wants to join a guild full of littlings, we're on Steamfont. I think the highest member is 16 (bunch of defunct higher members in the guild though). I plan on sticking this out at least through February as no new games come out til the 3rd-4th week of that month. Join us on our grind to victory!

Were my daughter not here, I'd join you.  Though I have to admit that days on the slopes followed by nights of board games does beat the mmog grind.

If you're still playing on Jan 5th, I may join you... but I'm not optimistic that you'll last that long.

I resubbed to CoH/CoV and lasted about 2 weeks.  I'm not optimistic that I'd last longer than a week in EQ2 myself.  Especially on a second go at it.

I was planning to give atitd another go when the 3rd telling starts... but the grind there has me reconsidering. Someone make a game that doesn't bore me after 2 weeks.  Is that too much to ask?

I am considering the resub.  If I do it will be the first time I've resubbed twice to a game.

EQII, for me anyway, has a nagging, "There is almost something there that I like." thing to it.  Now if only they could figure out what that it is and go with it.

I do have a level 23ish rat boy mage; but I am sticking with my 16 rogue troll dude.

Not sure when you quit, but lemme give you a brief run down on some of the changes.

First off the combat is a lot different.  Think Star Wars Galaxies combat changes, but without the suck.  They altered the core mechanics so there are more group encounters, yet solo players can also get the XP easily.  Asian character models were added as well;  shit, the first question out of Schilds mouth to me was about this.  Skills received an amazing overhaul as well.  Finally, quests are easier to find and are worth more XP.  On your map/radar a circle appears when you are near a quest NPC.  Such a small change, but it gives me a throbbing hard on.

There are tons of little changes as well; for example TS now has a griffin station.

All in all I am going to give EQ2 a 8/10.  Once PvP is implemented this may go up.

All of my chars are on Grobb.

Main chars at the moment are 58 Swashbuckler, 34 Conjuror, and a just started 21 Warden.

I was nicely surprised with the newbie experience (at least on Grobb). I started getting group offers around level 11 and continue to probably get a tell every 30 minutes or so from a group looking for a healer.

Even with minimal vitality I've managed to reach level 21 in around 14 hours /played.


I really wish they would start new characters off with 100% vitality though. I was tempted to start the new character and then not play him for a week in order to build vitality up.

You group a lot, eh? And have a higher level character with good gear, or you wouldn't see pvp as a positive.

My characters are on Lucan D'Lere because I'm a dirty arpeer. But I'm also a solo player, so you will probably never see me on. Lvl 17 or 18 Not-Necro and a lvl 19 Not-SK, plus about 3 or 4 lvl 6 folks that got stuck on the orc quest on the newbie Isle.

In case you didn't know you don't have to complete the orc quest on the newbie isle. You really don't need to complete any quests other than the first that gives you your class. Just go talk to the guys by the docks and they send you on your way.

Yeah, I know. I like to actually play the games I pay for rather than just pass stuff by. It's why I don't pay for EQ2 (well, I do have the station pass, I guess). It's not that I don't mind grouping for the occasional quest like that, in fact I probably grouped more on the Isle than in any game besides playing EQ with a couple rl pals back when. I just had a hard time finding groups when those characters were ready and got tired of waiting around, as I hate waiting around irl, let alone in a game (part of my anti-grouping bias). I was a little OCD about being a completist on the Isle, it was a great minigame.

Still remember the difference upgrading my spells made (via crafting, when crafting gave you auto-results instead of being dependent on the components, because I could barely make most components and it was a drag crafting a gajillion things without worrying about quality), I was able to solo the boss group in the tree after doing that. It was a wee bit too tough beforehand, but easy after.

Ill have my main back into the guild soon as I finish off one mother fucking mob.  The infamous "Dancoed of the Pine" may not be the worst game mechanic ever introduced, but it was enough for me to slam my fucking mouse down and terminate the game immediately (fuck camping, control + F4 pwnage).

Seriously, I spent my first hour roaming around Bramble Woods looking for this elusive son of a bitch.  Then I got annoyed, and utilized google.  Guess what?  Not a single pair of people, current or past, agree on when and how this Nessie fucking spawns. 

So 30 more minutes flipping between websites and roaming around some more (I am a rogue, praise the Goddess, and would of ripped my own eyes out if it was not for tracking).  Nothing.

So I wander around some more, pull my pud, contemplate reality, pet my cat, and watch The View.  Finally I got fed up and went to kill some stuff elsewhere for a half hour.  I return, and guess what!!!  Nirvana.  Its Dancoed!

Only he is level 17 Heroic, with 3 up arrows.  I am stuck at level 17 until I can kill this piece of shit embryonic leakage.  So we begin the PUG dance!!! Lets see what winners we can find to help us today!  A level 13 rogue and a 15 cleric.  Fabulous.  After a half hour the 15 cleric mentions he would not mind bringing on his 34 alt.  Wonderful!  Now we wait for him to recall to town, go to his house, switch his character, and come running from the TS.

I bet you can guess what happened.  Seriously, I wish I would of had the frame of mind to get a screen shot.  Mr. Shiny blade ass kicker is like 2 screens away when Dancoed goes "poof."  Well the websites I read earlier were correct about one thing: Dancoed despawns on some sort of arbitrary measure.

Its a good thing I am mentally unbalanced and a catass to boot; I swear 4 or 5 more situations like this and I may even roll an Elf!



Thanks for letting me vent.  Believe me, this was the short version.

I picked up my widdle gnomey-womey because I couldn't face the Isle of Refuge again.  Mordy the wizzie to be, guilded and rawring to go.

Oh, and the SOGA models for gnomes totally suck arse.  I selected my SOGA model at the character screen and after 10 minutes of tinkering got something that wasn't totally gay or appallingly ugly.  Log in, turn on SOGA models, and guess what?  My gnome looks like total shit.  Total, total, total shit.  Hopefully changing some graphics LoD options will fix it but what ever happened to WYSIWYG?

I only chose it for the rising blood pressure it causes other people to suffer, and that large models in EQ cause the auto-following camera to go into apopolexic spasms when you're in a dungeon/building.
