Just started playing. Looking for some others who play.
New expansion comes out mid next month. I will probably pick it up.
I used to play when the game first came out, then I took a break for a year and came back. Then I took a break for another year and came back. Now I'm on a break again, planning on going back. I keep leaving because new games come out.
one of my favorite MMOs, that i dont have time for ..
got a trial account but leveling from scratch seems like way too much of a pain in the ass
got an 80 myth troub, with tso raid gear on pvp server
60 pally on RP server
ill probably start playing again next tuesday when halas is the new starting area. also gonna check out them battlegrounds.
lots of quests to level from, not too tough
leveling in this game is nearly as fast as WoW...
Decent game now it seems, worth giving a shot if you are doing nothing.
EQ is semi boring right now, I only log on to raid, so I gave Vanguard a shot and was disappointed, then I was in the middle of grabbing DDO when I noticed the EQ2 trial on the station launcher. It's massively improved from launch, and the community seems decent so far, the trial does suck as you can't do much but you get a feel for the game.
lots of stuff to do in the game. all types of quests (collection quests - find stuff in the wild, completes a random set, turn in for XP/, GREAT community..i havent found anything similar except perhaps Vanguard (fail game is FAIL).
very deep game, quality content, and tons of fun.
i just dont have time for the game
pvp in eq2 is also pretty amazing, i would reccomend trying it out if you are into hardcore.
enabled my trial account like a week ago and i've been having a blast
I will probably try this with at least a trial account just to fuck around on until SWTOR or Cataclysm gets closer to release.
i haven't played for a few years. it took up way too much of my time and money
how is eq2 in comparison to classic eq? only played eq till kunark
i heard eq2 didnt do that well
Eq2 is significantly easier and infinitely more deep. I loved EQ1 and i've been loving eq2 for the past 3 weeks or so that i've been playing. Can be hard getting groups other then night time because everyone seems to be max level more or less.
Although soloing and questing is a viable option, so whatever.
hows pvp? do you get rewarded for killing others?
They have bgs, but they pop pretty infrequently and only 1 of the 3 ever seems to get picked. however, you do get tokens for participating, and the items you can get with the tokens are pretty uber. Bgs are also only 30+
on the pvp server pvp is the shit, you get rewards, and its quest based pvp (kill this many of the opposing faction) you get items for the tokens you get for the quest. they are just as good if not better than raid armor.
all the pvp on that server is pretty much open world, and alot of people participate in it. www.eq2flames.com check the nagafen subforum, weekly people upload pvp videos.
the way pvp works in battlegrounds is different, but its still fun
