Well, I know someone used to post these regularly, and maybe with the progression servers, maybe a few old timers are back and can help continue the tradition.

I am on Coirnav, started around 2 weeks ago with several alts, I could not decide on what class to concentrate on. But after this weekend I think I have decided on a monk.

Saturday, I started a group at Orc 1 on Commonlands with my SK and my pocket Shaman along with a warrior. After 2 other SK's joined, I decided to switch over to my monk who was level 5.

That group pretty much went on all day with people coming and going, people returning, etc. I took a few breaks and would come back and find an open spot. Later in the afternoon we were starting to out grow the Orcs, so we moved to South Ro and started doing Crocs till the evening hours. I ended up getting the monk to level 12.

Sunday I joined a group doing Orcs in South Ro, again with the Monk, after about an hour or two that group fizzled out. Later I started another group doing Crocs and later we attempted to move to Upper Guk, with a pretty low average level group. I was lowest level at 14, highest was 18. We got into the zone and started moving in, but wiped at the top of some circular stairs with 4 mobs at the top. After regroup we moved to another area and did pretty well until our tank unknowingly went AFK and you know what happens then. Monk got up to level 14 even after all that and I really didn't get a chance to play that much.

During the evening I got to group up with a Twitch streamer who was leveling up a level 9 necro in Commons, so I grabbed my SK and we did the orc camps for about an hour while he was waiting for a raid to start.

Good Times!

I ended up logging into Firiona Vie, and talking to a few friends. Didn't do much in the xp department, but was nice to connect with old friends again. Other than that, been playing ESO (Elder Scrolls Online) a lot lately.

We love seeing a non-admn start these threads!

I've literally logged into EQ maybe once in the last 3 months... this coincides with real life good things taking up all my time and then some.

EQ-wise I am sort of stuck on what to play on what server, having a lot of stagnant things in a lot of places and no desire to redo original to PoP with slow XP.

Completely understood. I hope we all have that problem. As well as other games and hobbies we are interested in. I had been away for a good while and one day I decided to log in a character on Test just to see what was going on. And I picked an alt ranger that happened to be sitting in Iceclad, I thought it would be cool to see Iceclad again. So I log her in to have a look around. She is like level 60 or so, so I knew I could just wander around and not worry about killing killed or something.

So I log in, start to take a look around and lookie there... Fabled Stormfeather is flapping about making a bunch of noise, so I figure what the hell, I don't play this character much and if I die, no big deal. So I engage, end up taking it down and getting the Fabled Eye Patch, I actually got pretty excited. Not like the first time my little ranger got the eye patch, but still.

That little experience kinda sparked my interest again and I started reading some forums and found a few players that streamed on Twitch.TV. I saw some were on P99, but I wasn't really interested in that, but a few were playing on Agnarr and Coirnav TLP servers, so I looked into that a bit more. I started right after POP was released so never really had the "classic" experience, I decided to go for it and started some characters on Coirnav. Population is good, find groups is fairly easy, so it's not a boring lonely solo grind. I just hope I can keep up since my play time is not what it used to me.

Yea I can understand that. "Been There Done That". I'll have to see how long I last, but so far I am enjoying it and yea the XP is a bit slow, but with the grouping it makes up for it. And actually the slowest has seemed to be levels 1-5, after that, once you group up, it starts to fly by pretty fast.

Now that I looked up Fabled Stormfeather and see it is level 60, it must not have been my alt 60 ranger, it must have been my main 85 ranger. I doubt the 60 could have handled it. :P

Ran An Epic Request and foolishly didn't start with my class fight - for the BL there's this stupid green ore that you have to try and pick up before the mobs tether you and drag you off to a holding cell.

Part of the problem is its target box must be like, 1 pixel, other part of the problem is the caster mobs hit you with some sort of spinning flingy thing doesn't help in the slightest trying to click that damned ore.

So, I failed it enough that now the mob that triggers the whole thing doesn't trigger it -- not sure if I have any recourse other than to drop task, and start over...after going to 15 zones and failing the final task.

Word to the wise on this one, do Acrylia Caverns first.

Wow, sorry for the bad luck!. I've got the epic on a few of my characters on live and test servers, but never tried the BL epic. And don't think I have ever even rolled a BL. I hear a lot of people talking about how fun they are to play though. I might roll one here on Coirnav when the become available.

Obtaining Epic 1.0 was easy -- solo'd at 71...which is bit like saying I solo'd a Gnoll Pup in the Qeynos newbie yard -- BL 1.0 has always been the easiest epic to get.

No, this is An Epic Request from some melancholy HElf chick in N. Felewithe -- which, if successful *ahem* grants a weapons ornamentation aug to change appearance of weapons to the BL 1.0. *disclaimer there's also 2 more rounds for the 1.5 and 2.0 cosmetic aug.

BL was the second class I rolled -- started as Monk back at the release of LDoN and got tired of looking for buffs, heals, etc. BL has the self-sufficient utility I like and has been a blast to play.

However, Erudite Shadowknight is fun class combo for me -- there are some interesting challenges.

Yea, I got most of my epics via solo or box with my own characters and a few MQ's I think. No big deal. Never tired 1.5 or 2.0's.

Didn't make a 5/21 weekend thread, I was out of town so didn't play hardly at all. But we have a long weekend coming up, so I'll be posting on for this next weekend.

Good luck with the BL Epic!

Can't play normally on weekends, don't want to ruin my faction with the GF... although, am almost maxxed, maybe I can take a few hits.. Smiley: grin

Just remembering, oh, the raids on Povar, Saturday EST...ages ago! I simpy say "Time equipped" Smiley: cool I think my dusty Wiz on Povar still has some of that gear...

Created a 85 heroic druid on Drinal a couple of weeks ago, and am still getting my feet wet. Since most class specific sites have disappeared, or noone updates, it was a lot of reading the spells description, paying attention to the "stacking group" comment, reading Lucy...

Today I think I got it though, a nice setup for moloing (with a healer merc, don't laugh at me, hehe) Updated Fanra with some of my findings, and we'll see how that works out.

Tomorrow I hope to have some time to play with my Beasty or Ranger (low sixties) with a friend on Drinal. I hope work lets me get away for at least 90 mins... Smiley: mad

Be safe all! /wave

Yea that is why I stopped playing in the first place - wife faction was taking a big hit. Now we are both older, she's busy with several of her own hobbies, so I added EQ back to my hobby list. As long as I still make time for us, we are cool.

I am originally from Povar. I was in <Lucky Insane> which never really raided when I was in it, but we did a lot of grouping.

On some (probably majority of) servers, that is the only way to get started again these days. Hardly any groups for anyone under 100. So molo or box/molo. That's why I decided to go with a Coirnav, it is a lot of fun finding groups in Crushbone again or Unrest. I spent two hours last night pulling Unrest MainRoom. It was a blast. :)
