I returned to EQ after being gone at least five years. I knew there'd be a re-learning curve but I'm still very lost! Still trying to arrange my windows to how I like them, figuring out which ones I don't need, trying to remember how to set up spells on my hot keys, etc. I know I have pieces of armor that contain spell effects that I can click on but I went through each piece I'm wearing and in the bank and don't see that info listed anymore...or I was just too overwhelmed to noticed....lol! I think I ran back and forth through Butcher Block several times and kept missing the path that took me to Greater Fay. Finally arrived in Kelethin and stocked up on food & water to turn off that annoying message. Don't even get me started on how to use the map. I recall there's a trick with that but after turning on and off all the different "levels" I decided to revisit that later.
In the midst of trying to figure out how to open my inventory I received a pm from "somewhere." (I vaguely recall a way one can search for various classes/levels, etc. - heck if I know where to find it - but was likely how I was "found" since I was in my guild's hall (I didn't realize when I left I was still in a guild!!) and was the only person there. The person asked if I'd like to join a group going someplace I'd never heard of. (Seriously, I used to know how to play this game - I began just shy of six months after the game began and played daily for seven years, took some time off, returned after a few years, then left again.) I thanked the person for the invitation but explained I was new and very lost. The person said that was ok, just join them and keep them healed (I'm an 80-something Druid). I said at this point I'd get us all killed!
So!! Fun to be back...I think when my brain fog clears a bit I need to sit down, go through my equipment piece by piece to become reacquainted with where the pieces are that have spells attached to them and speaking of spells...I have a gazillion of them - fortunately neatly organized but I need to figure out which ones I'll need regularly.
No real question here except to say I'll probably be living on this board for a few days. ;)
