Nice to see you in game today (I'm the cleric called Brista you had a chat with).

It's certainly an entertaining experience and I love that fresh new server feel. I think the veterans out-number the new people but there's certainly plenty of both.

Saw you chatting in /auction. At least I assume Saylah there is you :)

I'm loving EQ2X so far. Mrs Bhagpuss and I are playing Silver to have the restrictions. We have Station Access accounts so we could have gone Gold, but that would have been pretty much the same as playing on Live, so what would be the point?

We made our own guild using two Silver, two gold and two bronze accounts. I can see why they are requiring a 1000SC token to make a guild, since they don;t seem to be placing any restriction on how many free accounts you can make. I didn't even need to use different email addresses.

The most interesting thing so far has been inviting two people from WoW into our little guild. The incredible number of things we take completely for granted that are utterly mystifying to them really brings home what a mountain every game company has to climb if they hope to snag any bored WoW players. I have to say that in quite a few cases there reall doesn't seem to be a good reason why things are done "this way" other than "they just are".

Anyway, back to raising Weaponsmith.

Can't post ?

Sorry about that, I sometimes get caught in the spam filter too. I don't see what caused it. I also released a comment from Grimmjack too. :-)

Yeppers that was me. Saylah is my Warden. The character I plan on leveling at this point. I had considered doing the Illy since I've never made it out of T3 but the forums aren't very happy with the state of the class and it's been like that for a long time. I really enjoy hybrids so I figured might as well start one in EQ2.

Since there's only one server, it's nice that we can run into each other. I bumped into three readers today.

Alysianah aka Saylah

Hi Stabs! It was nice meeting and chatting with you in the game today. A bit later I ran into two others which is always a blast.

Alysianah aka Saylah

Speaking of confusing... I hear ya. There are a few things that are opposite of obvious in EQ2 even if you've played other MMOs. The chat channels is the first of them. There's something very unintuitive about the way the work. I find it hard to tell what channel people are actually speaking in and sometimes I'm replying to them in the wrong one. The abbreviations for changing channels isn't what you'd guess at in some cases and it doesn't seem sticky. I have to specifically say which channel to chat in even if I've only been chatting in one. Is there an option or something to control that?

Getting to someone in a different instance of the game isn't obvious either. I had to meet up with a couple of people and I had to zone somewhere else to go out and back in so I could pick. Seems like a game with multiple copies of the same zone would have a command/feature to let you hop when needed.

Some vets are probably unhappy about the clarifications/simplifications being made but as you've said, they must do these things to encourage new players to stick past a trial.

Sounds like you're having a lot of fun with EQ2 :) Makes me miss the game a lot actually :(

Alysianah aka Saylah

Fun today could be burned out tomorrow. *Smile* I tend to a hit wall leveling in EQ2 but not worried about it at the moment. Just enjoying things.

I'm finding the game to be a fun distraction - rolled a 2nd character today so I can alternate between the two (Swashbuckler and Inquisitor) for a bit of play-style variety (and give a second tradeskill a try).
