The next game to go F2P is....

Starting in March, when EQ turns *13*, it goes F2P using a similar model to EQ2 (free/silver = limited classes, races, character slots, etc).

I am gonna bring Aranash back to life in EQ once this hits!

Theramor 01-30-2012 03:42 PM

Unless you buy the Paladin class, you won't be able to...

Free Races - Human, Erudite, Barbarian and Gnome.
Free Classes - Warrior, Cleric, Wizard, and Rogue

Characters created prior to the Free to Play date will be grandfathered in according to the fine print =)

Good to know!

Was worried I'd have to buy a couple of character/race packs...

Too bad I lost all the usernames and passwords of people whose accounts I used for 2-boxing!

i still have 3 accounts worth of user/pw :eyebrow:

Probably going to load this up for some casual fun.

i may have TONS of free time for the rest of my life....

welp... I logged in... can't use any of my gear (it doesn't apply any stats, I can't click any of it, all says I need a gold membership to use? Nah... not happening).

I guess you get what you pay for ;)

Edit: Just noticed i'm 1 post away from 3000 posts... but the real reason for the edit is DAMN I missed that theme song!!! I didn't know I missed it, but hearing it really brought back memories :)

Tantolar 03-17-2012 06:27 AM

Enyil, I think the reason you can't use most of your gear is the augments. Lots of augments are considered 'Premier' items now. I mostly have basic augments, so most of my gear is still usable, but I had 1 piece that isn't. After removing the augment, it is usable again.

Tried to log in this morning but all I get is this stupid could not establish a connection error...***sigh***.

Tantolar 03-17-2012 09:08 AM

Oh, for those who haven't logged in for a long time, make sure you do /claim and /veteranreward to get any veteran's rewards you might have coming. I think there's a fair amount of stuff for people with older accounts.

Theramor 03-17-2012 02:56 PM

Connection issues may be due to the new Launchpad they're using.


Tolewyn 03-17-2012 08:44 PM

Finally got in. Had to move my eq install to another folder and run the patcher from the website. Was an interesting experience. Can't see the stats on any of my gear and got a pop-up inviting me to upgrade to a Gold membership about every 15 minutes or so. ***sigh***

Enyil 03-18-2012 03:50 AM

yeah... the mouseover event doesn't seem to be firing on items.... I have to either control click or alt click (i forgot already) to see the stats...

I don't think i'd care about any of the limitations, except that I don't know anyone still playing, so I can't even log in to simply chat.

One thing that brought back some more memories was going to explore Qeynos. I still remember my way around after not logging in for 7 years.. It's crazy how that works!
