Default Blast from the past!

Hey all!

Guess its been almost two years since I hung up my hat from EQ1, I have been back from time to time trolling the forums. Its nice to see everyone still around and doing well!

Anyway, as I am sure most of you have guessed I will be back for the launch of EQ2 and hopefully a long time after that for some fun times. I am leaning a bit twards good currently but I also want to play an Ogre again!

Once we figure out who will be going good/evil and have picked a server make sure to post so I can be sure to get online and join up with everyone again. Would be great to see all of the GoV'ers again!

Gummy

Can we trust the annonymous thumb monkeys?

Gum I'm pretty sure that eventually the staff at SOE will realize that forcing player to pick good or evil based on there race is a really dumb idea and change that policy. Haha nothing is funnier then parking my huge ogre in that little Halfling bank, right inside of the door and watching the Noobs run for there lives when they open the door! Good or evil shouldn't be based on what you are but who's playing and SOE will realize that and change it eventually. I hope.

But anyway when i finally do make the change to EQ2 you can expect me to be there,

I thought you could play any race based in either city. Just if you decide to play an "evil" race in Atonica you will have to "redeem" yourself by performing extra things and likewise for a "good" race playing out of Freeport. If I am wrong someone in beta let me know, but I remember seeing this somewhere. I will look for it and post the link when I find it.

Yes its called the betrayel(sp?) quest. At a certain level range you can do this quest and betray your city for the other one.

Good to see ya again Gummy! Yeah, there will be a GoV in EQ2. They haven't released the server names yet so we're not sure what we're doing. Tho I'm betting that if there is a Veeshan server, we'll be there.

As for the Good/Evil thing, I was thinking of perhaps a good and evil GoV......just to cover all the bases.....tho like which server we'll be on nothing has been decided yet.

Have good side players be Guardians of Veeshan... have the evil side players be Betrayers of Veeshan.

To preserve the story for EQ2 there has to be good and evil... and im sorry... but Ogres and Trolls and DE's have never started out good... they been bad bad monkeys. So they HAVE to start in the evil city... but you can betray Freeport and head over to Qeynos around lvls 12-18 i think thru the Betrayl quest. This is also true for Goodie two shoes races that all of the sudden wanna be bad boys/gals.

This restriction in city choice is also not limited to race but class as well... you can't be a paladin in Freeport... Lucan wouldn't allow it hehe... so you'd have to take your Ogre butt.... betray your city... and join Qeynos to learn the holy strength needed for Paladin.

MMM.... Ogre Paladin... I shall bless my halfling meal before i eat it... YUM!

Just for the record... my main will be a Kerran Coercer... first alt will be a Troll Dirge (Bard).

Wow, good to hear from everyone again. Still a lot of the old crew hanging around! I just sorta got tired of EQ one day and stopped. Life was got a little busy and I couldn't spend as much time online, and well I am sure you know how it is I think the hardships of EQ just grated on me a bit too much one week, which is too bad since it is definately the MMORPG I have the most time invested into.

I spent a lot of time looking at this current generation of MMOs, and through a lot of analysis I decided EQ2 is the one for me. I was leaning twards WoW for the longest time, but when I finally thought about it the game has evolved from one I was really looking forward to playing into a game that has a lot of the features I have disliked in other MMOs. Honestly I think playing with the old gang again had something to do with me picking EQ2 also

The race/class choice for me is a tough one. So any input is welcome. I would love to go Ogre Shaman again. But as the race with the lowest starting wisdom I question thier viability. Any word on how they might play in EQ2? Also I have always had a place in my heart for Queynos so I would rather be good than evil. But I guess there is always the option of betray. Hopefully it isn't too hard to do. Here is the big list of things I am tossing around at the moment, I went with races I like then some classes within them:

Ogre/Warrior
Ogre/Brawler
Ogre/Shaman
Gnome/Sorcerer
Gnome/Rogue
Erudite/Sorcerer
Erudite/Priest

I will keep checking back for any news about the launch!

Can we trust the annonymous thumb monkeys?

From the guild charter:

"remember that everyone in this clan is bonded under one common goal. There is no fighting among Paladins and Necromancers, Rogues and Warriors, etc. We all abandoned our old beliefs when we entered the arms of Veeshan. We are her children now, and the only fighting we have with our own is done in fun and games."

I assume that is trans-racial as well!

That being said, I still have a distaste for barbarian shammys.
