Who is the resident uberguild now. It isn't that one that got the 8 day suspensions for exploiting raid lockouts recently and crying like pussies is it?

According to guildprogress, Township Rebellion on Luclin, and Machin Shin on Xegony. MS is the guild you are referring to though , so ya they're up there in the least.


Not sure how accurate guildprogress is, some guilds stopped updating (for now). Could have swore Realm of Insanity was up there too, but it looks like they're not updating.

Yea, looks like you guys stopped updating after Fippy.

Will be interesting come server merge though. Public raiding looks to be the furthest along on Tunare, from what I hear their rules are extremely strict. The rest of the server look to have 1 guild each at about same spot as Dili, LU, OD. Least what hearsay tells me.

Triality from Maelin server was the guild that exploited lockouts and got banned for 7 days, although later it was reduced to 3 days. Supposedly other guilds have done what they did (i.e. bring raid mob to 0%, mains drop task and add alts, then kill raid mob and loot before 2-3 minute window expires on mains... doing so gives alts the lockout and mains can re-do raid mob again) but Triality was the one that was banned.

You people that keep saying eq will be dead in a 2 weeks, 2 months whatever are fucking retards, you should apply to fox news and join glen beck over there spreading bullshit, I don't normally say shit but have you people honestly realized how many times you've said the same shit over and over, get over it, if you don't enjoy EQ anymore get it the fuck out of your head, Don't try to convince everyone else of it's demise, it very well may end up beating out all these start up mmo's in the long run. shut the fuck up please/ thanks!


oh and PS. I'm xfering my toons back to 7th from stromm unless something drastically changes, that i doubt

You can not substitute a comma for a period, even though there was enough period in that post that an entire pack of Tampax wouldn't soak up.

Ease up soldier. Nobody thinks EQ is going to fall over dead. Then again, only about 3 people plus Cicely even play that game here anymore.

From what I see. They keep consolidating servers drastically but only adding one service new.

is it really necessary to talk about punctuation if you clearly understood my view point, its just that. It's just a clear point, it really doesn't matter either way, it's just old and proven wrong and wrong again about this supposed demise. I guess anyone playing will know soon

Sure it does. Understanding your point is one thing, but observing such a catastrophic disregard for punctuation such as yours is generally a sign that the opinion of said poster merits as much weight and consideration as a turnip. While this is not always the case it is frequently so.

You would be surprised as to how many ex-Lanys players are still playing Everquest, at least on Seventh server. Far more than the amount who post on these boards. In fact, I would venture to say (no offense to anyone) that these boards are far far closer to "death" than Everquest is...

yeah some servers were a bit low on players but you were still able to find groups at higher lvls to do things. Way i see it is that with the servers getting a "fresh breath" of "new blood" it could help things out alot. May get some older players to come back and play again. The games really not that bad, only problem is if the players have patience.

Leveling is quick and easy but lots of guilds still want you to have fuck tons of AA and some groups require you to have zone access and shit. I dont really see the game ending THAT soon lol.

Holy moly they are adding two flavors of DPS mercs. If they pump out more than the tank merc does, Jesus Christ the game really became /afk to glory. This is glorious news.

Oh and something about more inventory space/bigger bags. I have had the same set of Bag of the Tinkerers for over a decade and used them on more than a dozen characters. Wow.

Hotzones:

20 - The Lavastorm Mountains
25 - Blightfire Moors
30 - Firiona Vie
35 - The Gulf of Gunthak
40 - Goru`kar Mesa
45 - Natimbi, the Broken Shores
50 - The Broodlands
55 - The Bloodfields
60 - Barren Coast
65 - Arcstone, Isle of Spirits
70 - The Elddar Forest
75 - Loping Plains
75 - Blackburrow

Don't recognize half those names. Are those better than the ice themed collection of shit that the devs cried about when players said the list sucked?

EDIT: Ok I lied. I recognize seven of them and only one because of EQ2.

The big rumor is that a lot of people are going to transfer to Maelin server once the servers merge. Take it for what it is worth.

I am undecided if I am going to be leaving Seventh or not. Unfortunately a lot of raiders don't know about how much DPS a magician does in raids, because they have the tunnel vision of rogue/wizard/berserker in their mind. So most guilds aren't recruiting magicians... which makes it difficult. I might go to a server and see what the fall out is, but again still undecided.

My preference is to stay with my current guild. However we are in a serious fail performance right now- it is really sad how far we have fallen :(

If you are referring to the Maelin transfer, I don't know. I did transfer off of Seventh/Tunare... one thing I will say is that this merger did bring a lot more people in contact with each other (obviously). Guilds are able to add lots more bodies to their raid roster, lot more groups are happening, zones aren't as completely dead at the 85 game anymore... seems like a win/win for most, if not all.

The biggest issue I am hearing is that there are no enchanters around. Anywhere. And that is what every guild seems to need. Go figure...

Well I stayed on Stromm after all. The merge with luclin seem to have worked good. A lot of people online and bazaar prices are good (to buy) for the most part. Thats a plus for me because I am a bit behind in gear =)

So they nerfed Mayong into a normal server, which means now you can xfer to and from it, and also FV and Zek are in for some big changes as well.


Next few months should be interesting, but it's scary going to server select and seeing only a little handful of servers to choose from.

My Everquest theory:

They're cutting servers to reduce upkeep/maintenance costs, to free up some money to help fund Everquest 3 (aka Everquest Next).

I'm taking an EQII break, especially after the GU57 weirdness, and playing a bit on EQMac which is surprisingly fun. It reminds me a lot of old Lanys. Pretty nice the game has been preserved at PoP. Pretty interesting so far.... Also, what is this new server Trakanon I heard about.....?

Hey everyone btw!

Cicely from Vita Infinita? -- Hey it's me Lunatech, you probably don't remember me but I used to be a bard for Circle of Truth and friends with many people from your guild (ages ago).

Anyway I'm starting back I have a monk now at 70 and looking for some old Lanys people. I might consider transferring from FV soon.
