Is there a way to buy subscription time with the Daybreak Cash? I swear there was, but can't find anything on the website or in the game.

SOE used to have 3X station cash promotions once or twice a year. If you combined that with the Walmart promotion where you would get 2000 points for a $15 dollar game card, times three you would get 6000 points for $15. So people would wait for that promo and subscribe for an entire year for $30. Once too many people started to do that, the 3X events and being able to sub with those points basically ended.

I played a bard for years back in the day without melody. No way I'd ever do that again. It's just too tedious.

I imagine there are easy programs (autohotkey?) That can do what melody does and be undetectable anyway.

Damn I'm unsure about Mangler or Selo, or if I want to do it at all. Either of them have less assholes / training idiots / botters / hackers?

I'm pretty sure you don't want to play EQ. Start on selos and switch to mangler if ya don't like it.

I could be wrong here, but my understanding is that mangler has significantly more botters and krono farmers and selo has the hyper competitive tryhards. I'd pick the ruleset you like more...

The most telling thing about Selo's population is that they did not release the 2nd spill-over server. No doubt, the server is vibrant and well populated, but it doesn't feel over crowded by any means. Having the 3 extra expansions to space people out is a total TLP game changer from the cluster fuck of just old-world zones.

It feels like there might be 2,000 active players on Selo. I have regularly grouped with the same names randomly over the course of the last week by just joining pick-up-groups or adding random LFG's. Right now, the server population feels about perfect.

I have another hot take

GEBs is pronounced "Jebs"

Ah yes the Jolden Efreeti Boots.

I played on Saryrn server and most people just said "sair-in." When PoP came out, I heard Saryrn referred to as "Sar-ee-ern," which made me take note of the r before the n and it kinda blew my mind.

I have another hot take.

A little bird has told me there is a special sweet wedding tonight on Mangler at the docks for two roleplayers.

Mangler population is perfect. Definitely recommend playing there if you don't mind 3 months per expansion. 1-50 generally takes about 3 days played.

Well fuck I might try mangler out after all now that I have time. Can you pay for daybreak subs with Steam bucks by chance?

I realized I posted this in the Selo thread and not the main anniversary one.

My buddy in Orlando messaged me on facebook with:

"in a starbucks doing some work and theres a hobo with two laptops and he's multiboxing eq
i like to think he's one of the OG hardcore players that just never quit and this is where it has led him
😅
"


So admit it. Which one of you hobos is dual boxing at Starbucks?

Just a general FYI, but DZs don't have nerfed experience like devs and others have mistakenly said. If you're not raiding the content and have a six box or a steady group, they make for some great dungeon running.
