As far as I know, it's the design devs that are opposed to it. The players that quit years ago cared about it, and their base is mostly 40-somethings who decorate houses all day and buy gear/spells from their marketplace/RNG crates. The hardcore raider and min-maxer isn't their target demographic anymore.EQ2 players will never stand for an ability crunch because they need to cling on to something that makes the game different from other MMO's... even if it's the worst combat system in annals of rpg history.
Game was pretty great at launch - mostly cause of the bugs and being able to invis everywhere and adventure. Used to love Tarton's Wheel as it went through walls when the game first came out. I was nearly invincible with a robe of invoker and screaming mace as a templar in T5 - shame i had 0.1 DPS. Eof was a really nice time to start though as that was a real big expansion.Man, I really do miss playing EQ2. Echoes of Faydwer was a great expansion to start in.
On the first TLE server, once people found out how inflated the stats were, there were literally lines of people waiting 20-30 minutes for the silly quest item to drop. I think you needed to click on something in like 10 different zones? Each one took half an hour to refresh for the next schmuck ? FunI remember being the first one to get Tarton's wheel on tle because everyone pretty much forgot about it since you had to buy a gem from some random vendor in freeport. It wasnt on eq2zam either only like eq2 wiki so no one found it for a while which is what I hoped for so that they didnt nerf it. Couldn't port thru walls but stats made it the best item in t5 pretty much
Yeah I remember doing it over on my alt and having to wait. Was great doing it before anyone else even had the quest starterOn the first TLE server, once people found out how inflated the stats were, there were literally lines of people waiting 20-30 minutes for the silly quest item to drop.
