Are the low level mage pets on test/live servers the same as they would be on a TLP at the start? Or do the lower level pets get buffed as well as the expansions are unlocked?

Magician and Necromancer pet defensive values are decreased on TLP servers. Their defensive values are restored when LDoN unlocks. It's a moderate hit to Necromancers (mostly early on, the end game pets are mostly the same but the low level ones are much worse) and a small nerf to Magicians.

Whoops. Guess I'm behind, I had heard that wasn't doable, but I also haven't paid attention in a couple server cycles.

Level 1 Necromancer Pet dies in like 1 or 2 hits from a snake. They nerfed early pet HP into the ground.

Even Spectre pet has terrible hp, and mage pets are severely nerfed too. The casters are sturdier tanks than the pets for the most part.

Does spell research follow the new recipes? Or the old ones for progression?

New recipes, but some old world stuff still drops, if you're OCD you can save them and make practice runes from them I believe.

Every single TLE server, I save 100% of my classes research stuff, then get exactly 20 skill points and never any more. You'd think I would learn

Thanks - on Agnarr I was behind the initial push so just buying enchanter spells was fairly simple - going to need Mesmerization so when the puller brings 8 in lower Guk and drags his target right on top of me I can mez myself.

Haven't played since Uqua, what classes would be easiest to pickup and play being that out of touch? or should I just roll a cleric accept a life of CH rotations?

Just pick something random and play it for 2 hours and never play again. You are NOT going to put in the hours for end game or anything else.

Pick the class you have the most nostalgia for and then be sad that Bards aren't anywhere near as cool as you thought they were and your very existence is cheapened by everyone having boxed Bards.

You know, you keep bashing my class in every post. Going to be fist-a-cuffs soon.

Created a wood elf druid to start, just waiting to enter the world - figures at least I wouldn’t have to zone for a bit.

Busy all day today, busy most of tomorrow and have to go out of town for work all next week. Feel like I’m going to miss the best days of the damn server heh.
