I'll probably stay on Ragefire and transfer over once they open up transfers. No desire to poopsock it and be downing Nag/Vox within the first week anyways so no real reason to start over.

Have they said anything else about server merge/transfer options for when the population dies out? I'd rather not be stuck on a dead server ala Vulak come Kunark time.
There was no population issue on Vulak until Luclin. Even in Luclin there was still training going on to claim the best AA grinding spots. Which should surprise nobody, since Kunark and Velious are the "golden age" expansions. Luclin and AAs start to weed out people and the job gets finished once PoP is done.

Not to mention that Damdor demoralized the server by racing to unneeded bosses just to spite others.

Even if TL is staying on Ragefire officially as a guild, that's not going to prevent a few motivated individuals (who could be from any guild) from creating three mage groups and owning Lockjaw for a period of time.

There's no reason not to, as once you have a 50 on Ragefire what else is there going to be to do for six months? If you're gonna mage farm one server for six months, why not two? Naggy and Vox loot is going to have value at least until Velious.
I'm aware - just answering conspiracy theories about that specific - nature abhors a vaccuum there will be someone there, just not TL.

Anyone want my account with my 22 nec on it I guess? Only character on it, on Ragefire. No reason letting it go to waste if I'm gonna roll on lockjaw.

edit: it has gear even, fbr, marnek, runed circle, grass bracelet, etc.

I plan on transferring my mage over when that becomes available (he's my EC alt anyways).

Hmm if they open transfers up it may be worth keeping then, but makes it kinda silly to roll necro again on lockjaw.

Been awhile since I played EQ, can anyone give me a breakdown on the tanks in this period? Pallys still more def oriented and Sks more offence? Warriors still relying on procs for agro? I ain't expecting to raid tank or anything, just grouping.

Ranger is probably the best grouping tank for a good while to be honest - cheapest aggro spells, plenty of HP/AC with recent changes, good DPS, some ability to self heal.

Pally > SK > Warrior.

Go Pally unless you want FD, then go SK. Since you don't plan on tanking for raids, do not choose warrior.

Can't you just put in the melee aug that has the stun component? All the threat you need.

Hahah. TR room in CB is hilarious. When I was LFG in CB, I would just sit in there and watch the entertainment.

I'm currently running pally: root, heals, paci, LoH, stuns, and hp/ac buffs seems pretty powerful, esp in a small group. Was just wondering if I was overlooking anything.

I'm not kidding when I suggest ranger - seriously if you doubt me, roll one up on Test or something and play it with appropriate gear only - they're damn solid man.

Depends on what you value most in your tank.

Tank Breakdown:
DPS- Ranger, Warrior, SK, Paladin
Tanking/Agro- Paladin, Ranger, SK, Warrior
Pulling- Paladin, SK, Ranger, Warrior
Utility- Paladin, Ranger, SK, Warrior
Downtime(least to most)- Warrior, Ranger, SK, Paladin

I'm very tempted to roll a tank on Lockjaw, but the idea of playing a melee class in classic is just....ugh.
