    I see posts and irc comments like this and think: how the fuck can you be an MMO vet (as evidenced by your interest in playing a 16 year old game) yet be frustrated by launch issues.

    35 is pretty impressive at this point, not many very far ahead of you. Server stability is annoying, but like Eidal said, shits classic

    I don't have the time for it right now, as excited as I've been for Uthgard to re-open. I played DAOC at release, actually quit EQ for it for a while (traded my 56 Wizard account for a DAOC beta account!). And then loved Uthgard. I have ridiculous nostalgia for DAOC. Whenever I hear that main theme that you get on loading character selection screen, I can just taste KFC Popcorn Chicken Bowl. Haha my mom used to get me KFC a lot when I played DAOC and now they are linked. Anyways, please post more screenshots/stories/updates! Doesn't matter how trivial it seems. I must play through you.

    Buddy switched to Earth theurg and was like well I screwed myself we can't duo as well anymore after switching from ice.

    Until I started using that confuse song and the mob just rapidly switches targets and never gets a single earth pet down.

    We're ~lvl 24-25, RR1L3 (praise Long Wind 1) with jobs n shit. Aw yis.

    Got my Merc to 12, so caught up with where I left off on Reaver. About this level is where the game feels like it starts to pick up which is nice. Should be on a good bit today, push towards 20. Merc name is Flobeet. Lets kill some stuff pals

    EDIT: Doing weaponcrafting as well, can barely keep myself with blue weps atm, but eventually it should even out. If you need lowbie weapons let me know

    Also found a really good website for finding mobs for killtasks.

    CapnBry's Bestiary

    Gives you some really accurate results on where to find stuff, super nice

    Thanks for that.

    Was in an amazing group last night in frontier, but the leader wanted to form a BG to do Tepok Mine, which was of course terrible. Oh well got 14 - 16 in about an hour before that.

    No clue, but people are already hitting the cap.

    Really depends on the class you play (some are faster to solo to 50 and some are just better at getting groups) and if you get decent groups.

    Is everyone playing Albion, or spread across the realms? Considering installing and poking around for nostalgia, but would prefer to be where people are to join a guild/groups.
