Visions of Grandeur!

Visions of Grandeur Server Goals:
- To build an experience that preserves all the great things that we loved about EQ while smoothing over the rough parts
- Easy but not too easy, where you still have to actually play a little, but it doesn't feel like it's a job to progress and accomplish things
- Any class should be able to solo reasonably.
- Duos for minor raid bosses
- Full, balanced group for major raids
- Note that this server is very new and will need some frequent and continual balancing and tweaks to get it where it needs to be. Please post in the bug thread if you experience any wonkiness.

Server site: VoG Forum - Visions of Grandeur

Server discord: discord.gg/rAtFefs

Client Download - This is basically the NL RoF2 client, but some people had client issues, so I zipped up my directory. If you're having problems with this client, then I probably am too.

Spell file - If you're just having problems with spells, you can try out my spellfile without having to download the entire client.

If you're new to EQEmu servers:
- You'll need to make a EQEmulator forum account
- Click the verification link in the email your receive.
- Once logged in on the EQEmulator forum, click here to make a Login Server account
- Run the 'Launch Titanium.bat' in the above client to play, and log in with your Login Server account info.

Key Points/FAQ:
- Running on a dedicated server with multiple daily backups, stored offsite
- PoP is live
- 4 boxing is ok
- MQ is ok, active hacks are not
- Overall mob strength has been cut in half
- autoscribe/autoskill is in
- XP/faction gains have been boosted
- No death penalty or corpse runs
- Most locked doors/zones have been unlocked
- PHs have been largely eliminated through Vanilla/Kunark
- Removed some of the more annoying things mobs do (long duration cc/debuffs, teleports, etc.)
- Raid mobs respawn times significantly reduced
- Most fabled mobs are in with 100% drop rates
- High out of combat regen
- Spell reagent requirements mostly eliminated
- Pets can tank! (and can be renamed!)
- Mini-hub with translocators and noob vendors around the Soulbinder in PoK
- Free stackable Gate/Shrink/Invis potions as well as arrows/shurikens on the general goods vendor
- Pre-nerf things are fun and will be added when possible! So the following are in:
- - Manastone
- - Guise of the Deceiver
- - Fungi Staff
- - Box of Abu-Kar
- - Jboots
- - (If there are other pre-nerf things you'd like in, just post a suggestion!)

Starting it's own thread since the NL one seems to be dieing:


No autoscribe yet, but most/all of the spells are available in PoK.

I would definitely consider checking it out once this is in.

Anyone know where I can grab that specific RoF2 client? Gonna give this a go as I have nothing else to do!

the NL thread has a link to the NL forums which are now gone :(

The eqemu page says that the downloadable client from Steam should work. I tried it and got the blackscreen issue that seems to come up. People seem to blame it on resolution issues. I had similar problems when using p99, so I'm not sure if it's just a weird issue with my setup or something else. If you can't get it to work, I can zip my directory and post a download or torrent.

Cut and paste those into your browser for the full ROF2 download. (Unzip and dump all contents into 1 folder of your choosing)

There are minor things with that download. Like go to your eqclient.ini file and change SOUND=False to SOUND=True

Thanks for posting the client download links!

Also, autoscribe/autoskill is enabled now.

I will give this a try later today.

Are fabled mobs in? Named always spawning?

Named spawns seem like they pop every time, if not it's super duper high rates.

Fabled should be in. I'm not sure if placeholders are in by default, but if so I plan to get rid of them.

Added languages to autoskill, and made it so that you autospell/skill when you first load in so you don't have to slog through level 1 with no spells hehe.
