    If there was any in guild drama I missed it. I think people have just been busy of late.

    I was out of town for a while and came back to a lot of stuff at work that's kept me preoccupied. Starting to get some time again now and working on a mage to add to my War/Shm combo.

    Wouldn't shock me if Hosix burnt out a bit, dude went really hard for a while there. Pure speculation on my part though.

    I'm about to start going after epics, is the cleric epic Zordakalicus Ragefire spawned in Skyfire or Naggy's Lair?

    He's a dude in Naggy's lair. Turn in the stuff and he turns into a dagron

    So no shard hunt in Skyfire?... phew.

    Thought they might be the updated epic quests as the Hand of the Maestro is in Hate

    Anyone else still playing? Server was in the 30s last night but Militant looks a little dormant now.

    Myself and a friend are still playing (each 4-boxing), though not for the next week while family is in town. We are working on time phase 4, stuck on vallon.

    I log in a couple of times a week for a few hours, my 4 box is in the low 50s and I'm having fun doing a self imposed progression thing.

    @Control Should really up the exp rate for AAs. I got a necro to high 50s and tried to grind a few AAs and its slow as fuck compared to regular EXP it seems. There is no way I would want to grind 2-3 hundred AA at that rate let alone a thousand or two. I would also add a few more ports, especially in Luclin. Some of those places like the gray are a pain to get to.

    Other than that its a good server. Been having fun running through all those zones like in 2000, lol.

    Can one solo in this with the changes on the server? Or is it still mostly group based? Only ask because I doubt there are a lot of lower level folks

    Haven't had time to play lately because of the holidays but I made it to mid-50s quickly twoboxing (poorly)

    Looking forward to wrapping up leveling after the holidays and grouping Kunark, velious & whatever you can do in pop

    Awesome. So at appropriate level one can just whiz through Lguk? Seb and such? That sounds pretty awesome

    All mobs have their HP halved and some of the shitty effects were taken out. Its definitely easier than live but still challenging to break certain camps, deal with adds and shit. Definitely better to two box. Its still manageable, like a SK and Cleric ive been running last two days. The cleric helps with the calms and of course the hraling and HP buffs. Just the sk is shit on the dps, so maybe 3 box would be the best. Tank, DPS, Healer. IS boxer has a setup where you can use hot buttons so you could set up a wiz nuke or magi with pets which were also buffed on this server.

    Thanks for the feedback! I haven't really tested aa rates below 65 since I figured that's where most of them would get done. Not sure how fast you're getting them in the 50's, but I think it's pretty reasonable at 65. I've been meaning to take another go at the porters (and a bunch of other stuff really), but it's been chaos here for the past little while, so I've been mostly stuck at putting out the occasional fire.

    Glad people are still enjoying the server :)

    Solo'd my warrior up no problem, actually found it easier than my SK, and a mage was super ez mode. But, I don't box, and since raids are grp content, I am pretty much done for now. Need to recover from farming Raldukans in Umbral Planes.

    Any of you guys using modbot, e3 etc for your boxes? Looking for ideas for RoF2 client.
