That is exactly the idea of this server. An idea 19 morons didn't understand. It is one thing to not like it, but they just don't get it which is pathetic, especially for people that live on this forum.I'd love an EQ server that makes the old world a lot more valid. You could spend years just extending classic, making speedbump places like CT, The Hole, Kedge Keep, Najena, Paw, etc. into significant destinations that take some effort to complete.
That would be awesome but that sort of thing would need a team to rework parts of the game. Or at least a few people. Just making a server that is mostly accurate and stable seems to take quite a lot of work for one person.Basically re-arrange every xpac to be a lot more like PoP,
you get a character flag from slaying Najena (less trivial) such that when you hail a guy outside Sol A you earn an AA group FR rune on a 10m duration and 18hr CD. Anyone can zone into Sol A, but those with the buff will just have an easier time of it because the goblins proc AE fire damage. So your group of 6 can wreck fire goblins for an hour and later fire giants and fire dragons (fire dragon will shred the rune a lot faster ofc). The whole structure of the challenge and the reward is earned by an individual, but is more valuable for a group so socializing is desirable. Maybe you can earn an AE version of the buff to use for more populous events.
Exactly. You get morons like Lenas who call people retards, yet every single day he is doing Velious raids hoping for that one item to drop and everyone else is hoping for one key item too. But only RNG decides if anyone gets anything useful, and that is one raid out of 90. And that is one expansion out of many. Or there are people on ez servers where 1 person can solo everything you get max level in a week etc. EQ is great but the progression was designed to milk people for money, not to be fun, and it harmed the game.So many emus are either intensely grindy with RNG deciding microscopic progress or way too easy with super fast respawns and loot being super common.
