Excited to see where this goes!

My first real run at a MMORPG was Everquest. I joined up after several friends convinced me that it was worth the subscription, and so I could have conversations with them again since it was all they talked about. I joined about 2 weeks after the game launched. I was hooked in about an hour and I didn't put it down for 5 years. No game has ever come close to touching on what the original Everquest offered. Complete situational difficulty, no hand holding, horrific deaths, amazing loot, deep and hidden factions and reasons to group up. (server: Povar transfer to Xev at server expansion - Guild: Harmonium , main toon: Gelf Grifclaw - High Elf paladin)

I am seriously excited to see what this game will do, and if it can capture me again.

On a journey the road is merely a suggestion. Fare thee well.

    I agree. Im also a classic EQ player and to this day no MMO has delivered the wonder I experienced when I played EQ. The danger of exploring at night. The real fear of dying because it had real penalties. The satisfaction of unlocking new spells with a fresh DING because leveling was important and difficult which meant it was rewarding. And more than anything the importance of making friends and working together. To progress in EQ you NEEDED each other. You needed to work together in order to accomplish things whether it was xp farming or killing a named creature.

    In todays MMOs you can solo play from 1-max level and in some games levels come so fast they're meaningless because nothing is relevant until the 'end game'.

    No MMO is perfect, EQ was far from it. But AoC has got serious potential to shame the rest.

    No pressure, guys. ????

    Mazikar It's always a pleasure to greet and welcome someone who also enjoyed Everquest!  There are many of us here awaiting the arrival of Ashes. No game has excited me as much as EQ did.  I have high hopes for Ashes.
