Everquest rocked, note I said ROCKED…. I was a beta tester for this game and I have to say my first impressions were that I was not very impressed. But, by the time I got beta 4 I was hooked. I rushed out and bought my copy, pre-order of course, and loved it. I can remember to this day at level 23 camping the J-Boots in Neirak (sp) dungeon. My mage character was awesome so powerful, and hours, upon hours, upon hours, upon….. You get the picture, of solo game play. I hate groups, always have. I could take on anything after time, but also seemed to notice that my level 40 or so character was starting to get weaker along with my pets.
SONY systematically destroyed the game. They killed all the power classes (mages, necros, and wizards) and beefed the week and hybrid classes. They allowed stupid people to get away with stupid things, yes you druid kiting sob. There really should have been an age requirement and a test to play this game, but ultimately it is all about the $$”s. I also forked out the cash for the expansions.

Kunark was one of the first if I recall correctly: it added a few classes and a few new zone. This was pretty darn good as the crowded world got a little less crowded with the introduction of these new lands. A lot of people left the normal zones and went away. This expansion added a lot of new goodies and textures.

Velious, Luclin, Gates, and PoP all came out when I was getting out of the game. I spent a lot of time in the Velious zones and really liked the stuff that came from there. The player ran auction areas where nice too.

I got out of the game a while back and then revisited it on player ran shards. That was nice as it really allowed you to explore places and characters, along with weapons and items that the normal person would never see. If you have a lot of time to kill, I mean 1000’s of hours I would recommend this game 100%. If you don’t, just keep on going. This game requires an investment of time that is beyond belief!!!!

Oh, the graphics are awesome, the music and sounds are awesome the movements and animations are awesome the monthly fees are not!!!
