II am thinking about joining the server, trying to pick what to play. I am going to have to box, because I will have limited play time at first- from when my son goes to bed to when I go to bed, 2 or 3 times a week. I will eventually want to raid when play time frees up a bit, would like to main a ranger, rogue, or sk. I did not like AA’ing on live due to the time needed to find a group, so I want to have a party where I can AA efficiently. I was considering the following: Ranger, cleric, mage Rogue, cleric, mage sk, cleric, mage ranger, cleric, enchanter rogue, cleric, enchanter sk, cleric, enchanter. With the goal of AA’ing efficiently I think I will want to use the enchanter over the mage, and learn how to play the enchanter decently, and use charm effectively? Is a ranger or a rogue more desirable to a guild in the luclin / pop era? I enjoyed playing a ranger in classic/kunark/velious on the pop locked progression server, but ran out of play time and my internet connection started acting up (spectrum needed to run a new cable to the house, fixed now) and I gave up playing before we hit luclin. I fear the SK will be harder to maintain good dps with, and a ranger can tank well enough for exping (especially with slow) that I think the SK is out of contention for me. Alternatively, I have a nicely geared 60 ranger on the POP locked progression server, should I just go that route? Downside is that I can only 2 box (only one toon per computer) and wouldn’t have the enchanter. I have no idea if the community is still active on the server. I remember for the short time playing EQ Mac that you had a wonderful community. Thank you for your input, hopefully that wasn't too long winded :/ My background playing- too long, don’t bother reading?: I played a paladin from 99 to 2004. I enjoyed the paladin (I loved to tank, and group heals were awesome), and HATED the low dps. I got elemental flagged before the guild fell apart backflagging. I was in 3 guilds, always tier 1.5 to 2 guilds. My guild skipped ST (other than a few small scale, get one or two prismatics) to try to catch up in luclin, and skipped VT and raided POP targets instead. I always questioned that decision, but trying to solo farm shards was a nightmare. I played a sk / shammy combo on Al’kabbor for a few months before they announced the first shutdown of the server. Made it to level 49 or 50. HK sucks once you hit 40- is it still the preferred exp spot on this server? The SK seemed to be low dps like my paladin was. I played a warrior on Fippy to level 50, was awesome being able to group again. I played the ranger to 60 on pop locked progression server, guild was all current content- we were breaking into ntov and had got aow <50% when I left. Had epic, clicky haste cloak from posky, most of my suit of skyshrine armor. I loved the ranger, I could tank effectively for groups, and loved the DPS. I feel that I excelled through classic and Kunark, but in vellious I started to lose ground dps wise vs the other rangers (went from #1 or 2 ranger to #3 dps wise). Have a 60 cleric box, was nice to be able to grab a few others and start a group rather than LFG.
