...and I have to say, I am actually enjoying it!
Ok...so yeah, the graphics are very "Atari" compared to most modern MMO's, the combat is also very lacking (Auto attack)...so I made a monk so I could at least hit a kick button when fighting to give it that familiar feel I know from modern MMO's. It's actually funny, because I haven't played EQ1 since 2004, so I forgot a few minor details...or I should say, remembered too much of modern MMO's...because my first fight I started hitting attack and wondering why I was barely swining before I realized (remembered) it was auto attack and I was just turning it on and off lol.
Anyways, WOW it is actually a breath of fresh air. I haven't seen 1 quest yet (although only a lvl 2 character), and can freely roam wherever I please...with a lot of caution of course. It took quite a bit of fighting to get to lvl 2. In the time it took to get that lvl in EQ1, I would have been lvl 10+ in any modern MMO easily. nice to progress a bit slower and not have to feel in a rush. Besides, there are SO MMANY mobs walkign around, soem of which aggro easily...you kind of have no choice but to take it slow....or die and have to run back naked to loot your corpse (If there is anything on it worth looting).
Furthermore, I was fighting a yellow con mob (lvl or more above me) and losing badly, so I turn to run, but suddenly go to full health and see a blue aura around me. i turn to see...yep, another player HELPING me out! High lvl too. He buffed me out big time to make me a super Iksar (Ah....good old SoW (Spirit fo Wolf).
So...been playing for about 3 hours worth of playtime and just wanted to share that sadly...EQ STILL has things modern MMO's lack that make it fun...and having a ball! Only down side so far is I haven't seen a whole lot of people. But it IS a starter zoen after all.
