I am playig the trail version of EqII and it's hard to tell if I will like the game. It seems incredibly difficult so far. The monsters are all very strong and seems that you can only defeat monsters at a lower lvl than you. Then again, I have very few items, so perhaps I am just that weak. I still have quite a few spots to fill for items/armor, so I hope that it becomes easier as I fill them.
One thing is for sure, your better items come from monsters and a couple quests, certainly not from Merchants.
