Grouping and camping

jimmydatwinjimmydatwin Member UncommonPosts: 68

Just curious as to whether or not EQ is played by finding a group and camp and chain pulling.  I am an old EQOA player and am looking for a game of that sort of mindless style and saw in a post in LFG that EQ may be one of the few options out there.  Also what are the odds of finding a group in low levels before the Progression server comes out (I would want to learn the interface before I started on that server).


Thanks for any input,

    Hey there; glad to hear that you are interested in EQ. It's a great game; though an old one.

    I've been playing off and on since '99. Yes, the game is very sit and camp/chain pull. This can be really fun with other people, you just sit and chat and gain xp. It's nice.

    Here's the rub; finding a group at low level now is rather difficult. This game is very very top heavy. Very.

    If you get Seeds of Destruction and use an AI group member; then things will go fast but you'll be leveling solo most of the time.

    I would still suggest playing; it's fun. I also played EQOA and if you dig that then you'll likely dig EQ.

    Pretty sure camp grinding is one of the main ways to level in EQ1. That's one thing it was famous for, unless that's changed. 

    However, I posted because I was just curious if you decided not to go with DAOC, and why?

    I did enjoy DAoC alot for the first 2 weeks, but in the end it was a little to dated for with not much quatlity PvE.  I had just finished the Darkfall trial when I tried DAoC and Darkfall just seems like a better option when I feel like PvPing so I subscribed for a month and still enjoy it(although it too has its issues).

    Yeah PVE has always been DAOC's weak point in my opinion. I pretty much only play it for PVP. I can't compare the PVP to Darkfall since I never really got into Darkfall. 

    For PVE I usually stick to games like the one you're looking for here - camping and grinding with a good group and lots and lots of content at our disposal.
