I'm looking forward to an island of a dinosaur and the new landscape!
What I love most about EQ2 is the old school feel. Where the holy trinity rules and being a tank, healer or support means something. Seems to many modern MMOs the only spec that really matters is DPS. I love my enchanter, a few weeks ago I got to play in a real raid (its been a while) and playing a CC class changing the balance of the raid was a blast. Doing DPS but also my class role.
As for the new expanion, Kithcore Forest was one of my fav EQ1 zones. I am so looking forward to exploring that zone and seeing the modern twist added in EQ2 to this beloved EQ lore. Also really wana play the new race.
I love setting things on fire. Its why I MMO and why I love EQ2. For me, the time that stands out as most exciting is exploring. A few weeks ago I was all alone in Feerott with an alt and I was so freaked out by the noises and monsters, that I had the most fun I can remember in a long time. Also I love my house! No other MMO has a better housing system. I had a personal moment the other day when I made my first fridge. If you don't know, that's saying something 8) As for the expansion, Im not sure I am looking forward to it at all as I hate the undead. So I will say that what I am looking forward most in the expansion is getting new goodies for my house and gaming with my husband.
Eq2 was my first mmo. I remember my friend saying, 'why don't you try it' and I thought to myself pay a monthly fee for a game are you crazy!? I've been hooked on eq2 since and because of it have played many many mmo's.
One of my favorite memories is meeting new friends and joining my first guild. The laughs we had back then learning how to play and the teamwork needed was priceless. I'll never forget it and the game has just improved in so many ways.

Hope this will be a kickstarter for me to get back into EQ2, so much memory
My favorite EQII experience was near when the game first launched. I was playing with my step brother and a small group of people in Blackburrow, killing gnolls. Only he, myself and one other person in our group had completed the collection to understand what the gnolls were saying, the rest of the group were still collecting the pieces so all they heard and saw was yipping and barks.
My step brother was tanking, I was on my warlock who found a higher tier version of a spell that was basically carrying the group. I was also the only caster. Our main tactic was "nuke them before we die". During a hard fight the group started to panic, saying "I think we need to run." Confident that the spell would still nuke them and we'd win, I insisted we stay. "No, we'll be fine." Seconds later I see one of the gnolls yell "Get the wizard!". Suddenly my tactics changed.
"RUN! RUN THEY FIGURED US OUT!"
Since only 3 of us understood what was said the rest of the group was clueless, but my step brother fell out of his chair laughing.
"Id rather work on something with great potential than on fulfilling a promise of mediocrity."

I have been playing Eq2 sense launch (hearing it has been ten years blows my mind) and i would say Echos of Faydwer probably stands has my favorite expansion. The second of which stands as Rise of Kunark.
Echos of Faydwer brought the finishing touches of the massive changes from the kingdom of sky expansion and really offered the most life to all levels of the game. I enjoyed being offered a whole new route to take as i leveled my characters and the environment felt alive. With this expansion came also unrest which stands as the most fascinating and enjoyable dungeon experiences. Even though I died countless times trying to figure the puzzles out and almost rage quit multiple times through the process. On the other hand rise of kunark offered some of my favorite lore to the game with the ring of scale and epic quests.
The newest expansion has me excited cause its content seems to have taken a different route from the past few expansions in terms of content and lore. The content has me interested cause the environment is finally focused on new places and not this rehashing of old zones with new skins. This comes with an escape from alternative worlds and back to places we have known existed according to lore, but never went. This coupled with level 100 and the new A A s has me interested enough I been considering picking up the expansion even though I have moved on to other games and only play this part time and mainly to catch up with old friends in the game.
The memory I look back on the most is when I was just a level 1 Ratonga Brigand, running around in the City of Freeport. Thats when I ran into my old friend from Everquest 1. It was none other than Boomba The Big. That family is still in the pickle selling business.
What I look forward to the most in the latest expansion is exploring and finding more links to the past like this one!
The best times I had playing EQ2 were way back when Nagafen opened for the first time. My buddies and I frequently went out looking for small group fights in addition to watching our backs while clearing dungeons.
That beings aid, I haven't logged in much since. (And that was a long time ago) I do remember there being a bit of "magic" when playing EQ2 that other more themepark-centric MMOs shy'd away from. I think this has more to do with feeling like you are in a world that is a place rather than compact areas you are meant to see once and move along.
I have been looking to dive back into MMOs again and am interested in what the expansion has to offer... so tossing my name in the hat and hoping for the best!
