    Wife and I played a little over a year ago and had a blast for 4 months and then we hit end game. At end game people were so cliqueish we just could not find people to play with. People were helpful and friendly, offing money and taking time to PL you. Endgame, fit in a raid or dungeon run? No way, been doing that with the same people for 6-10 years. Its one game I was really upset we had to walk away from.

    The game play combat is still so clunky. They should have taken that everquest next money and give this game more fluid combat. Every time i login i remember why i quit as soon as i start combat. The game world is so amazing yet it sucks to play in it. The only thing i really like was the housing and crafting. I have a beautiful home in this game and i crafted all the furnishing for my home.

    I have a few characters on Stormhold.  I quit logging in about two weeks ago but just checked in yesterday and I plan to start up again with EoF next week.  Hopefully some of the issues we saw in KoS don't follow us into EoF.  I also tried logging into my characters on AB but was too lost because it's been a few years so gave that up real fast.

    I'm starting a new Paladin to reacquaint myself with the gameplay, then I'll switch to my main Paladin once I am comfortable again.

    The world is going to the dogs, which is just how I planned it!

    I played until right before Age of Discovery.  In a raiding guild.

    The thing that put me off was when they introduced the new "Raid Tier" and the Normal Raid gear completely usurped the Heroic Raid gear I had on my character.  And Heroic Raids in EQ were *not* easy especially since the game doesn't have Add-Ons like DBM that hold your hands through the raid.

    I just lost all motivation to play after that, and just unsubbed.  The game went F2P soon after.

    I did install it since to get into it again, but the engine runs so poorly on my new laptop that it's virtually unplayable.

    Yesterday. And I'll be playing again in a few minutes. They have the best housing system on the market and I find it relaxing, especially when I'm seriously stressed out to the point of tears and a stomach ache like I have been for the past year. I rarely quest unless it's to get an item or recipes for my housing. I have three houses at the moment, though I'm about to tear one of them down because I don't like it since it doesn't remotely compete with the beauty of what I've seen elsewhere in the game and I think I can do better.

    My conjy has just finished up most of Butcherblock. I have a couple loose ends to finish there, Kaladim to work through, and then it gets tricky because options open up. I could go on directly to Steamfont or I could level lock and hop over to Enchanted Lands or Zek and follow that. I'm thinking Steamfont and then see which branches to work through after that.

    On a side note I bought some more Archon mercs and unlocked a couple of the rarer npcs. I tried them, but I still think Gonok is the best out of them all. At level 32 he's got 26k HP and kills faster and keeps me up better than both Veldra (rare) and Tyfon (uncommon). Maia is about as effective, but has a third of the hitpoints. I need to fiind out how they acquire and add stats.

    Really the only thing that has kept me away is the terrible engine. I have extremely good hardware and can't run this maxed out at over 30 FPS or so outdoors. It's completely unacceptable.

    I just completed my third piece of Visionary armor this morning. The Experimentation crafting at end game certainly makes crafting a lot more challenging and rewarding!

    I played the heck out of this game for years. Got burnt out and left but I still have really good memories. In particular I found this to be one of the most immersive games for RP at least on the A-B server.

    I have returned a few times, recently at the progression server launch. I usually find it great the first week reminding me of times where everything had not gone full-themepark and enjoying a game that is actually advanced. The following weeks I am reminded of all the good things and the bad things and how eq1 is superior on almost every level. I get bored with leveling and grouping, and by the one month mark I only really do tradeskills which is awesome.. until I realize that is kindda pointless as well.
    Still.. I had an awesome time from launch day and 3 months forward - So why do I not like it now ? I think I got hypersensitive with themeparking (aka railroaded story driven games) from playing those so much.. Probably why I can't play mmorpgs anymore; but one day .. maybe .. there will be a mmorpg that turns away from themeparking ?

    I always want to, but there's always something else too. /shrug
    That's how I am.  The last time I played was probably about 3-4 years ago. It was a fun game back in the day with a lot to do.  I even enjoyed Legends of Norrath as well. However, every time I think about re-installing/re-starting I just remind myself I have other things to play that are slightly (or vastly) more fun and just as time consuming.  Then I just place it on my back burner for another 6 months or so until revisit the idea again.

    I played right up until Sentinel's Fate. I was also in a casual raiding guild. It was great fun at the time. However, after Sentinel's Fate released the majority of my guild left and the game really went down hill for me. I really didn't like what they did with Epic weapons either. I worked my ass off to get my Epic and in Sentinel's Fate they changed how they worked. An Epic weapon was basically useless unless you completed another long questline.

    Really put a bad taste in my mouth
