Im writing a quick write up for those who were like me kinda wandering the mmo scene looking for a good game, I set up a trial account with EQ2 and been playing for 3 days and heres my take so far.
Its kinda overwhelming at the start, so many races and classes, unlike any games i've played. So hard to choose. Its very nice and refreshing as some of the classes seem quite unique and the races are nicely detailed with diffrent racials which makes the game seem that much more unique.
The combat isn't in sync as ames like WoW or WAR, but the realism in graphics is much more detail, which would cause the combat to look a little out sync. The graphics are just more intense, and has some pretty cool animations. The combat still looks good, and because the animations of spells and abilities makes the combat not seem so hack and slash.
I haven't got into the crafting part yet, highest lvl is 9 (lol) but the amount of gathering between mining and forestry, gathering, fishig and trapping makes me believe the crafting will be very open with lots to make as in the starter areas with all the nodes.
It does seem kinda empty at times, the lowbie areas are very barren at certain times, it seems most people are playing at aaround 6-7pm Est and on. Im assuming because of work which leads me to believe a more adult community which is good. So if you log in and it seems kinda empty hold your head up cause its probably the time, I mean theres so many races and classes that the rerolling of classes in this game would have many people more then happy starting a new character.
High lvls are always looking to help out, constantly I see in the lvl 1-9 chat people are willing to run lower lvl chars through instances. Which is a great way to lvl and gear up. So it seems the help is there if you need it which is a great resource when starting a mmo.
Thats all I have for now, like I said im 3 days in a trial account, and unless I hit a cray retarded problem with the game (which I doubt, I mean it would have to be so bad its not funny) I will be picking up my time card at the end of the week.
If your sitting on the fence of this game, try it. If your not attached to an mmo and haven't played this try. I mean 14 day free trial account is more then enough to give you an idea how this game works.
Currently I have played 3 classes necromancer Illusionist and Inquisiter and right now im torn between the 3. So far im leaning towards the illusionist and inquisiter.
Thanks for reading and enjoy everybod, see those in game and hope this helps somebody sitting on the fence, even if its just 1 person.
Enjoy : )
