EQ2 is my choice as best MMO of all time. My favorite times were going into tough dungeons with experienced teams. I wish it had a better F2P model.
The new expansion would let me visit EQ2 again.
I love Everquest 2 i have met some great people. Best time i have had is when questing or doing heritage quest with quildie's.
I am so good, I backstabbed your face!
One of my favorite experience was seeing Vision of Vox
Killing her in EQ was a blast and see what became of her in EQ2 and the whole quest chain to learn to speak like a dragon.....blow my mind
This looks really cool, flying dragon people, please sign me up!
As someone who played EQ1 from launch until Discord but never really tried EQ2 because I played WoW, I would very much love this opportunity.
After seeing this:
In this thread My desire to play this game and see what they have done in 10 years is having me cross my fingers. More research must be done on this game.

Love Minecraft. And check out my Youtube channel OhCanadaGamer
With all the great experiences, the most memorable still has to be the very first time I died whilst crafting.
Both hilarious and profoundly saddening at the same time.
But also just another example of why I grew up loving EQ and EQ2 vs. some of the "softer" alternatives.
Ah EQ2... the memories...
Played a shadowknight for quite a long time, best tank in the game imho.
Favorite experience by far, doing old content to powerlevel some friends and being able to regularly pull half the dungeon, dust the floor with them and keep going. Makes you feel kinda invincible
I still remember starting off as a fighter, at lvl 10 becoming a crusader, and finally at lvl 20 becoming a Shadowknight... I remember I dinged lvl 20 fighting that Queen spider under Blackburrow. I was so proud to have that harm touch. Too bad the cooldown was crazy.
I have to say I am most excited about exploring the new zones. I have always loved just relaxing and questing, really taking in the zone for what it is.
I have been playing EQ2 on and off since launch. It's the MMO for me that I will always go back to. I play for a bit, wander off to something new, and always find myself back in the world of Norrath.
There's something about the feel and flow of the game that always brings me back for more. I'm not sure if it's the nostalgia of the world which I discovered during EQ1, and seeing how it's changed over the years. I'm not sure if it's the sense of scope, with so many classes, races, and zones to choose from. I'm not even sure if it's the massive amount of mounts, collections, and costume pieces that fill my need to hoard.
My favourite memory of EQ2 was likely on launch day. I had finished the Isle of Refuge, being blown away at the graphics, and the amount to do in one small zone, and decided that I needed to see how the Commonlands had changed. I must have spent hours just running around exploring the zone, blown away at how big it was.
I may not be able to put my finger on the exact reason, but EQ2 has easily provided me with the most amount of fun I've ever had in an MMO.
"A single battle you have won, but so quick to think that this will be the end? I, like fear, am eternal, and in your dreams, I shall forever haunt."
Favorite moment was the first time I logged in. Entering the world for the first time. The wonder. The awe. The possibilities.
I've had many fun moments in the game over the years but nothing beats that first time.
Proudest moment in any MMO Ive played was my finaally earning my Cloak of the Harvester on my way too low level (level locked while in a Progression Guild) Ratonga Warden, Asiago. Soo much harvesting. Soo much searching for nodes. Soo many death. Soo much softy whimpering to myself while curled into a ball and soo many premature grey whiskers.
But nothing has since or before beaten the feeling of accomplishment I had wearing that cloak around -well that and finding a half-eaten cheese sandwich just lying there on the Freeport docks that one time (seriously, who only eats only half of a cheese sandwich??)
