As a new player, what content do I have access too with All-Access

romanswinterromanswinter Member UncommonPosts: 74

My wife and I are thinking of playing EQ2. I already have an account with most expacs unlocked from when I played before. She would be a brand new player on a brand new account. What expacs would she have access to if she signed up for the All-Access sub? 

Thanks for the help guys!

    All except the most recent Expac and the new Campaign.  

     

    You'd both have about the same access i think, depending on when you quit.  Unless you plan to play at the top end  (which is where the most population is), you would be fine and would have tons and tons of content available.

     

    If you want to play top end, you'd both need expac,

    Thanks for the info! 

    OK, so everything but Rum Cellar and Altar of Madness?

    you would need to buy the altar of Malice expansion to hit the level cap of 100

    Wait for the time locked progression server to start before getting going is my advice.

    Fresh server will allow you guys to experience the content as it drop with others and be part of a fresh community :)

    That is definitely the plan. I thought we would start a little early on a normal server so she can get the hang of it. She has never played an MMO before so I figured she could get a little practice in before the progression server started.

    It's a good idea :)

    Do they still limit auction house and races you can use?

    Idk about the races. These are the things that a f2p does not have access to:

    -> chat
    -> mail function
    -> limited # of characters ( 2 )
    Comment: I can understand these. They are anti gold seller Tools mostly(shame that innocents have got to languish because of that scum)

    -> Mercenaries and the rest of things from that feature pack
    Comment: DO NOTE that it is called a "feature pack" and not an "expansion"! Is perfectly logical to ask to pay for those. What IS NOT logical is that they have ONE feature pack. Wtf?

    -> ability to modify xp / AA gain ratio
    -> latest expansion and all the stuff that came with it
    -> freeblood race + Channeler and beastlord classes
    Comment: they HAVE TO charge for something or they'd go kaputt pretty quickly!

    That's it afaik. Not a bad deal if you ask me. Especially given that you get 95 levels of content, huge world and pretty much everything. The locked things can be either unlocked cheaply(feat.pack stuff costs...25$?) or you can and the system by abusing guild functions etc. One of the best deals I saw!
