Hey all i have not played EQ for 2 days now. Do you think i should come back to the game? Will i have any fun? What has changed since i have been gone? Where do i go to get plat with my lvl 63 Cle? What is power leveling? How do i get food and water? Will someone give me lots of pp to upgrade my cool armor pretty please? What is begging? If you are quitting can i have your stuff? Is the moss snake a hard creature to whack? That is all i can think of this moment but if i think of more i will come back and ask. Oh if you are quitting can i have your stuff?
Well, since you've been gone, they've added three new expansions, 450 more zones, 15 new classes, 4 new races, and tons of new spells and upgrades. The level cap has also been raised to 4000.
I recommend starting as a Sportsman class, you don't have to worry about ANYTHING since faction is not an issue as you are born famous, so nobody aggroes you. You can explore all the new zones at level 1 if you wanted with him.
Well, if you can't find food they created a new skill called 'Cannibalize', which effectively allows you to eat yourself. You lose a full level of experience, but you never need food again! This ability is available at level 2555 and costs 200 AA's.
Since you've been gone, they've upgraded Moss Snakes to Leviathans. They are now level 350 and can deci-hit for over 7,000,000 HP.
There is no such thing as 'loot' anymore. Now everything has to be quested. At the completion of the quest, each piece of equipment is melded onto your body so the people at SOE don't have to hear complaints about people's gear getting stolen. They finally shut down the Station Exchange because too many people were complaining about it.
Nobody can 'give away' pp. Platinum, when obtained, is in the form of IOU's since all the precious metals in Norrath were squandered by meandering adventurers. Platinum was too expensive to maintain so now the main form of currency is nylon. So now what you are looking for is ns (nylon strings).
You won't be able to do much of anything at level 63. Since you are such a low level you will maybe find 1 ns every 200 hours.
I hope this answers the majority of your questions. After being away from EQ for such a long time, many different things have changed. Edited, Mon May 16 15:27:30 2005 by TheMightyMagnu
