Dangit!!! I was on the Drinal server and then moved my 3 toons to FV. A casual family-style guild is what I was used to in the past. I could roll a new toon on Drinal, but it took me 6 years+ to get my main to 78 (6 years to 61 and 3 months on FV to get to 78) so the thought of starting all over again is daunting.
But if you ever begin a guild on FV....
Well, what I am finding is that as long as I don't reroll something I already have higher-level it is easier to stick with it on a new server.
In the past I kept rolling chanters so I have at least 3 retired in the 60s across other servers and numerous abandoned below that. I would always hit the point "why am I not just playing my original chanter that has Epic 1.0 and tons of stuff done compared to this new character?".
So for me, there is a few "closed classes" (chanter, Bst, mnk, rng, necro --cleric is debatable as I have a 1.0 65 cleric that is my oldest EQ character surviving... but I haven't played it in years so I keep trying to play one on TLP)
Also, 1-50 is so insanely fast now if you use skinspike potions and either get buffs or use the pots. 50-65 varies by class, but I haven't used mercs yet. From what I can tell... they trivialize the 1-70 grind at least.
By the way, the Drinal guild (I looked at their site) has a gnome-only sub-militia in their guild. Hilarious. That almost tempts me to roll my SK there as a gnome (always wanted to do greenmist).
