I'm new around here. Well not exactly new, but it's been a while since I've posted on an Everquest forum. I started playing the original in 1999, but left it at that. Few small time MMORPGS then, World of Warcraft... and now back to Everquest 2. With the system requirements easier to swallow nowadays... I've finally revitalized my love for MMOs.
In fact I wrote a blog highlighting EQ2's strengths towards WoW here:
One question I have though is the lack of player in the huge towns in EQ2 like Qeynos. Is it really bare, or am I just so new that I'm just in a low-population zone?
