It's been some time since i've played EQ2 and I am returning - I have a quick Q - for the new expansion, is this something that would be valuable to me at lower levels? or do you think I can hold off on buying it.

I think the big thing I'd be missing out on is the flying mounts, correct?

The new expansion is pretty much geared toward 86+ for both adventuring and crafting, including the flying mounts. So no, at lower levels it wouldn't benefit you much.

However, if you are missing several expansions, buying Destiny of Velious will give you not only DoV but also any previous expansion you were missing. Alternatively, the collector's edition for the last expansion, Sentinel's Fate, is only about $18-$20 on Amazon.com, and will give you a 65% ground speed mount for each of your characters: http://amzn.com/B002W8XTL0

Thank you,

I actually did pick up Sentinels Fate CE to get me started again, the mount is nice to have.

So far the only sad piece has been that apparently you don't start on the little newbie island anymore. I miss it.

Remember when you used to start aboard the boat and had to "learn" all the beginning stuff just to get to the island?

I remember having to select one of the four archtypes and not getting to select your next stage in the class until 10, then again at 20.

I remember being on the boat, a survivor after the moon blew up and getting pulled back on and having to fight the dragon thing and the goblin that got loose.

In any case, I'm enjoying Halas. I still have a level 48 Paladin out there I haven't played in a while.

Yeah, I really miss the islands and even the boat ride. My main char still has those older quests in her journal from picking subclass and class out.

Halas is a pretty nice place, I love their housing, but I'm a housing freak. :) Glad you're having a good time!

I liked the fact that good and evil were all on the same island at first, the choice for that came only when you left the island.

I can still recall the excitement the first time I entered Qeynos and logged outside the bank in Nettleville.

Yeah, the island is actually probably the biggest piece I miss

* I also miss the newbie quests in each branch of the starting cities (i.e. Graystone Harbor, Nettleville)
* Oddly enough, my characters no longer start with the coin they used to start with (or get, forget which) that had the voice of Lucan and the Queen when you examined it.
* I miss more than one stat mattering to a character
* I miss "leveling" into your gear (wear it when it's orange, eventually turns green to let you know to change it)

But I'm ok, I'm having fun doing the new collection quests and grinding out AA on my various characters - found my old guild still kicking (though with only a few members) and re-joined.
