I'm almost at the 5 year mark myself.
I remember /checking ppl runnin by me in ronfaure when I started out. I'd see 75/37 and go whoooaaaaa....I didn't pay attention to gear or anything, I was just in awe of the lvl.
****, my first time in a pt I panicked like crazy. I was 17war and I had to be escorted to the camp in VD from la theine. I checked the 1st fly we fought and saw Incredibly Tough and about shat myself. I 2hr'd >.> After the fly died the pt leader said, "Munkin, why did you use Mighty Strikes?" I don't remember my reply, but I do remember feeling like a tard.
My first experience being mpk'd was when I tried to get to Norg the first time. Stupid crabs XD. And yes entering the Nest was a gamble on your life lol.
As for the Crystalline Prophecy, its something different to do which is cool, especially when you're doing it with long-time ls mates ^^ Camping all those freakin orcs against 60ppl gave me the adrenaline rush I used to feel the 1st time I camped VE and the Castle Oztroja NMs :D Oh yeah, and can't forget Spook!!!!!
Kudos to those who use facts.
