Okay so I have decided that I'm about 99.9% sure I'm going to give EQOA another run. We will do Pickclaws until 20 but after that it's going to a good old fashioned grind with the help of Boon. It's going to be about 5 days so you will have time to respond to this.

I'm going to be a SK. Also I have just thought about the old days(as in a lot of CM's for the level) so I set CM marks so us strong CMer's won't fall behind a level or two, 75 at 20(22); 120 at 25; 175 at 30(32); of course- 300 at 35; 375 at 40; 450 at 46; 500 at 50;Get MC Reqs(600) then MC at 55(800). You're welcome to CM more but this is the amount we will all have, we should zip through any grind mob like nothing.
The grind layout would look something like this:

20-22=20 quest
22-23=Gnoll Fishermen
30-32=30 quest
48-49=Kitty's at the bottom
50-53=Kitty's in hut's
55-58=Spectral Guardians

But seriously who would rather grind some of the more fun camps? Like Mino's, DFC, Kappa's, SJR Nashier's and the like? At the moment I can see old timers justifying running am maiden for a day or two to rack up that massive 450 count at 46. But personally I am a day one player and miss the grind. So we'll have to discuss it.

Leave your AIM/Facebook and we'll set all this up. We will being doing the stat quest. As far as form/WH, I think he should go WH. We can all benefit greatly and don't have to throw a week or three(for gator).

Come one people the last two "fixed group" post replied to late. Don't want that to happen to this one. Also toons will be on CLW server, playtime is usually going to be 6:30 p.m.- 10:00 p.m.
#3 Oct 27 2010 at 2:41 PM Rating: Decent

saw your post... might be willing to come back as well for another run, played since EQOA released but never reach lvl 60 with a toon, lol... anyway

let me know the following and theres a pretty good chance im down for this Perma Group.

server CLW

whats your toons name going to be so I can locate ya.

also, im going to be an Alc, or Wiz since it seems what is most requested per the posts and what not...

but if we find a static grp I may just switch to another support class to help with grinding like you spoke of...

let me know...

"6:30 p.m.- 10:00 p.m."
time zone?
#5 Oct 28 2010 at 7:44 AM Rating: Decent
I'm at EST(eastern)
#6 Oct 28 2010 at 6:32 PM Rating: Decent
EST, by the way if you are doing per request just for the PL's then there is no point. We'll get 1-15 the first night, then some of us will log in the next day at 15 and you'll be 32 lol. But if not, yes a wiz/alc would be perfect.

Probably the most damage in grinds.

So far SK/ALC or WIZ. Here's to hoping for a bard!!.

well as I mentioned if we do get a static grinding group going I would rather play a support/healer class such as a bard instead of an alc or wiz

but regardless I have no prob switching to what is needed when the time comes...

my Internet is currently down and suspect it may be for a week... I was told it may be before which I hope is the case but one never knows so...

anyway do you have a date as to when your starting or it is still a toss up...

regardless I check this board frequently so please keep me posted

#8 Oct 29 2010 at 2:47 PM Rating: Decent
BTW have you started already... just noticed your post was back on 10/21 and you said 5 days from that... hopefully not yet if not oh well, lol

information so far

server-castle lightwolf


possible alc/wiz/brd (shammy maybe)

Eastern time zone 630-10pm

#9 Oct 30 2010 at 3:17 PM Rating: Decent
Nope have not started yet I don't plan on doing so until/if we do get a grind group going. Just try to stay in touch every few days and hopefully we'll get more people. If it takes me renewing my account before we got the people I will do so and post this on the official forums.

Also to the new people looking at this, I'm sure neither of us already in on planning this will care about carrying you(telling you where to place stat points, spells to use, CM's to get etc.). By the time you get 40 you'll pretty much have the class down pact anyway.

I'm originally from FH, got a 60 Defender with 1.3k CM's all before boon came out. However I do got a little bit of $$ on CLW due to the mass migration back in '05. Enough to get my SK HBA through the levels. Possibly enough to get a Monk Rallosian, the healer charisma armor, Rogue/Ranger a str/dex set etc. Basically enough to just to get everyone up to their max damage/healing potential. Wizard dexterity armor/intelligence jewelry etc.

Overall if you been looking at this game for awhile and want a MMO where you can sit in your man room on your man couch playing on your man 56" 1080p TV with a twelve pack+a few bowls this is a good chance for you to jump in.

from the looks of things it doesnt seem like we are going to be getting a solid 4 anytime soon, lol

may have to either cancel the idea... or find peeps in game. or duo which is better than going at it solo.

but as of right now it looks pretty grim...
#11 Nov 04 2010 at 10:13 PM Rating: Decent
I agree which really sucks lol. You have to figure we'll find at least one person on register at all times per level group and with healers not being insta finds back in 2004. We can't expect a healer to be the one.

So the way I see it we got three choices-
SK/BARD/RANDOM DD OFF REG; we should be able to do grays very easily
BARD/RANGER(CM HEALS)/RANDOM DD OFF REG; heals stack should be able to do Dark Blue's continuous easily - BARD TANKING
NECRO/RANGER-BARD-SK/RANDOM DD OFF REG; would suffer until NECRO got 250+ AR should be able to duo Dark Blue's continuous.

The NECRO/SK duo is intriguing because I actually don't know it's better for the NECRO to go power or blood, obviously duoed with a RANGER power is obvious as well as blood is with the power BARD. However, the SK/NECRO duo might be able to duo as well as a SK/BARD. Except with more speed if you can find a way to heal the NECRO. Then it's the question what slows us down more? The SK OOMing (POWER) or the NECRO needing to eat because even with max AR the pacts do take a little health off you (BLOOD).

It seems like a easy choice until you figure how is the NECRO going to keep his health up while pacting the SK for the third time lmao. Which is why IMO the SK/BARD is the most perfect. You got the BARD with the HEAL/POWER/DAMAGE and the SK taking MIN hits off grays while having enough mana to do somewhat decent damage. And the SK/BARD duo is a class we both want.

I agree, that being said I am sure we will be able to locate some Necs along the way, they are a rather popular class, I will take up the roll of Power Bard...

if you guys can fit with my schedule i'll join you. i'm eastern time, i have school tues and weds from 6-9 and 6-10 (all pm). basically never home friday nights. saturday nights are hit and miss. sunday nights i'm usually home. i am looking for a job, so whenever I get one my playing times will possibly change. my classes change every 2 months (generally), so my times will change.

IMO ALL necros should ALWAYS go power. I much rather die the few times that necro's blood path is likely to save me (weather I am or aren't a necro) then not have all the mana the necro could have gave me throughout the group/other groups.
bards i also obviously also think should only ever go power.
but anyway...

what classes would you guys prefer of me, were i to join you? which would you be least wanting of me to pick? there's quite a few classes I want.
#14 Nov 05 2010 at 7:43 PM Rating: Decent
I'm ready to start whenever. We could change the times on Tuesday and Wednesday to 10:30-1:30. What is everyones schedule? I work from 10-6:15 Mon-Sat. Off Sundays but I do like the idea of taking the Friday offs while finding a way to stay in contact to find out if we all got a live to life on Saturdays. Other times we grind. I'm home most Saturday nights not Friday nights.

It really doesn't matter which class you are but as far as what I'd want to be; I'd want you to be a WIZ/ALC for the high damage potential, a MONK take advantage of having a battery in the group and because their just kick ***, or NEC for more power/pacts/pet/damage basically a secondary support char.

Maybe our healer?

Monk Wiz and Cleric are classes I want to level. I think right now i'd prefer a wiz or cl. I already have a dwarf CL that is somewhere in his teens on CLW, which I could use to help you guys get to his level. which I would want my CL to be a dwarf anyway for doomseeker (of course with rehab I wouldn't grind as a doomseeker, unless I had a reason to).

I also have a wiz on clw that is in the 30s. can't remember exactly what level. so the CL would prolly be best.

and on the SK subject, if the SK has INT and STA he will not need many heals. my 28 SK procs HP a LOT. he has a few cms (im guess at like either 80 or 135ish, both just guesses though), and his armor is a mixture of drops, quests and 18/23 INT gear (aka mostly crap/unspecial). and with him i was grinding mobs that are about 28-32 with very little down time, granted it did take a few seconds to run between each mob. the CMs i had focused on healing/HPness.

Let's just say by 50 his stats are laid out to be:

300 str
490 sta
268 agi
130 dex
300 int

SELF-BUFFED HP W/ Shield= 5,329

This is assuming WH and DARK ELF. All calculated, planned and guaranteed stats. Planned at intervals 20/35/43/50 He will be double/triple procing almost every hit. Taking minimum hits off grays or damn close. Which is where the BARD heal will keep him full HP/MANA.

Drop strength for int. He'll heal himself better, and with the bard buffs he won't need the str (for mana). it's aggro benefits are minimal.

I'm good pimp. I only put like 30 points in strength. Noobs use Ruby when leveling tanks. People who know what they are doing use Star Ruby. Which is about 19 str/75 HP per piece rather than a straight 105 HP from Ruby.

By the way the effectiveness of taunts was up'd to near 50% which is a huge boost compared to the 10% it use to be. And the 60% on Strikes/Touches is enough for me to value strength now-a-days. Also I want the STR for the highest hit potential.

Just want to add my Defender was one of the first to value a low STR build. Back in 2003 when people were still figuring out sh*t, placing in DEX. My Warrior was a 60 DEF with 100STR/ 325STA/ 250AGI/ 300WIS, now tell me how revolutionary was that in 2003? In fact this Shadowknights name is going to be "NEWBREED". 30 more INT would be what? An extra .02% chance to proc on VoD?

Please don't talk as if I knew you only put 30 points into it (unless I missed you saying that before). ("30 more INT would be what? An extra .02% chance to proc on VoD?" ) (And if I mistook that, sorry. Reading text isn't the same as hearing something be said.)

I may be getting confused on what they actually did push through in the taunt realm, I do however remember that when they updated the taunts to scale to level 20 that they also upped the STR mod to 15%. I know from there Dae admitted that it basically didn't help at all, and then discussed making it better. Not sure what he changed based on that.
I'll go see if I can find any relative info.

Up to you guys. Tonight I'll hook up my PS2 again and everything. My account's already active.

Well I have to buy a new PS2. So I'll have everything set up by tomorrow if that's when ya'll want to start.
#23 Nov 07 2010 at 6:27 PM Rating: Decent
By the way which class did you decide on Tit?
#24 Nov 08 2010 at 3:00 AM Rating: Default
I was gonna go with Cleric. I already have one that is like right around 20, Dwarf. I hope you guys don't mind me just using that one and helping you get to his level. Don't really see the point in me deleting him.

Oh, and you can get to level 20 off quests alone. (You may need to kill a mob or two if you're just under level.) But that assumes you do all the 17s.

My wizzy will be able to port you guys to a few places, he's like in his mid 30s, so he will only have the ports up to there.

For my Cleric I don't intend to go hunter, but will help you of course.
And those funner camps? I'd love to do them. I miss the old school grinding days. As you're gonna be the tank I'll prolly just let you decide.

I dunno how many CMs I'll need/want, so I can't really comment on the scheme. With 4x XP, I prefer to level over getting a CM I don't really need, as CMs get easier to get the higher level you are (until your CM count catches up with you that is), and after leveling higher you get them even faster with boon. Your numbers seem a little steep to me, but I do wanna give it a try.

Stat quest wise, we'll have to do them all, unless you two don't want to do the Dexterity one.

We should try and kill Dreadnaught too. Just cuz.
