Hero of Kugup #EQ2
Yeah, I’ve been playing EQ2. As much as some times I dislike the game an incredible amount I DO have some fantastic friends there too, and I miss them. This weekend was a reminder in why I enjoy gaming to begin with. Despite the love/hate relationship with game mechanics and policies friends is what it really comes down to. I have had one quest in my journal since 2005 – and it was to help free the Frogloks. It required heading to Spirits of the Lost (raid zone) and defeating whatever monsters lurked inside. I have been to this zone a handful of times now but never on a character who had the quest and clearing this from my journal was a huge deal since I had it on me for so long. A huge thank you to Lilt and the crew from Wandering Souls who let me tag along (Oasis server). The zone was trivial to us who had mentored down to 55 but I still had a lot of fun. I love working my way through older quests and content, the mentor system is one thing I think EQ2 does very well.
I’ve also been working on my Rime faction; something that I have neglected for a very long time now. In fact everything in EQ2 has been neglected for quite some time and it’s refreshing to be getting back into it. I’m still playing multiple games (LotRO and EVE come to mind, and I’m contemplating diving into STO) and as long as I’m having fun I imagine I’ll continue that way. I’m really excited about the next Rift beta, although I am contemplating holding off a bit so that I don’t burn out before the game goes live at the end of February. We’ll just have to see how it goes.
Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!
If you happen to be on the newly merged Oasis/Befallen server you can find me there as Arysh.
