Visiting The Planes of Power
Yesterday instead of playing on the progression server, Ninga and I decided to go back to Drinal and explore the planes a bit on our higher level characters. See, EverQuest is great and we’re both having a lot of fun but the incredibly slow grind of the progression server can be a bit (a lot) daunting. It’s 4x slower then it was during first release which makes casual gaming almost impossible at this point in time. We’re not giving up, but a brief reprieve was required. We peeked in on Vallon and Tallon Zek, both were down. We checked in on Marr who was not at home (must have heard us coming), Bertox was up but we decided to leave him alone (having already defeated him not that long ago), and so we went to visit Terris Thule at her home in Plane of Nightmare. She was a lot easier then I remembered back in the day, and I managed to get a progression flag, having never killed her on my necromancer before.
It surprised me to see how heavily camped these mobs still are, many years later. There were 100 people sitting in the guild lobby, and while the server is not as active as the progression one I feel confident in saying that EQ is still doing amazingly well. One of these days I’ll have to start decorating the home I purchased there, so far I just placed the house and have a completely empty yard.
Happy gaming no matter where you find yourself!
