FYI - been playing since Beta 2 in October of 1998. I played a Half-Elf Paladin named James, then switiched to a druid named Stewwy at release because Paladin's couldn't solo. hehe I'll edit this and delete it if you really didn't want replies to this Panamah. :)

Official release was March 16th 1999.

Beta 1 started in the summer of 1998.

Beta 2 in the fall of 1998.

My amin character Stewwy was born March 13th 1999. Someone tell me how I did that when release was March 16th? hehe

I've been playing between 2 and 3 years. I started in the summer of 2001 and it's almost 2004 now so I think that's about right...

I think my character started in April of May of 1999.

I had the game about a year before that, just never installed it until a coworker at EA got me to start.

September 99 I made Menolen my Half-Elf Ranger on Tribunal. Where he still sits at level 22. :devil:

Aerodol
01-31-2004, 11:07 PM
I've been playing since the final beta phase. I created a wood elf ranger and carried that over to the Bristlebane server when the game was released. I played the ranger up to lvl 23 before I created Aerodol on August 23, 1999.

I retired him for the most part in September of 2003 and started playing my Erudite Shadowknight almost exclusively. I break out the druid when I want to solo or when I forget that I like to melee more now than I like to nuke and heal.

1 AUG 99. Started on Xegony with this same character that has always been my "main" and I still enjoy the most. Transferred to the new server 7th Hammer when it opened upon Kunark release.

41+% say 'more than 4 years'. What I want to know is how many of them are still playing their first character as their primary. (New poll?) It would show a kind of dedication and fortitude.

Fairweather Pure
08-12-2004, 10:42 AM
I played in the last phase of Beta as a rogue. Once EQ was officially released, I tried 2-3 other classes before deciding on my druid. So, I've been playing Fairweather since May or June of '99 (I forget). I have never changed classes since. I have some lowbie alts I play with my GF from time to time, but Fairweather easily gets 99.9% of my EQ time and attention.

I just started in Feb 05. My wife got a copy of EQ plat for christmas and when I got back from Afghanistan, I started playing my main. Currently 55 dwarf cleric. I think I started Kuily in August, would have to /played to find out for sure though. I have an army of alts that I can swap around to if I don't feel like playing my cleric. 55 cleric, 22 half elf druid, 29 bst, 11 chanty, 11 bard, 13 sk, 23 rogue, 7 warr.
