Just curious, I was wondering how many of you WOW druids played EQ druids. I played EQ for about 2 years and got kethdredd up to 55 on Xegony before I quit. It was a no brainer that I pick up a druid in WOW. I haven't even tried another class yet. To me WOW made the druid class what I hoped it was going to be in EQ. It's not perfect but I sure enjoy meleeing a bit.

55 Druid in EQ, completely soloing. Same for my 36 paladin and 26 mage. I am a happy level 29 2/3 WoW paladin at present. I can see a NE Druid in my near future, however, as my first alt.

Got up to 58 with Khieran, my human druid in EQ. Also had a human monk get to 56.

(plus too many alts to count :))

Hi everyone! This is a great site by the way!

I was a druid in EverQuest, can't remember my exact level (it was in the 30's) since it was so long ago I played that.

I also was a druid in DAOC for the duration of my free month =) Didn't enjoy the 100% pvp focus of that game.

I was a druid in NWN, BG/BG2, and had druids in my IWD/IWD2 parties ...but these games don't really count I guess ('cause they're not online).

Now I'm a level 17 druid in Wow... just got my angry-looking sea lion form! =)


...I guess you could say I'm obsessed with druids (or just 'nature characters')

66 Druid in EQ with a 62pally and 3 40+ alts, 37 Druid in DaoC before I went back to EQ, now a 25 Druid in Wow. Needless to say, the WoW druid is my favorite :-)

There are some things my EQ druid could do that I wish I could do in WoW, like porting. I miss porting to places and not running so much!

BUT, I am really enjoying being able to melee, and survive the fight! I'm still debating if I will be taking this character all the way to 60. It really depends on if the fun continues or stops. I'm also having fun playing a shaman and a warrior (lvl 15 and 19 respectively, still babies!) so I guess we'll see which chars continue to grow and which ones don't.

Its pretty fun being the warrior, and not having to worry about keeping people healed. :)

Played an Dark Elf SK in EQ, lvl 70, Anguish access etc. I wanted to play undead, prolly woulda gone rogue (damn them for not putting in Death Knight), but my friends wanted alliance. Given the info I had this looked closest to the melee/caster play style, and also allowed me to retain the sexy blue elf look.

In EQ: Played a cleric to 58, then a beastlord to 60.

In WoW: I go back and forth between a gnome warrior (stop laughing :) ) and an NE druid. Both are 21 at the moment.

If my druid wasn't able to melee, I'd probably have zero interest in the class. I never got a druid past 14 in EQ. :)

Enchanter and Warrior in EQ; druid and mage in WoW. Basically I enjoyed (trying to) controlling the situation. I think the druid and mage do the best at that in WoW.

I played an alt druid in EverQuest (my main was a ranger) up to level 55 or so. Druid in WoW closed and open beta, but then settled on the priest as my main. However, I do still have a druid, but only as an alt :-)

Played a 65 Iksar SK in EQ (quit before OOW), and I really didn't think Druid would appeal to me a first.

But now at 44 with no signs of slowing down, I *love* it being a Druid.

As different in concept and lore the two classes are, the two things they have in common that makes them enjoyable was their versatility, and more importantly, their survivability. Both classes are extremely self-sufficient.

Leafweir
01-04-2005, 12:10 PM
Yeah, Boudicca, that's exactly why I'm playing one. Got casting, tankability, stealth, self healing, buffs. The class plays more like and SK than SK does almost. Here we're not second rate tanks, our stealth is equivalent to a rogues and our healing and soloability are way up.

played a 70 BL on Ayonae Ro

before i switched to BL main, had a 65 sham and 65 cleric (cleric was given to me, used it for bot) and sham was my first main, got bored of crap DPS and switched to BL and loved it, now im a 39 NE Druid on Bloodhoof Server.

Also had about 234,023,948,093,284,029,384 alts :P

Still play my 69 paladin, although he looks to be perma-stuck on 69. Just log on to raid, any free time I get I would rather level my WoW characters.

Hey Muchew, my 37 druid is on Bloodhoof also, look me up if you ever want to work on some quests.

played a halfling druid up to umm.. 54 ish in eq (Twigstick Leafblower - Saryrn), was playing a druid in eq2 til 20 when he became a fury. Got tired of feeling like a wannabe cleric in that game. really feel like they made the druid as undruidlike as they could in eq2. WoW seems to have created the most enjoyable druid class of any game i can recall playing.

Still playing my 68 druid in EQ :)

Played a druid to 11 in EQ2, haven't logged on there since getting WoW.

Loving the WoW druid (currently level 31) - really versatile and a fun class, although I'm dabbling with a few alts as well :)

I was a druid for years in EQ, but now I'm a priest. I'm not sure what changed, I always enjoyed my druid, but I always felt a little lacking in healing and thats what I like to do the most. It seems like shapeshifting is alot of fun, I bet I'm missing out!

Love,

I actually play a Bard first in EQ, got frustrated about my epic and quit, moved to a new server, became a Shadowknight, and played him up to level 65.

I originally planned to play an Undead Warrior (With hopes that Undead Warriors would be able to obtain the Death Knight hero class), but a funny thing happened on the way... all my friends, who had been happily playing Horde while I was still scraping together the money to buy a computer capable of playing WoW, switched over to Alliance. So, after researching the classes and races for a while, I noticed... hey, the Druid looks pretty cool, has that hybrid feel going for it, lots of fun little quirks, let's try it out.

33 Levels and growing, and I'm still loving it.

My EQ "main" was a 69 shaman, with a 68 monk as his side-kick. 2-boxed because LFG sucked... so I made my own group and built-on to it by adding people as I went. ^_^

Started playing a shaman in WoW and got him to 28; but dammit, they made them too powerful... I hate playing the power-class. It's like playing a pally, it's just so damn easy it feels like I'm cheating (read: EQ beastlord). So I switched to an alliance warrior (the complete opposite of the shaman in power), and he's a lot of fun, and I've recently started this druid alt, who is quickly becoming my favorite character. I've really enjoyed the druid so far.

I was an EQ druid. In WoW I actually first played a gnome rogue which was great fun. On changing to the European servers I'm playing a druid again but I was very tempted to start a second rogue.

played eq for over five years, didn't start a druid until a year after i started eq, but i knew then it would be my main. a halfer druid named Hogglebrow. took him through Plane of Time and halfway through GoD before my guild moved to another server. think i still have an active magelo. http://www.magelo.com/eq_view_profile.html?num=453379

EQ was fun, but long live the Planes of Power. Time to move on now, looks like Blizzard might have what it takes to keep me here for awhile

To be truthfully honest... I kinda had a thing against EQ druids. It was nothing against the class itself... but rather the types of people the class tended to attract. I was KSd, griefed, told to "stfu n00b", whatever... by more druids than any other class. They had all the right tools to do it --- sow, tracking, camoflouge, could dish out some serious damage with DoTs and crit nukes... Being able to port. There was even a server-reknowned dr00d who did *nothing* but farm nameds on the server and his tactics were notorious for completely stomping all over anyone who was engaged or possibly going for the mob. As usual, EQ GMs wouldn't do crap about him, and he did this for well over 2 years... just KSing, training, griefing people. You would never see another name slandered so much in the /buysell channel... was almost a weekly thing you'd see big flame-wars going on in the trade channel bashing him. Having been KSd by him 2-3 times, he was damned good at what he did... and he was hated by everyone on the server.

I knew a lot of good druids, but I also had a ton of run-ins with some jack-ass dr00ds who were just kids and/or immature adults acting like complete idiots.

For what it's worth, that tends not to be the case in WoW. I've met a lot of nice druids. So far it seems in WoW the rogue class has taken that moniker of "l33t d00d KSing griefer." I've had so many rogues come up to a mob that I was killing and just start wailing on it... then when it died and I couldn't loot the mob and didn't get any xp, I'd see the rogue looting it and then "haha u suck" at me then run off. If I try to say "dude, that wasn't cool" a typical response that I get is "stfu n00b." So that tells me prob the same jackasses who griefed me as druids in EQ are probly playing the rogue class in WoW. :D

Again, that doesn't go for all EQ druids and all WoW rogues... it's just been kinda a common theme amongst a few of the rogues I've ran into in WoW. I prob have 1 incident every few nights where some noobie rogue runs up and KSs me while I'm fighting a mob.

I played a ranger to level 69 in EQ1, and to 16 in EQ2, but switched to a shadow knight. I got to 25 before I decided to try WoW. Now, my main is a 13 hunter (I've only been playing 2 weeks!), but I have a 10 druid and 8 warlock for alts. I've tried most of the classes, but these are by far my favorites, and I do look forward to seeing at least my hunter and druid into their 50's.
Fawnae, I had some horrid experiences with a couple of EQ1 druids myself, so I was reluctant to play one on WoW. But I must admit, it's been a blast, and I enjoy every second I play! No regrets on choosing a druid yet! :lmao:

I played a warrior and enchanter in EQ. Without complicating the analysis too much, I felt the druid was the most similar of those two in play.

I played a dark elf SK to around 27... deleveled to 25 in one sitting and retired him...

My next character was a wizard.. loved him... got him to around 20ish... and got bored dying all the damn time...

The next was the one that surprised even me! I wanted to get groups... I wanted to be useful... so I started one of the holy trinity... an Enchanter, Mezzum.

I loved playing an enchanter. I died alot but I had fun doing it! I played him to 67 thru PoP & about a quarter of the way thru Gates, then moved on to EQ2. Which was boring... grinding = tehsux

All my RL friends had moved on to WoW by then, so I followed suit. I started a druid and haven't looked back. I don't like being main healer, but I can if I want to. I don't like being main tank, but I can if I am needed to. I love the versaility that the druid class brings. Jack of all trades, master of none. (Except Herbalism/Alchemy, hehe)

I don't play WoW but I am currently reading the various threads...

I played dwarf/war, 1/2ling/dru, barb/war, inky/enc, inky/cler, gnm/mage and a bunch of miscellaneous low level charaters...

My highest of the bunch was my barbarian/war which was lv 65/300AA and all but poTime flagged. I quite during the pop expansion.

I loved the druid class in EQ because of the variety in soloing and grouping.

Used to play a sk in EQ got him to 70 just when sony decided to make sks fun and WoW came out :p. I used to think druids were pretty umm boring in EQ but in wow i love playing one. I think i adjusted well to a healing/support class and use my forms all teh time. *chomps* kidda

I didnt play a druid too high level in everquest but I did however play for over 5 years (since 2000, kunark). I've realized that most people play this game although I am knew myself have came straight from non-MMo type games and moan and cry about things that do not realize how well this game was made compared to other MMo's. Yes I have already noticed, they need to work on the servers, concerning lag, bugs, disconnects, etc, but truely this is a well made game.

On another note, most people do not realize this is a fairly easy mmo, all classes can solo (efficient or not) unlike most others like everquest when almost all classes need to start grouping at a very low level. I have found even leveling comes very quickly compared to most other rpg's (online or not) where the higher levels could take weeks apon weeks to complete. ie, when i first started everquest before Planes of Power, it literally took months to do lv54-60. the level 54 and 59 was about 3-4hrs per blue bub (4%) of crazy crazy grinding. It weeded out newbs from serious players since a game like WoW a 12yr old that has never even played Zelda for Nes can get lv60. I do like how it is layed back and coming from a person who has played mmo's for over 10yrs, and regular rpg's (since the nes days) and like consule rpg's, u can log on an hr, kill a few mobs, do some tradeskills etc and log out, unlike everquest, where even gaining a hand full of regular xp took over 4hrs just to put a dent in. If you did log on for an hr, the time you get a group together, find a camp, etc, you'll get like 1% and have to log.

The reason why I did quit everquest was b/c it was very time consuming, leveling took hrs a day, raiding took even more. In high game everquest, most cases, a raid was a full night, 7pm to 1am and unless doing plane of time (which was, admittedly behind quite a few expansion) you would get close to 5-6 drops a night, and out of 50 people in a raid, you dont see drops for days even weeks only to still be outdated. I heard someone complaining that a raid in this game took 3 hrs, i almost pissed my pants laughing, com'mon, it's an mmo, it should take a while if you want to see uber items.

I have noticed people complaining about class balances. coming from everquest, the game was totally out of whack. rogues were literally double dps of all classes and with alternate advancements, never had an aggro issue. monks were outdated when bards got the fade ability which made them far superior pullers. paladins and shadowknights, unless crazy uber, were even horrible tanks xp or raid content. druids could not heal (almost literally) until level 58, but you still needed a cleric if you wanted a rez, which is funny how people get so mad when they die b/c it is absolutely no big deal in this game unless you wipe during an instance.

I hope this post will let you newer people to the mmo world, that in comparison, it is a well made game, yes it has its flaws, but i have been enjoying it a lot and am a proud druid =)

THanks,
Lejes

EQ is EverQuest. :)

Started off in EQ as a dark elf shadow knight. Around the time Luclin came out I rolled up a "throwaway" character named Zarros, a high elf cleric. You see, I was lagging like mad and didn't want to risk my "uber level 32 shadow knight"....LOL.

Well Zarros became my main and I got him to 65, and then quit shortly after Gates of Discord came out. I left EQ before that but had come back for Lost Dungeons of Norrath, but found I was enjoying City of Heroes more. I came back very briefly to EQ and then quit again, and for good, shortly before Omens of War came out. I played EQII, but got tired of the grindy nature of its soloing and the lack of 20+ soloable quests. In EQII I had a necromancer, a sorcerer, a warlock, and a brawler.

In City of Heroes, my main is Tachyon Trinity, and she's a very "defenderish" blaster. Complete with leadership and plans to pick up the medicine pool. I've always had a thing for being versatile I guess, either that or no matter how hard I try I always seem to be the healer or thinking like one...

I'm enjoying the WoW druid a lot, and the flexibility it offers me in being able to solo or contribute to groups in a multitude of ways.

Still play (and enjoy since Feb. 2000) lvl 70 Necro on Torv server. Also have 67 Wizzy, 65 SK and 65 Paly. Had dr00d but discarded him at lvl 42. All toons but Necro have been retired, and only now exist for EEs :) Necro in EQ own Warlock of WoW, so sticking with druid for now.

Have to say I wasn't a Druid primarily in EQ, having fun tearing about the world as a 65 bard for a long while.

Seeing as how there's no bards in WoW, and we get to tear about Kalimdor as cheetahs, the choice was obvious! Even at 60, it's still my preferred method of transportation. :elfbiggri

My only temptation so far is a 27 Fury (Druid path) in EQ2 on the Antonia server.

Played a ranger from 1998 until 2002 when I quit at 65 with mostly elemental gear (quit before GoD or LDoN came out). Also played a druid and monk to 60 before Planes of Power came out and also had a cleric in the 40's. I managed to quit all that stuff then 3 years later got sucked into WoW... heh.

I'm a 70 woodelf bard in EQ1. I also have a 41 highelf wizard and various mid-20's alts ranging from cleric, ranger, warrior, rogue, beastlord. We're all located on Torvo.. have been since forever!

In coming to WoW I saw the druid as the most versatile class available, much like the bard is one of the more versatile classes in EQ, and that's why i'm a druid =D~ I think it was a great choice... I do miss selo's though! Cheetah form just can't compare, much as i <3 it

65 Warrior, 200+ days played, a few hundred AA, lot of raiding -- on a druid here. PoP broke me. Still get queasy thinking of earth rings. Quit when GoD came out and it looked like more of the same.

I will never play a class as one-dimensional or that can't solo again.

Ehh.. I played UO back in teh day. Heh heh. There were no classes.. You just took up the skill that was overpowered at the time and abused it until they nurfed it and beefed up another skill. You didnt have levels, you just had stats and skill points. When the game came out you were alloted 1400 skill points and each skill only went up to 100 not including skill buffs from items. People had uber characters who could do everything and anything in the game so eventually they restricted everyone to 700 skill points. So if you had anything more than that, you lost half your skills because they deteriorated. What a circus that game was. It was addicting tho.. I made the title of Glorious Lord briefly and lost it because of death. Ahh.. the good old days..

Ugh.. the more I type the more pops into my head. Eventually they moved to a system that you could LOCK your skills in so they wouldnt deteriorate due to other skill gains. Then the economy went up in flames because of internet sales. My dad, my brother, and I ended up with like 4 castles, over 10 houses, and endless ammounts of gold. LoL.. Also a couple of rare Nightmare steeds which were black horses that could gank people. Apparently there was less than like 10 or something on each server. I could be mistaken about that, but I know that they were rare. Then they tried to balance the economy by adding in more of the rare objects which people lost TONS of money on while others made hordes because they knew where to farm the rare objects. Eventually the game became MONOPOLY to see who had the most property and most cash. Ohh my God the good o'l days..

OOOooOOoooooOoooo..

LoL! More comes to mind.. THEIVES! I remember I had a Theif with 100 skill which was like impossible to obtain unless you jacked your theiving skills up with macros hidden in a house in the middle of nowhere with your friends account. My dad and his buddies got so good at stealing from people in town that the GM's literally had to CHANGE the location of where the guards stood because people started to call Origin and complain. HAHAHA.. VESPER!!!

I remember we had this all theives guild which was just a bunch of friends my dad knew through business. We all had 100 hiding, and 100 stealing and we would group in pairs on a bridge and hide so once your ran thru one person, you would be stuck in between 4 people. We would then steal as much **** from thier pack as possible and when thhe attacked us, we would gank their ass. OMG we were ****ing pirates! Damn the good o'l days..

Eventually and Im 100% POSITIVE due to our guilds exploits, UO nurfed the theiving system. Shortly after they split the world into 2 areas. One was the PvP world and one was the PvE world. The game only went downhill after that. At about that time we quit UO. I see the Samurai worlds on the shelves at best buy and think to myself.. why are they still trying? I would be interested in a UO 2.

Edit: I have just been notified that UO2 fell through because of Quality Assurance reasons. Heheh.. oh well..

I played a druid in EQ - but was low on the list of alts. In fact, I think at the end, she was about my lowest level alt at 30 or so.

Interesting thing in WoW, I find healing instances to be very exciting and challenging (esp with the idiots who don't know how to control agro). In EQ, my shaman and priest were just heal-bots.

Hehe, it was EQ that made me into a dirty hippy. When I started I wanted to be a rogue or a necromancer, as they are more what I like from an RP perspective, but I like the play of the EQ bard too much. When I wasn't playing a bard due to burn out or carpel tunnel I'd go with druid because I had learned the value of versitility, and they had healing and damage, the 2 things bards didn't have to speak of.

So when I bought WoW, I did it again because I wanted to be an undead warlock. About 6 levels in I started a druid and never looked back. The class is about as close as you can get to the perfect hybrid, short of giving the EQ bard some straight heals and DD's :whistle:

Anyway, moral of the story is the worst part of a class based system is in many cases the playstyle of a class you love may be so bad you have to play a class you don't to enjoy your playtime in a MMO. I think a lot of people that gripe about the class they love really don't love the class, they love what their class would be if we didn't have game mechanics. Like it or no you have to be a class you like to play rather then a class you want to be.

EverQuest was my first MMO and creating the right character for me was a process:

When I started with EQ I had a female paladin but didn't play her long.

Then I created a female warrior (Lenasea) who I played until her high 40's.

Then I created a female wizard (Cinelene) and when she was in her 50's I created a female druid (Rhiaannon).

I played Rhiaannon until she was 69 but kept Cinelene as well 'cuz I sure liked the nuking! Rhiaannon was a very versatile character and I just loved the AoE spells and the buffs I could do on other players.

EQ2 came out and I created a druid there but didn't really like the look of the game and didn't enjoy playing it as much as EQ.

Then WoW Beta came out and a few of my friends started playing it and one of them sent me discs to check the Beta out. Well, long story short, I was never able to get into the Beta and it soon ended. But I still was interested so I subscribed to WoW and kept my EQ accounts, just in case. But it wasn't long before I closed the EQ/EQ2 accounts (it was harder to do away with Cinelene and Rhiaannon than I thought!!)

In WoW I first created a female NE druid named (guess?) Rhiaannon, who's 60 now. Then got another account and created a human female warlock (Cinelene), who's 41, a human female mage (Fellice), who's 37, and a dwarf female priest (Nighten), who's 22. I have created a NE warrior on my alt account but haven't played her past 8...I just wanted to get the name (Lanasea) in case I have time to bring her along.

Each of the classes I've played, both in EQ/EQ2 and WoW have been fun and diverse. If I didn't have fun with them I would have to delete them. My play time is too short to spend it not having a good time!!

I'm playing on Aggramar server and hope you'll say Hey! if you see me. Have fun and stay well!

1st character in EQ was a warrior (level 39 when Kunark came out)

Switched to a cleric shortly after Kunark, level 70, top-end guild with tons and tons of raiding and server firsts

Started WoW with a paladin, but they were a dime a dozen so I started Nika and love her. Grinding was slow (DPS issues...) but get me with a partner or in a group and we kick serious butt. The same with PvP; solo I stink, team / group me up and we're dangerous stuff!

I was a 68 bard in EQ. Like many of the other bards, I was attracted to the versatility, and the cheetah speed, which I so dearly miss from the bard days. EQ just takes up way to much time, so I came to WoW, and the choice was obvious. Druid.

Wut!? Of course I was Druid in EQ, what other way to go? RP Servers all the way! haha. I like the WoW Druid best because of the melee (it makes us THAT much better) :rolleyes: but I am soon leaving WoW for EQ2. (probably not for good tho. haha) :)

Played a Druid to 40 and a Necro to 65 in EQ. I liked the druid, I could do just about anything. I loved the Necro. Anything I came agains in the normal course of the game I was more than a match for. I was a big solo fan because of irregular game times. I liked it, but I was just too busy to give them the attention they needed. Played EQ2 for a while after it came out, every month it got more and more boring. If it wasn't for my guild, I would have been gone much earlier.

Just started WoW about a week ago. I have 4 level 10 toons, I enjoy the Druid and Warlock the most. I can't wait until I get home from work so I can finish up the bear form quest and finally begin unlocking our true potential.

Was a 60 Cleric in EQ2 went druid in WoW because the priest was squishy and I was dying waaayyy too much.

being an EQ2 plate healer spoiled me.

I was a 70 Cleric on Terris Thule. I also had a 58 Druid that I used pretty much whenever I needed a break and wanted to solo for a while. I also tried EQ2 for several months as DE Necro and really struggled to immerse myself in it.

I really did enjoy the Druid, but survivability was a major issue. A couple good pops from a 60+ mob and I was toast :)

When I moved to WoW I was going to resurrect the Priest here until I realized that they can only wear cloth! So Druid it was, and I havent been happier in a long time with a toon!

75 Druid in EQ, still going strong. As for wow, I'm trying all sorts of toons. My "main" would have to be my level 21 Troll Rogue (Fleshgrind).

8 Tauren Warrior (Borknagar) -- tank to play with wife's druid
6 Undead Warrior (Benumb) -- solo dps
9 Orc Shaman (Haunted)
6 Undead Priest (Skinlab)
8 Tauren Druid (Moobaby) -- wife's toon
