returning 60 druid

Post by Draeca » Sat Jul 07, 2012 7:52 pm

hey druids!
returning after many years. quit around pop release. spent last few weeks with low level toons relearning eq. now I have my druid who I wanna have for a main again. I feel I'm ready now. from scanning the boards here I see a lot of good info, but I have specific questions. does a lvl 60 druid with 6aa level or grind aa? and is hotzone best place to get lots of aa? solo or molo. just want fast results cuz I feel I'm far behind.

Molo is probably the best way to get exp. I too returned recently. I left after PoP came out as well. First things first, get yourself a Melee Damage merc (Rogue) and find a mob in a hot zone I think its black feather roost for your level that is KoS to you. Pull it with snare and DoT it. If the Mob is kos to your likely every time you recast snare it will come after you again regardless of how much damage it is taking. While chasing you around in circle your merc with constantly backstab it and voila. Easy way to kill hot zone mobs as they are much tougher than old EQ mobs and have a lot more hp. I used this tactic a lot in the steppes with the spiders, and had a lot of success.

Also work towards a set of defiant gear they are suitable until 70-75.

One more thing to add, make sure you get your /claim and get your free mount if your account is old enough. While riding a mount you can still cast spells, med and move around at the same time. Very helpful.

/Veteran reward gets you some great free AA's as well that are on different timers but very helpful.

Hopefully people still read this. Haha.

I stopped playing EQ way back around Luclin/PoP. Recently returned to find all my gear gone, pretty much. I've only logged in briefly and find everything very new and confusing. Which is kinda fun, but also a little frustrating at times.

What can people recommend for a naked 57 druid? I have basically my nature walker gloves/wrist/helmet, but nothing else noteworthy. Immediately, I want to farm up some levels/money, mostly money so that I can at least start to gear myself. I'm playing on Cazic, if anyone wants to recommend anything specific there.

Lastly, I see comments about a /claim and /Veteran command? What do these do and is there anything else that Sony hasn't told me about that can help out? Thanks for all the info!

Hello and welcome back. Using the command /claim will bring up a table of items that you are able to claim on your current account. This can range anywhere from a mount to defiant armor. Now adays defiant armor is the best that you can get and is relevant up until lvl 70 or so.

The /veteranrewards are Free AA's that you can get starting at level 1 that have great benefits. Hotkey theses AA's to your hotbars to use them, theres an EXP bonus (Lesson of the day), Buff one (steadfast servant) and many more.
