View Full Forums : New Everquest Server to be voted on

12-31-2008, 02:44 AM
Sony is planning in January(or was it March?) to begin voting on a new server. Their news link, is busted at the moment sending you to Everquest 2 at the moment so, I will not bother to link it until it is fixed. I am curious as to your thoughts, what you would like to see, active or retired players as well, as I share my own of what I would like to see(even though I retired, again).

Personally, I would like a Trilogy Server with Legacy of Ykesha thrown in. That would be Original Everquest, with the original zones as well mind you, using the old Highpass, Commons, Sro, Nro, etc. I would also like to see Keys made to enter zones like Sleeper's again, taking off the current level requirement. I would also like to have Paw put back to gnoll land, as well as the Revamped Cazic Thule, Droga, Nurga stay the same. With Veksar, Jaggedpine, Nedaria's, Stonebrunt, included as well. I would like to see them drop the dragon off the Veeshan's peak off, or severely nerf him. Oddly enough, I would like to see how players can handle current Peak. And Plane of Knowledge disabled.

With Velious, I would like to see old plane of mischief back again, whether they would hop it back into Temple, we should see(they lost the data they will not get it back). Other things I would like to see, fixing up some things in Velious, like adding ranger/druid plane of growth armor quests. Other things tradeskills specific to the server. All the instancing mobs such as Guard Freklin, removed. I would also like them to add in the % heals as well for consumption, both shaman and druid, as well as droping some levels on spells to smooth out the healing curve starting around level 34.

Your thoughts?

Expansions up to Vellious.
Origional POM... including the ToV run to get there.

No PoKnowledge... if you want to go somewhere find a port or run there.

Fix the boats and put them back in.


Hmm, I guess this is becoming a Pootle Nostalga server... back in the good old days of EQ.... I doubt many of todays players would enjoy it too much.

WAAA I Diezored in Kurnark, wat it means I have to go find my corpse to gets my stuffs bak?

I kinda liked the respawn with gear mechanic they added with Sod, I would like them to leave that part in, would help out alot of casual players, people doing fear runs, but, they would have to run back to get ressed though. And it would help keep corpses from littering alot of places.

I play again on a old school EQ server, expansions up to Vellious. After Vellious, EQ just went down the tubes for me.

A Classic server may not be an option when they release the voting this month, but there is another thread in the Off Topic section about a formal petition for a Classic server. It wasn't posted in this thread because they are separate topics, but are a bit related.
