You're going to want to turn your graphics up for this!

Altar of Malice was the last time we saw this level of detail in the graphics. Sure EQ2 always looks great. But I've waited for a long time to enjoy the mystical symbols and unfamiliar writing on walls. Such detail! I probably have a hundred images saved from AoM and it looks like I am going to get another screenshot treat with Blood of Luclin. In only wish I could've had a house like this. Sanctus Seru is interesting as a house choice, and the crystals are pretty, but this would've been my preference.

Patrolling the Patrollers

I was recently looking through the EQ2i Wiki policies, when I came across an article about Patrolling. I was absolutely amazed … even shocked, to read that literally anyone is able to be a patroller! It actually relies on volunteers! For those of you who are unsure as to exactly what a patroller is, or does, please refer to this article: EQ2i recent changes patrollers to give it its official title.

Now although in essence, I agree with the basic principle of this premise. I can’t help feeling that this should really only be reserved for , and members involved with Wiki in some official capacity, having a proven track record of their EQ2i Wiki activities. These officials also possess access to additional features and tools enabling them to …

Raids

Over the next following weeks/months I'm going to be running through Raids from Chains of Eternity up to Rum Cellar Campaign. You can expect to see new articles being posted under raid categories, including updates on Monster drops and locations.

How to Grind Status in 2018 "Free to Play" Mode

Status Gaining - An October 2018 Update

  • I have no idea when these things changed, but I did notice that the status page on Wikia needs updating. Feel free to change what you confirm from here.
  • There have been changes to the Status points system. Many things that once gave you significant status no longer do. Of particular annoyance on the forums seems to be the loss of 20k+ status gains from each rush order (crafting).
  • If you must 'keep the door open' for a guild, you will need an infusion of about 250k satus every week. Plat is much less of an issue. That's a ballpark figure. You can economize and spend less, but not much less than 150k, so don't sweat it. If you have only 4 or fewer active players, consider giving up the strategist, as …

LU107: Return to Guk is live

GU107 - "Return to Guk" is live!


The ancient city of Guk has rarely known peace, and never for long, but it is not just hostile tribes of trolls or zealot frogloks vying for ownership of its labyrinthine halls. Within the depths of Guk, the Unseen Arcanum still thrives, and the curse of Ykesha threatens all with undeath! Whether motivated by religious conviction, vengeance, or treasure, few have ever returned from within its corridors. Will you?

Rations are low; my supply of vodka and popcorn are near depleted. To remedy this I plan to venture outside and see what tasty vittles I can scrounge up. If luck is on my side, the local store will have restocked.

Where am I?

At level 24 I pressed alt-z and discovered Dungeon Finder. After a couple weeks in Crypt of Agony I finally called it quits with my brilliant career as an agnostic dungeon raider and stepped outside into beautiful Qeynos. However, I only knew it was Qeynos because that was what the map said. In fact, I didn't know anything about the game I had been playing short of the sound emotes made by the skeletal Iskar in CoA (shaktis bloooooze!). So I decided that I would take it slow and complete EVERY quest I could find; starting in the lowbie zones and working my way up.
Two months and a broken mouse later I was still in Karan. Thirsty for new landscapes (I'm sorry The Thundering Steppes, Antonica and of course my beautiful Qeynos), I mariner bell…

Frostfell by Neriak


Well it's that time of year again! New expansion and Frostfell all in one. It's hard not to get all giddy! Time to dance with fauns and hope for rare Santa Glug gifts. Time to leap long and snag the Fogifier/Defogifier, ahem, that is, if you know where it hides. EQ2 has many secrets. Some secrets glitter in the darklight of the fairy fires of Neriak. Like Mrs. Snowman's real motives. Well, who can resist a Chocolaty ninjabread man after all?

Damaging with Fervor and Combat Mitigation - Post 1 of ?

Although I play casually, I think there are so many things to know about EQ2 that it's important to pay attention to the various playstyles. Sometimes, although it isn't my playstyle, a multiboxer will provide an excellent insight where there was only a mystery and some hints.

For example, we all know Fervor is important for DPS, but unless you're raiding, it's unlikely you will get the 100 Fervor that's standard there. Anyway even 40-50 Fervor makes a big difference. But that's not all. Remember the multiboxers I mentioned above? Well they have an insight for all of us players, and it's Combat Mitigation. The more you debuff CM the more damage you do, so in effect CM debuff effects = DPS.

This is one place where it's worth it to hang …

Good Girls and Bad Boys

As I navigate the return to Norrath of my characters, I noticed something I'm not proud of. But perhaps my lack of pride in it is just as limiting as the cause. What I mean is, my female toons are "good" and my male ones are "evil" nearly always. One exception, a male, I decided to roleplay as gay when the gay marriage law finally legitimized many of my friend's marriages. Partly I think I'm repelled by the idea of an "evil" woman. I think women are far more likely to be accused of malfeasance than they are of actually doing it, or even intending it. (Lanys doesn't do it for me as a villain, ymmv.) OTOH, men are more likely to be proud of conning people because it is proof of "street smarts." I think men fear being called naive much …

A Reasonable Item Upgrade Example - Refined, Experimented, and Infused

Happy 4th of July!!

I love the mods in EQ2. Gems you can add to gear (um, I mean, adornments), plus the trippy trio of Refining, Experimenting and Infusing. Little buffs can add up and so I decided to document my latest foray into Minmanxing. As usual, I'm not attempting to max everything out totally or go for Visionary, nor am I using gear made with Raid drops to begin with (that happened back in Skyshrine), etc. That's too much stress. Nice if you can handle the tension, but I'm only reasonably risk tolerant. I do love a chance to take a few risks though, as long as the benefits are there.

So, having a nice pile of rares from my diligence in Twark looking for Shadeweave Buds, I set out to see how far I can currently push crafted gear…

Time out for some GI Joe thoughts

Not sure when I realized that so many players of MMO's were veterans. It's a significant subset of the playerbase. So when I saw this article on Fandom, I just couldn't keep my insights to myself:

http://fandom.wikia.com/articles/gi-joe-failed-capture-younger-generations?li_source=LI&li_medium=wikia-rail

Basically it asks "why is GI Joe not also a favorite of Millenials"? Well it wasn't a favorite of Gen X either (which would be me). Starting around the 1980s, the "hero" of modern day was the hippie, fighting a battle against Big Pharma, Big Corp, and Big Brother. This creates a contrast in the USA with the Vietnam Vets, who didn't drop out and plug in. They went and saw themselves decimated in a futile war with no clear goal that ende…

Statistics Mechanics Update from an Underachiever

(First draft in progress)

There's so much to say about stats and mechanics that this is sure to be a series. For the most part I am imagining that my audience is new to EQ2. But I'm also using it as a refresher for myself because so much has changed since I was playing regularly a few years ago. If you've been playing a while, you probably have more memorized about stats than can be found online, about EQ2.

All games have some stats/mech mystery, but EQ2 has the most secretive system of stats I've encountered. It also changes, often without warning. Since I'm an underachiever, the changes are of casual interest to me. But as an underachiever, my perspective clears up the difference between "must have" and "would be nice" stats. The most…

A typical merc choice example from May 2017

The choice of a mercenary in Everquest II can be an uncertain process. There are so many choices and the choices are different if you are an All Access member or playing for free. I can't speak for the free members, I am All Access, but even so, the choices can seem overwhelming. Each month I get a "Two Mercenary" crate or 500 DBC. Since the crate is worth about 100,000 plat (1/10 of a typical price for a Krono) on the Broker, on a purely economic basis I should choose the DBC. But both of these are not "real money" in the Dollars ($) sense, and what I need most is usually in-game plat. So I generally choose the mercenary crate.

From a merc crate I received Warrick the Stormcaller and by comparison, I like him better than Perrin (the …

The Guise of Pursuit will be available on May 9nd, with GU103: The Menagerie.
