Well, since you've been gone, they've added three new expansions, 450 more zones, 15 new classes, 4 new races, and tons of new spells and upgrades. The level cap has also been raised to 4000.

I recommend starting as a Sportsman class, you don't have to worry about ANYTHING since faction is not an issue as you are born famous, so nobody aggroes you. You can explore all the new zones at level 1 if you wanted with him.

Well, if you can't find food they created a new skill called 'Cannibalize', which effectively allows you to eat yourself. You lose a full level of experience, but you never need food again! This ability is available at level 2555 and costs 200 AA's.

Since you've been gone, they've upgraded Moss Snakes to Leviathans. They are now level 350 and can deci-hit for over 7,000,000 HP.

There is no such thing as 'loot' anymore. Now everything has to be quested. At the completion of the quest, each piece of equipment is melded onto your body so the people at SOE don't have to hear complaints about people's gear getting stolen. They finally shut down the Station Exchange because too many people were complaining about it.

Nobody can 'give away' pp. Platinum, when obtained, is in the form of IOU's since all the precious metals in Norrath were squandered by meandering adventurers. Platinum was too expensive to maintain so now the main form of currency is nylon. So now what you are looking for is ns (nylon strings).

You won't be able to do much of anything at level 63. Since you are such a low level you will maybe find 1 ns every 200 hours.

I hope this answers the majority of your questions. After being away from EQ for such a long time, many different things have changed.

The food thing is a real problem now, as Magnu pointed out, but water is worse. If you run out of water, all your mana drains away and doesn't come back for about 1 hour. Your cleric may be at a slight disadvantage during that time. But bind wound now heals for 500 and the mobs at your level don't hit too hard, just make sure the tank doesn't move during the binding.

But you will be up to level 4000 in several thousand hours, not so bad really.

The Sportsman class is excellent, I play a Gnoll sportsman, and they are a lot more fun than the pirate class. And wow can I fish! Just today I caught a 200 pound hunky merman, I have him in a tank, it's awesome. Oh, did we mention the castle thing, you get one automatically if you find a vacant one or oust the owners.

Don't make me rape/pillage you. The hybrid classes of the pirate are sooo much more fun then a sportsman. My Robo-pirate and my nirate(ninja/pirate) own all.

Sigh, how long have you been playing your pirate, you should know the rape/pillage combination is not effective on a sportsman do to the skunk essence we apply before battle, though I will admit your ninja/pirate could get close enough to give it a try at least, and your robo could overcome the spell, if he didn't clank.

Yes, that comes as a vibrating attachement with the /relief #1 and #2 terminal USB attachement, it's a side effect of some of the pirate line of rape/pillage spells.

And my merman in the tank in the castle seems to have a nice line of spells that work with that also, some very interesting casting messages too Smiley: blush.

Oh by the way, they're releasing an expansion called "Birds of a Feather" tomorrow; supposed to up the level cap to 5000.

/sigh. And just when I'd hit 2546...

The divorce lawyer didn't really work well as an NPC on the test server, I think they decided to make it a playable class. Coming straight off the tutorial the DL class will have a spell that enables it to take all coin and tradeable items from any PC it encounters. I believe this was a concession to the PVP people out there.

actually you could probably just cancel your account. see in the last expansion that came out 1 hour ago there was a new race/class introduced. Race: Allakhazam, Class: Walker Texas Ranger. Well I was the first to start a "Allakhazam Texas Ranger" and I killed everything in every zone with one enormous round-house kick to the face, but prior to this I successfully banged every white lvl 3,583 Pamela Anderson (a race released in the "******* of Norrath" expansion). So there is nothing left to kill and I am having real trouble looking for a group.



UPDATE: 2 hours later and nothing has respawned in fear of another devastating /kick by me. i win.




__________
LvL 5,001 Allakhazam
(he starts at lvl 5,000. the /kick got me to lvl 5,001 from every xp in the game.)

Well, yeah..come back. Just don't pick a monk.

Leave it SOE to nerf the monks....again!!!

To wit...

Flying kick now leaves us vunerable to Counterstrike/Cajones;
The only item an Iksar monk can now forage is listed as "a day old burrito" (x2 poison counter added).
Whirlwind Discipline is now linked to the "Whirl Till You Hurl", limiting it's usefulness.
On a random basis, "Feign Death" becomes "Actual Death".

But the unkindest cut of all???

Monk Epic 3.0:

CAZIC THULE'S TUBE O' FIXODENT

MAGIC ITEM LORE ITEM NO RENT
Skill: Hand to Hand Atk Delay:100
DMG: 2 Dmg Bonus: 1
CHA: -20
Required level of 70.
Effect: Orthodontism (Combat)
WT: 20.0 Size: HUGE
Class: MNK
Race: HUM IKS DRK

Spell Description: (Orthodontism): Renders target's speech unintelligeble, and puts user on top of targets' hate list.

Thanks SOE.....
Jerks.

for all those who dont know

the pirate class got more popular when the druids went on strike, something about animal abuse on large bats and large rats in newbie zones or something. Well all their shouting and protesting from the norrathian peta organization produced a massive amount of "green house gasses." due to the shear mass of the gas, the globe heated at 500x the normal rate, and sadly.... velious melted into nothingness. the resulting rise in the sea level left erudin (now known as alantis) swamped. an ogre wizard known as asshat thought if lighting a match in the outhouse helped remove the stench of his gas on burrito night, that maybe a fireball would clear the skies of the green house gasses.

well he was right.... kinda

the fireball he shot up struck luclin, bringing half of it down in the form of a giant asteroid which wiped out greater and lesser faydark. the aftershocks of the impact caused a massive earthquake which led to a tsunami which destroyed almost everything in kunark.... there were few survivors...

the resulting wold wide bedlam and flooding made it a prime enviroment for pirates.


the moral of my story...

life without caffine is a life not worth living... sorry for wasting everyones time
