Romper Stamper

One of the first things i talked myself into doing once i upgraded my character to a heroic version was to unlock and hire a mercenary.  I decided to go with Stamper Jeralf which should be no shock to anyone I’d imagine.  It seems to be the most popular and used mercenary and with good reason.  He’s a Ratonga Inquisitor

Sword of the Bloodmoon

Shortly after completing my Sedition, a few of us began work on the Epic Repercussions quest chain to upgrade our fabled weapons to the mythical versions.  Little did i know that the quest i just completed to obtain the epic weapon itself can be completely bypasses now before the upgrade.  Something i wish i knew before all the time spent doing

Gone Fishin’

Ding 90 Shadowknight!  I’m sure most people probably did these 5 levels on their heroic characters in a night or two, but I’ve been taking my time.  Well, maybe not so much going slow as spending way too much time on housing and not enough on anything else.  Either way, it finally happened and what better way than by slaughtering

Prestige House

I love housing.  Since nobody does it better than EQ2, i decided to give myself a little upgrade.  I traded up from the standard 7-room house in Neriak to a Felwithe Mansion prestige house.  What an upgrade indeed.  While my favorite house was the 7 year vet reward house, which obviously wasn’t going to happen, i went with what i

Sedition

My indecision regarding what to do first with my brand new level 85 character only lasted a few days.  The obvious journey would have been to just go and finish the character off to 95.  Where’s the fun in that though?  For some inexplicable reason, i decided to start on my epic weapon quest. Looking over the list of tasks

Heroic Characters

Today’s the day that SoE allowed everyone to start or upgrade one EQ2 character to level 85 for free.  I took advantage of this by upgrading my Shadowknight, which was level 75 at the time.  While it only gave me 10 levels in total, it did provide me with a much needed gear upgrade as well. I think i was

Public Dungeons

     If the EQ Next reveal did anything for me, it had me hopping back into EQ2 for a few days.  Despite never having a max level character, there’s just something about this game that always has me hopping back on from time to time.  It’s usually the fantastic housing system that gets me but this time it happened to

Housing

It’s no secret how much i absolutely love housing in my MMO’s.  It’s a game feature that can not only add hours upon hours of replayability but can also drive an economy.  This is one of the main features often overlooked or tossed aside as simply “fluff” in today’s MMO’s.  This is a huge mistake and one i think game

EQ2 Mount Check

     I was lucky enough to have created my account long enough ago to qualify for the free prowler mount given to everyone last year.  The rest of my mounts are all rewards from quests in certain zones.  There’s a rather large variety but I’m trying to stay away from any mounts available via the cash shop.  I also find

Shadowknight Sexiness

I’m really digging the armor selection so far on my SK.  Granted, they do a really good job at hiding just how ugly the character models are, but i still like it.  Hurray for appearance slots and capes as well.  Yet more options that seem to be overlooked in newer MMO’s.  Being a huge fashion diva in my MMO’s always

Better Late Than Never

It’s 8.5 years later and I’m playing EQ2 for the first time.  I’ve had this game installed for almost 3 years and never got around to actually giving it a shot.  It’s a shame really because the game is surprisingly solid and quite fun.  Albeit it’s slow and clunky at times but it’s almost 9 years old so it’s expected.
