EverQuest’s New Time PoP-Locked Progression Server: Agnarr

I’m going to get sucked back into trying the EverQuest progression server thing again. They are releasing a new “PoP-Locked” server which means that the server will not progress beyond the Planes of Power era. Not a terrible place to stop.

My previous dives into the progression servers didn’t end well.

I first started on their Phinigel server, but that was borked beyond belief by the botting and abuse of the system. I wasn’t pleased by how that whole played out. Daybreak broke their promises on how they would unlock content, and the server communities were just garbage.

Then I went back and played on the Ragefire/Lockjaw progression after Kunark came out. Again, I wasn’t enchanted by the experience due to how the servers were being run and how the communities ended up shaking out.

Now I’m throwing myself back into the fire here. Do I expect the communities to be any better? No. I think it will be the exact same players who played on the other servers. Do I think Daybreak may at least keep their word this time? I hope so. They are being more direct in how they present the server this time. Before it had way too much open-endedness and “we’ll see how this goes.”

I’m not sure what class I’m going to play. I’m thinking that I may want something that can solo, but EverQuest is triple or quadruple the amount of fun when played with a group.

If you want to play together, I’m game. I won’t be forming a guild or anything, but I’ll join one if there’s a guild out there that groups together regularly. Let me know if you plan to play.

Agnarr releases Wednesday, May 24, 2017.

  • Should also mention that this is a True-box server meaning you cannot multibox! If you are playing two characters or more at once you will be banned.

    • To be clear regarding True Box you can multibox, you just can’t do it from one computer. Boxing with separate computers is acceptable under the policy. Many people will be doing this, same as Phinigel, but it prevents things from devolving into the mage-box army shitshow that was Ragefire. Personally I think it’s a good compromise between IsBoxer full groups and the no boxing whatsoever policy of P99.
