The Agnarr Grind is Underway (and already over for some)

EverQuest’s newest Timelocked Progression Server launched on Wednesday, only 3 days ago. The typical launch issues plagued us. We had login server issues causing most of us to not be able to get in for hours and hours after the server opened, but any MMO veteran has learned to shrug it off.

Want to know something crazy? People are already level 50. Lots of people.

What level are we? The group I’ve been playing with are all around level 10-12.

Daybreak was pretty cool about timing a 50% bonus exp weekend to coincide with the launch and Memorial Day here in the U.S. It started yesterday (Friday) at 12 noon. The bonus exp weekend plus the natural boost to exp on Agnarr, and the fact that people can use +25% exp potion from the cash shop, sorta explain why people were able to max level so fast.

I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t at least a little bit bummed that people sped their way to the end, but it’s out of my control. I’d also be lying if I told you that their actions have no impact on me or the other players. Those people are now introducing items into the economy, farming plat, etc. All of those things heavily influence EQ since most items in the game are trade-able — even max level gear.

Despite the external factors and my own intense urge to rush, we’ll be taking it at a comfortable pace. To do anything else would burn me out, sacrifice my RL obligations, and result in a faster exodus.

If you’re playing on Agnarr, jump on Discord and join us. Always looking for people to fill a group.

Side note: QuickCast was bumped this week because we were gone Thursday/Friday and playing EQ this weekend.

      To translate, I think Keen, he is saying that every 4 levels should net you an extra level meaning that they would be way ahead of you in levels, and I think it is some sort of insult also at how you are bad at playing an 18+ year old game. I’m not sure why he would be insulting you as the mechanic is pay to win, but I’ll go ahead and break down the harder concepts for my math challenged friend down there.

      So assuming that levels 1-12 require 1,673,000 XP (based on limited info I’ve got) if you had an extra 25% that would be an extra 418,250 or almost another level. (Level 13 Requiring 469,000 XP)(of course none of this takes into account the race impacts) Ultimately this isn’t the flat XP level requirement you are thinking of GameGlitches.

      I’m going to go out on a limb and say, stay in school GameGlitches. Your education is vital to your overall ability to ensure you prosper in the future. Take a class in applied mathematics. https://www.khanacademy.org/math/pre-algebra/pre-algebra-math-reasoning would be a good start. I’d suggest a grammar class too, but lets be honest if you start making the big bucks with math you can pay someone to write that shit for you.

    Man you really needs to calm down and maybe get some sunshine. The idea of laughing at someone for not using RMT/pay to win options is next level sad.

    Not really sure why it makes someone bad either if a) they don’t use RMT to increase levelling speed or b) they don’t level fast. It is a game to be played at whatever frequency/playstyle the player enjoys.

    It’s people with an attitude like yours that has become a plague on the world of online gaming. It saddens me that it has become impossible to play anything these days without coming across this type of behaviour, and even sadder that it has appeared on this blog of all places. Why are you even posting here?
