This weekend is DOUBLE exp weekend in EverQuest! To put that into perspective, I gained 10 levels today. To go from 28-38 took my Necro and Shaman MORE than twice as long because groups are lasting longer for me as an Enchanter. We’re talking over a week longer.
People are now also way more spread out. There weren’t 30 picks of Unrest and Guk — Â in fact there were only 2 or 3 at most.
That means there are fewer people, which also means more mobs per zone. Today we were pulling gain pulls non-stop and I able to rake in an hour every 20-30 minutes until things slowed down in the mid 30s.
I can often be quoted for saying the best part of EQ is the journey — the leveling experience. I find it noteworthy that this journey is fun whether it’s 10 levels in a day, or a 6 month endeavor. Time seems to play almost no part in my enjoyment beyond the excitement of watching the exp flow in very fast.
Something about succeeding in EverQuest gives me the urge to keep going.
Our goal (my friend and I leveling characters together) is 50 by the end of the holiday weekend. Anyone else enjoying EQ this weekend?
Spent the first couple hours today in Unrest basement, got to 30. Then (against my wishes) the group went to Mistmoore which was a disaster, it always is. Went to lguk, worked our way to camping ass/sup, and my wife and I both got guises. There’s something really great about finding a group that sticks together for hours. We both also found that we missed “camping,” games now really do not emulate that sort of gameplay at all. We’re both having a blast on Agnarr.
I miss camping too! 😀 Glad I’m not the only one.
You guys made great progress today. We’re just about in a range where we can group together in-game and form quite a great party.
