This is what you're here for. Makes traveling Norrath an absolute breeze. Makes warping unnecessary. Probably the best plugin in existence for MQ2.
Awesome plugin. Nuff said
Amazing function, definitely enhance boxing group movement.
Fundamentally the No1 utility. Use it to travelto a zone or nav to a mob/npc/pc in a zone, it just saves you so much time and helps make EQ fun!
Braniac is a genius. This is a necessary plugin for controlling your group or even just lazily walking to that vendor across the POK.
I can't state how vital this plugin has been in helping me to manage movement of my boxing group. Navigation was the single most time consuming task I had while boxing. Not anymore thanks to MQ2Nav.
This is the core of everything. The number ONE quality of life enhancement of EverQuest. The highest praise, is not high enough.
Absolute fundamental to the MQ2 experience
Agree with microscope, this is the best plugin on Redguides.
Would be hard without!
