right on i wouldn't mind learning to code part i also play for these reasonsHabit.
When EQ came out several RL friends played it. EQ Lan parties, etc.
Now, its mostly for the social interaction and satisfaction of problem solving raid encounters, and writing code to automate various parts of the process.
that is awesome thank you for sharing.I like a lot of the other old guys here started gaming on 5 1/4" floppies. c: //b: <enter> , b: dir/w <enter>, b: needforspeed.exe <enter> .... yay mono color cream spinach graphics.. lol And I just never looked back.
EQ was the first really 3D game and it totally blew me away. I still remember that shiver down my spine the first time a skeleton cackled at me before promptly beating me to death outside of Felwithe. I have literally tried a thousand titles in search of that again and just never found it. I still play other games - but I fell in love with Norrath that first night and have been here in some way - live, P99, EQ2, emu for 24 years since. Compared to some I am still a newb even now, I haven't mastered every single trick. But I have watched some come and go - bard kiting, the shaker shockers, donal's chestplate heal chains <pre-nerf>. The love is just still there.
untill the next expansion comes outBecause i'm almost beat it... so close
hahaha thats funny
I'll actually be 53 in a couple weeks. I started on Karana. While I'd never want to play anywhere with rules other than FV. I sure miss Karana. I started right as Kunark was released my first toon was an Iksar SK I maxed him out and got his 1.0. But SKs got nerfed and an Iksar SK had huge XP modifier penalties. So I sold that account. I got quite a lot for it. And I created the Troll Daddy the Shaman I still call my main to this day. Man he was a beast taking down Veliuus raid mobs solo. Soloing dragons. That was a feat. Like 4 people in Karana managed to do it once in the Veliuus era. I spent my free time there. Taking loot for my friends. Peerless Dragon was no joke at one time. God I love EverQuestI'm 63 in a couple of weeks so my perspective is probably a little different. I grew up playing pen and paper Dungeons And Dragons games. Everquest was the first and still the best I believe game to bring a world like that to an MMO. I had played Ultima Online but it was different. The only thing I really liked about UO is if someone made a smartass comment you could kill them and loot them clean. Anywhere at anytime. So I became a skilled dueler before EQ. But it was the comraderies from my first guild. The feeling I still get when I get a piece of loot for a toon either for me or for another person. That is what set the hook and kept me in love with EQ long after my friends left.
