    No idea, Lenas just hooked me up when I started with a full suit.

    I just started playing on here over the weekend and so far I am having a pretty good time. Only have my chars up to level 5 so far, but it's definitely giving me the old EQ vibe with a few quality of life improvements, since the population isn't that high having POK books is great because looking for ports would be a nightmare. The few people I have interacted with have been nice, community seems good. A lot better than playing on P99 was, once I got up in levels there it seemed like a total poop sock fest that I had no intentions of taking part of, plus with all the years of kunark the server was just too top heavy. If anybody wants to group up sometime you can pm my char with the same name. Right now I am boxing Rogue/Enchanter/Cleric. I tend to play some weird times on the days I am working from home when work stuff is slow, so I solo a lot, but i will also usually be playing about 9pm cst - 11 pm cst during the week if anyone wants to group up.

    Just wanted to say thanks for trying to hook me up with stuff and/or buffs. Pretty much anything would help at this point. My play time is pretty variable on the weekends, but during the week I will probably be on for awhile.

    Any forumbros happen to have a tailor? I have swatches and heady kiolas made but I'd rather see if I can have someone do the combines for some Wu's or Cured Silk stuff rather than try to skill it up myself (only made some Raw Silk at this point).

    Got my Monk/Sham/Druid combo up to 24 today think I'm gonna try and ditch Unrest for some Sol A next time I get to log in, we'll see how that goes

    Trades aren't something I have put any time into yet, which is stupid because I'll probably end up doing the 8th shawl three times.

    A good chunk of the server has pre-skilled up tradeskills in anticipation for Velious shawls, ask in /ooc and you'll probably get a bite as a new player.

    I was not a fan of Unrest. Sol A was good.

    It's roughly 1% for the low level (blackburrow, everfrost) drops and 1.5% for the higher level (paw, permafrost, sebilis, hole) drops.

    Guild mate got a COF reward from a higher level drop. Also rumored you can get an ODS for the high level and an equal chance for a title across all ore turn-ins. I am hoarding low level drops on my cleric hoping I can get her a title because I already got one on my main during the Kunark event.

    For any dads out there worried about end-game scene being competitive, we are going into Velious with a new agreement between the top two guilds for a two week rotation (to match patch days) on new content. Also, Temerity (top guild from EQMac, only ones to see Quarm) have started to reform - though they will probably stay small for the foreseeable future as old/new members trickle in.

    One funny thing I've noticed about EQMac only players that are now on TAKP, they almost universally have no idea when features were added to the game or with what expansions. They started day 1 with POP and never got an update, so thats all they knew. I see people asking every day when AA's were added, or focus effects, or Jaggedpine / Warrens and wondering if they are coming with Velious lol.

    Did all of level 36 and half of level 37 in Splitpaw and didn't see any ore. Zyzzik didn't get his first ore drop in paw til after ~400 kills.

    Gonna pick back up grinding away in Paw in the AM.

    F9 to get to third-person. F9 twice, DEL to zoom out, and Alt+Up to raise the camera is ideal imo.

    Mouse wheel to get to third person wasn't added to EQ til like 5 years after release or something.

    Cool I'll try that

    Is the server down or am I retarded?

    edit: server was down, cannot rule out retardation, though

    Hoping my schedule allows some serious poopsocking this weekend, finally on the home stretch of the 50 to 60 grind and so happy I don't have to do it in Kunark again.

    Stable release, amazing to see such a polished product with just one year in between expansions.
