Also go genocide skeletons for bonechips in East Freeport and sell them to necros for 10p a stack. You can buy some starting gear with that money to make things easier.

Yes bards are wonderful. Invest in good weapons, and invest your starting points in Charisma.

Bards definitely expected to pull, what you do exactly will depend on group though as you can kind of do anything, but Mana Song and CC are probably your most important things

Then you just hit 1 2 3 1 2 3 on your keyboard after each song casts and the macros will cast the first, second, and third songs on your spell gem bar over and over. You can keep 3 songs going at a time doing that. 80% of bards are incapable of figuring out this simple concept.

Hey there is a level 6 druid from the thread who needs a buddy. His name is "Kios" you should message him. Hes in butcherblock right now.

Hey Kios, here are the spots I showed you in butcherblock, you can probably get to level 10 pretty easily hunting here. You could probably do the dwarf skeletons in the south right now. I would try them out if I were you. Theres more of them near an undead spire to the west, and a ruined druid circle a little further west. I think they are level 5. You can kill those easily all the way to 10.

In the north, Krags, Goblins and Scarabs can get you to level 6-7.
In the south, dwarf skeletons, goblins, and scarabs are going to take you to level 10.

Check crushbone periodically though and see if people want to group up with you.

Easily. There are two options:

Sorry, I mean blue servers to mean PvE servers, red is colloquially used to refer to PvP servers (where names above players' heads are red, as opposed to blue on a PvE server)
Project1999 Blue and Green have the horrible problem of being overpopulated for an era where people know way too much about the game. If you experience or observe the endgame scene on those servers, it's filled with bizarre rules, drama, ban baiting, etc. When you add in this level of player knowledge and changes to mechanics as a result, you sort of lose the whole "classic" appeal they're going for
>>
>>493520
Yes, I’ve always wondered what p1999 is missing. A server where Seal Team just kills everyone who dares go near a raid mob and the entire experience is basically just 1 mega raid guild vs everyone else on the server. You think that pvp will solve the problems that you have laid out, but in reality all it does is amplify them. The only reason it works on Red currently is because the pop is nonexistent. You are never going to be able to kill someone and take their camp because they are either going to have max level guildies guarding the camp or just griefing the shit out of you if you do successfully kill them. Ahhh yes the classic rallos zek experience, I remember it like it was yesterday.
>>
>>493536
Is Seal Team even still on green? I don't think I've seen them lately.
>>
>>493536
I disagree. On a server like P99 Blue/Green, the only vectors of skill are how long you're able to sit at your computer waiting for a camp to open or a raid mob to spawn and, if it's a raid mob, your ability to tag the mob first. Neither of these things are deep or challenging. At best, you'll be placed in a situation where you have to defeat the engaged mob under stressful circumstances, like before a train you've created wipes you.

In a PvP environment, there are more opportunities to outplay your opponents in either a direct or indirect way. A direct way could be killing them, forcing them to leave, or preventing them from taking what you want. An indirect way could be cleverly avoiding a bad fight and killing what you want before they realize.

If your entire goal is a mostly chill/comfy leveling experience with no interest in the endgame, then I would agree that PvE servers are for you. If you're interested in subverting the monotony of camp disputes and interplayer conflicts with more direct action and opportunities to succeed because of differences in player skill, PvP servers are the way to go. I assure you that the PvP community today is nothing like what you encountered on Rallos Zek, for better or worse. Red99 is a dead server not worth exploring simply because it has been open for over ten years now, but there are newer servers, like the one mentioned above launching this week.
>>
>>492553
>>493603
Is this pvp server on the same type as green? (as in start full classic then release update until velious)
>>
>>493603
I think you have a highly romanticized outlook on what a p99 pvp server would look like. Every single poopsocker on green is in one single guild. The same is also about to be true on blue (again). It is the inevitable conclusion of any p99 server. I don’t feel like it is necessary to explain why this leads to an incredibly boring pvp environment. You are either in <Guild> or you don’t get to play the game. This is only exacerbated by player knowledge, as not only will this one guild have a commanding grip on all of the loot in the game (I’m not exaggerating) which allows their members to continue to get stronger while simultaneously denying anybody else the chance to ever catch up. Yeah sure every once in awhile somebody will troll a raid pull or whatever, but it will be irrelevant in the grand scheme of things. I am curious as to whether or not you play p99, as I feel this is the blaringly obvious outcome to anybody who is familiar with the raid scene on either blue or green. The same thing will happen on any other private server, the only question there is to answer is how long it will take to reach that point. I suspect it won’t take long. By the time you think you would have “subverted the monotony of a camp” or any of the other romanticized ideas you have, you will already have gotten an ice comet dropped on your head from 3 max level wizards for stepping anywhere close to a camp somebody has already claimed.

What's the situation on blue these days? I haven't played in a year or a little longer. I was in Riot and we basically steamrolled every target every pop day.

All I ever did was log in and half afk for dkp and it's so mind numbingly boring it kind of ruined the game for me.

>>493621
Yeah, but this one might go past Velious. I'm not sure how far exactly, though. Probably depends on the population.

>>493639
For one, this new server is not a Project 1999 server. I've been playing emulated EQ PvP servers since 2008, including Red99 (from launch for about 4-5 years), and I have a pretty intimate knowledge of how Blue99 and Green99 played out (friends in IB, TR, TMO, Seal Team). Top guilds on EQ servers typically consist of a small amount of core players carrying a swarm of bad players. This applies to PvP servers as well, and smaller, more coordinated groups / underdogs have a fighting chance if they play smart. Poopsocking alone is not going to afford the average warm body a smooth experience in the rest of the game. If your entire goal is to "win," you will either need to A) get organized and challenge the top guild or B) join the top guild. A majority of camps in the game are not under the chokehold you think they are, but if you show up to King Tranix or the manastone camp, expect a fight instead of a queue.

PvP servers are not perfect, but at least you can influence interplayer conflict without resorting to playing petitionquest with GMs. I frequently play in a small group (~6-8 players), and we do very well on every server.

>if your goal is to “win” you will either need to organize against the top guild or join the top guild
By saying this, all you do is prove my point. Even you know it is inevitable. Idk what supposed servers you have been playing on, but they must be very low pop in order to actually have the experience that you proclaim to have. On a high pop server your group of 6-8 underdogs would be an annoyance at best. The same can be said about all of this supposed skill expression you think exists in EQ pvp. Irrelevant when you get zerged by one guild. I’m pretty sure Seal Team has raided more than 1 raid target with over 100 people.
>but then I will just troll the pulls and get them all killed, so skillful!

>>493980
What is your desired outcome if you think it's unreasonable to beat the top guild or join them if you want to kill raid mobs? Instances? Rotations? There have been plenty of EQ emu PvP servers where numbers don't mean everything. A large zerg guild can be dismantled by a smaller and more skilled guild. This has happened on many occasions. I've won large scale PvP fights where the enemy force has massive number advantages. As an example, our guild on Red99 zoned into KC with 80 people against an enemy force of 130. The zone desynced, and we lost 45 people during the lag, while they lost 1. When the lag settled, we won the fight 35v130. Other examples would be guilds like Fish Bait from old VZTZ days having multiple times more players than other guilds, but they were ineffective. A single group of good players can wipe out a raid force of dozens of players with smart play (and I don't mean training).

It's an uphill battle and not something I'd recommend for your first character. If you decide to go with it though it shouldn't be too hard to find a druid willing to port a new player to the Commonlands where you can meet up with your dark elf buddy. Your biggest issue then besides getting killed by everyone and everything is getting access to new spells since even ogres and trolls hate you and won't sell you shit without grinding rep. Most of these problems are only rough at early levels when you don't have the tools to deal with them and quickly turn into minor inconveniences later on.
>>
>>494111
>Give it to me straight.
Don't play Iksar if its your first character. The troubles they have to endure for being "Super Evil" are not something that is going to be fun for a new player. Its manageable if you know Everquest well, but its going to be miserable if you are new. Troll is just as good, if not better, because it has more starting stats and the same regeneration bonus. You are still "Evil" but you are evil and aligned with the DarkElves and Ogres. So you can use their towns and outposts to vendor/train/buy spells. Barbarian is also a really solid pick for shaman but doesnt get the regen bonuses that work so well with shaman spells but you can visit all the "Good" cities, and there aren't guards all over that will destroy you in 2 seconds. Ogre is the "meta" pick for shaman because its technically the best at 60 once you have like 300,000 platinum worth of bought gear/spells and raid gear. The spell "Torpor" which make iksar/troll regen less useful costs 100,000p. Troll is better before you get to that point, but only like 0.5% less than ogre when you get to the very very end. Go troll, you won't regret it. My shaman is a troll.

Dark Elf is a pretty shit race for shadowknight too. Ogre/Troll are much better, but I dont want to be someone to push meta choices.

okay so i'm level 7, i'm too high for the ice goblins in the area but i think i'm too low for anything else. i started killing gnolls at the entrance to blackburrow, i went inside and got instakilled by a pat so i really don't want to go back in again. is there anywhere else i could train? hoping the gnoll fang quest is enough to get me to 8, i mostly wanted to get meditate before i go to qeynos/gfay. i'll be able to afford all the level 9 spells i need (including SoW) no problem so i'm not worried about that.
>>
>>494755
Just power through the level on anything that cons blue in the area. Shaman is rough before you get meditate. Have you tried the gnolls at the entrance to blackburrow outside the dungeon? I think theres like 3-4 of them and they are on a 6 minute spawn probably.

that was the problem i was having, those gnolls are the only thing conning as blue to me. but yeah i'm just doing the ones outside of the entrance to blackburrow. hoping i can get enough fangs to power through to 8. if nothing else the shitty weapons are good plat for my spells.

>>494961
Druid is the far better solo leveler, shaman is better if you want to still be able to easily(ish) get group. Either way I probably wouldn’t stick with cleric if you are mostly planning on soloing.
>>
>>494969
well how bad is Cleric solo, like can it go just kinda slow using healing and meleeing or is it just totally helpless

i much prefer cleric race+flavor but if its just gonna become unplayable at 20 or whenever then i wont want to stick with it
>>
>>494979
>well how bad is Cleric solo
Very. You can sort of blast undead like a really weak wizard but it's slow and incredibly inefficient later on compared to letting someone else beat them up while you heal. Roll a druid or shaman for healing/support with much better soloing options.

Im going too crazy being low level I gotta stop rerolling but I keep regretting my decisions

I have 22 Ranger, 16 Druid, 16 Ench, 9 Cleric, and now 7 Shaman and I dunno what to do, I like the cleric but it can't solo which is important to me, Ranger was a lot of fun but the damage on archery has fallen off pretty bad and seems like itll probably never improve cause there's not a lot of options for bow upgrades that arent 10k+ (I have runed oak bow), Enchanter and Druid both suffer cause I kind of hate charm, I made a Shaman cause I thought it seemed like it fits what I need but I'm kind of just so burnt out on 1-12 that I can barely keep going

I'm going crazy I need help I have no idea what to do I mostly solo sometimes duo but never party, I don't like charm, I do like running fast, huge amounts of downtime kinda bothers me but normal amount is ok, and I'd like to be a gnome if I can, definitely my favorite race
>>
>>494961
EQ is not a solo game. Cleric is a good class. Shaman is a shitter magnet, its a great class, but all the shitters seem to play them. Druid... well idk what druid is supposed to do. They can heal a little bit and port a lot.
>>
>>495025
>I'm going crazy I need help
How can I help you Anon?
>>
>>495025
Ranger is a shit class.
Druid is the worst healer, and generally not that desired in groups.
Cleric is the best raid healer and a good party healer. Doesn't bring much utility.
Shaman is the best party healer, brings the best buffs out of the healers.
Enchanter is the best party support and CC.

> I don't like charm, I do like running fast, huge amounts of downtime kinda bothers me but normal amount is ok
Go Troll Shaman, the reason being shamans at level 24 can eat their HP for more mana. When you combine troll regen with the regeneration spell, it results in less downtime.
>>
>>495025
Bard

Is the best solo class, duos and parties really easily and well with anyone, has 0 downtime, can do any play style, runs the fastest, has charm but doesn't need it, can change race with masks (but there's no Gnome mask)
>>
>>495055
>but there's no Gnome mask
mask of tinkering
>>495025
enchanter is the best solo speed farmer endgame since charm is the most overpowered thing in everquest, but shaman can solo technically harder camps once you get torpor at level 60 and gear
shaman just has a very shitty early game, and it requires a pretty expensive skill to become an endgame powerhouse
ranger requires a lot of gear and is a decent DPS at best, but it's not better than warriors, rogues, or monks. call of the predator and call of earth are nice group/raid utilities endgame, but they're not huge
druid is a very versatile solo leveler, but they fall off somewhat endgame due to a lack of an MR debuff, lack of good animals to charm in most zones. they get decent heals in velious due to chloroblast, but they have a hard time healing a tank as well as a cleric (best) or shaman
tl;dr shaman and enchanter are the two strongest classes in the game all around with shaman being more gear dependent
>>
>>495025
>>495083
I should elaborate on ranger DPS with the DPS hierarchy in a group/raid setting:

1) enchanter/druid/necromancer charmed pet (this one is enormously far ahead of the rest in zones with good charmable mobs, enchanter takes the cake since their charm isn't restricted to mob type)
2) wizard (while they have mana, very niche and would not recommend)
3) any tank with stacked damage shields (better on non-slowed mobs that hit a lot)
4) warrior with precision discipline active (broken discipline on p99, gives 100% hit rate for several minutes)
5) rogue
6) monk
7) magician epic pet
8) ranger
9) magician non-epic pet
10) necromancer pet
11) shadow knight
12) paladin
13) bard (not counting giving damage shields and group improvement via things like mana regen songs, haste, etc.)

priest classes could fit in there somewhere, but they are better off doing other things in a group
>>
>>495090
How's warrior dps without precision discipline active?
>>
>>495025
you could try necro though you'll probably get tired of summoning/resummoning your skeleton for the most xp
>>
>>495104
sorry forgot to add that in
below rogue, about on par with monk, but you don't have an aggro drop like those two have, so monk is inherently slightly better
>>
>>495181
It's quite crazy, I didn't know warriors were such great dps. Do they actually also outdps a mage+their pet and a necro+their pet too? That could mean that a group with a healer and the rest warriors would actually be great dps wise.
>>
>>495203
Not that anon but take the warrior dps estimates with a grain of salt. Warriors can push out dps with good weapons but most of the time you are just going to be using shitty proc weapons (gnoll hide lariat as a classic example) to generate threat because warriors have no way to generate snap aggro other than praying that taunt works.

Warrior is good once you have spent money on them. My "starting set" on my warrior has cost about 15,000 platinum. The cool thing about warrior is that you can really invest money into them heavily and they cap out very late. They also benefit from party buffs heavily.

You can swarm all the way to level 60, but you have to be very careful in your 50s because some mobs can pull you to them. imo you are better off charming once you get to your 40s because stuff starts to take forever to kill by swarming.

Extremely fast, but then all you know how to do is swarm, so when you join a party you are a shitty bard and people talk shit behind your back. Also people will hate you for swarming. because it ruins the zone for everyone else. Any time I see a bard doing that shit I put him on ignore.

>Donal's Helm on a vendor
>>497283
My enchanter who I only solo'd on got tells fairly often for groups up to 16 (when I quit it), popular wisdom from what I've read suggests Shaman, Enchanter and Tanks all do well at group finding

being able to form a solid core with yourself and 1 other person is really good for making a group too, which Ench and Shaman excel at by way of duoing well with anyone
>>
>>497288
>enchanter
interesting
i played an enchanter to 35 or 40 when green launched and didn't really like the charm playstyle
is shaman the most desirable healer?
>>
>>497289
Shaman is more desireable just for being Shaman really cause of Regeneration buffs, Stat buffs of all kinds, Canni for mana, attack speed slow(This ones real big)

Cleric is the only real healer in the long run though Druid/Shaman can replace them early on, as levels pass Cleric healing just pulls further and further away until eventually they get Complete Heal (and only they can res too which is increasingly important as you progress), not to say you have to have a Cleric to do anything but you know what I mean

Druid is unpopular in group, though it seems like 90% of a shaman to me so I dunno why really, all its missing is Slow which is admittedly a major fault but with an Enchanter for slow and to give the Druid mana it seems like they can basically do most of the same stuff

I dont think you'd have too much trouble finding a group as a Shaman though I confess to having no experience in the matter, I had same experience with Enchanter and Druid too of not enjoying Charm and it kind of killing the class for me. I was disappointed with Druid cause it seemed like a good fit for what I want out of the game but soloing without charm and without the mana to quad is just so slow, and I didn't really want to be a elf or human again either

Around 35 you are going to start having trouble finding groups as a shaman. At that point you need to start using /who and duoing with warriors/shadow knights/paladins.
>>
>>497317
Is it cause the healing falls off?
>>
>>497289
don't roll a shaman expecting to be a healer. the shm playstyle is a lot different than the clr's and they rarely heal. not at all true that shamans are the more desirable healer specifically. when a group is good enough to get by with shm spots (note: the conclusion to be drawn here isn't that shm spots are great/efficient use of the shms place, it's that a good group can do anything including necro heals) and said shm's spot mana isn't eating into his actual good shit mana, guess what, a cleric's probably already in that group enjoying the afking because they're different roles and people will usually fill out those roles even when unnecessary except when you got a minmaxed guildie group of 4 going hard in zone. there are level brackets and camps where mathematically a cleric can be the only viable pick. they're the healer. if you want to heal, pick cleric.
t. have warder loot
>>
>>497331
>Is it cause the healing falls off?
No the healing is fine. Shaman can heal any group content really. Its because people are autistic and refuse to group anywhere but a select few zones. The others want to solo with their fungi tunics.
>>
>>497332
>don't roll a shaman expecting to be a healer
The shamans that melee and cast their nukes all the time are the shamans I don't invite back.

It kind of feels like the gnomes are missing a deity, their choices for cleric don't make sense even besides Bertoxxulous, like Dwarf god and Halfling god, it's strange

DPS shamans are a joke.
Shaman is a healer, buffer, debuffer, rooter. Thats their job. If they want to DPS, use their pet while they are meditating to heal, buff, debuff or root.
>>
>>497365
you imagined reading dps in my post and you definitely don't have warder loot which i'm very sorry for but the reason you don't probably has something to do with you thinking shamans are the choice healers

would recommend chanter as you'll have the most flexibility. you can solo, duo, group. with cleric you'll have to always group and magicians won't be as attractive as chanter.

looking at the forums, the blue server has a lot more activity than the green server, and the first thread i see in the green server's forum is a bunch of people voting to merge green into blue
this suggests to me that green is dying, and if i remember right, blue is the 10-year-old server that has never been wiped
what server should one start on, if one starts today?
>>
>>497508
From what I’ve seen, green still has more players (just by volume), but it’s not many more. Last night I think I saw 800 vs 900, for example. Green will eventually merge into blue, and a new green will come out, but that’s supposed to be a year away.

There's really no need to be a social butterfly as a cleric unless you're duoing with someone who's particularly chatty and won't leave your autistic ass alone.

Once you've decided on a class open up the wiki page for it and read what it says for religion and stats. It's very straightforward and there's usually only one realistic choice. You don't really have to spend skill points like you think. You won't mess up your toon, my dear friend.

Skill points make almost no difference. CHA is ironically the most important for like Enchanter, Bard, Necro because of resists on lulls, but other than that, stats make very little difference.

>>497835
You just whack at it until your weapon, defense, offense skills go up. Its not uncommon to die a few times in level one getting these up to 5ish. Just keep trying. Eventually you will get points in those skills and be able to kill stuff. Only takes like 8 mobs to get through level 1.
>>
>>497842
It unironically is dead. 90% of green players are also on blue and half of them are on VPNs tracking and camping shit like stormfeather so there's probably really only 250 living people playing the game at this minute. They are barely living. They just wait for the discord ping and answer the batphone to collect dkp while their children are begging for food in the background of voice chat. Very sad. Still a fun game.

Cleric Vs Druid Vs Idk something else?

Someone tell me the lore I dunno which to be

My favorite class in an MMO is probably White Mage in FFXIV but I don't have consistent theming across games like someone who always plays a Wizard or Archer or whatever so I'm kind of lost on what to do

I play only at ass o clock so I kinda need to operate alone
>>
>>498156
The solo non-item dependent classes are Druid, Necromancer, Magician, Enchanter, Wizard, Bard, and Shaman.
Druid and Bard are the most fun classes imo since they have the widest variety of viable playstyles. If you truly only plan on playing solo then Druid is a no-brainer because they are the only class that has free access to every tool needed to enjoy the game to its fullest without relying on other players. Bard does too, but they can’t port. Ultimately if you are only going to play solo I recommend Druid. If you want to group I recommend Bard. Bard has the most active play style of all the classes so keep that in mind as well.
>>
P99 was some good times. Leveled a SK to 58 after Kunark released on blue then sac'd him for plat because my shaman was more fun, also got the MQ for Epic with the plat and ran through content with a rogue friend.

The shit you can do with Torpor is amazing.
>>
>>498168
I'd like to be social and join groups and stuff but the honest truth is I'm probably too sperg to actually just join up with someone for some duoing or whatever unfortunately. I like Cleric's flavor more, I like being able to heal people in a game like this, and Cleric can be Gnome which is the race I'd most like to be I think, and I enjoy just looking around a lot, I'm not tryin to get to cap real fast and I'm almost sure I'll never raid a thing, but I'd like to see inside dungeons sometimes if I can. Porting sounds nice but I'm pretty patient I don't think it'd bother me too much exactly having to walk around
>>
>>498197
Ultimately you will play and enjoy the game more if you are playing a race/class that you like rather than a recommended or min-max combination, regardless of the difficulties that come along with it. I’m playing DE cleric for example right now and yeah the game would be significantly easier if I was a dwarf but I just wanted to make a DE because I like the armor. If Gnome cleric speaks to you then that is what you should play, as long as you enjoy being a gnome cleric then all of the other stuff will work itself out. Once you get a few levels getting a group as a cleric is easy, so if you are prone to sperging just type /lfg on and wait for somebody to message you, it shouldn’t take long.
>>
>>498197
>>498203
Something I will add is that solo cleric is doable, you aren’t completely helpless. It isn’t good by any stretch, but it is at least serviceable , if that helps you.
>>
what classes kill stuff faster alone? I've been soloing ranger and it's honestly good, not much downtime, is safe, can take many targets including spellcasters and it can handle crises well, break camps, pull etc and it has varied strategy but the actual DPSing down of the target is just miserably slow, I really want something that can kill faster even if I get more downtime, I guess Wizard? Mage? I dunno really I'm open to suggestions
>>
>>498228
If you just want to dump all of your mana into stuff and kill stuff as fast as possible then yes wizard is good. The downtime is real though. Also wizard doesn’t have a way to break camps so you are gonna have to do it the old fashioned way.

If you want to solo, wizard, mage, shaman, druid, necro are your best bets.
Wizard is miserable, you kill something in like10 seconds then you sit for 20 minutes.
Idk how mage is, but I see them soloing giants, cyclops, etc.. all the time.
Shaman roots stuff, then puts their disease dots on it and they slowly melt away.
Druid rounds up 4 targets, snares, then kites them around damaging them. Wizard can do this too, but you need Jboots which you probably don't have access to.
Necro fears and dots stuff, then lets their skele go wild.

When the wiki says that it doesn't mean the quest is class restricted. It lists casters because casters would be the only ones who would want to or could use the caster research items it rewards. I don't believe the game actually has class restricted quests, though your class could reach hard to overcome faction roadblocks.

You can also try to orc highway in the east. The best place to pull them is to the edge of the water in the oasis/lake in the middle of the zone. I think the orcs are pretty good until like 18-19. Just don't pull the orc priests, they dispell, root, nuke, and heal. Also watch out of the one wandering mummy that makes a look around the shore of the oasis. He can give you rabies which stops your health regeneration.

Its awful. Nobody wants to play with you because you dont bring enough damage over time, you only bring burst, but it ends up being way less damage than someone who can swing an axe or use a pet.
98% of the time you are sitting down watching your blue bar tick up.
1% of the time you are running around
1% of the time you are actually casting a spell.

Wizard is the biggest noob trap. You will regret it. Infact their nukes are just as powerful as a Magician's nukes until level 50. You will hate everquest if you play a magician.

People dont really start partying until 10-15. Most everything is soloable by most classes until that point unless you are warrior or rogue, but people who are playing those classes have already leveled another character and feed them gear, which makes them incredibly strong soloers until like 23.

what the fuck is so unique about bats that they have hitboxes that force me to target one when it's literally 20 meters behind me and not even on my screen and i'm clicking on something right in front of me

Should I play on Blue or Green

I got char on blue i like around 30 and dont really want to reroll but i dont wanna feel like im in the retirement home on blue if it is that way

i guess i mostly solo so it doesnt really matter but still
>>
>>501589
Idk what the server dynamic is like on blue cuz I only play green but both servers tend to have about the same population most of the time. If you already have a character you like on blue and you don’t really want to reroll, it seems like you already have your answer.
>>
>>501589
green characters will get rolled into blue eventually anyway. it's hard to say but i feel like most new people are gonna be on green, rolling new characters, because it tends to have more people on it and it's billed as the progression server. i don't really play on blue anymore because of this so i don't know what the scene is like there but i have okay luck finding groups on green.
>>
>>501589
Blue is 90% people multiboxing/camping while they play their main character on green.
>>
>tfw listening to a boomer feed their baby on discord.
>>
>>501589
well if you're only gonna solo and chill by yourself the world will be more open on blue and the wait to get into certain cash camps etc will be shorter, and good gear is a lot cheaper (and theres quality of life stuff like custom UIs and tab cycling)
>>
>>501186
thanks. a more general question:
the wiki is full of guides, but they mostly gloss over 1-10 and to a lesser extent, 10-20.
how do you powergame the early levels?
i've gotten stuck in the early game too many times in EQ. someone buffed my HP in the kaladim newbie zone earlier, and i started thinking about powergaming. i was able to reliably pull and tank six or seven goblin whelps and decaying dwarf skeletons, and kill krag chicks slowly, but realized that what i really needed was a similarly huge DPS buff (went from ~100 to ~600 HP)
i looked at those weapons on the wiki and the dps didn't seem like a huge improvement from a rusty warhammer - do i need to go to east commonlands and look for a specific set of buffs?

What would you play on a fresh Green anon

I'd go for a Halfling Warrior maybe for the xp bonus and cause it's what I played back in the day, I haven't remade it on P1999 before now, it'd be rough without any gear though it might be kinda fun to camp your own polished tomahawk or whatever

So I googled and for Shadow Knight everybody says Shaman is the way to go, I can see why cause it buffs SK well, supports it with exactly what it needs etc but I don't wanna be one really, what else would work? I'd kinda like to do Dungeons in the duo if possible cause I've never been in any of them really
>>
>>502510
it's good, for both breaking camps and getting into them (you're more likely to get that seb group if you can lull your way down like a champ). regarding dwarf, well, a lot more str does mean you could carry a pretty affordable/noob acquirable full CHA swap set that would put you at or near buffless soft cap. 30min 25cha pots only cost like 12pp in mats if you have an alch buddy. i like being dwarf more than i like the convenience of more innate cha but yeah it is a legitimate consideration, dwarves aren't for minmaxing only looksmaxxing.

Like all of Velious (got owned by snow griffon today), any dungeon, dungeons in particular feel completely insane, i go in with my necro friend and we duo a little and it's just too scary to go anywhere away from the door cause an add or any kind of small error just means I die and he just feign deaths, its to the point where i dont wanna go anywhere it's just too dangerous and it doesn't pay off at all but it kinda sucks i dont wanna just kill lions til level 40 either

he's even able to go into some of these zones completely alone without any trouble
>>
Alright pick my FOREVERMAIN, these are what I'm considering

Halfling Warrior, recreation of my main character from Live, I picked halfling back then cause I was like "woah they can be warrior" and not for any meta consideration but the xp bonus is probably how/why this became my "main" (I hit level 30 at the end of 4 years before quitting a bit after GoD) but it's actually kinda cool, decent stats, hide and sneak, xp bonus etc

High Elf Wizard, recreation of my favorite Pathfinder character I ever played, Wizard is kinda wack but quad kiting sounds fun maybe, I am pretty good at alt tab afking too so maybe Wizard wouldn't be too bad? I don't wanna group at all really so that's not a huge consideration and ports sound cool

Human Paladin, recreation of the very first thing I made on EQ when i got it in 2000, I thought Paladin sounded perfect but after struggling mightily to hit 9 I got spells and felt extremely let down but I see the way now I don't think it'd be that bad

also vaguely considering Barb Shaman or Wood Elf Druid, 2 things I already have, cause SoW is awesome and all but not super enthusiastic about either one really


and also human warrior I dunno why but it sounds kind of attractive, like playing a literal mob in the unkind world, experiencing brads vision with 0 compromises or something it's not a good idea though
>>
>>502603
i don't know your class, or what dungeons. i would think your necro friend could at least come close to soloing the mobs you're talking about. you do not have sneakhide or invis to get by? do you have mez, charm? how about cleanly positioned lulls with your friend at the ready? not sure whats up w/o knowing class
outdoors, well, the only concerns are typically the uncommon mobs (relatively speaking) like snow griffins who are sow speed and can root you. anything else you should be able to run away from. this just means know if theres potential for a dangerous superspeed pather in your area and periodically check your six accordingly, tabbing and facecam-ing etc
>>

>>
>>502653
Having the stuff or not the main thing is if you don't have FD and anything goes wrong at all it's just like an instant wipe I guess is my main problem, like yeah sure Shaman or whatever can take it if everything goes right but things never go right in this game, especially in dungeons with mobs running all over
>>
>>502648
All these options are terrible. Look, all these class posts are the same thing, here's how it is:

If you wanna group, play literally any class except Wizard. If you wanna solo, pick Druid, Enchanter, Magician, Necromancer, Shaman, or Bard. Only duos are actually kind of complicated to rate but even then most duos are reasonable and can work even if they aren't optimal, like Warrior/SK(can fear kite) or Paladin+Rogue or whatever else, only no damage classes stack badly, like Cleric+Wizard or Cleric+Cleric. Or you can just pick Shaman and duo with literally anybody.
>>
>>502565
I've done 1-60 duos with shadowknights with the following setups and had no trouble.

sk/monk
sk/enchanter
sk/rogue
sk/shaman

They're all good so just pick one. If you absolutely cannot play a shaman then try enchanter.
>>
>>502648
Wizard = fucking awful dont play it, you are not a special snowflake who can be a "good wizard". They suck and people will not invite you to groups.

Halfling Warrior: Not bad I guess. Their dexterity is high which is very important for warrior gettings procs to hold aggro. People wont like you if you aren't twinked though.

Human Paladin: This is kind of a dumb combination. I understand if you don't want to go dwarf, but if you are going the meme route human is kind of boring.

Barb Shaman: Its alright I guess? Troll shaman is the superior pick(its like night and day difference) until 60 and Torpor(which is 100,000p spell), then Ogre is better, but its only better by like 1% and only if you are raiding with Seal Team.
>>
>>502565
As long as you are fighting in open space, you can duo SK with just about anything because it can just fear everything constantly. Obviously a healer like cleric, druid, shaman would make the experience safer and more productive. The reason shaman is the "best" is because of the attribute buffs and haste that it can give.
>>
>>502693
I dont want groups though
>>
P1999 is straight dogshit, any camp worth doing is permafarmed by max level characters who are too pathetic to do level-appropriate content. Even more surprising is that everybody defends this asinine behaviour. It's no wonder Seal Team is so despised. Can't even do 1 camp without some Seal Team faggot showing up to try and either steal it or lawyerquest his way in to it.

You could cope about your low base charisma by doing some insane no-LOS crit fail pulls, can be extremely powerful.
>>502666
If you're not warrior then you and your necro friend are playing too timidly or inattentively. There is a distinction between unwinnable and iniescapable. Your character is probably more powerful than you realize. Post class, zone, camp, and levels.
>>
>>502738
Which camp did you get fucked out of?
>>
>>502510
Cleric race is pretty interesting basically every option brings something valueable to the table, it really depends on what you want to do at the end of the day

I never really Lull and I solo and get beat up in melee a lot, Dwarf would've been really good for me for example, High Elf makes better pure caster cleric, Human and Erudite get cool gear depending on faction/religion, Dark Elf gets hide+necklace, Halfling gets Sneak and good non cha stats

can't go wrong really, but Cha for Lull is definitely very effective, I'd probably not go it over Wis on creation though
>>
>>503179
i'm not a minmax faggot and i have no delusions of raiding or anything so for me it's just a super important issue because with cleric you're looking at your party utility at the end of the day. how important is that line of spells when enchanters exist? forget the solo potential or niche situations like "oh this party in a dungeon doesn't have a healer and i can run to them without an escort" - that's kind of my thing. WIS is mana pool, that's your bread and butter, but WIS gear is supposedly very cheap and easy to come by.

the issue for me is dwarves have abysmal charisma to begin with so it just seems like i'd be better off dumping into that stat and relying on my STR to get me through in terms of gear and making sure i'm okay in other stats. to me that seems to be the tradeoff the devs intended with dwarf clerics having great strength and dogshit charisma.
>>
>>503185
You should never be at full mana anyway. If you are your group isn't pulling enough or you are afk. Wisdom only matters for a single pull, aka how much mana I have to dump if things go bad. 6 man parties are also horrible if you want to level up faster than like 5 months to 60. If you want to really fly through levels you are going to want to duo or trio.
>>
>>503185
>to me that seems to be the tradeoff the devs intended with dwarf clerics having great strength and dogshit charisma.
Check the math, but I think dumping all your points into strength with a high elf results in higher total STR, STAM, CHA than dumping all your points into CHA on a dwarf.
>>
>>503190
yeah but then i'd have to play a high elf instead of a dwarf
>>
>>503193
Dwarf is the meta pick. If you want to be a dwarf be a dwarf. Its not bad and the extra strength is a huge quality of life bonus.
>>
>>503211
>Dwarf is the meta pick
seems like Helf is which is my issue. i'm not concerned with the longterm meta, raiding etc. it's just a cleric is only as good as the utility you provide to your party outside of niche stuff like soloing undead stuff.

this is just a metaphorical exercise because i'm only rolling this hypothetical character in Green 2.0 because i wanted to play a dorf and a dorf cleric seems cool, i just wanted to make sure i wasn't fucking over the people i would party with when i made him. and i know roughly you can make anything work, but dwarf stat spread is just kind of unique as far as cleric race choices go.
>>
>>503219
>seems like Helf is which is my issue
Helf is so weak it can't wear raid gear. Which is why dwarf is more meta.
>>
>>503185
see >>502594 regarding dwarf cha. you have options. lull isn't niche but no one will care if you never mem it. on wis, i mean practically speaking in groups the only difference it makes is your group's pull pace and the difference between races will be minor enough no one will notice; in a lot of groups it literally won't matter at all, only the ones leaning on heals. after ch it was common for me to nuke just to dump excess except for the less common groups where i had to do heavy lifting. solos and duos it's more convenient but for cleric i would first and foremost look at the racial advantages and who i like to look at the most. my first cleric was dwarf for cuteness but my second wasn't because i really wanted to snare.

I want a class that can kill stuff faster, I'm tired of these battles of attrition, debating Wizard though people say its really awful. Maybe Druid? I don't want to do Mage Ench or Necro, my friend plays those
>>
>>504068
What do you currently play? Do you solo, duo, group? Do you want caster or melee?
>>
>>504087
Mostly solo, wanna duo some with my friend but I've been too low or we haven't really lined up yet, we're both kinda uncertain at the moment still, right now he's doing the mage and I kinda feel like it's his favorite of the three

I've been playing Ranger and Cleric so far, I just got scare animal with ranger so i can level pretty easily with that now but it seems kinda miserable in some ways and I can only fight animals which is kind of disappointing, if i dont scare animals though I have to cast light healing like 4000 times and even with a telescope its so slow, Cleric is neat thematically to me but no movement/utility is pretty rough and instead of casting light healing a ton I end up very slowly autoing stuff and healing cause it seems to work out more efficiently than nuking, though I guess nothings stopping me from doing it (I'm only 18)

I doubt i'd ever play in a big group, I never have and im not too interested, my hours are bad for it too, I have zero interest in raiding as well, if I ever somehow hit 60 i'd probably just retire rather then do much of anything else, im not a player who will ever seen an epic i dont think

My plat is pretty bad, if I liquidated assets I'd probably have like 2500 which isn't too bad I guess, I could see myself farming a Jboots but anything much more expensive then that is kind of hard to imagine
As far as caster vs melee I guess I don't really care one way or another, I've played+enjoyed both, if it wasn't so miserable for what I'm trying to do I'd be tempted to Warrior, its what I played on live but I know all about how bad a choice it is for someone who plays like me

I've been thinking about this for way too long too and have probably leveled too many characters to like 10-15 which doesn't help either, I do wanna play though if I can just pick something to focus on
>>
>>504094
Try a monk. They're cheap to twink, feign death gives you a huge safety net plus makes single pulling super easy for soloing, and you'll do a lot more damage than your ranger does.
>>
>>504096
>>504094
Seconding this. Also, look up Flatts's Classic EQ Adventures on youtube. Shit's very damn comfy and you can observe the monk class progression as well as what they/you can do and how to do it right. If you can get a hold on Fungi Tunic you're pretty much set up to level 30-35. You will be tanky as fuck.

Conditional sentences is what children learn even before school, anon.
Of course, everyone can storm through low levels with twink gear. But the monk class has enough reliable "oh shit" buttons by itself. I was just saying that a single chest twink item would be enough to raise it even into a higher tier. By no means I implied that monk works only with access to fungi.

I'm gonna try this and in most games when I first try I do a Human Fighter or whatever unless some class really grabs me thematically cause I kind of like filing the traditional "hero" sort of role of tank with a sword+shield, but based on what I've read about this game if I do a Human Warrior with a shield I'm gonna be basically unplayable. Considering that, what would you recommend as a good "Default" kind of character for EQ?

shaman and druids get access to just about every interesting mechanic in the game between the two of them. healing, buffing, charming, unique utility. they can be attractive in groups but can solo.

Could do Paladin, good group tank, can solo better than Warrior

>sword+shield
Warriors dont really use shields. Paladins use shields more often.

Ranger is pretty good, i think it's probably the best all around casual melee since you get such great QOL stuff, Invis, SoW, Levitate, Root+Harmony, Tracking, enough healing to mitigate downtime, ranged damage, Sneak, It just feels like the most toolsy of all the melee to me even if your DPS and AC/HP are lower overall

This board is slow enough that this thread will still be alive for another week. There's no need to immediately make a new one.
