After seeing the videos coming out of SOE Live for EQN, I downloaded EQ2... I've been playing WoW off and on since BETA. Before that, I played EQ a lot. I don't remember why I wasn't interested in EQ2.
I should have been.
EQ2 is awesome. It's not perfect, but I love, love, love it. I've played solo quite a bit and the questing story lines are great. The veteran players have been VERY helpful too. I finally got my wife a new graphics card and she joined me yesterday. I'm going to let my WoW account go inactive for probably the last time. It isn't that WoW isn't fun, but getting into EQ2, I remembered how awesome the 3D graphical MUD-like play style is. It just feels deeper and more expansive.
I'm on the Freeport server, my persona is Olberdin. If you sign up and create a persona on Freeport, I'll be glad to answer any questions you might have while I'm in-game.
I don't know if this link will work, but sign up with it and we both get some extra stuff. Or don't. https://♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥/recruit/smlanding.action?iId=O8ROZC2QEQ7VUQXJ7HLA&gamecode=EQ2
