I started a Half-Elf Ranger on Erollisi Marr in September of 1999, played him through PoP. Been playing a Beastlord ever since, lvl 85, wound up on Bristlebane after the server merges and a server xfer. Still have an active account.

I remember playing on my Brother in Laws account on the nights he had to work. He started playing pre kunark and played until well after Luclin. I don't think I started playing on my own account until kunark and played through velious and had to quit. I felt I had to play because I was paying so much for it out of money I really didn't have at the time. I don't remember any of my toons, but I do remember that they were all halflings, dwarves, and gnomes and mostly clerical. I wanted to be the cleric that would run through a zone buffing lower level characters and healing those in need. I had so much fun. I wanted to play forever.
My friend plays live today and I don't think I could ever get into the graphics on there lol. my short stubby halflings are no longer short and stubby...

I started at the beginning. My first character was a half-elf Ranger named Gowyn (got him to 16 before I switched to a Druid). I believe it was on the Tunare server. I can distinctly remember grouping with another guy and us going into Western Karanas for the first time. We saw our first giant spider and were wigging out. I still find it hilarious to this day that it surprised me as much as it did. We were both like "Did you see that? That thing is huge!!" LOL such n00bs..

I'm really eager to try P99!

Started on Jan 2, 2000. I re-rolled with some friends from the EQ forum when Luclin was released (late Feb or early March, IIRC). I was 14 or 15 when Kunark was released- I know I was at least 14, because I bound in the fire pot room, then the next day re-bound after a friend got into a Faydedar death-loop. I kicked myself for a long time for changing that; the risk of death loop was far out-weighed by the advantages to being able to get to vitually any city within minutes- even for a druid.

I want to hear from the people whose first time is P99, mainly:

How well do you enjoy the game?
What is your level/class/race/guild?
Are you casual or hardcore players?
What is your previous "MMO" experience?
Do you recognize what role skill plays in performing your class's proper duties in solo/group/raid situations?

I've yet to set up the game, but, ghods.... I loved Everquest from the moment I took it out of the box... and loved each expansion. Kunark was my favorite, Velious was brilliant fun, Luclin was great... and as each one progressed I began to worry.

I had to stop around Gates of Discord.

Even so, I don't know how many times I thought back fondly to Orc Highway... or, heck, even to the Orc Camps in the Eastern Commonlands... or taking the boats to get to where you'd prefer to level.

Heck, this is like a dream come true. [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]
