Mx5 is back ... Sort of...
Ok when I left ( http://boards.station.sony.com/ubb/everquest/Forum4/HTML/037399.html
) and folks either flamed me, said goodbye nicely or some even
said I would be back....
Well they were right of course, sort of...
I have reactivated some of my EQ accounts. I plan to
currently play only a 3 man hydra (chanter, druid, bard) and
not the 5 man group of before. So Mx5 is no more, I am more of
an Mx3 now.
After I left EQ back in February I found allot more time to
do other things. Yea!
I worked it out so I now play on the computer a third of my
previous time and make room for more real life activities.
With my more manageable time frame of computer play I tried
a number of other games. The single player games like Never Winter
Nights and Sim City were fun but I found the lack of
player interaction made them sterile.
I tried a few other MOGs, AC2 and EQOA and they were OK. I
started missing the utility spells and the depth of EQ PC
(believe it or not I even missed Corpse Runs!)
Anyway I got rid of 2 computers since my Mx5 days and now
have set my bard to be the light tank of my hydra. This way I
can group with just about anyone as I run across them, true
tanks, clerics, rogues, int casters etc. With 3 slots open I
can either solo my hydra or fill it out with friends.
One of the things I dislike in EQ PC is the downtime after a
fight. Downtime is always related to manna. I know you can buy
KEI in the bazaar etc, but I do not like having to take time
to search for it. I also do not like to have to search for a
group. After all that is why I play a hydra. Anyway with my
chanters clarity doing 6 manna/tick and the bards clarity (at
32) doing 5/tick I will get 11/tick which compares very
favorable with KEI at 14/tick.
Right now I am enjoying power leveling my bard up with my other two
chars. I got him from level 12 to 24 over the weekend (used up
most of my playtime). I love playing support chars and like
stopping and helping other players as I can. This part of EQ
has always been fun to me. That is why all my main chars have
been hybrids or support chars. The only two things I will miss
with my new mini-hydra is Rez and Corpse Summon. Oh well can't
have everything lol.
I am hoping I will have little downtime and will be able to
get in and play for shorter periods. I still have no intention
of doing guild raids or doing quests where you have to camp
for a mob. The other aspects of EQ PC though are fun and I
enjoy my druids ability to move my hydra around the world
quickly via ports and sow.
Anyway for those who said I would be back or that EQ PC was
the most fun of all the MOGs I have to say I agree and you
I will not be playing as much but in my limited time I will
still enjoy the adventures of Norrath.
I also will be back posting here on the boards and asking
questions and also helping where I can.
I know I will get some nasty flames on this thread but I
had to be honest and tell the truth. Please don't roast me too
I am trying to come up with a catchy last name for my Kitty
Bard Maew (Meow?). Right now my best one is Myx. I am open to
other suggestions though.
