Boosted and need help

    So I used one of my heroic boosts.
    86 Necro atm.
    I feel sooooo weak.
    Should I go back a few expacs and gear up with proper gear.
    There has to be a way that I can improve my survivability.

    Heroic characters actually starts out with pretty decent gear. the best gear you can gain from going back to earlier expansion are:

    SoD-achievements: http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/item.html?item=114322
    UF(a hard expansion, beware!): http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/item.html?item=89798

    As you can see it is not a big jump from the heroic starter gear: http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/item.html?item=116224


    There are things you can do:
    Complete the mercenary quest(should already be in you questlog, and its an easy quest), it should upgrade your mercenary, make that quest a priority!
    Complete quests in feerrott and other early house of thule zones, to get some some augs for your gear(aug-quest rewards is a special heroic feature!). HoT quests should give you enough faction to get rk2 spells from the spell-drops.

    However SoD is probably easier than HoT, and you might stumble over some augs there as well(and get more practice in playing with your new necro along the way), just don't expect any big upgrades.

    Another thing is to go through your AAs and find all your AAs that you can activate. Familiarize yourself with those ones. They'll help with survivability.

    Also go through your boosted gear and get your clicky buffs as well. Seems small, but those buffs add up.

    Snares and Feign Death. As a Necro, these will be your friend.

    Ty all, this gives me hope that one day I'll be able to survive having agro'd a second mob. I wish it was obvious when mobs are meant for group kills and solo.

    As a Necro, you have FD, which means if things are going south, you can just play dead. It is all about learning your class. Go through all of your spells very carefully, and make sure you understand all the lines you have and what they do. The gear you have is darn good for your level, but you COULD look for Rustic in bazaar - that is tier 1 group gear from Alaris, about 30-40% boost over heroic starter stuff. But you might need to purchase and then sell a krono. Kronos on Xegony go for 2.5-3 million, and that should be enough to keep you decently geared and with all spells all the way to the top, as long as you keep it savvy, and look for bargains.
    Most any mob that is dark blue to you, you as a necro should be able to molo (solo with merc).
