Daybreak, how about experimenting with nerfing PoK books?

    I have never understood the PoK book hate. I love em. Played a druid in classic and I spent the overwhelming majority of my time anon so I wouldn't get harrassed for ports. If I did a LFG shout I knew I was going to get one or two, "Hey, since you obviously aren't busy can you port me somewhere?" tells. When I wasn't on my druid I hated having to hunt someone down to teleport me somewhere, usually I would just run there myself, as I prefer to be self sufficient. Running somewhere for 45 minutes to an hour hugging zone walls and counting how many zone lines I passed until I got to the one I needed wasn't fun or exciting or dangerous or challenging. Spending half of my gaming session hitting numlock and watching tv, oooo fun!

    I imagine a PoK book nerf vote would go much the same way a corpse run vote went.

    I'm not sure how this thread even came to be. Previous Incarnations of the TLP servers disabled the Plane of Knowledge as an accessible zone. The exception being at some point during Fippy's early game, it was possible to access the Plane of Knowledge / Guild Lobby and bind. The TLP as it's name states is a Time Locked Progression server. We ....wait for it.....progress through the expansions in order. This is not a classic server. It will never be a classic server. The moment Planes of Power is unlocked we (the playerbase) will most likely have access to the PoK via standard means.

    Preeeeeetty sure he means nerfing the books when PoK is released. It is a given they won't be functional until then.

    Yes you absolutely did. In 1999 you absolutely passed out - they removed that early on.

    PoK books were not available on 2.0 until PoP opened. This is a non-issue, as they are already "pre-nerfed".

    Interesting I checked a bit and you seem to be right, guess I never noticed as back then I was a cleric and always had my supply of summoned burnt bread :)

    He's talking having PoP without the PoK books.

    Daybreak can you please make it so when people log in, enter a zone, complete a quest, and reach a new level they get a fresh KEI and Haste please because I hate buffing people.

    Thanks!

    DBG, I want a "classic" original Everquest experience, just like back in the old days.....except....I don't want to waste valuable time traveling so can we get ports and world-COTH....oh and no meddding....and all full faction......and pointers to quest points and npcs......and spells upon dinging.......and no corpse runs and no XP loss.......and instant spawn mobs,.......and, well can I just log in and click the DING button to win? That would make for a very enjoyable sense of accomplishment.

    they should make it so portal haters can only make druids or wizards with disabled anon and roleplay, have a permanent title "I port for coppers!" over their head and as soon as they log in shout "anyone need a port?!" in every chat channel every 15 minutes they are logged in.

    How on earth is having PoK books when PoP goes live related to any of those thing.

    I like this idea. Having a book in the Nexus and then perhaps 1 or 2 per continent would be cool. It was kinda lame when PoP launched just because it got so easy to run places, but at the same time not having to find a druid or wizzy was kinda nice.

    If they did this I'd like to see these books active:
    Nexus
    Great Divide
    Freeport
    Butcherblock
    Erudin
    Cabilis

    And obviously PoT. That would be pretty neat. Would allow ppl to run places if they really needed to, but would also keep the game from feeling like it got smaller.

    Probably not going to happen, because they will just launch the expansions as-is, but I always kinda thought they should have done that in the first place. I think it will be more important for the devs to focus their limited time on stuff like making sure tradeskill recipes and out of era quests are properly adjusted.

    And make them summonable from any zone in the game whenever someone needs a port.

    /summon <ihatepokbooks>

    This pretty much sums up 90% of this forum.

    Put the book and only portal to Luclin at the NK spires.
