If you're all access and thinking of restarting in EQ, but are not sure where, then can I suggest the Phinegel server as there are some definite advantages to live. 1. Pick zones are enabled, so you can swap picks if the one you are in is overcrowded. 2. Raids are instanced with AOC's, so no more racing other guilds. As a result there's a healthy number of guilds raiding current content without any drama. 3. Mercs are now live on the server making catching up levels easy. 4. Top level is currently only 85, so you can catch up in no time.... especially with aa autogrant. 5. Cultural armor is readily available, which makes it easy to gear up to a reasonable standard. 6. The server is on Seeds of Destruction with new content every 8 to 12 weeks meaning you can enjoy a constant flow of new challenges and it allows you to play content you may have missed in the past. 7. This is a mature TLP server. The Krono farmers have gone away to the new TLP servers 8. This is a true box server, so you need one machine per character. Yes there are a few box groups going around, but they don't dominate the server, and I've yet to see a box army. 9. This is a truly global server. There are raiding guilds in all timezones. 10. The economy is not shot to hell (like the FV server), so prices are reasonable and affordable. Not sure yet... Come try it out. Most guilds are more than happy to invite new starts, as it doesn't take that long to catch up and If you don't want to raid then most are also are happy to have you as a social member.
