Can we please start in our race's respective areas? Or at least have THE CHOICE to do so? When Sony gave us Glooming Deep and Crescent Reach, all choice went out the window in character creation. It's not a hard thing to do. It was done for years before these additions. I played (and paid) for EverQuest from 2001-2004. I have fond memories of the game from that time. I never enjoyed Glooming Deep or Crescent Reach. I just installed EQ again and wanted a taste pf nostalgia, visiting the old haunts. Unfortunately, the Barbarian Shaman I created had to start in Crescent Reach, run through to Hallow Moors, run through the Plane of Knowledge, and attempt to make it to Halas before Gnoll Pups ganged up on me. I'm setting my respawn point BEFORE ever getting into a fight, because the repeated run from Crescent Reach to where I actually want to be is ridiculous. Also, guess what happens when you "gift" us that nice "origin button?" Crescent reach is where we go. No way to change that. I know this has been asked for many, many times before (by me and others) and nothing ever changes, even when Sony was running the show. It's NOT difficult to do. Sony changed it from a choice to it's present state, just change it back. For the record, I am NOT a paying customer. With beginnings like this, why would I? If I actually got to experience the EQ I had such fun with ages ago, that included many choices, I might even pay to play, getting those extra character slots for my alt-oholic tendencies. But NOT if every character is MADE to accept Crescent Reach as their home. Just a point. Money talks and hopefully knowing that you're losing money with this may (I say MAY) spur you to make a change.
