    I love EQ been playing for 17 plus years, it is very different today.

    Here are a few of my peeves from looking over the whole of the years!
    I hate that I spent a full week awake all night to kill the sand giant and get my J-Boots for them to ever become worthless!

    Why can things that take effort not keep increasing to hold their value, like J-boots could be faster than the bottled stuff!

    Same for the nice chopper I gained by death a million times killing the Mechanical Guardian and days of work gathering parts! No other should be like it and it should never lose value!

    Epics...same story!

    When someone says range, when they mean RNG (random number generator).

    When someone types rouge, when they mean rogue.

    When someone asks for help doing a quest/task/mission, then promptly needs a 30+ minute afk right as soon as the quest/task/mission has started.

    People or groups of people who are able to defeat content, but instead of improving themselves and rising to the occasion, make excuses about gear, levels, numbers, composition or whatever and miss out on a growth opportunity.

    When people thumb their noses at the game rules and use third-party programs to gain an unfair advantage even when the rules of the game prohibit it (lack of suspension/ban/enforcement is not equal to acceptance of said behavior . . . rules are rules).

    People talking in Discord.. mute them all!

    When my gate fails... the absolute worst.

    Top 10 lists. In EQ, people who bail from groups with no warning.

    I've heard 3-4 different pronunciations of Mearatas. Do we have official confirmation on how you're supposed to say it?
