    Hello all,
    It would really be cool to nerf guards killing by increasing either their HP or lowering respawn rate and reducing their loot significantely, like it was done years ago for Freeport Guards and some other cities.
    At this moment, killing guards like in Misty Thicket look a real abuse... they drop insane platinum, fast respawn rate, and are perma camped leaving newbies without guards protection.
    Im sure it has not been intended this way. Please, dont let some people looking for easy money ruin newbie zone and the game to some extend.

    Here is a solution .. Pull what you can kill. Guard killing has been happening since day 1 of EQ. If the guards aren't there zone, its that simple.

    The guards in the true newbie yards are buffed, do not give any exp or drop anything (they are flagged as merchants) .. all guards away from the newbie areas or in cities (for the most part) are fair game.

    the guards in the true newbie area in misty are buffed up like other gate guards.

    the guards at the wall are pure luxury as thats a 5 to 10 leveling area, and are also killed for quests and loot. dat +5 cha ring.

    6 Plat spears also aren't "insane platinum" .

    I miss killing guards, but this time I went with a good character as something I never played.

    Unfortunately DBG broke this by disallowing players to cast buffs on guards or give them weps to dual wield. I wanted to give a Felwithe guard some 1 handers and 40% haste to screw with some dark elves farming them, but I couldn't. Really lame of DBG.

    How dare they remove the ability for you to grief people who are playing the game within the rules! The nerve!

    Haha grief? Somebody's a little sensitive. I'm defending my city's guards by helping them out. Am I griefing monsters every time I heal a player in distress?

    People definitely don't charm NPCs, give them pet gear, cast buffs (see invis is fun) on them, then gate. That definitely does not happen. =D

    Killing guards IS EQ. I had a SK that was ally to the North Freeport Paladins. I might just head to the toll booth and drop those fools for sport.

    I miss the days when evils would come and kill my banker.

    Some of my best memories stem from this....

    (give them a cracked staff for added lols)...

    Newbie runs up to hit a decaying skeleton and dies instantly from the DS.

    I've always killed guards with DE Necro, but I made a Erudite this time.. Do I need that faction at all? Killing guards is awesome xp
  20. Drexll Augur

    Idk bout your faction as an Erudite, but I always rolled as a DE necro too, and guard killing is just standard necro play. Someone said that the 2 toll booth guards in commons no longer give XP, and that's a real bummer, as that was a perfect camp in the low to mid 30's.
