Anyone kno if u can redeem from latest expansion on manglar server mounts exp options etc??
They are completely viable. Just because they aren't as powerful as other choices doesn't mean they cant be played, geared, and be useful. They will make for a new experience in a nostalgic setting while recreating a normal leveling environment for Berserkers that has not existed since their original release 15 years back.
These will create enough variation in progression servers to keep them feeling fresh which will benefit their population and longevity, while being similar enough to still be considered classic EQ progression. As opposed to just recreating the exact same thing progression players have been doing over and over again for the last few years.
Just because YOU wouldn't want to play one, doesn't mean other people shouldn't have the option. Get out of here with your nonsense or raise a legitimate argument against the idea.
If they tie Stonebrunt unlock to Kunark then Berserkers would be able to complete their 1.0 with everyone else in Kunark. That would definitely give them a DPS boost and would make them a viable DPS class. According to a dev post Stonebrunt currently unlocks 1 month after Velious unlocks.
They are not going to change what classes come out for certain expansions...this concept is dumber than PVP TLP talk.
The only thing I have read which is possibly dumber than PvP TLP talk is the idea for a TLP where you can do all content as a raid, or do not need to do any flagging or XP'ing & can just show up to raids already levelled & keyed/flagged.
The idea for making more classes/races open at the start of a TLP server unlock is nowhere near as dumb as those, nor is it anywhere near as dumb as PvP TLP - at least in my opinion.
I'm pretty sure that it it dumber than PvP. Sure the PvP advocates have demonstrated that there really aren't a huge number of them and that they deliberately behave in an offensive manner that doesn't help their cause but PvP is a thing and we know that there are areas in the live game where it's in effect and that you can turn it on with /duel.
The fact is that we don't know if it's even feasible to create a server that starts in Classic with all classes available. We don't even know if all classes/all races is really possible either and if it were would the devs strip away things like ogre frontal melee stun immunity, iksar AC and troll and iksar regen.
Those of us running emulators like this must know magic then...
The e m u a to r was coded differently and more recently than the actual game. You understand this right?
You're 100% right....instead of coming up with stupid ideas, we should be begging for TLP release dates.
We not begging for dates, we begging for open server NOW
Why offer stupid ideas, like all classes, or all races.. Why not? maybe cats will start in Oggok? Why you not offer something like it?
Producer's Letter - April 2020
Great news! We heard your request for a server starting with all classes, and we are granting you just that! Introducing Rizlona, a no-truebox server starting in Gates of Discord!
Yeah no way there would ever be all classes on classic. GoD would have to be it.
"There's no way to re-create Classic Everquest, the code was lost years ago."
Well first thing to do all classes, you have to at least start with a Classic-Luclin unlock launch. With that, the only issue is with zerker 1.0. There is 2 options, one just acknowledge that zerkers can't get their 1.0 until GoD. Secondly, tweak the zerker 1.0 item with reduced stats to begin with, then full stats when GoD unlocks.
As for Disciplines/abilities, pre-PoP, these are tied to specific vendors, so by allowing those specific vendors in early solves that. The only work would be for the 61-65 and decide which ones would be available with PoP versus GoD, which is already kinda done.
Zerker 1.0 doesn't need reduced stats. It is maybe an extra 20-30 hp over other epics. Haste is on par with others and maybe 10 or so extra worn attack. Ability stats are pretty much where they need to be. The only piece that needs to be changed is the Stonebrunt Mountains for the Gnashing Paw and that can be changed by opening Stonebrunt before PoP.
So you think a 37/46 2hander for the zerker is comparble to other epics? the warrior epic in 2hander version is a 41/36. That's a big difference in dps.
And if you do a luclin start, stonebrunt is a non issue. And also then requires the minimal amount of changes.
Berserker epic is basically just one expansion worth of dps over the rest of the epics. Except monk which is 2 expansions. It is a little strong but comparable to Velious loot.
You’ve got your ratios mixed up there, friend.
