Hey folks! Long-retired player here seeking server selection advice. I know this gets asked a lot but I've been agonizing over this decision so please forgive me for starting another thread! I played EQ at launch in 1999 and quit sometime in 2003 during LDoN. My highest char was a 53 Necro and many others in 10-30ish range. I've experienced most content in Classic up to the 30s, a fair amount of Kunark in 30-50, and just a touch of Velious and PoP after that. Some criteria to inform server selection: Primary motivation for returning: that sweet nostalgia hit. Relive some old memories while also experiencing some new things I never got a chance to properly enjoy (like LGuk!). Playstyle: super casual; mostly 1-1.5hr play sessions, <=10hrs/week. Want to duo with 1 box. Happy to load up EQ on a second laptop to Truebox. I've never boxed, always been curious, and think it'd be more fun to control 2 chars at once. I may be open to occasional grouping, but mostly plan on running a powerhouse duo like Druid/Chanter so I can experience the most content in a self-sufficient manner due to erratic play times and short play durations. ~75% certain I won't do any raiding. TLP seems best. Level cap was 65 when I quit. Anything above that seems alien and thus not nostalgic. Serpent's Spine?? Yuck. Kelethin or Qeynos, please Mercs? Strange concept, slightly curious, but boxing seems more fun. QoL improvements are desired and although P99 would be the ultimate nostalgic experience, I don't have the same expendable time I did at launch. Although I will be mostly soloing, a large part of the EQ experience is to be immersed in a world of other players. Even if not playing with others, it's important I at least encounter some rather than being in a ghost world devoid of any activity and life. From reading other posts, promising candidates include: Agnarr: LDoN-locked so comforting to know that there is no content past that which existed when I quit. Some reluctance in case some day I decide I want post-LDoN content... small chance I think. Aradune: Seems to be have healthy pop + long-standing playerbase? Maybe I'm wrong? Some concern that I won't run into anyone in 1-60s range from Classic/Kunark/Velious. Rizlona: More boxing flexibility / less boxing hate. Same concern about not running into anyone in early EQ content zones. Mischief: Higher pop than Thornblade. Loot system seems like a fun new element without breaking nostalgic immersion. I probably forget what mobs drop what anyhow Concerned that I'm joining the party too late and that I'll invest the time to level up characters only to exist in an eventual dead/dying server once next TLP launches in 6-8 months. Do you think what I've ascertained above is correct? Have I weened the options down to the appropriate candidates? I'd be pleased to hear any feedback and suggestions to pick one of the above or any server!
