Teek and Anniversary Tower - a Lose/Lose?

    Majority of people play tlp for a few months, and return next year. Not everyone, but most. That's why they care. A year doesn't matter because next tlp will be out then.
  2. CdeezNotes Augur

    That's a player self inflicted issue and easily fixable. Don't cry about it if you're the one choosing to inhibit yourself.
  3. Rothj Augur

    The problem is people want to force players to like later expansions or force them to play eq all year. Most don't care about that. They want to play tlp because it's a fresh experience in classic eq. Again obviously not everyone.

    And a random loot server with free trade, increased drop rates and instanced raids via AoC isn't close to being a classic eq experience.

    Nobody is forcing you into anything. Just like nobody is forcing you into Tower gear. The problem is you are creating the issue for yourself and then complaining about said issue. Whose fault is it? Yours.

    And the irony of stating others are forcing people to like things when this entire thread is people crying about how Tower is going against the way you want to force people to play and the gear you want them to wear.

    Finally, Teek is the absolute antithesis of a classic experience. It's the TLP ruleset most far removed from classic minus Vaniki. It crumbles one of the primary game loops of EQ (progress to higher tiers to get better loot). The fact you can raid lowest tier raids and have a chance at the highest tier loot makes Teek barely an EQ experience let alone a classic one.

    Inb4 41% haste belt drops next week. "FoCuS eFfeCts ArE sTiLl ChAsE iTeMs"

    Just go to 100% haste and let them defend it, why not.
  8. Baldur Augur

    I don't see where they've weighed in at all on this in regards to TLPs. Silence does not equal support.

    Maybe they are still making up their minds on exactly what they are going to do? It would be nice if they said something though.

    WAAAAAH! 5 of my current inventory slots out of 21 have items that aren't from raids!!!!!

    Imagine choosing to play on a loot pinata server and then complaining about having good loot available.

    This is a 1 time event to celebrate a quarter of a century of EQ that has good items available for only a few months. If you weirdly have some kind of issue with it, every tlp before teek and every tlp after teek won't have it during kunark-luclin. Get over it.

    40+ Haste items already exist in Kunark. 36% existed in classic. Is 4-5% really gonna make or break you? Cry more.

    Given the anemic regen and attack, and the awful shield AC augs from the tower at 55 and 65, id be shocked if we got 16% haste on the 55 belt.
  12. fransisco Augur

    I bet if there was no krono on a tlp, most of the people who quit after 9 months wouldn't show up
  13. Zapsos Augur

    Besides Ranger and Rogue epics what 40%+ haste items exist in Kunark? I can only think of the Shoes from VP, which is literally one item from the final raid zone.

    Just don't do the quests/missions and then you won't have to worry about the uber gear aimed at casuals.

    Oh hai new items. Two new earrings with the only focus effects that works pre luclin. *Tower gear doesn't have focus effects" Kay.

    I don't understand the decisions being made. Dbg activity giving people no reason to play their biggest tlp.

    Yet there's still queues to log in each night. I think people have a plenty of reasons to play. Socking it isn't everyone's endgame.
  17. Fizon Augur

    Servers not even a month old. Where's it gonna be at the end of velious or luclin after everyone got their 3 armor slots that arnt covered by tower gear
  18. CdeezNotes Augur

    You play on a server that gives out double to quadruple loot each encounter. No matter how you desperately try to spin it, with or without tower, even the most casual players are going to be geared to the gills in no time at all. Tower is absolutely not going to change that fact so the answer to your question of where they would be remains constant.
  19. Fizon Augur

    That's complete nonsense you realize you are going to have 17 pieces of tower gear by the end of luclin. There is ZERO reason to raid in luclin

    And double and quadruple loot is a massive over exaggeration.

    I'll break it down cause I'm starting to think you might be a bit.. uh.. special. Killing a raid targets on teek is like pulling a lever on a slot machine it's fun. Entering the tower on my lvl 2 mage and clicking pet attack isn't.

    I'm not saying gear on teek isn't easy to get. I'm saying there's no point to play the damn game
  20. Arclyte Augur

    I want tower gear for primary / secondary slots with dd/lifetap procs and innate 40% haste

    let's light this candle
