What is your controversial EQ hot take?

    I think EQ should take quite a few pages from like: improvement on auto follow, loading up more than one account at a time, having a reactive box crew (with ANTI afk exploits).

    Not raiding and not being interested in the "end game" but playing "causally" in the rest of the content is a valid game play style.

    Wizards and Mages shouldn’t be separate classes. Delete Wizzies. Merge Clerics and Paladins, again they’re just the same class. Delete Zerkers and merge back into Warriors, and give them berserker stance.

    Do something more creative with the open class spots.

    There should be an evolving augment based off of your achievement score. Every 10 achievement points = 1 h/m/e, every 100 points = 1 AC, figure out a ratio for mod 2 and heroics and such. Reward those who are truly experiencing all the content that the game has to offer and challenge you on.

    Once a year all servers become PvP for a day. Attach some sort of requirement to participate like you get suspended for a week if you dont.

    If they did it between Christmas and New Years I’d be okay with it. :)

    1. Give no drop items an heirloom tag. I already earned the gear once, why should I have to do it again? I could even settle with letting the heirloom tag go in after the gear is one year old so that alts are running around in cutting edge gear. This would also make rolling alts a lot funner to do.

    2. Make all zones that are not in the current expansion accessible. It's hard finding groups for progression, especially years after an expansion has already been out. Don't make it any harder than it has to be for new players to catch up.

    3. Make an updated casino. Inflation is bad in EQ and there just aren't that many plat sinks out there. Plat sinks that are mandatory to stay current on progression are bad because they hurt plat poor people. However, the super rich of EQ might actually move some of their savings if there were cool ultra rare stuff to be had in an updated casino.

    I think the design where it is most efficient to mash one key that does all your abilities/skills/spells as fast as they possibly can be mashed is bad for the game. They should remove the ability to keybind everything to one key, and if that means there are too many abilities then reduce the number of abilities.

    All items on Firionia Vie and Mischief should be tradable.

    Agreed 100%. No idea why they made some things non tradeable. Let EVERYTHING be tradeable. That's why people play on that server.

    Hot Take- The developers are in maintenance mode and won't ever really add in anything meaningful to the game or take any real risks. Expansions are pretty much copy and paste with more spells that do more healing, more damage, more AA's.
  14. Nennius Curmudgeon

    Better yet, make all items on FV and Mischief NON-tradeable for one day a year.

    Everquest should run on a cloud server.

    Without client-side access to data, botting or hacking will be nigh impossible.

    You can't fake passion and enthusiam. If a developer is not actively playing the game they are working on, then they should not be part of the dev team and find other opportunities.

    I’ve seen restaurants hire new people and then close within a month.

    You're in the guild I founded, and I just saw that posting - thanks.

    The game only needs a few minor tweaks to make it great.

    A set of intermediate to expert tutorial NPC's all lined up in a row to teach you about everything from leveling to questing to epics to aa's to zones to hot ticket items. Players who want to reach max level will have a healthy linear path to follow because the NPC's will give you the best options. "I want to start my epic" will give you the full quest line in your quest window. You'll know exactly where to start and end.

    A set of legendary quests, which will take you to every single zone in the game.

    Add positive resist modifiers to the Magician's magic spell line. Add a negative resist modifier to every wizard spell. Increase druid's healing abilities. Give clerics a projectile undead only nuke spell line along with good aoe undead spells. Nerf all resurrection spells and clickies to be 75% max unless it is a cleric, paladin, or necromancer spell. Let Sight Graft (Necro Spell) be able to hail and start quests from their pet. Nerf a mount's ability to regain mana at sitting levels. Make Poison should have fun combines early on in the tradeskill.
