Just started playing with the family and have a couple questions. Some background: we just started playing as a family (4 accounts). I've had this account for many years(8 years or so of rewards I saw in claim) so have a slew of veteran things I could claim but so far leaving all 4 accounts freebie to keep xp consistent. I've only claimed a bag I think. I will eventually all-access 1 or 2 accounts. We are basically just questing and crafting and wandering around. I basically don't want to sub 4 accounts but don't mind doing it on 1 or 2 accounts. Main reason for playing eq2 is to avoid paying for 4 accounts in another game 2 of us have been playing. Questions: 1. Bags: Are there easy options for increased bag size not via crafting available for free accounts? Quests or such? 2. Mercs: I think I have one veteran claim for a tank type merc but how do I see if my account is flagged for mercs? I don't see the shop option to just buy the ability to use them. Just the option to buy them. I'm guessing we will need 2 damage types as we have tank/healer/2 mages. Any suggestions or point to a guide would be nice. We will likely explore some of the dungeons as we wonder on our xp journey so figured filling out the party with a couple mercs may be useful. Free options or purchased ones work. Thanks for any info and happy adventuring!
