So I'm an old geezer. I played eq1 at launch.. Meridian59 before that.. I wrote one of the first online mmo in 1979 at the university of Minnesota. Anyway. So I've played on and off for a long time. The last time I played 'seriously' was about 3.5 year ago.. I was the MT raid healer for over a year. It eventually dominated my personal life, so to preserve my marriage I had to stop raiding. So I decided to just fart around and chrono down with a merc and do old content.. and some of that was fun.. but every time I did that, I wasn't doing daily missions.. summer ethereals.. all this 'planes of magic stuff' where I had to religiously read scrolls.. the more fun I let myself have, the more I fell behind. So I left the game. I came back 2 months ago to Kaladim, as I figured I could experience the old content without the temptation of missing all that god level stuff. And.. to some extent.. it's worked out. But I've discovered it's just NOT possible for me to do any heroic content with 1 or 2 characters and no mercs. So I've not been able to do any heroics, which has drastically reduced my fun. yes.. yes... yes.. I've tried for a month to find a guild that fits my play style.. no go.. I need a larger guild (don't seem to be any of those on Kaladim), where the focus isn't just on raiding, which I don't want to do.. but with lots of people who like to do heroics, and at all hours of the day or night, randomly, not scheduled, as that's when I can play. No go. So I have 4 level 70 characters, and I'm bored now, don't even want to re-experience Kunark. Somehow, when I first came back, I thought mercs would be enabled.. and when I discovered they weren't (and may never be?) I was crushed. Also, I had always wanted a little 'personal guild', for all my army of alts (I have 19). So I did that.. I'm the not-so-proud owner of a level 41 guild.. with myself as the only member... Iv'e recruited a fair bit.. but nobody wants to join anything except a raid guild, which I understand. It was also STAGGERINGLY disappointing that I couldn't get a guildhouse and guild perks. I could have at least worked on those. No go. I've got a nice Premium house with crafting stations, depots galore, etc.. but even I don't use them.. it feels too lonely. I just craft at the crafters union. So out of boredom, I bought the Luclin expansion.. to play with overseers. That has been VERY frustrating.. it only drops junk nobody would ever want... I bought like 4 personal depots to hold the junk, but I don't think I'll ever want any of it. On Overseers, I heard about free charged missions.. so I spent 4 hours looking for the administrator Stanley. He's listed in eq2maps etc.. but he doesn't exist on Kaladim. That was frustrating.. nobody ever mentioned that anywhere online.. there is so little info on Kaladim online. So... i still had these level 100 characters/monsters of 10 hotbars of stuff I no longer remember or understand.. I thought I'd see how overseer worked on one of those.. and went to see if stanley existed on live servers.. and of course he did. So.. to get charged missions for kaladim, I had to go to live on another server to find Stanley. When I did some overseer missions on Skyfire, I got level 115 fabled mastercraft stuff.. infusers.. even got a level 120 fabled and two mercs! Geeze... a bit better than the rubbish gather loot on Kaladim. So I'm in a conundrum. I don't want to play luclin on Live servers.. I don't feel like experiencing the sense of panic that I"m falling behind on summer ethereals/scrolls/ all that bloated god-level nonsense. I'm burned on playing on Kaladim.. what I wanted to do is not possible there. Any suggestions?
