    Hello there everyone!

    Started playing EQ2 maybe, two days ago now and already loving it (HOUSING!!! I LOVE HOUSING IN GAMES!! :D )

    Gotta say though, I am finding myself stuck in a loop, make a character, do some low level quests.. go get the starter house in New Halas... end up deleting the character and repeat the cycle.
    I'm currently a Level 10 Paladin Barbarian... but knowing my tendencies that's subject to change
    :confused:
    . I've tried Monk, uh... Well... that may be it? I can't really recall... I just picked one of the more tanky classes' because I tend to just run into situations and get attacked from all angles and just... flail at everything - basically I have no common sense!!

    I suppose one of my issues at least now with this character is the New Halas start quest things... I have done all the ones that the folks give you at the small camp before they move to the Great Shelf (is that what its called?) and no longer have any quests in my journal... I'm not used to not having a goal or direction to go in so... I went to new Halas and got my home :)rolleyes: ) and am now pondering what the elk to do!! I don't like not having something to work towards, I don't do well just being shoved in and stold - right, here's all the freedom you like, just do whatever, no one needs anything from you or anything.

    I have played MMO's before, mainly FFXIV and ESO, though never really have reached any end-game content... heck, not even MID-game content in any before...Hoping I can change that, key work 'hoping'...

    I enjoy RP as well as getting to know a few friendly people to talk to about the game and to ask for help with things, people who I can befriend!

    Anyway, apologies for the ramble! Hope to see you all around,
    Raynn :D

    Go to Qeynos, find the agnostics portal at level 10. Pick Stygian threshold if you have the expansion and kill kobolds straight from the zone in. If you don't have the expansion, pick Crypt of Agony and kill everything. Then go back out of the zone and re-enter to reset the zone.

    well, first off,..
    As resident Burynai, may I welcome you to the ever changing world of Norrath,...
    which is surrounded by MANY continents, dungeons beneath the ground,.. lands floating (somewhere?) in the air above,...
    oh yeah, did I mention the nearby and distant inter-planar dimensions?

    nearby to the docks, you should find a sparlky sphere "world bell" which would allow you to take a "boat" to the other continents.

    Also, look for HUGE quad, inward leaning spires, as they can also lead to other dimensions.

    the druid rings (literal tiny Stonehenge-type ring) also allow for distant travel,...

    explore,.. kick your feet,.. as you never know where you will find yourself :D

    Might I ask what the point of doing this is? Is this simply for levelling purposes?



    World bell I know of... those big pillar things I may have accidentally stumbled into once or twice which was a bit of a shock.
    Seems theres a lot to explore!

    The purpose of it is to level up and have a great place to get gear until level 95.
    It's easier than always trying to find quests your levels and deleting your charaters. Crypt of Agony will earn you status as well as providing your gear every 10 levels. Sell extras for cash.
    Stygian gives 900 exp per kill before bonuses. It's a very quick way to get to mid level if you have the expansion

    There are more quests if you progress further into the zone...you must assist those who have journeyed to the Great Shelf...west of the little camp (Gwenevyn's Cove). The have lots of stuff they need help with!:)

    *lookin at the map, it really is kinda south west

    On the paladin? How many mobs did you try to take?
    The mobs scale to your level. I am not sure why you died

    well... attempt 2 - aggro'ed one, ended up with a second then eventually a third joined in... this time I managed to kill all three - the issue is I keep running out of power and it regens very slowly so am very limited in what attacks I can use! Also I think I'm just really bad so... that's also a factor as to why I died.

    Now waiting for power to come back to try and pick some more off...

    For others that read this thread. So we found out that exp was nerfed again in crypt of Agony but not Stygian. And we went to wailing caves and it was also exp lower than outside in Antonica. Anyway I have to research now which zones are good experience for no expansion again.

    Welcome to Norrath!!

    When you take the raft from the New Player area across the water, do not go up the ramp and do not go towards the rocks that are bouncing around, the other way there are some tents with a ton of quests. That is where you are supposed to go from the New Player area.
