    Tarinax hardly looks ALIVE so it will a miracle to see this Terror of Bonework moving and snarling and breathing! It looks like a Player won't be LIVE for long if they tangle with Tarinax either!! But perhaps the big bonepile has some fatal flaws that can be employed to bring him down? .. at least to our level of existence? On May 11th, one day before my hubby's birthday (yes his birth month that we celebrate all year in our entire family began today .. he wants a hovercraft as his main present this year; he's getting 3 pair Harley blue jeans LOL) the Terrors of Tarinax begin .. who among us shall survive this encounter???

    PvP seasonal server called Tarinax?

    Luckily, Tarinax is a permanent free-trade TL PvP server, not seasonal. It's Factional (Q vs FP) with Exiles.

    What does Free-Trade mean pls?

    It means a lot of items (especially dungeon drops) are not bound to anyone when they drop, and can be freely traded or sold on the broker after they're picked up. Quest items are still no-trade when you get them, though.

    Oh! And equally importantly, whenever you're killed in PvP, you drop an unbound item from your bags plus 50%-70% of your carried coin, so with Free Trade, even Fabled and higher quality gear can drop.

    you won't have bags and bags of heirloom items .
    And Tarinax is a permanent PvP server first caped at DoF , level 60 .
    They use the model of a TLE server as in bad public transportation and a carpet in Freeport and Qeynos .
    No level baubles to instant end game .

    It's initially capped at KoS Level 70, and I think they mentioned it may lock for good at RoK somewhere down the line.

    thanks Siren I was a little mixed up .
    But the model was also changed around somewhat to suit peoples needs .

    Is it confirmed with capping at Rise of Kunark? Does it mean it will be included, or EoF will be the last one?

    I am asking because I have played on pvp servers for 6 years. RoK was the expansion where outdoor PVP started gradually dying. I think it was mostly due to zone design - too much overland, too many zerg-spawn points. I would cap it at EoF (included) - this was the last expansion when PvP was excellent.

    You know, I'm double checking on that now on Discord, although Dreamweaver isn't on so nobody may know for certain. We get more info Tuesday, so I'd keep an eye on Announcements then. But it doesn't look like EoF will be the last one. We're opening with vanilla+DoF+KoS already open. EoF is the first post-launch expansion that comes right after KoS.

    I found two tentative Discord posts from Kander from a little ways back that are both mentioning the same idea:



    will be starting at Vanilla+DoF+Kos with Eof and RoK as later releases.

    and

    we open with Vanilla + DoF+ KoS and then open Eof and Kunark one at a time in a few months.

    Wow PVP sounds rather .. intensive? I guess peeps don't carry much coin around then when they're fighting? I'd shite myself losing 50%-70% of coin I'm carrying. Nothing like getting a person steaming mad for more fighting!!

    Thanks Siren. I would advise to consider stopping at EoF - or maybe opening a poll for all server members at some point in EoF.

    BTW is there a final ruleset published for Tarinax? Including things like existance of pvp armor, tokens, titles, crowd control adjustments etc?
  17. Siren Well-Known Member


    Yep, it's always been that way that I can recall. Original Nagafen server went in back in February 2006, and to this day even on PvE servers, I only keep a few silver on any character no matter what. ;) All the rest is always, always, always in the shared bank.

    You get to know where all the "safe" banks are and where the most remotely-located, least-often-visited banks are really fast, too. And how long the zoning immunity timers run for. There's also the infamous "gank at the bank" scene that plays out quite a bit on new players, too.

    Nah, there's not a concrete list of details yet. We learn more on Tuesday. But Kander already said a hard no to PvP gear: way too many players exploited the tokens. There was no PvP gear on beta over the last month, either. Kander called PvP gear "the end of PvP in EQ2" so all the exploiting clearly killed it for good.

    That final patch feels pretty good; there are just a few OP dumbfires (Warden Pack and Brigand Thugs) that need major tuning down and we'll be close. It doesn't seem like avoidance has been fixed yet, but maybe after Tarinax launches we'll get one more patch?

    Titles are definitely in right now, so I expect they'll be there just the same for launch.
