Tried to play with Fairie class. Tiny timny with psychodelic coloured wing. No good at all. She was AoE mage, but once again - little use. Deleted.
Then, Necromancer came to life. Chose random name, thinking she won't last long. I was wrong.
Necro is just my class. So far (lvl.11) has one tiny tiny skeleton. Little guy has some actions and does all combat for me. My Necro, in turn, has many Damage over Time spells just to support mian fighter, i.e. skeleton. Even one heal to make little guy last longer.
I can cast some diseases, also - ranged attacks. My guy is melee only and sometimes does not want to attack target. Sometimes he just swims (!).
Found out I missed one quest in evil guys starting area: I should have talked with NPC about gathering and receive quest. This would lead to a chain of quests and some cool rewards.
Fighting was easy: just go, tab-target, unleash skeleton, cast some spells, watch monster dying.
I was expecting more like Age of Conan type - me, controlling an army of undead. But little guy would be nice too.
The only nuissance are severe f2p restrictions. Cannot use chats, cannot mail anything, cannot use auction house...and cannot fill questionnaire for entering Guild. This makes EQ2 just an online single player game with zero social interaction. I guess developers should leave at least some socializing action for free players.
But overall - things are nice (so far) in EQ2.
