I recently downloaded Everquest 2 to try it out. Coming from 6 years of WoW and experience in a ton of other MMO's like SWTOR (50 Gunslinger), AoC, Aion, Shadowbane, Everquest 1, The Realm..... The list goes on...
 
I must say, Everquest 2 is the best MMO on the market right now. They changed it so much since launch. It's easier to get into but still has that epic feel Everquest usually brings. There is a huge world to explore, epic crafting, mercenaries you can hire to help you out, group AND solo dungeons, collections, quests..... There is so much to do in this game... Player housing with a ton of decorations. There is actually a tradeskill made for house decorations (carpentry) 
 
25 Classes
20+ races
Good, evil, and neutral alignment system...
PvP
Tons and tons of customization for your characters advancement
Flying mounts, jumper mounts, floater mounts, ground mounts...
Epic graphics
Collections
Exploring
 
Give this an honest shot... You wont be disappointed... There is a lot here to discover
 
 
 


 

Saying that this is the best on the market right now? nah, this is an amazing mmo, but that's all EverQuest II is.


No..he's right - EQ2 has the most to offer in an MMO and if that's how you define an MMO by being the best - than it is.

New MMO's are so lacking that many players are checking out the older games again and EQ2 is pretty populated for an older game.

You can even say that the dismal release of SWTOR and lackluster expansion from Wow have forced players to look to games like EQ2 that have more game play options besides grinding for gear and raiding ad nauseum.

Not really a fan of the art style either, so mundane and brown and grey and........well just dirty. Theres no artistic touch to it and it just seems like a generic fantasy art style.

Combat is well.....typical mmo combat, not sure if you can be the best if your combat is just like everyone else.

 

There seems to be a lot of exploring to do, the continent seems huge, which is nice, but I like the 'discover hidden area' exploring as oppose to 'just keep walking' exploring.

25 classes, 20+races, good/evil alignment are all only avaliable as subscription, so I wasn't able to take a full look at them, but some of the races shown on their site are just.......downright terrible looking....borderline retarded -.- Also I want to ask what is the point of good/evil alignment, do you get different story? or just aggro in different areas?

 

Also not a fan of the coin cap, there are enough items on the item shop that honestly doesn't require this money grabber.

 

And PvP? For a game you called the best, there seems to have no support for PvP at all? It is hardly the best when it rejects 25% of the player population.

Its a good PvE MMO, not the best either, but it is good.


Translation: My computer sucks so I had the settings turned all the way down so the graphics look like crap and I'm to cheap to pay for a sub so I can't use all the features.

Also - there are so many hidden places to explore it's not even funny...I just accidently fell down a hole and ended up in an underground cavern filled with Heroic baddies...the world is full of these places.

Most games support the 25% at the expense of the other 75%.  I have yet to see an MMO that tries to cater to PvP that hasnt negatively affected PvE with its PvP changes.

I agree about EQ2 being one of the better MMO's nowadays. Especially if you look at the amount of content and offered features.

But I also agree about the client being very badly optimised. Performance needed for whatever the game can offer in the graphics department is relatively large for a game this old. It is very noticable when you enter a house that has loads of decoration with silly turned on effects. I suspect that the client is based on outdated technology that is still very CPU dependant.

It is.  SoE was designing the game with future PCs in mind, but the technology shifted

There were two schools of thought. One was that CPUs were going to keep increasing in speed. That's the one that EQ2 was designed around but it didn't work out that way. They couldn't get CPUs to go any faster so they shifted to multi-core processors. So the engine for EQ2 was designed to take advantage of the faster CPUs they thought were going to be developed.

I love EQ2. There were many times where I was amazed by the looks of the new areas I discovered. I thought the character models were ok, and the combat was ok and has become the industry standard.

The downside is that I reached a point in progession where I felt like I hit a wall. It's like there was a point where there were so many things to do where people were so spread out. Also, even on the AB server it seemed like people were anti-social, and there were no 'hang out' places. Everyone was always in a hurry to get to their next quest. It just didn't feel like a very social game. But then again, I came from SWG (CU at the time) and that was a very social experience.

Maybe I'd have more fun if I could find an active guild that was active during the overnight hours (10pm-8am PST). Even in the few guilds I spent time in it felt everyone was doing their own thing.

 

Most of the social hot spots are in player made Taverns and such.

Here is a link to an EQ2 social activites site. http://www.raven-mythic.com/phpbb3/index.php

We just rteturned to EQ2 after almost 2 years away and it is still a great game, there are more to do than you ever will have time to. Lots of classes and areas and zones, yes it is badly optimised and some people hate the graphics, but you can play cheap on free to play if you plan a bit (lots of ideas on the official forums) and the community on AB has become better with the influx of new players, be prepared that "leet" oldtimers might hate you. But EQ2 is definetly the best bang for the buck at the moment.

Played AC & WoW in the past and enjoyed both. Only level 8 so far but it seems like a game I will enjoy. I'm on the free to play because I want to be sure my computer will run it once I reach more populous areas, though I might get the $5.00 option so I can use chat channels.

Only complaint I have so far is it the game throws way to much information out to quickly to really absorb it all in. And in the middle of it all some important info is either missed or not put out.

 

What server are you on. My wife and I have played since release (tried other games, but always had a sub going) and can help answer questions you may have.

I'm on the Guk server.

Just hit 14 last night. Would have liked to have had more playing time during the double XP weekend but other projects took priority. So far it seems my Warlock is pretty fun to play and just a tad OP.

edit: Just wanted to add almost everyone has been very friendly and I've had multiple players ask me to group with them.
