Yes, I have a question. When did you turn into a nutbar?

It's been a couple of years since I loaded up EQ2 (2006-2010)

Hows the population of the game since the release of their latest expansion and what are the popular servers to reroll on?

Apparently I been dropping hours into PS2 and to change up from the twitch action of PS2 when I need to, I thought I jump back into this game just to see whats going on.

The only con for me going back into this game is, do I really need the last 2 expansions to enjoy the game? I do have a monthly SOE pass, but to drop $80+ dollars to enjoy EQ2 I won't at this point.

Chains of Eternity includes DOV -- you dont need either of these until you are level 90+

 

Age of Discovery is a "feature" not content expansion

- with AOD, you get access to Beastlord class and mercenaries

mercenaries are very helpful but you will do fine without them

Population now is probably slightly higher than 2010.  EQ2 is one of the few games not in a decline.  AB and Freeport are the two biggest, but a few others (Crushbone) arent that far behind.  Low levels are slow across all servers (as is true in any 8 year old game) but AB is your best bet for rerolls Id say, its also a very popular server for 'progression guilds' (go through expansion content in order) if you are into that sort of thing.

Antonia's the way to go as many have said :)

 

it's very friendly as well, all things considered.

 

When i originally played i had characters on the other defunct rp server (lucan) but when i rerolled from scratch i joined AB as lucan is no more.  it's a gem of a server.
