The Shaman Epic is far from unattainable. There are a lot of guilds that are able to and do kill the Golems. Be it by race or sock. None that I've seen are too obsessive with it.

Don't let anyone tell you that a PoFear clear for Armor, Minis, and waiting for Golems is any worse than Bard kiting a half zone worth of mobs around while rushing for FTE/kill for the sake of the "race".

Truth be told, any of the capable guilds can or will help you get a Sham epic. Whether it's for a guild member or it's for sale. There is one out there for you. TBH, I don't remember the last time I was in PoFear watching Golem efforts where anyone asked anyone else to team up, share, or rotate. It's always snipe it asap or piggy back to get it for your guild/s. A solution doesn't create itself.

Did you miss Sirfloppins threads in EC where he was selling loot rights to literally everything that dropped in PoH? And lots of good no drop items are up there, necro book and falchion to name a few.
Seen sirfloppin on at all lately? Have you seen his thread in EC lately? I'd love to see a log of when the last time AM has killed a mob in hate. I was actually thinking of starting to put together a team to farm it since we have several mages that need epics.

Finally posting to say that this is dead wrong.

I was super casual back in the day, I obviously couldn't log on much early as there was only dial-up and I couldn't afford the insane prices to stay connected to the internet.

Even when I finally got ADSL connection and was able to play more than an hour or two here and there, I still was casual, and was only in the 5th or 6th best guild on the server. But I still had no problems getting epics for my alts, even the Shaman.

The "hardcore" players back then was nowhere near as rabid as on here, and you would often find raid mobs just standing about, and there was even healthy guild diplomacy, without having to be enforced by GM's.

A lot of my friends were all in the top 1-2 guilds on the server, and they all had jobs and healthy lives, they didn't live in the game like some people do now.

This is on the EU server of course, I couldn't attest to how it was on US servers.

Another thing to note is that multiquesting was never big business back in the day, the same way it is here.

Certainly you'd have guildies and friends helping eachother with MQ's, but selling them were nowhere near as widespread, many players didn't even know about MQ'ing.

I have to agree with Westcreek because I played live from 1999-2001 and I knew players who got to their epic level. They wouldn't even be in a guild but from word of mouth, they would be able to get different guilds and higher level players to help them because it was helping another player out and helping them get their epic. It wasn't about the whole "what's in it for us" or "how much you going to pay" thinking it is now with P99.

This has nothing to do with epics or MQing directly though. It is a function of how folks actually play the game differently on p99 than they did on live. For a great variety of reasons, the core interaction of players is different here than it was on live.

So, even though what you're saying is true I don't see what it has to do with the gripe the OP brought up in the first place. It has to do with everything that happens here.

Well I believe his gripe is that if you want to get your epic on P99 then you either have to join a raiding guild for a chance to obtain the pieces even if you don't like the guild or the players in the guild.

Or you camp an area over and over to make at least 40-60K to buy certain pieces to get your epic.

It is. There's no valid complaint. Epics aren't meant to be easy; they're meant to be the supreme weapons of the era. Through oversight on behalf of SoE, some of them just happen to be easier to complete than others. But it really gets funny when people with easy epics start complaining. Tears about tears? Try being a warrior or bard.

I played from 1999-2001, which I would consider to be classic EQ and I don't recall a single time during those three years that someone had to spend 60K to buy a tear.
