Won't be too upset if they can't get spellbook medding working. Such a silly concept.

High pop at launch, then when people realize how hard it is, it'll drop way off.

"Snare doesn't stack with root?!"
"I can't solo on my Pally?!"
"Trueshot Bow requires how much Fletching?!"

Oh man, it's going to be so much fun! It'll be kinda hard for bards to swarm with 50 people in every single zone.

What I worked out was the spellbook pops up on screen, with a meditate and stand button beneath it. Chat boxes and health/mana bards remain on screen but everything else fades to blackness.

Just not made for widescreen with no standard UI.

I thought it was a good RP concept and was well done. Listening to the sounds around me while I couldn't see anything, totally focused on my spellbook. Putting my 3d positional audio card to good use. Finally being relieved when I had mastered it enough to not need it and could see.

Hm. I wonder...

There's a few quests for turning Plat->XP at okish ratios. Rogues can pickpocket safely off anything that's aggroed enough. It takes bards significant time to burn down giant piles of mobs. Pickpocketing other people's mobs confirmed classic and not a bannable offense, and the social stigma against doing it will basically vaporize if you're doing it to a bard.

Wheels turning...

My prediction is the pop will be low for a while, if not the whole time, because all the blue players are like "I already invested all this hard work" and like GeldorEQ says, "snare, root?" etc...

But then when the servers are merged, and all those idiots see everyone with guises and manastones, they are going to feel like such idiots for not going to green lolz

Will non-fleeing mobs take full damage from DoT's? Can't remember if that was a thing. Would be nice to kite without fear.

It may have been mentioned, but won't the server likely be capped at say 2k or whatever? Can the servers here handle 3k? 4k?

I think there's a fair number of abandoned/rarely used accounts on blue, and those players may very well make their way back for this new reboot. I would not be surprised in the least to see the dial hit 3k if allowed.

Then again nasty lag in certain zones or even server wide was also classic in the early days so...

Really, starting your entire character over, years of playing with fully decked out Velious gear is worth a dark elf illusion? You can't even use manastones outside of classic zones, they are mostly worthless besides a few rare occasions a wizard or druid is doing something near their bind point or port in. I would assume in all of those situations it would be more efficient to accomplish those PvE goals by being an enchanter or shaman.

I'm sure 3 years from now when there is a merge and some dude is spamming a manastone in EC tunnel with nothing to do people are going to be kicking themselves.

Considering I doubt you've even played everquest in 4 years, id say yeah its totally worth it.

You can buy a manastone, but you cant buy DE illusion.

If 20 mana is the difference between an item costing 5k and 50k then I sure do think that DE illusion is priceless.
