believe Beldan's point is that with so many unclassic features of this pure classic feature set, why not increase players enjoyment with warders to raid / loot

I've never seen a thought-out, legitimate reason why they shouldn't revive the Sleeper. The most sensible reason I've heard was the programming work it might take, though I don't understand what goes into that to agree or disagree.

Support for keeping the Sleeper gone was always going to wane over time.

Right after it woke no one (well, almost no one) wanted it to respawn. Doing that would have reduced the "epic-ness" of the event. But as time passed and the people involved left the server.
... and even the people who just heard about it left ... naturally fewer and fewer people cared about "the epic-ness".

If you did a poll today I don't know what the results would be, but I know the idea would have more support. And if you did a poll in say ten years, when almost no one will even remember the original waking, I can all but guarantee support would be at 90+%.

Of course, Rogean and Nilbog do what they want, but it's not like they were strongly committed to a one-time Sleeper. During Velious beta they actually did a poll asking what the player base thought should happen. It seems to me they're open to the community's opinion, and likely sometime before ten years from now the tide will shift enough that they return the Sleeper.

So, if you look at a timeline you've got the original waking a few years ago, and you have ten years from now when Sleeper will very likely be back. And what's in between those two points, after Green? Custom content.

I think it would be cool if a quest line was put in and not announced and if somehow someone happens to discover / solve it, the sleeper would be revived.

Shroud of Longevity Rotted on TAKP on Tuesday night. I shed a tear for all my old P99 friends.

Christ, don't feel sorry for us. On P99 get the best EQ ever had to offer before Luclin crapped on the game. Though I will admit PoP was great fun!

I would be down for the sleeper to come back. I believe a reset every few years would keep server fresh.

Green for full TP but for keeping things interesting that would be cool.

The big difference between P99 and actual live servers is that Velious didn't last for 4 years with no end in sight on live servers. Having some of the most valuable raid targets on the box be perma-dead is kind of dumb.

You can try to kill the sleeper every 3 years before your characters are transferred to blue from green, purple, x99, y99, etc99 etc etc on and on for eternity [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

Who wants to be the brave one to explain why the sleeper was awakened on this server in the first place? Maybe Dannyl? He was in that guild after all. Did it feel like the right thing to do? You denied your enemies (Aftermath) pixels, right? Was that all it was about?

Make all the original warders/mobs pop with original loot table and drop percentages, on earthquakes and ONLY on earthquakes. Don't reset the sleeper itself and its awakening script.
