Post Suggestion to Encourage Levelling Across Norrath

Hi all,

As a long time (old time) EQ fan and I jumped back on P99 after a break. It was brilliant picking a new class/race and levelling and exploring old world via a new perspective.

Something as I’ve noticed in the run up to 50 is how the ZEM of Paw, Cazic Thule and Hole makes you choose these zones for XP or anywhere else for fun/variety.
The good behaviour this ZEM created critical mass in the zone. What isn’t as fun is you are stuck in hole for 50-60.

Could we implement a rotating ZEM in new zones every few weeks or months? This could help encourage exploration and variety but keep critical mass in some zones.

Is this a horrible idea?
If not, what zones should be considered?

Comments welcomed!

Hugs and Kisses,

Jibb

It just makes too much sense to have changing ZEM's

Be great to make the entire karanas a crazy kill boosted area to get people out there.

And so many other places.

Why is anybody in a hurry playing a game called EVERquest.. No ZEMS needed.. All zones the same.. Grind on you bums.

Then people just pick whichever zone is most efficient and go clog up there. That doesn't resolve the root issue at all.

I'll agree to this as long as they don't publish it in patch updates

You just realize, "hey, Unrest is kind of shitty" and then move somewhere else

Word will spread, but then you just change them in a few weeks. Random dice roll. Indoor dungeons only

This has been suggested many times, but the devs don't seem to be very interested in the idea. Perhaps it's too much work, or too unclassic, or all of the above - nobody but them really knows. Point is, as good an idea as I and many others believe it is, I wouldn't hold my breath OP.
