If you play in first person exclusively chances are you are real bad at eq. That dude in your group or raid who doesn’t realize something is going down for a few seconds.
As a Cleric I'm always a few seconds behind anyway. Purple Club FTW!

Same with the twirling. I don't know if P99 updates position the same way but when quadding on my wiz on live I developed that habit to stop interrupts, and to this day I am always spinning while casting.
I just automatically resumed doing this when I started on P99 despite a solid decade of not touching EQ. Just a tiny turn to the left or right before I start casting, and then turning back the way I want to be facing as the cast counts down.

I am the worst EQ player. I am still wearing the same Crafted Breastplate and greaves that I quested nine years ago on here. So of course I play in first person.

Sadly third person. Situational awareness is so much more accessible this way. I played first person back in 1999 and I think that is actually how we all fell in love with the game. First person was able to fully ABSORB us into this world. Third person is sadly just so much more efficient at allowing us to respond to changes in a fight or environment.

I was playing tonight and I realized I spend much of my time, especially in outdoor zones looking for creatures with the camera that is like above your head? Idk what you call that camera, parascope cam?

I use that thing like virtually anytime I'm looking for something in an outdoor zone.

edit: ok yeah, this feels natural, Im doing it right now. It feels like basically my race is a hill giant and im stomping around the karanas in FPS camera mode.

Its handy if you don't do it give it a try. Just awkward when you run into town and forget. Its funny when I thought about it when I first read this post I didn't even know I used this camera.
