Immediately felt sorry for op when I realised he may very well be a returning player posting in rnf.

If its worth anything to you op, p99 is a lot of nostalgia fun but the forums are a whole other game.

Same. Even having been an original EQ veteran, I felt like the initial levels took longer than I would've thought they would. I was so shocked and in awe when I first started playing the game though that I probably wasn't paying attention much to how long it took to level at the time.

I mean back in the day how much time did we spend just looking at zone features like the sky or some random building?

Eq wasn't fast back in 2000 and we were probably all mitch more of the mindset to "enjoy the ride" so it just wasn't as painfully perceived.

My first character back in '99, I was scurred of dying somewhere and losing my patchwork armor forevah. I'm sure that full 6-man group I was in camping the 4 undeads at the Nektulos wizard spire must have been bangin xp.

Lol ... the mobs killed per unit time back in the day would probably blow our minds today. Yet... we did it and remember the game so fondly.

First, thank you to all of you who constructive and kind posts. Your advice is greatly appreciated and I have printed it out.

Last night (Monday), I managed to join a wonderful group composed of all pet classes (coincidence) and we were mauling kobolds left and right for several hours. It was so much fun and I was able to get to level 7. I understand it's not necessarily the speed in which you level, but I really enjoyed this particular group. I know everyone plays at their own pace but plans were already being talked about for this evening and it's hard to not want to be a part of that. All of this brings back good memories since most of my friends aren't interested in playing at the moment. Sometimes I wonder if I'm crazy starting all this over again but it's just one character.

Thanks again for all your offers of help and kindness. It is greatly appreciated. To those just using this as a burn forum, bless your hearts.

I'm glad you had some successful play time. To address your final sentence, this essentially is a burn forum. I understand that you're new and don't realize what the Rants and Flames forum is supposed to be, but it's not the commenters' fault that you posted in the wrong forum. next time, I advise the relevant server's discussion forum [You must be logged in to view images.

I disagree. Saying itís not the commenterís fault is like advocating itís ok to be uncivil. I donít care what forum people post in. Treating people like shit just to do so is never ok. I would have them seek therapy.

Take care.

Take care.
The whole point of the forum is for that type of stuff though. It's literally why it exists. If you post here, you will be trolled (and may troll as well, if you so choose); that's the point of the forum.

I would hope that even the trolls can recognize a thread that was from a legit new player to the server that was unfortunately posted in the wrong place, and treat someone new with decency until they deserve the full RNF experience.
