I found if you can struggle to level 4 and then find a good long term kobold group, you can make it to 7 or 8 pretty quick. It's getting much better.

Level 2/3 with no pet takes forever. There's coyotes that'll kill you fast. Wandering skeleton (the level 6 one, not the level 1 decaying ones) plus that dam troll make life pretty crappy. Chances of getting a kobold camp group is very low until level 4; they're yellow and red con's so you're not landing a nuke on them anyway.

So after 5 hours of playing you've finally managed to ding level 3, looted every corpse up to now. Just as you're about to finish off a kobold runt that dam skeleton wanders by killing you.

OH FFS! Gnome mages suck! Leave the corpse, delete the toon and go make a DE necro! They rock.
Why the fuck do mages get reclaim energy at level 1 but no pet until 4?! dumb class is dumb

And this is what I believe is the core of the spirit of EQ, despite everything else, enjoying what you are doing in there! [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

Love seeing people enjoying their chars, alts, toons, whatever you name them!


Yay! [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.][You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.][You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.][You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

Devs probably intended to give them pets at 1. Staff here should fix. Why do all these classic mechanic people want a broken class? I'm not having fun with my mage. I should have pets to reclaim at 1. I'm quitting and charging back my donations! Hope all you terrible people rot in hell for wanting mages to be miserable!

It's because many of the utility spells can be used by more than one caster class. And if it was such a spell, it was easier back in the day just to put the spell in the game at the lowest level it could be used by one of the classes than to create multiple different iterations of the spell.

Reclaim Energy can also be used by Necromancers and Enchanters, who both get pets at level 1. Hence why it is a level 1 spell. It's not a Mage-only spell.

The point is not why it's a level 1 spell, it's why mages GET it at level 1.
