    In case anyone here cares, or would be interested. Everquest 2 launched PvP servers last night. I'm currently playing on Nagefen.

    Anyhoo just wanted to give everyone a heads up. ;)

    I've played both (as well as Guild Wars) and was not impressed w/ WoW at all.

    Got my 1st Master tonight, almost couldn't get to the name that had it. Was being camped by at least 2 lvl 20's goodies. :(

    I think everyone here plays WoW, or recently Oblivion.

    Zeke_Mo has been playing for less than a year and already has close 700 hours. Worst mistake I ever made was turning him onto that game. :dead:

    Kinda? its freaking pathetic.... I played for about 6months racked up around 300 hours or so and that was it. Got bored and burt out on the game. I know people that have played the game for as long as its been out (even into the beta) and still play it as if it was a full time job.

    Anyways, we are hijacking this thread.... so back on topic. PVP in Everquest huh? How is it?

    Everquest is sort of like the predecessor to WoW. It's often called Evercrack too.

    Yar. Evercrack2 is even more addicting (though I never played EQ). :p I'm really liking the PvP so far. In the begining it was kinda tough always getting ganked but now I can do some ganking and whatnot. When get bored of that there is still all the PvE to do.

    Xie i also play EQ2 byt on lucan, it is a great game, far better than WOW.

    I was thinking about transfering to a PVP server, some questions do you lose exp. if you are beaten in PVP. Also do people just constantly fight you and lastly, can anyone attack you at anytime or do you first have to agree to fight?

    - You don't "lose XP" .. I believe you do take xp debt just like a normal death still though [much better then the shard days though ;)].

    - You can constantly fight if thats your thing, you can also find instances, or just not over populated plays to level if you want.

    - They have level limits based upon your zone (ie. Commonland is 8 lvls - so 8 above and below). So anyone of different faction (Q vs F) can attack you if you are within there range yes. I find it rather interesting as you have to always kinda watch out unless your in an instance. The major plus is that it's harder for farmers. :)

    Oh and here is "Official PvP info" from EQ2 forum.

    Any other questions I'd be happy to answer also. :)

    Xie am i able to switch servers? As i don't play much because my guild are crap, in fact i've only ever met a few and it would be nice to play with someone on a regular basis, but i don't think i'm open to starting a new char yet, but maybe i'm a lvl 29 wizard right now, and a little bored i've never tried a melee class i've always been a mage or sorcerer of one kind or another.
