If you have been playing EverQuest lately, you know that they have doubled experience for their 13th Anniversary. Well, you know what that means right? It’s a Power Levelers dream!
When I started playing again after 5 years of being MIA, I realized that I had to relearn the game from the ground up because I had totally forgotten everything. You know how they say it’s like riding a bicycle? Well, it’s sort of true, but you have to take a refresher course to get you back on track. What I did was I started playing my Necromancer who was level 12 when I began in late February. I played for a few hours then I couldn’t play it for a week. Then when I finally did get to start playing it again I got hooked on the game again and now in less than one month my level 12 necromancer is level 47.
When I first started playing EverQuest in 2002, it took me 6 months to get Xanapus to level 16 and I gave up on him and created other characters. When I started playing Xanapus again it took me another 6 months or possibly a year to get to level 50. I have done in less than one month what I couldn’t do in 2002/2003. You see how frustrating that is for me? But it isn’t my fault that the game is much easier now than it was 10 years ago so that does make me feel a bit better.
My guild is still MIA, I only see someone on every once in a while. Even though I am the only member of my guild who plays every day, or at least that’s the way it seems when I get on, I am not about to abandon them because I am still loyal despite the fact that they are all gone lol. Besides, I don’t want to have to start all over with new people, and who knows if I will even continue playing in a month from now, I might get bored with it and quit again and I will have left my guild for nothing.
I started thinking today that I have abandoned Lord of the Rings Online for EverQuest so I tried logging in today and every time the launcher tries to launch the game, it crashes and I am unable to play. They did an update on it so perhaps the update doesn’t work with HDMI for some reason. I will have to plug the VGA back into the TV so I can see if that will work. It’s kind of frustrating because I’m almost positive my [hobbit] house maintenance fee needs to be paid for lol.
I am having fun again in EverQuest and that is a good thing. I quit for many reasons but one of them was that I was bored to death. I mean I would literally fall asleep while playing, that isn’t good is it? So thankfully I am not bored now and I hope it can keep my attention for a bit longer.
