The Stream Team: Starting over on EverQuest II’s progression server

    
21

The EverQuest II progression server doors have opened! As crazy as it may sound, MassivelyOP’s MJ is excited to leave all her riches and Norrathian belongings behind on Antonia Bayle and start over from scratch on Stormhold! Why? Because it is a chance for folks to all start the game together, facing progression as it was meant to be without the temptations of power-leveling and twinking. Join us in game or in chat live at 9:00 p.m. to start the adventure with us. As a bonus, you’ll see something that the devs have sneaked in as a surprise!

What: EverQuest II
Who: MJ Guthrie
When: 9:00 p.m. EDT on Tuesday, July 21st, 2015

The show is over now, but we’ve embedded it here just for you. Don’t forget to check out past streams and playlists posted to our videos collection!

Denice J Cook Except I am not the least bit interested in EQ2 PvP. Tried it long ago — no desire. EQ2 is not what I go to for a PvP game fix and it never will be. Besides all that, I am capped out on characters; I had to delete one and still bought an extra slot as it is!

Denice J Cook I’m unfamiliar with EQ2 pvp. Is it like Wow in which you don’t really lost anything when you are killed or like  can your killer loot your stuff like in Ultima Online?

Just got caught up on the stream.

Hmm I am still not sold on this whole progression thing at least for me personally.  I came into EQ2 late so all this would be for me is removing things I have always been familiar with and limiting my options.  I can fully understand why someone who played from the very beginning would want to try this but I don’t think it would work for me.
That said I did enjoy watching and listening to MJ’s reactions to seeing things that were familiar to her from her own experiences so I still enjoyed the stream a lot.  I hope that you will continue sharing experiences of the EQ2 progression server on the stream.

Yes, both the EQ1 and EQ2 TLPS require either a DGC subscription, or purchase Kronos for game time.

Support for the EQ mac client was terminated some months ago.  Don’t know the status of any EQ2 mac client, if any.

Nope.  Everything is as it is on the current live servers, other than the expansion content is not available.  World, mechanics, crafting, races, etc.  All the same as on the live servers.

The world and the mechanics are the same as the current live servers, with some minor tweaks.  Really, you might as well just play the regular servers as play on these.  The only major difference is the gated expansion content; you can even play all the races in the game, regardless of when they would normally unlock via expansion.

dongs I haven’t subbed to a game since City of Heroes, so I’ve got a little spare change to spend.  I prefer subscription to f2p/b2p so it is a win win for me, luckily.
