Newest Expansion

Postby Goofydoofy » Tue Nov 15, 2016 10:15 am

So, are we getting boned with the new expansion? No extra levels?? Seems to me they were figuring in extra levels from out current expansion. Now we get this little money maker filer expansion until they come out with a full blow more levels expansion. 3 years without extra levels?

I'm afraid without new levels, how much play time am I going to get out of this? I already have like 250AAs banked on all three toons. Once I get max AAs again, there is no reason to play. I hope I can get more than two months gaming out of this.

Well there is more to eq than maxing aa/levels. I don't have a count but it is a substantial increase that you will be working on, so if that's your only reason to play it will take some time.

Yay! Thanks Glauri! I have maps now and will read up on progression in a bit. Still need to order the expansion for Skotomo/Turar's account, but Nerple's got the collector's edition because I was apparently into wasting money a few weeks back.

Hehe i'll be ignoring the new expansion for a while probably ( even though I have it..) need to get caught up on TDS and TBM first since I just came back. Got alot of the TDS stuff done so far.

I'll be playing weekends again now. I can help with anything. I won't just be focusing on the new expansion. There is a lot I didn't get done with my alts due to hitting max exp and having no desire just to finish tasks without getting any benefit.

Think outside the box. if at max exp, go for a new goal of max gear stats.

That would require named farming and raiding. Nah.

It appears there are a billion new AAs in the new expansion. No worry about getting max exp anytime soon. What I noticed is extra tradeskill AAs! WTF is this about?!? How many times do I have to max this shit?? I wonder if they are going to come out with some super neato new tradeskill quests in the next expansion with extra levels.

Some AA's cost up to 100 AA's. As a ranger my AA's max at 27,500. It's insane what they have done.....so annoying. I would like to see them do like a 10 level increase and some AA's.

I'm sure they will do a 5 level increase with the next expansion. I thought it would be this expansion since a lot of the focus effects etc are capped at 110 level. So, the prep work started a year ago. 10 levels would be to mind boggling for them with new spells and gear etc. 5 levels is almost to much to handle for EQ.

Looks like the new spells revolve around cooperation casting. Good for raid set-ups. Your spell goes off if a different Druid casts a heal spell that lands blah blah. Back to setting up spell calling rotations for classes. Casting Complete Heal in 10 seconds...Praco NEXT! Ahhh, the good old days.
