Well, I have decided to pull EQ2 off my list so far...almost.
I am surprised at the amount of nays for EQ2 in my previous post.
Let me note more for you though before I say 100% ...."No"
I have a level 61 character.
I will NOT buy the Shadow Odyssey, which means max level is 70.
I had a good amount of plat...not a lot, but about 20+ plat to go into the game with.
I have NEVER maxed in any MMO, and by not buying the Shadow expansion, this makes max level...70 (EDIT: is 80...corrected by Tipa) in EQ2 for me.
As to someones comment...I stated I have learned to not "grind". This is quite simple. I will NOT open a quest log and FORCE myself to do them in order, and kill over and over and over.
I will split up my time in exploring wherever I can go.
Joining some pugs to do a dungeon.
Decorate my home.
Craft (not my favorite thing).
Just have fun in the hopes of leveling to 80.
Now, based on this, does everyone still agree that EQ2 may be a bummer after a year of not playing?
