So lately I've gotten way back into EverQuest. Can't remember or recover my old forum login, so I figured I would just start fresh. Nobody needs to see my post history from over a decade ago when I was an edgy teen.
I picked back up on Mangler before the COVID crisis, but haven't had a connection worth a damn in a couple of weeks, so my raiding fell off. Shame, I was having fun. Started playing pretty seriously on Cazic-Thule. Got a handful of toons there, including a few heroics, and a bard with which I'm trying to clear all achievements. Only 52, but I managed to get Naggy and Vox taken care of, so I can get back to leveling. Also finished my bard 1.0
Friend decided he wants to start playing on Mangler again, so I ended up spending some coin to twink a beastlord. My guild needs a raiding beastlord, and it'll be -way- easier to manage a ****** phone hotspot connection during a raid with a beastlord as opposed to a bard... /melody doesn't even work properly half the time right now =(
So anyways, I'm planning on keeping up my bard on Cazic, my beastlord on Mangler, and I'm probably going to roll something when Aradune drops, but haven't figured out yet. Ramble ramble ramble...
Better late than never. These last few weeks in isolation would have been impossible without EQ. I have managed to do all the things I have been putting off "until I have more time". It has passed the time beautifully.
The last week or so, I decided to get the Fabled Shield of the Water Dragon
. I completed this for all my lower level chars that can use it on several servers EXCEPT FV. One person has been camped on the spawn point 24/7 for the last 2 weeks that I have checked. The character names always there are "Bonus" and "Boycott". There is an anonymous char there often as well. This P's me off to no end. I NEVER, EVER camp like this. I consider it one of the worst examples of sheer greed that one can do.
On the servers where I have obtained the drop, I log in, check if Faydedar is up, kill it if it is, or log until the next day. I am never in the zone for more than a few minutes either way. This allows others to do the same. I also check the zone and if there are others there I ask if they are after Faydedar and as they were in the zone before me, the mob is theirs.
Rant over, I hope everyone here and all their relatives and friends are in good health and COVID-19 free!! Edited, May 11th 2020 9:08am by KC13
I'm not one of the ones who has it perma-camped no FV, but I do have one or two on Brekt and can toss you one after the merger happens.
