EQ2 UI

When i first began playing EQ2 and started looking for a UI replacement for the ugly default one, i turned to ProfitUI much like everyone else.  Ironically, this sort of went against my minimalist preferences when it comes to UI’s in general.  While it eliminated certain frames such as the SoE bar, it also introduced many others. Original layout The …

No Luck

I’ve been running the Nexus Core advanced solo for about a week now.  It seems to be the zone that drops weapons, among other items of course.  What I’ve been trying to acquire is a sword or great sword upgrade of some kind.  As per my typical luck, or lack there of, I’ve been cursed with bow after bow after …

Shadowknight Samurai

It’s official.  I’m now a Shadowknight Samurai after completing the new armor quest chain in Vesspyr Isles. That along with my katana pushes me over the top of ridiculousness.  I love it though so all is good.  Speaking of ridiculous – the stat explosion in this expansion is just that.  I went from 70,000 HP to close to 400,000 in …

Expansion Day

Tuesday marked the release of EQ2’s 10th expansion – Tears of Veeshan.  With it came a ridiculous amount of changes to stats along with more stat explosion.  The list of new stuff is too long to list here so I’ll just mention the core features.  Full info can be found here. New class – Channeler New Dragon-themed AAs AA limit …

Cape Town

Yes yes yes technically they’re called cloaks but, let’s be honest, these are capes.  LOTRO has the actual cloaks covered while EQ2 has the hoodless cloaks, or capes.  Either way, i love both and make it a habit of collecting as many variations as i can.  Sure it may kill my inventory and bag space but i could care less …

Disc of Dreadful Omens

After 30 days of accumulating daily reward tokens, i had enough to blow on a bunch of interesting items.  My options were between a few large capacity bags, the seven year veteran reward prestige home, and a selection of flying disc mounts.  There were a lot of other options but none i really even considered.  It took everything within me …

Throne of Fear

Continuing on with my advanced solo rounds brings me to Throne of Fear.  Imps, eyeballs, and my mercenary being his typical useful self.  By that of course i mean being completely useless as only they can. I’m starting to notice their lacking as the levels get beyond 90 but at least they bring some comedy relief once in a while.

Sleeper’s Tomb

Another day and another advanced solo under my belt.  This time i ventured into the Sleeper’s Tomb instance and i now can see why most people don’t farm this one for loot.  Being my first attempt, as well as not being max level, really slowed down my completion time dramatically.  I was making pretty decent time until i hit the …

95

Thanks to an extremely fun and sometimes crazy Skyshrine group, i managed to hit 95 on my Shadowknight. This makes my first ever max level character of any kind in EQ2.  Despite my actual account being over four years old, i never managed to hit cap at any time.  This was mostly due to other MMO’s i was involved in …

Temple of the Faceless

Continuing my journey through the signature quest timeline brought me to Temple of the Faceless advanced solo instance.  While i briefly watched a quick video before entering, i obviously didn’t pay any attention to the final boss mechanics!  I enjoyed a few deaths followed by a massive face-palm after i realized what i was doing wrong.  My basic dragon bashing …
