I don't like how the battles are locked and how buffs are only allowed through direct parties. To me it takes away from the mmo factor. You should be allowed to interact with all.
That's my worst complaint for EQ2. That, and access quests for higher zones. I might wait till they do the combat revamp in Sept to give it another shot. That splitpaw thing is tempting though.. what's the minimum level you can go there? (to solo)
