I tried it, and every group I joined was a just a random collection of people who had 0 social skills. I never remember EQ being like that, people communicated, even if it was negative.
I often wondered why they never made a new server every so often. Having an untwinked world for guilds to develop would have been nice. I know its different now, but before a server could only accomodate 1 or 2 uber guilds without making hardships on the up and coming ones.
My toons were level 65-66 (on both accounts), gear wasn't elemental. I was doing planar raids with a guild and didn't do that bad. I heard that GoD put serious emphasis on resists, which I never really got to test.
IMO if you have a 60 + toon you'd do fine in EQ 1., But as we have mentioned before. The game is massively catered towards high levels. The only time low levels actually gain levels is if there alts. Its an extremely hard game to start out new in TBH. Unless you know someone.
It's not a bad game. Its just probably one of the most time demanding MMORPGs that exist right now. I sometimes log in my 67 enchanter and Level 70 Beastlord to have some fun. But the game is hard to play if you're not willing to dedicate alot of time to it...
P.S. and the UI is so frustrating after using WoW or EQ 2's UI :P
