Default Thinking of returning to EQII

Hey folks,
Was wondering if you could help me out. I went to the EQ2 website to figure out what i need to purchase to be all caught up on the expansions. Only to get even more confused. I logged into my station ID and this is the list of items I currently have:

In-Game Item: Carnivorous Plant
Entitlement: Kingdom of Sky
In-Game Item: 365 Day Vet Reward
In-Game Item: 182 Day Vet Reward
In-Game Item: 90 Day Vet Reward
In-Game Item: 30 Day Vet Reward
In-Game Item: 7 Day Vet Reward
In-Game Item: 1 Day Vet Reward
Entitlement: Desert of Flames + In-Game Item: Genie Bottle
In-Game Item: Gazing Orb
In-Game Item: Pet Monkey
In-Game Item: Mysterious Shard
Entitlement: The Splitpaw Saga
Entitlement: Auction Beta
In-Game Item: Talking Statues


What pack/expansion should I be buying to be all caught up?

You need to buy any expansion you haven't purchased to be caught up...

I've actually started this game again. I only had the original game, so for 39.99 I bought the All in One, it doesn't come with the Adventure packs (I got the one from D2D) but it has all the expansions and gave me 30 free days. I had no high level characters so I didn't really lose anything.

Don't know if I'll make it to the new expansion unless it gets a little more interesting. There is a lot to do but its spread out and travel as a newbie is pretty painful.

I was feeling nostalgic, I loved eq1.

I began EQ1 at the release of Kunark. I'm already losing interest in EQ2 the player base is pretty small and so far very unsocial.

I'm guessing when the expansion comes out there will be a lot of old players coming back.

It's playing fine on my 8600GT which is a $130 card, it runs much better then the $300 I originally tried it with (6800 series). I do wish it was dual core enabled, but according to someone on the eq2 forums there is mention of a new client being worked on that will be brought up to date. (rumor of course, he said the notes are on the test server)...
