You seem to be stuck on this zone thing...sorry but while EQ1 might have felt huge in the beginning..a lot of it was wasted space and underused. To me each zone is unique in EQ2 and that is what I like. Each zone feels alive unlike EQ1 did.

All I'm pointing out is EQ 2 zone feels small and compact. I'm not "Stuck" on it. I am arguing my position which keeps being called wrong and innacurate. EQ 2 zones dont blend together well and I think thats a killer for immersion.

Did you do any heritage quests? How many did you complete? There are still tons of other quests that have decent rewards. How about the collection quests? Those are very good for XP.

Yes I did heritage quests, I also did a few epic quests in WoW. Which are completely comparable. EQ 2's quest system is better and offers more depth. But WoW quest system offers more reward in comparison. The heritage quests I started doing were. Shiny Brass Halberd, Dwarven Work Boots, and Ghoulsbane. I didnt finish the entire quests because they were designed to scale to level 50, I did what I could and the rewards were comparable.The issue isnt with the big epic type quests. The issue resolves in the smaller quests aimed at the more casual gamer.

You dont need to be level 50...just need a group or wait till higher level...

some great changes where made to EQ1 Recently, old timers should check out the last 2 patch messages They recently spread out the pre 50 spells, you get them every level now. They have really adressed alot of class balence issues, the classes are much better balenced now. I play a 70 mage and i've never been as happy about balence as I am now.

Regards,
Mike

yeah i agree about the smaller quests offer little to no reward, but the big quests are well worth doing, but are very inacessible to solo players for sure. but makes the reward all the more pleasing when you finally pull of a big quest.

our guild Allure on najena is 3/4 of the way through the fire and ice lvl 50 quest in which we will all get prismatic weaponry, theres about 40 of us doing the quest, with everyone helping each other to get to the same stage in the quest, it adds a new spin on the game when you have such a strong guild, but your right the game is heavily stacked towards guilds towards the endgame. But its still great fun, im loving every minute of it, lots of frustration and lots of triumphs keeps me coming back

Well since I have started playing last week I have had no troubles at all... WoW is boring as hell though compared to EQ2. Im lvl 16 and have only grouped twice just to kill a single foe and then the group disbanded. Its too solo friendly at the lower levels, they should have put some group requirements sometime to get people into knowning how groups work.

At least in WoW and in Eq2 I can swim in water and jump over stuff. Not to mention grouping with people without going to town.

Default Re: My Indepth Comparison of WoW verses EQ2.

good review,i played EQ2 for 4 months or so,and i left eventualy since the game felt more like a second job then a game,playing WoW these days and im enjoying it ALOT more,you can play 30-60mins and still feel that uve made some progress,in eq2 i felt like i was quite group dependent to get anything done,sure they added solo stuff but it wasnt the same,and PVP is WoW is a big plus,nice 2 take pauses from questing and grinding and just pvp some,only other option in eq2 was farming writs,farming resources or standing still infront of a trade skill spot and basicly do the same circle of key strokes that u do when soloing.
