Best game ever!
Short version: New Time Locked Progression server opened a week ago, 12 weeks per expansion, won't go past PoP. Costs 15€ per month, no other fees. We're having fun just leveling and being nostalgic. Will be fun for few weeks at least. well worth the cost if you're a old EQ player I'd say. Zones are very populated, groups are plenty.

I'm up to 37 on my enchanter and 36 on the boxed cleric. Spent last few days mostly camping for equipment, not because it's really warranted at all, but for some reason it's fulfilling sitting in the middle of OOT for 5 hours straight waiting for a spawn. And I'm not even kidding.

Ohhhh, I am indeed! That'd be amazing
I'm up to 56 now on both toons, hanging out in Velks mostly. Dumb that I am I've sold most of the gems that I got on drops, just last night I realized I needed to check which gems I actually need and which to sell, but oh well, I'm stocking up now.
I do need to work on my Coldain faction first, which from what I've read is basically group/kill in Kael? There isn't many quests/repeatables for Coldain, correct? How long does that take, aprox?

We're on Agnarr, the latest progression server. Luclin opens up in... 9 days or so. From what I see in chats there's still plenty groups all the way from low lvl up til 60, so it's still healthy and I bet with Luclin opening there'll be a surge as well.

Been away in Germany for a long week and back today.
We could do some Kael arena as a group if you like, could do with the 4 chars. Or grab some extra dps etc. Maybe even do plate cycle which is good faction and could get all our missing plate parts. My War / Shaman still 56/53.
Pyen if you start playing and want a quick PL let me know. Though it is fun doing all the older zones in groups etc.

Cool, thanks! And yes, I'm up for Kael any time. Elundil has some helms which he generously offered, on top of the armor parts and gems ( ), so I'll hand those in tomorrow and see where I'm at faction wise and then grind if I need more.
From XPing in Velks I got maybe 1/4 of the gems I need, don't wanna think about how many I sold not knowing I should save them
Both my toons are about to hit 59, only a level to go!

Well, I guess that's a question of definition Tumble found a chill guild he joined, and he got me in as well. I joined up last night. A lot of oldtimers, people with families etc, but they get 30-40 for raids, which are pretty voluntary (no requirement for attendance) 3-4 times per week (correct me if I'm wrong, Tumble) and they progress at their own pace.
I think Elundil does raids on his own, with a friend, with boxed chars, is that right Elu?
So, is there's possibility of seeing raid content, if that's your thing? Yes. Will we raid as Ginnunga? Very likely not, if something dramatic doesn't happen.
I wasn't dead set on raiding when I started, I just wanted to get a nostalgia hit and it's just SO much fun. Since I didn't play EQ that hardcore the first time around I've yet to see like any raids, so when/if I now get to see them that's just a bonus. I just enjoy the grouping, the xp zones, even camping stuff. Crawlning through Guk, training in Velks, all of it.
I've done stupid things like completing full set of Temple of Ro armor, just because I found it a fun challenge. I think these servers are very much what you want to make of them.
Seeing as the XP rate is increased (lvl 55-60 is about 5 hours per level grouped, can probably be made more efficient if one wants, that's just my aprox rate), and a lot of quality of life changes are implemented (gear doesn't stay on corpses, maps etc etc) it's very much a EQ "Light" experience, compared to original. If that's something one would enjoy is of course individual, I personally have found it perfect for my enjoyment.
It's like 15€ to sub I think. I would very much recommend just trying, and if it's not fun that's all your out. Log on, make a char and see if there's anything drawing you in. If so, have fun for a while. If not, the memories will still be there.
But that's just my 2c

Me and Samion (old FR member), are having fun with our box team. Cant really raid all the big targets because of the MOTM buff, but we have been able to kill Phinny and some of the named in Hate.
We are thinking about finding a guild to join for Luclin, but havnt settled for anything yet.
