Everquest 2 is in the same league as World of Warcraft, Guild Wars 2, and even the new Final Fantasy MMO, but none of these other games are so evolved they’ve revolutionized the overall experience. This results in an overload of similar content presented through different layers of graphics, lore, classes, creatures and underlying support systems (such as crafting and raiding). Don’t get me wrong, many of the games have “unique perk features” (e.g. GW2 allows you to dodge attacks), but these perk features don’t qualify as bringing MMOGs to the next level of gaming experience.

EQ2 trumps the competition when it comes to overall content, playability, many features and functionality; and in some cases far beyond the other games.


1. Mercenary, which is like having another player with you, a single character can solo most of the dungeons and heroic areas/monsters of the game. This opens all players who use a mercenary up to the majority of the content without having to look for a group and rely on others to play.

2. Alternate Advancement, a system that allows the player to decide what percentage (up to 100%) of their experience they want to go to this secondary point system, which opens some new skills.

3. Quests, EQ2 has an unique balance of presentation for it's quests. The players can quickly and blindly click through things to move on through the next step whereas players who are heavy into a storyline/lore can interact and engage with the NPC. The rewards are also well designed and refined imo.

4. Guild, EQ2's guild system brings their players together, sharing their accomplishments and keeping them connected better than any other MMO. The guild system with automatic notifications toward the player's achievements, level gains, and finding valuable items. It also has a built in Voice Chat which works great. EQ2 has the best Guild system out of all mmo games. Period. EQ2's guild system also have the Guild Hall (home of the guild). No other mmo game comes remotely close afaik.

I've played EverQuest since I was a child, and EverQuest II just really enhances the feel that rather than a game it's a world. While you can follow the quest line and get pretty high soloing, the game in my own opinion is more fun just running around with a group killing camps and dungeons.

You may be thinking 'this guy has spent tons of money on this game', but no! I haven't spent a dime on EverQuest II, though it definitely deserves it. With tons of races and classes, this game reaches maximum variety of choices. It has many little features that are cool like SOEmote with face tracking, now it has voice chat for groups/guilds, and it's graphics are stunning for a modern MMORPG.

I play this with a few friends, so I suggest doing the same if you can :)

Five years into playing this, I have yet to find another MMO that immerses me in quite the same way or has the variety of content for all playing styles. I'd recommend it in a heartbeat.

An absurd amount of content that's worth your time to explore. One of SOE's greatest accomplishments.
