Contrary to my steam play time I have well over 1,000hrs invested in EQ2 with my 3 endgame characters. This was by far the most fun I've ever had in a generic style MMORPG.

I did play WoW for a while but the graphical style of WoW and the over simplified skill system kinda bored me to death.

Everquest utilizes an in depth skill system that requires you think before using points in a particular tree. Granted classes are not really open like in some of the new MMOS but the class itself has a lot of customization.

Example: A wizard has class restrictions forbidding the use of heavy armor and a variety of weapons. But it allows a rounded out skill selection including element proficiency and damage/debuff modifiers.

All in all I strongly recommend this game for any and all MMO players. F2Players are not restricted like in many other F2Play games. Level cap is 85 and the auctionhouse requires F2Play auction tickets to use otherwise buying the All access pass makes most everything free besides Expansion stuff.

My first love of MMOs. Unforgettable experiences playing with my family will never escape my mind. Everquest truly is a mmo rpg and I think Everquest Next will be revolutionary.

sequel of the very first very succesfull mmo. Its eventually bugfree, any raid mechanics/feature you see in ANY other mmo, that was developed in one of the Everquest game, and ALL other mmo literally just an Everquest clone. Played EQ2 only for a few hundred hours, played Everquest 1 for like 5 years in the early 2000s, never ever had such feelings again in any other mmo and since that i also played the Everquest1 mechanics thief Wow, SWTOR, guild wars 2, Eve online. Cant wait for Everquest Next!

i have everything i need to run this game.... and im far from happy... ive spent the last 3 hours tryinh to figure out why my computer doesnt want to play the game... all my files are valid, installed, as well as updated...yet, it stills wants to say "play" so i click it... IT then says "playing" so i wait.... then it pops right back to "play"....soooo? the first time i played this game i didnt have this issue... my old computer was a p.o.s. and it ran it perfectly fine... i dont see the damn issue with a computer that is only 4 years older than it... and my buddy's brand new computer running it... weird how old and new run it but god forbid the midaged one.. *slams face repeatly to keyboard* HELP?!?!?! lol

Far too generic, if we needed another theme park MMO we would ask for it. Quit suggesting past ideas and think of something new for us guys to do!
