EQ is hands down one of the hardest MMOs when you're brand new. Most EQ vets I know either laugh at you or wince with pain when you tell them you want to start a new character on a new account. Grinding from 1 to 90+ solo is an extremely daunting task even as the best solo class in the game, necro. Sony tried to make the grind a little more solo friendly with the addition of mercs and more forgiving solo zones, but as free to play, you can only use tier 1 or 2 mercs, which are not that great. You are also limited to 250 AAs max as free to play which is extremely limiting when you do get to that point in the game.

The world is big. The quests are epic (especially the ones to get your epic weapons). Possibly the most important, the people are civil and helpful. Get into a guild ASAP.

Everquest was the first MMORPG and is STILL my #1 all-time favorite game. No other MMORPG comes even close to the amount of content and features as Everquest does with over 18 huge expansions. Everquest sets the Standard for this genre of games. (Only Elder Scrolls series even comes close)

Gameplay has considerably changed over the years, EQ is no longer as strict in many aspects such as corpse recovery is no longer needed and powerful, customizable mercenaries are available to enhance game play, greatly reducing the need for groups or organizing guild raids. You can solo your Epic Quests at level 80 now with a Mercenary on a Paid Account with a dual-boxed team, no problem! You can even upgrade or create a character at level 85 character, fully complete with raid gear and platinum coin for a very reasonable fee, to explore the high-end content.

Even with the lower server populations after 10+ years in existence, there still is way too much to do in this game, living up to its name of Everquest. The number of vast zones, huge dungeons, hidden lore and equipment, enormous cities, it is simply overwhelming. Character depth with 100 experience levels, hundreds, or even thousands of spells and skills, and group mechanics so perfectly complex as one must really master their character classes to achieve end-game experience levels, especially when dual boxing solo, which brings entirely new challenges to the game.

A classic game. Compared to current selection of MMORPG's this might seem a bit low-brow, but it was a benchmark for the day. Good play for nostalgia.

Free-to-play with upgrade options ( Silver and Gold accounts ), Everquest still has population on many of its servers. Content up to VoA ( Veil of Alaris ) can be accessed for free, and characters can obtain up to level 95 ( without gold or purchase of the latest expansion ). It's never been easier to pick up, and catch up.

Whether returning for nostalgia, or coming into the game for the first time, Everquest still has something to offer. There are plenty of guilds available, group and raid content, and solo opportunities for any class you're willing to invest in.
