What is your favorite, or the most useful, clickable item that you have/use?

For me, it's probably the Orb of Tishan from the Old Man Marley missions in PoK. I think there's an upgraded version of that, but I'm sharing this from the perspective of a very casual 85 Necro who hasn't played in quite a while.


Are there any other servers similar to p99?

I love p99 except for 1 thing. I find it it's too crowded. Ideally, I'd like to find p99 just with less people. I could play their red server, but I don't want to deal with pvp and I actually don't like the exp bonus.

New player questions - Loot settings and shaman vs cleric

Im a total EQ noob and just started on mangler. Last night I started my own group as a cleric on orc hill. I figured out how EQ groups work with camping and letting someone pull things to the group. I wasn't really sure how to use the loot settings.

Why do I struggle so much as Necro?

Wizard question - Arcane Destruction vs. Frenzied Devastation

I've heard contradicting opinions on when to use these two so I figured I'd ask the wizards here. Which do you use and when?


Question About Mage Let Heals

Edit: Mage "PET" Heals I found a level 50 mage killing Undertows PH a minute ago. The PH is a level 50 cleric sea horse. I noticed the mage was alone and I decided I'd watch him die. However, he didn't die, or do anything else. He just kept swim


"LaunchPad was unable to connect." Yet connects fine when run through VPN.

Any idea why this would not connect when I run it wide open? Fails every time. Then, when I fire up my VPN and connect anywhere, it starts right up. I would think just the opposite would happen.


Question about /tell windows.

How do you save the timestamps on /tell windows settings? IE if i close the window and recieve a tell 10 minutes later, i want the new window to show the time still. I know its possible b/c thats how my bard is, and i cannot for the life of me get my

Will the mini's for the BOT Medallions spawn in an Agent of Change? I know there are no respawns, but will there be a chance of them being up if I make my own instance by using the AoC?

Tips on getting a group in 50s

So I recently returned and decided to try a bard out because I like support classes. I soloed up until about 54 now but I'm hitting a wall and looking around it seems like bards are pretty much one of the worst solo classes. I haven't seen too much


Shaman/Shadow Knight Box

Just started these 2 characters to box together. Was curious as to what Mercs people suggest using as I level them up? I am on FV. I was thinking 1 dps 1 caster maybe? Or should I go with atleast 1 tank to 65 like most other characters do. Any helpfu


Been 10 years since I last played EQ, why can't I start a toon in their old home town?

Last time I created Vah Shir, I was able to start on Luclin, ini their home city of Shar Vahl. Today I started a new one strictly for nostalgia and the only option is Crescent Reach. Did I miss something in the last 10 years or did Shar Vahl get bl


(potential) Upcoming XP bonus - What will you do?

With the potential memorial day XP bonus weekend coming up, what is everyone planning to do with the opportunity? Personally I'm hoping to jump start a shaman alt using my Druid, to duo with my Monk.

I've been thinking of running an sk concerned a little bit about lack of low level players don't really wanna do TLP as it'll be dead when the next one comes out any thoughts about this idea? Was also thinking about maybe boxing a shaman but not 100%


Differences with P99?

Solo Ranger Bow Kiting Guide - Mangler Progression Server / Getting Started

Stuff to do at lvl 75?

Is there anything of importance that I should be doing at lvl 75 as a necro? I'm a newishly returned player who's managed to level a Necro on Xegony after playing for about 15 years or so, so my knowledge is very limited.


LF tradeskill combine with trivial over 300 and purely vendor bought mats. EQ Live

I don't usually play on live, so I know less than Jon Snow. I expect no such thing exists, but perhaps it does given the changes in how TS are raised. Looking to test an assertion about streakiness of successful combines. For this, I'll need 10s of


What to buy on DB Store?

Between subbing for a month for auto-grant and having 600DB cash on my 17 year old account for some reason I have 1100 DB cash to spend. I am looking for any suggestions for what to buy with it. I still have all access so I get the 10% off for the ne


Best 2-box X 2-box cross play setup?

I am about to start on Mangler to join some friends and while I typically prefer to play a single toon, I would like to box a toon that is "easy mode" for added DPS and that I can play as an alt. The twist here is that I play WAY more than my friends
