Talking Karana (XP x3, Bots, Speed)

I did a thing! Originally I created this server for a buddy and to get our EQ on. We both hate "boxing" so Botting was our best bet. As soon as I opened a couple ports..people started joining.. we had 11 player last night! nice.. anyway the more the better... Here's some tweaks i've done to the server in case anyone here wants to see.

Server intent: Bot your way through good times. (IP limit 2 connections; this isn't a boxing server)
Basic Tweaks: XP x3 (bonus group/raid/hotzone), Speed that of SoW, POK Merchants for all Defiant Gear and all Fabled Gear, POK Teleporter / Buffer, Epic 1.0's added to Crushbone + Starter Gear
Advanced Tweaks?: To make it more Bot-solo friendly. Raised:: Crit damage, Archery Damage, Spell Crits, OUT of combat regen, Bot Regen as well
Loot updated in: Crushbone, Veskar, Guks, CofMist, PoFear, PoHate, PoNightmare, Chardoc......more you'll have to find

Note: Been testing some named mobs...they aren't easy to solo w bot group (intended!)....not impossible either..u can figure it out
2 Note: I probably left some stuff off this list.. but whatever you get the point.

Last: See you on..or not.. again this was only suppose to be for a buddy and me lol... I'm tweaking things as i get time ... i love eq / eqemu Thanks

Should probably think about auto skill ups, you level so fast (which is fine) that skills lag being a lot.

Added that on about a week + ago after someone in ooc mentioned it.. so that's in

Edit Other Additions:
1) Mercs Enabled.. (They seem to run /keep up with you better)
2) Karana's Hope Stone added to Merchant Connie in POK with an insta-click back to POK.. sorry non-gating classes that it took so long
3) Looking for feedback on other useful clicky's
4a) Working on: Getting a character Flagging NPC.-------------------UPDATE.. flags will be removed at next reboot tomorrow mornin
4b) Working on: Adding Epic 2.0's to some loot tables (1.5's already in somewhere!)

Last Note on "progression" : When I created this server it was because i hadn't seen everything in everquest originally. Now i definitely don't have the time to go through old flagging progress etc.. If you're looking for some hardcore progression and end game custom stuff this isn't the server for you. If you're looking to mess around, get geared up, talk some crap, tweak out alts, and just have fun; come online.

This sounds pretty cool, I'll be happy to check it out. :^)

Do you have any custom files that are needed?

I would love to help with this server. It seems as though you made it just to have a little fun, and I set up a dedicated server with my hosting a few days ago to do just about everything you did there, except I wanted to add chance of random drop 5 percent, or chance on NPC death to spawn a chest, etc... to keep things interesting. There aren't many bot enabled servers.

If you wanted someone to help scale the server and add some cool features, I have a bunch of ideas. Shoot me a PM on here and I'd be happy to shut my server down and help with yours.

Fridge, I remember your server from what seems like a long time ago. I think it was the first random loot server I had played on, and was the beginning of an addiction for me, haha. A friend and I had some fun times with that to the extent he learned to create his own server with random loot not long ago for us to mess around on.

Jahosphat, this seems like a fun idea here and will certainly check out your server. I like the merc addition as they seem to do it better, but it's also fun gearing out bots as well. Best of luck with expanding your idea and I look forward to playing.

Thanks for the kind words. My latest challenge is finding an untouched copy of SOF2. Underfoot on this server seems to reset the controls every time I summon bots. So I summon them with a set of socials, and all of the sudden when I hit the return key it doesn't pull up a chat cursor, and space bar doesn't jump anymore, the 1 key doesn't attack, etc... Hoping SoF2 fixes that.

Feedback on useful clickies you say? How about some old school clickies thrown back in like the DE guise and maybe a manastone you can use anywhere, also maybe removing some lore flags on some stuff at least like WR bags or something.

Clickie cure items are big hit's on solo servers not sure what era this server goes to but making progression quest for each era is fun and special clickies buffs are nice to have for each one done

Update Notes 12/29/16:
#findzone XXX - Enabled for all
#peqzone XXX - Enabled for all
More lewtz in random zones
A cpl of endgame-ish zones updated mobs to scale for merc+bot group
Removed level requirements for zones (If you die in a high level zone.. that's on you; i don't care NOR should have EQ originally... less handholding.. that always urked me)
Removed Flag requirements for zones ***NOTE: Just for an email stating some zones still not working.. i think i have a fix for what's happening. Be back on this. thx

To do:
1) Buff Bot not casing on groups.. Will be changing him to do all; next reboot
2) Porter.. I'd like to keep in current form and use his zone recommendations as a general progression guide. But let me stress, this server is not some hardcore progression server; need to look elseware for that. If you can't find a zone use #findzone with #peqzone
3) Trying to find a way to ask BST bots to resummon pet... to no avil yet
4) We have some help! Fridge is going to hook in a few custom quests and provide some help with cool stuff. Very excited.
5) Continued custom itemization/clickies.
