Default Tossica's Tale of Torment - Private "classicish" server

Greetings!

I have a stable and frequently updated private server that has been running continuously now for over a year. The server is not accessible through the public login server so you need an invite and our client to connect. This limits the population but ensures that the players we do have understand the culture and want to be a part of it.

It is a casual friendly environment made up of a few dozen friends with the intention of everyone being a part of the same team and working together. We raid once or twice a week and are currently working our way through Kunark content, getting epics and trying to finish up Plane of Sky. We will most likely be stopping at Velious but may potentially include Luclin depending on interest.

This is a work in progress PEQ compatible "retro" server that uses a custom RoF2 client. I have spent way too much time reverting zones to their original state, editing quests, tuning NPCs and editing loot tables to present a "classic" and familiar feel but with much of the drudgery of the "classic" experience removed.

Some major differences between this server and "classic": Boxing is allowed up to 6 toons but whenever possible grouping with others is encouraged. Armies of mages/pet classes played by one person are not tolerated so no more than 2 per player in a group. MQ2 or any other cross character scripting or helper apps are not tolerated. Toons in general are more powerful but NPCs are also more powerful in return. We have the first tier of AAs available once you reach lvl 51. We have a mostly functional bazaar that is accessible via the EC tunnel. Halflings can be Rangers and Paladins. Gnomes can be SKs and Paladins. The Beastlord class launched with Kunark. We have level caps in place with specific goals that must be met in order to raise the cap which is currently at lvl 54. Once we clear Plane of Sky I will raise the cap to 57. XP is slightly accelerated. HP/Mana regen is slightly accelerated. Out of combat regen kicks in after 3 minutes. There are far too many differences to list but in general it's a much more casual friendly game but still maintains a "classic" and familiar vibe and significant challenge for those players that fit that niche.

Check out our discord if you're interested in giving it a shot. We are always looking for new, regular players.

I'll add, ALL classic zones function as they should for the era. Lavastorm, Kithicor, Nek Forest, Highpass, E/W Commons, N/S Ro + Oasis, The Arena, Cazic Thule, Runnyeye, Paw, Freeport, etc have been meticulously reverted back to as close to original as possible. A large majority of all quests have been returned to their original versions or close to and out of era quests have been removed and 99% of all loot drops have been reverted for every zone through Kunark. It is still a work in progress but I have put well over 1000 hours in to customizing and trying to create a "classic" and familiar feel while still maintaining compatibility with a more modern client and all of the quality of life improvements that brings. It is a very stable and well established server with an active player base and frequent raids and groups. If you loved classic EQ, a serious challenge and raiding but do not have the time to commit to an end game raiding guild or just want a more casual experience overall, this might be for you.

We are still looking for a handful of dedicated players. We have now killed Trakanon and are a couple of months away from Veeshan's Peak. 2 months after VP has been cleared for the first time I will launch Velious. Plenty of time to get leveled and geared up!

We cleared VP for the first time last week and now the countdown to Velious begins. This is a "hardcore" EQ experience but with many, many quality of life improvements. If you enjoy dying over and over again in classic, Kunark and Velious era content with a twist, give us a try. This is a private server for friends and friends of friends so the population is intentionally small but we have a very active, friendly and helpful community. We raid at least once every week with other times when able. Join the Discord and see what we're all about!

This server has a really welcoming community. I played on here briefly and people were very kind and happy to help new people start out.
