This actually sounds super fun except for one tiny detail. This is just my opinion, but the "no boxing limit" thing is what will keep me from playing here.

I'm honestly more interested to see what we could "raid" at the various level caps than the pvp, heh. How many level 20's does it take to farm yaks? :p

But yeah, no box limits seems rough. Someone running 6 mages could run by you and you wouldn't stand a chance.

In past seasons/servers this is really much less an issue than you would imagine.

People that 2+boxed were just fodder for those that were even half way decent pvpers. a group of 6 real players > a group of 1 player and 5 bots.

We did this to cut down on petitions of XYZ person is 431boxing. Then we have to investigate and take time to deal with it. Do that 50 times a day for 50 different players and well..it gets fucking annoying.

This season (nice thing about seasons, we can try diff things) we decided to see how it works out. If it doesn't, wont have it next season.

That whole "seasons" idea is a good idea for any modern server. I like that.

Always get hyped for a fresh launch, especially if there will be some population behind it. Logged in today to check this server out. Kind of turned off by the fact that there is a gear merchant in Nexus. I don't think this server is for me. I guess it sees PvP as the major component, and not the gearing/leveling experience with PvP mixed in?

I was hoping to just enjoy leveling and gearing up on a fresh server without intent to participate in the PvP aspects. Oh well, have fun you PvP'ers :p

That's correct we are pvp focused. There is a gear merchant in bazaar to buy basic gear (kunark sets @ level 20) for coin. The best gear is bought with pvp points (gained by killing other players, or participating in PVP events) in the bazaar.

We give out the low end gear to help players jump into the pvp. So new players aren't at such a gear disadvantage because they didn't start day 1.

Default Drunken Gnome Race - Scheduled Sunday, June 11th @ 8PM EST / 5PM PST

Reminder: We only run the Titanium client! see www.eqpvp.com for 'how to play'.

Drunken Gnome Race - Scheduled Sunday, June 11th @ 8PM EST / 5PM PST

Event will be left running for at least 48 hours after the race begins (Tuesday, June 13th @ 8PM EST / 5PM PST), with a potential extension.

Event items will drop only for those in the race and will be no drop! This will be one gnome to keep!

Checkpoints will be installed at various zone points/npc's which will note your progression. The race will obviously be starting inside Akanon and ends somewhere in Odus (you will find out). The checkpoint system will notify you of the next waypoint and the final destination.

Requirements to be in the race:

Must be a gnome
Must be level 1
Must be bound to Akanon
Be in Akanon to start the event (you can arrive after and still participate)


Those in the event will not able to do the following until the event ends (or they complete the full race):

unable to group
unable to be buffed by anyone but themselves
unable to rebind
unable to use nexus teleporters
unable to be teleported by other players


There should be no interference from outside players who are not participating in the event. Doing so will risk isolating your character in a zone that you will not be permitted to leave.
