It is as solable as it was possible in Velious times. Certain classes manage quite well, others not so well. Group content might be partially manageable solo, as long as you know your class well and are well equipped. Raid content is for raids.

Finally the time has come. In a few hours the Elder Dragons server will be unlocked.
  • We will have a daily happy hour with 50% bonus experience at 6pm EST for 60 minutes.
  • We will celebrate the United States Independence Day on July 4th with 24 hours of double experience.
All events will be announced ingame, the experience bonus only applies to kills, not quests.

I have been following this project since the original post.

I was very excited to play here but unfortunately after seeing the server operator's attitude towards others and propensity for lying about their experience & skills, in combination with the server not being on the public LS means I will have to pass on this one.

The reason being I don't think this server is going to last more than a couple of months. Every time the operator runs into someone who doesn't share the same opinion as them they seem to just shut down and claim everyone is "attacking" them.

I will continue to keep tabs on this project. If proven wrong, and if the server operator's attitude improves, I may give it a shot in the future.

Thanks for reading.

-Dave

I was wary of that sort of thing simply from the guy thinking that waiting for boat rides is a "feature." Thanks for the heads up.

I just can't single box anymore, it's too boring LFG. 3box is ideal, 2box can work if you have the player base.

A new account, created today, who could that possibly be after last night's discussion? To clarify, there is a user in the EQEmu community who himself admitted to have spied on his players, more precisely he read the browser titles and published the "porn" he found there in the EQEmu Discord. This very person claimed yesterday that Elder Dragons would never be a success because we decided not to use eqemulator's login server. And now today someone creates a new account to claim exactly that again.
Strange coincidence.

By the way, the costs for the server are paid well in advance - to be prepared for worst case scenarios. Even if no one plays on it, it will be online for a long time.

Damn, who would ever do that? Sounds like an asshole. Sorry you had to deal with that.

not having your server on the public list is certain death.

i am going to give your server a shot, but please rethink this decision.

We all knew it would be.

He is trying to say that Secrets DDoS'd him with a strong enough botnet to bring down a whole datacenter and that he was paying 15k a month for hosting.

He was proven to be a pathological liar long before this anyway. Maybe he can use his "machine learning" anticheat to find out who DDoS'd him?
