Tanks have always worn hp gear for some fights and difficult zones. They wear it for the same reason casters do... to live longer. Invasion is one of the top 5 most difficult zones. It takes an experienced and prepared team to do zones like invasion. At level 40, you don't really belong in Invasion....

Personally, id be great if they removed trophy so that you could keep doing the same easy exp, but i doubt that will happen. Each person w...

Looking for status?

We have trophy lists, lets add some code to track the number of unique kills you have. It could definitely factor into your prestige, and would give people something new to try for. I've seen this on other muds, and its kinda cool. It adds a new element to the game without having a direct effect on ...

quests to give up eq to get eq better than the current top level eq leads to eq escalation. eq escalation was a major problem 2 wipes ago, and eq was seriously raped to prevent that from happening again. im against that because it takes more top end eq out of the game and prevents lower level/newbie...

Bitching idea. That would give zone builders a new tool in creating neat zones. Also would make languages somewhat more useful. Also you could help keep certain races out of areas without having to post massive guards (which can usually be bypassed with tricks).

On Alternatives to reloading zones: 1. do nothing 2. have regular reboots I think choosing one of these solutions (especially choosing in a mutually exclusive way) is a bad thing.
