    Not really sure where I should make this in the forum so hopefully off-topic is alright. Anyways, i'm a pretty experienced gamer (Ive been at it since I was 6, so approximately 13 years) but my experience with mmo's is lacking. So can you guys list some mmos to help catch me up to speed? Right now im trying archeage plus blade and soul but i dont know if those would be the right games to prepare me for this game. (Can't wait for this game, i'll most likely spend all of my free time playing it.)

    Nothing can really prepare you/us for the unknown.. but, I'd recommend:

    Play on the EverQuest current progression server "Agnarr". There are emulators of the older EQ; but I think (personally, don't actually know) it'd be more akin to the progression server but without the RMT that is currently rampant. If you look past the use of Krono (the RMT currency); it's probably your closest experience too from what I'v seen so far.

    Handy links:

    (what it is) progress server info:

    Be warned.. it's not easy going. :)  -- you may need to ask people for help.
    If you do choose to play.. Lemme know if you need help on here and I'll try and log on and help out/give you some info.

    I would say the easiest MMORPG to play now and it has been around a long time is World of Warcraft.  You can play the free version until level 20 which is nice if you are on a budget like the majority of gamers :)  It is fairly easy to follow and to learn and it will get you fairly knowledgeable of the basics of MMORPGs ecept for the social/community aspect.  The tradeskills/crafting is good, the guild system is ok, the game is mostly soloable which is NOT what Pantheon is but it will get you started.

    Thanks both of you for the responses. I ended up getting EQ and i am oh so very lost. It'd be a great help if you could teach me the ropes?

    I sent you a PM. Hopefully I can help you out with any questions you may have :). I second Nimryl's suggestion on trying out the Agnarr progression server on EQ. I've had a positive experience with nearly everyone I've met on that server.
