    Hey Nayrue,


    Some old school players are coming to Pantheon. Some of us are actually still active in EQ2, mainly because there isnt anything else to play currently!

    I played EQ2 hardcore from launch through TSO.. I am Stealz from Dissolution / Flossie from Has Gone Linkdead - and yes, there is a good chunk of us around.

    Quite a lot of time in EQ2 but with level agnostic dungeons making it far too easy to hit maximum level I switched to LOTRO for the last part of the WFP (wait for Pantheon).

    Hardcore EQ2 player in the past.. Played from Beta up until about a year ago. Now, I'm hanging out with an old group of friends and playing GW2, while we are all waiting patiently for Pantheon.

    Orginally I played on the LDL server, which was merged a dozen times, but my toon names have survived - I played Solitude (Warden) and Avengelyn (Templar), mostly. Raided with Transcendence for a while, and a handful of other smaller guilds.

    I started raiding in DoF as a Brigand named Khanduras when Brigands had 100% ae immunity. It was a great meme. After that I transitioned between tanks but played a Paladin named Sarkden for a good while before transitioning again to a Monk & Bruiser named Khanonymous in Revelations. I did quite a bit of tanking around the time that Statue of Rallos Zek was a thing as well as several world firsts including Vyskudra the Ancient. That was a great fight.

    Skaer here. Raided with Chaotic Legion / Momento Mori / Allure. Also raided with a guild from Crushbone, that I can't recall their name, they were a pretty high level guild at the time.

    I also raided as Vertix for a while, including Devastation on Blackburrow as their off-tank (when I got banned for a holocaust joke someone took offense too). Never came back after that.

    Played on LDL from launch, raided with a few guilds that I can now barely remember. Dark Prophecy for awhile in the beginning, and then after the first merge I joined a raiding guild that came over. Main was Exodia.

    Started in EQ2 November 2004 with the guild Obsidian Hand (formally Shadow Guard in EQ and Shadowbane) on the Lucan D'Lere RP PVE server. Moved the guild to Venekor RP PVP server and got our guild name back (yay! Shadow Guard lives again!!) and kept a presence on there until the Naggy/Venekor merges. Elyse was running our guild on Naggy for a bit.

    Many of us fled back to Antonia Bayle RP PVE once the PVP servers were merged. We had been unhappy since ARAC (All Races All Classes) was introduced on the PVP servers any way. Had some goodie alts in Fironia Vie's Champions. They are a fun bunch of RPers.

    Joined up with The Dominion, a progression raiding guild heavy on the fun of raiding and not so much on the UBERZ. Those guys are great. Miss you Kat! It's all Fairweathyr's fault!! Stopped playing abou a year ago when life just got way too crazy to allow me time to dedicate to keeping a character up to raiding standards and on a reliable schedule. (I wonder if they know I didn't die IRL? Hm...) Hopefully that will change before Pantheon launches.

    Characters of note: Aeviel (Bloody Bunny High Priestess of DOOM), Koloara, Jhyl, Wildescent, Tuile, Threnody... and about 24 other alts that I played on as needed for raiding or just fun. Yes, I had 2 accounts.

    I was hardcore on Antonia Bayle for the Q side.  Played a high elf cleric named Benezetta in Firiona Vie's Champions - I was also their interviewer for guild applicants.  Whoa but that was a lot of years ago.  Then switched to Venekor and played a dark elf inquisitor named Anasur in Havok.  Was in Havok for years, then quit gaming in 2013 due to a house fire.

    I'm so ready to get back into gaming and hopefully meet up with new nice folks!

    What server are you guys on? I have a few toons in EQ2 but haven't played much since work as a restaurant manager doesn't afford me a set schedule. Would love to come and meet some peeps though.

    I played EQ2 off an on for years. It was a thoroughly dull experience and it just got worse over time with the SoE "Updates"

    *cough* desperate for cash *cough cough* PaytoWin *cough*

    Excuse me!

    Needless to say I did enjoy the style of PVP that was offered in EQ2. Sometimes battles between groups could go ON for a very long time. I found this especially rewarding as a Priest or Jinxer (necro, enchanter, rogue, Assassin, Dirge, etc).

    Edit (I played exclusively on Nagafen Server)

    EQ2 was my introduction to the genre. I joined shortly after launch without knowing what to expect. I distinctly remember the first night on a noob island; I couldn't stop and had about two hours of sleep before I had to go to work. Soon after, my wife and two sons -- who must have been around 11 and 7 at the time -- joined me, and we all have some fond memories from those days. We also found a nice casual guild and bonded with several of the people there. My wife still mentions an american couple occasionally (we're in Denmark, ourselves), wondering how and where they are today.

    Played tons of eq2. Ninjette Lewtz(station exchange) NIght Elf Templar loved the whole switch Freeport to Qeynos run and Spuck(vox) world firsts top guilds server firsts can't wait to be here. Wish Afterlife from mith marr was still around from eq1 :( Good ole Krakoor Jakk Shaman was with them all the time :(. Loved the website that kept track of your world/server firsts of everything was fun doubt another company will do that again.
