I had been following Eqclassic for a few months before they shut down the site and the forums. Searching for information on that project is what led me to EQMac.
After think about this long and hard I realized EQclassic will just be plain rough. Here are some items going into EQclassic that I just don't see myself going through again:
Hybrid XP penalty
Large Race XP penalty
NO SERVERWIDE CHAT CHANNELS
No PoK or Luclin portals
Hell levels (like the ones at 30, 35, 40, and 45)
I say no thanks to all that stuff, particularly the hell levels and lack of chat channels.
Thats what made eq great if you ask me.
Hell Levels especially not only did it keep you in a certain area for longer than you expected so you got to learn more about the game it was a very large accomplishment when you finally got past them and you felt happy and satisified.
Leveling up alts through hell levels is annoying.
You want to bitch about stuff how about in the old days when casters had to stare at a book and never knew what was going on if they wanted mana~
