Not too bad so far, wish I had a duo partner though
Just started a level 1 SK, I have some plat if anyone wants to come and join me.
Not too bad so far, wish I had a duo partner though
Just started a dark elf wizard last night. Almost 6 now. Could always use a partner as well.
I have a 27 War that I play from time to time... If anyone else is around that level, I'd be down for a group on occasion.
Names Monsuun send me a /t if you need monetary assistance or want to group. Level 13 now.
I got a 60 wizard I don't play/haven't played in quite some time. Would sell/trade it reasonably.
I'm still playing this from time to time. I've mostly been working on my shaman recently. I have him at level 35 and 10 dose sow potions trivial now. I also have a 50 monk and 55 warrior if I'm ever needed by anyone. Shaman - Angier. Monk - Yoshizo. Warrior - Rahlae.
Haven't touched this in a while. Have a bunch of plat floating around, maybe I'll jump in during winter break on a twink.
Is the server still somewhat populated?
Any progress on getting this shit running on a mac?
It's been pretty decent. 750 people on right now.
I'm enjoying it. Great classic EQ nostalgia. Hit 12 last night, still in basic cloth
I manage to find a group every day without too much hassle at levels 5-12 so far.
Recent changes in GM staff have been a huge improvement, too.
Some friends and I just picked the game back up ~ I just went back to my old account and was sittin' pretty in KC today. The raid scene usually bears a pretty good load of drama on p99 - has it stopped being that way? I feel like TMO from Fennin Ro-retail has taken over? But like an update on whats going on at the top level would fill us in on "the loop." The board guild (which was fish bait, then Dark Ascension) seems to have disappeared since we last played. What about Inglorious Bastards? What happened to those guilds?
Outside of the drama from raiding - I typically enjoy just sitting in camps when it comes down to playing this game. I know what to expect when I play this, anyways. Im sure we'll see each other on the server if you're leveling. Im also sure that some of you have already been grouping with some of the guys that started new characters, that I know.
On it sometimes, lvl 18 Barb Warrior named Woadness. Really though, it's a time filler and nostalgia trip that won't last all that long and groups are tough since only 1 or 2 zones have people in any given level range. Kind of stinks that even though 700 people might be on, 1/4 of the server population is in the EC tunnel. However, if EQClassic happens, I may end up giving it much more attention.
@Daidraco: Most of FB/DA that remain are in TMO now. Yes, they're currently running the show. IB (whatever remains of it) is over on EQMac.
My Emulauncher isnt getting any server response. Ive tried searching for the spell files manually, but Im not having any luck. Where can I manually download the required files?
I had that issue last night also. It eventually connected then didn't download any files.
You can probably skip the patcher and run the client directly. There should be directions how to do that on the P99 boards.
Still leveling slowly if anyone wants to group with an 18 Wizzy.
Anissa in game.
P99 is the best old school EQ option available today, by a long shot. It's not perfect though. There is boxing, MQ, and RMT. These things are 'against the rules', but some people do slide through... Generally I think the admins do a decent enough job. It is a great place to get your nostalgia fix leveling 1-59.
I just can't bring myself to play this. The thought to starting fresh at level 1 naked, knowing the grind ahead of me just keeps me from pulling the trigger.
For a first char, I highly recommend heading to EC tunnel. It is easy to get thorns/HP/crack there, basically powerleveling through the teens.
But yeah, after that it is a grind unlike anything seen in modern mmos
The server is honestly perfectly fine, there's a huge population, there's action in virtually every zone, there's a thriving economy. It's definitely the best classic server available.

Only worth playing if you're lucky enough to catch a daily grind group, since no boxing allowed. This leads to long LFG times, and even more at higher levels unless you're a SHM, ENC, or WAR. All racial/class exp penalties are still in tact. Bards and SKs will suck your exp nearly halfway.
If you value your time, don't do it
Uhh the better the RMT economy is, the better. Are you retarded or something or just don't understand basic economics? Would you rather shit be so worthless that nobody would ever want to pay any actual money for it?
I don't care either way. I don't play there anymore, mostly due to reasons that have been previously mentioned in this thread. All I was doing was pointing out the obvious fallacy in your statement.
If anyone wants to gift me their old, unused, rotting account... I'd love to play again. Just don't think I have it in me to start yet again from level 1. Someone mentioned that EQMac is better, but since I'm Mac-less P99 is really my only option it seems.

EQMac is definitely a good option, although it does have moon cats and a lower population. RMT is going to be available on any popular server. Plat is cheaper on EQMac if anyone is interested in that.
Me and some old EQlive pals are having a good time on P99 so far. The population is so-so. I don't have any problem finding groups during peak hours. Although, that could change as I get higher. I'm only lvl 25 because I've been dicking around in EC too much (bartering nostalgia ftw).
I am bringing me and a couple people friends back. We should start a guild...
I don't see anything on there about a beta or anything. Is yeahlight(EQC) still planning to give the code to someone else to host? Definitely interesting news
Tyen is getting it
OK now someone get the code and turn it's classic awesomeness into a 5x exp PVE only permadeath discord style server.. give group/guildmates 5min to loot your corpse and have like froglok king/frenzy/efreeti/fg named drop a 50% rez scroll and gods/dragons drop like 5 100% rez's.
Good point. Root cc then? Somewhere far from any prospective developer would be good.
I started playing this yesterday and have a few questions.
1. How come that almost nobody is playing rangers or paladins? Only 14 Rangers determined by /who all ranger count.
I started as a druid, but i don't want to play a class that everybody seems to be playing. Like 90 online yesterday..
Are rangers as much shit as they wre in 2000 or did they implement some of the later stuff, that made them more viable?
2. Is Scars of Velious implemented? Its been said in some FAQ but the server is named "Ruins of Kunark", so i'm unsure.
3. How ist group playing especially in later levels? Or is everyone doing a druid quadkite solo grindfest..
4. What classes are needed most atm, would a cleric be a good option?
SOV isnt implimented. It has been almost two years of the same content with no expansions. When kunark came around they were saying it is ready for almost a year before the release. SOV isnt going to be around for a long time.
group playing in karnors etc is good. Same as live though were you wait for a long time LFG. Making friends and joining a larger guild will get you groups way faster.
Cleric is always a good option - they are always needed - also shaman are hella wanted - seems there is almost always just one or two shamans buffing an entire raid force.
1. Hybrid XP penalty and general weakness compared to other classes.
2. Kunark is live, Velious is being developed.
3. Up to 30 is good. 30-50 is slim pickins, 50+ is good. If you go Crushbone->Unrest->Mistmoore you'll see plenty of groups. After that it gets tough.
4. Seriously play a class you like. Groups generally want clerics...
So Tyen is now claiming that he and Nirgon have obtained EQ1 source from someone working at SOE. He posted a bunch of modelling stuff, but I'm guessing that's all available from the client? Anyways the P99 staff kept true to their Gestapo roots and cleaned up any mention of it.
On the P99 forum. As I was saying the mods there removed any mention of it. Below is one of the files Tyen linked. I'd take it with a grain of salt given his early trolling...
BTW Rogean, I'm guessing you read this board, why don't you just move stuff to the RNF section?
Salty is a skid mark and must be purged
Oh ya tyen and nirgon got that shit ezpz
I'd like for him to produce.... well anything. He doesn't have shit lol.
Tyen will have the last laugh when he's camping JBoots...in a browser!
Why would you believe anything Tyen says ever?
If he ever gets EQ browser to a point comparable to even any of the shit boxes on EQEmu, I'll shave my head and post pics.
He's a delusional nut job and a twiddler.
Which is a shame, because he was kind of a pal to talk to at first.
Tyen can barely play eq much less make it
Came back, looking for some lewties (plat, caster gear, etc) have an account to trade with a 50 pally w/ pre epic + guise of deceiver, also has a 50 necro. Hit me up!
still playing this anyone wanna grind
This was posted on the p99 forums but I thought it should be posted here as well. This is Nordenwatch's corpse tree in West Freeport. The screencaps are from Autotune.
I've been playing when I have time. I 3 box shaman / necro / berzerker. Killed vox two days ago - got 2 tobrin's, RBB & paladin book. Love it.
Something is going on with the economy of p99. The economy is suffering from inflation, big time. A thread about it (that was up for a few days *with* links to plat seller pages) was suddenly deleted, almost as if to be swept under the rug. Not sure what to think, but the economy here is suffering, and the staff is keeping quiet.
If you haven't figured out by now that P99's RMT ring is run by staff then you should take another look.
They "say" all kinds of stuff about policing the server, deleting plat, banning accounts, and insist a lot happens behind closed doors. The last time you heard about banned accounts was when Rogean released the illigeal winsock32.dll virus that within 1 day, was logged as a major threat with most antivirus companies and prevented almost everyone from being able to login to the server.
So fast to brag about banned accounts that were using MQ / SEQ but not so transparent about RMT operations.
Have not played this in a while, gave away my account about a year ago. Going to start an enchanter, anyone got extra Enchanter gear laying around or some spare plat for spells?
People still plat p99? I remember a shit ton of drama being in IB years ago with the Staff and shady dealings etc.
I didn't notice anything wrong with the economy when I was on there recently. People will always be buying/selling plat, but I would hardly say the economy there is "suffering". There's the typical highly priced items that you'd expect from Kunark, (Fungi's, etc.). On average though, most of the item's market value is holding steady.

Are you kidding me?
As a developer of this game, you have access to a market of 1000+ individuals who are willing to buy a digital product, that you have an unlimited free supply of, for cold hard cash?
I'd be shocked if anyone in this forum was dumb enough to NOT exploit this situation. OH NO I RUINED THE ECONOMY IN AN INCONSEQUENTIAL VIRTUAL WORLD.
Shady? Give me a break. This is genius.
Whatever happened to the EQClassic Project. Looks like they are updating time to time but have they just completely slowed themselves out? I would like to play EQ Vanilla if anything. Just to knock around a couple of dragon and a plane or two. I hate a lot of fun trying to get class armor out of this plane or the other.
I'll look, since I wrote it...
So P99 just crashed on my group and now we can't load the game nor can we even get to their website? Anyone know what's up?
downloading ill be on later if anyone wants to group up!
just started playing if anyone has any spare newb gear that would help.
if any of you starting on this server, i would advise you to stay far away from Tmo their officer Meccezan is running that guild into the ground.
Can't trust a dude with wetback hair and a pube beard.
If EQ taught us anything, it taught us at least that much.
WTB plat or perhapsa mid lvl accnt...pst
Is it even possible to start on this shit without buying plat? Is Red99 still active, or is it only P99 blue?
You know he has a 10 inch cock.I'm an officer of TMO on the Project1999 emulated EQ server. We dominate the server content, and make some extra money doing it. People laugh and joke about not liking me, but I'm really one of the most important people on the server. Email me at [email protected].
currently on blue server about 650 on at the moment. Sure its possible to go without buying but shrug not sure if i want to invest the time necessarily.
Funny thing is, only reason TMO is number 1 is people owning the server were banned/quit
Makes you wonder
