This is an EMU server that has a small friendly population providing a great experience that I wish to tell more people about. First off, I don't know any of the GM,s and have no vested interest in this server except for my characters.
The server forum page is Kildrukaun's Prophecy Index page . There are 4 GMs that work pretty hard to provide a unique experience in a small faster format then regular eq.
1. Out of combat mana/HP regen rates make it so the game has little downtime.
2. Major mob spawns anywhere from 8 hrs (dragons) to as little as 2 Hrs (Classic gods / VS)
3. All mobs are scaled to be doable with about 2-3 groups. Once you acquire better gear the scaling goes down. For instance the first time we killed Trak it took 2 groups. This morning I did it was 1 group, and 3 people in my group were 57-59.
4. There is a porter in every major town in Classic, and Cabalis. GMs are working on adding more for some Kunark cities, and hopefully Velious.
5. Factioning is faster then live. It takes me 1 complete clearing of MM to go from threatening to Max ally for dragon faction.
6. EC tunnel has a merchant to sell your stuff and where you can check for things other players are selling. Also buff, and port bots that you pay a small fee for their services. Also casinos for the gambling addicts.
7. OOC is global
8. Veteran AA's are active - lesson of the devoted, Staunch recovery.
1. You start in classic, and can not progress to Kunark until you have required all the steps required to flag for that expansion. For example you need to kill Phinny, CT, Inno, EoV, and a Brood mother as raid mobs. All can be done with approx 2 groups.
2. There is also a solo progression path that involves some essence drops from PoH, PoF, and POS. As well as some ground spawns and finally killing Naggy and Vox. If you play here and do the solo progression but do not have the numbers for Naggy or Vox I am sure most level 60's would be willing to wax them for you. I wax vox daily, sometimes multiply times a day looking for my second rezz staff.
3. Kunark involves getting your VP key before you can even begin the progression task. Once you have your VP key you need to kill VS/Chottal, and then Gore/Sev/Faeydar, and finally Phara Dar to become velious flagged.
4. There is currently a small group of people in Velious. No flagging for Luclin has been done yet, and this server will go all the way to POP and full stop, besides some custom additions maybe later.
I have been on many emu servers and I have to say this server has the best staff I have seen to date. Updates regularly, and bug fixes promptly. There are still some minor issues and things that get adjusted here and there, but nothing that makes people go nuts.
Starting today there is double exp until Sunday, and double loot drops in the custom WC zone. If you decide to try this server out look me up and I'll see if there are a few things I can toss your way to get you started. I outfitted a pallie today in full deepwater. I don't have much left as I give away a lot of stuff everyday. If you let me know your interested in playing here I'll keep stuff in my backpack to toss your way in the downtime.
Great server. If you have a friend or 2 and are all 3 Boxers you'll go far in no time. If you need help people are always friendly and you just need to ask in /ooc.
Rizher - War
Snappy - Cleric
Wigles - Enc
No clue what IBTR is?
My apoligies for posting this in general. I ment to put this under the EQ tab. This is a everquest EMU server that works with the underfoot expansion best.
friendly people suck. tell us about the trannies. RR loves trannies.
Please don't even say that name on this tread. I was on the sleeper. Char name was Sogoto if you know me. He is no where near this server I hope. This place has real GMs, not a guy with a fooked up sence of reality.
/looks in mirror
I can vouch for Sogoto. I played with him briefly on Sleepers.
Tell me something only I would know Sogoto to prove your innocence.
Trannies are an acceptable expression of authenticity. I don't trust anyone that uses exocet or papyrus - very shifty.
Friday good to see you. I have nothing to prove, for the 2 months we were on sleepers you should know that about me Come give this server a try. I usually don't post praise about anything, but got to say this is a fun server, no drama, no bullshit. Which for 90 percent of eq players is what they live for .
Im a newb when it comes to getting this working. What do I need? Titanium edition? I can't find a guide on setting it up!
This server works best with Underfoot edition. Titatium will work as it is what I am using now, and I just got the underfoot edition and will be switching tonight.
Setup you can visit the P1999 and/or eqemulator site as they have a detailed explanation. I can't post those links becasue they are blocked at my work. Gov and gaming sites. Thank goodness some are still not flagged.
I know sogoto (this is erased), good guy. Might check it out :P
I've been on here today, lvl 29 trio shaman - mage - monk
slow, tank, pull I'd gather, but bard is the more common third in that combo.
The mage pet is present to soak a DT. If not I've always wanted an epic mage.
Seems like a fun rule set to mess around on. A couple questions:
- Is there a hybrid exp penalty?
- What era does the spell set come from? Is it progression based as well?
There is no Hybrid penalty.
Spell sets go up to whatever you can get. For instance I am in velious and can give you the level 44 celestial healing (have 1 copy only atm) and a 44 cleric can use it even thouggh they are only in classic.
Lost - If you come to the server let me know and I can hook you up some. I just finished helping Friday get his Kunark flags yesterday. We down Phinny, inno, CT, EoV, and brood mother. Took about 6-7 hrs, but he is in kunark now.
I should rephase my last post.
Anyone coming to this server look up Rizher. I got a few haste belts laying around to get you started and anything else I have in my backpacks at that moment. This is not a hoarding server where you try to sell every last thing you get. People helped me when I started which made for a better leveling experience, and I have helped many in return and will continue.
I am not sure where broodmother comes from. She pops in Lavastorm as a dragon that needs some decent dps to kill.
All the loot tables in Classic are Classic. Golems DT. You need to kill the 3 golums before you kill CT, but you are not required to clear the entire zone. Just what you need to cler to get to the 3 golems.
Druids get sow at 14. Wtf is this shit.
I started here a few days ago and am 51 on 3 characters. It's......fun. The focus on small groups is interesting and a viable means to play. It's still challenging.
Its also progression. I *had* to level in classic until I was able to get through PoHate PoFear PoSky and Kedge (with some help). Not I'm in Kunark trying to catch up to these guys in velious.
Cool, I ink I'll give this a go. My inner ranger needs to come out and get DT'ed.
Whats population like on this guy?
Hit me up on my toons Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. I didnt play much today but Rizher (sogoto) helped me through some custom Kunark flagging.
Im 54 in CoM and I probably have a few pieces of gear I can throw out.
My ultimate goal would be to ditch my boxes and play with other people. I cant stand boxing but its useful for just starting out.
This server officially has my seal of approval. There are a lot of little bugs like you see in most emulated servers, however I've reported like five bugs so far and every one of them has been promptly investigated and fixed.
Captain Tillian in South Qeynos will now accept fangs in 4's
Eejag now spawns outside the lava in Lavastorm
Garanel Rucksif in Unrest has had his loot table cleaned up a bit
the random KoboldNOX's should be gone from SolB
Lizard Blood Potion should now correctly port players to Cazic Thule"
Friday, where you at bro? I got level 40 tonight and made a TFO over here. We've got like 5 non boxers in guild and a handful of two/three boxers. We had a full group in Unrest and Solb for a few hours.
I'll be on tonight. Company Xmas party was last night and had to work the night before. I'd like a static group for all of the zones.
What weapons are those Zaide?
Out of Era!
Definitely a fun server so far. A few random notes about it that weren't covered elsewhere:
- no death penalty
- underfoot style res system
- weapons that have had graphics overhauls use the new models (IE, not classic looks)
- berzerker/BL booth available
- spawn locations/pathing aren't particularly classic, but everything more or less works ok
I didn't notice their levels when they logged. I'm running out for dinner now with my army sitting at 36-37.
I'm on here as Rasza, lvl 19 Monk so far. Pottering around solo as I've never liked boxing. I joined Europa as I'm euro but if anyone's on and wants to group hit me up.
I wish I could roll up on here as well as raid on Test. But I think my girlfriend would Deathtouch me.
I'm looking for some EQ action starting next week once my finals are done. If one of you guys has a box leveled up by then, I would love to join you. I don't care what class/race. I've played it all. Just looking for some nostalgia with nerds. hit me up brosephs
I'll reroll a different box and play.
Kind of want a warrior.
I played here at the beginning (and started a thread on it which I guess got burried) and have a 3 box sk dru cleric team that i kind of just abandoned when the only top guilds were being real assholes towards each other and there wasnt much else to join up with. maybe will log on tonight and see whats up now that theres some RR folks here. I was close to getting to kunark and have a bunch of extra gear for those just starting up. Look for Ripcord / Baffen starting at like 6 or 8 est tonight.
I assume the exp rate and shit are all standard? you just have more out of combat regen?
I've been kind of fiending for some EQ shit~
Just rolled a pal/monk/shaman team, napi/nulo/potted.
I ought to be planes ready this week. The box force is all at 45.
clr/war is boring and far less flexible than mnk/shm, but shd/shm is better than either in most of the recent era.
Still having fun here. The fun is compounded more so when you can drop a box and add other bros.
Farmed some PoSky last night and got some efreeti armor lol. Best looking mage on the server now imo.
I'm still enjoying the server. Zaide pimped my druid box out with a Jade Mace early on and my guildies have been pretty cool with a CoF / RFS for my monk. If anyone is mid to late 30s and looking for a druid hit me up, Rasza (monk) or Tilluin (druid).
Installed and configured to play on this server, hope to be on soon. I got that itch that only EQ can scratch, or maybe I need some medicated cream.
Should have given CT a Moss Covered Twig imo.
this shits annoying to configure, the resolution on W7 is so weird :X
Been years since I've played a solid box emu. Might have to check dis. When do people normally play?
I'm tempted to play but don't want til roll up on a ghost town. How long does it take to go 1-50?
I got to 50 with 2 days /played over the course of a week. I wasn't grinding. Drops are more frequent, and named always spawn. So gearing up is rather easy. There are not a lot of people online at any given time, but enough to find grps when you want one. Progression is twofold, you can raid, and open the xpacs, or you can solo and open the xpacs, both play styles are equally valid.
Edit: just FYI, names don't always spawn by the time you hit sol b/l guk. I'm not sure what kunark is like.
I might get down I'm this then, I'm a mega casual lately and likely just going to be a 3box team but if you ever catch a fifey or ephed online. That's me and give me free gear.
Double post but are you alexzander from luclin/Los?
good place for a megacasual imo
i'm logging in my lowbie paladin right now, gonna slaughter some gnolls in blackburrow.
Im 55 on my monk / shaman / mage. Been pretty casual. My guild wants me to be super velious but I'm going through shit super casual.
Hell I spent all last night in PoSky for no reason other than to get efreeti armor for my mage so he looks cool.
No, I'm Alexzander from Prexus, was in Stasis and later Unity.
If any of the new peeps need help, hit me up. Best to send tells to Alexzia, I pay attention to her chat more than the other two boxes.
As best as I know, it's just Friday and I. I'm waaaaaay out of the IB loop though, I haven't regularly played with IB since pre-Kunark.
Nah no IB group. Your best best is to roll with The Faceless Order there, lost of RR there and lower lvl ppl to chat with
Grats. Is camping the cloak similar to how it worked on p1999?
There aren't mercenaries right? I'm trying to decide on a 3box combo that works up to velious/pop.
Normally I always want a SK/SHM but figure i'll mix it up this time lol
Gonna get this bitch configured tonight after work!
I read on the first page that beastlords are available as well right? I think i'll try building a team around one since i haven't really played one before
BL/Ench/Dru seems like it would be pretty boss
boxing BST is terrible b/c they have so many active skills and they have a lot of melee push so you have to keep tabbing over to move them and push a horde of buttons to do good dps. Less if they're tanking, but they're not fantastic tanks.
beastlord would be my primary focus in that comp so i'm not too worried about that
last question, are auras available as well?

I dont know about aura's
But I've seen a Druid / BST duo wreck most things.
haha yeah, i've had a slow day at work so i've been making a list of what that duo + an enchanter should be able to do. It looks really, really solid. Specially once kunark opens up.
How are rare/named mob spawns for smaller shit like Lower Guk and what not? are they increased as well? I don't really see any "features" listed on their forums. For example; if i want to camp an SMR for shits and giggles, is it all on a half hour respawn, with a low chance of the arch mage actually spawning like live, or is it a higher chance/faster spawn kind of thing?
edit: just realized they had an info page, i've only been on their forums haha

thats pretty nuts.. that comp just got even better then!
I'm excited to leave work in 45 minutes lol
War and Zerker are probably your best dps if used right. Once below 30 health they enrage and everything is a crippling blow. You live on the edge trying to stay below 30 and not dieing.
Nice server feature that I love. I play a war/Clr/Enc and I don't even bother charming a pet for dps. War is pushing 450+ DPS.
with what gear? that sounds super high for ~kunarkish i'd assume? (enchanter buffs are implied)
edit: oh i misread that the first time, you're staying below 30% to always land CBs lol, thats still pretty sick

Hes also dual wielding SoD's he won from the kunark casino. So definitely not the norm.
Should enact a policy for era specific gear for progression. Its what Im currently doing and having fun.
Slow day at work so I was xping in HS earlier. Hope I logged out in a safe enough spot in west wing so I dont get raped when I login from home.
