Well the Holidays are finally over and now its time to focus back on the important things in life…EVERQUEST 2!!!!!!!!

I have been tinkering around with my 3 main toons and getting them leveled and tradeskilled up, its been a long and sometimes boring process. I am more of a solo player vs the group aspect of the game, dont get me wrong i love the occasional group or raid to get the blood flowing, but 98% of the time i am solo. I feel that being solo i can work at my own pace, if i want to stare at a mob and work out some strategy before jumping in i can, in a group thats not so easy, espically if you have someone like i use to be they see a mob and RUN straight for it and pull everything in site…hehe (done that one too many time) !!

But since the New Year is here i have taken a break from my older toons and made room for a new toon on the same old server but in a different new but old guild for me, i know that sounds confusing, so i’ll explain.

See i was once part of the Looony Toons guild in Crushbone , one of the founding fathers so to speak, well after sometime i was growing boried with the role of a leader and wanted to be lead, had alot of things going on in my RL that was affecting my EQ2 life, so i made a decision to step down and leave the guild to look for a more raiding guild, at the time all i wanted to do was raid and get the uber gear and become a ledgend.

Yes, i made a new home and fell in love with my guildies who have been the best friends a person could ask for in game and out of game. i still felt like i have had a peice missing from me, so on Monday i made a deciosion to create a new toon and tag him back into the old guild that i came from and work with them for a while. Now for anyone who is in the guild i am in now, dont worry – Chubby, Cinder, Kuzab and the other 2 alts are not leaving the guild, i just needed a change of pace and visit some old friends for a while, i will still be on my older toons and getting them where they need to be but i will also be working on this new toon and guild to help get them to GL 90. Just spreading the love guys !!

I have been very impressed with Looony Toons the last couple nights, last night they had over 20 players on for a majority of the night, it was great i havent seen that in a guild in a long long time and felt proud that i was at one point in my life that i helped create this guild, they have done so much ove the last couple years and have built the guild into a strong force for the citizens of Norrath. Also i didn’t releize this till last night that i created and join this new / old guild on the guilds Anniversay, so ironically one of the Founding Fathers returns on the night that the guild was origionally created serveral years ago!! 🙂

Anyways, alot is going on and i am here to partake in the fun festivities and get a new toon off the ground and into a raiding guild as this is what they have developed into again another ironic thing i have found, i left to goto a raiding guild that fell from raiding to create a new toon to go to my old guild who is now Raiding!! Lost yet!!

So the next post i have with my update progress should not be so confusing, the new toon is a ShadowKnight, since i just love the pure raw abilities of the SK class,and he is sitting at lvl 16 with about 12 AA’s, i am in the process of becoming a citizen of Freeport as i feel that Neirek is just too confusing to be able to raise a new toon. So if your on Crushbone look for Chubbers the Kerra SK, i’m sure you’ll see me around, hit me up for a PUG or just to chat.

Until next time, Happy Hunting in Norrath or where ever you call home!!!

Well i’ve been very busy recently getting my alts leveled up so i can take them to the lands that their brothers and sisters have been too.

These alts have heard many tales from their kins, and have been eagerly awaiting their time to journey to this distant and past lands to become ledgens of their own time and bask in the forgot hordes of treasure that have been long forgotten.

Kuzab my pally has finally had some QT time from me in the recent weeks.

He is currently sitting at level 62 adventurer and lv 54 tailorer, the goal is to have him maxed out in both before the release of the next expansion, Since tomarrow is christmas Eve and i am off till monday, i will be giving him some long over due attention. Normally i start off with the adventure side of things and move over the artisan side once i become boried. Kuzab was the first toon i created on Launch day of Eq2, actully if you remember back when Eq2 was launched that if you preordered the game you had a few extra days before the retail side launched so you was able to get ahead of the other, and i had at that time taken advantage of this, however i grew boried with my pally as it wasnt what i was looking for at the time and instead of deleting him i just pushed him to the back burner. about after 2 months on Kuzab i created my Zerker Chubbylilbuddy who became my main too for the next 6.5 years.

Chubbylilbuddy is currently sitting at lvl 83 in adventure status and is already maxed out in crafting (Alchemist). I still love logging into Chubby and going out and basjing everything i see, its a great way to releive your stress levels after a long day of working.  I am hoping with these holiday breaks i can get Chubby completely maxed out by end of year, its going to take alot of time and blood (not mine or chubbys) to get him there.

Cinderbella – this was the 3rd toon i created and about a year ago became my main toon – this is my SK and i completely fell in love with her and her ability to create so much damage, just fricking awesome!! She is maxed out in her adventure at 90 and is stilling pretty at 70 for a sage, i would love to have her completely maxed out by end of year, along with her grandmaster crafting acheived as well.

I also have 3 other toons that are still low levels and there is no way i would be able to get them to 90 by launch of the expansion, but i will give it a try, a fury, warlock and a gaurdian walks into a bar….Umm i mean those are what the other 3 toons that are low level are.

Now i have been looking to maybe delete one of these toon when the expansion comes out so i can try the new vampire race but i am still unsure, i may also just purchase another toon slot thru the Station Store but as i mentioned not 100% sure at this time.

So this is what i have been up to since last update, and will or should have another update in a day or two.  If you ever find yourself on Crushbone, please look any of my toons up that i have mentioned, get a group going and embark on an epic journey of fame and fortune, this is how ledgens are born, this is where the stories of or lore are made from, this is how we become the new hero’s of out time, and to have other generations speak of our ventures, this is how we save Norrath and bring it back to its once Glorious time.

Until then, Happy Hunting throught Norrath or where ever you call home!!

~Chubby~

Happy Holiday to you and have a Happy New Year as well.


Well as most of you may have noticed i haven’t been posting and on one of my last post i mentioned that i have been having some personal real life issues going on. Well i am still in the process of getting a divorce and have been very depressed as of lately, and haven’t wanted to write let alone play anything to write about, so i have decided to keep my sanity, that i need to do something that i love to do and that would be playing video games and  to write about them. So once again i am here to state that i am back for now, to continue on with my adventures and let the worlds know about them.

I renewed my Eq2 subscription last night, it was inactive for the last 25 days and really didnt feel like renewing or had the money to at the time. So last night i balanced the check book and had some extra money to play with, so instead of heading the closest bar in hopes that they had cheap beer and Karaoke going on, i decided to renew Eq2….at least i can save some money this way!!

So there i was logged into my Level 90 ShadowKnight, didnt know what i wanted to do, checked the broker nothing, i forgot i haven’t played in some time, so i continued to see what i was in need of and noticed that she was still level 62 sage. So immediatly i went to the crafting stations and began my grind to 90, i ended up going up to level 65 Sage last night, not bad for a couple hours of play time. I plan on getting back into the grind, by sometime next week i should be at level 90 sage if i keep at it, after that i plan on getting Chubby up to 90 in adventures. I know i have said this before and before again but this time i am going to git’R Done, once i have completed those 2 task i will have 2 toons that are 90 in both Trade and adventure, and can begin on working on their armor for raids, and lower shard runs.

So you should be seeing alot more post from me since i have a little time on my hands, also check out nomadic gamers blog they have several writers including myself and talk about all sorts of MMO’s, everything from Eve, Eq2, Vangard to event he free MMO’s DDO and Wizard 101, check them out and give them a chance, i’m sure you’ll be back for more!!

Until next time, Happy Hunting in Norrath!!

“Well hello there Travelers, I have come from the distant lands to share a story of fame and wealth!!!!”

Yeah ok enough of the drama we have enough going on without it, what i am trying to get around to say is yes its that time of year again, YAJEE 200 is in full swing for Knights of Marr guild members.

What is the Yajee 200???

Well Yajee is one of the guild leaders of Knights of Marr on the crushbone server of Everquest 2, and 200 is the number of writs that needs to be completed in order to win the contest, yes 200 writs, first person to reach 200 writs will be rewarded 40 Plat…..woooohooooo.

This contest is great last years winner was Corliss 

 

Corliss

 

The contest is only open to members of KOM only, and the fun has already begun, KOM hit level 81 last night due to the contest, and i can say that Chubby knocked out 29 writs last night alone and 10 the night before, so he is up to 39 writs of the 200.

EQ2_000012 EQ2_000013 EQ2_000015 EQ2_000014 EQ2_000016 EQ2_000010

Also Chubby has moved in his tradeskill level and is now a level 85 Alchemist, damn  about time i know Cinderbella is in need of some combat arts and potions.

 

Also in the news of KOM Twixt, Mya or what ever alt she is going by these days is re-decorating the guild hall for KOM with some of the latest additions of the expansions. So lets give her a big warm round of cheer for working hard at making our guild hall look like that home away from home!!

Ahh what the hell, we will just make this Knights of Marr guild post..lol

Also in the exciting news of KOM, i want to send a congrats out to Shadowblades, aka Tastopherie (something like that) he has been promoted to guild leader, this position is shared by Yajee, Healyou, &  Knebiter. Sorry if i missed anyone else i am drawing a blank. but anyways Good luck with the added pressure, stress, and all the enjoyments of decision making when it comes to leadership, i should know i was one of the leaders of Loooney Toons in Eq2 and Heart of the Black Dragon in Eq2 and Eq1. anyways congrats and good luck.

So i finally did battlegrounds the other night, as i had no clue as to what i was doing i was jus running around aimlessly killing anything i saw move, if you were a team-mate…ooooopsie……my bad!!!  🙂

Not a bad concept, taking some of the game features of a First person shooter and develop them into a MMO, like Hold Territory Towers, capture the flag, Hold the Relic and so on. As these idea are not fresh and new, but just redesigned into a different format of gaming. From my understanding you can gain or be rewarded different types of Armor or armor sets, i have yet to see those, except for the ones that Harlow made me for toughness, War-painted armor. but as a reward for participating in the tournaments you gain yet another type of coin to collect and use to purchase new items. Well i have 3 so far as i did 3 of these games, i can see this being a filler when you are bored with the everyday grind of the game or just don’t feel like crafting, lest just see how long SOE will keep it around and what they have in store for this, as we have seen LON looks like its here to stay, so can they do the same with Battlegrounds??? Only time will tell.EQ2_000000

So with the new expansion out and most players have been playing since mid Feb. 2010, tell me what you think of the expansion, the changes, the additions, send your likes and dislikes. This is your chance to express your opinion on the latest SOE EQ2 Expansion.

With all that said and until next time……………………………………………………………….

Happy Hunting in Norrath

Well last night was Thursday and when i went to log in there was an update, it said 40 minutes for it to update, well no problem i figured that i could do a few things that needed to be done, check email, look at forums, check facebook….yeah well that took about 15 min and i still had another 30 min to go. I found myself sitting on the couch watching women’s figure skating , ok now see the problem here, i am a 36 year old overweight man sitting on the couch watching these twigs skate around the rink doing gymnastics, that’s not the bad part, the bad part was that i was glued to the TV it was like a train wreck , you know you should watch it but you cant help yourself. Overall it wasn’t that bad, wish the 2 US skaters would of placed but all-n-all it was entertaining. After i peeled my eyes off the TV i saw my patch was done i click "PLAY" and received an error, so i had to close out and restart Eq2, now when i did this i thought i would go to the log in watch it scan real quick and let me log back in..well boy was i wrong there was another update, for some reason the first update forgot to give my computer some files…ahhhh another 25 min…oh well back to Figure Skating. After what seemed like the longest hour and half, i was able to log in and get moving on things i wanted to accomplish, but now i was no longer in the mood to play, i found myself just wondering from Guild hall to Sundering Frontier to Kerra Island. I was able to complete 3 quest, gain some loot, my broker made 8 plat, so it was somewhat productive. after the turn in on the 3 quest i logged and headed to bed. I was disappointed in the update that occurred causing me not to get in when i wanted then causing me to become preoccupied.

Friday night is going to be different, i am going to get a lot of things done , get my tradeskills up on Cinder, maybe even log chubby in get him past the 81 marker and get the Alchemist tradeskill to max 90…who knows what the night and early morning hours will bring me…hopefully Fame and fortune…well if not fame please let it be Fortune and not a damn goblin asking me to play da lottery.

Well may all your dreams come true, and those coin purses get full too!!!!!!! Untill Next time, Happy Hunting in Norrath!!!!!!!!

Well the new expansion is now 1weeks old for some of us and just a few days old for others, I however was able to spend the last week and half enjoying the new areas and joys of the new expansion.EQ2_0000000

 

 

 

 

 

 

I think the new content is great, i have leveled Chubby to 81 and Cinderbella up to 83 i have done so many quest in this new area and still have tons more to work on.

I was not that happy about the reset of the AA points and having to remember what everything was or look up what the new ones were. So with that being said Over all so far i give the new expansion 8 out 10 stars in my book.

 EQ2_000071

I will have more as we move along in the expansion, as for now i am enjoying the new content, leveling my toons along the way and trying to make some Mad loot in the process.

Until next time, Happy Hunting in Norrath!!!!

Well last night was a really fun night, after prying myself from the TV while i sat at my computer desk, (the only bad part of having the Computer in the living room) I was asked i if i wanted to tank Chelsith to help Kasala on her last past of her Fabled Epic, OF COURSE I DO…hehe

So we headed to Chelsith and started to kill the Fishmen, it was really fun we had a great and strong group i only lost aggro a few times but managed to recover within 2 seconds. Of course we went the wrong way and came to a barricade / force field so we had to clear just about the entire zone or at least most of the named bosses in order to lower the force field. This was really fun, we gained alot of AA XP, i know i started this zone with 6% AA and when it was over i was at 98% and was hoping for 10 more kills to get the AA point but hey thats what tonight is for, Hehe.

i think i am going to start and forming groups and doing the zones that we have not been to yet, i know there is alot of them and we are missing out on alot and some good loot.

Over all this zone went smooth and we only time a few hundred times because of the floating bubbles…Curse you damn bubbles.lol Again i really liked this zone and was able to really see what chubby was able to handle, i have to check my ACT Pharse and see what the DPS in the Zone was on average , this is something i have been wanting to track due to alot of the Brigrades in CRA ask what you average DPS is and honestly i have no clue what Chubbys or any of my alts are i really never had or wanted to track it to find out.

Tonight i want to try and get a shard run in if possible, i know i am going to have a hard time getting on tonight due to the wife having stuff for me to do, she has her own business on the side, doing graphic designs and this big job she has is now done printing and needs me to help her put it together manually, Ahhhhhhh All i know is i need to get her done by Saturday afternoon, because thats when i head to Corliss / Thapharsydes houde for our LAN party…..Wooohooooo. We have already discussed it with the guild we are going to run shard runs all day starting at 4pm EST and untill 6am EST or untill we pass out i just know alot of caffine and nicotine will be in the air and i gota stock up on 5hr energy shots for saturday lol.

Well if any one is around on crushbone, shoot me a tell to chat or even grp up i think it would be fun.

Oh Yeah i almost forgot Kasala completed her Fabled Epic Weapon quest..Contrats Kasala it was a pleasure being a part of that journey for you.

Until Next time Happy Hunting in Norrath!!!!
