I’ve just updated my Everquest install, logged in, and realised that the Fippy Darkpaw server doesn’t go live until the 15th of February. So much for 11 days on FD, it’s now down to six.
Still, I’m going to give it a go, but because of the limited amount of time, won’t be creating thousands of alts to try and work out the best character for me.
What I’m going to do, however, is give you that job.
I’d like you to make some suggestions on what kind of character you think I should create. What class/race combination and starting zone do you think would work based on the following criteria?
- The Fippy progression server will not have any expansion content available, I expect that any races or classes not in the original game will not be available at the server launch. By the same token, it is unlikely that the mercenary system won’t be available either.
- I tend to solo. I’m not averse to grouping but have often found my timezone (GMT +9:30) doesn’t help in finding players. Tipa assures me that the server should be busy during my timezone, but I’d still like to be able to solo in case I find myself alone.
Once the server goes live, I’ll create the character and spend as much time as I’m able, and I’ll give you a running blogetary of my progress.
I’d love to hear your suggestions. Can you leave them in the comments below, or on Twitter at @Stropp.
