Show Me the Moon

Thousands of characters have found their way to Luclin this week with the opening of the Shadows of Luclin expansion on the Fippy Darkpaw server.

I think back to January when a dev (I forget who it was atm) made the comment that they're particularly interested in seeing how long players will vote 'no' to unlock Luclin. There's always been some talk that "EQ was best before Luclin" but I've always suspected those real nostalgia-seekers were somewhat of a minority. I also expect that this vote probably passed by another landslide, but that's just an educated guess.

I'm pretty certain the nostalgics have moved on from the TLPs. I could be wrong - let me know if I am. But I think Luclin came at a time when many of us were quite ready for it. And I'm not just talking about the end-game raiders. I know many casual players who were just itching for Luclin too.

Put simply, I just don't believe that EQ's hay-day was Classic, Kunark, and Velious. Personally I'm a big fan of Luclin and PoP. I know others who are believers in GoD, and others who vote their favorite expansion as one of the later expacs. But I will say this: I could not bear another month of an AA-less game. Even if there had been AAs in Velious I don't think I could stomache grinding the light blues to get them. And not mention the content in Luclin, while some may feel is far-fetched in terms of lore, is actually quite fascinating and in-depth.

So, take me to the moon, Captain SOE. I'm ready for it, and I'm ecstatic that it's here. This, to me, is when EQ really starts.

I was always a huge fan of Luclin and PoP as well =-D. Loving it!Alinak at 11/28/2011 01:51 PM
I'm a fan of the Classic-Luclin Era, and the lvl70 cap era pre-PoR myself. Locking one of the TLP servers in at luclin and allowing free xfers off of it to the other TLP server seems like a good solution to me to bridge the gap bettwen the casual and nostalgic crowd vs the hardcore raiding crowd. 30 hour poopsocking isnt something I have time for these days, but experiencing the old EQ raiding content is something i'm interested in - I'm sure I'm not alone in this.Nergal at 12/15/2011 11:30 PM
