House of Thule (EQs latest expansion)

As a lot of you may know, EQ just launched its 17th expansion called House of Thule. Its based around Plane of Fear and Cazic Thule is back. The expansion is awesome. It brings back an old school feel.

This expansion has been impressive so far. Its the least buggiest expansion ive seen launch since ive been playing the game.

Im not just saying this because I still play EQ - But to me, HoT is the best expansion EQ has ever produced. The tasks are rewarding, spells drop aplenty. The zones are huge and very very well done.

Its the first time in quite a while that ive felt like actually exploring the zones. The scenery is actually awesome for EQs standards. There is a shit ton of lore in this expansion. The MOBS arent overly powerful. Its a nice relaxed type of atmosphere and I actually wanna do tasks again. They arent like pulling teeth anymore. They brought the fun back to the group game. Its not balls out hard either...its just right.

The group gear from the end zone is 1500+ H/M/E stuff.

The end zone is AWESOME. It reminds me of Camelot. Knights riding around on horse back and stuff. There is a dungeon with a dragon guarding the castles gold. EQ brought the sexyness back with a huge medieval theme here.

Super super expansion. I recommend any of you come back and give it a look.

Lol, have you raided HoT yet? I haven't been in the end zone yet, so can't comment on it yet, but I like what I've seen so far. When I get some time off I'll go explore the rest.

Of course I have. Im in the #2 guild on my server. We have been doing that Tick Toc raid.

However, my entire post was about the group game =)

That Tick Tock raid is driving me bonkers. I don't get it lol. We aren't a top guild though, we just felt like trying it for shits and giggles. We're still halfway through UF.

I wish I could play. I'm too broke to pay for new expansion or reactivate Merlu. LIfe sucks. LOL

Hell tbh, I just want to log in and decorate a house!
