To WoW or to EQ, that tis the question!

Ok in a couple of more months I am going to be done with my book, it should be in production by then which will give me even more free time then I already have. So now I have to feed my ravenous mmorpg needs again. I could return to EQ where I am as much hated as I am loved after having spent 5 years as a guild leader on Solusek Ro (Now Bristlebane server) and return to my level 66 shaman who is mostly naked except the no drop raid gear she has on. OR

I can head to Lothar server on Wow where my nephew runs the largest guild on the server and I have a newly made level 11 Undead priest there.

So on either game I am surrounded by old friends and family and on either game I am basically gimp and have to bust my ass to catch up. On one game I am nobody special and can likely enjoy playing the actual game instead of being the leader who I personally know sacrifices entertainment for the sake of others, on the other game I have about 200 people who love me and the rest of the server likes to call me things like 'Yelling bitch' or 'Nazi'. Sadly it has boiled down to this for me....

Everquest - Mucho load times, lot of raid wiping
Wow- No loading, quick n easy corpse recovery and WOWIE, very little lag!


Damn, wow is tilting the scales... I guess Ill have to play a little of both.

I'd personally go with WoW, but Since we were both pretty hardcore EQ players, this game is a breeze. I maxed out shortly after 6 months, and once there, you resort to PvP for most end game. I quit it a while back because it became boring to me, PvP is a sad result for end game content in my opinion

AAH! That EQ game!!! Both of my brothers including his wife are both addicted to that game. Personally i don't play computer games so i don't know what the insanity is about. Anyway, do you really write books? I thought you were being sarcastic on Mike's web logs...hmm, fooled me.

Dero - Sounds cool to me, Im sure I can get you into my nephews sweet guild. Its called Eternal Soldiers on Lothar. In about a month I will likely be on there, as soon as I buy the damn account Ive been playing on from a friend.

dan - no matter where I go Ill want you there. I dont think an mmorpg will ever be the same for me without you around.

tangled - Yeah EQ is horrible addictive. Ive personally never been addicted to heroin but Id say the power of the two are quite close. Dan and I have seen probably a million times someone on EQ going 'Shit dudes I got to go, Ive been on EQ for 3 days straight now. I need to eat and shower and sleep a couple hours and Ill be back'.
A few minutes later you might see 'Ah fuck it Im back, Ill sleep and eat and clean myself tomorrow'
Its ugly. And yea, I really write books! Amazing aint it. Well it is to me still :D
