Genuine question, my finger is hovering over the resume button. I really want to say hi to some really good friends, but I don't want to spend the 12$ just to play for a week and become bored with it again.

Last time I logged in was several months, maybe six. And want to know what's changed.

All I did last time is collect Dark Isle Trophies. :/

Thanks!

They are making a new playable race, the gear knights I believe for next patch, could be kinda cool.

Think they introduced the tailoring since you last left too, so you can make all your good armor with majors/epics look like any type of armor you want. Ive used it a few times it is very useful.

Depends on your level, if you have just yourself and are low level, I believe Olthoi arcade is still one of the better places. If you have weapon rares and someone to debuff for you, or you are above level 50, you can hunt Fiuns for a faster grind till about 110. Then it is off to 110 eaters till level 140 then Olthoi Rippers for the rest, that is if you are just trying to get levels fast I believe that is the best way to go.

lvl 43 atm grinding the 40+ Tusker isle dungeon in a hooded Faran robe and vendor gloves. it's pretty much easy mode with spec bow spec meleeD. it's just hard to believe after all these years that's the best place for max solo exp

edit: if the Olthoi arcade is the place with the Mutilators at the bottom, i remember that well. made a freaking fortune in that place off the salvage and majors

edit2: bah.. i tried the Olthois because i wanted to get the armor and drop this damned robe, but i couldn't get the health down on the Matrons. i pick up Life @ 45 and i'll try again

Should do the newbie Hub? I did that for a toon on FF when I first returned. Its pretty fun and gets you leveled up quick, plus I get to do all the old school quests I never did.

I forgot about that quest tusker kill quest out of Lin, you kill 500 Tusker Guards I believe and it gives you 20 million xp, that is one of the best things for someone between lvl 40-50 since you have to be like lvl 35-40 to do it. The hub is also a good choice too if you are just starting out a new toon from scratch. happy

I meant it is just easier to go to the Tusker Barracks since it is an entire dungeon of just tusker guards, it would take a lot less time than BSD which doesnt have anywhere near as many in the dungeon.
