Default UI-101 refresher course?

Ok, so yeah...I've downloaded the game again and took a quick peek before work this morning.

Is there a User Interface refresher website somewhere? I forgot how clunky it was and there seems to be a bunch of new windows that I don't remember seeing (Voice being one of them).

I did manage to setup my numpad for moving(yay being a lefty mouse user!).

I'm not really interested in doing skins and crap like that, I just need to remember how to do the crap I used to do instinctively, mostly by keyboard shortcuts.

Also, do people still tend to play in 1st person view?

1st person view was always iffy with my vision and going 3rd person with camera above in WoW is pretty much ideal for me. Have they improved the camera functions in EQ?

Yeah, nm, I'm figuring things out and I doubt I'll be playing much. Even trying 3rd person gives me to high of a hurl factor even just running around PoK.

I use a combination of 3rd person and 1st person myself. Depends on the zone and situation. When raiding, I use 3rd person mostly.. when grouping or solo/molo'ing.. I use first person.

Well, I've been messing around a little bit just running around PoK andthe hurl factor isn't quite as bad as when I first tried it again.

I thought I'd look and see if SOE would be able to transfer the guild leadership over to me since Tsurwolf hasn't been on since 04/02/08 and the only other person who had logged in from the guild was back in Jan of 2010. No dice.

I understand that you are the only active officer left in the guild, Sunrunners, and you would like the guild leadership to be transferred to you. I was more than happy to look into this for you today. Unfortunately, the only way that you will be able to gain the guild leadership, is to get into contact with the current guild leader, who will need to transfer the leadership to you, or you will need to leave the guild and recreate it with a new name. I'm terribly sorry for any inconveniences this may cause you and I wish you the best of luck!
So another nail in the coffin of me coming back. I might start up a newb char on another server just to play around a bit and get used to the mechanics again...dunno.

Mostly I'm killing time until the next WoW xpac comes out...but I'm not even all that excited for it.

Diablo 3 held my interest for a couple of weeks but not enough variety for a game which you basically play 4 short acts over and over again.

Ok, looks like I'm sucked in for a bit. Made a secondary account, silvered it and bought a couple classes. So, even though I don't have full control in the guild, I can make all my alts Officers.

So if ya see a Sunrunner(or two) running around, it's most likely me messing around.

Rawr, got ahold of TBBW and I'm now the leader of Sunrunners. Yay?

That doesn't mean anything to me in the context of my EQ memories (my last login was in 2005). Did they change the character creation system?

Since EQ went free to play, there are 3 levels of service. Bronze, Silver and Gold.

Bronze you're limited to things like, 4 races and 4 classes, 2 char per server, 4 bag slots, 100 gold per level max.

For 5 bucks you can upgrade the account to Silver (all the old existing accounts were grandfathered to this level) which bumps up to 4 chars per server, 6 bag slots, 500 gold per level max, 4 races and 4 classes. You can purchase additional races/classes/char slots and various other things for a small fee and still not require a monthly subscription

Of course the grandfathered accounts have less limits. If the char had more than the 500 gold per level on them, then they still get to keep it. All classes/races are avail to them. They also get to keep any additional chars over 4 if they have them.

Gold access is the monthly subscription which gives full access.

So brand new accounts start off at Bronze and you can pay for various upgrades even if you don't want the whole kit.

For me, I bought $25 in SC (Station Cash) which gives 2500 SC

Upgrade to Silver = 500 SC ($5)
Bought the Halfer Race = 300 SC ($3)
Bought Shadow Knight class = 750 SC ($7.50)
Bought Ranger class = 750 SC ($7.50)

Can't remember off hand what the 4 free classes/races are. I do remember the following:

Human/Gnome for races

Warrior/Cleric/Wizard for classes...I think Pally might have been the 4th but not sure.


When SoE finally gets the ability to transfer SC between accounts working, I might fill out my second account more. My main account has a bunch of SC because I stupidly bought the lifetime subscription to DCUO which then went F2P as well.

Oddly enough I was just thinking about Sunrunners today while driving home.

Tsurwolf popped on the other night, dunno if he'll be back or not.

I'm levelling a gnome SK (Zalm Zalabim) and have made it to 35 fairly quickly. I gotta admit, I think I have the bug again. I'm basically working the Hero's Journey quests and enjoying it. Might wind up 2boxing him with my druid rather than the merc when he gets to around 45/46.
