.. All racial XP penalties have been removed from EQ now.

The only race which recieves an XP bonus are halflings (5%). The only classes which receive an xp bonus are warriors (10%) and rogues (9%). (so Halfling warriors/rogues get 15%/14%). These XP bonuses appy to XP for leveling, but NOT AA xp.

the XP penalties were removed when TSS was released (patch notes).

- Race based experience penalties have been removed.

I would Say WAR because there is no requirment to int or wiz as in SK or Shammy. Zerks/beasties are kool but im not savy on there requirments though i am certain beasties need wiz too for spells. The war utilizes the troll's best stats and even has a regen mod. Trolls take longer but make sweet tanks in the long run. It is nice when you are fighting several mobs and your life bar actually is going up instead of down.

Right, not sure if I'll get any sort of answer in due time, but here goes...

Got a 25 shaman duoing with a 25 shadow knight (both trolls)... Any suggestions on where to level?

Oh, the shadow knight also only has the original EQ and Kunark, so that does narrow things down a bit...

Ya I started a troll war and was in Mars Seru for awhile and is good with a group if you want to solo with out alot of downtime go to Netherbian lair and kill trog's for awhile. Then when you hit 30 I would move over to Overthere. But if you get a good group go to Gunthak and kill critters on the island. But don't die and make sure you stay away from the never ending trains from the cave, but is really good xp.

He did say he didn't have Luclin.

I'm sure by now this whole situation is remedied but if anybody is looking for a good place to hunt at these levels pre-Luclin then Upper Guk is a very good place for exp. The area in the back near the land entrance to Lower Guk is well stocked with dark blues. They give a hefty amount of exp too.

Like I said in the froglok section, Neriak is a much better town than Grobb EVER was. Moving the trolls there was a good thing for them, since it was hard to raise trolls inside Innothule. They couldn't swim, they couldn't see, everything hated them, and Grobb was the poorest excuse for a town in the game (next to Oggok). Now they start in the big, orderly, and fully-stocked Neriak which spans three zones, and has a newbie ground which is actualy possible to play on. Leave innothule to the frogloks, they turned Grobb into Gukta, and it's much more orderly and well stocked than Grobb was. Also, the froglok's swimming, underwater breathing, and ultravision makes them much more adept at hunting in Innothule. Also most things don't attack them on sight (except kobolds), making it much easier to level. (by welll-stocked I mean good merchants and all tradeskill town appliances).

Okay first off, whoever didn't like the simplicity of Grobb as a city is a dolt. It had everything you could ever need as a Shadowknight, Warrior, Shaman, Beastlord, Berserker, whatever, for just plain fighting. Shamans would have to do some runs between oggok and grobb as I believe, which wasn't too much of a problem, I don't know what they are stuck doing now, probably some lame trash like Oggok>Feerott>PoK>Nektulos>NeriakA and than back again. Having to use PoK all day is so very lame, especially with the wonderful zone times and overall lag in that worthless zone. PoK truely ruined part of Everquest. Got a bunch of level 65 noobs who don't know where east commons is cause it ain't a PoK stone. It is really pathetic.

Anyways, not to be getting too off topic now, Grobb had everything that I, a Troll Shadowknight, WOULD EVER NEED, and they gave the frogloks it. All frogs should die naturally, and this just increases the reasoning for it. Please explain to me how a stupid little half pint frog does 300 damage with his bare hands by the way. This is mostly attributed to the grand idiocy that is SoE. Oh, instead of getting off our lazy butts and making a neat frog city, lets give them Grobb, imo the best city there ever was for getting supplies and banking done quick. Oh, while we at it, lets do something to cover up our lack of any good AI and just make all monsters do 5 x normal damage. Woot, we are real pros at this game making stuff!

Naturally Grobb isn't going to support your tradeskilling, Oggok covered some, and for those going all out, they can get off their butts and travel to Neriak and do it all there. Which is now by the way, even more joyously cramped into a tiny space than before. This probably isn't going to change, due to SoE not wanting to do the work that should have been originally done, nor attribute their own amazing lack of intelligence. But hey, I got a great idea, lets do more wonderful expansions to easily surpass Omens of War. I got some wonderful ideas for you sports fans!

Kobolds become a playable race, Take over Erudin and Paineel (So the poor little evil kobolds have somewhere to go), all Erudites forced to move to Qeynos.

Gnolls become a playable race(I support this idea actually), Take over Qeynos and that Nature zone (whatever its called, the land of druids/rangers that must die to me), all Erudites and Qeynosians must go to Freeport.

Orcs become a playable race, Take over Freeport, force all Erudites, Qeynosians, and Freeportians to move to Halas.

For some strange reason, a band of 3 Wooly Mammoths all level 80 come into existance, and take over Halas so NO ONE can use it, forcing all Halasians, Erudites, Qeynosians, Freeportians, to move to Kelethin. We could call this "The 3 expansion", with the main feature being Halas being captured.

Solusek Ro becomes furious, and turns Faydwer into a land of lava and death, forcing all Dwarves, Gnomes, Erudites, Half Elves, Humans, Wood Elves, High Elves, and Barbarians to move to Rivervale and Highpass Hold. We could call this the "SoE doesn't know what it is doing expansion"

Oh, but than the Goblins use their mighty level 30 powers to take over Misty Thicket and Rivervale, forcing everyone to move into Cat city. We could call this the "Learn the stupid cat city already expansion" (I really despise that city)

And than, through some force of magic, or sheer will, Verant accidentally deletes Shar Vahl, and all the races besides a select few can only find refuge in the Plane of Knowledge. We could call this the "Get T1 and a 256 mb video card or die" expansion.

But meanwhile, back in the Feerott, the dark level 7 to 38 undead are scheming a dark plot to overthrow Oggok! Bouncer Fug falls to the swarm of 10 decaying skeletons! The Guildmasters cannot handle the hordes of level 13 zombies! The spectres sit back, smiling, as the uber powers of these undead is enough to thwart Oggok for good, and merely kill the ogres that try to escape, leaving enough to crap up Neriak later. Cracked staffs in hand, or at least what is left of their hands, the undead have no problem capturing the city of Oggok within minutes. ( I actually thoroughly support the idea of a race of Skeletons or something like them ) The ogres are forced to flee to Neriak, and Shamans make a fortune in shrink potions!


Okay, I got rather off topic with this, but my main point is, making 2 cities work for 3 races is a really stupid idea decided on by a stupid group of people. They never did this before, Gnomes had Akanon, Dwarves had Kaladim, Halflings had Rivervale, Halfelves and humans had Qeynos and Freeport, Erudites had Erudin and than Paineel, Barbarians had Halas, Wood Elves had Kelethin, High Elves had Felwithe, Vah Shir had Shar Vahl, Iksar had Cabilis, Dark Elves had Neriak, Trolls had Grobb, Ogres had Oggok. What force possessed them to have that big of lapse in judgement? I mean even the stupid npc monsters usually have their own cities, although they kinda screwed the runnyeye goblins and splitpaw gnolls over, which is no surprise here. Why did they do this? How could they be THAT stupid?

This is old news I know, but I just started playing again a month and a half ago and this truely bothers me. They will probably never change this, as I stated before, but they would sure do the game alot of good if they made an official froglok city, instead of slapping them in MY GROBB. Frogloks should have remained sources of froglok meat for troll stew, nothing more.
