If you can get your hands on a Di'zok Escape Staff, do so. It has an unlimited click of Evacuate (same effect as Succor) with 9 second cast time, NO recast delay. If you have bandolier setup, you can quickly swap your primary hand and click, saving you from needing Succor mem'd while adventuring. The only downsides are that you need to be lvl.56 DRU/WIZ to click and you probably cannot decrease the cast time with AAs (vs. Succor cast normally.) Excellent utility that only requires ONE hand to equip.

Does this version of group evac still have a chance of leaving someone behind?

Not just if you aren't close enough. Each and every one of the evacuation and succor type spells, up to and including the AA Exodus, have a chance to leave behind one or more of the party. I've been left behind by my own evac before. That was....unpleasant.

oh now I understand why I got left behind as did on other of our force. I thought it was just a glitch or maybe I got killed just as the port went off

<shrug> live and learn. :)

Wow, I can't believe I never knew this... or never heard this. Of all the groups I've been in, and of all the uber people I've left behind *snicker*

I've actually turned in feedback and bug reports and never heard anything back about it. Very interesting info, thanks

The level 57 Succor spell takes 9 seconds to cast, while the level 18 Lesser Succor spell takes 10.5 seconds to cast. However, with a spell haste item equipped (level 18 spell, so spell haste 1 will even work!), the casting time on Lesser Succor is only 8.9 seconds. Now of course, the lower level version costs more mana to cast, and takes more mana from the spellcasters in the group, but for a lot of people, getting a spell haste item might be a lot easier than obtaining this spell, so it's still a very viable alternative until you can find this spell scroll.

For those of you with Planes of Power, there are two very easy quests in the Plane of Knowledge that result in Spell Haste 2 items! One of them is a forage quest, so it's easier for druids than just about anyone else. The other simply requires some travel, which druids also do better than anyone else.

Fine Antique Corset (forage quest):

Fine Cut, Diamond Inlaid Mask (quick travel quest):
http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/quest.html?quest=2203

Of course, if you manage to find yourself a Spell Haste 3 item, then Succor will win the day and save lives on numerous occasions, and Egress will save *your* life on numerous occasions!
