By the way, EXP pots are no longer dropping like they did last year for these revamped zones. Not sure if it's a dev oversight and they'll be turned back on later, but for now, they're not in game.
Length of Revamped CT?

yes, they are done today. popped in the zone and was attacked by 50-ish level mobs, not the 80-90ish.
Until when?

all i can say is this sure brings cazic back to 1999! a group on every named except in the old days 90% were single players playing single characters and cazic thule usually had 60+ in it down to 40ish in off peak hours.

things got so bad rubicite was removed.

kinda funny really. =)

On the Nameless, you've got Ubers camped on the named, selling the loot rights to the drops. Just like those fabled pet weapons/killer augs/amd essences.

Stop biyatching about the bone that Sony threw people who don't want to farm T4 essences all day, every day, and just want to play the game and have fun. Go back to SoD and farm more ****. We won't complain, I swear.

Bonesmasher, while this may have been happening the day you posted, we did not experience this on May 3rd that I am aware of (camp locking for selling loot rights). In fact I saw a number of "rot" /ooc messages.

There were, however, a bit of accusations flying around as always happens when you get a lot of folks trying to get similar things in an open zone. THAT was familiar territory from the old days. *sigh*

I think the devs' made an error in allowing the glowing armor quest pieces to be tradable (ie. sold on Bazaar mule). As for the "pay for loot rights" thing rearing its head, there are ways to ... control that if it gets out of hand.

I am sure the same thing on your server is "system wide".

I dont understand why a TEMPORARY revamped zone that drops 71- 76 gear only is even accessable by 80+ characters. Then... make the loot droppable so the plat selling crews can have their way basicly.

Anyone that could actually use this gear as an upgrade is going to have a hard time making it in these zones. Trust me I went there with 2 others and mercs all of us lvl 75. It was nail-biting to say the least.

The first hour of the trip I made to Cazic was spent fighting over a little stretch of the maze. The 2 others I had with me were my family and we were sitting in the same room. They have only been playing a few months. I was saddened by the display 90% of the players in the zone (22 at the time) including us gave them and I.

If you want this gear just send the mules in bazaar a tell. I am sure you can be directed to (insert online plat sellers here)

Why do I smell the stink of fattening pockets somwhere in this mess?

Here we go, more whining about how the gear doesnt push the top end. Maybe this is for people who want to do more SoD but arent quite good enough. I like that it is better than the Blackburrow stuff yet has same level req. Im excited im ramping up a nice box group and have only 1 lvl 85 T3 sod character so i love the sound of this new gear. If you are way better than this stuff then farm and sell it. Otherwise stay in SoD and let those of us who can use it go get it!

"While I haven't seen the stuff that's coming outta here just yet..."

interpreted:

"While I have no idea wtf Im spouting, and didn't read the context of the complaint about SOE's advertisement of the zone and gear, I thought it would be a good time to use the word UBER in capitals 3 or 4 times, because I've seen other people respond to posts they don't like that way..."

This is a forum to post information for people that want to know up front. Players who want to have fun and see a zone aren't coming here to find out what drops. Most who do appreciate real information, not your opinion of my opinion.

Want to see what drops? Go there. Want to know ahead of time? Read my post.
I don't pay Alla to read that every zone in EQ is fun if my attitude is right.

yw =)

FV drop rate is insanely slow talking 100 to 150 kills for 1 piece that is baddd.
#Cedarbough, Posted: Apr 27 2009 at 9:33 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I hate to be negative but is this a 10th anniversary joke? This was sold as geared to 80+. 80+ is SoD. The loot in here doesn't match t1 SoD, or barely. There are 10X nicer items in t3 solo tasks. It's 2009 SOE. People have t4 gear banked for their level 50's now and everyone 75+ is wearing t3+. Mobs in zone to level 89, and the best hp's are 400,weapon ratio is 33/21 and clickies are for invis to animal still? Sorry but that's disappointing. Maybe if this didnt come out the day after fabled ended, when you could kill pop gods for 600hp loot with a merc... or didn't seem so lame compared to LAST years Blackburrow loot, which is at LEAST attuneable?

Other people don't have T4 banked for nothing, thanks. Thanks for just being you. Just assuming everyone is just like you. That's so special, it makes a little tear appear in my eye. I'm crying. See? - You made me cry.

You know, if you like SoD so much, here's an idea. Stop biyatching about the bone that Sony threw people who don't want to farm T4 essences all day, every day, and just want to play the game and have fun. Go back to SoD and farm more ****. We won't complain, I swear. I reckon "Your" idea of "fun" is "SoD 2.0." that "you" can "Farm" some "more." That's your idea. Not mine. Mine is "Neat! Something new to explore/new gear to get and something to have fun with!" Yours? "This isn't SoD. It sucks. SoD rules. This sucks. You suck for wanting it to not be SoD 2.0. Because SoD rules. That is all. More SoD plzkthxbye."

You know what else, bucko? There's a whole lot of zones that don't drop ANYTHING close to SoD level..and they are fun, fun, fun. Too bad you are too short sighted to see that.

In retrospect, I believe the below post is correct - and that my comparison of a certain post to the retarded was abusive... to the retarded. I will edit it immediately and I apologize to any of the retarded who were offended. Also, I will spare you the personal details, however, they were intended for comparison only.

a) I play EQ for fun, and have owned my account since the game was beta. I'm still confused at what point you found something in my post that indicated that EQ isn't fun. =)

b) Every single comment in my post referred to what I see happen every day in EQ and don't like, compounded by the fact that SOE sent me an email saying that Cazic would be SoD equivalent, which it is not. The clickies are outdated , the foci are SOF oriented, and the rest of the stats barely scrape past T2. I didn't advertise otherwise, SOE did, and that was the issue that I addressed. =)

c) I am far from uber, and I don't like the fact that people farm gear and bank it for alts that likely won't use it, but am willing to accept that as the way the game goes. As I would assume SOE does. Thus my sarcasm. (Reference removed) ((corollary: me not liking something does not mean I think it's "wrong")) =)

d) (References removed)(As Cartman would say in response to someone using the term Bucko (Bucko? did he really say that?) Da @#%^?!? =)

And finally, e) (as in a void I doubt you ever see if you spend this much time getting angry at things) this was fun ! =)

There is no need to be abusive even if people are retarded and don't see your point of view, personal attacks are always abuse and if it were me moderating this site I would delete your posts that are insulting and defamatory. Stick to talking about the game and not the intelligence level of people replying to your message,it makes you less of a person!

Sorry to say Cedarbough, but Colinnbartender and Bonesmasher are right IMHO.You fall in the category of SOURPUSS. Whether or not you put $50000.00 a year in your bank account(who cares !)or not. I am greatful for these revamped zones and the gear is a bonus.Since when is something wrong with banking gear for ones alts. Thanks SOE.

It's not a joke :). The armor requirement for the gear that I've seen is 71 required, 76 recommended. The stuff that I've seen is better than Elegant Defiant gear, but not as good as SoD T3 gear (which has a required level of 80). This makes it perfect for someone like me, who 3-boxes 3 characters that are 76. I want to upgrade my gear, but I want a few hundred more AAs before I push to 80.

So I think this is a great move by SOE. I'm not sure how they advertised CT, but I know BB was advertised as an 80 zone, not an 80+ zone (also BB was revamped pre-SoD if I'm not mistaken, and it's just being reactivated this year).

Anyway, the revamped CT won't serve everyone's needs, but it will serve some people's. I'm heading there right now to try to find some upgrades.

Safe travels...

Speak for yourself, having T4 gear banked for their level 50's. While I haven't seen the stuff that's coming outta here just yet, don't make the broad assumption that everybody is just as uber as you/your guildmates are. What about the players who've never even been to/seen the Lost Temple of Cazic Thule? What if loot really isn't the motivation for checking the re-vamped zone out? What if a seasoned veteran of Everquest feels like re-visiting a zone that he/she hasn't been to in ages? Personally, I think the latter is the reason these zone-wide overhauls were created in the first place.

In short, don't be a sour-puss and go have fun. Or maybe this game is way too serious and the only thing that matters is UBERNESS. Go have a good time, and if you don't like it, go fight in Old Bloodfields.
