So far the move to FV has been well worth it in double xp alone. I have managed to get tier three finished in SOD also. The double xp is an amazing thing when you add LOD or a potion to it, especially to someone who can only scrape together a few hours a week of playtime. Summer is screaming, hard to believe it is nearing the end of June!
Just a correction: FV does not have double XP. That's Test. FV's bonus is "only" 50% (double xp is 100% bonus).
I didn't really do anything this weekend. Had some new additions to the FV squad, including the first beastlord ever (I've always hated that class but now I have to accept at least one of them) that I had to gear (and train, since two of the four had been heavily PL'd). It seems like whenever I try to convince an old guildie to return to EQ, I wind up with another account (or four) when they outright refuse but give me the "but if you're still playing, might as well take my toons so they don't go to waste cuz I'm never comin' back" spiel. I've heard everything from "those models hurt my eyes now" (I can relate. As much as I love AO, their models hurt my eyes now) to "I don't have time for EQ's timesinks" (I'm guessing other games mask their timesinks better, since they all have them), and everything in between. I need to stop trying to get people to come back. My bank account growled at me on Saturday.
