    Everquest and HT

    Any EQ players out there with an HT chip? I'm wondering how your out of game performance is while EQ is running. Everquest was written to consume 100% of CPU power when running, like I can run BF1942 in the background and multitask with no problem at all, but if EQ is running I can barely check my email. This is the case on every CPU out there but I was wondering if HTing helps this?

    Thanks,
    Kyler1

    That's what I did, I've played SWG, EnB, Planetside, and EQ. EQ is the only one I have ever found with enough content to keep me busy. Go for it!

    EQ was decent, my only qualm about it was that you had to walk EVERYWHERE, very slowly, it took godamn forever. I heard about planes of power and it got me interested again.

    I'll pick it up.... tell me what server you guys play on so I can join you


    P.S. Tried UO? UO was the greatest, till they switched ownerships, and everything changed.

    sorry been so busy playing EQ have not had time to check back on thread.

    I am on Stromm which is or was the newest server until last weekend when they opened a new one.

    But it is special in that they are not allowing any transfers whatsoever so no one can come from another server as level 65 with all of their uber equpiment.


    Anyway planes of power really fixed things very easy to get around everywhere, can get from one side of the world in less then 5-10 min max...no more need for boats.

    Also so many ways to get run speed like SOW, they have new AA abialites that every class can be almsot as fast as SOW and hroses and well there is so much new stuff...

    anyway if you need help and on Stromm let me know i will hook you up

    Never tried them myself, I like to make my own maps as part of the fun.

    Enjoy the best MMO out there ,

    what is your ingame name?


    if you are a necro i would not worry about weapons/items just yet

    biggest thing you will need is spells and they cost alot.


    I can definitely help, i can toss you some platinum to get started


    but you can get some really cheap decent items that use to cost a ton back in the old world, have you been to bazaar yet?

    check it out

    If your in freeport or Qeynos you can get to the Plane of Knowledge by clicking on the book to the left of the city.

    Freeport, exit the city through the gates and go left until you hit the wall, on this wall there is a spot where you can actually walk through into a cavern with the book in it.

    Qeynos, exit the city through the gates, go left and follow the wall around right to the book in plane sight.

    from the plane of knowledge you can get pretty much anywhere, including the bazaar.
