    it's a free classic EQ emu server. I just started and so far most everything is original (besides global ooc chat, some hybrid class exp penalties, thats it so far that i've found)

    server is around 400-500 peak time and growing fast. it only opened in october 2009 I believe.

    give it a shot, it's free :dunno:

    did you have EQ titanium or did download it?

    How is meditate? Do you have to have your spellbook open and the meditate button clicked?

    no, you don't need your spellbook open

    Is it just me or does the 1999 server not allow the expansions or better looking graphics? It's just not playable imho with washed out textures.

    What about leveling? Can you find groups at low level? Did they make it solo-able? I was thinking about remaking my DE Cleric. But that seems crazy to me to try and find a group with such a low population.

    Leveling isn't too bad, It will take you between 1 and 2 months to hit the max level and expect a few days in there where you just can't find a group. theres trade skills and quests you can do when you can't exp.

    The lower levels are some times harder than the higher levels just because low level players are spread out but once everyone starts moving to dungeons the exp will pick up.

    Edit: warriors have awful agro while leveling. if an OT group is made, someone make a shadow knight they have no problem holding agro.

    Yeah, Dungeons like high keep, upper guk, mistmoore castle, solusek's eye, nagafens lair, lower guk.

    SKs are perfectly fine for tanking in exp groups in all classic zones and will be just fine in kunark and velious as well. the only real difference is warriors will have defensive discpline on raid bosses in kunark and velious. But SKs and Paladins are the kings of holding agro whereas warriors have to pray for an early proc on their weapons or a successful taunt. SKs just cast a spell and bam agro.

    EQ Titanium has 10 expansions but this specific server only uses the original game + kunark and then velious later on.

    project1999.org/forums/showthread.php?t=2651

    Setting up the files for this server is easy but it will 'break' your install for other servers but most of them are bad anyway. Most people have the harddrive space so once you install, make a copy of the entire EQ folder for one unmodified version and then the project1999 folder if you want to be able to play on other servers.

    If you get caught your accounts will be banned. It's not worth it if you plan on sicking around.

    If they really did just stick to the original 3 expansions then you're kind of hooped, shit was hard as balls back then. :rofl:

    I remember making a wizard and at level 1 I couldn't kill an even con mob right out of the gate, it was pathetic. :squint:

    Yes, grouping at low levels is very easy right now, you won't have a hard time finding a group on prime time.

    the server just opened in october 2009 so there are a lot of people levelling still, and word is spreading fast so a lot of noobs.

    Kunark is not released yet, won't be for a while.

    and they say they are only going up to Velious.

    yeah there's 1 dominant guild and several aspiring guilds, and a few feeder guilds that will never do anything.
