Well despite the odds I been able to play both and make some progress. My only problem in playing the 2 has been the confusion over some of the AI quirks.
WoW uses /w where EQ2 uses /t for example.
Got my Human mage to 17 and engineering up to 105. Been having a good time exploring Westfalls, Moch Lodan, and Lakshire areas.
I need to find out how to get wool cloth and course stone more regularly so I can make some of my bigger engineering toys.
I am not happy with the look of the level 16 mage quest robe but it was too good for me not to wear.
I been specing my talents into Arcane and while I am a crappy mage since I refuse to shoot and scoot I am having fun.
Barbarian Paladin is now level 34 and 27 at weaponsmithing. I solo in Enchanted Lands and Rivervale mostly. Grouping mostly in Runnyeye currently.
Been working on my Ghoulbane quest and think I am close to getting it done. One part required a raid of about 24 of us to get done which was formed basically as a pick-up raid. Took 3 times to get the boss but we finally did it and was decent fun.
What is working well right now is I play WoW when I have only a short time to play, or when my friend is on. I play EQ2 when I have a larger block of time to play. Heck I even had EQ2 running at the same time as WoW at one point when I had my guy selling in EQ2 in his room while I adventured in WoW.
So in short what I am saying is that both games coexsist fairly well for me. With WoW easy to level, solo focused, and casual play style I am not finding it any harder to play it with EQ2 then say another single player PC game.
I know having both is not for everybody but thought I toss this out there for those that care.
