WoW Level 17 Mage. EQ2 Level 34 Paladin

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.

WoW:

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.

EQ2:

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.

In General:

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.

You are a madman. I played DAoC and FFXI at the same time when ToA first came out for DAoC and FFXI also had just shipped here in the US. It was before our son was born though and it only lasted a month before I dumped DAoC for the final time. And I was already 50 in DAoC...

You can use /t or /tell instead of /w in WoW. I never use /w myself.

I might soon be on the same boat.

The wife plays WoW and I play EQ2.

I''ve been contemplating getting WoW so she has someone to play the game with when we play at the same time. When she is working I could play EQ2.

The problem is I really think my brain would explode.

I think I''ll just wait till I''m lvl 50 in Eq2 and take a break.

I''ve played EQ1 and CoH at the same time...at one point I was actually raiding in EQ and being in Task Force missions at the same time. Luckily, as any EQ1 raider knows, there''s mountains of downtime, and you usually only need a handful of keys.

@maladen: Could you perhaps check your /played time? Would be very interesting how much time you sunk in these levels in both games.

Wool Cloth: Go to the southern part of Westfall, a bit east of Moonbrook are camps of Gnolls...those drop wool. The mobs are 17-19, so you have to prey on the stragglers the camps are still too tough.
But if you manage to make a duo-team with a priest, you can clear the camps quite cool with Blizzard and Arcane Explosion.

I can not really /played with EQ2 any longer to get any sort of accurate time played. Because of the pain in the butt selling method I often leave my guy logged into his room selling wares while I am eating, sleeping, at the gym, basically I keep him online untile the server goes down for its daily reboot.

I can give a general out line of my play time although not sure that would help. I can do /played with WoW still for an accurate count.

Thanks for the information on the Wool I actually started to find some last night on gnolls south of Lakeridge. Was a little rough out there solo between the spiders and dang black dragon whelps but did finish a couple quests and make it to 18.
