My boy Redman the Paladin earned his mythical Holy Avenger sword “The Truth of Marr” with some help from the Viking Fellowship & Olympians.  Apparently of all the classes mythical weapons, Paladins is very powerful.  They say SOE loves its Paladins.  My first character ever in Everquest 1 was a dwarven paladin and I tell you he sucked.  Hard to solo with them back then.  Very slow leveling and gear dependent.  I eventually switched to a Barbarian Beastlord after a 10 month tour of duty cruising the Persian Gulf.  The Beastlord was alot more fun, specially to solo with.  I’ve come to recongize that I am not a tank type in MMOs.  I prefer the DPS type that can relax a bit.  The Hunter in LOTRO that I played was very easy.  He could sit waaaaaaay back and still crank out his max DPS.  EQ2 playing my Brigand is a bit more difficult.  I actually have to move to the back of the mobs to be able to crank out his max potiental van-damage.  It’s not difficult with 1 mob, but with 5 mobs that circle the tank it’s kind of a pain in the arse.  In other news Beoromir built a huge aquarium in his stronghold.  He still needs a squid for it and some coral and sand tiles, but it looks pretty good.

  1. Yet more incoherent rambling! It goes from Red’s epic, to Beo sucking at EQ1, to Beo being lazy, and finally to “Beo added an aquarium to his house! Beo’s house is way better than everyone else’s house! BEO RULES!” I don’t think you can write more than two sentences without the subject invariably shifting to yourself, you miserable egomaniac!

  4. Its extremely powerful! butt not for soloing, or dps or anything. Its powerful in it provides me with alot more tankability, which is good for the whole group!
