    Hey folks its that time again!

    My friend and I have a Classic content EQ server up with some custom changes. If you haven't played SOD in a while and are looking for an "Early SOD" experience come check out our server. It is Classic EQ content with a little bit of custom content in line with classic. A few extra world bosses some QOL improvements. You can find it on the EQEMU server list.

    That sounds pretty cool.
    This post almost did that thing where the nostalgia meat hook flies into your back and drags you kicking and screaming to that awful folder on your computer that containers your everquest install .iso's to me.

    Yeah Boxing is ok (6 Max). We are looking at solutions to cap boxing at 3 and making Velious raid content easier. Not sure of the approach to take for nerfing content. Having AA's will help a lot but the mob max damage and Max HP is still super high. Ideal is a raid of 3 groups 6 players total.

    I'm really trying to keep the spirit of Original EQ or even SOD in my project. the Pre Thaz content like the planer raids. I lack the skills to bring out the Bosses of SoD but I'll try to keep it interesting with Mob special attacks, perhaps a proc that is a -2000AC Debuff requiring a tank swamp, or Stacking AOE Debuffs that need to be dispelled.

    We ran into an issue with AA's and Expansions and came up with a new way of handling AAs. Mobs now have a chance to drop a quest item that can be turned in for 1 AA. Based on mob level there is an increased chance to acquire these jewels. The server is still Classic Content with level 51 cap. Players are able to Grind AA's Jewels from any mob level 27+ (level 27 mobs have a .02% drop chance, Level 56+ Mobs have a 2% drop chance.

    The Jewels can be Traded to Alts/Other Players. This allows players to box several characters at once but focus AA's on a specific character if you needed. For instance you might box 4 (tank healer dps support) but when you raid with your friends some one else is the MT. You can spend all your AA's on your DPS and Healer.

    Currently there are a maximum of 98 AA's you can obtain at max level, we are going to add more in the near future.
