The Fields of Bones, and Kurn’s Tower
Posted by Ogrebear's Thoughts [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 10 July 2013, 7:23 pm

So i started a Berserk, and got him through  the Mines of Gloomingdeep with out dying which was nice. Killing thing was much slower, i chose to have a healer mercenary instead of a tank. After i got to level 10 i completed the Haunted Butcherblock quest again as an ogre. The interesting thing here is [...]

Haunted Butcherblock
Posted by Ogrebear's Thoughts [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 8 July 2013, 8:05 pm

So the first quest i got from my armor person (from the in game e-mail tip) was Haunted Butcherblock. The first part is to visit the Chessboard. When i originally played everquest, i never really ventured far in to Faydwer, mostly because the races i played started on the eastern part of Antonica or [...]

Remembering Qeynos
Posted by Ogrebear's Thoughts [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 6 July 2013, 7:56 pm

 

When i started playing Everquest in early 2012 (sometime between Planes of power came out), my first charter was a human warrior, who started out of the city of Qeynos. So before i started the adventure i wanted to go back to the first area i every saw in an MMO.

So the the tutorial (Mines of Gloomingdeep) gets you to about level 10 went i left. Thing i really liked was the list of quest that they had. I am not sure if every single zone now has one of these or not but i did like it. It added a little bit of rails [...]

Mines of Gloomingdeep, starting my ranger
Posted by Ogrebear's Thoughts [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 2 July 2013, 12:44 am

So after almost 10 years i’ve come back to Everquest… Mostly because i have nothing else to play and its free to play… and i do miss everquest. So since i’ve last played Everquest they’ve changed the starting area. Instead of starting at each races city you start in the mines of gloomingdeep, with your [...]

Starting over and everquest 1
Posted by Ogrebear's Thoughts [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 1 July 2013, 8:34 pm

So I have not played the original Everquest since 2004 when i switched to Everquest 2. The last few weeks I’ve been looking at my video games and have been rather board. I also looked at what is currently out and found nothing that really interested me, or that i wanted to spend the money [...]

Starting a Shatter Mesmer in Guild Wars 2

I know I’ve been jumping from game to game like a crack addict, hell i even put in 10 hour in to Euro Truck Simulator 2 this weekend  But at this point i think i’m going to stick to Guild Wars 2, and maybe a bit of The Secret World.

After seeing the EA logo when i loaded the game, i was about to ask for my money back, but after reading some of the forum it looks like funcom made the game with zero help from EA, and EA is acting as the publisher. So i’ll give the game a chance. (note to anyone from EA, [...]

If there is one video game that i’m excited for coming out is Everquest Next. I was a big Everquest 1 player in my early college years. I played on Kane Bayle starting a few month before Plane of Power came out in 2002, until late in 2004 (i think i quit a month or [...]

Ok not long after Patch 2.0 has come out, EA has release patch 3.0, which you can read what has changed here. Just quickly looking at this patch it looks like they did (at least in the patch) a lot of stuff with Traffic. So i’m going to be trying my luck at a casino city to [...]

Posted by Ogrebear's Thoughts [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 5 May 2013, 4:05 pm

So originality i was going to try to play the MMO Tera, as it was free to play and from the graphic it looked pretty good. I spent maybe a 30 minutes trying to play the first area and left rather confused at what i was doing. It just ended up feeling like i was button mashing and wasn’t [...]

I had hoped patch 2.0 would make the game playable… You know the games been out almost 2 month, they done tons of patches, and this was the first really big patch, and i was hoping that this would really make the game playable.

Traffic has become horrible. I started a new city, and with [...]

So Elfbear completed all of Dawnguard over the last few days. Dawnguard is the Vampire/Vampire hunters. I went with the Vampire. I won’t talk much about the content (it was pretty fun though), but here some picture because the part they added looked amazing.

Skyrim: Meet Orcbear my 2 Handed War Hammer Warrior

So like i said before i like to role play my characters  Elfbear, the other character i was talking about was a Mage who only care about being the most powerful mage alive. This character Orcbear, is my tanky warrior, his care is more along the line of doing the “right” thing. In this case straight off the [...]

New header image

So after a long wait i have uploaded about 18 new header images above from various games i’ve played over the last few year. Sadly i lost the original one i did, so i don’t have any from the eq1, eq2 days, but still better than nothing.

So check them out.

While Elfbear is the lowest level of my character (mainly because he as a Mage he uses less skills than the Thief, or Warrior), he had the most money, so i ended up buying a homestead for him. Looking at the three homesteads. I went with Lakeview Manor as it sounded like it would be the easiest to [...]

What else can i say straight off the bat, other than Skyrim can be so damn massive and sexy at time. The throat of the world in all its glory from Winterhold. I’ve yet climbed the 7000 steps to the top of high Horthgar on this character yet, but one day when i’m not busy with the rest [...]

I tired, i really really tried to get in to Morrowind, but i couldn’t. Maybe 10 years ago i could, but with all the improvements Skyrim has made over Morrowind, i just couldn’t get back in to the game.

So now i’m back to play my Skyrim character (which i have 3 of).
