Good bye Everquest 2… :
Posted by Ogrebear's Thoughts [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 May 2016, 12:15 pm

This one is hard but it’s time has come. I’ve been playing 3 MMo’s at the same time. World of Warcraft, The Old Republic, and Everquest 2. And i don’t have the time to put in to all 3. So i’m dropping the one i fine the last fun at the moment. And that happens to [...]

Visiting Stormwind City
Posted by Ogrebear's Thoughts [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 8 May 2016, 12:28 pm

Trade District

This is one of the thing i loved about Wow, you enter the main city and there are people going all over the place. It reminds me of The Plane of Knowlege from Everquest 1.

And i love the little neat thing blizzard does. Like this guy, there a Gnome walking [...]

I have a function website again
Posted by Ogrebear's Thoughts [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 7 May 2016, 4:14 pm

I spent the last 2 days thing there was something wrong on my end of the website. Since it was either super slow or wasn’t working at all. And sometime was giving database issues. After looking at the database and seeing everything was fine i figure out it the host issues. Looks like they resolve [...]

A Blinding Contract: Level 20-30 Tradeskill quests
Posted by Ogrebear's Thoughts [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 7 May 2016, 12:34 pm

I just completed the Demands of the Raven tradeskill quest line (i’m still existed that there is a quest line for tradeskillers). Since i was already in my 30’s on my dirge i went over to Butcherblock and started the level 20-30 Tradeskill quest line. There are quite a few quest in this one, and when you [...]

Off to Goldshire i go to help the stonefields and Maclures
Posted by Ogrebear's Thoughts [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 6 May 2016, 12:09 pm

As i start on the road from Northshire to Goldshire a man called Falkhaan Isenstrider lets me know his friend is the innkeeper at the Lion’s Pride Inn and i should speak to him.

So it been so long since i played Wow i forgot how detailed the world was. And how [...]

Freeport City Festival: Who’s the fast of them all!!!
Posted by Ogrebear's Thoughts [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 5 May 2016, 12:44 pm

So this May 1 through May 7th is the Freeport City Festival. I’ve only explored a little bit of it but in the Commonland there this pretty epic race you can run. The race takes place in the air with a special flying mount. The goal is you go through a set of ring around [...]

The Adventures of Ogrebearss
Posted by Ogrebear's Thoughts [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 4 May 2016, 12:45 pm

Well it kind of sucks that my name Ogrebear, wasn’t allowed and that the name Ogrebears was also not allowed. So my first character in Wow is Ogrebearss. He is a human paladin.

Beating them Back. Marshal McBride has informed me that the Blackrock orcs have managed to sneak into Northshire and that i [...]

You can play WOW for Free??? I didn’t know that!
Posted by Ogrebear's Thoughts [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 2 May 2016, 12:32 pm

So my plan was to start playing Wow 2 month before the expansion came out, cause i want to try to get in to WoW. So i decided i would patch the game over night since it is huge and i have the space. After it was patched i just randomly clicked the login button to [...]

Visualize your Google location history.
Posted by Ogrebear's Thoughts [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 25 April 2016, 11:53 am

Some of you may know that i’m a software engineer. Recently i was playing around with visualizing google location history. If you have an android phone (Unless you turned off Google should be storing your location). Or if you have an iphone where you have downloaded the google app and enable Google now. To get [...]

The Battle of Storm Gorge
Posted by Ogrebear's Thoughts [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 26 April 2016, 12:36 pm

So this was pretty cool. While i was exploring the Great Divide i came across the public quests that they added to the game. The first public quest i found was The Battle of Storm Gorge, which had just started. How the public quest scales depending on how many people are doing it.

Solo Small Group [...]

Visualization Everquest 2 data.
Posted by Ogrebear's Thoughts [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 27 April 2016, 5:24 pm

So as some of you may know i’m a Software Developer, and i some time (more often now) make little programs for fun. I was looking at eq2u and i was wondering how do they get the data from SOE. When i came across “The Data Api” post on the eq2 forums by Feldom. The post [...]

The Great Divide and the City of Thurgadin
Posted by Ogrebear's Thoughts [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 April 2016, 12:12 pm

I have to say Daybreak, the City of Thurgadin and the start of the zone looks amazing. The rest of the zone has what i feel is a classic issue with Everquest 2. Very little detail (pretty much just a texture on the ground), but that how eq2 has always been.

So i should of [...]

EQ2 GU 100: The Siege of Zek, what happened to GU 99??
Posted by Ogrebear's Thoughts [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 29 April 2016, 12:42 pm

So yesterday in Everquest 2 Game Update 100 went live. You can read the update notes here. But i don’t remember there being a GU 99, or 90, or even an 80. I am hoping the renumbering of the GU mean they plan to release something out every 2-3 month. But there is a small [...]

Good Bye Black Desert, It me not you
Posted by Ogrebear's Thoughts [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 30 April 2016, 12:18 pm

So i really did try to get in to Black Desert Online. The first character i made, a Valkyrie was just not fun at all for me. And by the time i got to level 15 i wasn’t having fun. The second character that i made, a Berserker i found as more fun, but again [...]

Demands of the Ravens (Tradeskill 10-19)
Posted by Ogrebear's Thoughts [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 1 May 2016, 12:38 pm

OMG Tradeskill Quest!!!!

So i started to tradeskill again now that i’ve come back to Everquest 2. I used to have 2 high-end characters but i think the 2 super high-end ones got deleted during one of the server moves… Or i deleted them… or something. So I’m starting over and I’m looking online at EQ2i and [...]

The Everquest 2 Alt Army
Posted by Ogrebear's Thoughts [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 April 2016, 12:27 pm

It only took about a month but i’m fully addicted to Everquest 2 again, and have created an Alt Army. Right now i’m only leveling 3 at a time. Im working on getting Ratbear to 100, and working on the Alts Dirgebear, and Maidbear (but only until they run out of Vitality)

Tankbear level 58 Berserker


The Stonebrunt Highlands
Posted by Ogrebear's Thoughts [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 April 2016, 1:32 pm

I just completed Stonebrunt Highlands and pretty much all the solo content that there is in the Sentinel’s Fate expansion. Overall I enjoyed the solo this expansion, one of the things i think was lacking was a big ending. The quest just kind of ended and that was it. I would of like a big [...]

I guess i need to get in to WOW again for Legion
Posted by Ogrebear's Thoughts [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 April 2016, 12:48 pm

I never really got into Wow back in the day (The last time I played Wow was right after Cataclysm came out in 2010). With Legion coming out at the end of the summer August 30. Right now i’m playing 3 MMO’s

Everquest 2 Black Desert Star Wars the Old Republic

Trying to play 3 [...]

A new Hero is Born Dirgebear
Posted by Ogrebear's Thoughts [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 April 2016, 12:30 pm

So a lot has happened in Everquest 2 in a short amount of time. A few days ago i was leveling an alt. Then i decided to start leveling my level 80 assassin again (which has been fun). But as i was playing my assassin i remember how much i enjoyed raiding. So i started [...]

Continuing on my berserker journey in Black Desert
Posted by Ogrebear's Thoughts [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 April 2016, 12:33 pm

So i just past level 15 and past the quest i was on when i was a Valkyrie. I found it 100 time more easy to complete the quest as a Beserker than a Valkyrie. I’m still very confused on a lot of the game, but for now i’m going to just follow the [...]

EQ2 2016: Into Sundered Frontier
Posted by Ogrebear's Thoughts [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 April 2016, 1:39 pm

So first thing straight off the bat. Daybreak made some major changes to combat in the last 6 years. Today i can kill everything with one hit… 1 hit. Which is sad as it kind of make the game pointless and to easy. So what ever combat changes they made in the last 6 years, [...]

Jedi Consular, starting act 2
Posted by Ogrebear's Thoughts [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 April 2016, 12:52 pm

So i haven’t blogged about it but i’m playing 3 MMO’s at the same time. In Star Wars: The Old Republic i’ve been level 8 alts (i want to get through all the story lines).

So far i have 7 of my 8 alts through Act 2.

Ogrebear my Trooper Carchi my Sith Warrior Ratbear my [...]

EQ2 2016: A Hero Returns
Posted by Ogrebear's Thoughts [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 April 2016, 1:52 pm



A long long time ago on a server called Kithicor, lived a little Ratonga called Ratbear Fuzzybottom. He was a Hero like no other hero, was part of one of best Assassin in the game. He was one of the top Assassin during the time of Desert of Flames, Kingdom of Sky, Echoes [...]

Good Bye Valkyrie, hello Berserker
Posted by Ogrebear's Thoughts [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 April 2016, 12:41 pm

So i started Black Desert Online as a Valkyrie. I wanted to play as a tank-like class and thought this was a class that i was going to enjoy playing. But by the time i got to level 15 i didn’t really enjoy the game to much and was kind of confused at what i [...]

EQ2 2016: Back to The Lesser Faydark 55-58
Posted by Ogrebear's Thoughts [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 April 2016, 12:23 pm

So it has been pretty fun leveling from level 1 to 58. It has been a fun journey but i’ve decided that i’m going to stop leveling the berserker. I believe I got the hang of Everquest 2 and i plan to play as one of my Orginal Everquest 2 Charaters.

Ogrebears or Ratbear. There are [...]
