View Full Version : Looking for decorating friends on AB

<p>Hello Decorators! </p><p>Well I have finally created a toon on AB so I can see if I'll like it over there better than being isolated on Nagafen.  I wasn't able to use a character transfer token as they appear to be unavailable since the GU for some folks like me.  This means I am lonely broke adventerer with 6 silver in my pocket. </p><p>If anyone has time to help me out I could really use some things to get me settled such as mottled backpacks.  I wouldn't be able to pay you but would consider making some things for trade during the next Moonlight Enchantments.</p><p>I would really like some new friends as well. I want to take my time finding a guild or otherwise I'd hastily join one for this type of support.  Anyway, would love to reach out to someone tonight in game and am on PST.  I hope to hear from  you!  Thanks in advance!</p><p>edited for typo's <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p>

<p>I wish that you were going where I am...I would gladly donate anything you needed (not wanting anything back.) I know what its like to start with nothing when you've been used to all that you had. I felt that way when I started on Test, and its very empty there most times I have logged in. It was hard having no bag space, no money, and no means to decorate as I wanted [  can't make money as well if you cannot sell things <img src="/eq2/images/smilies/9d71f0541cff0a302a0309c5079e8dee.gif" border="0" />   ]</p><p>I have a feeling others will end up helping you...just get that impression here. But I read this and found myself wishing I could help. =)</p><p>Good luck and hope you find your comfy niche and are happy in your new home!</p><p>Edit:  P.S...If you are ever on Freeport and need anything at all...you know who to call on (same name there as here.)</p>

<p>Heya. I don't have a tailor but I can make you some sumac strongboxes. Just contact me on Twinklin or I may be on Valouria or Purrdie (I'm been adventuring on alts a lot lately). Welcome to AB!</p>

<p>hello hello! I myself just moved to AB from Crushbone (formerly of LDL) and havent hooked up with a guild or such so making a new friend who shares my obsession would be awesome. *grin* I have been too preoccupied decorating various projects to get myself out much and meet people. I'm not a carpenter or tailor, but I am a L39 provisioner so if you need some lower tier foods let me know. I'm online a few times a week, mainly weekends or evenings 7ish-10ish CST. Look for Crymsynn or Temprah.</p>

<p>Hey fellow Naggy neighbor!</p><p>I'm considering a transfer to AB or somewhere as well. The person I though was going to be joining me for EQ2 isn't now, so I've no reason to stay in PvP land when I'd rather decorate and roleplay more.</p><p>I suppose good/evil doesn't matter as much on other servers...though I tend to drift more towards evil for some odd reason. I have a DE on AB - Delvra - I rolled up the other night and haven't done anything with yet.</p><p>My Naggy toons are in my sig, if you want someone on that server to chat with too. <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p>

<p>Wow!  Well you folks really know how to give a warm welcome!  I'm not even sure how to react, I am used to being ignored, trash talked, insulted or challenged to duels.  Well just kidding...sort of <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />.   I will definately add you all to my friends list and reach out to y'all tonight.  </p><p>Zeedlana - are you on the Freeport faction on Naggy?</p><p>Tempra - Would love to chat and adventure together.</p><p>Littlesparkz - Thank you and will chat tonight.</p><p>Ennuii - Thank you for your PM and gracious offer!  I have responded.</p><p>My new alts name is Cheribomb and she is a High Elf Illusionist. I got her to level 9 last night and she completed her High Elf quest series in Castleview Hamlet and Oakmyst.  Must have more green whisps!!!!</p><p>Here's what I think I will try to focus on for my playstyle on AB. </p><ul><li>I haven't actually read a quest dialogue in more than a  year as I am too busy wondering if there are any PVPers nearby so I may take my time doing actual quests.</li><li>I haven't been able to lock between levels 10-29 as that is not allowed on Naggy.  So I may level lock at 10 or 20, earn AA's, harvest for raws, become a broker queen again and work for Qho.</li><li>For my tradeskilling, I plan to create a Jeweller as it's a tradeskiller that I don't already have. Plus if you really talk me into it by continuing being so friendly I may eventually move all of my level 90 Carp, Tailor, Sage, Alchemist & Provisioners over some day.</li><li>I would also like to honestly complete shiny collections at least at the lower levels without buying a single one!  I haven't been into Freeport, Commonlands, Gorowyn, Neriak for any length of time so those zones are mostly new for me as well.</li><li>Decorating wise: I would like to give myself a no-carpenter challenge.  Where I go back to the old days where I didn't have a highly skilled carpenter and had to scavenge, grind during city festivals, grind for city faction items, do moonlight enchantments and questing for house items. </li><li>I also plan to do every single Heritage Quest at least at the lower levels. I don't know how many times I've rolled a toon only to level too fast and didn't bother to go back and do them.</li></ul><p>Those are just some ideas. If you have other suggestions for fun stuff or ways to work hard to get things do share! </p><p>Thanks again for all your warm responses!  /Hug!</p>

<p>Yes, I guess you can say I'm on the freep side. <img src="/eq2/images/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" /></p><p>Though I don't like Freeport much and only do a quick run through to where I need to go and hightail it back to Neriak or Gorowyn as soon as possible depending on who I'm playing.</p><p>I do have a wood elf to bring back to life that I haven't yet, so I might roll her up on AB tonight. Because all the things I want to craft for my big house I'm not high enough level yet outside of one set of furniture...and I think I need to gather more mats for it.</p><p>I'll track you down if I end up playing tonight. <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p>

<p>Welcome to Antonia Bayle!</p><p>Seems everybody already offered some sort of help so I will just add this. In case you don't know or didn't do it already, join the Homeshow channel:</p><p>/join Homeshow</p><p>It is a cross-server channel where the decorators hang out and a good place to discuss ideas or to get to know your fellow decorators. <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p><p>Just saying since due to the PVP ruleset you can't use cross-server channels. So not sure how many decorators on Nagafen are aware of the channel existance.</p>

It was tough to get to that decision but I really don't have anything to lose at this point. I have one alt on AB, the rest are still on Naggy, I can move them anytime (at a steep price and when they fix the character transfer tokens).</p><p>We both have discussed that it would be awesome if you can choose your server upon logging in instead of being tied to just the one.  I do hope that if they elect to do cross server dungeon finder groups that one could try to meet and trade there?  Or they could give us a cross server broker as you suggested.  That would be even better!</p>

Foodwise, I might be able to get by for a while making the 1-9 food recipes that I'll get before I choose my Jeweler tradeskill.  I plan to lock at Tier 2 for a bit.   I will definately be looking for a Tailor to make T2 gear when I get the rares, going to run the Tradeskill questline from Tami Swifthammer in Halas. Seems to me at this point if I need anything all I need to do is talk out of character in 1-9 as lots of folks seem so eager to help! Thanks again!</p>
