So I went on a break 2 1/2 years ago when pvp was at it's prime or I recalled it was. I come back to find the game is free 2 play, nothing wrong with that. Go into EL to go kill some freeport scrubs only to find the zone empty x_X.What happened to the population on Nagafen? I come after 2 year and you're going to tell me that there is no open world pvp anymore? What happened to all the tier 2,3,4,9 pvpers? I swear when i left 2 years ago Enchanted Lands was full of action, SS was full of those adorable lvl 12 twinks stealing fame, I could get on my mains and find some good group pvp in the tier 7-8 zones. Now i can't find anyone, just pve mobs doing the same programmed poop. I even made a new toon exile her to pvp at t2 since it was so dead, oh noes all the starter zones are now city zoned? What the heck???!?!?!? Deleted my exiled toon SMILEY. Seriously what happened did all the players die of old age or did SOE drop a hell bomb to scare everyone away? I hope i find someone to kill or those 15 dollars just went down the trashcan. Battlegrounds suck it's full of noobs chasing down a relic, it's not pvp. SMILEY

PvP sucks now. Supposedly there's a big pvp update coming in the new GU but no one's really hopeful.

Profits from this game are getting used for PS and EQNext. There's only so much 1 dev can do. The forums are broke (login) eq2players still isn't finished after how long? BG's are still broken, DF failed as bad as the arena, but hey, you can buy wings for $20 and fly like Aion!!

PvP is in the 30s and level 90; otherwise totally dead. 

You can find it in warfields, BGs, Great Divide, Eastern Wastes, City of Freeport and EL/Zek/RE/RoV/OOLS (occasionally).  Yes, it's broken, yes people left and there you have it.  The opportunity for new players from the EQ2x merger has passed, so there will not be a new influx of pvp players regardless of the supposed new GU that will involve PvP changes.

Just an fyi:

  • You cannot lock until level 30, so that's why T1-T3 pvp is dead.  Also you can only use 50aa's in class tab/50aa's in subclass trees until level 50. 
  • PvP/PvE gear has some stat separation so you will need two sets.  Unfortunately, due to huge delays in pvp updates, only PvP armor is worth while; pve jewelry from two expansions back is better than the pvp jewelry/weapons available -- so you cannot function as just a 'pvp player' on Nagafen to have a chance at winning 'pvp fights'.
  • Furthermore, you can hire mercs that will assist you in pvp so the openworld PvP that you do find is a joke (bring your own or be ready to die by the merc, not the opponent.)  T4 tank mercs have over 8khps without buffs/gear for an example; which, by the way, I have seen mercs with ry'gorr on (doesn't require you to 'attune it') and some T4 mercs outparse anyone else on warfield towers as an example of the imbalance of these in T4 which previously was the only tier that had anything resembling moderate class balance. 
  • Oh and make a beastlord, they outparse anyone even without power.  Beastlord w/Inquisitor merc is a sure win against 4 maxed out real players.
  • Did I mention mercs and beastlords require you to buy AoD expansion?  Just so you know.

So leave if you don't like it.  But if all of this is acceptable then welcome back!

Lol, most people lost faith during fame decay

it's common understanding that there is no faith in SOE having serious concern for EQ2 PvP

see: mercs still active in PvP 1.5 months after launch...

even launching with mercs PvP-enabled underscores a gross oblivion in SOE design comprehension

also Lol @ eq2players not being kept functional until the new version was ready...

Sad to see what happened. I experienced the best pvp in a game back in the Kingdom of Sky Era. I was so focused on pvp during those times  i never got to enjoy the pve aspect of the game. So I'm currently enjoying it, while the devs fix pvp up or atleast get it to a point where i can enjoy it. I'm currently playing on Nagafen, with my girlfriend and doing quest, actually reading the storylines and crafting. It's nice to see her perspective on the game on how she thinks it's so amazing on how certain things look; she's new to the mmorpg scene and i think EQ2 is a good first game to start her out on.  I have hope for Everquest 2 since no other MMORPG out in the market really catches my attention like this game. I tried SWTOR, Vanguard... list can go on. One thing i will say though are a few complaints to the devs about a returning player trying to be positive on the status of the server.

REMOVE MERCENARIES FROM PVP COMBAT.

Me and my girlfriend are a 21 Pally and 21 Warden at the time of this incident. We go into Wailing Caves so i can show her a new zone, we encounter a green pvp group of 3 freeportians with 2 mercenaries, so i was like WHAT THE HECK let's do this. Me and and the gf aren't twinked at alll and the enemy team doesn't seem to be either. As soon as we engaged the other team, we were instantly killed by their mercenaries.

I also play a lvl 35 twink for monetary income purposes and the fact everyone runs around exploiting the mercenaries power is actually aggrevating me in a way. I know the purpose of mercenaries weren't intended to one shot in pvp, but when the mercenaries are doing 80% of the damage in a fight then we got a problem.

Thanks for the post guys appreciate it.

I hope things get resolved with PVP. I'll make sure to make the best out of norrath. Heck I might even start a Progression Raid Guild to enjoy the T5 Raid zones i never got to play.

Thanks

Magix
