My account is closing in on 7 years, this might be a dumb question but does anyone know what the reward will be for 7th year vets?

Yeah I'm less than 90 days off from the 7 year mark as well. I hope they don't hold off until the expansion comes out to give em out, like they did with the 6 year rewards. Nothing's been announced that I know of, perhaps this thread could be a place to make some suggestions. My suggestions.... Maybe new housing, similar to the skyblade skiff. Extra character slot(s).

I am a little sceptical about long term veterans getting anything worthwhile, but hey maybe Smokejumper can prove me wrong SMILEY

A new housing option is a good idea, although not something everyone will appreciate.

I think it would be cool to see an item clickable from inventory that grants a groupwide (maybe even raidwide!) buff for a set time period usable once a day. Could include a choice of what buff you might want (bonus experience buff, potency, crit bonus, stats, resists)

I heard you get a free bronze level subscription to a new EQ2x server of your choice.

How about housing (like the skiff) but IN ADDITION to your other housing.

I want the ability to actually sit in a chair and lay in a bed.  make it an item that's only usable every 4 hours if you must,to keep it from being OP'd.

Pretty sure you'll be getting these animations.  ttobey has been discussing it in other threads.  It'll be a /command, not an item.

I haven't checked since the GU, but how do you check your account age now?  Since the Details tab is gone on the new combined Inv + Chr window.

I'd love a special housing reward.  Perhaps a modified T1 guild hall of some sort (amenities would be sweet as well!)?  One that isn't out in the middle of BFE would be nice.  =P  

Other ideas:

- An all in one crafting station for your home.

- A clickable teleporter (choice of druid or wizard) that you can carry on your person.

- A rez stick on a one or two hour timer. (great for those times when the priests are lazy and forget to give out feathers, etc.)

- An 80% run speed ground mount.

- A 7 Year Vet cloak with a 10% exp bonus to adventuring and tradeskills.

I'm coming up on 7 years myself and I'd have to say I think the special house is a great idea. Although I think it's highly unlikely.

What I would really appreciate is 2 more character slots. After 7 years, all my character slots are all taken!

A 90%,  4 pegasus-pulled chariot mount! Black/red, flames, spikes on the wheels, nightmare chariot. With the ability to switch at will between ground based movement and flying for the next expansion.

I would love a CoV that works (currently averaging one success for every five attempts!)

and

additional character slots (come on...we know it can be done!)

The t-shirt is looking pretty attractive though.

in your inventory window you switch to misc. tab ( there's also combat tab, general tab) on the bottom of misc. window you see account age

I would hope long term vets would get good, even great rewards. We have been paying our money to them month after month. We are here loyally. Does SOE make more money off the people that try for a month or 2 and quit or the ones that stay year after year...hmmmmm. Not rocket science.

Maybe make it more positive for us veterans to help out newbies....I remember standing in newbie zones in eq1 and handing out armor and a few coins to new players. I would like to see that done more in eq2. Now there could be servers doing this already but i haven't seen it on the 2 servers I play on. I used to do it more....think i might again. I used to randomly mail items and spell scrolls to the appropriate classes at the right levels. JFTHOI. Nice gestures can't make things bad.

That worked in EQ1 because items didn't have lvl requirements, nor did the buffs. i always enjoyed making a little extra coin offering spirit of the Eagle or ports to people, or as you said hand out items that were of no use to you, but a great upgrade to a new player.

Unfortunately at lower levels the best gear is usually mastercrafted and even as a T9 master Armorer it takes me pretty much the same ammount of time to craft a T2 armor set as it does to craft a set of lvl 80 or 90 BG armor. Now if i was actually able to craft as if i really was a master armorer, ie craft an entire T2 set in one crafting process, i'd maybe consider handing out stuff just for fun, but as it is now it's too time consuming for my taste.

Wish list for 7 year vet reward -

Extra character slot(s) - wish it would, but will probably not ever happen

Mansion of the Dedicated Ticket - Small Guild Hall size shared appartment -rent free (base rent anyway) housing that all characters on an account can access with some of the amenities of a real GH at added rent rates people coming to the house that are not on the account may not use amenities at all, but may visit and buy from broker boxes. Each character may have their own housing as well as account access to their own mini-hall, complete with recall option and transportation if they wish to pay rent or use as a "Clubhouse" for free. They could be set in neutral areas so anyone could visit or get to them, for instance Paineel would be a good place, as would Terens Grasp - This would be AWESOME! and again probably never happen....

And for the super wish.... One per account claimable item, Instant pop one toon to max level with max AA... Hey if they're WISHES why waste em on something lame right??

Other than that, I think getting flying mounts before the expansion drops that no one else can get would be bomb..... I am thinking your choice of Clockwork Dragon or Clockwork Pegasus in you choice of SIlver, Gold, Black, White, Pink, or Rust colored on each would be super sweet.... GDI!! Make this happen Sony!!

I know it's COMPLETELY unrealistic... but I'd love to see customization options only available to people who have been with the game for a certain length of time. Like perhaps a hairstyle per race/sex or something like that. Something that REALLY really stands out. Again, not realistic, but hey a girl can dream.

I have some realistic ideas too, but I've shared them before. SMILEY

I was thinking along these lines:

  • A set of AA potions, because they've never been rewarded as a veteran reward
  • An unlimited duration bauble that doubles experience gained.
  • A prefix title as they haven't been awarded before, such as "The Insane"
  • Personal Wizard Portal and Druid Ring summoner

Also a one time Veteran reward consisting of one of the following (player chooses):

  • Character Copy Token
  • Character Transfer Token
  • Norrathian Witness Protection Pack
  • Witness Protection Pack

Also a free account flag of Sentinel's Fate, if for some strange reason the person doesn't have it yet managed to be a subscriber for that long.

Actually, on top of what everyone else says, I think I really really could use another character slot as a veteran. :/
