Two days ago, EverQuest went down for a patch. In that patch, Firiona Vie was patched to have a perma xp bonus. 50% extra to be exact. This is the first of the changes that are coming for the old server. The developers, I assume.. want to save a dying server. I started on Firiona Vie way back in 2004 when I started playing EverQuest for the first time. I remember making a wood elf ranger by the name of Hecate (I was really into reading about gods/goddesses back them). Anyway, she never got past level 35 until I either switched to the Stromm server or started playing Guild Wars. I forget. But I did quit for a few months to play Guild Wars with Blake. Eventually after a few months, I came back. That old familiar itch came back and I just had to play. This time I came back to Firiona Vie and rerolled into a high elf cleric by the name of Mewwy. She’s level 75 with close to 800 aa’s at the moment. The guild I was in kept trying to push me to end content, but I refused. “We need more knowledgeable clerics, instead of stupid mercs.” They said.
Anyway, my point is… Next month or February, they’re allowing transfers into Firona Vie for free (I’m assuming to save the server from completely dying). And the permanent xp bonus, I’m also assuming is to entice people to start coming back or having people transfer over. I’ve been wanting to come back to Firiona Vie for so long. I miss my old friends. I love the fa
