I miss power hour...

    Don't get me wrong, skill gain is easy enough now, so it's not really needed I suppose. I just miss things like the bonewall and 8x8ing on the seas.

    Skill gain today reminds me of skill gain pre-uor, just sit in your house and macro up your skills... powerhour and 8x8 allowed for some interaction at least. Pirates and whatnot. So, I guess I'm just curious... Does anyone else here miss power hour and 8x8 like I do?

    i only 8*8 one skill and that was fishing then again i bean fishing so much after that i kinda cant say i regret doing that

    i guess for skill gain on fishing espetialy 8*8 was a good way to get it then again i got gm so i dont mind not going to gm it again unless by some divine power i lose my gm skill in it

    Well I don't miss 8x8, power hour was alright though. I do, however, miss the interaction I had while doing both. I loved the BK Wall... it was a great way to meet people and with PH once your time was up you normally had formed a hunting group and had something to do after the wall.

    Interaction? Power hour? Were you actually there? Power hours was, "Sorry can't talk right now it's my power hour!" Sorry, power hour was alright for antisocials such as myself, but it didn't do much for the game's sense of community...

    Was I there? lol. Obviously you don't get what I mean, the bk wall in trammel? I had some pretty good conversations there and I always did my 8x8ing in fel, the added risk of pirates made it all that much more exciting. More interaction than nowadays... I sit in my house and work my skills. No different than pre-uor aside from the fact I don't have to worry about being eq'd to death.

    So, was I there? Obviously I was not.

    Ah, wasn't intending to troll you, I just remember the power hour as being a fairly antisocial occasion. I didn't do the bk thing, and of course I had a tendency to have something come up that always screwed up my power hour anyway, so it generally wasn't much use to me...

    It's all good. I only thought about this because Ive spent a good amount of my time since i returned a month or so ago to sitting in a house trying to get a few chars somewhat done.

    To the fellow who said they don't like powergaming; I don't like it much either, but for some activities I take part in within the game, having a finished char is sadly a must. Trust me, I miss the days when you could go out and fight with an adept mage and do well. That was over 10 years ago though and sadly doesn't work now.

    Aye, and sadly I'll be training on a golem within a day or two. (Training while at the computer of course!) Hence why Id rather be at the bone wall instead of Luna.

    I've been golem training at Luna the past few days and I've had quite a bit of interaction with the other trainers there.

    The bone knight wall was fun back in the day
    *edit*
    I think they should change melee skill gain back the way it worked then. Atleast switching combat skills wouldn't be so time consuming
