    i never understood why everyone looks back so fondly on pre-ren, i remember it being buggy with a messed up pvp system

    ren is really when pvp guilds got organized with the party system and poison blocking heals imo

    if i could choose a classic server era it would be right before pub 16 with no runics

    but id take anything i could get

    I would reactivate all of my accounts in a heartbeat. I could then play a pure mage (not those hally wielding noobs who die if you weaken them and the hally drops to backpack) and look rather decent. Ah, the good ole days. *gets depressed thinking about it*

    Oh how I used to be a murderous monster pre:ren....

    Hally mage or archer mage with the insta hit was glorious!

    That was when I could really just DROP people

    Ping ponging and rushes... Even with my 56k connection, I could kill people using cable with a well timed combo. Then they took out precasting and I couldnt finish anyone because of my slowness.

    Does anyone else remember M*N or Mystic Nomads?

    Or the brit cemetary server wars from that time?

    I've still got a spear that has paralyze charges on it. I tried using it once recently and the para did nothing if the target had any resist.

    Great thing about the old para is that if you got hit with it from a weapon, you stayed parad until the timer was over regardless of getting hit or not...that is if Im remembering it right. As we all know...it's been a few years since then ;)

    Hopefully they will do it, since that other game that is suppose to offer FFA PvP and full loot that is suppose to be released this month is starting to look like it will be a total pile of crap. If they do it however, im not sure id want to since EA refuses to give me my account details, and tell me they can't find my account on record, which I know is total BS.

    P.S. I :heart: you Bloodstone!

    I haven't been on the forums in awhile, I wonder who is still around? I see Lynk, is that the same one from M^D, that I have so many fond memories of playing with?

    That would be me Epsilon. Man, M^D was a long time ago.

    Actually I am playing again but for now LoW is still retired. If they made a Classic shard, I would definitely make the move and probably bring back the guild or at least form up in a guild with a lot of old friends, old friend :)

    For now I am enjoying my time with some like minded individuals in 2.0 and if you're looking for something as close to that old LoW experience in today's PvP scene, I suggest you guys contact Lynk.

    Eps, you should come back too. I know you said you can't retrieve your account but if you really want to play again hit me up on ICQ and we'll figure something out.
