Lonely in Chessie

    I have returned home after many a year only to find it has been all but abandoned. Where are the teeming legions surrounding the banks spamming endlessly? Where are the mobs of grey robed people fleeing from destard? Where are the endlessly stocked vendors and their unbelievable selection?

    Is there anyone left in this hollow shard? Am I just missing the main congregation point of people?

    Welcome Back!! How long have you been gone? The people are all at the Luna bank for the most part. The largest percentage of vendors are also located in Luna, though there are still some out there that are not. I do not see alot of people at Destard anymore, though I usually run into a couple every once in a while trying their luck at the greater dragons.

    Welcome back, the game has changed a lot. As the previous poster said (which just happens to be my wife and she rules too) the bank hangout is now in Luna. I miss the old days when WBB was crawling with people but those days are long gone. Destard and many of the old dungeons have been left for greener pastures. There is a lot of new mobs to fight that are more challenging and give better loot then the old dungeons. Many people go to ilshenar for paragons or go to Doom in malas. Thy abyss is popular along with the peerless in different places. The population is there, we moved from Lake Austin a few months ago, that shard was nearly dead but I assure you that chessy is not.

    The chessy forums are pretty quiet except for the news and em event postings.

    If you are use to Luna you will find not many bank sitters. Reason why is because no one is stupid enough to sit at Luna bank due to the EM spawning monsters that kill everyone. I think I have some screen shots somewhere. Seems Luna was a prime target and guards wont whack their monsters so it makes the shard look empty and abandon..... thus making Chesapeake look well... empty. :thumbdown:
