Hello All!

 

 I played from launch until about 2001/2002. I was an Illustrious Bard!  I've been wanting to play a bard class and figured hey why not try out the game that made me love bards to begin with! I have a few questions!

 

1. I have no idea what my old user name an password is so I will have to create a new account. Do I have to buy all the expansion or do I get them if I sub?

 

2. Is the game overall the same? I would like to make a sneaky bard type character. I remember have provocation music stealth hiding (another bard ability) stealing (maybe it was pick pocket I cant remember)

 

3. What server should I play on? I'm Central time USA!

 

4. My wife and another buddy are going to try it out with me! I read that there are some restrictions to chat while on the trial are we gonna have to sub to talk with each other?

 

5. Housing! So I remember that housing was pretty much find a place, place a house. Is it hard to buy a home because are the spots are taken? Can I have my house by the sea?

 

6. Balance. I remember doing a lot of dungeons as a bard with 2 other people. I would provoke the mobs or use some other bard stuff ( cant remember what its called). Is that still a player option?

 

7. PVP. As a new player/returning can I compete? Will I just get owned by people with epic gear? Also is it still full pvp loot!

 

Thanks for reading and/or answering! Cant wait to be a stealth bard again! DOWN LOAD FASTER!

Kind of but wiht lots and lots of tweaks.

 

3. What server should I play on? I'm Central time USA!

 

Most popular server seems to be Atlantic so go play there :)

 

4. My wife and another buddy are going to try it out with me! I read that there are some restrictions to chat while on the trial are we gonna have to sub to talk with each other?

 

Not sure on this

 

5. Housing! So I remember that housing was pretty much find a place, place a house. Is it hard to buy a home because are the spots are taken? Can I have my house by the sea?

 

There are certainly House spaces on the lesser populated shards - its nothing like what it used to be 

 

6. Balance. I remember doing a lot of dungeons as a bard with 2 other people. I would provoke the mobs or use some other bard stuff ( cant remember what its called). Is that still a player option?

 

Haha! I remember doing dungeons with bards! Um. To answer the question from what I gather with the rise in item properties and l337 magical armours and stuff a lot of dungeon mobs can be soloed if you use the right template. But where's the fun in that? Download the free client and find out for yourself. I always played a vanilla warrior and could survive all but the nastiest of monsters

 

7. PVP. As a new player/returning can I compete? Will I just get owned by people with epic gear? Also is it still full pvp loot!

 

In PVP a newbie will suck so much dirt its untrue. Dont even try it till you get to max stats.
