    What channel are the procs listed in? I checked all "You deal damage/affect someone" etc stuff, and I didn't see the procs. Not only that, but in the enemy's lifebar on the right the debuffs never ever appeared, so I assume it never procs.

    I dunno I don't have my combat log on, maybe the proc is a damage effect not a dot? So when it procs it just goes off and hurts the mob? Outside of that if its that level 49 cloth chest, it could be just not proccing since that item was recently added so there could be a glitch with it?

    Yes, it's the cloth chest that deals a single shot of damage, so either it doesn't work or it only shows "You slash the enemy for X" and I can't tell from my normal slashes. But the pants are a DoT, so the enemy should be cursed with it. I'll see if today's patch stealth-fixed it. If not, I'll search the forums and see.

    Go find a bunch of low level things, aggro them, and stop attacking. And just let them hit the crap out of you and see if they ever die or take dmg from it procc'ing.

    Assassin is very enjoyable, if you want to see a lot of fatalities they are the class to pick. Most of your combos one shot or severely wound a regular enemy.

    Heh. Went up to that monster right at the start (after you fight the slaver), waved my rusty nails around and it dropped dead in a second.

    You'll have the same problem 70-80 on a PvE server. There isn't enough content to go around.

    While I would argue the PVP in this game is quite broken, there is still fun to be had. I wouldn't play this game on a PvE server. There is something about just having the chance of someone attacking you fun and keeps you on your toes.

    And how does a guild lock down content on a server? Can you not just switch instances?

    They lock all instances anyway, I've heard.

    Don't get me wrong, I love the PvP in that game, and the danger it implies, and wouldn't want to play on a PvE server. I just think that spawn-camping, ganking lowbies after they've walked for a long time and are far from any respawn point or locking down an entire levelling spot isn't fun.

    It's not that I'm against all PvP, just the parts I find dickish. I don't understand why there are so many people yelling at guys like me and telling us to go back to WoW or to PvE servers. There's a huge difference between the "bad" behavior and no PvP at all.

    I dunno the level 70-80 disputes were settled with PVP. I dunno how the hell you'd do it in PVE.

    It might be more "mature" but I have a feeling the EQ-esk community is gone. By that I mean people don't take turns at spawns any more =P.

    Also, I dunno where you got the "dominates the level 70 content and will not let other people quest there." It was most likely from me ranting at 79 that the bastards were camping the best two grind spots and monopolizing it.

    There were still many other places I could have grinded at. It might have taken 2-3 more hours longer for me to level to 80, but I was just pissed off at the attitude of the certain guild. I don't want methods in place to prevent this. I want to get even =P.

    And no, its almost impossible for them to prevent you from doing most quests. Besides the cistern/main system which is uncampable by higher levels for the most part now, I don't think i've failed a quest because of someone. I might have been delayed once or twice, but failed? No.

    The death penalty is also such a joke that I don't get why the hell people would go "OMG YOU KILLED ME YOU @!#*!#(*&."

    Pvp is used to settle disputes on a pvp server. The gankfests come from douches who WANT to be douches. The people in those guilds WANT to be KoS from everyone. When the criminal system(whatever its called) comes into place, they'll probably turn into a criminal right away just for the thrill of it.

    Oh lastly: If you ever decide to join a pvp server, we have 80s now. A lot of us would be more than happy come to your aid right away if an 80 is harassing you =P.

    Christ the recent patch made the game buggy as hell for me.

    - Every 45 minutes or so I need to restart the game because of the memory leak (minimap/map goes grey and the next zone load will freeze)

    - Ping climbs to 9999 and boots me out quite often now

    - Textures gain small glowing circles on them, kinda like leopard spots... but on things that shouldn't have leopard spots (my rhino)

    - Sometimes I get a freezeframe for about 10 seconds. When I come back there is a message about an error being detected and a report being sent.

    - Other times I get a freezeframe that changes the screen to look like EQ1... or maybe an impressionist painting. Either way, it's grounds for a restart of the game.

    It's pretty often. Make sure to use your combos, pretty much only a boss I fought 2 lvls higher then me survived past the 3 Combos I keep up under alt + 1,2,3. So keep using your 3 best combos, everything dies, and you will have soul shards. Though, they seem to degrade a bit too fast for me. But after fighting 3 mobs, and you still don't get one? Make sure you are actually in Unholy Stance and not Poison and make sure it's actually triggered and not a GUI malfunction, and most certainly be using combos!

    As for PvP vs. PvE question, I think the best thing I did was get a toon to 28 on PvE, then try PvP. At this point I know where everything is in Tortage, I know all the zones well, all the spawn points. I don't have to look for specific objectives, and get pissed when I have to start over when I get ganked. I know where the feathers are, so I could care less if I get set on fire before I get there.

    I can do the questing in the PvP zone, but that has almost become 2nd fiddle. I'm really just looking for people to tangle with. I feel bad though, being a rogue, I kinda have to "gank" you. You won't see me coming and then you will be dead.......that's just kinda what I do!

    Though, I do enjoy having conversations with my victims afterwards (when they're not being dicks).
