You are boring me.

I insist on at least one new post every 3 days or I will ensure that you all have to raid Uqua for the rest of your natural lives.

lol ...I love how he used the absolute worst possible punishment: raiding Uqua.

I kid you not, that solid month of banging heads against Uqua in 2004 is to this day why I don't raid anymore ....it burned me out completely! I would sometimes raid for fun in other games ....and you should have heard the reactions in vent. when I would describe Uqua.

Uqua, when it was first released and we weren't overgeared ...was so tough. I don't know, maybe you guys faced harder stuff after I left ...but, I honestly wasn't sure we'd ever make it through that zone ..lol.


And...holy shit ..that was over 10 years ago!!

Uqua was extremely challenging for its time.

But, it was nothing compared to events that followed.

The difference was that Uqua lasted hours and punished inattention severely at a time when that was not the skillset of most EQ players. You'd have been SHOCKED at how much of a machine we became from about mid-2006 to about 2008 when all our DPS quit at once, resulting in about a 6 month slowdown.

At one point we were 20th-ish on all servers. Not bad considering we were in the 60s or 70s in 2005 if I recall correctly.

Performer was the one where you had to hotkey all the different phrases and have audio triggers for any one of about a billion trigger phrases.

"So I told the halfling, I'd pick it!" or something like that but multiplied by a billion.

Then at the end that nasty spider spawned and one group tried to handle her and we all went WAAAAA and ran around in circles then reijo did loot.

Uqua haha. That's what did me in. It's one thing to be crazy hard, it's another to be crazy hard and super drab and ugly. Seemed like just about every boss used the same model as a trash mob just scaled up.
