What Do I Do If I Just Returned to the Game?

If you are just returning to EverQuest after being gone for some time you will probably find a lot has changed, especially if it has been a couple of years or more. It can be quite daunting and you may feel like a "noob."

First of all - welcome back! You will find a lot of old timers as well as newer players that will welcome you back and be glad to help with information and tips. (Occasionally you may get some inconsiderate remarks back, but ignore those people. Some people don't think before they answer.)

If your equipment is a few years old it is only good for nostalgia and maybe selling to vendors or turning in for tribute (with the possible exception of items with clickable effects). The defiant armor that you can loot off "trash" monsters is almost certainly better than what you have. Each new expansion introduces increasingly more powerful gear, and you will be surprised when you see what you can get these days.

You can find a lot of helpful information on this website as well as others dedicated to EverQuest.
