Ever miss having guilds? Overwhelmed by the plethora of options? Just a place to reminisce about a time when things were simpler, more dependent and very different from now. When plants were harvested by druids and dragons were extremely rare. When credits cost 3000 gold.. What do you miss and what has gotten better?

    I do not miss guilds. They were good on paper, but in practice the people that ran most of them suuuucked.

    I miss not having to make complicated scripted tables with healing preferences and being able to compete with a simple system of triggers and aliases. I miss interaction between cities like collecting shards and competing outside of raids and I miss raids without complicated partytell systems.

    I miss not everything being so dependent on having lots of credits and being super powerful.

    BUT I also like the new freedom that Achaea offers now, though there is less intrigue. I love that there are always new ideas and everything is constantly expanding and exploring even without player interaction is already worthwhile.

    I really miss the (Cyrenian) Lumeni and everything associated with that, including a lot of the storylines around that time, i.e. Theodelinda as well as personal storylines.

    I miss the Sartai wars. Everything after that era was a detriment to the game.

    Yes, this. Jay was awesome and had some of my earliest fondest memories of Achaea with Clementius around.

    The boon where someone hesitated and got a large blob of "um" was excellent.

    I miss the early days before automated curing and definitely automated offense, back when everything was manual and because of this artefacts and min/maxing wasn't necessary.  I miss the days where guilds could keep their skills a secret and there was a lot more depth to the skills.  And I miss the game before clans and we were forced to interact with one another only through in game and in character means.

    Those were after.  I played before artefacts were even a thing (the first artefacts were unique only available in auctions and the first one was with gold not credits).  No doubt skills and artefacts were added in the past without any balance checks which is why we laugh at the absurdity of them today.

    Yes, they added abilities before they even coded cures.  The initial cure for paralysis was to RELAX

    I miss the Divine being more around too. I remember Pentharian, Mithraea, Miramar and Lorielan visiting Fish street and walking around. Or Phaestus appearing out of nowhere to flirt with the girls. Now it seems they're just there for announcements/ceremonies or to say stuff in ct. :( I still appreciate them being around though.
