Earlier this week, Justin mentioned that he was toying around in classic EverQuest, and he said he was playing through the tutorial. That surprised me because I have no memory of a tutorial back in the day, though it’s totally possible I’ve just forgotten all about it and I’m sure someone is going to the comments right now to refresh my memory! What I do remember is rolling an Enchanter in beta and getting super lost in pitch black tunnels somewhere on Odus (between the city and outskirts, maybe?) before I even killed a single newbie mob. ‘Course, back then your options were Ultima Online or that, so the setbacks didn’t matter: We were all determined to carve out a home in a truly 3-D MMORPG, and once we got there, we stayed for years. What was the worst MMO newbie experience that you powered through anyway?

He notes that this year marks eight years since he first took over the project, with numerous milestones having been reached despite this year being a non-expansion year for the game.
