I'm not the least bit surprised or concerned, even with respect to not knowing where your own country is. Take a survey of just about anything easy and some small percentage will fail. Moreover, when was the last time you needed to know where Iraq was other than to say its in the middle east? Afghan...

Perhaps this will clear up some of the confusion regarding the grid zones. EXP: They are designed for SOLO use only. Thats why the mobs have no classes. If you go there solo the exp will be fine. They are not designed to replace regular group xp runs, but rather, to give you something to do when you...

The phenomenon you are discussing is quaintly referred to by builders as "eq inflation." New builders have to make their items better than existing items or no one will do their zone. Thus with each new zone, old equipment is obviated, and new more powerful equipment is introduced. Either that or id...

The reason Level 10's can't kill Battle Mercs (a level 24 mob) is because there is now a level differential built into the thac0 calculation.

Toss out your old ideas

I have noticed that people are still convinced that bringing "to many people" rins the exp. It simply isn't true under the new combat engine. Take note of what the evils are doing (massive groups) and start taking on more people. You will cut through mobs quicker, and advance faster as a result. Cou...

Experience tables weren't touched. If there is a difference in leveling rate, which many seem to think their is, it's occuring because of something other than increased exp requirements or decreased mob exp since neither were changed. It's probably a result of the new combat engine.
