Hiya all, I came back to the game after 3 loooong years. Let's see, the last major in-game event I can remember is the Cloud of Darkness fight when it was still new, that's how far back I'm talking when I say it's been a while for me and I'm sure I must be heavily gimped out the ***. My big questions are, is anything still being done in major full-alliance groups, or is it all almost entirely solo play now? Also, when is Fenrir the most active, since I'm on the East Coast of the U.S and am curious about the current best times to be on for shouts and other stuff?

Good Morning. I must tell you that the server is mostly dead unless youre in a linkshell. I personally like it because there's never a wait/competition. You'll also find the AH to be pretty bare.

Great server for farming/crafting. Not so much for selling though.

Kal, Hova, thanks for the info. I'd kinda like to stay on Fenrir as there's still some people I know on there. I'll probably give it a week or two, see what happens in that time, and then decide whether or not I change servers from there.

Shouts are dead. Most stuff is done lowman or in social linkshells.

If you take away Asura the game is pretty much dead. It isn't just one server it is every server.

The three usual suspects I used to run around with were Jaydash, Porthos and Ywrach, and I know all three are still active on Fenrir. It wasn't a big LS I was in by any means, but we had been active back then and, even with some gimp gears we still managed to roll most content.

Sunday morning NA time and through the day, after JP midnight, is usually the busiest time of each server. Especially post update.

I mean we are very successful on fenrir; and theres not a bone in my body that would go to Asura?

I read that wrong. I think to agree with you mostly odin seems abit more lively than most, but Asura is tons.

Guess I had nothing to worry about, the gang's all on Fenrir still, and an older buddy of ours who stopped playing a couple years before I did came back also. They even brought me up to speed on all the stuff I'd missed and we ran around together. Just like old times. Of course, until they decide to sacrifice the lone elvaan in our group to increase the drop rate of items. Long story, that is. Don't question it.
