    Default Remember When...

    Remember when...

    • To TR was to delete your character and start over.
    • When the "Ice Shard" was the most sought after item in the game.
    • When a +5 mithril small shield was a very rare drop.

    And:
    • When dying in a quest caused XP debt.
    • The Curse spell had no expiration, and would persist even after completing and leaving a quest.
    • When any Stat hitting 0 caused death (thanks Waterworks Spider venom traps!).
    • When we could only have 4 enhancements at a time.
    • When the Marketplace Tent would "eat" players, not letting them leave.



    Ah... the fun we had.

    AND...
    • You could count the number of Vorpal weapons on the server with 1 hand.
    • Having 400 HP at cap was relatively good.

    1. Level cap was 10
    2. Blindness was permanent so you often saw people wandering around in the harbor begging for someone to cast Remove Blindness on them
    3. Paralyzing weapons (very rare) actually put the blue rings of Hold Person effect on monsters and you did a boat-load more melee damage to them
    4. Wounding of Puncturing Rapiers were the absolute KINGS of DPS!

    - helpless monsters took all hits as crits. (Heavy pick build were great back then)
    - you sometimes randomly took insane fall damage (800+) while on the floor, with FF on.
    - Harry in the Shroud was shy and had trouble facing people.
    - alts were relevant.
    - people were "sneak humping" each other.
    We want more Monster Manuals.

    1. Peolple farmed the threnal entry area quests for the best non raid loot in the game
    2. Pale Masters farmed collectables to turn in to the Vampire NPC in House J for Cause Serious Wound potions
    3. Throwing weapons and missiles were only found in stacks of 20.
    4. Sorrowdusk, Threnal, and Tempest Spine were End Game Content.
    5. Purge the Fallen Shrine would get completely filled with Cloud kills.
    6. Logging out in a Tavern to erase XP dept.
    7. You actually needed a rogue to complete water works part 2 due to the acid damage of the long acid tunnel.(hard and Elite difficulties)
    8. Titan Raid was un-winnable for several months after it was released.


    And I took these screenshots
