HI HI ^_^
This is my very first time playing EverQuest 2. I literally just finished downloading and installing it so I haven't done ANYTHING in-game just yet because i wanted to get approval from those that know the game best (that would be you guys :p) on which Server to go on, which Class is good for newcomers and which Guild to join and things like that. Now I've heard of EverQuest, but never bothered to download it til just now because...well I heard it went free to play so I figured that's a good time as any to give it a try. Now I have a few questions:

1) Which Class is suited for players that are new to the world of EverQuest?
2) Are the Expansions for it a must-have or aren't needed at all?
3) How is the in-game community? Are everyone a bunch of perfectionists or is everyone casual and friendly?

4) Which Server is best for newcomers?

I think that's all the questions I have for now, so I'll be waiting patiently for replies before I do anything in-game so I don't somehow ***** something up o_o

Haha I've already bumped into a problem. I'm a Level 1 Warlock by the name of Vaedian and I am on the Everfrost server. For some reason my camera is zoomed all the way in and I don't know how to fix it. I like to be able to play a game and be ale to see my character, but that can't happen if the camera is zoomed all the way in. Where in the Options menu can I fix that?

Should be able to roll your scroll wheel back and zoom out.

Still running around a bit lost in-game, and just noticed that I'm currently on a Bronze membership so I'm am like severely limited to what I can do in-game, such as chatting in the channel for lower levels such as myself, limited to creating very few Classes too >.<

Bronze membership is the free one. You might consider the one-time purchase of a Silver membership, it lets you breathe a little :)

Go to Walmart. Their $15 station cards are worth $20 station cash.

I live in Brooklyn, NY..there's no Wal-Mart near me :(
Target is like two blocks from my place so that'll have to do.

I read that link Cyliena, once being a subbed member I was automatically given a Silver level membership. I made a Dwarf back in the day, he still exists but will I be unable to access him unless I go Gold? It has me confused.

Have you tried to access him? Without looking, I'm guessing you might have to unlock his race or class if you choose not to go gold.

Wouldn't he be grandfathered in? I thought that any character created before it went F2P would be grandfathered.

Your character would be grandfathered in if they existed before December 2011. However if your equipment was Legendary or Fabled it'll all get pushed to overflow as a Silver. http://eq2.zam.com/story.html?story=28427 is more applicable for people returning to the game. :)
