Everquest 2: Off To The Kylong Plains

In the comments for a previous post, EQ Grandmaster Bhagpuss of Inventory Full recommended:

At 90 you have most of the game to choose from if you Chrono. You could happily start at the dock in kylong Plains, mentored to, say, 65 or 70 and then work through the whole of Kunark. Or you could Chrono to 75 or 80 and do Moors of Ykesha. There are literally dozens of possibilities.

I decided I would leave the Commonlands and travel to the Kylong Plains to see what the game is like at the top.  One of the problems with boosting a low level character in a game you don’t know is that you have no clue where anything is in the world or how to get there.

There I am on the world map but I don’t see the Kylong Plains.   On Ten Ton Hammer I found  “The Kylong Plains Docks are accessible from the Antonica and Commonlands docks via boat.

Checking the Commonlands Map, I don’t see anything along the coastlines I can identify as a docks.  There’s a “guild bell” listed, which doesn’t sound right, but I head for it anyway since it isn’t far from my location.

Luckily this was just the place. 

And, yes, there was a boat to the Kylong Plains.

I’m excited to have arrived, but I have much to do before I can head out for new adventures.

I have only one toolbar row, and I’m certain I need to put the higher level skills on the new toolbar set.  I need to Google how to add toolbars, then how to get skills onto the toolbars.  You can’t just drag them over and replace what’s there.  You have to empty the slot, then move a higher skill onto it.  I’ve got quite a few new skills and advanced versions of the few I had at level 20.

I’ll need to read all of the descriptions and set them up in the most useful pattern/rotation I can figure out.

My bags runneth over.  If I have some nice higher level gear I need to equip it, and sell the old stuff.  I need to dump quite a bit out of my inventory one way or another before moving on.

I better look up Bhagpusses phrase Chrono.  I was thinking before I headed out the area would auto level me down to the area like Guild Wars 2 and Wow’s Broken Isles do, but unlikely. 

Still, I made it to Dreg’s Landing, Kylong Plains, and Adventure beckons once I sort things out.
