EQ 1, various things in the Kunark & Velious expansion. I love snow & ice in all forms, so Velious in particular was visually tailor-made for me. Additionally, this was when EQ was at its peak of immersiveness and openendedness; you made the game what you wanted, it wasn't the raid treadmill that it became two years afterward when Sony/SOE murdered it, and which WoW has unfortunately copied.

Some specifics:
- Selling all on me at T2! The bazaar really ruined what I found to be a fun part of the game. Ironically, the bazaar helped me to become super-rich. You know that bazaar-bot (every server had one or two) who had all the ultra-rare items (AoN, holgresh beads, etc.) for insane prices? That was me. I ended up with nearly 10 million pp when I quit around the Gates release. I'd have traded it in an instant for EC-mart though. Good ole days.
- Kithicor at night. WTF?!?!?!?!?! :p
- Quadkiting. My druid was my first character and I learned it on the butcherblock dwarves... lol. I also quadkited those druid / ranger type NPCs in Qeynos hills, along with the 2 guards in front of SFG. Later on in uh... what was that zone between Skyshrine and Sirens' Grotto? Wow, it's been a long time. I'm levelling a mage in WoW now AoE grinding, and it's brought back some fun memories. I was actually quadkiting BB dwarves on 9/11 when I heard about the attacks, it's etched in my memory, right down to where in the zone I was (south part).
- Working on the prayer shawl, first on my druid, later on my monk because I enjoyed the quest line so much. Then (after a hiatus from the game) on my shaman and SK. This was one of my favorite parts of Velious.
- Kael, place was just fun. So huge. The giants were resistant as hell though, made soloing iffy.
- Killing WW dragons at 65 on my shaman. $$$$$$$$. Shroom king in seb too.
- Sebilis groups. I enjoyed the other Kunark dungeons as well, but it was hard to find people willing to go.
- Epic quests, these rocked. It's sad WoW has nothing like them, but then WoW's lead developer is so stupid he named his Everquest character "Tigole Bitties", so it's no great surprise.
- Jumping off the IC <-> EW bridge in Velious

My early days in Everquest. I had seen nothing like it. The world was new, challenging, and the graphics were great ;]

I must say, EQ did something with sprites I've never seen since. Some of those spell effects WERE cool.

Many of us played good MMORPGs. Don't get me wrong, I'm playing WoW currently. But when Sony killed EQ1 back in 2002 the genre died. WoW copying its post-death raidfest style was sorta like pissing on its grave.

In Everquest, there are tons of fond memories. One was spending months to get the 'epic item' for my class, something that involved playing with hundreds of people.

8v8 and 8vZerg were fantastic.

I really hope they can land an improved system of this in Warhammer.

The most fun ive ever had in any MMO was PvP in DAOC, whether it was in darkness falls, or in the frontier.
