My favorite part of Ring of Scale was the return of CACTUSES!  Seriously, I was so disappointed when there were none in Empires of Kunark.

I put my leet mspaint skills to work to capture a moment from my guilds cactus raid:

RoS was my return to EQ after an extended absence and my favorite part so far has been the chance to see some old favorite zones reimagined.

RoS! Short but sweet. The group content really went by far too fast, but the raid content is pretty solid. Tier 3 gets kind of tedious, but Tier 2 is mostly fun (and 2.1/2.3 are great for parsing!)

Also... for an RoS image... I was looking through my pictures folder and for some reason I have this:



This is definitely related, in some way, to the Ring of Scale expansion, but I could not tell you why or how.

Dunno much about it since I don't have it :) I hope to buy it when it comes on sale in Nov and am all ready to hit 106. It seems very raid related but I am sure there is plenty for this lone ranger to forage! Or new armor to make!

This is Aunt Fan (Fannie) and this is uncle Art = Fan Art.  :-[

Hated the fact the final raid was possibly the easiest raid in the entire expansion. Anticlimactic.

Favorite part of RoS is howling stones.  One of my all time fav zones!

I really missed OT. Some of the best and worst memories were made in OT 1.0. It is a treat to return to OT to battle out against new foes.

For our guild we've been able to be raiding current content for most of the year. While it's only been two raids , the diamonds have helped our gearing path greatly. So that's been a very nice bonus. Sathirs tomb is a very fun zone also, I just wish it was triple the size. All in all I've enjoyed this expansion very much.

I like Ring of Scale because it's more kunark and my favorite part is the VP item quests, can't go wrong with OT hammer 2.0.(Also bard ivu!)

Ring of Scale had dragons and sarnaks as the bad guys. What's not to like about that?

My favorite part of RoS is full sets of crafted gear that's actually decent again. Especially for alts, this is such a time saver over hunting down individual drops for all of them.

RoS has been a lot of fun. Glad tradeskills got some love and have enjoyed all the raids.

I definitely loved the overall difficulty of some of the raids the most.  I'm lookin' at you, 2-2!!! ... even though it gave me nightmares for months (see attached masterpiece)



Excited to see what gets thrown at us next~

I love the quest items from Veeshan's Peak.

My least favorite thing (along with Skyfire drake bombardments):

RoS is great, unless you want to make armor without doing EoK. Or a bunch of other stuff. But I did all that EoK stuff, so RoS is great.
