Everquest Versus World Of Warcraft






     Everquest (EQ) and World of Warcraft (WoW) are the two giants’ massive multiplayer role-playing games inside on the net games world. World of Warcraft is Blizzard Entertainment’s initial MMO and Everquest is a sequel to heavyweight MMO champ quest. They have their similarities and their differences. Both these video games have learned their lessons from the previous generation MMOs.

Questing:
You can get a list of quests that are active and their status in both the games. WoW uses Simple, but effective exclamation marks over their head. Once the quest is taken, exclamation mark changes to a question mark. EQ uses Non-Player Characters or NPCs. NPCs make requests to the players next to them by actually talking. If the need arises, they will ask for help. Monsters will taunt you vocally in combats. They have also used some celebrities for these voiceovers. They both use instancing for the higher levels of the game. If there are more players are playing in a zone then your computer will be slower in those parts when compared to the others. You can experience this in WoW but not as frequently as in EQ. Finding out the level of a mob is easier in Everquest, where as it is a bit hard in World of Warcraft.

Characters:
WoW has 9 classes and 8 races. The important thing to note here is that the classes are not available to every game. You can also find some unique classes in the Alliance or Horde side. You have a very few choices when coming to the appearance like hairstyle, skin color, gender and so on. Most of the players think it as a limited selection. In the beginning few levels you are bound meet twins, this happens until your gear sets you apart.
EQ has 24 subclasses, 12 classes, 4 archetypes, and 16 races. The subclasses for good races and evil races are different. Therefore, you have respectable but limited options. You can position and customize the mouth, nose, ears, and eyes of you avatar. You can also decorate with accessories like earings and glasses. This character creation system in MMORPG helps you when you encounter the double.

Graphics:
Graphics in both of these games are excellent but different in artistic styles. World of Warcraft is like an animated movie, in which the environment is tremendously detailed. You cannot find anything dazzling in this game. This is the best MMORPGs we have. The common complaint that lodges around is that there is not enough integrated ways for customizing the GUI. EverQuest is much more realistic when compared to World of Warcraft. Familiar things like bear and human beings are accurately proportioned. It has gorgeous scenery and impressive facial expressions. The system requirements for Everquest are higher than the other one.

One of the biggest differences in EQ and WoW quest systems is WoW is friendly for a single player. The players do not have to rely on other player for reaching the highest levels in WoW, where as it gets tougher in EQ after you reach level 20. Fortunately, grouping tools are available to help players socialize.
