Long time no see Drak.
Some MIGHT remember me from a while back. I drop in from time to time to keep up with old friends and guildmates...loved this thread!

Anyway, my picks are mostly based on certain acts i have witnessed that really made me think..."wow! this guy is good or knows his stuff". Maybe they just impressed me, oh well...

Pally - Chakka / Ztink
Healer - Gragon
Ment - BJ / Tanya
Thief - Bara
Barb - Firewolf
MA - Elessar / TKD
FM - Arkon

Now to start the real fun.
In addition to the above players i have known several others that maybe weren't limited to a class but influenced Drakkar more then any others. Each of these names have extensive stories behind them in Drak that stick out to me.

In no particular order:

Duke / Aurelious
Frozboz
Odin
Flagg
Nubrigul
Piledriver
Lazuras / DW / "to many others to name"
Pug

I KNOW these 8 turned Drak inside out one time or another!! And only 50% of that was IN the game :) Rest was in the forums!

Hi everyone.. My opinions from a while back.


Best Barbarian. Piledriver__FURY Easy for everyone to hate him because of his vigor for the game, but along with myself and Grundeg, one of the co-founders of FURY who had their stretch of dominance around the time of the release of Cobrahn. To this day, Pile was the greatest raid leader I've had the pleasure of playing with in several different games.


Best Mentalist. Blackjack__RIP Easy choice here. He was well ahead of the curve back when a skill 15 mentalist actually was an amazing accomplishment. He was instrumental in the discovering of Cobrahn along with FURY and Blood, and TKD.


Best MA. TKD_Jihad Yep, a lifer FURY and RIP choosing a Jihad! but well deserved in my opinion. I rarely was afforded the opportunity to hunt with him, but when Cobrahn was released, he was attempting to solo Ningi when we were dying in a group. I do not think he succeeded before we did, but that is an argument for another time. Obviously Elessar deserves honorable mention here for his current contributions with Nameless and just prior, but this is a bit after my time.

Best Paladin As a paladin myself, I think I will break up my opinion here. Chakka was the first generation, way before Cobrahn was released. Before healing touch. The next wave, perhaps 2 years before Cobrahn included Dred__Rage, Margaret__Blood (Bertster) and myself.. Us three were the first to 26 , forever racing for a long time, till Sallander_FURY redefined skilling as a paladin joining us as the only 4 disarm pallies for years. If I had to choose one, I suppose it would be Sallander_FURY for his risk taking as a paladin and the speed of his skilling.

Best thief. Pug__Blood/Fury/RIP Surprisingly this guy gets my nomination for the single best player for advancing the game. As his brother Piledriver, hated by a lot of the general population for his questionable tactics, but he was the very first to conquer many of the Cobrahn lairs, and his innovations caused Randy and Brad many headaches. Not nescessarily bugs, but just original ideas. For all Drakkar history enthusiasts, he is the guy you would love to sit down and have a beer with someday and listen to his stories and ideas.

For those interested, Pug and Pile were in RIP just before Cobrahn was released. This is when Jihad had mostly left for EQ, and RIP was reduced to Pug, Pile, Blackjack, Zandolf and myself. Pug and Pile had a huge fight, as they often did, and BOTH left RIP. Pug started BLOOD with Bertster, I think Barabbas had just renewed his classic account joined them as well. While Piledriver and myself, along with Grundeg_BORED, Baalzamon_BORED and Firewolf started FURY. Blackjack and Zandolf chose to remain in RIP, but were honorary FURY. Anyway, Pug led Blood on a lot of the initial Cobrahn raids, and when they tuckered out a bit, Pug joined Fury, but through it all, Pug was the idea man behind most of the original thought in Cobrahn. Yes, as I said, he always pushed the limits of legality, and was generally disliked, but his thief Deathstryke was always involved.

Best Healer. As much as this pains me, Nubrigol_Jihad deserves this honor. RIP and Jihad were mortal enemies for most of the 9 year history of Drakkar so we never had an opportunity to hunt together, but he led his guild to a status that arguably cannot be matched. Other guilds may have had more dominance for a short period of time, but for the long haul, they are unmatched

Much the same as Pug, I feel he pushed the envelope of game mechanics or legality and often times invoked the ire of the general population but perhaps that was out of jealousy of accomplishment.

Best FM Arkon__FURY Arkon was the first player I had heard of that had a magic skill and staff skill to 30.

A few quick honorable mentions not known for one class. Grundeg_FURY had 4 different classes to skill 24 back before Cobrahn's coin and ease of skill. He knew the classes he played better than anyone I knew.

Bullseye_FURY, very much like Grundeg had 3 or 4 different classes all to a very high skill, and really helped people in the forums.


Sorry to ramble, but my first post in a year or so, probably my last for equally as long. Just a little history from the way I saw it, in the time I played it.

I seem to recall how on IEN Sallandair would at one point say that Flagg was his ideal. That was at the time when he was already 10 exp levels higher. And on IEN 10 exp levels meant alot!

There was time when BJ would stand frozen on lockers hex in SF.(around year 2000, so long after everything was already done)

He would come back alive if Sal would enter, they had a catch line too like [Sallandair_FURY throws a pint of a cool one to Blackjack_RIP] something...

Well met!

(Good memories)

I don't know a lot of people in drak, the ones that I did have either quit or I don't even friggin remember or know what class they are/were. I did, however, meet a few:

Pally: Ztinktoof. Met him once, he organized a quick kill of the Levi for me (despite me telling him over and over that I was only 14 and couldn't use it yet).
Barb: So many, included are Seville, Barbarella, and several others.
Ment: Griffin. I'm not sure if any of you remember or even knew him when he played, but when I first started, he helped me learn the game, showed me where the ghost on N-3.5 was, etc. I'm pretty sure he played a ment, but I can't be too sure.
Thief: Memnoch, just because of that awesome avatar ;)

MA, healer, and F/M, I don't know any (and know for sure their classes), or I don't remember any names of people who have these classes or what their classes were, etc.

Those are just my favorites, Griffin, I think, got to level 22 or some such before he left Drakkar, so he definately wouldn't be the best, but my favorite, I'd have to say.

Ladykris also goes on here, but I don't remember what class.

Can't help but wonder how many people have actually ever hunted with those they list as best...

Well, it seems what you're trying to say is that unless they hunted with all high level chars of that class, it doesn't seem like they'd be qualified to list the best.

Basically, when those that haven't post, it generally means they've heard a lot about them, and perhaps met them once and they talked about the game or something.

Besides, I'm sure that's why most people picked them as best, is because they've hunted with them.

Edit: You know, I do have to agree, however, that there's no substitute for experience in a matter.

Edit2: Actually, there's a story in Norse mythology about choosing a husband through mere reputation alone. Sigmund warned his father, Volsung, not to have Volsung's daughter marry the man that she said was evil (she was very intuitive of things). Volsung had already promised her hand when he had come, however, based solely on the man's reputation. Well, long story short, Volsung was murdered, and I'm sure you can guess who killed him (no, it wasn't Sigmund).

Forgot his name, :) Someone that helped me learn the game, He had his birthday in sf, on IEN. And I havn't seen him since. Back then, the game was smaller, as was the players. For the most part, gamers were friendlier in that era. As time goes on, there are more and more snerts in all games.

The normal list, bj, rosey, seville, hoss, yeti, elessar, athena, poldarn, grinder, sd guild, most sysops.



Least favorites :p

Mars
Tobranna
Jord


Short lists, not class specific, and unbiased.
