So I recently came across the thread "Your favorite MMO" and was rather surprised to not see Tibia as an option.
So I'm gonna make a thread about Tibia, the 2d MMO that actually has real player housing, and real quests.
I played Tibia a long time ago, 2005-2007ish, on the Server Honera. My name was Elfin Hilon (hence my forum name) and I was a druid. I spent 2 years or so getting to the level 41, when I died several times and quit. I eventually got tired of the death penalty, but man I LOVED that game.
So I'm writing this today to see if anyone else currently plays Tibia, or has played it in the past. If so, speak up! Tell me your vocation, name, and sever you played on. I'm hoping to see some familiar faces, but I'm not holding my breath.
I'll give one experience I had.
I used to play with a guy named Pierolle, who was a knight. I remember him buying me Premium time (the game was f2p, with the option of paying for added benefits) and being so thankful he did that. After I had it, he asked me if I wanted to heal him at the hero spawn in Edron, and being nervous as hell about dying, I was reluctant to go, to say the least. After some convincing I went, and had an awesome time.
I remember manasitting, and making UH's before they added the new potions into the game, and make a TON of money off of that. I remember running by houses, and seeing all the loot and decorations within the houses. All the shiny and glittery items made me wish "If only I could get in there for 5 seconds..." I remember always wanting Boots of Haste, as the idea of moving super fast always made me happy. I remember my goal set for the game was explore the entire map.
See Tibia was different then most games. Unlike current games, where the map is either filled in, or fills in MASSIVE chunks (ala WoW), Tibia filled in by pixels. Roughly 10 pixels at time. So you actually had to walk to places in order for something to be seen on mini-map.
One of the people I miss most from my server was a woman by the name of Honeya Druid. As you probably guessed, she was a druid. Druids were much different in Tibia then compared to WoW. Druids were more along the lines of Priests in WoW, where as paladins in Tibia, were more like Hunters that could utilize holy magic.
But enough rambling. Post your memories!
