I sat for hours, so many that they all blurred together with Phil “Ralph” Comeau and two other gents from work camping "The Preacher". Our victim was on a 30 minute timer, but we could kill everything in the room in about 20 seconds. That meant that we had to find other ways to amuse ourselves. Our night consisted of listening to Phil's jokes and watching our bard dance on "the stage" where the Preacher spawned. It was one of the most memorable nights of EQ not because we actually accomplished anything amazing, but because four friends sat around in an office, drinking beer and enjoying the downtime in a MMOG. I still believe that the downtime in EQ was one of the biggest reasons that people played it as long as they did.
