3/4/2013 Pendarin: The note at the top doesn't make any sense. "Note: This page is a list of non-classic aspects of Everquest that do not exist on p1999." In a sense, that's a double negative. I'm thinking it should read something to the effect of: "This page is a list of classic aspects of Everquest that either do not exist on p1999, or are different on p1999 than on Live Everquest during classic era."

3/6/2013 Pendarin: Ok, the note finally makes sense to me. But this is like describing what an object is by describing what it isn't. The list should be enormous, including every change made to the game after Velious, wouldn't it? Wouldn't it be more prudent to focus on the areas of P1999 that cannot be or are not modelling classic era, for whatever reason? On the other hand, I suppose this page is meant to address questions where people think something should be a certain way because they experienced it post-Velious, not realizing that it wasn't that way pre-Luclin.

I guess it is supposed to be both, however the list of things "that will never exist on p99 because they aren't classic" is essentially infinite, and quite large, as you point out. I think this is still useful to have where it overlaps, i.e. where original zones got revamped, pre-level 60 spells, etc etc. The list of things "that are wrong in p99 because they were different in classic" is also interesting. Feel free to reword the message/work on any part of the page as you see fit. --Ravhin 17:17, 7 March 2013 (UTC)
Ok, I gave it a shot and added some cues for future editors. Hopefully it's a little more organized now (although I or someone still have to find some references to know how to categorize the ones I left in as "Uncategorized." --Pendarin 20:53, 8 March 2013 (UTC)

Client Limitations > Zone Geography > Paineel door

For what it is worth, I would like to claim that this line is incorrect:

Not able to swim through The Hole door crack in Paineel, unless a smaller race.reference?

I personally followed a high-level bard through that crack as a newbie erudite, less than a month after Paineel first opened. I remember the experience vividly.
