Syp didn't help, but the main reason is the Sentinel's Fate expansion pack.
I'm not sure what it is, but knowing that a world is alive and expanding makes me want to play. I won't even get to see the new content for quite a while as my Ranger is only level 25. It is the same reason why I will play Cataclysm even though WoW is not my favorite game.
I fully expect to play EQ2 for a month as I can only take so much PvE. In that month, I am sure to get my $15 worth so it wasn't a big deal to re-subscribe. I played a bit over the weekend, got 3 levels, crafted quite a bit and decorated my house some.
I plan on doing my first Heritage quest today, which is for Level 17's. I may just chrono myself back to level 20 and convert all of my XP into AA. After that, I'll likely hop over to WAR for some PvP. Speaking of WAR, Andy hinted that the 1.3.3 patch notes may be live tonight.
