EQ lore is interesting to say the least. On classic, wasn’t much on the internet for info at first, so it kind of forced you to read NPCs dialog, dropped tomes and things like that in order to learn about trade skills and lore for quests.
The old Prima strategy guides have a lot of lore info and you can still find these on eBay and Amazon used for 5-20 bucks.
Kunark was my favorite lore because of Iksars, Epics, and the secondary epics quests like Greenmist and Whistling Fists.
Then later with Luclin, the snakes and the interaction with the Iksar came about. The Combine faction was cool too.
Planes of Power finally gave us the chance do directly deal with the gods we have worshipped prior, but giving a whole new lore setting based strictly on PoP zones.
