Hello All!

The last time I played/raided had to have been a good 4-5 years ago.  Kids are 6 and 8 now so evenings go a bit smoother and thus I've reclaimed a good chunk of free time.  I'd like to catch myself up to speed so I could raid at minimum as a casual raider...I'm hoping to tap into your knowledge by asking what the most efficient path forward would be for someone trying to get back on the saddle?

I'm a Lvl 101 Ranger with 12,000 AA's.  I'm looking for a bit of guidance if anyone would like to chime in with where I would be best starting/spending my time.  I know there is a lot on eq resource on quests but I suppose my priority is trying to level up to 110.  - Unfortunately, most of that will probably be 1-2 hours at a time from 8:30-10:30pm est and some of that may have to be solo/molo because I may only have 30-45min here or there on busier nights.

Are there any *must have* items, skills or quests I should make a priority or should I work on leveling first?
Are there any best ways to level up to 110 where I can maximize experience for the time (daily soloable quests? is that a thing?)
My gear is from 4-5 years ago and at the time I had fantastic raid gear but it looks like most of what I have is about half the stats of current level raid gear.

For those of you who don't know me I started in 1999 and played solid, as a serious and consistent raider up through about 2014.
EQ Guild history was: Exemplar, Alarius, Cohort Chalybeius, The Relentless, Darkstar Alliance (where Scorn killed me often for a solid 3-4 months or so) and then to Silent Redemption.

Online resources are fine if I'd be better off just reading eq-resource top to bottom, just let me know!

Thanks Ranonman! Actually I'm still/already guilded! Just hoping for some quick and dirty guidance on the best zones/quests etc for a solo level 101!

Probably the most important thing would be to get to 105 as it will be the last of the autogrant AA's for now.

Greetings Somoadeadshot,

 Hello, I'm happy to see your interest in our Casual Membership, you are around the correct level to join, just get in touch with any SR member.

 As far as items and such, I would focus on leveling. items come as you level. There are tons of special items and clickies you should collect but you can go back and attain these once your max level easily enough.

 Appreciate the brief history.

As far as learning things about the game such as EQresource, there are many other outlets you can read from, including Freelance, EQ forums and many more.
