EQ atlas a nice addition for the EQ RPG, September 12, 2002

The maps might not contain any grids, it does have lots of information about all the zones. This added information is more usable if you also play the EQ RPG. So you can show your players all the great locations in the world of norrath and beyond
I like the looks, August 22, 2002

Unlike the maps from [another website], you can tell where you are at it appears. Landmarks are there for you to see. If you look at the map, you can see the camps and anything else you need. In keeping with the spirt of the game exploring is still needed to find some of the things you will need to know of. And unlike maps from Eqatlas you dont have to wait till the owner of the sight has time or the level to go into a zone to "draw" it out.
I spent over [$$$] in ink and paper to print out the maps from EqAtlas, should have waited to spend [$$$] on the offical one. LOL
Almost a complete waste, August 21, 2002

Not much for your money here; "Atlas" is just a collection of little facts and tid-bits about the zones of EQ. This collection would actually be quite useful except for the fact that almost all of the information it offers is readily accessible from a number of EQ web sites. The only thing going for "Atlas" is that it offers players with poor connections the opportunity to find the information they seek without waiting forever on their browsers.
Bottom line : You will likely want to save your money.
EQ Atlas is awesome! ;), August 20, 2002

Yes it wouldn't normally make sense to purchase maps when you can get them for free online. This makes an awesome collector's item type of thing though. I saw a sample of one of the maps from my e-mail newsletter and they look awesome! 3D Maps and so pretty and detailed, to boot! From what I understand it also includes maps of the new Planes as well. :) I am totally getting this! Plus now I can throw out all the maps that are taking up a large chunk of my EQ notebook (yes, I know I'm a dork). :) So anyway if you like pretty things it's not a bad purchase...
