My fondest memory is of AC2.  All of it...  just kidding.  Just the parts with PIF.  Namely, the monumental gatherings we had which acted almost as a giant star... sucking random non-members into the area of our 'solar' system... Hehe

Or perhaps camping on the rocks down by the beach pinning off shreth cuz they couldn't reach me.  Yah... that was cheating...  But I was taught by a guild member, so  :P

OR jumping off the top of the great tree with a mount... you feel like you're flying!

My favourite quests were probably, and in no particular order:

The Soulbound Weapond Quests
All the vaults (especially when partied)
Icefire, for sure
Relics of the Golden Age was cool...
There's probably a bunch more, but it's been so long...

And yourself?
Shades of mediocrity...

I would have to say killing Deimos (twice) and I attempted it a million times  >:(

Then later on the hero system came out and tyrant armor wasnt really the best..and definately not worth the time.  Still felt good to see that dragon drop.
If all else fails, run and squeal.

Gee, that's really hard to say.  Honestly, I think my fondest MMORPG memory was the day after Silvergate instituted the Advocate program  (We called it something a bit more childish at the time, the "newbie support network" I think) ... but we got immediate positive feedback from lots of people and several developers logged in to the game and personally thanked us for what we were doing.  I felt that really nice warm glow that you feel when you've done a really really good job and you know it, and it's helping a lot of people.  You know what I'm talking about?

It was really hard to manage.  It took me several hours a day *not* in game just to properly manage all the schedules.  It was hard dealing with people "calling in sick", or just not showing up at all, etc, etc...  Making sure that the volunteers weren't just vending out a bunch of gold and/or gear to newbies, but instead helping them learn how to play, where to find things, etc.

In Asheron's Call 1, you could buy books and scrolls, and write in them via inscription.  We wrote a bunch of "new player guides" for each starter town showing where the newbie dungeons were, how to hunt safely, what armor and weapons or spells to get early on, etc.  We then mass produced them and equipped each of our volunteers with a huge stack of them to distribute.  (We of course included recruitment propoganda at the end, but, hey, we can't be COMPLETELY benevolent.  Hee, hee)

In any case, these guides got passed on from patron to vassal once the new players got high enough in level to start participating in that sort of thing, and I am certain that even years and years later that there's still a few Silvergate Newbie Guides floating around the Harvestgain server.

That's my fondest MMORPG memory.   :)

My fondest mmorg memories was in Ultima Online.  Both bad ones and good ones :p.  

Bad: getting scammed when trying to buy a house deed from a player! ANNNNDDD the dreaded........DYING from lag!

Good: Being part of a game with lots of depth and memorable friends.  Protecting the Innocent from murderers.  Running down thieves!  Opening my own vendor shop!  Furnishing my own house!  etc. etc.
