EQ Update #80

In this update, the rest of all the Distillate potions are all marked with the expansion they are tied to and recipes as well.

I cleaned up the Serpent's Spine RK3 quest entry to make it a little easier to view the spells for each class.

Spells have been updated to the June patch. This update should fix several SPA issues with spells. such as SPA 148 not showing the correct info on blocking and SPA 457 now shows lifetaps percentages of hitpoints given back and shows max hitpoints given back if a max value is assigned to the spell. New targettypes were added as well, 48 (Caster Next on Hatelist), 39 (No Pets), 35 (Special Muramites) and 21 (Undead).

Site Downtime

Sorry folks for the site downtime. Our web server died on us and we had to order a new server, configure it, recover all the data and transfer it offsite to a backup location and then put everything back on the new server.

We're still working on getting lucy up and running and there are some issues with uploaded images not displaying. We'll get all that fixed soon.

Thank you all for your patience and being supportive of us!

We do have plans to move the site to a better hosting solution soon that gives the site more flexibility and redundancy in case of a hardware failure happens again in the future.

Edit: Lucy is up and so are uploaded images.

EQ Update #79

In this update, new comments were caught up to tonight.

Some Distillate potions expansions were corrected to this post on the Daybreak forums. I'm still going through all of them. Some that have been changed already are not listed in the below updates.

Also we need some help from folks doing Ring of Scale content. For those running the item collector, we need folks to activate the Ring of Scale personal tribute effects for a quick second and then can deactivate. This will upload an invisible item to lucy that has the stat of the tribute effect you activated. I'm trying to update the Tribute page for Ring of Scale effects and I need the cost of each one and the required level.

EQ Update #77

In this update, some new items have been coming in since our item collector is patched now.I've got those items tagged now.

We have plenty more missing items here on the site if you want to help out. If you already have the item collector installed, check out our Missing Items thread on the forums to see what we're missing.

Spells for Bards, Berserkers, Clerics, Druids, Enchanters and Magicians had their expansions set for level 91 through 95 via the spell search tool.

We'll be doing some database updates to the spell history table tomorrow night to fix some columns from limiting spell info, dropping columns that are no longer needed and partitioning the table since it is quite large.

Ruins of Kunark opening on Coirnav tomorrow!

For those that play on Coirnav, Ruins of Kunark is opening tomorrow at 2pm PT. We have plenty of info about Kunark here on the site.

Checkout our progression wiki for Kunark where we have some info on it. I just added a section showing where all the agent of changes are located for all the raids. I'll work on adding some more information on that page.

Also in other news, all level 86 to 90 spells for all classes have been given an expansion tag via the spell search tool.

EQ Update #75

In this update, pre kunark (original) armor Seafarer and Ogre War plate were given a original expansion tag. The recipes for them was also given an original expansion tag.

Berserker, Cleric and Druid tomes/spells level 86 to 90 were given an expansion tag via the spell search tool.

I just finished up work on the spell history database tables and will be updating this large table probably sometime this week over a few days to spread out the workload. The updates address some limitations that existed in the main spell table and the history table that cut off spell information. The main spell database has already been corrected but those corrections won't be visible until we run the spell parser again which will happen when the next eq patch hits.
