EQ Update #10

Here are the last 9 days of updates. Many TBL recipes were created and many other TBL items were tagged thanks to Drewinette, and Grizabelle.

We also entered in 20th anniversary quests and achievements thanks to Larth. We'll get the quests filled in. We'll get the item collector patched soon so people can upload those 20th anniversary items.

I've been busy with fixes in certain areas. I worked on the advanced item search tool so it should be more reliable in finding the items you are looking for.

EQ Update #8

Here are the updates for the last 8 days. Many of the last few days updates are from our now functional item collector, thanks Rswiders!

We're getting caught up on TBL items and getting them tagged and put where they need to go, we'll get there. I'm trying to focus on creating TBL armor recipes first and then I'll branch out to other stuff. Drewinette has been busy as well helping out with TBL items and recipes.

We had some login issues late Friday night and Saturday, that has been fixed. Sorry about that.

Anniversary is coming up and we plan on getting any new content up here on the site as soon as we see it.

EQ Update #7, Patch and More...

I was busy this week fixing issues the site has had. We narrowed down the issues and figured out why they were happening. More work needs to be done on fixing other areas that slow the site down but we'll continue to work on those.

However updates were still done to content such as going back over West Freeport NPC's and setting their titles and adding those titles to be searchable as well. New comments also have been regularly updated by us admins within the past few days, I'll let those pile up a few more days and go back in and update them.

Also today the modified rulesets for Mangler and Selo were anounced. You can get news on that here. I'll be creating the server pages for them soon in the progression wiki guide.

Spells were updated the day of the patch. And the item collector is currently being worked on so we hope that will be available for everyone soon.

EQ Update #6, 2 New Progression Servers and more

Here are the updates for this week.

PoP/LoY is now open on Coirnav. If you need some info on PoP, head on over to our PoP/LoY Wiki page.

Two new progression servers were announced for the 20th anniversary. Will they keep their current rulesets or will they change?

Some much needed work was done on some admin scripts to help our admins mark NPC's with info. Since we got that done, North Qeynos and West Freeport have had some work done on them to mark their NPC's with an original expansion tag. More zones will get the same treatment in the future.

I am currently working on a way for us to enter items in manually, hopefully should have that out for testing within the month.

In this update, many updates to TBL quests, items, and NPC's were done.

EQ Update #108

In this update, many updates to various things, mainly The Burning Lands content.

I just wanted to thank those who are contributing to update information on The Burning Lands. Larth contributed quite a bit of quest information in beta and after release. Drewinette has been plugging quite a bit of stuff I didn't have access to in beta since I had no time to join any raids. Pretty much all my free time after I get home from work is updating things here on the site. One of these days I'll be able to get some free time to actually play again.

We're still waiting on ZAM ops to fix some things back behind the scenes so I can actually get spells, code, database updates and a few other things updated for the expansion. That probably won't happen until some time after Christmas/New Years.

Rswiders is still working on the item collector so hopefully at some point we'll have that up and running again.

EQ Update #107

In this update, all TBL armor now has a TBL expansion tag. All tier 1 raiding armor (not TS) have recipes as well.

All TBL augs have a expansion tag and those that are crafted are flagged as crafted. The TBL aug wiki page now is linked to all the items we have uploaded to the site.

All TBL weapons and shields have a expansion tag and each have a screenshot to show you what they look like. I'll get the page for weapons and shields built soonish.

Many more TBL items were given an expansion tag and flagged if they are crafted or not. We'll get recipes for those created when we get all the components into our item database.

Misc recipes I had made during beta were created. We're still missing quite a bit of the sub components in order to make other recipes. We'll have to wait until our item collector is running in order to get the those uploaded.

TBL Spell rank items are now attached to their ranked spell quest entries.

I decided to just list out the updates by date instead of trying to piece everything together. It's a pain in the butt to do so. It'll kinda of give everyone an idea of what went on each day.

Anyways, still plenty more to do. We'll get spells updated soon I hope. Ops needs to run a few things for me in order for us to be able to get spells updated. They are a bit busy right now.
