EQ Update #7

Plenty happened in the month of April for Everquest.

An AMA was held back on on the 9th. Here are some of the things talked about from a quote on the official game forums.

"SK/Necro DoT revamps incoming (SK next patch, necro thereafter).

Overseer road map (Lower currency costs INC, limited rewards)

Experience model (ToV XP model likely to be continued).

No changes to raid reward system (currency vs chase).

Little to no chance of Free Trade/PvP TLP No new engine.

No new class/race combos.

Heroic Chracters to get a boost but no timetable.

ToV T2 gets same ZEM XP.

(Named gets 3-4 multiplier).

Past expansion collector/premium editions items to go in marketplace.

No expansion pre-release content (one-off events is not ideal).

No new tutorial system (due to resource cost).

Server merges incoming

No Ultron Ultimate Unattuner in marketplace.

No increase to loyalty point cap but new items to add will get looked at.

No new player-made items for marketplace but naming rights possible.

No tunic graphics for casters.

Team tries their best to systematically address bugs and code issues."

The full AMA chat can be found here.

Some of these items have already had work done on them such as the upcoming server merges slated to begin on May 19th. Those server merges will take a full 24 hours. The time when this will happen hasn't been posted yet but check back in the thread linked for more information.

Also recently Darkpaw Games announced that two new TLP servers will be launching on May 27th. The two new server names are Aradune and Rizlona.

We have been hard at work adding information for the new Overseer system. We almost have all of the agents information added and are slowly making quest entries. At some point I'll be adding Overseer search features for both NPCs and Quests.

Patch 4-15-2020

April 15, 2020

_____________________

 

*** Highlights ***

 

- Shadowknight - Your Damage over Time spells at or above level 71 have been adjusted so that they no longer stack with themselves, but now do more damage and cost more mana.

- NPCs (except for mercenaries) now display all 97 of their buffs and debuffs in the target window

 

 

*** Items ***

 

- Hidden augments will no longer block tradeskill combines or reward set claims. This fixes two issues: First, the Burning Lands evolving items with purity have hidden augments for the power source, and these would block the upgrade rewards. Second, some classes had hidden augments in the Underfoot Prayer shawl, preventing the combine to upgrade.

- All standard collectible items have been flagged Attunable.

- Increased the effectiveness and reduced the recast time of Fancy Feast and Mom's Love.

- Reduced the price of Crystallized Luck on the loyalty merchants.

- Fixed an issue where Torment of Velious necklaces didn't grant the AAs or the phantom buff.

- Fixed the lore text on several items that had "&CHAR(34)&" instead of a double quote.

- Removed the Tradeskill flag from Restless Giant Skull.

- Created Tempus Faycite Shard: Heron Stance and placed it with other melee augments on Peret Mykland in Eastern Wastes (Torment of Velious).

- Fixed the spell description on Guardian's Bravery on Gladiator's Plate Chestguard of War.

 

 

*** Tradeskills ***

 

- When using a Draught of the Craftsman or other effect that increases your salvage chance to 100% or greater, you can no longer receive an 'unexpected product' upon failure; however it is still possible to receive an 'alternate product' upon failure.

- Removed the Quest flag from the Torment of Velious tradeskill books.

- Added the Tradeskill flag to: Fermented Restless Bone Marrow, Marrow Hardened Etching Tool, Powdered Velium and Platinum, Velium and Platinum Filter, Filtered Velium and Platinum, Velium and Platinum with Wood Primer, Dried Velium and Platinum, Desiccated Velium and Platinum, Purified Velium-Platinum Bar, and Anointed Purified Velium-Platinum Bar.

- Altered Talem Tucter's text so that he tells players to speak with Loremaster Solstrin to continue the shawl quest line.

 

 

*** Quests And Events ***

 

- Servant of the Sleeper - Reduced the aggro range of a velium sentry. The awareness range is unchanged, so its reaction to ranged damage is as before.

- Servant of the Sleeper - Added a sound effect when this raid sets up.

- End the Return - Fixed an issue where an incorrect Z bounding volume was being checked, preventing task completion.

- Raid events from Veil of Alaris and later will now grant more currency after they have been open for 3, 6, and 9 months on live servers. On Progression Servers these events will grant more currency as soon as the expansion unlocks, and add additional bonuses after each of the next two expansions unlock or at 3 month intervals, whichever is faster.

- A Formal Dinner Party - Capped the scaling of the mission to level 110.

- Seeking the Sorcerer (Mission) - The mission is now restricted to a maximum of six characters.

- The Handmaiden - Changed the requirements for staying on the pedestal. If the ritualist character (the one with the skull and baton) falls through the pedestal, they will no longer trigger a failure.

- Tudor's Ale - Liviu now has a helper named Nicoli, who can help create the ale for this quest.

- Fixed some script errors in several old quests and events.

- Tower of Frozen Shadow progression - Handing in an item correctly for the yearning NPC puzzle on the 3rd floor now indicates how many steps you've completed and how many are left to go.

- Tower of Frozen Shadow progression - The mirror on the 8th floor will now teleport the user to the entrance of the 7th floor. No key is required to use the 8th floor mirror.

- Made the following changes to the Tower of Frozen Shadow raids:

- - Heart of Frozen Shadow - The Heart of Frozen Shadow will now gain health when the wrong type of monster is slain.

- - Heart of Frozen Shadow - The limitation on killing type of monsters (10 specters and 25 drolvargs / skeletons) to reduce the Heart of Frozen Shadow's health is now being enforced correctly.

- - Heart of Frozen Shadow - The amount of cold status decay that occurs during the middle phases of the fight are now variable, rather than static.

- - Till Death Do Us Part - Relaxed the bounding volume requirements in the pool of blood slightly for the Bad Blood achievement.

- - Till Death Do Us Part and Tserrina Syl`Tor - Fixed some logic bugs that affected how frequently the NPCs would cast their spells.

 

 

*** Spells ***

 

- Necromancer - Corrected a bug in the spell description for Incite Ally.

- Shadowknight - Your Damage over Time spells at or above level 71 have been adjusted so that they no longer stack with themselves, but now do more damage and cost more mana.

- Shadowknight - The Bond of Inruku line starting at level 66 has been modified to use resource taps rather than a separate recourse spell to return health to you. Lower level spells were not changed.

- The swarm pets summoned by Sporali in Hills of Shade no longer proc deadly spells.

- The vicarum vitai halflings in Arx Mentis will no longer spawn as tall as giants.

 

 

*** Mercenaries ***

 

- When purchasing a mercenary the list of available mercenaries will include the mercenary type in addition to the mercenary tier. Additionally, the list is now sorted by type, then tier, and then if it requires a membership level.

- Level 111+ 'player race' mercenaries should now equip weapons.

 

 

*** Overseer ***

 

- Collectible items granted by the Overseer Collection Item Dispenser are now attuned to the user (made No Trade) when claimed.

- Reduced the prices on the Overseer merchant for all items except for the Common Agent Catalyst and Crystallized Luck, which had their prices increased.

- Restricted the lesser coin reward that comes with some of the Overseer Collection Item Dispensers so they are also hidden on Free accounts to avoid confusion.

- The percentage chance Overseer Collection Item Dispensers are now fragments. Click on one, if you have at least four fragments, to make a single normal (100% chance) Overseer Collection Item Dispenser.

- - If you have one of the old percent chance dispensers, they will have a name change and you can right-click them to convert them to fragments.

- Fixed errors in collections offered by the Overseer Collection Item Dispenser.

- - Crypt of Decay collectibles are no longer offered in The Darkened Sea, as Crypt of decay collectibles are already in the Broken Mirror set.

- - Added Velketor's Labyrinth to the Torment of Velious set and moved the collections that were in the incorrect zone.

- - Added the Dispenser to all sets so that if you get a set that you cannot claim, you have a fallback.

- Corrected an issue where Overseer Recovery quests were not being offered.

- Corrected an issue where Overseer Quests rotated multiple times within a few minutes.

- Fixed an issue where an incapacitated Overseer Agent would sometimes show the incorrect time remaining. This also fixes Agent Slots on offered quests displaying the wrong incapacitation duration.

- Altered the display of mercenary experience granted by the Overseer system. It was displaying more than it was giving, but it was giving the correct amount.

- Corrected an issue that prevented Conversion quests from being reassigned after completion.

 

 

*** Miscellaneous ***

 

- Added a message explaining what happens when players try to accept a raid invite while the raid is locked.

- Fixed an issue where if an account had certain characters in their name, the account could not log in.

- Buyers may now only have one active buy line per item. When activating buyer mode in the bazaar, duplicate buy lines will be disabled and only the buy line that offers the highest amount of platinum and the highest quantity of items will remain active.

- Renamed the /hideafk command to /hidemodels.

- Added options to hide all players, pets, or mercenaries, even if they are not AFK. Group and raid marked targets will not be hidden.

Anniversary News!

It's that time of the year folks. Happy 21st birthday EQ!

 


Source

Hail Norrathians,

It's hard for us to fathom that it's been 21 years since this grand adventure began The myriad lands and challenges you’ve all completed have brought us an incredible sense of awe time and time again. We couldn't be happier to share another year with all of you and can't wait to see what the next year brings.
We've got some great things in store for the anniversary, some of you’re already experiencing, such as our new Overseer feature and the Veteran AA rewards. We still have a few things we'd like to discuss below as we enter our 21st year, including our annual 50% bonus experience event, which will be from March 16, 2020 12 AM PDT to April 1, 2020 at 1 AM PDT.

New TLP server news?

Yeah, we got that. We are incredibly excited to announce the names and general rule set info for the TWO new TLP servers we will be launching in the coming months. Please put your hands, paws, and claws together for Aradune and Rizlona! Aradune is a new concept for our Truebox server rule set. It's going to have similarities to Mangler's rule set in terms of XP, era locking, and a lot more. Rizlona will also share the Mangler rule set and be our first boxing progression server in a long time. More specific rule sets and how they will function differently than the current TLPs will be shared in the coming weeks!

Heroic Level 85 Character Boost

Ready to try out a new class, want to make a home on a different live server? We're giving all All Access Members a free Heroic Level 85 Character Boost to celebrate our birthday. Start a new life in a new home, or just try something new on your current one. You'll be able to claim the bauble from March 16 through May 10!

Server Merges

To prepare you and your characters for the universal shift, we wanted to let you know what servers are on the list. We don't want anyone getting the matter in their bodies all mixed up, that can get messy.
Lockjaw -> Ragefire
Trakanon -> Vox
Fippy -> Vox
Brekt -> FV

Player Designed Anniversary Quests!

We love the ideas we've gotten from players over the years. The development team worked to implement two player-designed quests that were submitted at Fan Faires over the years. This year for the anniversary quests, prepare to dive into some relationship woes and a culinary conundrum! You can find the following quests and their quest givers below!
Quest: Fancy Feast
Quest Giver: Maitreya the Maitre D’
Starting Zone: Plane of Knowledge

Quest: I Guess this is Growing Up
Quest Giver: Emissary of Erollisi Marr
Starting Zone: Plane of Knowledge

Thank You

A huge thanks to both players that submitted the quests and to all of you for passionately sharing your ideas and love for the game with us! You've been a huge part of our lives and adventures, and we hope we've been part of yours as well.
Cheers to turning 21, and here’s to seeing you in-game!

- The EverQuest Team

 

 

EQ Update #5

Spells have been updated. The spell history has been limited to a few months since the virtual machine that the spell parser sits on has limited resources right now due to being on a new cluster. We'll get that upgraded soon.

Account pruning is coming up soon. We'll be looking at removing the username and any personal information from accounts over 7 years old and keeping everything else such as posts on the forums, wiki entries, pictures uploaded, etc... Logging in will reset the inactive time on the account and save it from pruning.

Also we'll be making an Overseer wiki page soon to go over this new feature of EQ.

EQ's 21st anniversary will be starting on the 16th and will run until May 10th. We have a couple anniversary quests created so far. Fancy Feast and I guess this is Growing Up. Let us know if you find anything new regarding the anniversary.
