Patch Notes for March 16, 2005

Patch notes for March 16, 2005: ............................................ EverQuest's 6th Anniversary -------------------------------------- To help celebrate the 6th Anniversary of EverQuest, a fresh scavenger hunt has been added. Check in Firiona Vie, Overthere, or Dreadlands for more on this quest. Finish this challenging hunt and you will receive a potion that doubles your experience for 30 minutes and comes with 10 charges. Your old friends, the Fabled NPCs have returned to Norrath and bring the fabled versions of their items with them. Look for new Fabled NPCs in your favorite Kunark zones. General -------------------------------------- - Increased the spell rune drop rates for Greater Muramite Runes and Glowing Muramite Runes in Muramite Proving Grounds and Riftseeker's Sanctum. - Reduced the number of mobs that will summon in Veksar. - Volkara in the Volkara's bite mission has been made a little more challenging. - The fight against Vishimtar has been made more challenging. - The Citrine Spell Stone has been renamed to Citrine Spell Bauble. - Level 20, 40 and 60 Tradeskill Pattern Book Quests for Wood Elves, Kelethin Half-Elves, Dwarves, High Elves and Gnomes have been altered slightly to make them a bit friendlier to complete. - The encounter with Grinbik in Bloodfields for the Ranger epic has been made a bit less confusing. - "A shady Highpass citizen" in Highpass will look kindly on you and spread the word on your increased friendship if you complete his tasks. - Several missions have been tuned to bring their completion time on par with the other DoN missions: Diving for Lavarocks Dragon Eggs Diseased Pumas - When the task "Keeping the Goblins Out" has been finished you should now get the completion text. Items -------------------------------------- - The Icefloe Hammer is no longer a 1 handed piercing weapon, it is now 1 handed blunt and the bonus to backstab has been removed. - The Lance of Engulfing Flame now has a proc instead of a worn spell. - The Robe of Transcendent Thought has been changed to Drape of Transcendent Thought. - Various Anguish class leg pieces have been altered. - Academic's Pants of the Arcanists now has the focus effect "Frost of Anguish". - The mana preservation focus on several Tacvi chest pieces has been increased slightly. -- The EverQuest Team ............................................

Actually, one of the reasons they are taking the servers down is probably to fix this, they rarely "ninja nerf", they do it in the open.
xp potion

says it supposed to last 30 min in the patch message but when linked in the game the potion shows only 15 min. which is correct?

This should have gone into the update message as well. Ky was out sick, so it was accidentally missed (hope you're felling better Ky.)

- Changed the text on Culturally Inspired Armor - part 3 to accurately reflect the pelts used for Half Elven cultural tailored armors.

- Added a book to outline the creation of the new cultural sewing kits.

- All of the new cultural sewing kits can now be traded in to Caerlyna in the Bazaar for tokens.

- Meeka Diggs in Rivervale no longer sells Iron Thread and should now sell the three sizes of Mercurium Thread.

- Added some missing Troll cultural items to vendors in Neriak.

- There was a new "Chunk of Ice" created for the Dragons of Norrath expansion. This new "Chunk of Ice" has been removed and replaced with the old "Chunk of Ice" on the forage tables for all Dragons of Norrath zones. They should also now drop off some of the colder dervishes. All of the new Dragons of Norrath drink recipes that used "Chunk of Ice" (Curdled Cream, Iced Coffee, Iced Tea and Iced Mountain Tea) now use the old "Chunk of Ice"

- Fixed a bug with the recipe for creating Barbarian cultural leather swatches. The recipes were mistakenly using the "Norrathian Needle" instead of the "Northman Needle".

- Fixed a bug in the recipe for creating the Dragons of Norrath cultural armor patterns that could allow a player to recover their ruined book with a successful salvage. Sorry, that was unintentional.

- Removed the Erudite Sewing Kit from vendors. The new kit is created by players and should replace the old kit.

- Fixed the Feir'Dal Fletcthing Kit. Really, we did.

- Fixed the Surefall Fletching Kit. (This was actually fixed with the last update).

- Fixed the Reinforced Jeweler's Kit. (This was actually fixed with the last update).

- Changed the Dragons of Norrath cultural recipes that used "Quill" to now use "A Quill" (used in research recipes). "A quill" is also now sold on the appropriate vendors. (This was actually changed with the last update).
