Missing classic items in advanced search?Follow

Admittedly I haven't had a premium account in some time but with the new TLP server coming & at least some of the long removed items appearing on the server (least for a time) I figured to give it a shot. But when I attempt to search just classic (or exclude all other expansions), I get either very little or very incorrect results (even EoK items). If I try to just limit by level & slot, the results appear limited, as it only goes so far back.

Are the old items still there? Is there a way to do an advanced search for them?

The team has been adding the "original" flag to stuff, but this is a more recent thing.

For years pretty much just quests were flagged as original. Remember this database was started long before the idea of a progression server.

I fiddled around with the search and was getting some wacky results... they got better when I picked a class and a specific stat (I randomly chose str). Then I got a page full of stuff, but most of it was things I know have been recently flagged. Screwy results tend to be the revamped loot table old raid zones by the way.

I switched to "require Kunark" and excluded everything else and got a list that was mostly Kunark, but some clear "maybe shouldn't be there".

What are you actually trying to find? There is a good chance that users here can point you in the right direction.

Don't forget the useful threads sticky, for example there is a thread in there about focus effects in original era on progression.

Oh I was just hoping to do gear searches for original EQ - things I've long forgotten. Weapons by efficency, focus items, etc. My memory is not that great and this is the first time I've cared to look up original drops since they were originally in fashion. So it was no inparticular item but rather the general ability to list the in era items by various weights.

No matter which way I list the search, I seem to be missing items as the results appear capped to 2 pages. Furthermore, since there is no way to put a max values on stats, I can't filter out the untagged items which obviously don't belong. For example, if I exclude everything but 'origina', pick a class, put a level cap of 50 on it, and pick the slot as primary,I still will never see the mosscovered twig in the results, no matter if I order by weapon efficency, damage : delay, or delay : damage. That is an item I know exists and yet is not shown - how many others are not shown?

Like Snailish said, the Original item tag was added recently, we really haven't had any volunteer admins go in and start tagging original items yet other than spell scrolls, which we have all of those tagged now. I've tagged about 250 Original items myself going by numerical item id order. But I have been busy with building wiki pages for the progression wiki so I haven't had time to work on the items yet. We could always use more volunteers to help on the classic project.

I went ahead and marked a few popular class items with the original tag. You'll see them in the update post later today.
