EQ Update #103

Yay we are on the new host now! I hope the site loads faster for everyone. We had some issues that we're ironing out.

The search box at the top right of the site isn't working at the moment, we'll get that fixed soon. For now I've installed a google search box on the front page on the right that will help you search the site.

We've been busy inputting info for The Burning Lands and I've also been busy working on development.

New comments have been caught up except for quests, we'll get those updated soon.

NPC pages now show when a NPC was added to the npc table and also shows when it was last updated. The date added will probably show zero's for NPC's added before Prophecy of Ro since that is around the time that particular column was added to the NPC table.

Site Migration is happening tonight!

Tonight at 10pm PST we'll be bringing all allakhazam domain sites down for the migration to its new host. We plan to be back up by at least 3AM PST but may take longer. You can keep in touch with me on my twitter or in our discord channel to get updates/news on the whole process.

 

Edit: We are aware the main search box is not working. We are working on it and hope to get it fixed soon. For now I have posted a google search box here on the front page on the right side that will help you search the site.

Edit: This has been completed as of 7am pst this morning. It may take up to 48 hours for DNS to update for people to point to the new ip's.

EQ Update #102 and TBL Beta

In this update, many things were updated.

Beta officially opened for The Burning Lands yesterday during the live stream. We've been hard at work gathering info and entering it into the site. Here is what we know so far about the beta.

For participating in the beta, you will recieve a Djinn hat ornamentation.

The following info is from the beta forums.

  • A new luck stat was added that will randomly increase the amount of coin in your split, the amount of ciritical damage you do, your chance to succedd at a tradeskill combine. This new stat will only be on gear from TBL on later expansions and will be random when you loot it. You can also merge two of the same item with the luck stat and it will take the highest luck amount and add +1 to the highest stat if it's not already maxed out.
  • There are 6 new zones and 1 instance of Plane of Fire.
  • Access to these other zones requires completing progression. Progression starts in Stratos which is located in a rift near the Plane of Air entrance (CTRL F in PoT to find).
  • 3 tiers of group items (last tier is tradeskill), 2 tiers of raid items. Tier 1 group items can be found in Stratos and Plane of Smoke. Group items can also be found within missions in Trials of Smoke (Plane of Smoke), Aalishai, and Empyr.
  • Tier 2 items can be found on rare creatures in Mearatas, Aalishai, and Empyr. They can also be found in missions in Esianti, Plane of Fire, Chamber of Tears, and Mearatas.
  • Tier 3 items are the tradeskill items which require rare components.
  • Tier 1 raid items will be available through all of the raids. Tier 2 will be based on tradeskills and like the tier 3 group items, components will be rare.
  • New item flag, Lore Equipped. This will allow you own more than one of an item but you can only equip one of them. Rings and earrings are set to Lore Equipped.
  • 4 new evolving rare items that also have augmentations that are only specifically for it.
  • 2 new shared bank slots.
  • New merc AA's with new merc skins, new player AA's.
  • New player spells.

EQ Update #101

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

All zone page headers across all expansions have been corrected to so the text doesn't scroll off the right of the page for non premium users viewing from mobile devices.

Item pages on lucy and allakhazam have been fixed to where they will display solvents for augmentations regardless if they have been updated by the item collector. Type 3 augments should now show their solvents because of this fix.

Also the item page on allakhazam was updated to show when an item was last updated by the item collector. Other information was edited on the item pages for both allakhazam and lucy to make it more clear what the information is for. Lucy's item page CSS was slightly changed to auto fit tables and center them, this is just a small part of a bigger project to make the information a little easier to read instead of stretching the page across the whole browser.

A bug causing Microsoft Edge browsers to freeze when clicking on input boxes on the advanced item search page has been fixed.

I will be adding in code and database changes for The Burning Lands expansion this week.

As far as the site migration goes, we'll give an update on that sometime this week. We're trying to organize the best date and time to do this.
