Source

 

May 19, 2021
_____________________

*** Highlights ***

- For the first time, you can quickly identify the gains and losses of equipping an item to determine if an item is an upgrade and by how much. See the UI section below for more information.

- Look to the Marketplace this month for the Halfling Heritage Crate. Each crate contains a random item. Trade these Halfling Heritage items to your friends or collect them all yourself!

*** Items ***

- Descriptive text has been corrected for Outrider of Karana and Norrath Keeper's bundles.
- Augmentation Distillers now stack up to 100.
- Added missing descriptive text for the Evantil Guild Trophy.
- Corrected an issue with the Legend of the Jarsath Destroyer pack that prevented it from giving the Visage of the Girplan as a prize. Replaced one chance at a Jester with Prize: Visage of the Girplan. The chance to get other items is unchanged.
- Look to the Marketplace this month for the Halfling Heritage Crate. Each crate contains a random item. Trade these Halfling Heritage items to your friends or collect them all yourself!
- Check out everquest.com/packs this month for the new Roguish Rapscallion Pack and Successful Shenanigan Bundle!

*** Quests & Events ***

- There will no longer be broadcasts about the tipsy gnome race. You can speak to Teena to get an idea of when it starts up again.
- Fixed an issue that was causing some fabled NPCs to restore all of their health every tick. The following should no longer have this issue: The Fabled Manaetic Behemoth, The Fabled Saryrn, The Fabled Terris-Thule, and The Fabled Warlord Gintolaken. In the Plane of Time instance: The Fabled Tallon Zek, The Fabled Vallon Zek, and The Fabled Saryrn.
- Fixed an issue with the Zlandicar Raid that could cause the dracoliches to spawn too quickly.
- Fixed a reset issue with the Defenders of the Tomb raid that could cause the event to reset if all the drakes were killed. Also reduced the hit points and damage of the drakes by 20% or more.
- Reworked the Rhag Cycle in Ssraeshza Temple using more modern techniques. Each boss should spawn reliably upon the death of the last.
- Modified the fourth event in Deathknell. Ayonae Ro will now become "vulnerable" over time (and health) rather than all at once.

*** Spells ***

- Fixed the spelling of Root Ball Exlosion and Root Bundle Exlosion.
- Corrected an issue where beam spells would sometimes try to hit mounts and targets out of line of sight.
- Necromancer - The Necrotizing Wounds line of spells will no longer stack with itself if cast by the same caster. The spells will do more damage and cost more mana. The proliferation spells that are triggered by these spells are unchanged.
- Necromancer - The Splurt line of spells will no longer stack with itself or with the Necrotizing Wounds line of spells. Higher ranks will deal more damage and cost more mana.
- Necromancer - The Scourge of Fates line of spells will no longer stack with itself. Scourge of Destiny now deals more damage and costs more mana. The spell line no longer uses a shared timer.
- Necromancer - Reduced the damage and mana cost for several DoT lines, including Pyre of Mori, Flashblaze, Searing Shadow, Pallid Haze, Curse of Mortality, and Swift Deconstruction. While these lines were individually not overperforming, in combination they resulted in far more damage than was healthy to allow to continue. Further changes to these or other lines may occur in the future.

*** AA ***

- Corrected an issue where the 'Buy All' button for Mercenary AA Abilities was not properly checking remaining points and prerequisite ranks.

*** NPCs ***

*** Miscellaneous ***

- Fixed the exit from Velketor's Labyrinth in Torment of Velious to deposit folks in the Great Divide rather than Eastern Wastes.
- Fixed a longstanding zone instability problem related to fellowship campfires.
- Merged groups will no longer include offline members in the creation of a new group. They will need to be invited to the group again if they log back in.

*** UI ***

- Added in the Item Compare feature.
- - You can now easily identify the gains and losses of equipping an item or which slot to equip it in to gain the most benefit.
- - To use this, inspect any equippable or augment item and select the currently equipped item in the new dropdown box you want to compare to.
- - This will allow you to see all the relevant equipment traits, stats, and effects that would be added or removed and any value differences.

- Messages about pending overflow items when logging in will now be displayed with the System Messages filter instead of showing up with Spell Failures.
- Fixed a typo in the Server Transfer Window.

- Changed -
EQUI_ItemDisplay.xml
EQUI_Templates.xml

Well Met Norrath!


It’s been a bit of time since we last spoke, and I thought there wouldn’t be a better time than before our 22nd Anniversary.

It’s been almost a year since I was introduced to you as the Head of Studio for Darkpaw, and it’s certainly been an interesting one. I wanted to take a moment to reflect on the past year as well as the last 22 years that y’all have been part of our lives.

I’d like to first take a moment to recognize Alan VanCouvering, who you all know better as Absor, he has spent 20 years as part of the EverQuest family and we couldn’t make Norrath what it is without him.

I’m excited to share that we’ve hired several more designers and engineers to once again fill the ranks of the Faceless Ones. While you may have already seen the work of a few the others are deep in training learning the ins and outs of our code and the wends and ways of our stories. I can’t wait for you to see the fruits of their labor. Stay tuned, there are more things on the horizon. If you are interested in joining the Faceless Ones, please be sure to check out our eldritch links, we’re looking for heroic and creative souls to join our ranks.

Last year we switched up the previous release cadence of our TLPs for the launches of Aradune and Rizlona. We have decided to shift our launch window again this year, and we will be merging an additional server. Keep an eye out on the news and announcements forum for more information in the coming months.

And last but not least, we’re celebrating 22 years of Norrath. In addition to previously released anniversary bonus, quests and missions, we’re also introducing two new quests, a brand new mission, new rewards, and new merchant vendor items. Finally, if you are an All Access member and log in between March 16 at 12 AM PDT and April 20 at 10 PM PDT, you will receive an XP potion, the Othmir Fez, and one Hero’s Forge unlocker!

It is both a thrill and an amazing blessing to think about the fact that we’ve had 22 years of sharing stories and adventures together and there are many more to come.

Eyes On The Horizon,
Jenn Chan

Head of Studio, Darkpaw Games

[IMG]

It's that time of year in Norrath again! Tomorrow we celebrate the day we first stepped foot into the world we know and love. So thank you for twenty-two years of slaying those dragons, finding new adventures every day with your friends, and exploring the realms of Norrath and beyond. Here are a few of the things you can expect in game, and stay tuned tomorrow for the launch of one last thing.

Logging in between 12 AM PDT on March 16 through 11 PM on March 31 will net you that yearly 50% Bonus XP.

All Access members logging in between 12 AM PDT on March 16 - 10 PM PDT on April 20 will receive the following for their account (Please keep in mind this is one per account not character).

  • 1x Goblet of Adventure III
  • 1x Othmir Fez Hat Ornament
  • 1x Hero's Forge Unlock

We have 2 new quests and a new mission this year that will net you anniversary point, a Horn of Unity upgrade, and maybe an augment or two!

And last but certainly not least, check out the merchant for new items including a mount, Gnoll pup illusion, buffing food, and a new set of Ornaments!


We hope you enjoy all our anniversary offerings and have an amazing time in Norrath!

February 17, 2021
_____________________

*** Highlights ***

- Changed some of the modern Spell Casting Proc items so they won't trigger from other proc effects or twincast. This is a step, but not the entire solution, to reduce raid lag. Recursive proc casting is causing a huge amount of spells to be cast in a short time.
- Many changes have been made to Epic 1.0 quests. See the Quests & Events sections for details.
- All wares sold by Morton Stonebreaker in Western Wastes have had a pricing decrease.


*** Items ***

- Marionette puppet familiars can now be placed in a real estate without looking like a brown bag.

- Merchants that sell the 'Tracker's Water Extractor' will now carry an unlimited stock of this item.
- Changed some of the modern Spell Casting Proc items so they won't trigger from other proc effects or twincast. This is a step, but not the entire solution, to reduce raid lag. Recursive proc casting is causing a huge amount of spells to be cast in a short time.


*** Quests & Events ***

- Paladin and Rogue Epic: Reduced the respawn time for the Oracle of K'Arnon from about 7 hours to 2 hours.
- Paladin Epic: Lich of Miragul will now spawn 35 hours after being killed. There will now be a delay for between 5 and 14 hours before it will spawn for the first time.
- Druid and Ranger Epic: Venril Sathir's remains will spawn every 20 hours instead of just over 26 hours. This will increase the window to access this NPC for quest hand-ins.
- Magician Epic: Undertow (and its placeholder) will spawn every 6 hours instead of just over 7 hours.
- Monk Epic changes:
- - Increased the chance for Targin the Rock from 5% to 15% and Raster of Guk from 2% to 10%.

- - Vessel Drozlin and Wraith of a Shissar will now respawn 9 hours after being killed and from 5 to 14 hours after a zone or server reset.
- - Verina Tomb will now respawn 13 hours after being killed and from 5 to 14 hours after a zone or server reset.
- - The One Key, Lost Scroll, and Charm and Sacrifice have had their respawn time reduced from 24 to 5 hours.

*** NPCs ***

- All wares sold by Morton Stonebreaker in Western Wastes have had a pricing decrease.


*** Overseer ***

- Changed how Overseer quests load and save as a speculative fix to the bug where Overseer quests sometimes disappear. As part of this change, all Overseer Active Quests have been deleted. For the inconvenience, all players who have used Overseer before should have an Overseer Agent Pack available in /itemoverflow.


*** Miscellaneous ***

- Made the following changes to guild halls to prevent them from being removed when a player deletes their character or server transfers:
- - Placed guild halls no longer have an item owner, instead, they are owned by the guild.
- - Only the guild leader will be able to put a placed guild hall in their inventory.
- - Anyone with Move-Item access will be able to adjust a guild hall's placement.
- Activated combat skills (ex: kick, bash) with reuse times affected by haste or slow effects can now only be slowed to a maximum of 2x their base reuse time.
- - This ensures that skills activated while you are heavily slowed will no longer be locked out for exceptionally long periods of time.
- Marketplace - Corrected an issue where additional Mount Key Ring Slots were not visible for purchase.
- Fixed a bug that caused group invites to someone that has a shortened version of your name to not function.

EQ Update #1

Many updates the past month.

A ton of CoV info entered in. We're still missing a handful of CoV collections so keep uploading them! (Thanks Adetia!)

Thanks to Drewinette and Cylius for filling in the gaps where we were missing CoV info.

I've created entries for CoV raids if you feel like sharing info on those. Also Morton Stonebreaker should have all the raid items you can buy.
