EQ Update #2

Here is the last week worth of site updates.


Click Read more to see all the updates.

EQ Update #1

Starting off the new year with more updates. Mainly TBL updates.

New comments were caught up on Sunday.

TBL chase items were given a wiki page of their own here.

We finally got some server side things taken care of and have some more code updates to get pushed out once people get back in from the holidays.

We're still missing some item icons for some of the new TBL items, I'll get those fixed soon.

Click Read More to see all the updates.

Happy Holidays!

All of us here at Allakhazam wish you all Happy Holidays. Have a safe trip and have a good time!

 

EQ Update #108

In this update, many updates to various things, mainly The Burning Lands content.

I just wanted to thank those who are contributing to update information on The Burning Lands. Larth contributed quite a bit of quest information in beta and after release. Drewinette has been plugging quite a bit of stuff I didn't have access to in beta since I had no time to join any raids. Pretty much all my free time after I get home from work is updating things here on the site. One of these days I'll be able to get some free time to actually play again.

We're still waiting on ZAM ops to fix some things back behind the scenes so I can actually get spells, code, database updates and a few other things updated for the expansion. That probably won't happen until some time after Christmas/New Years.

Rswiders is still working on the item collector so hopefully at some point we'll have that up and running again.

EQ Update #107

In this update, all TBL armor now has a TBL expansion tag. All tier 1 raiding armor (not TS) have recipes as well.

All TBL augs have a expansion tag and those that are crafted are flagged as crafted. The TBL aug wiki page now is linked to all the items we have uploaded to the site.

All TBL weapons and shields have a expansion tag and each have a screenshot to show you what they look like. I'll get the page for weapons and shields built soonish.

Many more TBL items were given an expansion tag and flagged if they are crafted or not. We'll get recipes for those created when we get all the components into our item database.

Misc recipes I had made during beta were created. We're still missing quite a bit of the sub components in order to make other recipes. We'll have to wait until our item collector is running in order to get the those uploaded.

TBL Spell rank items are now attached to their ranked spell quest entries.

I decided to just list out the updates by date instead of trying to piece everything together. It's a pain in the butt to do so. It'll kinda of give everyone an idea of what went on each day.

Anyways, still plenty more to do. We'll get spells updated soon I hope. Ops needs to run a few things for me in order for us to be able to get spells updated. They are a bit busy right now.

_____________________


*** Highlights ***

- EverQuest's 25th expansion, The Burning Lands, is now live!
- Added the Faction Window to allow the quick viewing of your current faction standings. See the UI section below for details.
- Items will now display their lore text to players at level 50 and higher.


*** The Burning Lands ***

- The longstanding peace between the jann is over, and war has broken out between the djinn from the Plane of Air and the efreeti from the Plane of Fire! What has sparked this dispute and who will emerge victorious? Will you survive the Trials of Smoke and help end this conflict?
- Many items found in The Burning Lands will have a new stat called Luck. See the item section below for details.
- Players with The Burning Lands will have two new shared bank slots available.


*** Items ***

- Items will now display their lore text to players at level 50 and higher.
- Added a new stat, Luck, to many items found in The Burning Lands.
- - Luck can be found on new items and the amount of luck you have will influence the outcome of many skills, abilities, and spells. You can see the luck on items by inspecting them. Items with a percentage symbol next to their luck total can have their luck increased via item fusion (hover over the percentage for more information).
- - Many items with luck can utilize the Item Fusion Window to improve that item's luck stat. At the cost of one Crystallized Luck, this window allows you to fuse two items together (the base item and the component) to increase the luck on the base item. Fusing two items will result in the luck on the base item being increased and the component item will be destroyed. After fusing two items together, the base item will receive the higher luck of the two, plus one. For example, fusing a base item with 2 luck and a component at 4 luck will result in the base item having 5 luck.
- - Crystallized Luck can be purchased from Noble Exchange Merchants for platinum, from Loyalty Vendors, or from the Marketplace.
- Corrected an issue where players could equip multiple lore equipped items using bandolier.
- Upgraded the effect of Threads of Potential and Boon of the Soother.


*** Tradeskills ***

- Doing tradeskill combines that don't require a skill will no longer proc unrelated skills or abilities.
- Changed the name of two alchemy recipes to match the name of their products (Ward of Retribution, Wasp Swarm).


*** Spells ***

- Cleaned up messaging when an aura spell fails to hit a pet or mercenary due to being in a different environment type (such as water or lava) than the caster.
- Aura spells that kill their targets in one tick now properly report the death.
- Melody now skips to the next song if a recast timer hasn't elapsed, instead of interrupting the melody.
- Modern generic proc spells on items will no longer cause odd skill increases.
- Bard - Moved the Dirge of the Darkvine line of songs from Statistic Buffs -> Armor Class to Statistic Buffs -> Shielding since it adds shielding and not armor class. Extended the base duration to one minute as the line was originally intended to function. 


*** NPCs ***

- Fixed the bug that was causing Heratius Grolden in Tenebrous Mountains to spawn when killing the placeholder trigger NPCs instead of the rare trigger NPCs.


*** Progression Servers ***

- The Agent of Change will not appear in Cazic-Thule until Planes of Power has unlocked on the server.


*** Miscellaneous ***

- Corrected an issue where an issue with one of your characters could stop you from logging into your account altogether.


*** UI ***

- Added a Faction Window that allows you to check your reaction and standing with every group in EverQuest.
- - This new window can be accessed by clicking the EQ Button and selecting Character -> Faction Standings or by typing /faction.
- - Hovering over a faction name or reaction entry will display your current reaction value with a group as well as the number of points needed to reach the next reaction rank.
- - Hovering over the standing progress bar will display your current standing (how much you have done to help or hurt this group) as well as the minimum and maximum possible standing with the group.
- Items located in your Item Overflow will now be listed in the Find Item Window.
- Added Rampage, Wild Rampage, and Flurry tags messages to the full round of melee attacks. Removed the single line messages that indicated something flurried or rampaged.
- Consolidated many chat messages that were duplicates of melee and non melee hits, including: Flurry, Finishing/Crippling Blow, Assassinate, Deadly Strike, Slay Undead, Headshot, and critical spells. These messages no longer have a separate line of text, instead they end with an indication of the special attack type in parenthesis.
- Added an indicator for twincasted and critical damage over time spells.
- Corrected an issue where players could not make a hotkey for Remove Traps.
- Using the AA ability 'Buy All' button with purchase confirmations enabled will now display the number of ranks and total cost of the purchase. This applies to both player and mercenary AA purchases.
- Corrected an issue where a new group wouldn't display the role of a master looter for the leader in the group window.

EQ Update #105

In this update, many TBL NPC's were either created or updated with screenshots, locations and other info.

Many recipes were updated between Drewinette and Grizabelle.

Right now I am collecting info on spells and AA's for all classes in TBL. Once I get that done, I'll go back and update the rank spell quests for TBL and build the wiki pages as well for the spells. At some point I'll input AA's either into the TBL wiki or our AA database which needs a massive cleanup =\.

I have opened a couple TBL wiki pages so folks can view what has been done so far. The augmentation page and achievements. The augmentation page has dead links for now until we get items uploaded and recipes created when those items are uploaded. That page is also missing info on where these augs are from but we'll fill in the blanks as we get the info. Our item collector developer Rswiders has been working on updating the item collector with all the changes to items. Hopefully soon we'll be able to start uploading items.
