    Still waiting.

    The waiting is always the hardest part
  5. Darchon_Xegony Augur

    Druid/Shaman DoT mana cost reduced to reflect reduced damage potential.
    TLP Blocked buff fix
    AoCs for PoR instances

    These are the things I want.
  6. Tiggold Augur

    TLP shouldn't be asking for anything. You wanted old school EQ then play it on an AOL account with 56k modem and don't complain :)

  7. Sheex Goodnight, Springton. There will be no encores.

    Do TLP servers get the time out regen? Do they get to use new UI or do they stare at a book when med'ing?
  9. Darchon_Xegony Augur

    OOC regen comes in from TSS expansion, Book medding was pulled from the code when Luclin launched a new user interface and client.

    TLPs account for something like 30% of the servers right now? There's 13 regular severs (if you include Vox) and 3 special servers (if you include Brekt/Zek). So 16 servers 3 of which are basically dead on current content. TLPs have 5 servers (if you include Fippy), about to be 6. Of which only 1 is dead. So yea, 30% is about right.

    I fully expect a few notes every patch to relate to them specifically.
  10. fransisco Augur

    Where is that stat from?
  11. Darchon_Xegony Augur

    The server list? There are 16 servers not locked to a certain expansion, there are 5 (soon 6) that are. 6/22 = 27.3%. I rounded up to an even 30%, you could also round down to 25% if you want.
  12. fransisco Augur

    oh I miss-read. I thought you said 30% of accounts. Sorry.
  13. Darchon_Xegony Augur

    Nah they will never release those numbers. The best gauge would probably be the Low-Medium-High rankings on the server status lists. But even then we have no idea what those mean.

    On topic... still no notes :/.
  14. Captain Video Augur

    A few of us are hoping for/expecting a hotfix to deal with the lost combine items bug, which has global effect.

    *** Highlights ***

    *** Items ***

    - Procs on weapons can now activate if the item has a click cooldown that is different from the spell activated on a proc.
    - Removed the small knockback from Rain of the Overthere on Hoarded Worker Sledgemallet and Jeweled Hoarded Worker Sledgemallet
    - Newbie starting tunics can no longer be traded and have no value.
    - Fixed the spelling of Deathseeker on three items.

    *** Tradeskills ***

    - Fixed a problem where combine failures were not always returning the tools used.
    - The recipe for Scaleborn Warmonger Coat now requires Combine Draconic Scale Transmogrificant.

    *** Quests And Events ***

    - End of Empire (Mission and Raid) - fixed a bug that could cause the Unhammered and No Outbreaks achievements to fail when they should not.
    - Hoshkar (Ring of Scale) - Smoothed out the intervals at which Hoshkar casts his spells. They should no longer cast at the same time.
    - Balance of Power (Raid) - fixed an issue that would prevent completion of the "Ghosted" achievement.
    - Jondin's Fern Flower quest can now be completed.
    - Crypt of Sul Heroic Adventures - Removed an NPC that should not have spawned in this mission, and it will be floating skeletons as was originally intended.
    - Reduced the level of many Heroic Adventure NPCs. This mostly affected rares in The Broken Mirror.
    - Vex Thal - Bosses will now tether in the Agent of Change instances.
    - Vex Thal - Akhevan Warders will again banish people.
    - Fell Foliage (Mission) - Lowered the maximum number of players to this mission to 6.

    *** Spells ***

    - Detrimental beam spells no longer attempt to hit many types of invalid targets such as friendly NPCs (including pets), auras, and invulnerable NPCs. Beneficial beam spells now include friendly NPCs and pets, and exclude enemy NPCs and players.
    - Spell/Tome reward sets from Ring of Scale will now hide abilities you have already memorized when you view them. If you have used a tablet or symbol before this change but not selected a reward you will have to reuse the tablet or symbol to do so.
    - Moved all melee timers up one ID in order to fix several timing issues with procs.
    - Bard - Corrected an issue where certain songs would attempt to begin playing twice.
    - Druid - Strength of the Wildstalker should now prevent the same or lower ranks of Brell's Blessed Bastion from landing.
    - Druid - Corrected the description of Chill of the Wildtender.
    - Druid - Reduced mana costs on most DoT spells to better reflect the damage they do.
    - Shaman - Increased the damage on Curse of Sisslak so that it is an upgrade to Bane as intended. Increased damage on higher level spells in the Blood of Saryrn DoT line as a result.
    - Shaman - Lowered mana costs on most spells in the combined DoT lines. Fast DoTs are all more efficient than their parent spells.
    - Warrior - Corrected the descriptions for the Scowl line of abilities.

    *** AA ***

    - Magician - Fixed a bug where rank 1 of Frenzied Burnout only increased 1-Hand Blunt damage rather than all melee damage.
    - All - Quick Draw has been refunded.

    - NPCs will no longer summon or cast spells on the corpses of players who are hovering and had previously DoTed them.
    - Reduced the level of many Heroic Adventure NPCs. This mostly affected rares in The Broken Mirror.

    - Veeshan's Peak (Ring of Scale) - Changed the factions used by NPCs in the zone to be distinct from the faction in the original Veeshan's Peak. Faction loss for killing the Denizens of Veeshan's Peak will be heavy. They do not like when mortals kill their kin.
    - Overthere (Ring of Scale) - Corrected the spelling of Fereth.
    - Mercenary Liaison NPCs now have a more consistent alt tag and spelling.
    - In the Tower of Frozen Shadow, killing an enraged vampire on floor 7 will no longer spawn Cara Omica on floor 4.

    - Many rares have had their spawn chance or spawn time adjusted.

    *** Mercenaries ***

    *** Collections ***

    *** Progression Servers ***

    - Fixed an issue where the game was not properly allowing /blockspell commands and would clear itself upon zoning.
    - Progression Server Instances - Added instance for Theater of Blood. An agent of change can be found in Arcstone (once the Prophecy of Ro expansion is open). The Twisted Harmonic Chime will be needed to obtain and enter the zone.
    - Some doors in Unrest will be locked on servers that have not yet unlocked Ruins of Kunark. You may need to find the key, or bring a rogue proficient with lock picks.
    - - These keys will no longer drop on servers that have unlocked Ruins of Kunark.

    - Many original EverQuest zones have had their experience modifier adjusted for balance reasons and/or to encourage variety in leveling.

    - Fixed an issue where the map window would not open the map toolbar.
    - Fixed an issue where the Task Overlay Window was not respecting user options.

    - Changed -

    *** Previously Updated ***

    - Drusella's Vault - This event should activate properly again.

    Good guy devs

  19. Mithra Augur

    - Encounters that have a 100% chance to generate a rare now have a delay before they will spawn. These encounters now have a respawn variance as well.
    - Many rares have had their spawn chance or spawn time adjusted.

    Why do they have to be vague?
  20. Karhar Dream Crusher

    Removed the potion belt and added a new hotbar. Hotbars now go to 11. If its the same as it is fine, but if its the current system its a bad change.
