As we get closer to the end of the year, most of the team's efforts are focused on working on EverQuest’s 23rd expansion. In preparation for the expansion, our August update focuses on AA consolidation and tuning systems. This update is scheduled for Wednesday, August 17, 2016, and we wanted to give everyone a preview at some of the things that will be coming later this month. In this update, we’ll have: Many AA Ability Consolidations Improvements to how Runes Stack Adjustments to Riposte Additional Combat Balance Added Quest Flag to MANY Classic Items The most extensive section of the August update notes will be the list of AA ability lines that have been merged with their activated counterparts. As always, we value your feedback on these upcoming changes, but we ask that you check them out for yourself first (on test or on live servers). We’re grateful for your continued support! For additional information regarding some of the more notable things that players can expect from this update, see the post here.
