    Cant log in and check as I am raiding atm but does:
    "- Master Vule, the Silent Tear - Event has received various minor changes and improvements."

    include increasing the number of people flagged per kill? And can anyone tell what the lockout is when you complete the event?
  3. Kohnn Lorekeeper

    Any update on when the Hero's Resolution 21/25 issue will be resolved?

    powersource seemed bugged using geomantic steelstone at 0% giving full stats did bug in game. On live
  6. Brohg Augur

    Rounding error. You just have less than 1% remaining. When it's actually empty the stats won't be added.

    I dont see a fix for Bard alliance. I hope you havent forgotten about us.

    Alliance of Sticks and Stones is supposed to trigger a fulmination if 3 insults are used by other bards. Its not working for the new insults.
  8. Trafthek New Member

    I don't see it in the list. PLEASE fix Cleric Assurance overwriting all versions of Druid Skin!!!
  9. valiantSeven Elder

    Can we expect more suspensions for "bypassing the intended flagging requirements?" :rolleyes:
    Huna likes this.
  10. Cainen Elder

    So we just did Vule on test. It looks like EVERYONE will need the flag in order to zone into the instance with Vule. Even if someone else requests it you will not get ported if you dont have access.The lockout is 6 days 12 hours.

    It also looks like he only drops 2 eyes still, however as we were just plowing him with a 105, I cant comment on how difficult the encounter is now. The instance is capped at 36 people. Hopefully some of the changes we so he can be killed with 2-3 groups since if not, flagging a whole raid to get vule access and only getting 2 eye per is going to take a 2-3 weeks of our 8 week expansion.
  11. svann Augur

    Will unkeyed people be able to zone in if 85% of the raid is keyed, or no? It sounds like a no, but that goes against umpteen years of flagging tradition.

    Thanks for posting the info. That lockout seems excessive.
  13. EQ_Player03 New Member

    Confirmed: "Galeth Veredeth" is missing from Thulisaur Island.
  14. High Voltage Elder

    Now I wish I had exploited and taken the suspension when I had the chance. Those folks that did will be like lmao now.


    Would be better to solve the underlying problems than trying to circumvent the symtoms.

  15. Jaerlyn Augur

    And what underlying problem are you thinking this matches up with?

    Current content is easy. HA's are -stupidly- easy. The only underlying "problem" here is that you prefer to take the easier route. (Based on your comments.)
  16. Yinla Augur

    Cleric Assurance not fixed to not overwrite druid skin?

    New beastlord abilities not fixed to be better than the standard kick?
  17. Yinla Augur

    Is this excluding or an example?
    If excluding when will it be fixed, Jilare gives the faction tasks in Shards Landing.

    These changes just for 106+?

    Can you also please increase the drop rate for Kunark Conflagrant Powder this is used in all potions, its rareness is making it not worth making potions this expansion and sticking to last expansion potions.

    Having completed all ROS progression I collected only 10 of these, the rest of the group collected roughly the same. If you want us to use ROS potions the drop rate needs to increased especially as things like Xygoz's Tonic uses 3 powders.

    As I don't see in patch notes and it's something that most of the times has an easy fix ...

    One of ground spawn collections in SF the 'ashbreather xxx' or something like that, that should appear on SW area of the zone, must have one/multiple non reachable/hidden/underworld spawns, because at least on AB, you can only find them (thats why some, including myself have completed it) when the zone is started, base or instanced, because after some hours you won't find it anymore (I was missing one item and looked around for 5-6 hours and never seen even a single drop of this one while I was able to pick dozens of the other ground spawn collection on the other sides of the zone, I had to wait until a new instance triggered as a consequence of population overload on base instance, then /pick on the new zone, and there after some minutes the those same ground spawns started to appear)

    You may probably check it before the patch on any server where base zone has already been up for long enough
  19. Zaph Augur


    Im assuming this is just going to be 1 line entry into every xml (defaultcolor=200 or something I guess), anyone able to highlight what the "global" change is, as im unable to access test, and this is something that could wreck every ui compatibility ...
  20. Zhaunil_AB Augur

    yay

    Is this the recepies i know or those that i am missing? :)
    Either way, a much welcome addition!

    Aw :(
    why?!?

    *sigh*

    Where's the correction of the max-level for Warlord's Grasp? :/

    This looks like an awful long list of changed UI files for the listed UI changes - was that really needed? :eek:
    As was said above: i hope it's nothing "required".
