    This update has completed.

    With the changes to Hero's Forge armor, we are aware that several sets are exhibiting errors (invisible armor, wrong textures, wrong geometry, et cetera). We expect to have a client update tomorrow to address these problems, but in the meantime we need players to report these armor problems so we can confirm they're fixed following the update.

    If you have found a problem with any Hero's Forge armor sets, please report them in this thread using the following format:

    Character Name:
    Character Race:
    Character Gender:
    Armor Set Name: (Be sure to include whether the problem exists with the old versions or the new versions or both)
    Armor Piece(s) with the issue: (Head, Arms, Wrists, Hands, Chest, Legs, or Feet)

    Thanks for your help!

    - Added the ability for EQ to set its affinity to all cores when starting up. This can be done by modifying the eqclient.ini value for the instance to -1. For example, to set your second instance of EQ to run on all cores add "CPUAffinity1=-1" to the [Defaults] section of eqclient.ini. Note: if this causes problems for you, please report the issue in /bug and change the CPUAffinity value back to the value it was before you changed it.

    - Changed -

    Still no fix for Glyph/Third spire not working together for rogues?

    Seriously its been like 3 months. Has the Glyph of Cataclysm stacking issue even been looked at?

    [13188] Outrider's Accuracy
    Target: Single
    Range: 200′
    Beneficial: Blockable
    Casting: 0s
    Duration: 36s (6 ticks), Extend: Yes
    1: Inhibit Combat
    2: Increase Hit Damage by 20%
    4: Increase Chance to Hit by 100%
    5: Increase Min Hit Damage by 10%

    This was just added to what appears to be rank 1 of Outrider's Accuracy. Not sure if it's an error or what.

    Undefeated blade still in need of retunes thanks.. remove it from hunter credit, retune it, or remove it from the game I do not care which but pick one and get it done.

    Current risk reward for it is way out of whack.
  9. Kelefane Augur

    Care to elaborate which weapons? I know that the H2H weapons dont want to drop from Xorrb 2 or Velishan. Is that an example?
    Is this across the board on all Shadow of Fear raid loot? Even group gear? How big is the increase? Any examples?
  10. Caudyr Augur

    For the first one...that stinks but it's not unexpected. It will still work on our AA buffs like Envenomed Blades though, right?

    The "Jagged Slice" line that you're referring to...that's actually the Jugular Lacerate (this is the highest lvl version of this ability) line, right? Also...these are going to be on three separate timers and not have the 3 moved to the same timer (though different from what they were on before), right?

    How about the Heros Forge Sets missing robes have these finally been added?
  12. Liliana Augur

    Updated Heros forge models looking pretty good. I like that we can change them back and forth from old to new. Some pieces almost look too tight, plate on a few toons looked skin tight. A couple sets have different graphics, blood forged leather looks very different now. I like it, and my monk no longer looks like he's packin a diaper

    Anyone have pics of new armor from the shissar fangs?
  13. Beimeith Augur

    Did someone let Morituus design the new Ssraeshzian armor? When you see it you will know what I am talking about.

    If anyone else can post some pics of the new armor styles it would be appreciated. Interested to see robes especially.
  15. Beimeith Augur

    If you are referring to the changes, robes weren't changed as far as I can tell, and the only new armor I saw is the Ssra armor that the npc is wearing. That is the only new achievement for the armor sets anyway.

    Here is a compare/contrast picture of cloth armor to see changes:

    You can see the biggest changes are in the boots and arms, but the chest (particularly shoulders) and pants are slimmer as well. The helm doesn't seem to have changed much.

    I would like to point out this is not my normal style, I left all my HF stuff in my house and forgot it doesn't /testcopy over, so I had to rummage through the Test Server bazaar and it was slim pickin's, heh.

  16. Ishtass Augur

    Thanks Beimeith, those look way better.

    Moving Phantom off the synergy timer is very nice, thank you. I'm a little disappointed in moving projections to 18 though. If we're getting a new timer, would have preferred splitting something off that was a little more useful. Also, putting Eye of the Storm on the same timer as Swift Reflexes might hurt raiders a bit if they have long sustained fights, but I'll leave that question up for active raiders. But regardless, an appreciated change on the Phantom/Synergy split.
  17. jeskola Augur

    new hotzones added. Doesn't appear to be a new aug quest from Skal or anyone though. Coming later or not at all? Unsure if there are any new hotzones items or augs dropping.
  18. fransisco Augur

    what are the new hotzones?
  19. Fanra Augur

    I think you mean July 26th, 2013, not July 26th, 2014 :)

    Thank you.

    However, I think you mean to say, "For example, to set your second instance of EQ to NOT run on all cores add "CPUAffinity1=-1" to the [Defaults] section of eqclient.ini."

    Or something like that. Because it seems to be contradictory to say to change it back to original (which is not on all cores) by setting it to run on all cores.


    Oh, as an aside, let me give JChan and the entire programming team a long overdue big THANKS for fixing most of the crashing and other issues, as well as many game improvements. You guys are rocking.

    Erudite cloth

    Chest & leg slots - Valiant & nobles look identical as do Eternal grove and Sylvan and insidious skirt part has lost its shape it is now level the same as the plain ebon, veridian, auburn etc.
    The skirt part on legs really should be part of the tunic as the way it is it makes it impossible to mix and match those slots.

    Robes don't appear to have a new look.

    Old eternal grove legs show through on parts of the new violet feet.

    Need to go out now, I'll do some more checks later
