    *** Highlights ***

    - New AAs and spells are now available for all classes! Visit the vendors in the guard camp of Ethernere-Tainted West Karana to find the new spells.
    - Catch a ride on a new Black Wolf mount! Coming soon to the Marketplace!
    - Warm winds begin to blow in Ethernere-Tainted West Karana and the South Desert of Ro. Winds like these must portend the arrival of something or someone. Stay alert for when the time comes!
    - Optimizations have been made to the Tower of Rot, which should improve framerates in the zone and the raid.


    *** Items ***

    - Increased the recast time on the Miniature Horn of Unity to 10 minutes, but the effect is much friendlier with stacking.
    - Added tribute values to several items which had none in Call of the Forsaken.
    - Shroud of the Forgotten will now correctly evolve into a cloak. This item once again has a chance to drop from rare NPCs in the Tower of Rot zone, heroic adventure, and mission.
    - Heroic Characters will no longer be offered heroic-only augment rewards for quests in early House of Thule zones if the characters have already received the augment rewards for a particular slot.
    - Replaced the non-functional Illusions of Grandeur focus on Enchanter robes with a new focus that reduces the recast time of Phantasmal Unity.
    - Added a new /destroyitem command that behaves like clicking the Destroy button with an item on the cursor.


    *** Quests & Events ***

    - Warm winds begin to blow in Ethernere-Tainted West Karana and the South Desert of Ro. Winds like these must portend the arrival of something or someone. Stay alert for when the time comes!
    - Narius' Plan - Jrint the Scout has hidden himself in a different location of Tower of Rot, away from the Corpseflower.
    - The Search for the Ultimate Story - If you are on the proper step of this quest, you will be able to configure your Clockwork Key using the front door to Meldrath's Majestic Mansion.
    - Raid chests in the Ancient Heroes quests from Old Man McKenzie can now be opened with 6 or more players present.


    *** Spells ***

    *** Tradeskills ***

    - Orphic cards used in research now correctly produce Strength of the Gladetender Rk. II instead of Strength of the Tracker Rk. II.

    - Magi Rune recipes have been changed to use the general Spell Research Kit.
    - Tradeskilled items that were triggering with incorrect skill usage have been corrected.

    - The two-handed piercing skill has been factored into Weapon Proficiency achievements.
    - The "Swing and a Miss" challenge achievement is now worth 10 points instead of 40.
    - The "The Fall of Lord Bayle: Challenge of Toughness" challenge achievement is now worth 10 points instead of 40.
    - The description for the "Figurine Collector's Chest: Denizens" achievement now correctly describes the collectibles as "Denizens," not "Dolls."


    *** Miscellaneous ***

    - Optimizations have been made to the Tower of Rot, which should improve framerates in the both the zone and the raid.
    - The ", Spirit of Norrath" and "the Adventurous" suffix titles are now applied appropriately.
    - The Icebreaker in Iceclad Ocean and the Pirate Runner's Skiff that ferry travelers between the Northern Desert of Ro and Iceclad Ocean have resumed their operations.

    This is a great addition, thank you. Would it also be possible to get an EQType (to make a button) to do the same thing for custom UI makers?

    No fix to Wizard AA Arcane Fusion that was broken in the previous patch? Just undo the nerf that broke it.

    What's the hold up ?
  6. Coruth Augur


    Can someone explain these Bard Changes?

    Will it mean if I hit dirge on someone while I am doing a normal melody dirge wont refresh?
  7. Reht Augur

    Sounds to me like the AA is now going to function like a song.
  8. rune00 Augur

    Can you please let us know about the patches at least 24 hours before you take down the servers? It's hard to believe this info isn't available internally until an hour or so before patch.
  9. EQTrixy Elder

    I bought the two new rank 1 spells for my level 100 Shaman from the vender in ETWK.

    Crippling Counterbias - Req Level: 99
    Flock's Breath - Req Level: 98

    Under the description for both it says... Level Needed: SHM(255)

    When I tried to mem them in my spell book I get... Your class can never use the Spell: Crippling Counterbias ... and ... Your class can never use the Spell: Flock's Breath.
  10. Tlail Journeyman

    Hi Folks !

    Bought Corpseflower's Assonant Binding Rk.1 and Rk.2 and both were not usable. The song description window says " Level Needed: BRD(255) on both songs.

    "Perhaps we should stop working on new Black Wolf mount! to fix this?" -- a dev, probably

  12. Rhymez Thebard Elder

    Yup. So now there is no more re-agro after using dirge and then fading (doesn't act like a dot anymore).

    Bard - When actively singing or using /melody, the song or melody will be interrupted when using an AA with a casting time.
    Just means that shouldn't allow you to cast AA's with cast times while running melody (doesn't affect instant cast clickies).

    Staunch recovery still doesn't refill mana.


    Bards, rejoice: drakes can no longer hold weapons in their mouths!
    Bard nerf *sad face*.
  13. crieger Journeyman

    It will continue to refresh the dirge like any other song until the dirge is cancelled with /stopsong or left clicking a spell gem, or if you obscure yourself/run out of range.

    It will allow it, it will just stop your current melody to activate the (cast time) AA.

    No un-linking of cold/fire Remote nukes for Druid. /cry
  15. guado Augur

    Druid Spells, Rank 1 and Rank 3 are Level 255 restricted and unable to scribe. On Test.
  16. Narknon Augur

    ToRot exits are missing from in zone, HAs bugged where certain areas are blocked by rocks that shouldnt be.

    More specifically- in ToR HA, the step after "clear a path to the portal." The tower scion, the portal and the commander were completely obscured by a huge rock.
  18. jeskola Augur

    I reported this weeks ago, but it only happened after an evac before.

    from 5/31:

    While fixing stacking issues. Can you make Outrider's Attack and Symphony of Battle stack finally? Pretty sick of clicking SoB every 6 mins. Also ranger buffs + werewolf illusion would be nice fix as well (solt illusion clicky)
