    - Song: Saryrn's Scream of Pain is now available on Minstrel Silnon when Planes of Power unlocks.

    *** UI ***

    Would it be possible to get the HH Seb event or at least the Trakanon raid extended for at least a week in order for the players on Test to be able to experience this content in a working fashion? While we where able to zone into the raid, it was critically broken for us on Test. With this fix coming out today, we basically have just a few hours to experience the working content, which isn't exactly feasible on such short notice.

    This is a cool change and makes getting these much less of a hassle for full groups, I am curious however why "a Shrewd Dragorn" from Dranik's Hollows instances which drops the Two-Toned signet was not also given the same treatment. Either way a nice change.
  5. Orbital101 Augur

    Shadow of Luclin as Hunter of Jaggedpine Forest again which is also in Old world Everquest Hunter. Plz save us from this nightmare!
  6. Orbital101 Augur

    Legacy of Ykesha have Hunter of the Cavern of Exile which was also in Kunark.
  7. Orbital101 Augur

    Though, i'm seeing some achievement with(New Monsters) but still lots of the same so im guessing its intended. Im going through the list while I label these monsters down!
  8. GoldenFrog Augur

    Do we know if the bugged Hunters from previous were addressed? Timorous Deep, WW, and Veeshan's Peak? Don't wanna spend time testing something not addressed.
  9. Soju Elder

    Any chance to get some sort of filter added to this like maybe /outputfile missingSpells All, /outputfile missingSpells rk1, /outputfile missingSpells rk2, /outputfile missingSpells rk3

    It is a very nice feature, but its flooded with spells that you have, just not the same rank.

    Anyway, just a request, not a huge deal. I can always rip it into excel or something to filter it if not.

    1. There is still no DPS belt upgrade in EOK even after you said it would be re-coded.
    2. Several EOK Charms are a downgrade to TBS charms. Another re-code that never happened.
    3. For at least a year now, Shamen and Enchanter DPS is still higher than Most Mele DPS. Re-balance was discussed and no action taken.
  11. GoldenFrog Augur

    For SK - it's including spells which I do not believe are in the game at all:

    72Shroud of the Nightborn Rk. III
    72Blood of the Blacktalon Rk. III
    73Drink of Decomposition Rk. III
    73Dark Bargain Rk. III
    74Cloak of Corruption Rk. III
    75Remorseless Demeanor Rk. III

    Additionally it is including effects of spells such as the following, which are - of course - not missing. (And I have the spells in question so that's not the issue, either)

    (some samples):
    91Korum's Bite Recourse
    96Bond of Ralstok Recourse
    101NA Bond of Bonemaw Recourse III
    101Bonemaw's Bite Recourse
  12. Orbital101 Augur

    So after doing the progression to be able to do the Artisan's Prize I see that nothing is check in Planes of Power raid targets. We expecting to run this again or will there be some type of back logs? I even did some of the target on Xeg to /test today and it doesnt see them but does when doing it on test.?
  13. Silentchaos Augur

    My guess is whoever made these changes didn't know there were 3 instanced ones.
  14. svann Augur

    Any chance that fix could be applied to other instant click items that interrupt melody?
  15. GoldenFrog Augur

    This requires code and database flags that save the fact that you made the kills. These releases don't just add the check-boxes, but also the fact that it remembers you MADE the kill.

    There is no data to pull from to show you killed Vaniki and Grummus 1.0.

    Not until this release goes live.
  16. kizant Augur

    More like 1.5-2 unless your monks, rangers, rogues, etc are just huge slackers. Plus they've been slowly eating away at zerkers for a while now so it seems like they're trying to address things. No reason to complain too much. Plus I don't know enough to understand how big of a change this is but I haven't seen anyone joking about it like last one?
  17. Lerilon Lorekeeper

    Please, please also change the proc on the Darkened Faydark Blade Catcher. Nobody wants an AE proc these days. If you have more than one in camp, all but one are most likely mezzed, especially in the group game. And if you do have only one in camp, the 800 HP proc is quite a bit less than the 2000 HP procs on T1 EoK weapons. The ratio difference is so minor it almost makes the weapon a house wall decoration.
  18. segap Augur

    I can't recall the last time I used mez while using a real tank (and, yes, the tank I use is 100% group geared with no eok rares). It's nice to actually have weapons with choices. If you don't want an ae proc, there are several other choices. Why take away something that's different and allows people situational options?
  19. Quatreh Elder

    Live Disconserting:

    Increase your chance to critically hit with two-handed melee skills and frenzy by 221% and adds 53% damage bonus to all of your melee attacks for 0:03:00. (reuse 0:03:00.)

    Test Disconserting:

    Increase your chance to critically hit with two-handed melee skills and frenzy by 55% and adds 12% damage bonus to all of your melee attacks for 0:01:36. (reuse 0:03:00.)

    75% nerf of the disc ... gratz to become an old TBM zerker

    Are we expecting some type of reward for completing all of these Hunter achievements? Many did thinking there would be but now not many want to go through the 2 weeks nightmare we had to go through to spawn some of these rares..

    How about an aug that increase in power as you gain achievements that max out as the first aug been better then a piece of gear!
