    - When receiving a Krono through the parcel system, the Krono is automatically credited to your account. The parcel you actually receive is only a receipt for the Krono. A message will now appear when retrieving a Krono parcel in order to explain this fact.
    - Fixed an issue that was causing mercenaries to suspend themselves in certain locations in The Bloodfields.
    - Fixed an armor appearance issue related to illusions.

    - Newly formed fear creatures in Heart of Fear zones should no longer linger indefinitely at the gestation crystals that spawned them.

    I suspect it'll be at least an hour from now before the server starts to come down.

  7. JChan Developer

    Thanks for hanging in there. We're doing some additional prep work before this update that we don't normally do.

    I'll try to stay up but if it's at least 90 mins & possibly more I'm not sure I'll make it but we'll see

    Awesome about MPG's. long overdue, the second one, it has been on those "Other" servers for years, and I always thought it was odd that it showed up there before it was done here, kuddos for making this finally happen.

    No mention to exalted augment crafting on progresion servers? We are just missing 1 merchant to sell the books for crafting them :(

    Comparatively, exalted aguments + serpent seals are to TSS raid gear what eminent + last blood was to DoDH raid gear, so even if they were put later, they still belong to the server progresion-wise (i mean, we got defiant too)
  13. Beimeith Augur

    It looks like when you first login the game refunds the old Pre-consolidated AAs but it doesn't reset the "Assigned" count. When it then purchases the new consolidated AA lines it adds to the count, giving you a much higher Assigned count.

    Zoning fixed it however, but I still thought I should mention it.
  14. Marton Augur

    Good news. Thank you.

    Any chance to changing requirements for old raids? Pretty please ... ;)

    So I started to think ... now that there are Hyperlinks, what about all those hundreds of old quests that no one has found ever, do those now have Hyperlinks? So I started to run all over Antonica, so far I have come up with one quest and one dialouge that gives activity updates of players on the server that neither have references to in ZAM or on google. Off to keep looking.

    Rethink this what happens if some one bought one from bazaar via the parcel system for use for a friend or another account?
  17. Rainbowdash Augur

    Best. Patch. In the history. Of EQ patches..... <3

    It works exactly the same as before. The mechanic isn't changing. When you get a Krono via parcel, it gets credited to your account. This is not the same as being consumed. You receive a "phantom Krono" or "receipt" in your mailbox, but the actual krono has already been linked to your account. This happens as soon as it's sent. The "fix" is just the addition of text explaining that.
  19. Yinla Augur

    This the bird baths ?

    If so can we keep the ones we purchased for the Guild Halls?
