    *** Laurion's Song ***
    Welcome to EverQuest: Laurion's Song, the 30th expansion for EverQuest!
    A door appears in the Plane of Tranquility, and the heroes of Norrath walk through to find a warm and cozy-looking building. Light from the windows illuminates a clearing in a forest. Music and voices as well as the tantalizing smell of cooking meat and mead drift on the air. The inn’s presence invites adventurers to rest and revel after exhausting and dangerous exploits. Welcome to the Realm of Heroes, the place where the greatest heroes go when their adventures are over. Can you discover what the mystery is that lies under the façade of comfort and revelry?

    Any rough ETA on server up? Doesn't need to be exact, just looking to plan.

    I have other stuff I can go do, just trying to work out about when it will be worth checking in every 20 minutes instead of hovering the whole time.

    I logged when it went down last night and figured it would be up this morning so my gut expectation was clearly wrong hehe.

    Blunted Blade disc was Introduced with Call of the Forsaken expansion, level 99.

    There is nothing to upgrade the stun component of Blunted Blades disc so it’s capped at level 103.

    Can a specific AA line be implemented so the stun component of Blunted Blade can be upgraded and remain on pace with the damage upgrades received?

    Can we have an NPC at this new random door in Plane of Tranquility also explain the Realm of Heroes and related happenings, rather than just patch notes?

    Lore and Norrathian continuity.

    I’ve asked a few times for the disc to be change to N (level) + 3 = Stun level for a few years now without success. Divine call works in that regard (when they code it to actually pull mobs). Anyway, I clearly second raising the stun of this disc.

    Revamp our alliance as just another priest alliance at this point. And add our burst line to the acceptable spells to trigger other priest alliances.

    Champions Oath is a year late. No word on it is really disappointing communication given how much more transparent the company has been attempting to be.
