Nights of the Dead 2016 - Feedback and Bugs

Discussion in 'In Testing & Test Server Updates' started by Kaitheel, Sep 20, 2016.

    Nights of the Dead has been activated on Test server!

    Nights of the Dead brings goblins and ghoulies out from the shadows. Those inclined to celebrate the holiday through crafting will find a new book of recipes full of new house items being sold by official event merchants. And those feeling more adventurous can hunt ghosts in Antonica, and the Commonlands, or investigate the multiple haunted locations! Setri Lur'eth returns, and may or may not have another task for those willing (or not so willing) to help. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for special sparklies in spooky celebration spots! And remember, tricks and treats are the name of the game!

    * Well, almost its entirety. It turns out that a certain headless mob will not be accessible on Stormhold. "A lost necklace cannot be looted from A Gleaming Chest in The Hedge Hollow on the TLE server."

    For Stormhold is the Headless Horseman going to be of proper level so killable. Worried it might end up level 100!

    I was just checking out the new recipes.

    I had no issues making them or placing them. I don't see anything particularly strange about the graphics of any of them.
    One question though, is the Autumal Goldleaf Sapling supposed to be leafless? (just making sure, labeled autumnal it can go either way!)
  4. Tekka Well-Known Member

    Previous autumnal offerings have been vibrant orange and yellow.

    On live many trees, turtles, and players, are 'leafless' so it's likely related.
  5. Chikkin Well-Known Member

    a whole bunch of house plants from quests, merchants and crafted are missing foliage, the saddest has to be the claimed bonsais. As much as I love the idea of seasonal look on plants, whatever is happening on test and on live servers has to be a glitch

    ( I bugged it)
  6. Kasa Active Member

    Not sure if anyone has bugged the Guild Tactical Rally Banner missing its flag, but I am bug reporting it now.
  7. Niami DenMother Well-Known Member

    Nigglies while we wait for the graphics issue to be addressed for both Test and Live (assuming it has to do with appearance caches, but that's a wild guess on my part).

    The two (no-trade) housepets on the vendor are all lower case for naming, instead of mixed case. Is this intentional? "a bat colony" and "stonescale serpent"

    Also, while the initial post says "new petamorph wands", of the 6 wands on the vendor, only one of them (cackling skeleton) seems to be new. The others are already in EQ2Wire and so forth.

    And apropos of nothing ... holy smokes, it is raining in Vista! I think I need to stop testing and stare for a minute or two.
  8. Kasa Active Member

    Petamorph Wand: Sand Dune Razorclaw is new. :)
  9. Niami DenMother Well-Known Member

    Aha! I was going off EQ2U, and looking for things not yet discovered ... but it already has your disco info from today, Kasa. That'll teach me to schedule medical mayhem at the same time I suspect an event will hit Test! :D
  10. Kasa Active Member

    ROFL :D
  11. Finora Well-Known Member

    AH! I only had a small amount of time so hopped on to check the new recipes. I didn't even think to go look at my other plants in my storage house and haven't even been on live since the update =).

    I'm glad someone else spotted that.
  12. Irish Active Member

    The new shinys stopped spawning on nektulos beach.
  13. Kaitheel Developer

    Oh, I will get those all looking nice and uniform. Thank you!

    *Enjoy the rain while we get it!

  14. Kaitheel Developer

    They have at least one other possible spot in the zone where they could be hiding out, but I'll take a look.

  15. ZUES Well-Known Member

    You gonna put in that NoTD marketplace outfit we had last year? I get asked all the time where I got it.
  16. Kaitheel Developer

    I can't make any promises, as I am not the lucky one who gets to make such decisions, but I'll remind 'em that there are holiday specific items that should return to the Marketplace for the event.

    This one is the one I was talking about. I believe it came in green as well. I think it's one of the best costumes ever in EQ2. Want more just like it!

    THAT. IS. COOL! :D

  19. Avahlynn Well-Known Member

    Agreed! After many shades of the same ish armors, I love the new looks. And this one is just plain awesome creepy cool. Please beg for it to come back, Kaitheel!!
  20. Ocarinah Well-Known Member

    Wow I must have missed that item or just spent all my dbc on house items. Very cool. Can I just say I am very very excited about all the really awesome items coming for NotD?!!!? Thank you Kaitheel and thank you to everyone testing!!!!!
