    • Each Blood of Luclin solo or heroic weekly mission will grant Peculiar Medallion's, which may be spent at the Ethereal Merchant located within the Wracklands. Completing weekly missions in higher tier dungeons will grant an increased reward amount. So a weekly mission completed in a solo mission will grant the base reward, but completing weekly missions in a Heroic will grant the base reward plus a heroic bonus amount, Challenge or Expert dungeon will grant increasingly larger bonus rewards.”

    • Blood of Luclin heroic dungeons may now be set to the Expert difficulty! The first Expert dungeon entered each day will grant a Grace of Norrath buff, allowing less experienced and geared players the ability to ease themselves into the higher difficulty tiers of heroic dungeons. Completing daily and weekly heroic missions completely within Expert dungeons will grant bonus rewards.
    Wracklands: The Crimson Barrens [Raid]
    • The trio of tegi encounter should now use physical damage for surge spells cast as opposed to magical. This applies to both normal and challenge mode versions of the encounter.
    • The trio of tegi encounter have had their health significantly reduce in challenge mode.

    Kael Drakkel & Fabled Kael Drakkel
    • Destroying "a temple warden" now counts towards the golem slayer achievement, instead of the elemental slayer achievement.

    • Attempting to harvest bloodwine roots now has a proper error message, if the player is not on either quest.

    • Season Seven Familiars are now in the familiars character tab!
    • As part of the launch of the seventh Familiar season the underlying systems used by familiars have gone through a complete overhaul to reduce the amount of data stored on characters and the moving parts that the system uses. While the majority of this change should not be noticeable in play, there are a few interface updates that are a notable exception.
    • The familiar level and experience is now listed directly on the familiar item and can be seen on mouseover or examine.
    • Event and promo Familiars now clearly state that they cannot be consumed for familiar experience as part of their description.
    • Familiars no longer cancel themselves when leveling, and instead recast themselves automatically to force their stat buffs to update when they level.

    • Praetor's Longbow - Item name is now spelled correctly.
    • Shield of Conquered Souls - Item name is now spelled correctly.
    • Earring of Unkempt Power - Ethereal Recovery effect is now spelled correctly.

    • Aether-shard Warhammer - Item name corrected.

    • The Mokberry Bush - The bushes that appear near Citizen Vurken Zum'Dn, after the quest is completed, can no longer be interacted with, as intended.
    • Enriched Sprouts - The sprouts that appear near Citizen Vurken Zum'Dn, after the quest is completed, can no longer be interacted with, as intended.
    • The Bones of Insanity - Defeating Dartain too quickly no longer interferes with the quest update.
    • The Orc Runner Trinkets - The Taskmaster Phalange Chimes, The Urn of Darish, The Censer of the Oracles, and The Stein of D'Vinn now properly indicate they are associated with the quest, and are now all removed from the player's inventory when the quest is deleted or completed.
    • Orcs of the Ree - Journal typo fix.
    • Keeper of the Crypt - Journal error fixed.

    • Scorched Sky - Conflagrant Rites Overseer quests should no longer count towards your maximum allowed charged quests.

    List of Ethereals has been posted by Niami on EQ2 Traders, including screenshots of the red rune variations for each class.

    Additionally, Caith said in discord that the ethereal will be toggled on Monday and are not active yet.

    This is way too pricey for our server. Could you consider helping us for once?

    Well its Monday... just did my weeklies.. it is not toggled on yet
  4. Bludd Well-Known Member

    uh the devs live on pacific time and it is probably not set to start at the minute the new date rolls over anyway
    Uwkete-of-Crushbone likes this.
  5. Whilhelmina Well-Known Member

    yeah, probably nothing before at least noon
  6. Gelenor Active Member

    missed the discord comment, could not find it, so guess its a manual toggle, not like those events that start with the start of the day
  7. Whilhelmina Well-Known Member

    Toggle on Test is usually manual for "new events", the cross-server toggle is only when it launches on all servers at once.

    hi Ya - well reading all the posts on this ethereal stuff has me confused will or will not the ethereal coins be available in solos ????
  9. Whilhelmina Well-Known Member

    I think you can validate the special weekly quest that gets in your journal by itself through solos and that's it.
