EQ Update #7

Plenty happened in the month of April for Everquest.

An AMA was held back on on the 9th. Here are some of the things talked about from a quote on the official game forums.

"SK/Necro DoT revamps incoming (SK next patch, necro thereafter).

Overseer road map (Lower currency costs INC, limited rewards)

Experience model (ToV XP model likely to be continued).

No changes to raid reward system (currency vs chase).

Little to no chance of Free Trade/PvP TLP No new engine.

No new class/race combos.

Heroic Chracters to get a boost but no timetable.

ToV T2 gets same ZEM XP.

(Named gets 3-4 multiplier).

Past expansion collector/premium editions items to go in marketplace.

No expansion pre-release content (one-off events is not ideal).

No new tutorial system (due to resource cost).

Server merges incoming

No Ultron Ultimate Unattuner in marketplace.

No increase to loyalty point cap but new items to add will get looked at.

No new player-made items for marketplace but naming rights possible.

No tunic graphics for casters.

Team tries their best to systematically address bugs and code issues."

The full AMA chat can be found here.

Some of these items have already had work done on them such as the upcoming server merges slated to begin on May 19th. Those server merges will take a full 24 hours. The time when this will happen hasn't been posted yet but check back in the thread linked for more information.

Also recently Darkpaw Games announced that two new TLP servers will be launching on May 27th. The two new server names are Aradune and Rizlona.

We have been hard at work adding information for the new Overseer system. We almost have all of the agents information added and are slowly making quest entries. At some point I'll be adding Overseer search features for both NPCs and Quests. 

Click on Read More to see updates from April 5th through the 30th.

EQ Update #6

How are you and your loved ones doing during this pandemic? Me and my family are fine and staying at home. I am fortunate to have a development job where I can work from home and the business is doing fine.

We support all those fighting to keep people alive and well all across the world. They need our help right now. If you have any PPE used for medical purposes such as N-95 masks, isolation gowns, medical eye protection shields, ear loop masks with shields or Nitrile exam gloves of any size, donate these items to your local hospitals if they are in need of them. Respirators are in very high demand right now as well.

Site News

Listed updates from March 14th through yesterday.

Some fixes for the site were rolled out. One of them regarding the recipe search where clicking on pages was showing the same results.

The Overseer wiki needs some major help for those who are familiar with it. I haven't hardly logged in the past couple weeks but plan on playing some to work on it. If you would like to submit some information on it you can click on the Discuss link at the top of the page here or you can directly edit the wiki if you would like directly submit your info.

EQ Update #5

Spells have been updated. The spell history has been limited to a few months since the virtual machine that the spell parser sits on has limited resources right now due to being on a new cluster. We'll get that upgraded soon.

Account pruning is coming up soon. We'll be looking at removing the username and any personal information from accounts over 7 years old and keeping everything else such as posts on the forums, wiki entries, pictures uploaded, etc... Logging in will reset the inactive time on the account and save it from pruning.

Also we'll be making an Overseer wiki page soon to go over this new feature of EQ.

EQ's 21st anniversary will be starting on the 16th and will run until May 10th. We have a couple anniversary quests created so far. Fancy Feast and I guess this is Growing Up. Let us know if you find anything new regarding the anniversary.

EQ Update #2 and Jan 15, 2020 Patch

We've been pretty busy getting info done for ToV.

We also ran into some snags transferring the site over to a new cluster now running https.

We think we got most of the snags ironed out. There are some script updates that need to be made to get some things working correctly again and we'll get all of that updated soon.

Also big news for site owners running sites on https, our item tooltip now works on https enabled sites. But you'll need to update the script running in your pages and change your item links to start with https instead of http. Use the following code in your pages
