June 20, 2017 - Still Plugging Along

I am still working on the furniture gallery additions and updates as time and energy allow. It is slow going due to the Real Life thing, but it is still going, at least! Today I have added a Maritime furniture page to the site, and as soon as I finish this post, I'll be tackling some additions to the Stables page as well.

According to Kaitheel, the first full week of July should see Tinkerfest going onto Test. This is, of course, subject to change if something comes up, but it gives us something to shoot for on the testing and preview front.

June 13, 2017 - Fallen Gate Reward Reminder

For those who helped test the Fallen Gate beta this past week, if you completed your 150 quests or level 30 before the achievement was added last night, make sure to log in as soon as possible to trigger the achievement for your character. This will be needed if you want to claim your beta reward once the Fallen Gate server is released at the end of the month. (EDIT: The current plan is for the beta to go to the end of this Thursday, the 15th, so there is still time to earn a testing reward, and to help chase down niggly bugs with itemization, leveling, etc.)

May 31, 2017 - Mass Production Tweak

The patch notes today included the following:

Mass production crafts will now maintain their quantity when repeating the craft. This option can be disabled in Options [Advanced] > User Interface > Tradeskills > Repeat Craft Maintains Quantity.

May 25, 2017 - Update and Bonus Weekend

My "oomph" comes and goes these days, but I am trying to slowly chip away at revamps and updates to the furniture pages. Before I go through page by page over the next few months, I have added a totally new page for Windows and Mirrors. It is not yet added to the left menubar when you hit the furniture section, but will be linked in soon. (It is a fussy pain to do, and I need more caffeine first!) Meanwhile, enjoy the new page and nudge me if I am missing anything in the crafted window and mirror front, please! (EDIT: The furniture menubar has been changed, one mirrored item has been added to the page, and the link has been updated.)

In other news, starting at midnight tonight (Pacific) and running through the end of Monday (Pacific), there will be a bonus weekend running. This not only includes bonus xp (adventure, tradeskill and AA), but tithe and guild status as well. Wheeee!

May 19, 2017 - Silver Lining

During the unexpected login issues that happened this afternoon, I finally finished a project I have been chipping away at in the background for a while. The Building Blocks page now includes ALL* crafted building block sets. The Dividers and Tiles pages now should be only those orphans that are not part of full block sets. Hopefully this will help decorators who are looking for sets find what they need a bit more easily.

*The downside to not being logged into the game while doing my final page tweaking was that I may have missed something. Please let me know when (not if) you find any errors! :)

May 09, 2017 - That Familiar Feeling

Since someone asked me about it, here is the stat information on the familiar that I uncrated in the wee hours on Test as well as a pic of the familiar tab. (The leafhopper on the bottom right of the familiar lineup is the only one I have collected so far over there, and now it is time to swap over to my main server and try for one there!)

May 08, 2017 - GU103

Game Update 103 is released in the morning. You can read full patch notes here. There is no crafting component to this game update, other than a cosmetic change:

Maldura crafting stations now play animations and particle effects when used.

However, since things are quiet, and I know folks will have questions about the new familiar feature, I pestered Kasa from Test for some details. (Well, first I tried for several days to get one to drop, so I could test them myself, but when Bristlebane messed with my luck, I resorted to begging for information. :D)

  • They can drop in any KA mission reward chest or PQ (Public Quest) reward chest. (While others had only been getting them from the mission reward crates, I actually got my first drop from the boss crate at the end of a KA solo zone.).
  • They can also drop in the new Proving Grounds. (See the patch notes linked above for Proving Grounds information.
  • The item that you get is a "Familiar Cage". The crate is tradeable. Once you unpack it into a random common, uncommon, rare or ultra-rare familiar, it can no longer be traded, but it can be sold for guild status (handy if you get a duplicate).
  • Familiars come with a handy new Familiars tab on your character sheet. IF YOU USE A CUSTOM UI FOR YOUR CHARACTER SHEET, YOU WILL NEED TO UPDATE THAT COMPONENT OF YOUR UI OR DISABLE IT.

May 02, 2017 - More Cut-Out Love

April 28, 2017 - About That Downtime ...

... they think they have the issue fixed, but are monitoring it. If you have login issues, please post in this Daybreak thread.

April 27, 2017 - Extended Unscheduled Downtime

EQ2 servers have been unavailable for several hours due to technical issues. The current ETA for them coming back up is now midnight Pacific. (Yes, you read that right.) The AMA Dev chats will be rescheduled to Monday. Extra bonus xp time and bonus scroll time is likely to also be scheduled to make up for this, according to what folks have reported from Discord.

April 13, 2017 - Feeling Beastly?

This was originally just going to be a quick post to remind folks that the Bristlebane Day festivities end in a few hours. (So go finish up your earning and spending while you can!) However, when I checked on Discord before logging into the game, I found folks a bit ... eggcited.

An eggstra new holiday surprise was added overnight. We are hoping that it will run though at least the end of the weekend, but we have not been told any further details.

What is this surprise, you ask? Fluff pets, an achievement, and the title "the Eggcellent Adventurer". Check out the details here

UPDATE! The event will run through the end of April 19.

April 01, 2017 - City Fest Love

The Qeynos City Festival this month adds 8 new tiles to their lineup. Folks were wishing that these were added to other sets, after we saw the Erollisi Day block set get some love, and it looks like we may be seeing similar for all the city festival sets over time! Wheee!

March 31, 2017 - High Silly Day

Tomorrow is April 1, the highest of all High Silly Days for Bristlebane. Remember that there will be one-day-only quests and events on this day. and plan your time accordingly!

If you are going for the Fur Finder and related achievements it is good to note that Obulus bunnies also count for the achievements on this one day. Since there has been a lot of confusion when these achievements are mentioned in chat channels, this is just for grabbing the bunnies. (The killer rabbits were a totally separate thing for the Monty Python anniversary, not for Bristlebane Day.)

Last, but not least: If you have your upgraded pack sent out for holiday harvests, remember to collect from the pony when you are near your harvest depot, as the April 1 holiday harvests include harvestables from every single holiday event!

Again, all of this is for April 1 only (based on a Pacific timezone clock.

March 17, 2017 - Tiredededed

Well, today is the last day of the Brewday celebrations on all servers. And it is the second day of the week of the Chronoportals event. But, I have not touched either of them today. Instead I spent through my Bristlebane Day tokens on Test and did a bunch of scrambling around to get a Bristlebane Day Preview up for you a few short hours after it hit Test. Enjoy! I will finish the story in a day or three, once the frain bry has settled down.

March 16, 2017 - Reminders

The Chronoportals event is now live. The linked event page now contains prices for the 5 new items.

Also, there are less than 48 hours left for Brewday, so get your earning and spending in now!

March 09, 2017 - Gardening Update - Eyeballs Wanted!

For a very, very long time, I have wanted to update all the furniture pages so that the event crafted items and the quest crafted/harvested items are on their proper furniture page. It is a massive task, finding them all, grabbing image links. dropping them into the proper spot, adding quest links and such as needed, etc. As a test, I tackled one of the supposedly "easier" pages to update over 3 hours ago and have been juggling html and php codes ever since. I would dearly love extra eyeballs on the Plants and Garden page for errors and ommissions, as well as constructive feedback. (For before/after comparisons, the top section of "Carpenter Recipes" is the original page.)

UPDATE: I received a pic in my mailbox, and I was going to wait until tomorrow to post it, but here is a preview of the 5 new lovely buyables that will be available with Chronoportals 2017 Yes, you can squee now.

March 06, 2017 - Whoops!

We did not catch this during testing, since Thundering Steppes on Test is not very high traffic. "Pressed into the Brewcrew" is currently available daily during this Brewday event. Per Kaitheel, next year it will become an annual quest, but we are allowed to enjoy the extra tokens and/or serving horns that you can earn over the next eleven days.
