July 23, 2018 - Gremlins in the Moonlight ... or Something!

The monthly Moonlight Enchantments event fell victim to a horde of gremlins on the Fallen Gate server, and chased away several quest NPCs as well as causing one portal to not even open up. The gremlins then messed up a weekend fix attempt. Everything should be fixed for Fallen Gate now, and for Fallen Gate (only), the event will run through the end of July 25.

UPDATE: Back to the drawing board! Fallen Gate is still infested with gremlins, and the issues with this event on that server continue. Kaitheel suspects that the fixes will not stick until server downtime in the morning. In case I get distracted and do not catch any further updates, the official forum thread is here, with developer updates starting with the 13th post in the thread.

June 20, 2018 - Decorating Protip

Now that more house items stack, here is a handy tip for decorators: If you are placing a stack of tiles in a storage house or dungeon, drag the stack to the hotbar and place them from there. You will save yourself many keyclicks!

June 12, 2018 - Lag Issues?

If you are having issues with massive lag and rendering issues after the patch, it is likely that you are still using the streaming client. (There is currently a streaming issue being worked on, that should be fine soon.) If you want to avoid this in the future, you can select the "Full download" option from the launchpad. The first time you do this, however, you will have to wait while it downloads the files that it had been trying to stream.

UPDATE: Lag issues due to streaming were fixed several hours ago. In other news, some red shinies have been turned on for Fallen Gate and the Red Glowies page now lists which collections have been turned on for FG. Additionally, the solstice earring got an upgrade today and the Earring of the Solstice walkthrough has been updated with the new stat information.

May 27, 2018 - PoP Red Shinies

A couple of days ago I promised more information on the red shinies that now appear in PoP daily tradeskill mission instances. While we do not have information on the Shard of Hate mission yet (it is awaiting a hotfix), I do have screenshots and basic information here

May 24, 2018 - GU106 and Free Level 100 Character

Game Update 106 is here! In amidst all the adventuring goodies, there are a few crafting fixes (Bastion of Thunder), and a LOT more furniture items that will stack. Once the dust settles, I will be asking for the names of strays, so we can get those fixed as well. (Player-written items, and customizable items such as housepets will not stack, but pretty much everything else "should" stack.) You can find detailed patch notes here.

In addition, from now until June 7, all existing accounts will be able to create a single level 100 heroic character for free. (Not buff an existing one, create a new one.) This character will have a lot of extra goodies to go with them, and time is limited for claiming, so please spread the word as able. You can find the announcement about it here.

UPDATE: Please be aware of the following from the MOTD (message of the day) in-game:

The zone for the Shard of Hate inside the Plane of Magic will only show in the first instance of Plane of Magic until the next update. If you consume your Mercenary: Personal Avatar token while next to the mercenary in the world, you will need to move away then back for to hire it.

UPDATE 2: It appears that there are 5 red shiny collections from in PoP tradeskill missions. I was not able to get TS missions in the beta when I tried, so it is not something I saw before today. More eventually about this and about the rewards as it will take time for us to figure it all out. Meanwhile, be aware that the Shard of Hate TS mission instance will not be spawning red shinies until the next hotfix

UPDATE 3 (yes, another one!): Manually canceling creation of an item mid-craft (such as folks often do for transmuting and adorning dailies) right now will dump you to character select. You will want to avoid doing that until the issue is fixed.

May 01, 2018 - Patch and More on City Fest Goodies

The patch today included several things of interest to crafters and decorators. (The potions and mushrooms are from the Moonlight Enchantments vendors.):

  • Fixed the build components for Shield of Blackwood IV (Grandmaster) and Construct's Sacrifice V (Grandmaster)
  • treespirit potion is now dryad potion.
  • tainted treespirit potion is now corrupted dryad potion
  • Orange Spotted Mushroom - House item can be scaled down even smaller now.
  • Purple Mushroom Cluster - House item can be scaled down even smaller now.
  • Orange Mushroom Cluster - House item can be scaled down even smaller now.
  • Turquoise Mushroom Cluster - House item can be scaled down even smaller now.

In addition, Daybreak gave us a quick look at all the new city festival items (not just the Freeport ones) and that group shot of all the firepits, banners and armor sets is now at the bottom of the 2018 New City Festival Offerings page.

April 25, 2018 - New City Fest Goodies

Starting with the Freeport City Festival (May 1-17, 2018), we will be seeing two new house items and one new armor crate per city. While we do not yet have details on the other cities, the new Freeport offerings are being tested now.

Update: Meanwhile, tonight, the EQII team made me cry -- in a good way.

April 19, 2018 - Moonlight Mania!

As was mentioned last week, tonight sees the release of 52 new items for the monthly 2-day Moonlight Enchantments event on all servers. After taking a look at the old Moonlight Enchantments pages for each zone, however, I realized that the pictures on the pages were taken over several years by several people, and it made the pages look very ... sloppy. Counting the new items, I am currently juggling over 200 fresh screenshots on my hard drive and am redoing the individual grotto pages for consistency. I am also using 300x300 images now, instead of 200x200, so that they show a bit more detail. The page for the Enchanted Dryad Grotto in Antonica has now been revamped, and I am working on the others now.

April 11, 2018 - New Grotto Goodness!!

March 29, 2018 - Bristlebane Day Has Arrived!

Bristlebane Day 2018 has arrived, and pranks and mischief abound! (And, of course, Beast'r is still running as well, just to keep everyone extra busy!) Enjoy the merriment, and be sure to set aside some time on April 1 or 2, if possible, for the special High Silly Day happenings!

March 27, 2018 - Crash Issues

There were crash issues after the patch today and the DBG folks have been hard at work chasing it down. Maj'Dul has been brought up to see if the issue has resolved, and once it is deemed stable, they will unlock the other servers. Meanwhile, I know there have been reports that Beast'r did not start as scheduled. I will add an update once I know more.

UPDATE: The servers are back up and the event is live. Happy egg hunting!

March 21, 2018 - Bristlebane Day and More

First, Bristlebane Day is on Test. Yes, I have the eye-candy for you already. The article needs fleshing out, and I will try to pull the story out of my brain before the event goes live as well.

The issue with player-written notebooks (which also affects signs) will be patched on Tuesday the 27th. Until then, you risk overwriting the contents of your player-written book if you pick it up, pack it, unpack it, sell it or buy it when there is another notebook (either blank or a different title) in the target container that uses the same cover. So tread VERY carefully if you have to use player-written books before next Tuesday. When in doubt, leave them exactly where they are at this moment, and do not touch them again until Tuesday.

March 20, 2018 - Moonlight News

This just came across the EverQuest2 facebook page:

Moonlight Enchantments are happening now! Though the rings have appeared as usual this month, we've got a peculiar feeling that something new may be involved the next time around...

This likely refers to the new Moonlight Enchantment items that were hinted at a few months ago. When more details are available, I will post them.


Today introduced stacking AND a bug to playermade notebooks. The short version, to save my fingers, is that if you have two playermade notebooks of the same base type (rawhide, etc., etc), you risk overwriting one with the other. So, if you have one rawhide leather notebook with one batch of text, and one with another batch of text, picking one up while the other is in inventory will overwrite. The same goes for pushing one into the moving crate when there's another of that type, but not that title, already in there. A bug was just put in, well after hours today, so it is too soon to get a dev response and an ETA on the fix. PLEASE pass the word on this, so nobody tries to pack up and move their library before this is fixed, etc.
