June 25, 2019 - Scorched Sky!

Scorched Sky goes live at the start of July 26 (Pacific time). As of the time of this posting, that is less than 10 hours away. This year adds a new quest, another full building block set, an appearance armor set, and a few other house items. The items from last year will return on the vendors as well. The full preview has been up for several days now. A rather rushed video of the new items has also just been loaded onto YouTube. I apologize for the rushed jumble, but I wanted to get something done once the art seemed to be finalized.

June 21, 2019 - Free Familiars

As per the Producer's Letter, there are three free bunny familiars in celebration of Pride. They are available via the in-game Marketplace until July 31.

June 18, 2019 - Shop Quickly!

This was in the patch notes today:

Mage Fulcrum Gearshift, the Concordium Collector, and Scientist Dally Scrumplecog, the Academy of Arcane Science Collector, are back in their respective cities, for a limited time, to exchange Elemental Storm Shreds for items in their stores.

This means that those of you who were caught unprepared by the ending of the long-running Against the Elements prelude event have one final chance to do some shopping. I have no information at this time on how long they will be around, so hurry if you need to shop, and please do spread the word.

June 17, 2019 - Producer's Letter

The Summer 2019 Producer's Letter is now out, with lots of little tidbits of information -- such as free Pride familiars that will be available for just over a month, and a 10-level increase coming with the expansion -- and I recommend that you go read it when you get a chance.

Also, a quick reminder that Oceansfull ends tomorrow night, so get your last-minute shell diving done soon!

June 13, 2019 - Scorched Sky on Test

While most folks are still enjoying the last few days of Oceansfull (ends the night of the 18th), we are already on to the next event on the Test server. Check out the second-annual Scorched Sky event, due to hit the live servers on June 26!

June 13, 2019 - Throwback Thursday

A conversation on the Homeshow channel reminded me of this today, so since Throwback Thursday is a "thing" on parts of the internet, I give you the rather dusty old pics of the Straightjacket of Tradeskilling (taken long before the sites turned much of my hair grey, and the methotrexate caused me to lose a lot of it).

June 05, 2019 - Oceansfull!

This is just a reminder that the 2nd annual Oceansfull Festival begins in a few short hours and runs through the end of the 18th (Pacific time). If you want a closer look at some of the house items pictured in the above preview article, Ocarinah has put together a full preview video of the items. For those who want their eye-candy without all the explanations, she also made a shorter, soundless version. Thanks much!

May 27, 2019 - Quick Water Preview

I am stalling on the long, detailed video of all the new Oceansfull goodies, but I did manage to throw together a quick preview video of the bubble and water effects (Aqueous Temptation and the Moving Water Spray block set.) Enjoy!

May 24, 2019 - Oceansfull and a Quick Note

As promised, I have put together the Oceansfull Preivew. There will be more (video, updated quest tracker) added to it later. Enjoy!

In other news, I found this tidbit on Discord today, and want to get it recorded here as I have already heard folks doing creative paraphrasing, and I want to be sure the original wording is not lost. This is in regards to converting mounts into house items, since there was a question on the new mount that came out in a new bundle today.

Mounts for the most part won't convert going forward. We'll be adding a place to get new mount appearances for homes and guildhalls in the future.

May 24, 2019 - Oceansfull on Test

Oceansfull is now on the Test server, with some utterly lovely new additions this year. However, my internet was down most of the day today, so please do not expect a preview writeup until sometime Friday. (Reminder, this is a holiday weekend, and there will be bonus xp on live (non-TLE) servers and bonus status on all servers this weekend, along with a Marketplace sale.

April 05, 2019 - What? You Thought I Was Hibernating?

Lest you think that I have only been hibernating in an exhausted heap as "event season" finally winds down, here is a look at the final event of spring, the Beast'r Eggstravaganza that will hit the live servers in late April. (All right, I have been mostly hibernating, but event season was not quite done with me.)

March 28, 2019 - Bristlebane Day is Here!

Yep, it is time once again for celebrating mischief, merriment and the Grand Prankster himself, Fizzlethorpe Bristlebane. (Beastlords, remember that you can only tame the exotic were-rabbit and were-bear during this time, as well as stalking the berry bovoch warder). More details on the crafting/questing/housing front can be found here.

March 25, 2019 - Against the Elements Ending!

The notice is VERY short, but if there were any last things you wanted to buy from the Against the Elements prelude event, now, immediately, is the time to get it. (Furniture, the recipe book...) The Ancient scroll will be moved to Pas Yu (the Days of Summer merchant in SF), but the prelude furniture is going to be unavailable for purchase after the patch Tuesday (tomorrow) morning, so grab it now!

March 20, 2019 - Brewday

Yes, Brewday is still running. It was a happy accident, and will be turned off at 11:59 Pacific tonight. Enjoy the extra time while you have it!

March 18, 2019 - Two More Things!

First, the consolidated list of workarounds and things to avoid until the patch on Tuesday, if you are working on Mischief Managed.

  • If the final of the 10 traps will not let you place anything on it, you can work around the issue by grouping with someone else who is placing traps, so you can get credit for that last one.
  • Get all four "Forming the ___ Guild" quests together! Hand them in together as well! Failing to do so may bug Jurie until the patch on Tuesday.
  • Convince Hibbie to join you BEFORE you convince Jurie.
  • When you go to convince Eifae, introduce yourself, then close out that conversation. Hail her again, then do the proper path, and the quest will update. If she agrees to go with you, but the quest did not update, introduce yourself then try again.

Contrary to the comments from the forum trolls, who are trying to make this sound like some great Daybreak conspiracy, bugs happen, especially when code is touched after the testers are done with their part (or when players do things in a different way than the testers did, such as not grabbing the 4 convince quests in one fell swoop!) Unintended consequences happen, and Gninja has been putting in many long extra hours this weekend helping folks through it until the patch happens on Tuesday. Please, show some compassion and patience if you can.

Now, on to stuff I am trying not to whimper about. I know the devs have way too many balls in the air, so the ball was dropped on highlighting this information. I did not even find out about this achievement until today, so while I would like to apologize for the short notice, it is what it is at this point. :)

There is a house deed that you can earn from completing the Fabled Chronoportals (and PQ) instance, if you can get a group together for the fableds that can meet the resolve requirement. The achievement went in yesterday. Anything you did before the patch yesterday will NOT have counted, due to how achievements are worded, and the fact that it slid in under the wire means we were unable to warn folks about it before this weekend was over. So, if you want a Kerafyrm house that has TWO unique looks (Sleeper and Awakened), this is how you get it, and you will need to finish before the 31st, or wait another year for it.

March 16, 2019 - Bug Warning

Since we were unable to test the "convince" stage of the new crafting line (they did not want it spoiled for live), a few issues have cropped up. Please pass the word that these will be fixed on Tuesday.

Convince Hibbie BEFORE Jurie, or you will be stuck on Hibbie until Tuesday

Additionally, if one of the researchers agrees to join the Anchorage, but then doesn't head off, remember what conversational path you too and redo it again. This will also be fixed Tuesday

March 16, 2019 - GU109!

Barring any last-minute issues, the servers should be coming up soon with Game Update 109 for the live servers, as well as the two new servers. It is bound to be a bit of a crazed day, since it is the 20th Anniversary of EverQuest and so much is going on across all the Daybreak games because of it. Prep yourself for launch by checking out the GU109 Patch Notes. In addition to the new tradeskill quests and the public tradeskill apprentices, there are a couple other little things called out in the patch notes for crafters such as: mount gear patterns stacking to 10 and fitting in harvest depots, more house items stacking in inventory, and a couple furniture merchants with expanded inventory.

The GU109 Crafting stuff turned into four articles and three YouTube videos, so if I missed something, I heartily apologize and will fix it as soon as possible.

To save you some digging for the links:

March 16, 2019 - Bristlebane Day on Test

Yep, another event is rumbling around on Test right now! I'll flesh out the article next week, after I recover from the GU tomorrow and so on, but here is at least the eye-candy for you! Bristlebane Day 2019

March 15, 2019 - Prepping for Tomorrow

Tomorrow marks the 20th anniversary of EverQuest, and EQ2 has several things in store for the big day. First, of course, is the release of GU109 and the addition of serverwide research assistants (plus a lot of other stuff on the adventuring front). Expect the servers to be back up around 10 a.m. Pacific tomorrow.

In the meantime, members will enjoy double experience and status from now until the end of March 21. (It looks like only double guild status, not double personal status, FYI.)

Two more videos are up on my youtube channel for the GU109 content now:

I am tired. I am less coherent than usual, and grumpy to boot, so expect less coherence than usual for a bit. I WILL be on Test later today to test out the Bristlebane Day content that just hit there for testing, but may/may not have a preview done before the end of the day due to my brain leaking out my ears from too many events overlapping.

March 13, 2019 - Hurry Up and Wait

While I had hoped to have more screenshots, and an item preview video, done by now, I had been waiting on the final beta patch to retest stuff before the Saturday release, and, well, the patch was delayed, then the beta server sort of went kablooey. Hopefully, I will be able to dive back into retesting and then tackle more pics tomorrow. {fingers crossed}

Meanwhile, I have one bit of happy news for Saturday. Those many, many mount patterns that some of us have will stack to 10 in inventory and also fit in harvest depots after the big GU patch on Saturday. Wheee!
