August 22, 2016 - GU101!

At the time of this posting, Game Update 101 releases in a few hours. (7 a.m. Pacific on Tuesday.) The full patch notes can be found here.

I would like to go into a bit of detail about this one line:

You can now remove your own access from another character’s house.
Basically, this is for people who have gone to their guild housing portal in the past and been hit with what seems to be a mile-long access list for various friends, acquaintances and what have you that have added you to visitor, friend or trustee access in their home. Some of them may not even play anymore, which means you cannot just ask them to remove you when your need for access is done. Below are the various methods in which you will be able to remove your access from their home. (I personally recommend, if the list is a long one, to take notes on names and locations in advance.)
  1. Head to the home from the guild housing portal and remove your access from the housing panel inside their home. This can be a pain if you have to pay their rent first, but is a good alternative if you are a low-level squishie and the home is the city of the opposing faction. However, it also means a lot of running in circles, so if you are NOT squishy, you will want that list I just recommended.
  2. Head to the outside door to the home - this is really recommended, if, for example, several homes that you want to remove your access to are prestige homes in Qeynos or Freeport. For this example, let us say there are 10 folks in Qeynos prestige housing that gave me access to their homes, and one at 4 Bayle Court in South Qeynos. Scamper up to the door of 4 Bayle, right-click the door and select visit. Find the correct name on the list, click access, find the "Remove access" button on the window that pops up. Boom, done. Scamper to the Qeynos prestige housing portal. Select visit for the housing type for the first home on my list, find the right name, click to visit, remove access. Boom. Rinse and repeat.
You will still need to do several steps per home, but it will save a ton of time and a ton of zoning, if you have several homes to remove in the same city.

August 06, 2016 - LON Reminder

Just a reminder that Legends of Norrath will close down for good on the 17th of this month. Please make sure to claim and open any packs that you may have waiting for you via the standalone client before noon Pacific on that day. (You can use the link above, and use the Play Now! button on the home page to download the standalone client if you need it.)

August 04, 2016 - GU101 Waiting in the Wings

Game Update 101 is due to arrive on August 23, with new fabled dungeons, new level 10 to 100 agnostic dungeons and more. If you want to test this new content it is available on the Test and Beta servers.

On the non-adventuring side, decorators and the like may like this tiny bit gleaned from the Test/Beta patch notes:

You can now remove your own access from another character’s house.
That should help you trim down your access lists at guild housing portals, so you can remove your access from the homes of inactive players. (Note that this is part of GU101, so will not be on the live servers until August 23.)

For those confused about the difference between Test and Beta here is a bit of an explanation. Test is a permanent population, where folks level up the normal way while playing guinea pig for new content. They usually get to see the new content first, but they also have to deal with bug reports, stuff that is oddly broken, and so on, on a regular basis. The Beta server is opened up to the public when something big needs extra testing, and often allows you to copy your chosen characters over so you can test with skills familiar to you. It will often allow level buffing as well. Characters on Beta can be wiped (deleted) whenever Daybreak deems necessary. What happens on Beta to your copied character has no bearing on the character it was copied from - you do not get to "keep" any extra levels you earn and so on.

July 20, 2016 - Tinkerfest 2016!

In a few short hours, the annual Tinkerfest event will begin. Those who have been asking for more of the Agnor and Gnormajean tale will find that the preview now contains a bit of a short story regarding to the two of them. It may not be as polished as I'd like, but I am just happy that my arthritic hands allowed me to type even this much! Without further ado: Tinkerfest 2016: Windows to Her Heart

UPDATE: I almost forgot to link in the Tinkerfest Quest Tracker spreadsheet that Casdoe provided us with. It has now been linked into the quest section of the Tinkerfest preview. Thanks again, Casdoe!

July 14, 2016 - Tinkerfest Stuff

Tinkerfest is coming next week, the goodies are on Test right now being tested. I am ... having some pain issues. The story may or may not arrive before the event goes live, the rest of the preview is unpolished still, but, for those wanting the eye-candy, the pics are up at least. Tinkerfest 2016

June 12, 2016 - EQ2 Crafting Survey Request

We've had a request to boost the signal on this. This is NOT a survey for Daybreak, or for this site, it is for Domino's personal use in a presentation.

As the survey says, "These statistics may be used in a presentation about crafting in MMOs. This survey is for personal use and not related to Daybreak Games in any way, answers will not have any influence on game direction."
Those wishing to take the survey can do so at this link.

June 10, 2016 - More Grotto Goodness!

We just found out today that the monthly Moonlight Enchantments (aka Grottos) event will have a couple dozen new offerings this month. Fresh from the Test server, I have the details and the eye-candy for you in New Grotto Goodies - 2016. (Edit: Large Vesspyr Grass added to the page, bringing the total number of new items to 25.)

May 24, 2016 - Shrinking Mercs

Are you vertically challenged? Does your merc make a better door than window, making it difficult to keep an eye out for trouble? Our pleas have been heard, and as of today, there is a shrink merc ability:

Shrink Mercenary is now available for purchase from class trainers.

March 24, 2016 - Event Reminders

Today is the last day to earn ancient coins in the Chronoportals. You will still be able to shop with those coins through March 31.

Bristlebane Day begins tonight at midnight Pacific. On top of notes about new house items (crafted, bought, quested), beastlords will want to check out my notes on two new exotic warders that they can tame only in the new quest instance. (If they hand in the quest before they tame either, they are out of luck until next year.)

March 21, 2016 - Bristlebane Note

I will have a Bristlebane Day story up before the event goes live, really! In the meantime, the eye-candy has been up for a few days. We just received notice that the Lucky Horse Shoe house item (crafted), will still have a bugged placement when this event goes live on the 25th. The art file is currently scheduled to go live in the March 29th patch. So, if you absolutely need to place that horseshoe in the first 4 days of the event, be aware that you will have to fidget with it a bit. :D

March 17, 2016 - Bristlebane Day In Testing

Yes, it is the last day of Brewday AND it is the first day of Chronoportals AND we have Bristlebane Day now being tested. Ouffff!

February 19, 2016 - This and That

I know many folks these days use ad blocker software when browsing (with good reason). I would like to ask those of you who both do that and use this site consider whitelisting eq2.eqtraders.com. The tiny little bit from the ads (no popups here!) are our main source of revenue, and every little bit counts these days. Thanks!

Brewday is already on the Test server (welcome to the season of back-to-back events!). While I do not have the story done, or the preview fleshed out yet, I have done up eye-candy for you. Enjoy! Brewday 2016: Dancing, Drinking Fools

February 17, 2016 - Downtime Extended

Something went askew with the patch that went in today, and U.S. servers are expected be down until around noon. Today is also the last day of Erollisi Day, so remember to snag those love notes, hard candies, and merchant goodies while you can, once the servers are back up!

February 09, 2016 - Patch Tidbits

From the patch today:

Erollisi Day
Ykeshan frogloks near Guk in Moors of Ykesha now drop their love notes at the same rate as other mobs.
An Oval Heart-Stained Window Pane has been added to the "Romantic Gifts to Craft IX" recipe book.

February 06, 2016 - Erollisi Day Window

Do you see that lovely oval window at the bottom right in the picture above? It was supposed to go on the EDay merchant, Douglas, but there was a slight snafu. (The wrong thing was added, then removed, but then the right thing was not added. No worries if that is confusing, just focus on the lovely oval.) To make sure we have sufficient access to this lovely oval, it is going to be patched into the Romantic Gifts to Craft IX recipe book instead. If all goes well, that will be in the patch on this coming Tuesday, otherwise it will go in "soon". When added, it will automagically appear in that book, including for those who already purchased/scribed it.
