September 21, 2021 - Pandamonium!

While we are still awaiting details on the Gear Up, Level Up (GULU) event, the Panda, Panda, Panda! event has kicked off. (Formerly known as the Days of Summer).

Can you imagine living in a land where there are no true seasons? Where the weather stays bland and unchanging throughout the year? The hua'mein of Ultera can not only imagine it, but it is all that they know. Small wonder, then, that Mei Lan is curious about Norrathian seasonal events. Can you help provide her with a few examples? Week 1 locations taken from Discord have been added to the Panda, Panda, Panda! article, and eye candy will follow after I am done work today.

September 13, 2021 - Prelude Event Incoming!

The "Beyond the Shattered Sea" prelude event will begin on Tuesday, September 14, and should be active until the next expansion hits (date is still TBA). The Prelude Event Article has been updated with details regarding the adventuring quests, the crafting quests, the collection quest rewards, and the prices on the new buyable items. This should make it easier for you to hit the ground running when the event begins.

September 03, 2021 - Marketplace Sale and Summer Ethereal Update

There will be a 20% off sale this weekend for many Marketplace items:

Labor Day Weekend is looming, and we have decided to celebrate you and all the hard work you've done in game this year. Starting Friday, September 3, 2021 at 12:00 p.m. PDT and ending on Tuesday, September 7, 2021 at 12:00 p.m. PDT, all players will be able to take advantage of a 20%-off discount on many Marketplace store items.

With regard to the ethereal event, for those of us (like me) who are feeling a bit behind on earning ethereal coins, Kander posted the following in Discord this afternoon:

For those who have been asking about double Ethereals. There are no plans for double ethereal coins. We plan to keep the ethereal event running indefinitely, as there will be rewards that people will want and or need even during and after the expansion this year and next. You will be able to earn the current Ethereal Event coins in expansion 18 content as well. So you will not have to go back to Reign of Shadows content to earn them.

August 31, 2021 - Prelude Event on Test

The Prelude 2021 event: Beyond the Shattered Sea, is now on the Test server. The eye-candy is up, the rest of the details will be up in the next couple of days as I squeeze research and documentation in during the evenings after work. This event will go live on September 14.

August 10, 2021 - GU118: Toil and Trouble

Game Update (GU) 118 goes live Tuesday morning at around 9 a.m. Pacific. You can read the official patch notes here. I have also put together a listing of the notes that will be of most interest to crafters and decorators, and will be updating the list with details and pictures once everything is on the live servers and is figured out.

July 27, 2021 - Missing, But Not Really Missing

The patch today introduced an issue with some art assets. A lot of decorators are reporting "missing" house items (Velious crafting station, portals, waterfalls, and more). Please be aware that the items themselves are still there, you have not lost them due to the patch today. They are, however, not displaying. The coders are aware of the issue and are actively investigating. Please spread the word and do not panic if decorated homes, halls, etc. are looking a bit off after the patch today.

July 06, 2021 - Oops, I Missed One!

I missed the following new quest reward option in my Tinkerfest preview. In separate, but related news, I will also try to work on a full video of all the new Tinkerfest items later this week since Ocarinah has been hit with a massive attack of Real Life.

June 09, 2021 - Introducing Your New Community Manager

Accendo made his first public post today:

Greetings, everyone! I’m Accendo, and I’m honored to be your new Community Manager for EverQuest II (and EverQuest). Nothing beats video gaming as one of the best forms of entertainment on the planet, and I’m so stoked to be able to represent you to our company and team, and to represent the tireless developers, designers, engineers, artists, and production staff who spend so much time and passion making this game for you.
I’m pretty much the freshest face around here and I’m still getting the lay of the land, but I’m learning so much more every single day. Bear with me, but I am here to try and carry the same torch dreamweaver carried for you so well. Please, feel free to chime in, share some tips, and ask me questions. You can find me on Discord as well, and I’ll do my best to respond as quickly as possible.

Welcome, Accendo!

June 07, 2021 - A Long Time Coming

A lot of you know that I have had a lot of health challenges, including bouts with two different types of cancer. I decided that I had too many scars on my body that had negative connotations due to all that, and a friend had created an utterly lovely pic of the EQ2 version of Niami. Things finally settled down enough on the pandemic front, that I bit the bullet and got my first (and only) tattoo. The ribbons being hit with the Rolling Pin of Doom (RPoD) are the awareness ribbons for thyroid cancer and endometrial cancer. It is still healing, and is itchy, but I present to you Mum as envisioned by my friend LG and brought to life by Micah of American Tattoo in Vista, CA!

May 25, 2021 - Red Tradeskill Shinies

This is from the patch notes for the hotfix that went in this morning:

Red tradeskill collection pieces are no longer LORE flagged. Those that were no-trade are still no-trade, but all red shinies should now no longer have the LORE tag attached to them.
This is an especially happy thing for those of us who have alt-armies still needing collection parts.

May 15, 2021 - {sigh} Oceansfull, Take 2

Sorry for the broken link in the other post, folks. You can find the Oceansfull article here. I will get the other post removed, or this post removed and the other fixed later. (Due to some recentish changes on the site, editing front page articles is wonky, and needs hubbyogre magic.)

May 15, 2021 - Oceansfull on Test!

The waters of the ocean are warming up and it is almost time for the annual celebration of Prexus. In preparation for this event, the Test server is now testing the new Oceansfull items and overseer quests. If you want to see all the lovely eye-candy for yourself before the event begins, you can check it out here.

May 04, 2021 - Login Issues

Something went askew this morning during the maintenance window, and EQII is still having issues. Dreamweaver had the following to say at 10:48 (Pacific) this morning:

"Alright the bounce did not resolve the issue with the login, we're still working on resolving the problem. Sorry everyone, thank you for your patience."
Hang tight, everyone! They are working on it.
