In other news, here are some of the tradeskill-related items from the patch notes this morning:

  • The default size on the Fancy Black Vacrul Bishop house item has been changed to match the default size on the rest of the chess pieces.
  • Corrected an issue with guildhalls that prevented Home Depots from loading into the list.

December 01, 2021 - Extra Downtime

There was a database issue found once the servers came up today, so the servers were brought back down. Keep an eye on this forum thread for more details as they become available.

November 30, 2021 - VoV Tomorrow!

The Visions of Vetrovia expansion launches tomorrow. Downtime starts at 7 a.m. Pacific, and is expected to last around 5 hours, if all goes well. Here is a quick promotional video from the EverQuest II YouTube account to get you started. My Visions of Vetrovia Crafting and Housing Information Clearinghouse continues to be updated with more screenshots and other details, and I will continue updating it over the next week or so if anything further comes to light that needs to be added.

Please remember that this means that the prelude event Beyond the Shattered Sea will end at 7 a.m. Pacific, when the servers go down for the expansion patch.

November 27, 2021 - Visions of Vetrovia Information

I am still frantically working on tons and tons of image editing, and will be adding to the following article as I finish things. Check out the Visions of Vetrovia Crafting and Housing Information Clearinghouse. Updates after this article is posted will be called out at the bottom of that page, so that you can see what is new since you last checked out the page.

November 26, 2021 - Frostfell Preview and a Reminder

The Frostfell 2021 preview is now up. This event will go live on December 7 at 8:00 a.m. Pacific (after a patch due to zone art/music that needs to go in with activation).

Remember that the prelude event Beyond the Shattered Sea will turn off with the expansion patch on December 1. Make sure to do your token-earning before then! The vendor will stick around through the end of the year, but the quests and shinies will be going away.

I hope to start on the expansion preview after I get a bit of sleeeeeep. (This is really being posted at about 9 p.m. on November 25, but our server clock seems askew, so I am "posting in the future!")

November 08, 2021 - Surprise!

No long-winded message to go with this, as I am trying to actually get a chunk of work done for the expansion, but ... this happened today

November 04, 2021 - Public Service Announcement

Niami on the Test server is me. As of today, there is no Niami on any live server that is me. Please do not pester anyone else that you see with that name on the live servers, as they are not me.

November 04, 2021 - Heroes Festival Plus an Oops

I am sorry we were unavailable without warning for the last 24 hours (and for some of you it may be longer). Ngreth was changing who handles our DNS entries, and things like that take time to crawl through the internet, updating as they go.

Meanwhile, thanks to the fabulous Ocarinah, even though I have been buried in w*rk, there is a Heroes' Festival 2021 article ready for you. This event will go live this Friday, November 5.

November 02, 2021 - Wings Over Norrath

I have been beyond swamped, so I have not started on my usual expansion preview article at all yet. This was a very rushed and low-quality screenshot, but the above is a view of the crafter-only mount that will be earned at the end of the Visions of Vetrovia tradeskill signature line. It was added to beta today.

In other news, I have put together an Extra Life update page for those who want to follow my progress on Saturday. I "should" be posting some expansion video footage on there during the day Saturday as well.

October 29, 2021 - Playing it Forward

The next expansion beta is now in full swing. Nights of the Dead is underway. Heroes' Festival is on the Test server (more on that this weekend). Daylight Savings time is less than two weeks away for most Americans. What does all that mean? It means it is almost time for me to "Play it Forward" with Extra Life along with the rest of Team Darkpaw.

What is Extra Life, and why am I, who tries very hard to not ask for help, pinging the community about it? It is a nonprofit charity where gamers raise money to help sick kids and the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.

Being hospitalized for something major is scary. As I learned first-hand last year, being hospitalized for something major during a global pandemic is utterly terrifying. I cannot imagine how much worse it is for sick kids when they are cut off from their family, unable to have them visit, unable to have the comfort of a simple hug, and so on. It is bad enough during normal times, and these times are definitely not normal.

On November 6, 2021 I will join gamers from around the world in raising money for the Children's Miracle Network to benefit sick kids. The team I have joined, Team Darkpaw, features both staff and players of EQ and EQ2 and is raising money for the phenomenal Rady's Children's Hospital in San Diego.

Please consider donating if you can. (And if it is a choice between donating to the site and donating to Extra Life, please donate to Extra Life. Also know that I have already donated some of the money from recent site donations to the cause, and will likely donate more of it soon.) If you are already participating, or donating through a friend, thank you. If money is too tight and you want to do something to help, perhaps you can consider sharing a post on your social medial account highlighting this gamer-driven charity. Here are links for Team Darkpaw as well as my personal fundraising page through Extra Life. Add a link to your sig in the official forums for a week or so, tweet it, facebook it! If you're on Twitter, you can retweet the pinned tweet found here.

Thank you if you read this far. This is a wonderful way to show the world what determined and caring gamers can do. I now return you to your regularly scheduled escape from reality. ~Mum
