January 6, 2012 - Updates

Group Gear and Raid Gear pages in VoA section now have cookie tracking so it should be tracking what you filtered for each time you come back to the page (if not please contact us :)). We have also updated the Dev Tracker to fit our Layout and finally, Type 3 Aug page should be up in the next day or so, as well as Mission Chest Loot stuff.




Update round 2: We have updated our Veil of Alaris guide to now include VoA Type 3 Augs! This page is now available in the Veil of Alaris section.

Also, I have updated the House of Thule Visibles section to reflect the new template prices (thanks to Rathe.Moklianne for pointing this out!). While working on the Visibles page, I also updated the generic "Click" links to instead show the class abbreviations, to match our VoA armor pages. I also updated the Alaran Language page to include the Alaran requirement for the Type 3 Augs.



January 4, 2012 - Back from holiday break

I hope everyone enjoyed the Holidays!

Today I spent a bunch of time on the site, updating things that have been neglected over the past couple weeks, due to the holidays and whatnot. All raid item links and event info is updated through Tier 3. I updated a bunch of group gear links again, I updated some PH and drop info, and I updated some named spawn locations and maps. I would like to thank everyone who has submitted information to us. I apologize that I did not get to respond to each one personally. I would like to send a special thank you out to the following people who have submitted information to us: Krukker, Gore, Baldbum, Drew, Amio, Oakenn, Genadine, Tettzou, and anyone else I may have forgotten (sorry!).

I would also like to mention that we are currently working out the details for the very first EQResource contest! There will be a 30 day EQ game card up for grabs, and possibly other nice prizes. Check back often, we hope to have this contest up and running this week!
