*** Quests And Events ***
- Savage Lord's Totem (Beastlord Epic 1.5) - Moved the rares in Siren's Grotto that shared an encounter with the Ailing Walrus to a different encounter table and different spawn points. This should prevent rare spawn bonuses from preventing the Ailing Walrus from spawning.

- - The check for closest valid target will now skip any targets which have already been affected.

- - Fixed the bug where you could burn multiple tools with one use of the ember but only get credit for 1.
- Restored the darkwater piranha spawn in Nektulos Forest so that Roary Fishpouncer's Kerran Fishing Spear quest can again be completed.
- Night at the Museum - Added a speculative fix to prevent the situation where multiple waves spawn simultaneously.
- Breakdown in Communication - It is now possible to complete the quest to receive another Stone of Entry from Councilman Sislono Nislan if you have deleted your Stone of Entry, but don't have credit for completing the Qinimi execution event.
- Rogue Epic 1.0 - Made some changes to Renux Herkanor's dialogues so that they can all be reached and some of the more obscure ones can be found more easily.
- Pyrique Redwing - It's no longer possible to identify the real from the fake Pyrique's Shadow by considering them.
- Keeper's Imbalance Achievement - Fixed the description for this achievement to match the actual requirement. You only have to push the keepers out of balance by 20 percent.


*** Spells ***
- Fixed a bug that was preventing some NPCs from summoning their custom pets.
- Magician - Call of the Hero (including AA versions) can now only be cast on other players.


*** NPCs ***
- Bathouse Manager Hakvar is now Bathhouse Manager Hakvar, because he manages a house with baths and not a house for bats.
- Restored three missing rare spawns from the Broodlands.
- Removed the dragorn box and dragorn chest that would sometimes spawn upon killing an NPC in The Bloodfields.
- Made 1,052 NPCs immune to charm. These are rare NPCs and those with very long respawn times.
- The Bloodmoon Orcs that harry Gnome Memorial Mountain will now give positive faction hits with the Gnomelikes when the orcs are in their were-form.
- Bloodmoon Night-Orcs faction standing can now be viewed in the faction window in the Secrets of Faydwer Category.


*** Collections ***
- Removed an unreachable collection location in the Empires of Kunark version of Droga.
- Corrected an error that was preventing half of the collectibles in Skyfire (Ring of Scale) from spawning.


*** UI ***
- When inspecting a spell on an item, it will now correctly display the spell at the correct level.
- Corrected an issue where augmentation procs would not display the correct damage when viewed inside another item.
- Fixed the issue that broke the ability to invite someone to your DZ or task by clicking on their name in chat.
- Corrected an issue where leaving an item on a corpse would display an unformatted NPC name.
- Made the following changes to the Spell Display Window:
- - Added directional AE degrees, reflectability, and focused spell duration.
- - Added text samples of what is seen when the spell lands on you or others.
- - Increased precision of focused cast time.
- - Fixed a bug where Gift of Mana caused focused mana cost to display incorrectly.
- Cleaned up the tribute related windows. The current tier of a tribute will now be highlighted to clearly indicate which one is available. Each tier will also display information more clearly, much like the item display window.
- Adjusted the default location of the Mercenary Management window and the Tutorial Help window to not overlap with the Task Overlay window.

June 17, 2019 - Summer Producer's Letter

Good day, Norrathians!

From 20th Anniversary in March to now, it’s been a blur!

Thanks to the communities on all servers for a great year so far, and a big welcome to the communities that have formed on Selo and Mangler. All aboard, me hearties, on this incredible journey!

We thought we’d take a minute to update you on a few things that are immediately on the horizon!



Hardcore Heritage has Begun. Do You have the Skeelz?

Now until June 18, 2019, take part in Phase 1 of Hardcore Heritage content that includes higher difficulty and better rewards in Blackburrow, Cazic Thule, Ruins of Old Guk, and Unrest. Plus, you can enjoy Sebilis Hardcore Heritage content through July 2, 2019.

Phase 2 kicks off on June 19, 2019. Test your mettle against more difficult content for greater rewards in: Crushbone, Permafrost, Castle Mistmoore, and Nagafen’s Lair.

Check in the in-game Event Calendar for more info!



Let’s Celebrate Pride!

This year, you can get our Pride-themed bunny familiars from the in-game store for free starting June 21 until July 31, 2019. As a studio, we support every gamer who contributes to our community. Show the love!





Death, Death, Death in July!

The Coldain in the Great Divide will need your help to defeat their enemies! Stand tall…ahem.

Seek out Tudasali July 3 through July 30, 2019, to lend your support during the Death, Death, Death event!



Expansion Morsels

While it’s REALLY early to be chatting about expansions, we thought we’d let you know that you may want to level up your characters to max. We will be adding 5 levels for characters this year!

There’s plenty to talk about, but we’re going to wait until the fall to get into the details. Still, can’t hurt to get ahead of the game, as it were.

We’ll let you know the expansion lore and location at a later date, but it will be unfamiliarly familiar. [editor's note: :eyeroll:]



Getting Together

We are still working on planning a fan event (now probably next year to give EverQuest and EverQuest II fans and guilds time to prepare and plan). We’ll have some questions to ask the community about who might be interested in joining us for a weekend fan event, focused on the them, with Q&As, roundtables, and activities for gamers and roleplayers. Fun stuff!

We’ll start rolling out some questions and surveys as we move forward!



20th Anniversary Bundles

The Anniversary packs won’t last forever. Just a heads up if you were on the fence about getting one. They’re a really good deal! Check them out here: https://www.everquest.com/packs


Come online and join us!

Sincerely,
Holly "Windstalker" Longdale

- Unfettered Emerald Excellence - Fixed a bug that was causing raid challenge achievements to always be granted.
- Raid events from Veil of Alaris and later will now grant more progression keys after they have been open for 3, 6, and 9 months on live servers. Previously this would begin after 6 months. On Progression Servers these events will grant more progression keys as soon as the expansion unlocks, and add additional bonuses after each of the next two expansions unlock or at 3 month intervals, whichever is faster.

Note that the duration of the decal is not associated with the duration of the debuff and the decal will not spread with the debuff.
- - Improved messaging for the event. All important event messages should use the Event Messages filter and color. Added many messages, such as indicating how many ballista bolts struck the boss.
