Universal Chat System Issue

We're currently working on fixing some post server-merge issues with the universal chat system (chat channels). Once fixed, you might see some unusual chat message refreshing afterwards, and you may need to restart your client if you encounter issues using chat channels / in-game chat mail.

Game Update Notes - July 17, 2024

Highlights


  • The Thornblade server has been merged into Mischief.

Items

  • Sodden Staff of the Kedge's teleport to Dagnor's Cauldron no longer places players underwater. The new location is still potentially dangerous for players lower than level 15, but should now be less drown-y.
  • Eye of Fear and all tiers of Rain of Fear armor template items (Dread Touched, Dread, Dread Washed, and Dread Infused Armguards, Boots, Bracer, Gloves, Helm, Leggings, and Tunic) have been flagged as Quest Items.
  • The type 7/8 augments available from Miacallie Herlsas in Tides of Time will now be in Lore-Equip groups based on the predominant stat they give.
  • Fixed an issue where "The Golden Pick" has been doing more damage than intended.
  • Updated Beryl Hero's Forge Ornaments to drop in all of the hotzones. Additionally, there are new updated hotzones that can be picked up to level 105.

Quests & Events

  • Fixed an issue where Sienn Kastane doesn't respond correctly if the player did the the epic 1.5 pre quest.
  • Fixed an issue with "The Rise of Marnek" quests not correctly registering the death of Skeleton L`rodd.
  • Fixed an issue with the "Predators of the Sea" quest not registering the location of the goblin camp after the zone was changed.
  • Fixed an issue with "Into the Leviathan's Lair" that wouldn't allow you to accept the quest with the correct amount of people in your group.
  • Reduced the melee and spell damage done by NPCs from level 30 to 75 in heroic adventures, including the Tides of Time, that use the "Normal" heroic adventures table.
  • Tides of Time (Heroic Adventures): Reduced the damage of spells cast within the Tides of Time. The level 60 range will see the most significant change.
  • Fixed an error in the spell damage scalar for NPCs above level 120. This will result in increased spell damage in heroic adventures when an NPC is above level 120.
  • Added a minimum level to Franklin Teek hotzone quests.

Mercenaries

  • Buffs that are too powerful for a mercenary will now be removed when it is unsuspended.

Progression Servers

  • Removed the additional rules acceptance dialog box from Aradune and Rizlona.

Miscellaneous

  • Task replay and request timer chat messages will now show seconds remaining.
  • Corrected an issue with the Tribute Gain Modifier not affecting guild tribute donations.
  • Improved world performance when a large number of players are online.
  • Weapons will no longer give a damage bonus if they are equipped but unusable.
  • Optimized spell processing which should result in increased zone performance.
  • Made performance improvements to the Tradeskill Depot.
  • Added the option to use /who on a player by clicking their name in a chat window.

UI

  • Minimizing the game's desktop window no longer causes the client to become unresponsive.
  • The game client's desktop window correctly saves its state when camping out by clicking the close window button.
  • The game client once again saves the size and position of its desktop window immediately after manually moving/resizing the window.
  • Updated the server select screen to fit a resolution of 1024x768.
  • With the New UI Engine display option disabled, most in-game windows will now save their positions distinctly for each desktop window mode: restored, maximized, and fullscreen. Notable exceptions that are not yet fixed include: Main Chat Window.
  • Fixed an issue where some game windows would reopen automatically after the player closes them.
  • Fixed a visual artifact where the cursor would incorrectly display the previously held item.
  • Reduced game hitching when using ALT+TAB while in full screen mode.
  • Fixed a bug that unmaximized the game's desktop window if it was minimized.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the game's desktop window to unminimize when it was deactivated.

Previously Updated

  • The game's desktop window once again correctly toggles between maximized and minimized state.
  • The game client no longer crashes when spamming the WINDOWS+D key.

Information overload!

As the 2 servers are merging together (doesn't really matter which is mergining into which), why isn't the same being done to Mischief?

Players on both servers are in the same boat."


Mischief server is remaining in tact, Thornblade is merging into it. They are not merging together so much as Thornblade will simply no longer exist because Mischief will absorb the players remining on it.

Hardcore Heritage is back!


Challenges for the toughest of adventurers!

Hardcore Heritage is back at it with its challenges! They may not be the most difficult, but they sure are not the easiest either. Everything began today and ends on July 2, 2024 at 11:00 p.m. PDT.

For anyone new to Hardcore Heritage, popular zones from EverQuest's early days get ramped for higher-level characters to earn some sweet, sweet loot. Only if you are capable enough to survive until the end!

Here's the zone schedule for this year.

Phase 1: June 5 to June 18, characters at a suggested level of 80 and up can cross over to the dark side in Blackburrow, Cazic Thule, and characters at a suggested level of 85 and up can take on The Ruins of Old Guk, and the Estate of Unrest.

Phase 2: June 19 to July 2, put on the new, fancy loot and head to Crushbone and Permafrost if you're at a suggested level of 90 and above, and then head over to The Castle of Mistmoore and Nagafen's Lair if you're at a suggested level of 100 and above.

We're also turning things up to 11 in raids in those zones again. Engage the more challenging Emperor Crush, Lady Vox, Lord Nagafen, and Trakanon.
Here's the raid schedule for this year.

Old Sebilis: June 5 to July 2, if you're at a suggested level of 105 and above, Ruins of Sebilis beckons and wants to see if you have what it takes to survive. Once that's done, the denizens of Trakanon will call out and taunt you to bring your best and do your worst!

Challenges and loot galore await the bravest of heroes, do you have what it takes?

(Must have Empires of Kunark unlocked.)
