Regarding Third Party Cheat Programs

As stated within the EverQuest Rules of Conduct, you may not modify your EverQuest gameplay by using any banned/cheat programs in game. Recently we greatly improved our algorithms for finding problem accounts, and have started putting these methods to use. We have been consistently banning accounts that are verified cheaters, and will be continuing to accelerate our banning process. We will be issuing permanent bans to all verified cheaters that we detect. If you do not want to lose your ability to play EverQuest, it is imperative that you refrain from using any cheat programs. Though it may take a bit of time to remove infringing accounts from the game, we are being thorough and will continue this effort until it is no longer required. - The EverQuest Team As an additional note: Please do not mention ANY specific cheating programs here on our forums. This will lead to your forum privileges being revoked and could open up an investigation that may result in action being taken against your EverQuest account.

Live Update Bugs: 6/20/2018

Speaking of bugged out TBM expansion stuff, the Defenders of the Faith mission appears to newly be totally uncompletable. The sixth and and penultimate step of the mission "You must destroy those that were infected by the Adan's last breath. 0/2 (Plane of Health)" is bugged out. You get quest credit for killing infected winged defenders. However it looks like somewhere in there someone changed it to spawn one infected winged defender and one infected grand overseer. The infected grand overseer does not count for the quest progression and thus you can never progress beyond 1/2, thus making it impossible to complete the task, which thus breaks completion of the achievement Champion of the Plane of Health and makes the Quintessence of Health completely unobtainable. "
This is fixed internally and the fix should go in with the July patch.

Alchemy potion restrictions changes

I don't know if anyone has caught this yet but XVI, XVII, XVIII and XIX don't have expansions set. It should be, XVI - Veil of Alaris XVII - Rain of Fear XVIII - The Darkened Sea XIX - Ring of Scale"
yeah it should, BUT they are also restricted by component availability (I'm fairly certain) so I haven't stressed about it yet.
I noticed this as well and set them correctly on allakhazam. I also noticed the Distillate of Spirituality potions have expansions set incorrectly in Ngreth's post. They should be
  • Distillate of Spirituality XVII - Rain of Fear
  • Distillate of Spirituality XVIII - The Darkened Sea
  • Distillate of Spirituality XIX - Ring of Scale
"
Hrm. I made this list form a query... so they may be off.

They let every class cheaply and easily cover their own healing in many raid situations with light to moderate AEs where you'd typically need a priest to cover that group.

Alchemy potion restrictions changes

So, the patch note about this is vague, mostly because we don't want a long, drawn-out explanation in the patch notes. Therefore, there is this post. Alchemy distillates have a required level. For each alchemy distillate, we found the player spell it most resembled. We compared the potion to the spell. If the potion is less powerful than the player spell at the required level, then we marked it to be allowed. If the potion is more powerful, we delayed it's entry to the game until the player spells became more powerful, up to Prophesy of Ro. If the potion was always more powerful, we marked it for Prophesy of Ro unlock. The specific example of this is the damage shield potions. One exception we made was to change the power of some mid-level shaman and druid regeneration spells. (that is noted in spells) Then, We also marked the potions to be restricted if it's required level is above player levels (no making level 106 potions from the start to get skill... not that the components are available for the 106 potions... but the general idea is there and this covers the gaps where components for higher level potions may be available) Then we took the more restrictive of those choices and restricted the alchemy combines to that era. The exception to this is where there were already long-term restrictions on potions. This is mostly the XI to XIII potions. I may address that again in the future, but for now, I stuck with restrictions that were already years old. This resulted in a list that is best given to you in table form: RECIPE - Restriction Distillate of Alacrity I - No Restriction Distillate of Alacrity II - No Restriction Distillate of Alacrity III -

Game Update Notes: April 18, 2018

April 18, 2018 _____________________ *** Highlights *** - EverQuest will no longer run on Windows Vista or older operating systems. Please refer to the minimum system requirements on our website. - Made a number of improvements to hotbars. See the UI section below for details. *** Items *** - Upgraded the model on Jeweled Sarnak Focus of the Elemental, Jeweled Hoarded Worker Sledgemallet, and Jeweled Hoarded Blood Orchid Katana to an equivalent model with particles. - Changed Guardian's Boon to affect all combat skills and not only 1h blunt. - Ingenious and Savvy Conflagrant Earrings now have the standard recast timer for Geomantra. - Focused Strike of the Blood Orchid now checks against chromatic resists. - The Skull of Null and Jeweled Skull of Null are now convertible items. One item is the full charm, the other is for clicking from inventory. - - The equippable version requires that it is equipped for the click to work (This was true already due to it being a charm, though some caching would allow it to work if it was equipped then unequipped). - - As a side effect, converting and converting back will fix the charms that are not working for players that had the Skull before the evolving data was attached. - Corrected the names of Faycite Shards available from Ring of Scale vendors. Shards that change spell duration are now correctly called Durus and shards that change spell recast time are correctly called Tempus. - Corrected errors in the lore and text for Cliff Stone, Scorpikis Worry Stone, Magma Stone, Enchanted Dragon Scale. - Added stats, for reference only, to power sources. - Old style molds for weapon ornaments now have a convert button to change them into a new style ornament augment. - Gnomish Water Pistol no longer stacks. - Many unused tradeskill items have been removed from vendors. This mostly affected old Dragons of Norrath or Prophecy of Ro cultural items. - - The item information that shows "This item is no longer used in tradeskills" has been removed. - Reverted the models of the starting weapons Short Sword* and Club* to a classic look. *** Tradeskills *** - Changed Ring of Scale poison drops from "Tainted X" to "Desiccated X." - Changed the required level of all Ring of Scale poisons and components to 106. - Fixed the name of the recipe for Tome of Savage Volley Rk. II. - Fixed all cases where multiple recipes for a tradeskill shared the same recipe name. - Crestra's Earring combines now require a minimum skill to attempt. For fishing this is 200. For the 202 trivial combines the minimum skill is 202. All other combines require a minimum skill of 300. - Phlogiston items are now Prestige. - Fixed all cases where multiple recipes for a tradeskill shared the same recipe name. - Tradeskill-created ornaments are now augments. *** Quests And Events *** - 19th Anniversary quests no longer require the player to own the Ring of Scale expansion, but do require Ring of Scale to be open on the server before they appear. - A Formal Dinner Party (19th Anniversary) - Made several changes to this mission: - - Removed the erroneous faction hit on some NPCs. - - Reduced the difficulty of most, but not all, NPCs. - - Corrected some typos and misspellings. - - Removed the two orcs from the other side of the dining room door. - - Players will not get the secondary success for proper investigation if they give Melion the incorrect food. - - The instance will now only allow a total of 6 players and/or mercenaries. - - This mission will only reward one red berry paste in a chest if the mission is done correctly. - - While the berry paste is appreciated, the augment will no longer be given to players that have not completed the mission. - - The task will now reward a minimum of 5 currency on completion instead of scaling down to 0 at low levels. - Lost but Not Forgotten (19th Anniversary) - Various changes and improvements have been made to this Heroic Adventure. - - Harris Feril's adds now share aggro with him. - - Harris Feril's HP will be locked until his adds have been slain. - - Forceful Presence's adds now share aggro with her. - - Forceful Presence's HP will be locked until her adds have been slain. - - Forceful Presence should no longer teleport to an unreachable location. - - If anyone in the ward's area of effect has the Warded Bag, no one will be teleported. - - The message indicating how to remove the ward should display more reliably. - - Messages indicating that the Forceful Presence will soon spawn should display more reliably. - - Bosses are now immune to many crowd control effects. - - The task now locks on element 6 instead of element 3. - - Sila will no longer give her medallion to the person that gives her Hilus's Journal, as this method of receiving the medallion doesn't update the task. The task expects the medallion to be looted from the Forceful Presence. - - This task will now reward a minimum of 5 currency on completion instead of scaling down to 0 at low levels. - Pieces is Pieces (19th Anniversary) - Made several changes to this quest: - - The combine for Deep Caverns Collector's Case now requires the task to be complete. - - Quest items are no longer marked as collectible and are now lore. - - Changed the replay timer so it no longer conflicts with Fish Eyes in the Dark. - Liquid Courage (16th Anniversary) - The spells cast by NPCs in this Heroic Adventure will now scale correctly. - Defending Knowledge (15th Anniversary) - The task will only give the horn reward when the task is complete. - End of Empire (Mission) - This should now give the proper challenge achievement for Stalwart Guardian. - Balance of Power (Mission) - The ghost versions of the bosses will now have the undead property. - All Ring of Scale raids - Di`Zok Hero's Forge ornaments no longer drop directly from bosses.

Test Update 04/10/18 - Patch Notes and Discussions

April 10, 2018 _____________________ *** Items *** - Upgraded the model on Jeweled Sarnak Focus of the Elemental, Jeweled Hoarded Worker Sledgemallet, and Jeweled Hoarded Blood Orchid Katana to an equivalent model with particles. - Changed Guardian's Boon to affect all combat skills and not only blunt. - Ingenious and Savvy Conflagrant Earrings now have the standard recast timer for Geomantra. - Focused Strike of the Blood Orchid now uses Chromatic resists. - The Skull of Null and Jeweled Skull of Null are now convertible items. One item is the full charm, the other is for clicking from inventory. - - The equippable version requires that it is equipped for the click to work (This was true already due to it being a charm, though some caching would allow it to work if it was equipped then unequipped). - - As a side effect, converting and converting back will fix the charms that are not working for players that had the Skull before the evolving data was attached. - Corrected the names of Faycite Shards available from Ring of Scale vendors. Shards that change spell duration are now correctly called Durus and shards that change spell recast time are correctly called Tempus. - Corrected errors in the lore and text for Cliff Stone, Scorpikis Worry Stone, Magma Stone, Enchanted Dragon Scale. - Added stats, for reference only, to power sources. - Old style molds for weapon ornaments have a convert button to change them into an Augment. - Many unused tradeskill items have been removed from vendors.
