From the EQ2 Forums:

GENERAL

  • Target casting bars will now clear the spell when they fail to successfully cast.

POPULATION / ZONE PROGRESSION
Chardok

  • Queen Velazul will no longer reset if attempted without a group.

Wurmbone Crag

  • Greatly reduced the HP on Errlik the Bludgeoner’s gnorgers. His gnorger that casts the Doom Tooth fear is now labeled as “a dooming gnorger” for priority killing.

ABILITIES / ALTERNATE ADVANCEMENT
Sorcerer

  • Sanguine Sacrifice should now apply reliably.

GUILD HALL AMENITIES
Transport

  • The Magic Carpet to Norrath now includes the Great Divide and Jarsath Wastes destinations.

TRADESKILLS

  • Level 91, 93, and 95 tradeskill writs are now available!

ITEMS

  • End line Chains of Eternity collection quest rewards have had their quality improved to match the effort of attaining them. They are now Ethereal.
  • Fixed stats on [eq2u]Empowered Chestwrap of the Silver Reaper[/eq2u] to be in line with other rare drop breastplates from Drinal. Adornments will pop off of this breastplate, and reforges will be reset with reforge tokens.

Note: The stats on the Empowered Chestwrap of the Silver Reaper will be updated on EQ2U the first time someone views the item details page after 7:45am tomorrow morning. :)

    Is this the “Nerf Plat Chests” update too? (ie: PR & SoH?)

    Never done pr or soh for the plat run, but I would expect that nerfing it wouldn’t be appreciated by those who do

    “Endline CoE Collection rewards” now ethereal? Wonder If end line is referring to the blue scroll case one or all of the CoE collections? Remember spending piles of plat on shinies and the reward was like 42 silver? -_-

    Did they sort the launchpad shenanigans out?

    I would be surprised if they nerf PR etc. Many (myself included) run that to get the platinum they need to buy Krono. Lower krono demand would mean less cash for Sony.

    PR hasn’t been nerfed. I’m guessing SoH is untouched as well.

    They still need to fix the slash guy in Wurmbone Crag, that guys nails the merc every time on the first slash.

    Tell your merc to back off when he starts to emote. Works every time.

    And according to Dexella, the launchpad has been fixed.
