Update Notes: Wednesday, February 17, 2016 — SERVERS UP!

Written by Feldon on . Posted in EQ2, Game Updates & Maintenance, Grouping, Itemization, Raiding

8:30am PST Update: This maintenance appears to be running long.

10:00am PST Update from RadarX: I’ve updated the main post but we are currently looking at before 12:00 PM PT ([3PM EST] 8 PM GMT).

12:00pm PST Update: Servers are now up after a five hour downtime.

From the EQ2 Forums:

POPULATION / ZONE PROGRESSION
Maldura: The Forge of Ashes [Raid]

  • Changed the message given when triggering the Forge Golem.

LIVE EVENTS
The Erollisi Day “Lovely Lacquer” achievement can now be updated by crafting the passionate and romantic filigree rugs.

QUESTS

  • The Wind of Strife Blows Fickle – The update is now found in the truck at the foot of the bed in Viktor T’Hoth’s room, to better fit the description.
  • Restoring the Underfoot Cathedral – Each of the tormented Serilian spirits can now only be seen by players on the appropriate step of the quest, and they no longer can be damaged lower than 3% of their health (thus allowing them to be updated by the “Serilian Spirit Gems”).
  • A Mind of My Own – The quest journal now specifies that you can return to Talvrae if you ever lose the kobold pet.
  • Mount Stations: Greater Faydark – Triggering the mount station updates will now be much easier, even if the player is mounted.
  • Mount Stations: Greater Faydark – The Butcherblock Mountain station now properly updates the quest.
  • A Time of Growth – Obtaining another sapling from Arbos is much more intuitive, if you have misplaced it.

ITEMS

  • Corrected an issue that reduced ranged auto-attack damage.
  • Heroic and raid Terrors of Thalumbra armor rewards have been upgraded [in place], and all new armor rewards will now drop in Terrors of Thalumbra Heroic and raid zones.
  • Signature Rewards are no longer Relic, but are instead Prestige.
  • Confidence will now grant the correct bonuses when grouped.
  • Signet of Pure Terror no longer has an effect, and now grants base stats on the item itself.

      Yeah, that’s pretty huge, to be honest.

      I’m rather curious how the “new armor rewards” will work out.

        I’m expecting it go like

        Crafter -> Advanced Solo -> Rare Mastercrafter -> Heroic Tier 1 -> Heroic Fabled Tier 2 -> Masters Chosen Fabled/The New gear -> Raid -> Raid New Stuff

    whooo, yet again a lackluster TLE patch.. its amazing with how much they neglect TLE that people still play it.. we have had like 3 patch notes in the last 3 weeks.. and there are so many things needing fixes.

    Re TLE: when Daybreak announced time locked servers they stated quite clearly they would be “as is” and wouldn’t be changing stuff. They seem to have bowed to the customer pressure, and imo that is to the detriment of the live game, as they have such a small team.

    One thing they don’t clear up, if they are not changing the gear we already have, what happens to all those imbuing items I have used on the current gear?

    Do we get those back?

    So how do I get relic items back that I couldn’t use that I got rid of because of the sig item being relic?

      Not sure if it will work – but take a look at the shady swashbuckler on Nektulos Forest Docks. You can reacquire some of the heritage quest items you’ve lost for a small fee. I do not know if the signature rewards are part of his inventory but it is worth a shot.

    Ok so bets are open : What will they break with this patch ??

    Last patch they broke range auto-attack, before that we had furious barage not stacking, etc.. What will it be this week ?

    My prediction is : some kind of bug when you equip a relic or reforge problems with new/updated gear!

    Ah!! The joy of pushing untested stuff on live! :)

    Not changing the Relic status for the Crafting Signature questline was on purpose, according to Kander’s post on the forums.

      Solo, the sig line ring isn’t much. In raid, it very powerful. In group it’s a nice boost.
