Update Notes: Tuesday July 18, 2017

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

Until we get a new Community Manager for EQ2, it looks like Caith is posting the downtime notices:

All EverQuest II Servers will be brought offline on Thursday, July 18th, 2017 at 7:00 AM PT (14:00 UTC) for an update. Estimated downtime is less than 2 hours.

From the EQ2 Forums:

SUMMER ETHEREALS

  • Increased the maximum Ethereal reward chances from 3 to 4.
  • Added a forced description to the Ethereal cloak merchant lists to correct an issue where it did not always display the purchase requirements on the upgraded cloaks.
  • Two new [Heroic] daily missions that each reward a Sathirian Ethereal crate are now available from Okzil <Daily Mission> in Obulus Frontier within Crusaders’ Cave at 526.8, 252.5, 1295.1.
  • Both missions can be completed each day, but only one can be active at a time.
  • Both missions can only be updated and completed within a Kunark Ascending dungeon labeled [Heroic].
  • Neither mission will be granted if you already received 4 Sathirian Ethereal reward crates for the day. Because of this restriction, neither mission can be shared.

POPULATION / ZONE PROGRESSION
General

  • Corrected an issue that prevented global buffs from applying to some base game content encounters, including Venekor within Spirits of the Lost.

Vaedenmoor: Heart of Nightmares [Raid]

  • Corrected an issue that would sometimes cause the Monolith of Nightmares and Monolith of Torment to not spawn for the final encounter when an add was killed.
  • Waking Dream and Waking Nightmare adds should no longer occasionally forget to tell their boss that they are no longer around between pulls.

ABILITIES
Ranger

  • Corrected an issue with Heartseeker Hawk that granted them double the benefit from some stat buffs.

QUESTS

  • All classes may now select any of the rewards for Karg’s Gratitude.

ITEMS

  • Fragile as Glass will no longer stack from multiple casters.
  • Added the missing primary stats to all Inheritance Merchant rewards.
  • Corrected an issue that prevented the effect from the Polished Granite Tomahawk from applying.

      They are probably wisely jumping the sinking ship that is the SS EQ2 ;-) :shock: :roll: :mrgreen:

        The people that run the game have already moved to the discord-thingy chat, I’m surprised the original forums are even still up.

          Discord is their safe space. They can filter out feedback they don’t like and keep their fantasy world going where every thing that they do is perfect etc.

      EverQuest II Community Manager 2014

      http://eq2wire.com/2014/02/21/meet-luperza-everquest-2s-new-community-manager/
      “Margaret “Luperza” Krohn (community manager for Planetside 2) will be swapping with Tony “RadarX“ who has been EQ2′s community manager since last August.”

      An aside; Thumbs up.

      “Ry Schueller, and many of you know me as “Roshen.” I’ve completed a number of quests that will let me unlock the title of Community Manager for EverQuest II after Luperza transitions into other things.”

      I’m not sure what he means, but apparently RadarX’s account has disappeared from Discord.
      Did he get the Axe or did he transfer to a new game?

        RadarX’s last day at Daybreak Games was Friday. After 8 years, he has decided now is the time to move on. I’m not sure what his next plan is but I don’t think it’s for a gaming company. He posted a friends-only goodbye notice on Facebook.

    What? After the spam blast I was expecting goblin telemarketers on all the docks hawking useless overpriced junk.

        They saved that for the next patch, this one was already too meaty.

    Anyone else not getting updates in Event Heroics for the Ethereal quests?

      I’m not sure why you would expect to receive updates from Event Heroics. That is unless you read too much into what was said.

        Apparently I did. Oddly specific restriction, though.
