John Smedley Clarifies His WoW-Style MMO Comments

Written by Dethdlr on . Posted in Game Updates & Maintenance

As we reported earlier this week, Daybreak Games President John Smedley recently gave an interview to GamesIndustry.biz which included the following comments:

I firmly believe the days of the WoW-style MMO are over,” Smedley said. “And that means we have to change with the times. Luckily, we were kind of early on that bus as opposed to late. But we’re changing what we’re making. Look at H1Z1. Is it an MMO? Sure, by definition, but I would consider it a session-based online game with a lot of people. And I say that because the average life expectancy in H1Z1 might be 45 minutes, and that’s what today’s gamers want. How many people do you still know that are still raiding in WoW every night, or EverQuest and EverQuest II? It’s just the time commitment necessary has changed so much. That means we need to change with the times, and we are. So we’re getting interested in a broader array of games and gaming styles.”

There are those among the community who didn’t particularly like some of the things he had to say.  Yesterday, he took to Reddit to “clarify” what he was talking about.  I’ve added my two cents on the subject over on the page at Reddit which as of right now is up to 120 comments.  Let him know what you think about his comments and clarification.

Rum Cellar Launches Today – 28 April 2015

Written by Dethdlr on . Posted in Expansion News, Game Updates & Maintenance, Grouping, Raiding

rum_cellar_logo

Update: “Unlocking US live servers now.” – Bunji

Update: Downtime is now expected to extend until Noon Pacific time.  However, the link to purchase the Rum Cellar Campaign is now active, so we can pretend that’s the pre-order time window.  :)

Today marks the launch of the Rum Cellar Campaign which can be purchased here.

For those that haven’t been following along, the Rum Cellar Campaign is the first attempt at delivering Downloadable Content (DLC) for a price, rather than through traditional expansions (not counting the old Adventure Packs that were meant to be in addition to expansions, not a replacement for expansions).  It contains the “Far Seas Distillery” with 1 Solo, 1 Event Advanced Solo, 1 Heroic, 2 Event Heroics and a large Raid version for $15 ($13.50 for All Access).  Altar of Malice is required and should be available as a bundle for those that have yet to purchase AoM.  There will be another large Campaign this fall around the usual expansion release time.  The content released throughout the year in these Campaigns should add up to what we might have traditionally seen in a yearly expansion.

Roshen posted this on the EQ2Forums:

US EverQuest II Live Servers and website will be brought offline on Tuesday, April 28, 2015 at 7:00AM PDT* for the Rum Cellar Campaign Patch. Estimated downtime is approximately three hours.

Players will NOT be able to play this campaign until after this patch has completed, even if they purchase the campaign prior to this maintenance.

EU EverQuest II Live Servers will be brought offline on Tuesday, April 28, 2015 at 7:00AM PDT* for this update. (Approx. 3:00PM London Time on April 28, 2015). Estimated downtime is three hours.

Alle deutschsprachigen Server werden um 16:00 CET am 28.04.2015 zwecks einer Serveraktualisierung heruntergefahren. Die vorgesehene Stillstandszeit wird etwa 3 Stunde(n) betragen

Le serveur de langue française sera arrêté à 16:00 CET le 28-04-2015 pour une mise à jour du serveur. Le temps d’arrêt sera d’environ 3 heures.

Update notes for this downtime can be found in the Game Update Notes forum once they’re available.

Keep an eye on the EverQuest II forums for news if additional downtime is needed.

EDIT: Approx downtime is now three hours.

EDIT 2: This downtime will affect the website as well.

Update: As part of the launch festivities, Daybreak Games will be livestreaming as well:

Don’t miss today’s EverQuest 2 stream! To celebrate the launch of the Rum Cellar Campaign, we’ll be streaming today, Tuesday, April 28, 2015 starting at 11AM PDT* on twitch.tv/EverQuest 2

Today, Daybreak Games unveiled the new redesign of their website, DaybreakGames.com.  Along with the new site design, they also revealed their new logo and the new name for Station Cash: Daybreak Cash.  We are unsure of how long it will be before this gets changed in-game.  Here’s a screenshot of one of the five screens that cycle through on the new homepage.

Altar of Malice Beta Patching Issues

Written by Dethdlr on . Posted in Expansion News, Game Updates & Maintenance

Update: This issue has now been resolved. 

Having issues loading the non-streaming Altar of Malice Beta?  You’re not alone.  Starting about 6 hours ago people have been experiencing an error when trying to patch the non-streaming client for Beta.

Holly “Windstalker” Longdale just confirmed on Twitter that they are aware of the issue and are testing a fix.  She’s also written this on the forums:

“True, true. Sorry folks. We are updating a lot of code to handle memory issues better. There were a few unexpected results…which were bad, obviously.”

If you can’t wait for the fix, the streaming client seems to work if you uncheck “Full Download”.  You can get the streaming client here: http://launch.soe.com/installer/EQ2_Streaming_setup.exe

 Update:  Windstalker just posted this on Twitter:

Full Download patcher errors on Beta may not be fixed until tomorrow. We don’t want to interrupt players on server. Streaming works.

So if you want in before tomorrow, here’s the long version of one option for streaming.

Here’s the short version:

  1. Download this and run it: http://launch.soe.com/installer/EQ2_Streaming_setup.exe
  2. When it asks where to install it, add ” Streaming” to whatever it says and install it.
  3. When the launcher screen appears, change the version to Beta, uncheck Download Full and click Apply.
  4. While it’s downloading the 200mb or so, copy your Beta_charactername_eq2_uisettings.xml files from your normal EverQuest II\BetaServer folder to your new EverQuest II Streaming\BetaServer folder.
  5. When it’s finished downloading the 200mb or so, click Play.
  6. On the character select screen, wait til the little dragon stops running to make things a bit less laggy, then load whichever character you want to play.

Then, once all this is over and the regular version is working again, you can delete the entire EverQuest II Streaming folder and be back where you were before any of this happened.

There are of course other ways to do this, but this was the easiest for me. Your mileage may vary. Some restrictions apply. Void where prohibited. May cause shortness of breath, nervousness, and excess sweating. If any of these symptoms persist after the next patch, welcome to beta.

Update Notes: Tuesday, 8 April 2014

Written by Dethdlr on . Posted in Game Updates & Maintenance, Itemization, PvP/BG/Proving Grounds, Tradeskill

Fairly large update notes from the official forums.  Changes to taunts, 350 AAs, PvP updates, and mages say a fond farewell to carrying around a single, special arrow among other things.   Read the full notes after the break.

WEEKLY FEATURE

  • Players at level 95 can now level up their Alternate Advancements to level 350!

GENERAL

  • Mounted combat pets now retain their illusion form after the player lands with a flying or gliding mount.

POPULATION / ZONE PROGRESSION
General

  • Respawn and evacuate locations have been added to The Trembling Lagoon, Dythra’s Lair, and Cleansing of the Cove. Previously, respawning and evacuating within these zones sent you to The Feerrott.
  • Level 1-19 human skeletons, found in Commonlands and Antonica, now have a 6% chance to drop “Bloody Robe.”

ABILITIES / ALTERNATE ADVANCEMENT
General

  • Most taunts and detaunts are four times more effective.
  • The effectiveness of taunts and detaunts will improve based on debuffs applied to an NPC’s related resistances. For example, a Scout’s Evade will be more effective when their target’s physical mitigation is debuffed.
  • Taunts and detaunts will now benefit from the effects of the hate gain modifier stat.

Channeler

  • Mists of Poison, Poison Bolt and Channeled Cleansing now trigger Calm Connection.

Fighters

  • Recklessness now grants -150% Hate Gain. Berserkers, Bruisers and Shadowknights now use the same suspension mechanics as Guardians, Monks and Paladins. It now suspends all incoming threat transfers while active.

Producer’s Letter: ToV Coming Up!

Written by Dethdlr on . Posted in Expansion News, Game Updates & Maintenance, Itemization

From the EQ2 Forums:

Hello again, Norrathians!

We are all getting ready to usher in our next expansion, EverQuest II: Tears of Veeshan (ToV)…and not a moment too soon! Open Beta is being prepared now for Oct. 15 and launch is coming on Nov. 12!

In ToV, our next epic chapter unfolds! Kerafyrm, the great, evil prismatic dragon, has stolen a powerful artifact known as the Tear of Veeshan and slain Yelinak – Norrath’s wisest and eldest dragon. The New Combine Army that united Norrath’s peoples is fractured and powerless and it is said that Kerafyrm’s plots now reach far beyond Norrath. In fact, his plans are rumored to reach beyond time and space to all existence! You and your allies will be all that stands in his way.

   

Producer’s Letter: Coming Right Up!

Written by Dethdlr on . Posted in Expansion News, Free-to-Play (EQ2X), Game Updates & Maintenance

From the EQ2 Forums (emphasis added by me):

Mighty Norrathians!

Since SOE Live and Game Update 67: Darkness Dawns there’s been a lot of focus and excitement here about Heroic Characters and this year’s expansion, Tears of Veeshan. We’re well on our way and working hard!

To begin with, we have some date adjustments. Our expansion launch date has moved out a bit to mid-November and our Level 85 Heroic Characters are likely coming in the first week of October.

We got some great feedback on Heroic Characters and we wanted to polish it up to make it more user-friendly before we launch! We are still working on fine-tuning the details and I will have more info soon, I promise. Until we nail it down, I don’t want to throw misinformation about.

The introduction of Heroic Characters also made us change a few other things, like including EverQuest II: Destiny of Velious zones into the Free and Silver account access so Heroic Characters have a place to play! And while we are still going to offer theEverQuest II: Age of Discovery expansion, we will also sell the features individually, including the Beastlord class, Mercenaries, Dungeon Maker, Reforging, and Tradeskill Apprentices. We’re still working on pricing and have some other cool things in progress we’ll announce shortly.

Our 10th expansion, EverQuest II: Tears of Veeshan, is getting closer to Beta. This team is putting together an expansion that will be something special! The overland — Vesspyr Isles, the Eternal Broodlands — is really amazing. Flying through it is incredible with more and more variety and flavor every day. The dungeons are coming together beautifully and the content is too! We appreciate all the feedback we got during SOE Live and are grateful for all the playtests of the Channeler class. We are putting final touches on that too.

When Beta opens on Oct. 15, we hope you’ll come take a look at Tears of Veeshan and give us feedback!

There will be lots more to come so you’ll be hearing from me sooner ™ rather than later!

Dethdlr’s Dungeon: Itemization Hopes for this Expansion

Written by Dethdlr on . Posted in Daybreak Live (SOE Live/Fan Faire), Dethdlr's Dungeon, Expansion News

Dethdlr's Dungeon

I’ve got big hopes for EQ2 itemization and what we’ll see in the “Everquest II: Itemization Evolves” panel at SOE Live this year.  For me, there are several things that go into itemization.  It’s more extensive than just the items themselves.  Here are a few notes on itemization that I hope will be included in that evolution:

  • Go back to the days when gear was less cookie cutter. The days when you looked at more than just the Stamina stat to see if you were already wearing better.
  • Bring back heroic zone progression meaning make the top level heroic instance hard. As in “need to gear up in the easier instances before you have any chance at clearing it” hard. Remember zones like Palace of Ferzhul, Estate of Unrest,  Tower of Tactics, Elements of War?  This was something we used to work towards so it gave us a goal. Lately, we can clear the harder zones the first or second time we go in. If we can clear the hardest zone, what are we working towards?
  • Put the items in places that make sense. If zone X is required to get access to zone Y, and the quest sending me into zone X rewards me with boots, don’t put worse boots in the loot tables for zone Y. Nobody will ever wear them and it makes it seem like nobody was paying attention when placing the loot.
  • Put ultra-rare items into the heroic zones again that are desirable even by raiders. This gives us something to do. I remember people asking to run zones like Cella, Maidens, Najena’s Hollow Tower, even Obelisk of Blight way back when because they wanted an ultra-rare item that dropped in there. Quite often the next GU or expansion would come out before everybody got what they wanted out of all the zones. Again, this gave us something to work towards.

These don’t sound like difficult things to do and they used to do things pretty much like this until the last couple of years. Hopefully they go back to this way of doing things and will give us heroic group runners something to work towards again other than Obols, Spirits, or whatever other new currency they come up with.

From the EQ2 Forums:

GENERAL
  • Fixed an issue with the ticket goblin not spawning correctly.

AA Backup Redux – Think of the Beastlords!

Written by Dethdlr on . Posted in EQ2 Data & EQ2U, Expansion News

So last night, we announced that we had made a snapshot of the AAs for some 150,000 characters which people could view at Beetny.com. We were pretty proud of ourselves until someone asked if that included the Beastlord warder AAs.  It didn’t.  Beatny doesn’t cover Beastlord warders.

So because we try harder, we’ve gone back and made an actual backup of every character’s AAs right here on EQ2U and will hang onto it until well after the expansion.  That’s over 416,000 characters.

When the expansion hits on November 13th, you now have two backups you can use. The original labeled ‘(Autosaved) Pre-CoE’ and the new one is labeled ‘(Autosaved) Pre-CoE Spec at EQ2U.’ One of them is bound to have your info.

If you haven’t got an EQ2U account, please feel free to sign up and do your own AA Backup! And let us know in the Comments if you have any questions!

Update Notes: Thursday, 17 May 2012

Written by Dethdlr on . Posted in Game Updates & Maintenance, Itemization

Here are your update notes for Thursday, 17 May 2012:

POPULATION / ZONE PROGRESSION

  • Mount drops in the Underdepths and Betrayal in the Underdepths have been made less rare.

Dracur Prime: Sevalak Awakened

  • Sargon the Destructor text messages won’t go to the entire raid anymore, just the person about to be cast upon.  The duration of the red text messages has been shortened.

Dracur Prime: Vyskudra the Ancient

  • The player who slays an energized storm elemental and those closest to the slayer will receive the Elemental Storm Energy Buff.  The Elemental Stormstrike buff will no longer generate hate taunting the elemental stormlords.

Great Divide

  • The Cliff Stalkers in the Great Divide will now grant experience when slain.

Dethdlr’s Adornment Calculator – Update

Written by Dethdlr on . Posted in Itemization

A few days ago, I finally got around to doing some updates to Dethdlr’s Adornment Calculator.  Thanks to everyone who sent in bug reports over the last several months.  I think I’ve gotten all of them taken care of now but there may still be a few in there somewhere.

Also, I’ve added a second white adornment dropdown for each slot since a lot of the Skyshrine items have two white adornment slots.  Some two handers even have three white slots but I didn’t add a third dropdown.  Just use the secondary dropdown for those cases and make sure not to choose reuse speed since that doesn’t work in the primary slot.

If you don’t see the second white slot dropdown when you load the calculator, you’re seeing a cached version.  Try holding down Shift and Ctrl keys and press F5, or click the Refresh button/icon in your browser or whatever button/clicking combination you have to do to convince it to really reload the page and you should see the new version.

I still haven’t added in the public quest adornments or the class specific adornments for beastlords, those are still on the list of things to do.

As usual, let me know if you find anything out of whack.

Lyndro: 280 AAs Required to Level Past 90

Written by Dethdlr on . Posted in Game Updates & Maintenance

Akil “Lyndro” Hooper has posted a followup to his interview with Piestro on the official forums:

Hey folks,

I know that much of this is information that you already knew, but we wanted to get everything in a centralized place, so people don’t have to dig around to try and find the answers to these questions.

The AA requirement won’t be 320 for sure (We don’t want to require AoD), the bar for earning XP in 90 is going to be 280, because you have your heroic endlines at that point (and I hate large primes so 277 wasn’t going to work). The requirement exists so we (the developers) and you (the players) have a little more information about what a level 91+ player is. Right now if you form a pick up group, you really don’t have an idea whether your tank has 65 AAs or 317 AAs. The same goes for us, content for a level 90 with few AAs is pretty different than content for a level 90 with a whole lot of them.
