Game Update 103: The Managerie Now On Test

Written by Feldon on . Posted in DGC Wants Feedback, EQ2, Game Updates & Maintenance

A large portion of Game Update 103: The Managerie is now available for Testing on the Test server. Please note that it is not possible to COPY characters to the Test server. This will present an obvious roadblock to most for testing level 100 content unless you happen to have one of the 189 level 100 characters which has been active on Test in the last four months.

Here are some highlights from the Test Update Notes for May 2, 2017 from the EQ2 Forums:

NEW KUNARK ASCENDING HERITAGE QUEST

  • Interested adventurers should search within Obulus Frontier for clues on how to begin this new quest. Good hunting!

FAMILIARS

  • Experts in the mysterious menagerie have discovered a subspecies of creatures that have been found to increase the master’s ability to channel greater power.
  • You can access the Familiar window via a tab in your character UI.

PROVING GROUNDS

  • This update includes two new cooperative competition zones (Battle upon the High Seas and Battle for Felwithe) that allow groups of up to six to compete against each other in timed races to see who can complete the zones’ challenges first.
  • The fastest times for each round, currently set for seven days, will be recorded on a leader board.

Removed the Membership requirement from the following zones:

  • City of the Nayad [Advanced Solo]
  • City of the Nayad [Heroic], Scourge Keep [Advanced Solo]
  • Scourge Keep [Heroic], The Fabled Antechamber of Fate [Raid]
  • The Fabled Cavern of the Crustaceans [Raid]
  • The Fabled Chamber of Immortality
  • The Fabled Nizara
  • The Fabled Nizara

Community Update Regarding Yesterday’s Server Issues

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

From EQ2 Producer Lauren “Mooncast” McLemore on the EQ2 Forums:

Yesterday we experienced unforeseen technical issues related to an upgrade to one of our internal services. Those complex changes caused issues with logins and required that we take down our servers. We pushed a fix last night and are monitoring the servers closely to verify the fix and ensure its stability.

If you experience unexpected behavior with logins today, please post in this thread.

As we monitor the results of this fix, we may determine it needs time to “bake” further before we make any significant updates. This might impact the release timing of GU103. We will post separately if the GU release date needs to be pushed out to ensure we have healthy, happy servers.

We’d like to apologize for the extended downtime yesterday and thank all of you for bearing with us and for continuing to be a part of our community.

Downtime is unknown.

I’d heard some of this information from the Discord chat but I’ve been asked not to repost said information here until it’s official. So, here’s the official thingy from the EQ2 Forums:

ASCENSION
Members now receive five bonus Guided Ascension scrolls per week from the Ascension masters. When these bonus scrolls are claimed you will be not be able to receive any more bonus scrolls for six days and 20 hours.
Ascension Masters will now continue to grant Guided Ascension scrolls until all four Ascension classes are level 10. You are still limited to one scroll per day.

EXPERT ZONES
Expert zones are more challenging versions of all current Kunark Ascending heroic zones, as well as the tier one, two, and three raid encounters in the Crypt of Dalnir: The Kly Stronghold and Arcanna’se Spire: Order and Chaos raid zones. Expert zone encounters drop more powerful items. All current heroic missions will update within the appropriate expert zones and grant an extra reward if completed utilizing an expert zone.

Speak to Prissaia <Expert Dungeon Portal Summoner> within Crusaders’ Cave in Obulus Frontier to venture to these new instances.
