ZAM @ E3: EverQuest & EverQuest II Progression Servers

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

ZAM’s outgoing Managing Editor Cyliena checked in with Holly “Windstalker” Longdale at E3 with questions about Progression servers in EverQuest and EverQuest II. From EQ2 ZAM:

E3 doesn’t stop when its doors are closed for the day. We snagged Executive Producer Holly Longdale at this year’s Daybreak after-party (and again this week in a follow-up), chatting about some recent changes that hit EverQuest‘s progression servers as well as the upcoming progression servers and merges for EverQuest II.

With EverQuest II, the upcoming progression servers will be a first for the game. In-game voting for time-locked and marketplace options has already come and gone, and for a short time players can still get their votes in on server names. For those not familiar with what a time-locked progression server is, Kander has posted a thorough FAQ on the forums.

A Few Workarounds to Get EQ2 Running on Windows XP

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

windowsxp_endoflife

Despite going end-of-life on April 8, 2014 and no longer receiving crucial security updates, Windows XP continues to serve the computers of a surprising number of EverQuest II players a decade after its introduction. The reasons for running such an old operating system seem to center on inertia (the horror of locating and reinstalling all of one’s software) and budget. Windows 7 is not exactly a free upgrade, and Microsoft has never offered a direct XP -> 7 upgrade path. Also, Windows Driver Model, introduced with Vista and carried forth in 7, 8, and 10, has left behind a mountain of older hardware that will never sport Windows 7-compatible drivers. For those EQ2 players on a fixed income, a $300 expenditure for a new or upgraded computer and Windows 7 license can be difficult to justify.

Last Tuesday’s update brought us Fabled versions of dungeons and raid zones hearkening back to the Echoes of Faydwer expansion. It also brought an unexpected change that is making it difficult for certain Windows XP users to login to EverQuest II. This is a situation that is frustrating for both players and developers. Players want to login to EQ2 without making changes to their computers. Meanwhile the EQ2 team has to spend extra time investigating and debugging game client crashes in Windows XP — time they could spend working on other things.

After the jump, some player-reported temporary workarounds to get EQ2 running on Windows XP…

Kander’s Candor – Fabled Echoes of Faydwer and More!

From EverQuest II Lead Designer Kyle “Kander“ Vallée on the EQ2 Forums:

Greetings Fellow Norrathians!

Just stopping in to give everyone the low down on the new Fabled Echoes of Faydwer zones we will be releasing today.

fabled_eof_1

People are asking what zones will become Fabled and what play styles will be covered. The answer is we tried to cover as many as possible with this release. We have 3 Fabled Echoes of Faydwer heroic zones: The Acadechism, The Court of Innovation and the Crypt of Valdoon. We also decided to make an advanced solo version of each of these zones for our solo players and are releasing the Fabled Freethinker Hideout raid zone in two flavors, Normal and Challenge.

  • The Fabled Acadechism [Heroic]
  • The Fabled Acadechism [Advanced Solo]
  • The Fabled Court of Innovation [Heroic]
  • The Fabled Court of Innovation [Advanced Solo]
  • The Fabled Crypt of Valdoon [Heroic]
  • The Fabled Crypt of Valdoon [Advanced Solo]
  • The Fabled Freethinker Hideout [Raid]

Update Notes: Tuesday, June 23, 2015 – Fabled Echoes of Faydwer and Un-Deleting Items & Characters

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

Downtime Notice

US EverQuest II Live Servers will be brought offline on Tuesday, June 23, 2015 at 7:00AM PDT* for an update. Estimated downtime is approximately two hours.

EU EverQuest II Live Servers will be brought offline on Tuesday, June 23, 2015 at 7:00AM PDT* for an update. (Approx. 3:00PM London Time on June 23, 2015). Estimated downtime is two hours.

Echoes of Faydwer Fabled (Level 100)

That was fast! After a week on the Beta and Test servers, the Echoes of Faydwer Fabled solo and group dungeons plus a raid zone are patching live tomorrow, providing new content for level 100 players. These new zones also drop this summer’s Ethereal weapons which are on a 30-day rotation as previously mentioned.

Un-Deleting Characters and Items

For the first 15 years of its history, SOE has been known for its exemplary customer service which included the extraordinary safety net of recovering deleted and transmuted items as well as deleted characters (sometimes due to hacked accounts). In the aftermath of recent changes within the company in its transition to Daybreak Games, we’ve seen petition times jump to 3-6 days, and cutbacks on what support events are covered, particularly on deleted characters. It’s our understanding that restoring a hacked account can take several hours of painstaking reconstruction and digging through log files.

With tomorrow’s update, players who mistakenly Delete an Item or Character will now be able to restore them for Daybreak Cash. Player opinion has been rancorous and divided on this issue. On one side, players are castigated for their carelessness with the delete button or use of weak passwords, while others are quick to remind us EverQuest II is not a free game and most pay a monthly subscription, plus Campaigns and/or Expansions and surely there is enough room under that umbrella for this safety net.

Fabled Echoes of Faydwer instances now on Test and Beta!

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

echoes_of_faydwer

As posted by Chrol on the EQ2 Forums on Tuesday, June 16th:

Hey all,

The following instances from Echoes of Faydwer (expansion 3) are now available on Test and Beta servers as Fabled level 100 versions:

  • The Fabled Acadechism [Advanced Solo & Heroic]
  • The Fabled Court of Innovation [Advanced Solo & Heroic]
  • The Fabled Crypt of Valdoon [Advanced Solo & Heroic]
  • The Fabled Freethinker Hideout [Raid & Challenge Raid]

You’ll find the entrance to these dungeons (a door!) just off the dock in Butcherblock Mountains at approximately 724, 24, 581. They can also be accessed individually through their original entrance locations within Greater Faydark, Klak’Anon, and Loping Plains.

There are a ton of new items, collections, missions and challenges so give them a whirl and please reply here with any and all feedback and bugs.

Thanks!

PvE and PvP Time-Locked Expansion Server FAQ (June 16)

Written by Feldon on . Posted in EQ2, Game Updates & Maintenance, Grouping, PvP/Battlegrounds

time_locked_expansion_server_BTTF3

Next month, we’ll see two new Beta servers open to test PvP and PvE Time-Locked Expansion (TLE) Servers. While we’ve already been informed on several occasions that restoring the EQ2 codebase back to a launch or near-launch state would be nearly impossible, but the EQ2 team want to offer players some of the “uphill both ways in the snow“ experience that early EQ2 adventurers encountered. So the team are developing Time-Locked Expansion Servers which will be a sort of hybrid of some of the modern conveniences we have now, but with certain design decisions reverted or changed to provide more challenge and social interaction.

To decide what restrictions should apply to these new challenge servers, the EQ2 team have already been seeking feedback from players in discussion threads on the forums. This feedback is already shaping what we’ll see in Beta, which will then further shape the final form these servers take when they launch later this year. We’ve been told to expect several in-game and on-forum Polls for players to vote on which features they think should be removed outright, time-locked, or freely allowed. To sketch out some of the team’s current subject-to-change ideas for how these TLE servers will differ from what we see on Live servers, Kander has posted TLE FAQ dated June 16th on the EQ2 Forums.

Greetings Fellow Norrathians!

We wanted to make a post this week and give you a glimpse of what we are planning for our Time-Locked Expansion Servers and what you can expect to see here in the very near future.

Our current plan is to launch 2 new TLE Servers, a PvE and a PvP version. Both of these servers will have back up servers in case we need them. I am going to go over the current iteration of how they will be launching and what our plans are with them, and also list what we are considering, which we will give you, our player base, a chance to vote on with in-game polls. More on that later.

What can we expect to be in place with the launch of the Time-Locked Expansion servers?

Producer’s Letter: Server Merges Coming After TLE Servers

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

servermergeimage

From Holly “Windstalker” Longdale on the EQ2 Forums:

Greetings Norrath!

I want to address questions around concerns with lower-population servers. First, as a community-focused team, we’re listening to feedback and we want to tackle population health issues on some servers.

After we launch the two new Time-Locked Expansion (TLE) servers, we will proceed with creating a merge process for the US servers that need it most. We hope to start doing merges within the next few months. We’ll give you specific dates as we get closer. This is very challenging work that will branch off from our Cross-Server Dungeon work. Luckily, what we plan to do for true Cross-Server Dungeons & Battlegrounds logically helps us merge characters to new servers. We’ve already had our incredible coders working on the foundation of cross-server processes for a few months already. Our database changes earlier this year were the first step.

Once we’ve addressed server populations for the US, we are going to work on some options for our international servers which is an even bigger challenge given the multiple languages, but we’ll be sharing news on that as we get closer.

What does this mean for you and our plans for the year? We are working in writing a merge process ahead of creating Cross-Server Dungeons. This effort will delay that somewhat, but it’s still on our calendar for this year along with the campaign content release and live content.

We want to do the work that is needed to ensure a rewarding and fun stay in Norrath.

Sincerely, as always,

Holly “Windstalker” Longdale

Time-Locked PvP and PvE Beta Servers Coming in Early July

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

spellbook

With the success of EverQuest’s recently launched Ragefire progression server, the idea of something similar in EverQuest II seems to have magically gone from “probably not” and “extremely unlikely” to “We’re doing it!” Perhaps it’s just a coincidence, but last week, EQ/EQ2 Executive Producer Holly “Windstalker” Longdale surprised the hell out of everyone by announcing that PvP and PvE Time-Locked Expansion Beta servers (Yes that’s plural!) were coming to EverQuest II.

How soon you might ask Kander?

Sooner than you think. /wink

Ok really… How soon?

Its coming sooner than you think. Announcements are being trained to zone…

Holly “Windstalker” Longdale unpackaged the feline on Twitter.

Happy day!! We're preparing TWO Time-Locked Expansion Beta servers for #EQ2 in early July — one for PVE and one for PVP! Details soon ™!

Guys, there is an issue with the Ethereal weapons. Yes, they are dropping but no, its not correctly. This should be correctly dropping tomorrow morning.

and from Holly “Windstalker” Longdale‘s twitter:

Thus addressing the concern that of the four Ethereal weapons added on Friday, only [eq2u]Fai Thass, The Ravager[/eq2u] has dropped, and only for 2 players on Oasis. You can watch Recent Item Discoveries on EQ2U, specifically Ethereals for the last 30 days, to see them roll in.

Producer’s Letter: New Fabled, Ethereal Items, PvE & PvP Time-Locked Progression Servers, and More!

Written by Feldon on . Posted in EQ2, Expansion News, Game Updates & Maintenance, PvP/Battlegrounds

From EQ and EQ2 Executive Producer Holly “Windstalker” Longdale on the EQ2 Forums:

What’s Up for EQII?

We have a lot in store for our intrepid Everquest II players. We’re excited to be discussing the launch of two new Time-Locked Expansion Servers for PvE and PvP sometime this year.

Along with that, the team is moving forward with a strategy of treating our players as real gamers who don’t need to be handheld for everything they do. What this means is we feel we need to trust our players to learn and achieve things without us having to give you all the information ahead of time. There’s a big difference between “head southwest and uncover the mystery of the green fog” and “go find the green fog that I put on your map for you.” Our players are smart and we want EQII to be a thinker’s and strategist’s game.

Today we release a new Rumrunner home with a décor set for our decorators, a store version of the Zeppelin mount for anyone that likes to float about in style, and new Summer Ethereal items will start dropping in Altar of Malice heroic zones (including Rum Cellar) for our adventurers.

We’re also currently testing Character Restore and Item Restore functionality on Beta which we hope to release soon.

On Tuesday, June 23, we will release Echoes of Faydwer Fabled Dungeons with all new updated loot and fun for level 100. There are 3 heroic dungeons, 3 advanced solos and 1 raid with a challenge version. Here’s the zone list:

· The Fabled Acadechism [Heroic & Advanced Solo]
· The Fabled Court of Innovation [Heroic & Advanced Solo]
· The Fabled Crypt of Valdoon [Heroic & Advanced Solo]
· The Fabled Freethinker Hideout [Raid & Challenge Raid]

Then, in early July, we’ll introduce the ability to quest and worship Erollisi as a god for new miracles and blessings.

We can’t forget Tinkerfest! It will launch on July 17 with new content!

And later in the summer, we’ll see more Ethereal weapon drops.

For those who are curious, we’re doing a fair amount of technical and backend work to help our performance and to move toward cross-server functionality. We also want to address server population issues. We’re focusing on the first part of this work which is adjusting our architecture.

We also have been continuing to work on the content for our release later this year. Toward the end of summer as we head into the Campaign release timeframe later this year, we’ll be releasing some prequel events and designers will be sharing details about upcoming features with you. Today in our Twitch stream, designers previewed an upcoming feature that allows you to increase stats on new equipment. We also have a new item type in the works for this year’s campaign referred to as Relics which are extremely powerful items where only one can be equipped at a time, per character. Kander, Caith, and Kaitheel (yikes!) discussed these features in our livestream today and you can watch the replay here.

We’re enormously grateful for the support of all of our players and we’re excited about what’s coming up for EverQuest II!

Sincerely, as always,

June 4th, 2015 Livestream Notes — EoF Fabled Zones June 23rd, Summer Ethereals, Campansion 12 Info!

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

Today Robert “Caith” Fouts, Nathan “Kaitheel” McCall, and Kyle “Kander” Vallee were joined by EQ2 Community Manager Ry “Roshen” Schuller to talk about upcoming changes in this fall’s expansion-sized Campaign, or as the EQ2 team has been calling — the Campansion. Here are my rough notes, subject to my interpretation and these are mostly not direct quotes. Any mistakes are my own!

Amplifying

Players have be able to upgrade armor through Gems and adding Essences to change the Damage type on Weapons. However this has been very limited as it requires the devs to create hundreds of items for each boost/change. A new feature is coming with this fall’s Campansion #12 (Expansion-sized Campaign) called Amplifying  which will allow items to be customized and upgraded on a more detailed level. Not all items in the game will be upgradeable, as this will be limited to items in the expansion and perhaps a few AoM/RC items. For example, you might get a bauble from a zone that allows you to boost stats or add a totally new stat to an item. You will be able to change the Weapon Delay (1, 2, 4, 6, 8) and Damage Type (Mental, Fire, Noxious) on Weapons.

20150604-livestream-amplifying

current prototype of Amplifying

Amplifying requires a dropped material (which could be rare) to boost an item. We’re not sure what it costs just to change the stats, delay, or damage type on an item. The prototype shown just costs plat, but the finalized version will use a material. This will work alongside but not replace Reforging which will largely remain in its current form. The plan is to have a longer expansion Beta test this year so that more feedback can be collected on this feature.
