Double Extra Loot Week

Written by Feldon on . Posted in EQ2, Grouping, Itemization

From an announcement entitled “Double Loot Week!” on the EQ2 Forums:

If you haven’t doubled on your Ascension scrolls and experience, today is your final opportunity!

More importantly however, tomorrow the bonuses continue with double loot in all Kunark Ascending dungeon and raid instances!

Starting at 12 AM PT (07:00 UTC) June 16th, until June 23rd at 12 AM (7:00 UTC) players will receive double loot from the following:

  • Kunark Ascending Solo Instance Bosses (final encounter)
  • Kunark Ascending Heroic Instance Bosses (final encounter)
  • All Raid bosses

Time to get your crew together and run some dungeons!

Players asked in the popular Discord chat for clarification of whether this was truly double loot or an increased chance of double loot and whether it was going to work the same as it did last year or if there had been some changes. Apparently that was a mistake…

gu103-livestream

Coinciding with today’s launch of Game Update 103, Kyle “Kander” Vallee, Tony “RadarX” Jones, and Chris “Chrol” Garlick held a livestream on Facebook to walk through some of what players can experience in the update going live today. This is not an exact transcription of the livestream but a rough outline. The Livestream, which requires a Facebook account, can be viewed here.

Proving Grounds

We’re now seeing a demo of the new Proving Grounds which takes place in an instance of New Tunaria. As with the Battlegrounds server, characters are copied to the Proving Grounds server and participate in a group event which takes about 30 minutes depending on players’ knowledge of the boss strategy. You and the opposing group do not directly interact, but you can do things that affect the other group.

  • 1 zone to start, Battle of Felwithe
  • 1 zone to be added later (Pirate ship themed)
  • Gear is equalized, should be able to “Jump in and play” as a level 100. Skill-based.
  • Cross-server. Group up and compete across server! Editor’s Note: Proving Grounds works like Battlegrounds — characters are copied there and must wait for events to start to participate.
  • Will take around 30m-1hr to complete
  • Timed group challenge, you compete against another group. You can see the other group’s progress but you can’t interact.
  • Earn token currency, receive double if you’re a member.
  • Each boss kill earns a token, last boss is 2 tokens, 3 tokens for winning (double for members)
  • Proving ground lobby is old Battleground lobby. Merchants available for gear purchases with earned tokens.
  • Upgraded white (wantia) adorns will be available.
  • New orange slotted gear (ring, pants, and more)
  • Proving Ground teleporters are in your home city.
  • Missions are available, including a weekly mission for familiar crates.
