Fabled Nizara Metacollection Reward Will Get Buffed

Written by Feldon on . Posted in EQ2, Itemization

The reward for completing all the collections in Game Update 101′s Fabled Nizara has received a less than enthusiastic response from players.  The item, Misstress Zhvari’s Sash of Station, has rather low stats given the difficulty of acquiring it.

In the new EQ2 Discord chat which was opened yesterday, Kander had this response:

we’ll have it fixed next update. It should have 10 fervor and we upped the resolve and some other stuff, and now they are Fabled.

RadarX: Current Time-Locked Expansion and Race-to-Trakanon Itemization Won’t Be Fixed

Written by Feldon on . Posted in EQ2, Grouping, Itemization, Raiding, TLE/Prestige Servers

90hours

Players on the subscription-required Race to Trakanon and Stormhold (Time Locked Expansion) servers have been requesting changes to itemization which would bring Heroic and Raid gear (specifically the iconic Mythical weapons that conclude the Kunark storyline) above the level of Solo and Crafted gear. We got an answer of sorts on that question today from RadarX on the EQ2 Forums:

You are taking a few liberties with this statement but to reiterate Kanders post and to ensure there aren’t concerns this hasn’t at least been communicated, there are no plans to do further itemization on current content. As with each expansion the team will work on what they feel is the most important and impacting gear but a complete overhaul is unfeasible.

While we can appreciate the concern and passion, but our next itemization focus will be on the next expansion.

Acquiring Mythical weapons and the defeat of Trakanon on the Race to Trakanon server seems designed to dovetail into this EverQuest II’s thirteenth expansion – Kunark Ascending — expected this November — which is rumored to include an Epic Weapon 2.0 questline.

Wave Three of Summer Ethereals Have Begun

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

ethereal_summer2016-merchant-wave2

As of midnight, it appears that Wave Three of Summer Ethereals have begun. As we wrote about earlier this year, rather than weapons, the new Ethereals are Jewelry and Charms, and in this case, a Cloak ( Bonecaster’s Mantle ).

A player brought the rollover to our attention. While the new cloak offers a 15% damage reduction from elemental, arcane, and noxious damage, as well as +10.5 Fervor, it oddly includes a Daze effect. Disabling autoattack for an entire minute of combat seems like a non starter.

Wave Three of Summer Ethereals — Coming Later This Month

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

The @EverQuestII twitter account posted this news last night:

The final set of summer Ethereals is now available so earn them while you can!

However we’ve now confirmed that we’re still in the midst of Wave 2 of Ethereals and that Wave 3 won’t start until later this month. From Caith on the EQ2 Forums:

The second wave still has a few weeks in it, wave 2 ends and wave 3 begins later this month.

False alarm folks! Wave 2 started on July 15th and I believe each wave is supposed to last at least a month.

Beta Test: Game Update 101 — Public Quests, Level Agnostic to 100, and Fabled Mara!

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

EQ2-logo-Fallen-Dynasty

The EverQuest II team are working full steam ahead on the thirteenth expansion due to hit this November, but in the meantime, they’re getting ready to drop a whopper of a Game Update which should keep us plenty busy this summer.

First up, the much beloved Public Quests first introduced in Destiny of Velious are making a return in current tier content. The EQ2 team have been given new tools to create PQs in weeks instead of months. In addition to faster development, the new tools promise to exhibit less server and client lag as the battles are underway. Game Update 101 will bring us more level 100 content in the form of Fabled Zones from the The Fallen Dynasty adventure pack. Nizara returns in Advanced Solo and Heroic versions, while x2 and x4 raids have both been added.

Five new Level Agnostic Dungeons have been added to Dungeon Finder and they can be played by characters from level 10-100 with content scaling appropriately. Finally some quality-of-life tweaks have been made, and healers who cast Wards will want to check out some changes to how these mechanics have changed.

Read the Beta Update Notes for August 3rd
Please note that the Game Update 101 Beta Test is currently invitation-only. You can try out GU101 on the Test server, but there is no character copy capability.

  • Corrected an issue that prevented the first 10 players to obtain each class epic from receiving the Greater Undying Power adornment pack claim. This fix was retroactive.

CENSUS

  • Added ts_level and ts_class to the type field in census character export data. This is in addition to existing information as to avoid causing any issues with older census websites.*

* The way Tradeskill Class and Level were exported on characters made it almost impossible to do searches for all characters over a certain tradeskill level. Nine queries were necessary. This update will change this to only require one query.

Wave Two of Summer Ethereals Begin

Written by Feldon on . Posted in EQ2, Itemization, Live Events

ethereal_summer2016-merchant-wave2

As of midnight, it appears that Wave Two of Summer Ethereals have begun! As we wrote about earlier this year, rather than weapons, the new Ethereals are Jewelry and Charms. Here’s a post from two weeks ago giving today’s date from Kander:

Wave two starts July 15th. Yes, each wave drops a different item.

We will be doing double Ethereal tokens here some time in future also.

When asked if we’d still be able to buy Wave One items after Wave Two starts, he answered in the affirmative (quoted for posterity):

Yes,

With an overnight change in the items available on the in-game vendor, players have noticed that one new charm has been added — Bonecaster’s Mettle. It is oddly marked FABLED instead of ETHEREAL but can still be resold to the vendor for 15 Ethereal Coins. You’ll note that the existing three pieces of jewelry and three Ethereal Rune adornments (which vary based on your class) remain:

ethereal_summer2016-item-wave2

UPDATE: It looks like this was a glitch as players are once again receiving just one Ethereal reward for completing the daily Ethereal mission.

Interestingly, players have been reporting receiving two rewards instead of one since last night. Some were hoping there would be a Double Coin event, but instead it looks like we’re getting a Double Reward event. Unlike past Ethereal events, this summer’s Summer Ethereals are tied to completing a specific Mission (quest) for a daily zone. The rotation can be viewed in the right column of EQ2 Library.

Summer 2016 Ethereals Begins! — Double Ethereal Coins June 7th – June 13th

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

We already posted an article about them, but here’s the official announcement.

From EQ2 Brand Manager Roshen on the EQ2 Forums:

ethereal_summer2016-merchant

Summer Ethereal Items are here!

During the event players will be able to pick up Ethereal missions from the mission NPC’s in Thalumbra, the Ever Deep. These missions will grant you [eq2u]Umbrite Ethereal Coin[/eq2u]s, and a chance at the current accessory reward or an Ethereal Rune. Umbrite Ethereal Coins may be used to purchase any of the available rewards from the Lylleia, the Ethereal Merchant.

In addition, over the course of the event there will be several periods of time that award bonus Ethereal Coins. Starting TODAY and running until 11:59PM PT on Monday, June 13, 2016 players will receive DOUBLE Ethereal Coins. Don’t miss your chance to stock up on coins early, and pick up the Ethereal items that you’re looking for!

This is in addition to the bonus that All Access members get every day to their alternative currency earned in-game. That means double DOUBLE Ethereal Coins for members during the times for bonus Ethereal Coins.

Summer Ethereals Start Tomorrow, June 7, 2016

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

With tomorrow’s update, the Summer Ethereals event goes live for 2016.

In the past, I have come to view these events a mixture of excitement and dread. Yes, it becomes easier to find groups, however you have to be lottery-lucky to acquire these game-changing items as [eq2u]Phelony, Deathbringer[/eq2u], [eq2u]Fai Thass, The Ravager[/eq2u], and ability resetting items such as Essence of Duality. With the focus on weapons shifted to later this year, the Summer Ethereals this time around are jewelry — Necklaces, Bracelets, and Earrings. In addition, some of the very popular but exceedingly rare Ethereal Runes are now also available through heroic content this summer.

ethereal_summer2016  ethereal_summer2016-item

A view of the Ethereal merchant as seen by a Mage. Different items are offered for Scouts, Fighters, and Priests.

RNGQuest

In years past, the only way to acquire these Ethereal items was through repetition. It might take 300 or more dungeon runs to acquire your preferred item. This year, the rewards are presented in such a way that you will either get an [eq2u]Umbrite Ethereal Coin[/eq2u], which can be used to buy Ethereals from a merchant, or you will get an Ethereal item. Please note that the Ethereal Coin currency is NO-TRADE which is necessary to keep the cost low.
