First, on Tuesday, May 2nd we are launching the first of our Level 100 Co-opetition Challenges in the Proving Grounds! What the heck is “co-opetition”? Well…Cooperative Competition, of course!

In teams, you can compete side-by-side with other groups – and even sabotage their progress – as you mow through baddies so you can win! Why win? For new loot and bragging rights! We will start with one Co-opetition Challenge and switch it out with a new match type or layout periodically. Woot!

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.

Commentary: Are Epic 2.0 Quests Burying Players in Prerequisites?

Written by Feldon on . Posted in EQ2, Itemization

buried_alive_kill_bill

The original Epic Weapon quests introduced in 2009 were crafted by 18 designers working on nothing else for 3 months. All 24 quests required the completion of prior Heritage quests, befriending various Factions, and a fair share of “filler” content. It was expected, or certainly anticipated that the Epic Weapon 2.0 Quests would have similar prerequisites. However nothing could have prepared increasingly jaded players for the mountain of homework which has dropped into their laps as the curtain has been pulled back on Epic 2.0.

Only two characters have reached Ascension Level 8 at publication time, so we have yet to glimpse Parts 4 and 5 of these quests, yet even lifelong EQ2 fans are already begging for mercy. With the vague dialogue and inscrutable clues that only make sense in hindsight, players are at their wit’s end hailing NPCs by the thousands in a scattershot zone-by-zone grid search to figure out where to go next.

Update Notes: Thursday January 5, 2016 — No Longer Hammer Time

The downtime ran an additional hour and there was a tweet advising us about it.

A bunch of Update Notes, but the one you’ll probably be hearing the most about appears, at first glance, to rein in the incredible power of items such as Ethereal Onslaught, Ethereal ConduitIre-Dread (the hammer), Spine of Ancient Terror, Spine of the Deep One, which can Reset the Reuse of some or all of a character’s abilities sometimes several times a minute. This effect has been the subject of much debate on the forums for the last year and a half.

From the EQ2 Forums:

GENERAL

  • Added Resolve as a searchable stat on the broker.
  • Fixed a bug where switching your warder in the warder UI would not update the abilities displayed.
  • Fixed an issue where tool-tip information would not display correctly on some Deity abilities above rank 12.

POPULATION / ZONE PROGRESSION

  • Adds for Captain Vhankmin and Tabor’Zaai should now despawn when the encounter is defeated.

We’re happy to report that Ablivion’s invaluable EQ2Library site has received some updates for the new Kunark Ascending expansion. For the past few expansions, his site has contained detailed strategies for Heroic zones, Gear recommendations, selected Loot information for popular zones, and more. For Kunark Ascending, he’s already started working on documenting the Overland Achievements, Collections, Timed Treasure Hunt quests, the Ascension system, Tradeskills, Consumables, Merc Gear & Leveling, Adornments, and much much more.

Kunark Ascending Sig Quest Reward Flagged “NO ZONE”, Ascension Scrolls Halved

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

funny-dog-train-scarf-walk-surprise2

With this morning’s patch, one of the two powerful new level 100 Greenmist weapons rewarded for completing the Kunark Ascending Signature Quest was accidentally flagged NO-ZONE:

As a result, players are losing the weapon as well as impossible-to-replace Ethereal adornments earned over this summer’s Ethereal event. Take heart though — According to Gninja in the Discord chat, this was not intended and will be fixed ASAP:

We will get you your lost greenmists back and adornments. We have logs of all that stuff. Caith is taking care of it as quickly as he can.

Ascension XP

Meanwhile, players who have been stockpiling Ascension XP scrolls — waiting for bugs to be fixed in the current Ascension XP system — got a surprise this morning. Stockpiled scrolls had their XP capacity cut in half from 1 million XP to 500k XP. Overall the new Ascension system rolled out today seems to be a winner, as it is a hybrid of daily scrolls (which now hold up to 500k; 600k if you are All Access) and a Vitality-like system which works out to 480k per day (20k per hour). Do the math and a fastidious player can now earn 1,080,000 Ascension XP per day, slightly more than before.

The problem is all those  people who had been stockpiling Ascension XP scrolls. If you saved 12 scrolls up to this point, they just dropped in value from 12 million Ascension XP to 6 million. The 4 bonus scrolls granted in today’s update don’t really make up for that shortfall. It’s puzzling as to why the existing scrolls weren’t left alone while new scrolls were added.

NOTE: The original 1 million Ascension XP scrolls are going to be reverted and new 500k scrolls are being added to the merchants.
