Level Up in Level Agnostic Dungeons

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

Amongst a few other fixes, today’s update largely focuses on Level Agnostic Dungeons. While at least one confused poster thought that LADs were supposed to present a “challenge” for a stacked group, in fact LADs are specifically designed to address the lack of grouping in low levels by allowing low and high level characters to group together on somewhat of an even playing field. Stats are brought up or down as needed so that a level 20 healer can keep a level 94 tank alive. As part of today’s update, Afista has posted a featured article on the subject:

LevelAgnosticDungeons

We’re happy to announce that the update on February 3, 2015 will increase the maximum level for Agnostic Dungeons to level 94! These zones have been adjusted so that you can group with any of your friends between levels 20 and 94, regardless of your difference in level. We’ve also made some adjustments to make sure these dungeons are fun at any level! Looking for some new rewards? We’ve got those too. Make sure you check out the level 90 equipment that will help you gear up during your adventures! So where should you head to check out these update?
There are currently five Agnostic Dungeons in the world, ready to explore. We also plan to add more dungeons to the system later this year! Here’s a closer look at each of the five, currently available dungeons:

English Update Notes are here:

LEVEL AGNOSTIC DUNGEONS
General

  • Maximum Level for Agnostic Dungeons has been increased to level 94, with a new set of level 90 equipment.
  • Lower level player damage has been rebalanced to bring it closer to higher levels on a per-ability basis.
  • Many creatures have given up the life of playing an underappreciated utility class, resulting in less crowd control effects and debilitating debuffs (particularly to lower level characters).
  • In general, groupwide detrimentals have been toned down to make things friendlier for lower level players.
  • Mercenaries and pets will now benefit from the out of combat power regen effect granted by the Agnostic Playing Field buff.
  • Rare spawn named mobs found in certain dungeons will no longer cast Mandate.

SOE Wasting No Time Rebranding as Daybreak Games

Written by Feldon on . Posted in Commentary

On one hand, SOE is wasting no time rebranding themselves as Daybreak Games. They’ve already renamed a number of Twitter accounts and their general forums. On the other hand, the company does not yet have a new logo design, as otherwise I’d have shared it with you. That’s not stopping maintenance from taking down an SOE sign that I stood in front of just 6 months ago…

sony_online_entertainment_sign

SOE Daybreak Games president John Smedley took to twitter to provide some answers to the most common requests he’s been getting by e-mail:

answering a few questions people have emailed me

1) All our games are still up and will continue to be despite our new name.

2) Yes, we want to bring our games to Xbox One in addition to PS4.

3) Station Cash doesn’t change at all (though we will be rebranding it soon here).

4) We’re still making Everquest Next :) nothing has changed.

Breaking: SOE Live “On Hiatus” — No Convention for 2015

Breaking! SOE Acquired by Columbus Nova, to become Daybreak Game Company

Written by Feldon on . Posted in Game Updates & Maintenance

columbusnova

The announcement has been posted on all game forums including the EverQuest II forums and H1Z1′s Reddit:

Dear Players, Partners and Friends,

Today, we are pleased to announce that we have been acquired by Columbus Nova, an investment management firm well known for its success with its existing portfolio of technology, media and entertainment focused companies. This means that effective immediately SOE will operate as an independent game development studio where we will continue to focus on creating exceptional online games for players around the world, and now as a multi-platform gaming company. Yes, that means PlayStation and Xbox, mobile and more!

As part of this transition, SOE will now become Daybreak Game Company. This name embodies who we are as an organization, and is a nod to the passion and dedication of our employees and players. It is also representative of our vision to approach each new day as an opportunity to move gaming forward.

So what exactly does this mean for you? It will be business as usual and all SOE games will continue on their current path of development and operation. In fact, we expect to have even more resources available to us as a result of this acquisition. It also means new exciting developments for our existing IP and games as we can now fully embrace the multi-platform world we are living in.

Our games and players are the heart and soul of our organization, and we are committed to maintaining our portfolio of online games and pushing the limits of where we can take online gaming together.

Thank you for your continued support. See you in game!

More 4 Second Weapons Coming in February

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

capt-caveman

There’s a certain logic in most of the scout weapons coming from a land of Dinosaurs, Pterodactyls, and tar pits being clubs. However less-than-enthused players have been looking daggers at the EQ2 team and pointedly commenting about how there just aren’t enough piercing weapons to go around. Worse, the few piercing weapons  available to scouts have stats like Ability Recovery Speed and Reuse Speed which scouts acquire in spades from other item slots. A quick look at Item Discoveries of scout-usable weapons on EQ2U bears out our concerns.

Fortunately, the EQ2 team intend to deliver an update in February that should solve this shortcoming. Kander advises that the weapons will drop and have the correct scoutish stats!

We have an update coming in February that will be adding a large amount of weapons. Should be quite a few 4 second piercing weapons. I won’t give away the details quite yet, but help is coming.

We’ll make sure they have the proper stats.

I will check the batch for Brawler/Beastlord weapons. Especially some 4 second delays.

and in response to Errrorr‘s request for bows which beat Tears of Veeshan’s archery choices:

They will drop.

Late update from Kander:

We have 60+ assorted fabled weapons coming to live in a couple weeks. We are going through them now to make sure there is stuff for everyone. These will most likely also drop as patterns, so you will be able to choose your poison. Yes. Pun intended.

EQ2 International Forums Gone But Not Forgotten

Written by Feldon on . Posted in EQ2, International (Pro7Sat1)

international-graphic

SOE’s on-again-off-again with it’s international community seems to be on the skids again, at least as far as for EverQuest II customers. After 2012′s disastrous forced migration of its French, German, and other European customers to ProSiebenSat.1/Alaplaya, it was an open question how many players would come back.

After two years of drama, SOE relented and brought its remaining European customers back into the fold. SOE resurrected EQ2 support forums in French, German, and Spanish and hired staff to maintain them. However it seems the damage had been done and the daily traffic was insufficient to continue translating notes and monitoring the forums in four languages.  Late Wednesday night, it was announced on the French, German, and Spanish forums that they were being shut down just 48 hours later (today).

I would have missed this news entirely had a player not brought it to my attention that the forums were being shuttered. So I leaped into action and spent all day today harvesting this forum data and adding  it into our growing EQ2Wire Forum Archives. I finished just in time as moments later, the international forums were hidden from direct access, the first step in their eventual permanent removal.

Are you missing some of EverQuest II’s history and lore?

EQ2Wire has salvaged over 211,000 discussions with over 2.3 million posts in English, French, German, Spanish, and Japanese, including the Chains of Eternity and Altar of Malice betas. Why? Because we try harder!

Massively Shutdown is Official — End of an Era

Written by Feldon on . Posted in Commentary

twinsuns

Massively‘s Editor-in-Chief Brianna Royce has posted an extremely candid response about the closure of Massively after 10 years in operation, and despite 40% growth in readership last year. The number of sites that critically review MMORPGs in an unbiased way could already be counted on one hand and now we’ve lost the biggest and the best. It’s the end of an institution as they say, and once again AOL, the company that shouldn’t even exist anymore, continues to be a cancer on the internet community, destroying everything in its path.

I have sad news for the Massively staff and community today, news most of you already knew was coming.

This week, we learned our AOL overlords have decided that they no longer wish to be in the enthusiast blog business and are shutting all of them down. This mass-sunset includes decade-old gaming journalism icon Joystiq, and therefore, it includes us. February 3rd, 2015, will be the final day of operation for Massively-that-was.

I would like to be able to tell you truthfully that this is an equitable and just decision that makes some sort of logical sense, but the reality is that our overlords’ decisions have always been unfathomable. I know more of what I know about corporate from reading tech and finance news than through my own job. We all suspected this was coming eventually a year ago when a VP whose name I don’t even know and who never read our site chose to reward our staggering, hard-won 40% year-over-year page view growth by… hacking our budget in half. There’s nothing to do in the face of that kind of logic but throw your hands in the air. It’s not about merit or lack thereof, and it’s not about journalism or gaming being dead or anything grand like that, so there’s no point in taking it personally.

Aerakyn Cosplay Video with Strawburry17, Windstalker, TTobey, and Phatkins

Flying Duck Mount Dead in the Water?

When you’ve got one Animator and one Character Artist for a game the size of EverQuest II, development time is ever-precious. Most of Tom and Chris’ efforts go towards the annual Expansion, plus the creation of a few StationCash mounts per year. It’s just the nature of the beast that their time for fun projects is limited. It doesn’t help that not everyone was a fan of the less serious, frivolous, or “silly” mounts which push the limits of a medieval setting.

But the party might be over. After 43 pages of hilarity from Errrorr‘s “The Official Duck Mount Request thread“, the topic was abruptly closed this morning. The writing was on the wall as early as last Thursday as Tom Tobey tweeted the sad news:

Currently on Test is the popular Erollisi Day event, as well as an upgrade for the popular Level Agnostic Dungeons.

As for Level Agnostic Dungeons, which have quickly become an enjoyable and rewarding way to gain levels between 20 and 89 in between solo questing sessions, we’ll see a number of fixes to particularly tricky zones and unbalanced situations, and an overall upgrade that opens up the feature to level 94. This leaves Skyshrine for level 95 grinding, Brokenskull Bay for level 96-100 grinding, or for those with the gear, High Keep Contested.

Not So Massively: Joystiq Finds Out They Are Being Shut Down

Written by Feldon on . Posted in Commentary, EQ2

If you’ve grown tired of media conglomerates buying out smaller sites that cover the Products and News that you care about then shuttering them shortly thereafter, you may want to look away.

massively-logo-print

The folks running MMO powerhouse Massively and its parent company Joystiq, found out today through sites like Re/Code and Kotaku that AOL plans to shutter their sites in the near future. Editor Alexander Sliwinski was put in the extraordinary position of posting a “no comment” in reaction to the news. To some, the most shocking news out of all this may be that AOL still exists, but for most of us, the number of gaming sites still actively covering MMOs especially EverQuest II continues to dwindle so any loss is of concern.

From Kotaku‘s article:

AOL is preparing to shut down the video game website Joystiq after over ten years of publication, according to people familiar with the situation. It’s unclear exactly when Joystiq will close, but we’ve heard that this is connected to a larger-scale reorganization planned by AOL, the longrunning media company that has had more than a few struggles in recent years.

When I spoke to him yesterday, Joystiq editor-in-chief Ludwig Kietzmann declined to comment on this story, but this morning, Joystiq reported that they were “aware of the closure,” despite the fact that AOL corporate had not informed the staff.

Last week, the AOL-owned TechCrunch reported that their parent company was planning a restructure that would lead to layoffs and site closures. Though TechCrunch didn’t offer specifics on which sites AOL would be closing, the report did mention that Joystiq‘s traffic had declined by 18% in the last year.

EQ2 Forums Still Dodgy After H1Z1 Launch

Six days after the paid Alpha test for H1Z1 began the various SOE forums (including EQ2) are still throwing numerous errors such as this one:

An unexpected database error occurred. Please try again later.
<!– Host ‘lvs-msgw2.station.sony.com’ is blocked because of many connection errors; unblock with ‘mysqladmin flush-hosts’ –>

The error above indicates that Platform/Ops have set a rule on the MySQL server that blocks connections if a flood is detected. The problem is, they did not exclude or “white list” the forum server from this rule. In other words, the forums are literally blocking themselves when they get too busy. At this point, posting on the forums is an effort in frustration. Probably just as well, as the moderators are on a rampage these days.

Meanwhile, EQ2 players are reporting frustrating amounts of in-game lag.

SOE Login Servers, EQ2 Game & Forums Affected By H1Z1 Launch

UPDATE: 11 hours after the intended launch of H1Z1, SOE president John Smedley declared the login server issue “fixed“. However even now, SOE login servers, EQ2 game servers, EQ2 forums are all groaning under the load and experiencing performance issues. More often than not, the EQ2 forums throw “403 Forbidden” errors rather than displaying the page. This suggests a type of throttling normally seen as a management of DDoS attacks. From RadarX last night at 10pm PST:

We are continuing to investigate outstanding issues which may prevent players from logging in to EverQuest 2. We hope to have this resolved as quickly as possible and appreciate everyone’s patience. Thank you!

Looks like SOE’s login hamsters are a bit distracted by the belated launch of SOE’s new zombie MMO game H1Z1 today at 3pm. As a result, logins to all SOE websites, forums, and games are completely freaked out. Hopefully things will calm down a bit and EQ2 servers (and forums) will become more responsive in the next few hours.

Producer’s Letter: A Few words on Level Agnostics ‘n’ Stuff

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

servercat

From Holly “Windstalker” Longdale on the EQ2 Forums:

Greetings Norrath!

With our Level 90 Heroic Characters release tomorrow, I’ve seen a few questions/comments around Level Agnostic Dungeons in various places so I thought I’d give a quick update on a couple of things.

First, on Level Agnostic dungeons: We’re working on updating existing Level Agnostic Dungeons to accommodate up to level 94. We expect to launch this in the next few weeks. We’ll give you more information and a date when we have it all done and tested and are confident in the launch. Later this year we plan to add more dungeons to the system also.

Secondarily, with Level Agnostic questions I’ve seen some inquiries around our plans to do Cross-Server Dungeons. I’m happy to say that’s still in our plan. What I haven’t said is what this new feature requires. Since December, we have been rewriting a lot of the back-end systems (i.e. databases and stuff) which is all part of our foundation for the long and healthy future of EQ2. The changes and updates we’re making are going to give us a lot of benefits on the dev/server side as well as giving us the ability to do things like Cross-Server Dungeons. This takes time as I’m sure you can imagine.

The Year Ahead for EverQuest II including EnterpriseDB!

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

network-connections

If you listened to our EQ2Wire Podcast with Kander or have been reading EQ2′s Update Notes lately, you know that last year’s “Weekly Updates” are out and bigger less frequent updates are back in. The “weekly feature” idea ended up being a drain on the dev team and we might have gotten an even bigger expansion were it not for the requisite deadlines of such a schedule. We’re glad to see this idea go away and to see the dev team able to once again release things on a schedule that maximizes their capability to give us great content.

This year, most weeks will see just a few fixes, but then we’ll have a few bigger updates to look forward to. In development this year before the expansion:

  • Entirely new level 100 Dungeon in Solo, Adv Solo, Heroic, and Raid versions – likely target is early Spring
  • Public Quests – new level 95-100 PQs and eventually PQs in most overland zones
  • Deity Revamp – worship more than one deity, quest revamp, new deities (Erollisi Marr!), etc.
  • Database Update – Cross-server dungeon finder
  • Fabled dungeons – Faydwer?
  • and maybe more!

EQ2U: Gear Sets, Gemmed Gear Gadget, and Gear Report

Written by Feldon on . Posted in EQ2, EQ2 Data & EQ2U

Here are our recent updates to our EQ2U Players site which are all about keeping up with the Joneses!!

Gemmed Gear Gadget

The Altar of Malice expansion builds upon the itemization changes begun with Tears of Veeshan. The number of “stat packages” gives players more choices in their gear selections, especially for fighters and certain priest classes. Also with the introduction of upgrade gems, it’s more important than ever to keep all the sets of gear straight! To respond to this need, we’ve introduced a “Gemmed Gear Gadget” page to EQ2U.

eq2u_gemmedgeargadget

This new Gemmed Gear Gadget page lets you pick a Class, an AoM Gem Color, and either a Slot or a Stat Package and then see all the matching item examine windows for all the max gemmed gear. The Stat Package buttons change based on which archetype you choose. As soon as matching armor pieces are discovered by players, they’ll be added to this page.

NOTE: Dethdlr is not to blame for the banner graphic or naming of this feature. That would fall to me and my fond memories of a certain Disney afternoon TV show. ;)

After the jump Gear Sets and Gear Report updates…
