Group XP Hatelist Clarification

Written by Feldon on . Posted in Game Updates & Maintenance

So it seems like every year, I mistranscribe at least one thing said in the panels. At the frenetic pace required to cover the content, it’s inevitable, but it still leads to grief for developers and I apologize for that.

In this case, with the upcoming Group XP changes (which I am very excited about), somehow I got the impression that if you were not on the hate list (you had not either damaged the mob or healed or buffed an ally) you would get NO xp in the group. This couldn’t be further from the truth.

From Terrogaunt on the EQ2 Forums:

Hey guys. Just chiming in to address confusion on this.

You will still get experience if you’re not on the hatelist.

You just won’t get as much as you would have if you were able to contribute. The change makes it so you get experience to that of soloing if you are able to contribute to the battle. If not, you will still get the same amount (that of a N-sized group).

So in essence, this just means for you that you are getting the chance at even more exp in situations where you’re able to help kill the mob.

Breaking: New Raid Content in September

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

When asked about mob-specific war runes (red adornments) from earlier Velious zones being made available in Drunder, Kander had this surprising response:

There is new raid content coming in September. Most of these will make a re-appearance there.

At EQ2Wire, we have been very concerned that there would be no new high level content between April 2012 and late November 2012. Now it looks like we have something to look forward to!
