Written by Feldon on . Posted in EQ2, EQ2 Data & EQ2U, Game Updates & Maintenance, Itemization, TLE/Prestige Servers

US Servers: 7:00~9:00am PDT | 10:00am~Noon EDT | 15:00~17:00 BST | 16:00~18:00 CET
EU Servers: 9:00~11:00pm PDT | Midnight~2:00am EDT | 05:00~07:00 BST | 06:00~08:00 CET
Thurgadin (the EU server) crashed at 9pm GMT and the decision was made to go ahead and apply today’s update which caused a downtime of approximately 1 hour.

From the EQ2 Forums:


  • The Aerakyn Mentor has had his name changed to Lonce Jellysmots.


  • [eq2u]Orb of Concentrated Memories[/eq2u] can no longer be modified by reuse speed.
  • Writ of the Arena Master now has its effect.
  • Undying Champion’s Knuckles now has the correct class restrictions for a fist weapon.
  • Epic Weapons that lost their FABLED tag are once again fabled.
  • Undying Champion’s Dagger can no longer be used by brawlers.


  • The unicorn-rump-sitting-cheap-Far-Seas-wine-drinking escaped fabled spirit in The Village of Shin can now also delete your active “Warzone Devastation” quests.


  • Corrected an issue that prevented the first 10 players to obtain level 80 adventure level from receiving the Undying Power adornment pack claim. This fix was retroactive.
  • 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.


  • 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.

Trackback from your site.

    This made me laugh.

    Orb of Concentrated Memories can no longer be modified by reuse speed.

    Sometimes I wonder if they even think on these things. This has been like this since it was launched and at this point, who cares. Were they loosing so much on potions in the marketplace that they needed to change this? I am just dumfounded that this was even on the list of things to change. Of course I have 0 need to use these being max on my toons for forever, but it still makes me laugh that they even thought this was an issue.

      The only reason would be that will raise the max level for new extension at the end of year, and that they expect to sell a lot of xp/vitality potions by setting a very hard xp curve.

      But since you consume 100% of vitality in less than 5min at high level I sincerly hope that they fix the vitality consumption rate before the next xpac


  • xpsync


    Lonce Jellysmots, much better name.


  • Sands


    No tradeskill vitality item nerf, just the adventuring one?


  • Noctew


    Okay, who is the joker who shut down Thurgadin at 20:00 GMT Tuesday instead of 04:00 GMT Wednesday? /rolleyes


  • Melodius


    yes Thurgadin down, main time in Europe, just being in an instance with group 🙁


  • Kulavvy


    Shame that ts_level and ts_class fields are filled only for like 1% toons (only fresh ones?).
    That makes them useless 🙁
