Update Notes: Tuesday December 6, 2016 — Census Fixed, Better Ascension System

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

From the EQ2 Forums:


  • Fixed a bug where characters who had wardrobe items would not export properly to census.


  • The method for gaining available ascension experience has changed! Based on feedback, you now gain available ascension experience similar to how vitality is gained, about 20,000 per hour online or offline. Additionally, you can acquire items that further increase that amount instantly, up to a maximum of 7,000,000. Members get a 20% bonus to all guided ascension experience earned, the guild buff for level 200+ guilds grants a 10% bonus and you get a 100% bonus for each ascension class of level 10.
  • Guided Ascension scrolls now directly modify the amount of guided ascension experience the character has available.
  • All characters that have at least one level of ascension have been granted four Guided Ascension scrolls to address the loss of Guided Ascension experience some characters experienced with the spell buffs.


  • Shady Swashbuckler is now offering Dread’s Visage of Greenmist or Fear’s Visage of Greenmist to those who have completed “Kunark Ascending: A Chosen Weapon” but have since lost the weapon.

Crypt of Dalnir: Baron’s Workshop

  • The junction box lever should no longer get small characters stuck on it after being pulled.

Lost City of Torsis: The Spectral Market [Heroic]

  • Swarthy Deception may now be cast on raid or group friends, and will stack with from multiple casters.
  • Enhance: Reinforcement will now improve duration as well as reuse speed.
  • Hateful Respite will now trigger its threat component instantly, and the threat component is applied over time.


  • Twark Teleport Totem now takes you slightly behind Glibnox’s platform rather than on top of it.

  • Guided Ascension scrolls are now no-value.
  • Undead Monster Tome – Item is no longer Lore.
  • The Obulus Frontier Garden is now no-value.
  • Wands will no longer lie to you about needing to be 65535 meters away to fire.
  • Multiple items in Shard of Hate have been updated to offer better progression for tank classes.


  • A Mist Call – Advisor Vrizsril no longer acts on a loop, spawning and then running down the hall.
  • Find Sethis Kai – Sethis Kai should no longer find himself in the river below.
  • Shade of the First Brood – Herald of Ganak should no longer drop below his observing point above the Field of Bone.
and from Caith:
Some notes that were missed in this mornings patch notes.

    Love how you moved the Census line to the top of the notes! 🙂


  • Sands


    “you can acquire items that further increase that amount instantly” sounds like you’ll be able to buy your ascension classes on the market place?


    • Marvis


      I think they mean the equivalent of vitality potions for XP which can already be bought…


      • Sands


        Yes, but without vitality you can still gain normal XP all day long.

        Without these extra items you won’t be able to continue gaining ascension XP after a certain amount.

        My hope is that you don’t have to buy items off the marketplace to even be able to gain XP.
