All servers will come down at 7am PDT (3pm BST/4pm CET) for the War of Zek (Game Update 61) patch. Servers will be down for at least 3 hours. Here is some important information on what to expect from this update:

* All Alternate Advancement points (AAs) will be reset.
* All equipment, food and drink, ammunition, etc, will be unequipped and placed into overflow.
* Adornments will be removed from worn equipment (excluding worn appearance slot items). These will be placed into your overflow.
* All item unlocks will be preserved. (Extended Only)
* Any attuned equipment in your inventory, bank or house vault will become unattuned.
* Stats on your equipment may be altered due to the reitemization.
* Ensure that you are camped out somewhere safe before the update.

The full patch notes are now available on out Game Update 61 page. For more information on this update be sure to check out our GU61 previews!

During the downtime you are welcome to join us in the #EQ2 channel of ZAM's IRC chat. Feldon of EQ2Wire also has set up a ZAM IRC java applet that you can use.

This update introduced a massive item overhaul and changes to the Alternate Advancement system, some of which has caused issues now that it has gone live. Here are some known issues:

* AAs are not reset. Zoning once will fix this.
* AAs reset themselves after leveling. No user-side fix for this
* AAs reset after reassigned if you zone. Zoning at least once before reassigning them should prevent this.
* AAs are resetting for some people upon logout. No user-side fix for this.
* Items that may have previously had stats beneficial to your class no longer do. The best thing to do for this is to /bug report the item and explain which stat is missing from it. Double check any unattuned item before re-equipping it!
* Items may be assigned to the wrong slot. These are few and far between, but /bug report them as you come across them.

Zoltaroth gave this warning regarding AAs:

Quote:
We found some issues with the AAs resetting. We will likely do another full reset with the next hotfix. Just posting here as a heads up.

Smokejumper followed up with this statement:

Quote:
We're working on a code fix now. As soon as we have the solution, we'll let you know when it will be pushed Live.

Rothgar later added:
Quote:
We will be hotifixing this bug tomorrow. The downside is that all of your items will become unattuned again and we will refund adornments applied to any equipped gear.

After this runs tomorrow, the items should remain unattuned until you decide to attune them again.

Tomorrow's hotfix will also include a fix for the AA trees not resetting properly or resetting at incorrect times.

No kidding! Some gear is still reattuning after you logout your char. There's two ways around that: put the item(s) on broker or put the item(s) in shared bank.

Optional unattune incoming next hotfix (ETA: Tuesday, August 30th):

Rothgar wrote:
First let me apologize for the issues we've had recently when attempting to unattune your items.

The unattuning process was meant to be a curtesy to all the players because of the changes that the items are going through. It wasn't something we had to do, but we wanted to do so you'd have the opportunity to sell or trade an item that no longer has value to you.

Unfortunately, as you know, we've had some issues with that process not persisting when you log off. We rushed to fix this problem for this morning's hotfix and a bug with the process still exists.

We know that this has been an inconvenience for some of you. We've decided to modify this procedure to give you a choice as to whether or not you want to have your items unattuned. (Adornments will no longer pop off since that process worked fine). We will take the time to make sure this is working correcly and push this change out with next week's hotfix, most likely on Tuesday.

So, this is what you can expect to happen. When you log in after the next hotfix, you'll be presented with an option to unattune your items. If you click Yes, all items will be unattuned and any items that were equipped will go into your overflow slot. If you click No, we will leave your items as they are.

Again, I'm very sorry for this inconvenience but we will make it right.
