Transfers open for Progression Servers

Yesterday, DBG announced that they are opening up the Account-to-Account transfer service to their progression servers, Ragefire, Lockjaw and Phinigel!

From the EQ Website: "Account-to-Account transfers are a way that players can manage their characters. This service allows people to move characters from a single to multiple accounts so those characters can play together at the same time, or move characters spread across multiple accounts into one account to help save on membership dollars each month.

BEFORE you transfer a character from one account to another, remember that you need to contact our Customer Support team! For more information about this, see the knowledge base article here."

 

More news about upcoming server downtime is below...

Just For One Day

 

 

Will Lucan D'Lere ever get to prove his faith in his god? (Cross game lore suggests he is still a Paladin, despite doing "evil" things. Maybe it's time for a Seige of Freeport and Lucan to stand tall... Erollisi Marr would certainly take notice of someone that loved his people, his city above all else  --maybe she'd even tolerate some harmtouching and skelly petting to go along with some hand laying-on, after all love is blind.)

EQ Shadowrest Conspiracy

A dormant feature for almost 5 years, Roshen announced today that EQ devs are about to "clean house" on the Shadowrest zone.


Why is this happening now, as in what is the point of it?

 

Graveyard

Conspiracy theorists suggest this is the first sign of the coming apocalypse  ...err... server mergers, could this be true?

 

Maybe Shadowrest is being recycled into a new end-game raid zone? Hardcore heritage? New monster mission based on putting flowers on graves?

 

Anyways, here's some potentially true and helpful info taken from Roshen's actual post on the official boards:

 

"We’re going to start clearing out old Shadowrest corpses on February 10th, 2016. Please travel to Shadowrest and loot your items from your corpses before then.


We’re talking about VERY old corpses from back when corpses still had items left on them (over FIVE years ago), we recommend you take a moment to clean up your Shadowrest corpses if you think that there’s any chance that there are items still out there waiting to be looted.

When this happens, we’ll be parcel mailing to your characters any items that are still on a corpse, before we get rid of those corpses forever. This has the possibility of filling up your parcel boxes. If your parcel box fills up,you’ll lose items that are over the cap.

Instructions on How to Clean Your Shadowrest Corpses:

If you get a message saying "You currently have a corpse present in Shadowrest" when you log in, you probably want to pay Shadowrest a visit!

Once in Shadowrest, hail Keeper of Lost Things. Say [bodies] to the Keeper to get the number of corpses that the Keeper has stored and to get the instructions on how to retrieve your corpses. Once you have summoned your corpses, right click on the corpses and loot all of your items. You may need to use the command /corpsedrag if your corpses are stacked in a location that you cannot target.

Note: You still may have items on corpses in Shadowrest even if you don't get this message when you log in.


We appreciate everyone that makes the effort to go through their old corpses before February!"

 

 

And will give O-board poster Fanra (yep, that Fanra!) props for posting something more helpful:

 

"This post has everything except for how to get to Shadowrest. For those wondering, in Plane of Knowledge speak to Devin Traical. The location of Devin Traical is approx. -13.29
483.51,-90.64 in PoK. I'm not sure if she appears in the Find window.

Tell her "Travel" to go to Shadowrest."

 

EQ Update #7 of 2016

Forget about incomplete itemization, funny aug slots, named not spawning and so on. The O-boards are missing the point... The greatest issue with The Broken Mirror remains:

Good news! There's a "new item" which suggests the item collector is functioning again. (Let's hope so...)

Several of the requests from the past few updates remain pending. Tarl Punox clarity of information is holding up updating several quests/zones/items for example.

 

Big thanks to those that are reposting info under the new NPC, quest and item entries... The Broken Mirror is starting to take proper shape. You are the heart of Zam!

Great classic look pic, for his level 30 North Karana entry

...for his level 35 West Karana entry we see the crisp, modern look (call me young Arias).

 

The level 35 version appears to be newer, but is listed as being in plain old West Karana. Is this something to do with the dragon with the sheet over her face --err we mean Call of the Forsaken (Ethernere Tainted West Karana) ?

 

If we need to correct either entry, please let us know.

New Zones: Crypt of Sul: Into the Temple (b)

Zone Updates: Plane of Hate: Revisited [The Broken Mirror Version]Crypt of Sul: Into the Temple (b)

EQ Update #1 of 2016

/salute to Tarvas for helping big-time with The Broken Mirror (there are a lot of NPC entries to catch up, but Tarvas has given several big lists to work from in the comment section of the December 30th Update).

 

I've had a chat with Cyliena, and unfortunately we're not going to be getting any more volunteer admn at this time. Several of you had offered to help, and believe me that is/was wanted. There are some key ways to help without the admn status though:

 

Edit: Clarification: doing #1-4 below can really help if you sort the information where it needs to go by posting the pieces of information as directly under the correct NPC/Item/Quest as possible. If all of those are missing, then default to posting under the zone... if the top post in the forum thread for a zone summarizes all the "needs created information" from the thread it will be a lot faster for the few of us with the admn access to do that part. I'll say it another way... anything that anyone wants to do that puts the information closest to where it needs to be in a cut-and-paste ready wording really helps.

 

1. Pick a The Broken Mirror zone, look over the posts and summarize it all in a "this isn't entered yet" kind of post. If you do this you will find that some posts in a thread may be entered already (with me replying to them) and other posts will be redundant as the info was entered via another thread  --but some stuff has been missed. Remember that quests/zones/NPC were missing when some of our users posted info under the zones (and some are still missing).

 

2. Help make sure The Broken Mirror quests/tasks are written up in a readable way. Identify missing details such as starting NPC (many of them have to be reflagged as quest NPC before the quest can be connected to them).

 

3. Item collector has snagged a lot of items now for The Broken Mirror. Post under the items what they drop from (as the NPC may not exist in the bestiary yet).

 

4. We need screenshots of most TBM NPCs.
