DBG General Maintenance: Tuesday 11/10 at 4:00 AM

Daybreak General Maintenance: Tuesday, November 10 @ 4AM PST

DBG has announced it will perform a general maintenance beginning at 4:00 AM PST on Tuesday, November 10, 2015  The estimated downtime is a minimum of 4 hours, depending on service and how fast they can kickstart the hampsters when it's over.

This maintenance will impact the following Daybreak services across all games:

  • Game logins for all Daybreak games
  • Forum & Web logins for all Daybreak games
  • Commerce and account management for all Daybreak games

Because this is just General Maintenance, there will be no patch notes or updates.



Everquest Updates for November 8th, 2015

Remember that old flame?

Maybe you should go see her (or him) again, after all what harm could it do?




[This is actually a test to see if I can successfully post an image in an update, figured it might as well be a memorable NPC. A big thank you to all those who have been uploading EQ images, there was a bit of a backlog and I think it is up to date now.]

We're getting reports of broken recipes on some older cultural armor recipes, specifically the Fine Seafarer's that was originally a human-made set a few other races could equip. If you have knowledge of the making of this armor (and other races' comparable sets) and/or a willingness to try recipes out please post under the respective items and verify they can be still be made (or if you can point to a patch where they were all removed from the game or given new recipes).

"Today is the Greatest Day I Have Ever Known"


-So proclaimed  Shakey Scarecrow  from his twiggy vantage point. "Can't wait for tomorrow I might not have that long. I'll tear my heart out, before I get out" muttered Nillipuss  as he madly rushed through the jum-jum plots. Meanwhile,  a shady halfling  muses to no one in particular: "Pink ribbon scars that never forget. I tried so hard to cleanse these regrets".

[What better place to prank and play than Rivervale? Besides we need faction hits and drop updates on nearly all the NPC there (aside from Mayor Gubbin).

So let's say that Zam's Most Wanted is a Halloween of mayhem in the Halfling lands.]


Some Updates:
