Patch Notes for August 25, 2014

This morning's game update addressed a few problems that surfaced with last week's patch:

*** Emergency Update ***

- Corrected an issue that could cause offline guild members to be incorrectly added to a raid.
- Fixed a problem that was causing many AA ability timers to conflict with standard melee ability timers.
- Grelleth, Her Majesty the Queen - Corrected an issue where Grelleth was not functioning correctly during her raid encounter.


- The EverQuest Team

A Look at EverQuest: The Darkened Sea & Beyond

This past year has been exciting for EverQuest! We've seen the addition of Heroic characters, new race/class combinations (Froglok Monks and Wood Elf Beastlords), player designed missions, and new zones such as the Plane of War, Tower of Rot and Argin Hiz. To top it all off, players celebrated EQ's 15th anniversary this past March with additional in-game festivities. EQ is expanding their player studio categories to include robes, and according to Senior Producer Thom Terrazas, players will be able to customize robe templates and he predicts that guilds will love being able to display their own designs. Check out a short video showcasing the robes after the jump.
