EQ Update #12 2016

Rare Items:

Worth the Pain?


Do you hunt for rare items?

I've done the Blued Two-handed hammer quest, my necro that moved to FV took my collection of rarities (like treant staff) with her. Of course on FV you can get super rares like the flowers of functionality in baz due to the no-drop rules (so it isn't quite the same --wish I had kept my collection on a normal server... oh well).

On Regular servers, what rare items were you pleased to have acquired?


Also, it looks like there may be some long-standing loot discrepancies in Veeshan's Peak due to revamps. Anyone that feels like hunting old dragons please report what still drops on an NPC like Xygoz vs. a newer NPC like Milyen Vioren (whom we don't even have a pic of yet).


Finally, it looks like Lucy the item collector is broken. PLEASE post in the "site feedback forum" how you feel about this. Especially you premium people... this update would have been 5x longer if the item collector was working.

Today's Hotfix Notes

Roshen posted a few, very brief notes about today's Hotfix:


From the EQ Forums:

*** Hotfix ***

- Plane of Hate: Revisited and Plane of Fear: Revisited - Fixed a problem that prevented characters who had a lockout from a zone's events from re-entering the zone where those lockouts were received.
- High Bokon Boromas (Raid) - High Bokon Boromas will no longer lock his health immediately on engage.
- Anashti Sul, Enslaver of Souls (Raid and Group) - Removed the corpse cleanup functionality from these events in order to prevent situations where Anashti Sul's corpse can not be looted.

EQ Update #10 2016

Killer of the Reckless



Retlon Brenclog actually has 2 known quests, one of which was only just fully submitted here by Sythik.

How many other old quests are unreported? (or at least not properly cross-flagged to NPC and items?)


Also, we could really use some better pictures of Retlon,

maybe someone could pull him out of the ditch and get a nice shot?

Game Update Notes - Jan. 20, 2016


Grab your coffee and sit back in your chair for a bit of a read.  Here are the rather extensive patch notes from today's update:


*** Highlights ***

- Made many fixes to The Broken Mirror (TBM) items and Phinigel raid instances. See the Items and Progression Servers sections below.
- Corrected a bug that prevented the items that advance progressive spell ranks from being awarded when you complete TBM progression achievements. If you have already completed these achievements, you will be awarded these items the next time you log on. Using any item will grant you the maximum rank you have earned.
- Corpses in Shadowrest are being removed and items will be parceled to players with some restrictions. See the Miscellaneous section below for details.
