Patch Notes for March 25, 2015

An EverQuest game update is scheduled for tomorrow morning (servers due up around 6:00 A.M. Pacific Time / 9:00 A.M. Eastern Time). Here are the patch notes:

*** Highlights ***

- The Advanced Loot System is here! See the section below for details.
- Added a prompt when deleting a character to make the player type the character's name as the confirmation instead of clicking a button.
- Most vendors from the Plane of Knowledge have returned from hiatus. They feel as though they can still compete with all-in-one vendors.

March 25, 2015

Most Plane of Knowledge vendors will have returned with today's patch.

The vendors that had mass-item inventories added to them last month have kept those inventories (except for those cases where Smithing and Tailoring supplies were erringly added to non-Smithing/non-Tailoring vendors). The inventories of the returning vendors are the same as they were prior to the February patch, so nothing new there other than their return to the zone.

Database listings have been brought up to date with what is seen in game. If you spot any discrepancies, please let us know.

Daybreak Players Step Up to Organize Fan Faire

Shortly before the sale of Sony Online Entertainment - now Daybreak Games - was announced, the word went out: SOE Live wasn't happening this year. Formerly known as Fan Faire, the annual gathering of players and SOE developers to celebrate their favorite games had become a vacation mainstay for many people.

After the announcement a dedicated group of players decided to pick up the project themselves. Project Fan Faire is in motion, but because there no big backers, they are running a Kickstarter in an attempt to fund the event. Tickets include admission to the event, three catered meals, and access to all player panels.

For more information, like Project Fan Faire on Facebook, or check out their website or Kickstarter!
