January 31, 2016 - Recipes for Time Locked Progression Servers

Some time ago I took the time to recreate many of the enchanted jewelry recipes which will only combine on the Time Locked Progression Servers (TLP). You can find those recipes by going to THIS PAGE.

Today, thanks to all the hard work from other folks, I have recreated many of the original alchemy recipes which are also in use on the TLP Servers. You can find those recipes HERE.

If you find any errors that need to be corrected or have other input, please feel free to post your feedback/input in the Database Update Forum. If there are more things that would add value to Tradeskills on the TLP servers, please feel free to share and I'll see what I can do to help organize things. I'm not sure how much I'll be able to do with recipes that work on both live and TLP servers, but I'm happy to get the recipes that were removed with each tradeskill revamp recreated if it's possible.

    December 19, 2015 - December Game Updates

    Apparently there have been a few game updates so far this month.

    December 2nd Updates.

    December 9th Updates.

    December 16th Updates.

    Looks like the vendor who sells the book for the craftable armor augments has been "fixed", so I'll be getting those recipes in as soon as the Add recipe functionality is repaired.

    November 18, 2015 - The 22nd Expansion goes live! Introducing The Broken Mirror

    A goddess wakes and gazes into a looking glass. The reflection of her true nature fractures and breaks.

    Even as the looking glass shatters and the world around her dissolves, Anashti Sul only looks deeper still into the fragments as they drift away. When her fractured mind glimpses her surroundings, she discovers that she is adrift in an unknown time and place where gods and goddesses maintain direct influence over Norrath. A hunger for power wells within her, having passed many an age with no power at all and an upstart sitting in her place. With a whole new realm before her, she resolves to rule again!

    Find the full patch/release notes here.

    November 02, 2015 - Code Maintenance

    Due to a change in the programming language used by EQ Traders Corner (PHP), I need to make a change in the code and the database. During this change, various parts fo the site will be broken. I will continue to work on it until I can get it all fixed. I have no particular ETA but I plan to have it all fixed today.

    ---This is now complete. Go about your normal business

    September 15, 2015 - New Expansion on the way!

    Holly just announced that a new expansion is on the way and will be available for PRE-ORDER on October 1! NOTE at the end, if you're interested in obtaining a TDS Collector's Edition to get that houseboat, it's on sale for $45.

    From the Everquest Forums:

    Good day, Norrath!

    We are excited to announce we have an expansion on the way – that’s right, expansion – not “campaign.” As we’ve been toiling away this year, the content we’ve been working on evolved and grew more than we expected.

    We wanted this expansion to have content that reached beyond the highest-level players. So, in addition to new and updated zones for levels 105, we are including two instanced raid zones for levels 75 to 105 to play in together! These “level agnostic” raid zones will balance themselves to the highest level player in your raid. It just so happens that these two level agnostic zones are the original Plane of Fear and Plane of Hate! So if you never got a chance to raid in those planes, or long for them, you can relive those days with a broader range of players when we launch.

    This expansion includes over 15 raids – after getting feedback for more raids over last year’s expansion – and a ton of level-scaling missions and Heroic Adventures! And as with previous releases, there will be new AAs, spells, and gear. The story is innovative and impacts gameplay in interesting ways too.

    In addition, if you purchase (or pre-order) the next expansion, you’ll also get access to ALL of the previous expansion content.

    We’ll have the full expansion reveal and pre-orders for the 22nd expansion will start on Thursday, October 1, 2015 with detailed information on our website and forums. Also, the EQ team will host a livestream and share highlights, walk through some zones, and answer your questions!

    Also, our September update is right around the corner on September 23. It is hefty indeed! It includes a whole host of fixes and updates – with a couple we wanted to highlight here.

    We all know that having to reapply all of those clicky buffs from your gear after you die – like Ancestral Memories, Expanding Mind, Form of Defense, Grim Aura, Prismatic Ward – is really annoying! The team “fixed” it! Now you can opt for a permanent passive AA solution for a lot of your clicky gear buffs! This update also addresses some issues we’ve had with pulling and aggro management in the game. Successful pulling in EQ is – or was – an art form that was eroded over the years and we are bringing some challenge back with some adjustments to Fading Memories and Fling effects. See this post for more info.

    For our Time-Locked Progression server players on Ragefire and Lockjaw, we will be adding load-balancing instances, like we did for Nagafen’s Lair, to the Plane of Hate and Plane of Fear zones to help with overcrowding. Raid bosses will only appear in the base zones, however. There’s a lot more in the update, so look for the patch notes soon! Of course, as we head into October expect to see the Nights of the Dead come to…uh…life in Norrath! Starting October 1 in the marketplace, we will begin selling new holiday themed weapons, a direhound mount, the long-lost hand mounts, and…a bag with a random adoptable housecat familiar! Trade them to your friends or collect them all yourself, and keep an eye out for the easily terrified Scaredy Cat familiar and always agitated Cranky Cat familiar! We have some wicked Player Studio items too! Nights of the Dead kicks off on October 28 this year until November 11.

    As we head into October 1, we’re offering a last-chance 50% discount on web purchases of our The Darkened Sea expansion. This will be your last chance to get The Darkened Sea Collector’s Edition items. Also, for this limited time, you can also purchase The Darkened Sea at regular price if you want to use Daybreak Cash. This sale ends at 11:59PM Pacific on Wednesday, September 30, 2015!

    We will have more details for you about our next expansion in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!

    July 09, 2015 - Yes ...

    ... there are problems with connecting to (and staying connected to) Daybreak games and their forums. No, there is not an ETA at this time. A tweet earlier from Smed indicated that it was a network issue upstream from them, but I have no other details or confirmation. Deep breaths, folks. {goes back to excavating her office}

    Edit: and I was behind with the news because I do not use twitter. Apparently it is a DDOS attack. The children are at it again. {sigh} Really, go clean around your computer and stuff, pet your cat, hug your significant other, and so on. This, too, shall pass.

    June 17, 2015 - Server Downtime

    All EverQuest Live Servers will be brought offline on Wednesday, June 17, 2015 at 6:00AM Pacific* for the June update. Servers will be unavailable for approximately two hours.

    *** Highlights ***

    • Fixed an issue where a player could crash after logging back into a load-balanced zone (/pickzone) or gating to a point in a load-balanced zone when that particular instance had closed.
    • Corrected an issue causing players entering mission instances of some zones to be teleported to the non-instanced versions.
    • Fixed an issue regarding binding in a load-balanced zone; you should now properly be sent to an available zone when gating or returning to your bind point.
    • Fixed an issue with the leave on corpse option in the manage loot window that could cause crashes.
    • All Noble Exchange merchants can now be used to send or receive parcels. These merchants are available in every starting city, the Plane of Knowledge, the Bazaar, and other zones throughout Norrath.
    Full patch notes can be found HERE.

    May 19, 2015 - Patch Notes: May 19, 2015

    Patch day today! You can read the full patch notes HERE.

    *** Highlights ***

    • Added a search function for advanced loot filters.
    • Improved the load speed of characters into the world and when reloading UI.
    • Moved the advanced loot settings from the Edit Filters window into a new window.
    • Corrected a problem that caused some events that take place in instanced zones, such as the Arcane Fair for the Wizard step of "An Epic Request" to stop working.

    *** Progression Servers ***

    • The new Plane of Knowledge vendors that consolidate all tradeskill items have been restricted to The Darkened Sea or later.

    The Progression Server change above was on Test, I'm hoping that this doesn't affect all servers because they took out all the vendors at the small bank, including Culturalist Devari who sells Artisan Materials for Alternate Cultural Armor recipes. I could not locate Artisan Materials on any alternate vendors and Artisan Antemm had not been updated with the other TDS tradeskill items. I'll check Povar once it comes back up!

    April 22, 2015 - Patch Notes: March 25, 2015

    Patch Notes: April 22, 2015

    *** Highlights ***

    • Advanced Loot System: Improved the performance of adding, deleting, and changing loot filter settings (AN/AG/Never).
    • Spells with resource tap components will now stack with each other as intended.
    • When you invite a non-grouped character to the raid it should now put them in "not in a group" and not as a group leader.

    *** Quests & Events ***

    • Cleansing the Grounds - Heavily modified this Heroic Adventure to make it a bit easier and more rewarding.
    • Principal Quastori Numicia - Fixed an error that prevented players from obtaining the Balance of Power achievement in this raid.
    • In Kedge Keep, a harbinger of the seas can help adventurers get their epic 1.0 pieces that would normally drop from Phinigel Autropos.
    • In Dreadlands, a harbinger of frost can help adventurers get their epic 1.0 pieces that would normally drop from Gorenaire.
    • In Skyfire Mountains, a harbinger of flame can help adventurers get their epic 1.0 pieces that would normally drop from Talendor.
    • All item drops from these harbingers (including those added in earlier updates) must now be converted via a right-click before they can be handed to the quest NPC.
    • These harbingers will not appear on Progression servers until House of Thule is unlocked.

    *** Spells ***

    • Spells that are triggered by doom effects will now check for stacking conflicts before they are applied.
    • Spells with resource tap components will now stack with each other as intended.

    *** NPC ***

    • Warrior guards in Neriak Commons and Third Gate are no longer flagged as Noble exchange merchants. Guard W`Selo by the bank will still be happy to take your business.

    *** Mercenaries ***

    • Fixed a problem that caused the game to repeatedly send messages in load balanced zones about suspending mercenaries even when there were no mercenaries to suspend.

    *** Miscellaneous ***

    • Advanced Loot System: Improved the performance of adding, deleting, and changing loot filter settings (AN/AG/Never).
    • Fixed a bug that wasn't allowing /autobank to put empty containers in containers in your bank.
    • Fixed a misleading message given to players when they attempted to create fellowship camps when three players weren't close enough to the camp.
    • When you invite a non-grouped character to the raid it should now put them in "not in a group" and not as a group leader.
    • Removed an errant text message when you enter an expedition (not an adventure) that launches with an LDoN switch.
    • Created new option for players to switch instances in load-balanced zones with the new /pickzone command. Once a flagged zone reaches a threshold of players, it will start another instance of of the zone which you will be able to go to. The goal of this functionality is to help reduce congestion in starting areas.
    • Corrected the order in which the current Progression Server poll questions appear.

    *** UI ***

    • If load balancing has created a new instance of a zone, you will see the ID of the instance you zone in to. It will also now appear at the top of the /pickzone window.
    • Convertible items now have an item link in the description window to show you what the item will be transformed into.
    • Fixed some confirmation popup windows that were asking for incorrect or irrelevant information. Deleting spell sets was one such example.
    • Made the Audio Triggers list window resizable.

    - Changed -

    • EQUI_ItemDisplay.xml
    • EQUI_MIZoneSelectWnd.xml

    *** Previously Updated ***

    • The triggered version of the Iksar broodling in the Plane of Fear that's spawned via the harbinger of Fear will now properly drop the Child's Tear instead of a citizenship token.
    • Several epic 1.0 quest turn-ins which were multi-questable until the most recent update are now multi-questable again.
    • Korucust's Royal Pain - Lowered the difficulty of NPCs in this mission.
    • Liquid Courage - Fixed an issue that was causing the bonus objective to be awarded to the incorrect person (or nobody).

    *** 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.
