5-7 Patch Notes

Postby Pherawk » Wed May 07, 2008 9:18 am

*** Highlights ***

- Improvements have been made to the functionality of the EQPlayers pages.

- Secrets of Faydwer pet focus items have had their effects improved.


*** Items ***

- Changed variations of the same SoF evolving item that were not on lore groups to now share lore groups.
- Fixed grammar issues and erroneous item equip slots with many tradeskill gems.
- Exchanged the loot items from Squire Tectoran and Squire Zirkanamef in Crystallos that they had "borrowed" from each other.
- Secrets of Faydwer pet focus items have had their effects improved.


*** Quests & Events ***

- Several quests in the Mechamatic Guardian should now update their counts when named mobs are killed.
- Characters who worship Karana should no longer be KOS to some mobs in monster missions.


*** Spells ***

- The Putrefaction spell should now last its full duration in PvP play.


*** NPC ***

- Eron in Dragonscale Hills will now trade blue gem grade faycite for clear gem grade faycite at any time.
- Eron in Dragonscale Hills will now give you some help if you are stuck with the shadow counting book. This help is simply resetting the flags that may be keeping you from uncovering the gem boxes.


*** Tradeskills ***

- Added a root beer float recipe that uses the new ice.
- Changed Intricate Snowborn armor to use malleable ore as it should.


*** AA ***

- The 10th Veteran Reward (Summon Resupply Agent) will now count down the timer in the Guild Lobby and Guild Hall.
- The 10th Veteran Reward (Summon Resupply Agent) will no longer be affected by buff-extension AAs.
- Changed Arcane Whisper to allow more than one player to use this ability on a single NPC at a time.


*** Zones ***

- Meldrath has initiated a new security measure within the gyrospires that will prevent invaders from easily infiltrating the more secure floors of the spires.


*** Miscellaneous ***

- /guildstatus should once again work on any players in the zone regardless of location.
- The Mark NPC command should display NPC names correctly now.
- The /who command will now always put your name last in the list.
- Fixed a problem in the bazaar where if you used mouselook right after right clicking on a trader name in the search window your view would pitch up to look at the ceiling.
- /hidecorpse looted now persists after zoning (the hidden corpses don't persist, but the /hidecorpse looted "mode" does).
- Looting all the items on a corpse when in /hidecorpse looted mode will cause the corpse to immediately disappear, rather than fade out slowly.

Easily makes the top 10 list of useless patches, especially for 6 hours. Looks like they've nerfed getting document samples from Beza/Zeka unless they're trying to prevent something else that I'm not thinking of.

Thats what I thought when I read it pherawk. No more going up the side to avoid the main floor?.. although that wasn't difficult to clear.
