Default Patch Message for January 15, 2003

January 15, 2003 3:00 am
------------------------------

*** Announcing The Legacy of Ykesha ***

The Legacy of Ykesha will be the first download-only extension for EverQuest. This product will not be available in stores. This extension will include some great new gameplay features, as well as new zones for characters ranging from level 35 up to level 60.

Legacy of Ykesha Features include:

A new playable race: Frogloks
Enhanced Looking For Group Tool
New Cartography System
New Magic Item slot: Charms
Armor Dyes
Dozens of new creatures
Expanded bank capacity
New zones
New spells

For more information, please visit www.legacyofykesha.com


*** Patch Information ***

** Gameplay/Features **

- With our last patch and the patch today, we've significantly reduced the amount of bandwidth that EverQuest needs to use, even in large raid or extremely-crowded-zone situations.
- Fixed a problem with tints not properly updating when armor is removed.
- Fixed a bug with character faces displaying incorrectly to other players when you zone in after them.
- Fixed resurrection timer that was counting down against the 3 hour limit when player was not logged in.
- Corrected a problem with health and movement updates being delayed.


** Spells **

- NPCs will now notice Druid and Shaman Percentage Heal spells in a manner similar to traditional healing spells.
- Removed the chance for slow spells to be reversed from the 17 NPCs that had this ability.
- Fixed a bug that was preventing Curses, Diseases, and Poisons from being removed.
- Raised all recast times below 2.25 seconds up to 2.25 seconds. This is a change in the spell data as the first part of a two-part change needed to correct the "Recast time not met" problem. More information is available at the Developer's Corner at www.everquest.com.


** Alternate Advancement/Special Abilities **

- The range on the Bard Ability "Boastful Bellow" has been increased slightly.
- Fixed a bug with Harm Touch that was not allowing it to increase the standard amount per level over level 60.


** User Interface **

- Fixed a bug with effects in the Songs window. They were not getting removed on the client when the bard was dispelled.
- Introduced new Story window. The purpose of this window is to provide story updates in a readily available location. ALT-N toggles the window. You can select to have the window pop up when new story elements are added if you wish.
- Item Links are once again creatable from Items and from other Item Links. Please do not attempt to "mine" the servers for undiscovered items. Links now have a built-in mechanism to prevent those who would go on fishing expeditions by sending up many bad links in an attempt to discover new items. These invalid links are logged, as are the accounts of those who create them.
- Added an optional confirmation box before spending AA points. To turn on this confirmation box, please check the Options window.


** Miscellaneous **

- Sage Quests in Plane of Knowledge have been fixed.
- The event to fight Bertoxxulous in the Crypt of Decay will reset 4 to 6 hours after the event is failed. It will respawn normally if the event is won.


** New/Changed Interface Files **

- EQUI_StoryWnd.xml (actually added with the Jan. 9th patch)
- EQUI_OptionsWnd.xml

VI is getting desperate to keep eq stable til eq2 methinks. I can smell it.

Though the thought of hundreds of froglocks swarming various high end mobs is both appealing and amusing. Though if they add lvl 70 im gonna cry.

Classes Frogloks should be able to pick (since they exist IG as mobs):

Warrior (Ilis/Krump Knights, but never seen them cast a paladin spell or LoH... so I think knight is more of a misname)
Paladin (Famous froglok paladins! :P)
Enchanter
Mage
Wizard
Shaman

And you could argue for SK (lots of SK ghoul froggies, anyways)

Can't think of any I missed.

Default misleading expansion

seems kinda misleading when they say downloadable (to me anyway)


MORE ON LEGACY OF YKESHA

Confirming yesterdays new story, the Legacy of Ykesha expansion will cost players US$17.99 to obtain if they pre-order ($21.99 if you order after February 24th).
Even though it is a downloadable expansion it isn't a free extension of the existing content.

It is believed at present each account will require purchasing of an expansion account key just like previous retailed expansions.

I also read something in the mumbo jumbo about a possible additional monthly fee... but it wasn't very clear to me. Not sure I would buy the expansion except for the added bank size.

Ha Ha, imagine a group of Frogloks going in to hunt in LGuk or in OS. Now imagine the shammy rooting the main tank. Also imagine the tank trying to target the wizzie in his mob to attack him. Its going to be fun.

Default Froglok Dreams . . . .

Boy was i suprosed today when i read all about the new dowloadable expansion ! I dreamed of a free expansion, but couldnt log on, so i went to the website about it. It turned out to be a blank screen, Nothing new with soe - so i waited for the servers to come back up. Then i read the message - 17.99 to get it, What a jip ! They cant fit something into the time schedule to be released with pop, so They throw in a required feature(added bank space) and Prolly a few No drop spells and Whamo - 75.5 Million dollars extra in the bank. Not that im cheap, Its already preordered but its just kinda funny how greedy they are.

VI seems kind of clueless to me (yeah, big surprise)...

as well as new zones for characters ranging from level 35 up to level 60.
Are they not aware of all those mostly empty 50-60 zones already out there? Guess they like 90% of the 50+ people being crammed into 6 zones (PoD/PoN/PoI/PoJ/PoV/PoS). How about some more 60-65 zones with XP on part with what you can get in PoV/PoS/Tactics/HoH?

Naw.. that'd make way too much sense

Guess they figure since AA is so easy to get now that poeple will be making lots of twinks :P
