August 14, 2018 - Second Update of the Day - Forums

Please be aware that we still have a LOT of broken stuff behind the scenes thanks to our hosting provider. Miles and miles of error messages, things that will not work at all, and so on. One of those things right this moment happens to be editing front page updates (hence the separate second post for the same day, instead of just an update to the original post). Then there is a ton of stuff you folks do not see, but I have been copying copious numbers of error messages into a list for poor Ngreth to chase down each and every error caused by code that is no longer compatible with the SQL version on the server. THEN there are the forums. Oh those poor forums. I think there may be ONE post on the entire forums, from August 2, that you MAY be able to still read. Everything else, well, it throws you to an unhelpful HTML error that does not tell us where the problem lies. Ditto for calendar entries. There may be one or two where you can read more than the title. Maybe. And while I was able to make that post on Aug 2, I now cannot make posts at all. Personally, I am ready to blow the forums totally out of the water due to lack of use. But they did have their uses, including the calendar. We can/may buy a forum upgrade for them (they are several versions behind), since the EQ side of things had already been upgraded and had far less forum issues than we are having. But there is no guarantee that it would fix our underlying forum problems. And it is uglier, and slower, and takes a lot of time to get re-configured into something useful (all based on what happened when we upgraded the EQ side), and that is a lot of extra hours for poor Ngreth, who is still chasing, line-by-line, error codes all over the sites.

tldr: there are lots of things still broken, including the forums. They are being worked on, but the forums especially are a problem child whose survival is up in the air.

August 14, 2018 - Fallen Gate - Events Turned Back On

This is for the Fallen Gate server only due to a bug that caused these events to partly misfire on FG. Kelethin City Festival and Moonlight Enchantments on Fallen Gate only have been turned back on and will run as follows:

  • Kelethin city festival is going on now through 8/21.
  • Moonlight Enchantments is going now through 8/16.
Need I mention, again, that this is only for Fallen Gate (where the events were broken). Yep, I still expect someone will misunderstand the message, but I tried! :D

August 13, 2018 - TS Adornment Change

The patch for tomorrow includes the following note:

The Nails tradeskill adornments will now only benefit level 110 tradeskillers, but can be applied to any level of equipment.
So, those new tradeskill adornments, from the Guk TS collection quest, will be available to ALL 110 crafters, not just level 110 crafters who are also 110 adventurers and also have 110 gear. I cannot test this yet, as it is not on the Test server as of this writing, but I will be keeping an eye on this one!

August 06, 2018 - Mostly Back

As many of you noticed, there were problems with our sites this past week due to our hosting provider making a mess. Our beloved House Ogre has done what he could to get basic functionality going once again, so at least folks can access articles and such. There are still some issues here and there on the EQ2 side and in the background (all but the single most recent post in the EQ2 forums are kaput, the EQ2 event calendar is kaput, site editing is ... creative), but at least the basics are there for us. Thanks for your patience during this frustrating time, and please let us know any error messages you trip over OTHER than the EQ2 forums and EQ2 calendar. ~Mum

August 01, 2018 - Upgrading Level 1-10 Ascension Spells

Now that illegible scrolls are more readily accessible, I needed a refresher on how to upgrade the darn things into ascension spells. From the sound of it, I am not alone, so I did some digging to refresh my memory.

Level 1-10 ascension spell drops are in the form of illegible scrolls, that then have to be converted into spells by a crafter. Some of the recipes to do so (Journeyman, Expert, Grandmaster and Ancient) are in scholar recipe books from KA, the other recipes (Adept, Master) are drops. (The PoP heroic adventuring weekly, for example, can drop the Adept and Master versions of the recipes.)

Journeyman recipes are in the "Bloody Tooth ____ Essentials" books, while the Expert, Grandmaster and Ancient versions are in the "Bloody Tooth Advanced ____" books. The crafting class breakdown is as follows:

  • Alchemist: Thaumaturgist
  • Jeweler: Geomancer
  • Sage: Etherealist and Elementalist

(For players trying to scribe them, you must update abilities in order -- to scribe an expert version, for example, you must have the adept version already in your knowledge book.)

As an unrelated side-note, the writeup on the Guk TS mission has been updated many, many times in the last 24 hours, and now includes a link to the EQ2U item information on the recipe book that is the reward for the red shiny collection in there.
