The Bookbinder, Rings, and Things

This past week has seen many changes. With the advent of GU 52, another questline opened, the Order of Rime (which I mentioned previously), Player-written books (with a quest for Sages) became available, and, today, the monthly “ring” event happened.

An Order of the Flame – To go.

I have spent a good majority of the time, since my last post, that I have been online trying to get that awesome looking flaming carpet. Unfortunately, due to the bug which prevents you from updating the Elemental Mystery questline, I haven’t been able to achieve the 50K Faction needed with the Order of the Flame (Not to be confused with the Order of the Blue Flame – which is something completely different and not associated with EQ2 in any way) in order to purchase it.

Meestah Lava Lava

As reported by Niami Denmother (aka Mum), over at EQ2Traders.com, there will be a lot of tradeskilling opportunities and changes in GU51.

Let me just give you a brief overview of the changes. If you want a more indepth coverage of the changes, click on Mum’s link above. Keep in mind that these changes are on the Test Server right now, and thus subject to change. Continue reading ‘Meestah Lava Lava’

Zam.com launches. Plus some news from Zam.com

As reported by Ogrebear over on Ogrebear’s Thoughts, Zam.com has launched.

Right now it seems they just have the frontpage, plus some news items for each MMO they cover. Clicking on the EQII link takes you to the EQII Allakhazam site.

Here are a couple of the news items I found on the Zam site:

  • According to Emily “Domino” Taylor, EQII Tradeskill Developer, players will no longer be able to craft No-Trade gear while the crafter possesses the No-Trade component. One of the results of this change is that crafters with the Void Shards will no longer be able to “sell” their shards by crafting the gear and supplying the Void Shards.
  • According to Jennifer “Kirstie” Gerull, EQII Mechanics Supervisor, a new feature will be coming for EQII: Research Assistants. The way that these will basically work is you will send a research assistant (RA) off to research the next upgrade for a spell. After a certain amount of time, the RA will return with your upgrade. While researching the Adept I version of a level 20 spell might take only an hour, researching the Master I version of a level 80 spell might take as long as, or longer than, a month. Additionally, you must have the previous version of the spell in order to receive the upgrade. In other words, to get a Master I version of a spell, you must already have scribed the Adept III version of the spell. However, there is no restriction on the source of the scribed version, so regardless whether you bought the Adept III that you scribed, had it provided by a friendly neighborhood sage, or got it from a RA, you can have the RA research the Master I version. Note that you can only have the RA research one spell at a time. Finally, there is no word at this time about when this feature will go live.

As soon as I know more, you’ll know more.

The passing of Heirlooms.

As posted by Niami Denmother over on EQ2Traders with the next update SOE will include the introduction of Heirloom Items.
Heritage Items are certain NO-TRADE items that may be traded between alts on the same account using the shared bank. Not all NO-TRADE items will receive the HEIRLOOM tag. Continue reading ‘The passing of Heirlooms.’
