November 06, 2018 - Network Issues

Daybreak is having network issues. It is impacting their website as well as all Daybreak games. They are working on it and there is currently no ETA. If you have already patched today, you can try using the workaround of going straight through the exe file, instead of the launcher but be aware things may still be wonky.

March 10, 2018 - Tradeskillers be wary!

There is a bug currently in EQ as it relates to tradeskills. Items that have previously been returned on failure are no longer guaranteed to be returned, but may be returned as part of salvage. You run the risk of losing things like Gem Cutters, Jewelers Glass, Corking Devices, etc. if you fail a recipe. This is scheduled to be corrected in the next patch which should be happening soon.

There are several threads that discuss this problem on the EverQuest forums.

The primary bug thread can be found here.

February 21, 2018 - Patch Day - February 21, 2018

We don't know exactly how long this patch will be yet, but servers will be down for patching today.

Here are some excerpts of the patch notes.

Update notes can be located here.

*** Highlights ***

  • Fixed several problems with Ring of Scale items. See the Items section below for details.
  • Many UI features are no longer expansion restricted on Progression Servers including but not limited to: clicking items from bags, bandolier, blocking spells, and the quest journal.

***Items***

  • Ring of Scale unique edible foragables have had the tradeskill flag removed.

*** Tradeskills ***

  • Salvage can now return all items that were used in the recipe regardless of how many items the recipe returns on failure. For example: failing to create a Conflagrant Fish Scale Sheet can now return between two and ten Conflagrant Fish Scale Swatches instead of just two.
  • Changed the name of Conflagrant and Phlogiston Katar to Conflagrant and Phlogiston Claws. Renamed the appropriate recipes. Added the proper offhand look and modified the book Weapon and Shields of Combination to mention claws instead of a katar.
