_____________________

- /raid commands should now work appropriately.
- Added /decaycorpse command on The Combine and The Sleeper. You can now target and manually decay any of your own corpses that no longer have items on them. Please help us keep Norrath clean of unnecessary corpse litter.
- Fixed a bug that would cause ground items to not respawn appropriately.

OMG OMG, the 6 hours server down was really needed for this stuff...

Hey, let's just hope that they don't say, oh by the way, we nerfed the living hell out of monks as that we felt they did too much damage and have too many hit points.

They are fixing things, and not putting it in the update. There are lots of bugs being hummed and hawed over, that soe won't reconize so they can ninja fix em and not have to say we suck.

Just my opinion.

They always put in updates. And the last few have been some pretty bugged ones. Rashere always has some pet project in game he wants to tweak then he does it by chaging basic mechanics of the game and it screws over a ton of stuff and in the end still didn't do what he meant it to do.

I think there is a chance this time it won't happen though since the last 2 have been worse than avg for him.

I thought that they said in the last patch that they were going to change the hot zones in this patch... but maybe I just missunderstood someone's re-typed message.

Perhaps you misunderstood me. I know they always put in updates. Except always is kind of misleading. What I am saying is, they put 3 items on the update(update being the patch message) when there are numerous bugs that soe won't comment on, therefore not reconizing them as bugs. So that they can ninja(during updates or downtime) fix them without saying they were ever broken.

I don't know about anyone else, but my penis seems bigger after this patch. That wasn't in the patch message however and I ended up zipping the tip of it after peeing, since I wasn't aware of the size change. GD IT SOE!!

I would imagine so. Because of the fucking progression servers, they have to restrict hot zones to zones not currently available. Since Kunark is has now been opened on the progression servers (and will go live next weekish), the current hot spots (which are all in Kunark) will have to move.

/wonder where the hotzone are gonna be..
Siren's Grotto in the 55-60 range if its velious probly...

What the hell is that crap?! They fix some crappy progression servers, but won't fix the problem with the trial of lashing and that keeps me from getting my 1.5, Total bulls***

I always used a gnome if one was available. And if not, a ranger/bard.

Im stoked this went in since I am the one that came up with the idea on the beta forums heheh Only I called it /destroycorpse :shock:

I can tell you bellfast 3 has not. What was wrong with Dain 3? I have won and told people how to win 3-4 times in the last week.

Monks need to get Designate DT. Once per hour special move that gives our next DT, or using Dot Dt's our current DT to target PC.

So much fun to be had.

This has been fixed but is waiting QA's approval before going live. No ETA.

Well, I had really thought that Dain 3 wasn't 'broken', but apparently it did get stealth changed from when I last did it in the beginning of the month. The Dev that designed the encounter talks extensively about the changes in this thread from the EQ boards.

So does this mean that it's going live late on the 19th or early thursday morning? If so, it's 11pm PST on the 20th and i'm ready to do that trial. I guess i'll log in and find out.

Can't zone in. At all.

It's been broken in some form or another for a couple months now, but recently went from needing luck and hoping the server loaded right in order to win, to being flat impossible to complete since you cant even attempt it.

Dain 3 has been fixed, the problem before was that the dorfs would wander back after killing a mob and it was impossible to keep them fighting.

Thats been sorted (even though some do still wander off) and its straightforward now with the right strat.
Did this 3 times in a row with a win each time.

Enjoy it while you can.
