EZ will be going down briefly around 12PM CST for some brief updates / hardware upgrades in effort to give players the best possible experience

This work should take at most an hour and services should return within the window

Update: Under crazily rare coincidental circumstances; the datacenter is going through issues at the same time, making it difficult for me to push the changes through to move EZ's services or even restore services; I am waiting for the datacenter to restore some of their API services in order to get things back online

Update 1:12: Looks like some of their API services are starting to respond again and I should be able to start making moves here

Updates

  • Issue resolved where the world server was locking up periodically
  • Issue resolved where UA bracers were not being counted twice in Sleeper

Event

  • Doubles enabled
  • Halloween enabled

Enabled at least through the weekend, more specifics later

EDIT: We've been going on for almost two weeks now for the sake that everyone has been trapped at home, current festivities will end Monday noon. We will give it a break and regroup with something the next weekend

As promised and as anticipated, when we landed a successful update and transition we would do an event. I'm very happy with how the transition has gone after a tremendous amount of work and thank everyone who has helped get us through it, there are still things being followed up on but a majority of them are ironed out

Took a vote in game; between next weekend or this weekend, everyone chose this weekend so here it is.

Event Details (ACTIVE NOW - EARLY OPEN)

  • Halloween event enabled
  • Doubles
  • Event will be on-going until Monday 12 CST
  • (Stress testing) If we can push 1,000+ toons; we will do triple loot for the remainder of the time
  • (Stress testing) If we can push 1,400+ toons; we will do quad loot for the remainder of the time

Have a fun time and enjoy everyone!

Greetings everyone!

This update consists of two major elements, we're updating EZ to the past year and a half of EQEmulator code changes, most of which can be found here at EQEmulator's official change-log in more detail: https://eqemu.gitbook.io/changelog/years/2019

The other piece of this is that we have changed server hardware, the new server should be plenty robust and folks should notice quite a speed improvement when zoning and doing anything on the server. These speed improvements are both because of hardware and a LOT of performance optimizations made into the server code in recent years

The main parts of the code that had massive changes around them we had tested for two weeks on the test server

Notable Positive Updates

  • Improved zone times (3-4 seconds in most zones depending on zone size and your connection)
  • Improved server responsiveness across the board
  • Improved mob pathing, roam-box pathing, general mob pathing movement updates should be far smoother
  • Two additional top level inventory slots
  • Many stability improvements, crash fixes

Test Server Testing (Post Update)

  • Combat (damage should be improved if anything) Done
  • Factions, interactions with factions, quests in both T9 and T10 Done
  • Task functionality Done
  • Interaction with items Done
  • Expedition functionality Done

We had several people who were kind to donate their time to relieve a lot of the issue that did not make it to the day of the migration. These testers were Dimurwar, Ekiir, Tobin, Icestriker, Lillya, Samatron, Dracawarrior, Adoptedmonk, Xkan and a handful of others, my apologies if I'm forgetting others or if I mentioned you twice

Changelog (Post Update)

  • Fixed an issue where certain tasks were not progressing correctly due to task behavior changes in the code update
  • Fixed an issue regarding character factions as they had not been displaying properly due to the update
  • Resolved an issue where some characters were missing factions entirely
  • EZ Help Menu will now display when a player first connects initially
  • Nuwferus MacKilligan in T10 now additionally makes sure to see you have the hammer quest complete before attempting to make any armor combines for players
  • Fixed an issue with broken commands due to server update and backend code changes that broke command behavior
  • Fixed the Mask of the Illusionist command functionality

1-12-2020

  • Resolved an issue where aggro was not nearly responsive as it should have been when in direct aggro or social npc to npc proximity assist aggro
  • Resolved an issue where NPC's may not be exactly responsive to aggro when just entering a zone for the first few seconds (Reboot)
  • Resolved an issue with claim commands as a result of the update (Reboot)
  • Restored functionality to the website character mover

1-13-2020

  • Resolved an issue where folks would request too many unique zones simultaneously and get kicked back out falling from the sky - by increasing our dynamic standby processes

1-14-2020

  • Those who had issues with credits missing have had them restored since the migration
  • Gnoll assassins run-speed in T10 has been adjusted to be more inline with other mobs
  • Most in-game command should be fixed again, if any are remaining broke please post them in the 2020 update thread
  • Resolved an issue where freshly spawned NPCs may not behave correctly in terms of aggro

1-20-2020

  • Class Inks are now available on the Noobie Merchant
  • Removed class ink from all remaining loot tables
  • Fixed issues where Sleeper named were not operating under proper respawn times

Site Updates

  • Character browser has been update to point to the new server and we've also updated our version of Magelo to the most recent, so you should notice some improvements to the UI and display of character data. You may need to clear your cache in order to have things display correctly

We are currently in the process of addressing any issues in-game due to the transition, please respond in thread with any issues that you believe to be related to the transition and we will take a look at them one at a time. Once transition issues are settled there are plans to go through the Broken Stuff Repair Shop

Once we get past said issues and the dust has settled we should be able to get an event going for folks

If you are having character issues please send an E-Mail to ezserveronline@gmail.com

Thanks everyone for your patience ahead of time

For those who were online before the New Years, we did 5x loot for a few hours

We will now do Double Loot / Credits through Friday night to also double for as we make a transition onto a new server and go through a code update. Depending on how the code update goes we may extend through the entire weekend

Enjoy!

Strike Augments Insertion and Removal Overhaul

For years now we have had this NPC, now, no one likes this NPC
but everyone that uses a 2h weapon has been forced to use this
NPC.

Yes, that dreaded "That guy ate my augment and weapon" NPC in
The Nexus.

Well, no more! The foot has been put down and no more will we have
to bow down before this item eating NPC to insert strike augments
into weapons!

HOW?

I have created a separate yet identical strike augment for every
strike augment there is in the game. I have named them different
and they have different ID numbers, you can see an example of
this here...



Ok, great, but how do we get the new strike augments?

EASY I SAY!

We are going to use our trusty...



In it, put one of your strike augments and a new recipe component
item...



This new item can be purchased in Surefall Glade (QRG) for now
the Noobie Merchant sells it.

Then you take your new strike augment and put it in your 2hand
whatever weapon, then put a normal (old version) strike augment
into that weapon and BOOM, MAGIC! You can take them out and put
them in at will just like any other augment. 3000 IQ!

Now, if for some reason you want to change your augment back to
the old version, just reverse the process.

Any questions, or issues with this system please email me at
ezserveronline@gmail.com and put in the subject line:
Strike Augment Issue

On another note, the NPC in Nexus that does the shady item eating
will be changed and or removed soon as I know this system is understood
by all and used easily by all.

Thanks all

Greetings EZ Server Players!

The time for change has come for a mostly Forgotten class

~Ranger~

For some time now players have avoided playing Rangers, one of the reasons
is the Epic Augment. Currently the Ranger Epic Augment is only usable in
Bow Weapons.

But, remember when Ranger Epics used to look like this...




Well, we are going back in time and make this the norm again!

But how?

First off you will have to have take any Ranger Epic Augment, like this one...





Next you will need a Magic Box, everyone has that!



You will have to put your current Ranger Epic Augment into that Magic box, but
what do we combine it with?

one of these...




Wait a sec, we have never seen one of those drop in game, where do I get one
of these things?




Surely something in there will have one!

But, what do I end up with?




WOW! You mean I can use that in my 1h weapons? Both Primary and Secondary?
YES SIR!

Can I change back to the Bow usable Ranger Epic Augment? YES, you can. You will
just need to reverse the process, new version Ranger Epic Augment + Ranger
Epic Modification Element in your Magic Box.

What else do I need to do? Download the New Spell File, since this is a new
element of the game please download the new spell file from the
"Rent's EZ Server Files Test" link on the website. Before you replace your
spell file in your Everquest Folder please make a backup of that Spell File
and save it somewhere (always a good idea).

Thank you all that asked for this change (including myself lol) And thank
you for your patience in waiting on this change.

You have unwittingly opened the time rift and allowed me to enter your domain. I should thank you for this, but you are just a simple fool and knew not what your actions would bring. Do you know now what time it is? It is time for me to make an example of you for all this world to witness. Your lifeless corpse will hang from stakes, a reminder of how easily I can sweep your world's inhabitants aside.



"The disciples of Nexus report it has been engulfed in darkness and a spell has been casted upon it.
Meanwhile a strange rift has appeared..."

Every Tier has a new, unique mount added!

While none of the new mounts will be easy to find, some of these mounts will be easier to find than others.

Good Luck in advance, Collectors.....time to farm!

Hey everyone! I hope everyone has been well

I know folks are chomping at the bit to see some new content and I can assure you that there's been nothing in the way in terms of motivation but merely prevailing priorities in life. I will be working towards freeing up some bandwidth in the next month or two to make some things happen. Just some things to keep in perspective that EZ has been running for well over 10 years, EverQuest has been around for well over 20 years and has had an incredible run and continues to by individuals who keep it going on their "hobby" time

In the interim, we've decided to get some events going for you guys to super-charge progression and give you your "fix" in the meantime

Doubles

  • Double loot will be enabled through August 19th (Monday) Noon CST
  • Credits have been disabled for quite a few months but do to request I will open them up for a period of time (With doubles) (Until the 19th)

Halloween

  • Halloween is creeping around the corner but we've decided to run this event as well since everyone seems to request it repeatedly for obvious reasons. Halloween will run Thursday (August 15th) through the 19th (Monday) Noon CST

Have fun everyone!

A while back I was contacted about this spell and it's usage. I read the spell and agreed that it reads like it should be able to be cast on others.

What I had actually forgotten was that the spell was changed quite a while back to be self cast only for Clerics. At the same time Hunter put in the Divine Intervention reward item.

The spell itself, in our current game content is a tad overpowered, trivializing content thus making it difficult to produce meaningful content in the future. This gave melee % mitigation as well as the chance to come back to life after a death.

The decision was made for it to go back to being a Self Cast only spell for Clerics.

The EZ Server Administration Staff stands by this change and it will remain.

Thank you all.

Celebrating EverQuest's 20th Year Anniversary



"On March 16, 2019, EverQuest celebrates 20 years of active development. The high-fantasy free-to-play game, developed by Daybreak Games, continues to grow to-date with 25 expansions, over 1600 unique playable areas, 700+ raid events, 50,000 design scripts, and more than 3 million lines of code. To celebrate its 20th anniversary, we take a look at how EverQuest has inspired and revolutionized the MMORPG genre since 1999."

Good evening everyone! This game has been around for an absurd amount of time, but it has a never ending alluring effect that brings people back year after year.

To celebrate (albeit a little late) we're going to do something to kick things off

Double Loot / Credit
Now -> (April 1st 12PM CST)

Halloween Zone
Friday 29th -> (April 1st 12PM CST)

Double EXP
Friday 29th -> (April 1st 12PM CST)

T11 Development
We're also announcing that T11 is well underway and in the planning and design phases once again. We appreciate all of the input that has been given into the forum threads as of recent. Once plans are thoroughly solidified and mapped out we will be starting development which has been typically a fast process for us in the past

To solve a problem I have added new combinations to exchange your epic augments out.

In your Magic Box combine the following:

(1) Paladin Defensive Class Augment 10
(1) Star Ruby

And the Result will be:
 
(1) Paladin Healing Class Augment 10

As well In your Magic Box combine the following:

(1) Shadow Knight Offensive Class Augment 10
(1) Star Ruby

And the Result will be:

(1) Shadow Knight Defensive Class Augment 10

Both of these recipes will work in reverse as well, just add (1) Star Ruby to each combine.

So if you want to exchange either way on either class take the epic augment out and throw it in your Magic Box with a Star Ruby and you are good to go.

If you have any issues with these combines please send an email to: ezserveronline@gmail.com Please use the subject title: Epic Augment Exchange Problem!

NOTE: for now this only works with epic augment level 10 only. I will add the other tiers at another point.

Thanks all,
Enjoy

First of all I hope everyone is enjoying time with their families or friends this Holiday

We've been very very busy with doing things for our Holiday and put me sick all day yesterday so that is why we didn't have anything started yesterday

We're about to make our way out the door but I wanted to get something going for you guys in the meantime

For the next few days until an unspecified date time we will have Double EXP / Loot / Credits

Please be safe everyone

Have a Happy Thanksgiving everyone and please be safe and kind to each other

Edit: Since it is Black Friday it only makes sense to do Double Credits as well through the same time frame
