EverQuest 2: Live update 41 on test E-mail
Monday, 10 December 2007
EQ2 Live Update 41 is now online on the test server. The patch introduces the new concept of Achievement Profile, which lets you "save" your archivement points configuration for later, and finally puts an end to the lame level 20 locking on PvP servers introducing XP gains for each PvP kills even when the XP gains are locked.



EVERQUEST 2: LIVE UPDATE 41 preliminary patch notes

FROSTFELL

Happy Frostfell, Norrath!   Visit the Gigglegibbers Gh'lad Tydingz and G'shugahplum in South Freeport, North Qeynos, Kelethin, Neriak or Gorowyn for some holiday quests and the chance to earn a Frostfell tree and wreath.

Enter the Magic Closet in Qeynos Harbor, West Freeport, Haven, Kelethin, Neriak or Gorowyn to travel to the Frostfell Wonderland Village.

Here you can gather presents to craft wondrous Frostfell goodies, see if reindeer really know how to fly, purchase Frostfell goods, and even assist Mr. McScroogle and Queen Bunny with some important tasks.

Don't forget to log in each day and claim your extra-special Frostfell present from everyone's favorite Frostfell elf Gardy Giftgiver!

GAMEPLAY

  • Adventurers have recently discovered strange, reflective shards in various of the more dangerous dungeons around Norrath. After intensive research and experimentation, Norrath's tradeskill societies have discovered a way to work this magical metal into a mirror with unique, soul-capturing abilities. 
  • High level crafters in good standing with their respective tradeskill societies will be able to acquire this recipe from their city's local tradeskill faction merchant.
  • You can now store an Achievement Profile in your home, using a device crafted from a primary component obtained in high level dungeons.  You can store one profile per device, and they are usable from within your own home. 
  • The finished device cannot be traded and will need to be crafted using the commission crafting system if you are not yourself a high level crafter.  (See the tradeskills forum for reminders on how commission crafting works.)
  • Linguists of Norrath, rejoice! The militaristic language of the Gorowyn sarnak, Gorwish, is now available for purchase! Check with a nearby language vendor to see if they have managed to find the new Gorwish Language Primer.
  • You can now resist the damage done by most lava.  Be careful!  Some areas of lava may be more potent than others
  • Coin, status and faction quest rewards are now given immediately when a quest is complete rather than waiting for the quest reward to be accepted
  • Chests containing items less than Fabled will no longer appear exquisite, even when they do have Fabled-quality coin rewards.
