I think they actually stealth added this stuff awhile ago. I've been seeing them for a bit and didn't realize some of it was new/not on live.

But, yes, there is currency up to ToL and power sources up to Velium.

The currency costs 700 for all expansions. The power sources are 12,500 for Velium. Older ones are cheaper.

EDIT: Comparing the lists now, I see a couple other things:

Dream Mote - 3000
Fragment of Legendary Alaran History - 10,000

When requesting from other toons, it checks the trade flag already, so.. nothing to do?

Grats to them :)

Does the autofill thing (assuming it works) make the overseer macro obsolete?
No. You'd still have to run overseer on each toon, collect all the rewards manually, etc. Still a total pain for more than a couple toons. I gave it a go on test and it's pretty fast, but managing overseer as a whole is still a very click intensive process.

I suspect @GoldenFrog will try to use the autofill functionality in overseer just to speed up the process, but don't want to speak for him.

Either way, I'll be using the overseer lua for the foreseeable future.

Wait it is 350,000 for 500 xpac currency? I guess if I’m short 50 from my next Aug it is a bit of some help.

You are correct, @naamloseeen.

This new functionality means it's two-clicks to run a quest:
  • Click on a quest on the left
  • Click [Auto-Fill]
This removes approx. 4-8 more clicks per-quest currently, along with probably some mouse-scrolling, if doing by hand.

This should dramatically cut the duration of a standard Overseer run, whether scripted or manual.

1. Oh Happy Day !
2. Maybe thats why an 'increase' of Tetra's to buy stuff from Overseer Merchant.
3. Sic is still right..."Why do they automate this" /giggle

Actually, just had a thought what if you could use this as a currency exchange.
Wonder if you will be able to sell your old currency to get tetra and then buy the newer currency?

This is my first patch since using VV. Anything specific I need to do? Once EQ patches, do I need to patch MQ? Sorry for the noob question.

I love this. I've finally got Tradeskill Depot to a very usable state. I put one each of the cut tools (i.e. Round Cut Tool), Smithing Hammer, etc... in there. I know it takes up a full space where 4k other things can...

...but it means 99% of the time I can tradeskill anything without going to the bank. Only when crafting something for the first time is it necessary. I have backups in the bank for those times.

I have houses for 80% of my TS materials - and Depot has those things I use regularly. Current expansion materials (i.e. Ore, Topaz), common items like Spider Silk, etc.

Now I can add Jeweler's Glass and Etching Tools to that list. The last tools (I think) in that state.

To get the level 40 achievements on Vaniki you can "technically" be 41. They did this so if you accidently leveled up to 41 it wouldnt ruin the achievement for everyone else.

But everyone is just going to do them at lvl 41 now lmao

Looks like there was a stealth change to the "Mean Streets" mission. The fake Jakarashev had their HP boosted. It is now a little over 77M HP. Made things definitely more challenging on getting all 3 fakes dead before engaging the real one. Had him swap once before I had the 3rd fake dead. Pre-patch, they would always melt in seconds due to Mage DS. Not the case anymore.
