I feel like ToL going ftp should be in the highlights section, not in misc!!

I'm glad to see changes that give clearer information to the user. Not sure about the change to the rogue backstab angles of attack, was it allowing you a wider angle to backstab than intended?

I hope the rendering artifacts change corrects the texture problems that show up with campfires and the way the stone looks in the Lceanium.

i'd wager being test first its the way it is on Live most likely it will be a highlight .

Kinda cool
 
- Cleric/Druid/Enchanter/Magician/Wizard - Updated the Archetype AA, Improved Twincast, all ranks, to count down in safe zones and guild halls.
- Necromancer - Updated the Class AA, Heretics Twincast, all ranks, to count down in safe zones and guild halls.

rip banner burns lol
 
My biggest gripe about this patch is that they unlocked the caster type 3 augs from the anniversary... Seriously I know a few of you went and got them all, but why do it AFTER the quest is now gone...
 
I don't know why, but this one made me laugh:

- Tides of Time, Year of Darkpaw - Oasis of Sand - The NPCs should no longer attack players during zone-in. They should wait until players take their first step into the room.

Could this really be categorized as "fixed"?
 
Don't know about anybody else but I'm calling bullshit on this...

"- The Terror of Luclin expansion is now free-to-play on Test and Live servers."

Tried zoning on 6 chars in 2 live servers via guild portal, wizard, druid...tried going over cap of 115 with overseer and grinding and got bounce back messages on ftp accounts saying we didn't have the expansion...

This is not ftp right now on live servers
 
It looks like the augs from the anni mission - if you already had the others - are still lore equipped. Not sure if I need to delete and get the new ones but will test it out later!
 
When I initially read "- The Terror of Luclin expansion is now free-to-play on Test and Live servers." I completely ignored the mention of it being on live. I figured it would go live when the corresponding patch went to live. I looked in the EQ forums, no one seems to mention the discrepancy. It's mostly about banner burning and extra buff slots.

I agree, its just badly worded/unclear. But most likely intended as normal, its available now on Test and will be active on LIVE on the 19th patch day.

Yeah I had the same thought and almost posted something. I ended up deciding it was just lazy writing so they don't have to update the message for test and live.

Did you miss the fact that this is a thing on live as of next Wednesday??
 
Lol, I had a similar experience as some of you guys, I tried to zone my druid in, then even closed and relaunched, then looked at sics original post again, it's literally in the title and I missed it, (11th test, 19th live).

Knave23 even said boo patch on holidays. Lol, did not click.

It’s not the patch dates that are confusing, it’s the patch notes. If it had just said ToL is now f2p then my first thought is it’s on where this patch is, but the fact that they called out test and live in the test patch notes made me think they just flipped the switch for everybody and the patch itself was irrelevant.
