*** AA ***

- All - AA abilities that allow characters to escape combat have been retuned to provide a more consistent experience. Now, rather than some classes' escape abilities relying on level limits and variable success chances, all AA escape abilities will have a 100% chance to succeed on opponents up to 5 levels above the caster, they will trigger their secondary invisibility or sanctuary buffs regardless of proximity to attackers, and they will reduce the amount of hatred any NPC the caster fails to escape from by 1 million points. These abilities will now have higher reuse times and resource costs for most classes, as this better reflects our vision for these abilities.

- All - AA abilities that allow characters to leap forward have been normalized with improved reuse times, distances, new abilities for some classes, and reduced level and expansions to obtain:
- - Bard - Increased the distance that Lyre Leap allows you to travel from 160 to 315 feet.
- - Beastlord - Reduced the level required to purchase Cheetah's Pounce and made the ability available in Underfoot.
- - Berserker - Changed all ranks of Furious Leap function like other leap abilities rather than relying on applying force to the caster. The reworked ability will now allow you to travel up to 234 feet forward. Reduced the initial reuse time of this ability from 60 seconds to 40 seconds and modified ranks 2-5 to reduce the reuse time by 5 seconds per rank rather than 10 seconds per rank, resulting in the final rank matching the existing reuse time of 20 seconds.
- - Cleric - Added the ability Holy Step available at level 85 in Underfoot which allows you to teleport forward by 160 feet every 20 seconds.
- - Druid - Reduced the initial reuse time of Mistwalk from 30 to 20 seconds and made rank 1 available at level 85 in Underfoot.
- - Enchanter - Added the ability Phantasmal Step available at level 85 in Underfoot which allows you to teleport forward by 160 feet every 20 seconds.
- - Monk - Reduced the initial reuse time of Neshika's Blink from 30 seconds to 25 seconds, made rank 4 available in House of Thule, made rank 5 available in Veil of Alaris, and removed ranks 6-10.
- - Necromancer - Increased the distance that ranks 1-6 of Whisper Step allows you to travel from 234 to 315 feet.
- - Paladin - Reduced the level required to purchase ranks 2-7 of Leap of Faith and made ranks 6-7 available in Rain of Fear.
- - Ranger - Reduced the level required to purchase ranks 2-6 of Gladestrider's Leap, made ranks 2-4 available in House of Thule, and made ranks 5-6 available in Rain of Fear.
- - Rogue - Added new ranks 1 and 2 to Whisper Step at level 85 in Underfoot and 87 in House of Thule making the current rank 1 into rank 3 thereby reducing the final reuse time of this ability from 30 seconds to 20 seconds, increased the distance that all ranks allow you to travel from 104 to 234 feet, and made the final rank of this ability available in Rain of Fear.
- - Shadowknight - Reduced the level required to purchase ranks 2-4 and 6-7 of Hate Step and made ranks 6-7 available in Veil of Alaris.
- - Shaman - Reduced the level required to purchase Spirit Leap and made the ability available in Underfoot.
- - Warrior - Changed all ranks of Furious Leap function like other leap abilities rather than relying on applying force to the caster. The reworked ability will now allow you to travel up to 234 feet forward. Reduced the initial reuse time of this ability from 60 seconds to 40 seconds and modified ranks 2-5 to reduce the reuse time by 5 seconds per rank rather than 10 seconds per rank, resulting in the final rank matching the existing reuse time of 20 seconds.
- - Wizard - Increased the distance that Netherstep allows you to travel from 160 to 315 feet and added 2 additional hastening ranks bringing the final reuse time down to 10 seconds at level 95.
- Multiple - AA abilities that reduce that chance that your root spells will break (ex: Druid - Enhanced Root, Enchanter - Clinging Root, etc.) will now only apply that improvement to root spells cast by that caster. Previously, when a caster with one of these abilities would cast a root spell, the improved break chance would apply to 'all' root spells on that target.
- Bard - Corrected an issue with rank 43 of Boastful Bellow that caused the maximum level target that can be stunned to go down to 106 rather than up to 109.
- Enchanter - Increased the effectiveness of rank 17 of Gather Mana from 37,000 instant mana and 750 mana regeneration for 1 minute to 40,000 instant mana and 1,000 mana regeneration for 1 minute.
- Magician - Refunded all ranks of Intrinsic Efficiency, which was intended to be done when ranks 13-15 and 19-21 of Conjurer's Efficiency were consolidated.
- Necromancer - Refunded all ranks of Intrinsic Efficiency, which was intended to be done when ranks 2-7 of Embalmer's Efficiency were consolidated.
- Shadowknight - Refunded all ranks of Intrinsic Efficiency, which was intended to be done when ranks 2-7 of Embalmer's Efficiency were consolidated.
- Paladin - Hand of Tunare - Increased the number of counters on this ability to 20 to account for the fact that a successful twinheal focused with the mana penalty will consume 2 charges per cast. Reduced the duration of the ability from 6 minutes to 5 minutes and reduced the reuse time of the ability from 18 minutes to 15 minutes. Updated the ability so that the healing component of your Denouncement and Valiant Deflection line of spells will continue to be twincast but the initial mana cost of these spells will be increased to compensate.
- Wizard - Ranks 1-5 of Mirror Mirror now increase the resist modifier of the reflected spell by 20 points per rank.


*** Miscellaneous ***

- When sending and receiving tells using tell windows, the messages logged to the log file now match the messages when not using tell windows.
- /pick will now send players and group members to the evac point of a zone.


*** UI ***

- Fixed a crash that can occur when there are multiple entries for the same ChatWindowX_ContainterIndex saved in the UI configuration file. This should help in some of the cases where you had to delete your ini files in order to login.
- Corrected a crash bug from moving a tab left of Main Chat.
- Removed some no longer used UI elements from the Marketplace window.
- When using Search in the Barter Window, the results will only display the most expensive buy line from each buyer per unique item matched from the search.
- When searching for items in both the Bazaar Search Window and Barter Window, results over the transaction cap (2000000 platinum), will not be displayed.
- Fixed a bug where you could not disable tribute benefits when running out of favor.

How long does it usually take them to update so MQ2 for the test server? I'm getting the error "MQ2 expected eqgame Date and Time to be Sep 9 2019 15:22:59 But eqgame's Date and Time is: Oct 7 2019 19:45:36 Do you need to patch one of them? Loading of MQ2 can not be completed."

Well after what 5 months they finally get to it.

- /pick will now send players and group members to the evac point of a zone.
Oh ffs. (at least this now gives tlp people something to moan about except the bazaar)

You really really cannot have listings for more than 2Mil

That has to be to keep people from using /pick to keep more PH'ers down. No other reason.
at least that was the biggest complaint on TLP servers by players and in most cases the standard suggestion "just move them to succor".
It's just interesting that they change that NOW - years after the complaints were raised.

Although it can be easily used for faster travel now in zones like sirens' grotto ... just /pick and you are at the exit close to WW. (given that there must be at least another instance up)

lol, which again, is maybe an advantage for the TLPs. I've never seen more than 1 other character in SG... even if they're just moving across to WW.

This is a stupid change... and again... an issue that's not really an issue.

!!!!!!!!! This sounds like it means every NPC but quest ones will give xp. Doesn't really matter though. You dont want to kill the gnomes crap anyway because you will be kos to npcs near the zone in for the task and get killed when requesting it.

Sort of you are right - sort of you are not :-)
I cannot even recount how many complaints we got due to folks using /pick to keep PHs down in several instances. (got a bit better once they implemented the cooldown)
So on the TLP servers I think it will make the average player more happy while getting others more grumpy (or just adding accounts to the crew to occupy more picks).

In general I can only see this change tailored towards TLP servers.
