Question - "What Should I expect on Patch Day?" (1 Viewer)

Hi all,

I used the search function with keywords "patch day" and did not see much except patch notes so I thought I would put up this thread for new folks so we can set expectations accordingly.

I realize that the folks here at Red Guides need to assess the code and check interactions with the EQ Client but overall I was hoping Red Guides veterans could share past experiences so that we newer Red Guides members have a feeling as to what to expect. For example:

1) Do patches make VV totally unusable?
2) What has typically been broken in the past?
3) etc etc

I realize no one has a crystal ball so to predict exactly what will go wrong is impossible. I just wanted to start an open conversation/dialogue regarding patch day past experiences,

Be well. Happy gaming.

yes. when eq patches MQ has to be rebuilt.

once mq is built RG can build - we usually try and test stuff first.

eq could change literally everything requiring any and everything to be rebuilt but usually not the case. it is normally just offsets, sometimes struct changes --- with the large changes eq has been making over the past few months (updates and backend improvements) there are more things than just offset changes that are happening, so it can certainly be a lot of work for the devs.


Curious when Very Vanilla will be updated? You'll get a web notification (if we have permission), site notification, and email (optional)
