- - Non-restless NPCs will now depop much more quickly. Note that the drolvargs and skeletons must be aggro to have a chance to depop.

Increased the resist modifier so that this line now lands more reliably. Removed the recast timer on the spell line.

- Necromancer - The Swift Venom line of Damage Over Time spells no longer stacks with itself or with the Corath Venom line of spells. It now deals the same amount of damage every tick that the equivalent Corath Venom spell would do. It no longer deals different amounts of damage to raid targets. Increased the resist modifier to make the line land more reliably. Removed the recast timer from this spell line.

- Necromancer - The Eranon's Decay line of spells no longer scales with your level and instead reaches full potency the first level they are available. Reduced the duration by two ticks. Increased the damage and mana cost but removed the ability for the spell line to stack with itself.

- Necromancer - The Swift Sickness line of spells now deals the same amount of damage per tick as the Eranon's Decay spell of the same level range, with the same mana efficiency. Increased the resist modifiers so spells will now land more reliably. The spell line will no longer deal different damage to different targets. The spell line will no longer stack with itself and will be overwritten by the equivalent Eranon's Decay spell. Removed the recast time from this spell line.

- Necromancer - The Grip of Mori line of spells will no longer stack with itself above level 67. Damage and mana cost have been increased.

- Necromancer - Changed Ilsaria's Swift Decay and Mourgis' Swift Decay so that they now trigger spells from the Grip line in addition to the Decay line. Changed the names to Livianus' Grip of Decay and Mourgis' Grip of Decay.

- Changed the weight reduction property of Minandra's Scent Marker spell to no longer reduce your weight. You actually did gain weight but we were too nice to tell you. This was wrong and we will be more honest with you in the future.

*** Overseer ***

Hail Norrathians,

It's hard for us to fathom that it's been 21 years since this grand adventure began The myriad lands and challenges you’ve all completed have brought us an incredible sense of awe time and time again. We couldn't be happier to share another year with all of you and can't wait to see what the next year brings.
We've got some great things in store for the anniversary, some of you’re already experiencing, such as our new Overseer feature and the Veteran AA rewards. We still have a few things we'd like to discuss below as we enter our 21st year, including our annual 50% bonus experience event, which will be from March 16, 2020 12 AM PDT to April 1, 2020 at 1 AM PDT.

New TLP server news?

Yeah, we got that. We are incredibly excited to announce the names and general rule set info for the TWO new TLP servers we will be launching in the coming months. Please put your hands, paws, and claws together for Aradune and Rizlona! Aradune is a new concept for our Truebox server rule set. It's going to have similarities to Mangler's rule set in terms of XP, era locking, and a lot more. Rizlona will also share the Mangler rule set and be our first boxing progression server in a long time. More specific rule sets and how they will function differently than the current TLPs will be shared in the coming weeks!

Heroic Level 85 Character Boost

Ready to try out a new class, want to make a home on a different live server? We're giving all All Access Members a free Heroic Level 85 Character Boost to celebrate our birthday. Start a new life in a new home, or just try something new on your current one. You'll be able to claim the bauble from March 16 through May 10!

Server Merges

To prepare you and your characters for the universal shift, we wanted to let you know what servers are on the list. We don't want anyone getting the matter in their bodies all mixed up, that can get messy.
Lockjaw -> Ragefire
Trakanon -> Vox
Fippy -> Vox
Brekt -> FV

Player Designed Anniversary Quests!

We love the ideas we've gotten from players over the years. The development team worked to implement two player-designed quests that were submitted at Fan Faires over the years.

- Evolving items with the Claim Reward button cannot be claimed until all augments are removed from the item in addition to any other requirements that are present.
- Added AC to the guild tribute Aura of Preservation 14.
- The Claim the Item spells attached to various Iksar, Half Elf, and Dark Elf Heritage Crate items no longer have a spell description that suggests that you will receive a familiar.

- - On progression servers, these abilities will continue to unlock starting with Dragons of Norrath up through Veil of Alaris.


*** NPCs ***

- Sporali in Hills of Shade will no longer cast Chattering Bones XXII.
- Restless Ice Infection now has a longer duration, instead of re-casting itself every six seconds.


*** Overseer ***

- Become the Overseer! Gain the loyalty of iconic Agents and protect Norrath from the ever-present ripples of Discord. Send your Agents on harrowing Overseer Quests, into moments spanning the entirety of Norrath's history, and restore balance where you can. Along the way, you'll gain fabulous rewards and grow in power. You may even draw the attention of Norrath's most famous heroes, and perhaps a few particularly nefarious villains. Do you have what it takes to gain the allegiance of Norrath's elite?
- Access the Overseer interface via the EQ Menu > Quests > Overseer option, or by entering the command /overseer.
- A mysterious presence in the Plane of Knowledge is interested in the coin gained through Overseer Quests.


*** Progression Servers ***

- Fixed the requirements on the door from Drachnid Hive to Dreadspire. Once Secrets of Faydwer has been unlocked for a month, level 70+ characters can access the zone without needing a key.


*** Miscellaneous ***

- Added the /shownpcnames command which toggles npc names on and off like the Option Window checkbox.
- In the guild bank, if you try to set an item to be withdrawable by Single Member and that character doesn't exist, the item will now be set to Public If Usable.
- - If the character gets deleted or transferred to another server, the permissions for that item will also get set to Public If Usable.
- Increased the experience bonus for having other players (not mercenaries) in your group.
- Increased the amount of AA experience you get in groups of 4 or more and raids of 13 or more.
- Fixed the spelling of the bartender's name on the map in Timorous Deep.
- Fast Camping can now be done within guild halls.
- The surname command now allows the use of a second capital letter and a single accent character.
- Fixed a crash that could occur when trying to shroud while on a mount.
- Made the following changes to dynamic zone event replay timers:
- - When zoning into a dynamic zone you will now be given an event replay timer for each event that has been completed since the zone was launched.
- - You will not be given replay timers for any event that was already completed when the zone was launched.
- - If you already have an existing replay timer for an event completed since instance launch, your timer will not be modified.
- - You will receive a warning containing the list of replay timers you will incur upon zoning into the DZ when you are invited to join the DZ.
- - You will not be able to loot items off of raid bosses or chests associated with the completion of an event if your replay timer was not received from this instance of the DZ.
- Changed the way Resurrection Sickness works. It no longer reduces stats. It will now increase the cast time of detrimental spells by 10% and decrease your attack speed by 10%. Both of these values will stack with other spells rather than preventing haste or spell haste effects.
- Changed the way the PvP version of Resurrection Sickness works. The cast time increase and attack speed decrease have the same values, but these effects will stack with other spells rather than preventing haste or spell haste effects.
- Changed the way Revival Sickness works. It no longer caps mana and endurance at 4000. Instead it caps at 25% and slowly decreases the cap by 1% every 5 levels starting at 50. For example, the cap at level 85 is 18% and the cap at level 115 is 12%.
- Improved how the guild message of the day is stored.
- Improved how fellowship member names are stored.
- Accessing Dreadspire, Meldrath's Mansion, and Crystallos should no longer refuse entry the first time until you wait or relog.
- Plane of Knowledge is now listed as a destination of type Priest of Discord from Dranik's Scar in the Zone Connection Guide. This will not always be the destination that the Priest of Discord will send you to, but it should be more correct than the guide not showing a way back to Norrath.


*** UI ***

- Corrected an issue that prevented weapon ornaments that can be placed in all slashing, blunt, or piercing weapons from displaying their slot restriction information in the item inspect window.
- If you zone with the Rewards window open, the rewards now display properly, and no longer require you to close and open the window to see the rewards you have pending.
- Fixed the neighborhood window to always display the name of the guild in the guild plot section.
- The Quest Journal quest selections will now persist through opening and closing the window and zoning.
- Rewards that have a stackable item as one of the reward choices will have a number indicating how many of that item you will receive if the amount is greater than 1.
- Fixed an issue with the Rewards Window where selected rewards could become deselected.
- You can no longer modify the compensation for items or toggle items on and off while barter buyer mode is on. In order to make modifications you will need to exit barter buyer mode.
