SOE decided to give all the EQ2X players the chance to try out the Velious beta and provide feedback, which meant moving all the beta forums to the EQ2X forums, in the process they managed to make the beta forums appear to absolutely everyone for a brief period, and EQ2Flames dev tracker is now full of beta info.

Read it and weep. It's the end of this game as we know it, and I don't feel fine.


Quote:
TARGET TAGGING SYSTEM

You can now tag NPCs and even PCs with the new Target Tagging System.

* Characters can be assigned an icon and number combination that your group or raid can use to easily communicate tactics.
* Press CTRL-SHIFT-T or right-click your Target window and choose "Tag" to open the Tagging interface.
* You must be in a group to tag characters.
* Tagging commands can be dragged from the Tag window directly to a hotbar, or assigned a hotkey from the Options->Controls->Tagging menu.
* Tagging icons can also be disabled under Options->User Interface->Name & Chat Bubble
* Tagging can also be done via macro by using the /tagtarget command:
* /tagtarget icon - to tag your target with a specific icon
* /tagtarget number - to tag your target with a numeric value
* /tagtarget clear - to clear your target's tag


NEW GRAPHICS OPTIONS

In the options under Display – Special Effects you will find the following graphics settings:
Depth of Field

* Applies a focus range to the rendered scene. Objects in the distance and too close will appear slightly blurry.

Ambient Occlusion

* Darkens cracks and crevices where lighting would naturally dissipate.

Sun Shafts

* Rays of light will shine from the sun.




COMBAT

* Extended auto-attack range from 2 to 5 meters.




ATTRIBUTES

* Agility and Intelligence no longer grant a bonus to critical mitigation.
* Agility no longer provides a bonus to avoidance.
* Wisdom no longer gives a bonus to Arcane, Noxious and Elemental resists.
* The formulas for maximum health and maximum power have been altered. The formulas are:
o Max Health = (base health for class and level) + stamina * health per stamina point
o Max Power = (base power for class and level) + primary attribute(str, wis, int, agi) * power per attribute point

ABILITIES / ALTERNATE ADVANCEMENT

* Spells that are modified by AAs to get additional effects will have that additional effect’s tier determined by the AA rather than by the tier of the spell that it is modifying.

Bards

* Victorious Concerto can no longer crit or be modified.

ITEMS

* Call of the Veteran: Teleporting or summoning a character forces the traveling character to meet the same entry requirements the destination character had to meet to enter the zone.
* Removing an item with “Focus: Holy Armor VII” on it will now remove the “Holy Armor VII” buff

what does agility and wis do for fighters now then :|

@jamble7k
Nothing, as far as I know. They also removed weight from the game, it seems, as it is no longer displayed in the character sheet. Pretty much, the only 2 stats that matter right now are your archetype's primary attribute, and stamina (for health). Horrible changes, IMO. Health (stamina) is also being changed. From what I understand, it's now a flat rate, and the amount depends on your class, if I recall correctly.

This game is getting dumbed down so much it's not even funny. Have fun comparing gear scores if you keep playing, I think I'm going to go find something else to play.

This blog post explains why gear score is a bad thing and what it has evolved to in WoW.

Quote:
people would usually state a minimum gearscore when organising groups


That's not the kind of game I want to play.

WIS will not change your resists anymore, STR will not determine how much you can carry (since nothing weighs anything anymore), AGI will not change how well you avoid melee attacks. In short, only your primary stat and sta will matter for anything. And none of the 1-89 gear will be changed to reflect this, of course. As a friend said, "At this rate we'll just have one stat called "Awesome"."...

nah, there will be one stat, it'll be called "e-peen", and there will be a growth meter in the UI for it.

Of course, to see it, you'll have to pay $29 in Smegbucks.

So we're now going into day 3 that EQ2 has been down - with some reports saying they expect to have "all services restored by the end of May".

And since the people at SOE aren't talking much, kinda makes me wonder if there's really a point in waiting for it to come back up, or just time to call that one a wrap and move on to something else.

It's been 5 months since I logged in but I'm still feeling sad about what's going on. Hope they can sort it out as fast as possible.

I went and changed my passwords, and found that my accounts had 45 days of free playtime, so I logged in to see how bad it was.

Guess what, it's been over half a year since the server mergers and I still can't edit or copy the player written books I wrote.

/sad
