  1. Update on the newest expansion info for live servers: Everquest: Ring of Scale continues the Empires of Kunark look into old expansion favorite of Kunark. It appears Venril Sathir is back guarding a tomb of gold or something... and Gorowyn (the EQ2 sarnak city) will be making an appearance now. Plus... anyone logging in on an all access account gets a new free illusion: https://www.everquest.com/news/eq-producers-letter-2017-expansion-news
  2. Double EXP?

    Yep... It's official, posted on the site. Probably won't be able to utilize a lot of it myself, but I'll be trying tomorrow night I think.
  3. Let's Play: Where Did I Die?

    *whistles innocently*
  4. Ngreth mentioned in General the other day something that indicated experience rate would go from 'very low' to 'low'. Mepps, Senior Community Manager, responded to a question about this on the forums to indicate that at certain expansions, the EXP rate will increase somewhat, similar to experience rate increases that occurred periodically during these coming expansions. So... long story short - EXP will get slightly better during Gates of Discord! Yay!
  5. Test Patch Notes (5-9-17)

    Interesting they fixed the skullcap Multi-questing... HUGE that the fixed Druid/Shaman DoTs finally... A fix to improper replay timer bugs? yay! Agnarr is getting 'thematic' changes to their Agents of Change? Soooo... they're not all gonna be fish-men? Probably picking a random NPC from inside the encounter and using it to be the model, so a Kobold for Nagafen, Ice Goblin for Vox, Phinigel will probably stay the same... Maybe a Bee for Sky... This seems like an odd change, along with the choice to go back to old world models for lots of NPCs. Must be sort of themed to encourage some of the p99 players to jump ship.
  6. The John Stamos Art Thread

    Perhaps a screen cap from Full House with Stamos (Blinky) reading a bedtime story to Michelle (Bodegas) or something along that lines
  7. The John Stamos Art Thread

    So... Riot Fest in Chicago has just announced they are going to hold a John Stamos themed Art show. http://riotfest.org/2017/04/greatest-john-stamos-art-show/ This punk fest never ceases to amaze me. But it got me to thinking that this would be an excellent theme topic for an intra-guild image contest. Lets see who can come up with the most awe-inspiring John Stamos themed works of photoshop glory. Dogwizard, I expect greatness from you in particular.
  8. New Forum Ranks

    For clarification... What are all of the current rankings now and post count levels for those rankings?
  9. Test Update 4-12-2017

    - - The hold-right click menu for combat skill hot buttons now has an 'Auto Activate' toggle to enable/disable the automatic activation of these skills.- - The slash command /autoskill can also be used to toggle the automatic activation of these skills.
  10. Test Update 4-12-2017

    I mean... my hands will probably appreciate me not spam-firing the commands any more, but yeah, this is a weird addition.
  11. Test Update 4-12-2017

    Wait.... what? - Added the ability for level 61 and higher level players to automatically activate basic combat skills (Backstab, Bash, Frenzy, Kick, Tiger Claw, etc) while auto-attacking: - - 1. The hold-right click menu for combat skill hot buttons now has an 'Auto Activate' toggle to enable/disable the automatic activation of these skills. - - 2. The slash command /autoskill can also be used to toggle the automatic activation of these skills. Are you saying Monks and Rogues can sortof AFK-Autofire like Rangers now?
  12. Did you know

    Love you too Val.
  13. Agnarr TLP server and CoC

    Yeah, might dick around on Agnarr a bit, but it's going to be permanently locked at PoP-LDoN... I don't want to play those expansions forever. Phinigel is my home.
  14. Brilliant? I was at this game. Game 2 of the White Sox playoff run to their World Series win in 2005. Bottom of the 9th, 2 outs, and Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski is at bat. The third strike is questionably low, other camera angles and photographs seemed to show a small dirt plume coming up behind the catcher's glove, possibly indicating the ball did briefly touch the ground. Little known rule, but if the third strike is in the dirt, the batter can make a play to run to first base. Generally, a catcher will quickly glove-tag the batter at home plate before they have a chance unless it is a wild pitch. In this instance, A.J. brilliantly played the moment with a little fake out as he wached the Angels catcher walk off without tagging him, then he sprinted to first base. The umpire ruled it was in the dirt and gave the base to A.J. as an error by the Angels catcher. The White Sox then proceeded to rally and score the winning run in this inning and even the series at 1-1. This game was a momentum shift, the White Sox went on to win every following game in route to winning the World Series.
