Test Update 03/08/12

*** Highlights ***

- Created a new set of tutorials for advanced game concepts such as Alternate Achievements and Guildhalls. These tutorials are available at level 50 in the Plane of Knowledge.

- It's EverQuest's 13th Anniversary! Seek out Sam Napth in the Plane of Knowledge for more information.

- All quest givers for Anniversary tasks can now be found via the Find window.


*** Spells ***

- Bard - Reduced the focus cap on Arias, Auras, and Echoes of the Composer and the Orator.


*** AA ***

- Cleric - Corrected an issue with Battle Frenzy that was causing some damage spells to fail to crit.
- Enchanter - Unlinked the timers for Glyph Spray and Divine Companion Aura.
- Magician - Corrected the fire spell ability for Servant of Ro.
- Necromancer - Perfected Dead Man Floating will no longer conflict with the Mass Group Buff timer.
- Ranger - Corrected a problem that linked the Spirit of Eagle and Volatile Arrow abilities.
- Shaman - Restored the DoT proc on Languid Bite ranks 7-9.
- Shadowknight - Thought Leech has been changed to share a timer with Leech Touch instead of Harm Touch.
- Shadowknight - Explosion of Hatred should no longer affect the caster.

- Cleric, Druid, and Shaman - Corrected the Copious Healing effect of Abundant Healing ranks 21-25.
- Druid and Shaman - Silent Casting should no longer interfere with Paralytic Spores.
- Fixed many AA descriptions that were out of date.

*** Achievements ***

- A new category of Achievements has been created called the Hero's Journey. Many existing quests have had achievements added to them in this category.
- Created a set of Achievements to help you track your progress through the new advanced tutorials given in and around the Plane of Knowledge.

- Players that are zoning when the raid expedition is acquired will now receive credit for completing the raid where appropriate.

*** UI ***

- Now, when a wisp path fails and an X shows up on the map at the requested location, it persists through closing the map window. It only clears if the player clicks "End Path" in the map window, the player initiates a new find, or the player zones.
- Depending on whether or not the Zone Path Window is visible, the Zone Guide has either a Show Path button visible or a Hide Path button visible.
- When first logging into the game the default expansion banner will now display instead of the loading screens.
- Fixed a bug that caused world tradeskill containers to lose their "Combine" button in experimentation mode.
- Removed the Voice Chat Notification window.
- Set the default state of the Help window to hidden.
- The Welcome Screen will no longer open automatically when zoning into tutoriala.
- Made it so that the newbie character no longer shows when the player is at the character select screen and has no characters.
- Changed the "Journal" button in the "Window Selector" window to open the "Quest Journal" window when clicked.

You need to stop posting stuff that happens on the test server! It confuses the feeble minded. And, since I don't play on the test server, it can not be important.

When it happens is when I need to know what is happening. The world is going to end. That is going to happen. Do I need to give a shit about it now? No!
