Another Great Update in the Works – GU38 Test Notes
Is it just me who gets all excited and maybe even a little flustered when they see that the test server has been updated with the latest GU? Well, for those who are curious, the notes are found here. Be sure to check them out. As for what I’m personally interested in.. well:
- Bristlebane ReturnsDo you consider yourself a practitioner of pranks, a student of the silly, or even a fan of the funny? Does the idea of pulling a practical joke over on someone sound like your idea of a good time? If so, you might make an excellent follower of Fizzlethorpe Bristlebane, the Grand Prankster. Recently scores of puckish jesters, fanciful bards and quick-witted thieves have all been spreading rumors about the imminent return of their favorite Sire of Shenanigans. If Bristlebane has truly arrived and resumed his place aside the other gods who have also returned to Norrath, why has he waited until now? What sort of mischievous plans does the Royal Trickster have in store for his faithful followers? What about the other gods who have yet to reveal themselves since their departure? The answers to these questions are undoubtedly wrapped within a riddle only Bristlebane himself can solve.Those interested in devoting themselves to the Master of Mischief should speak with Tobel Patadash, the self-declared Prophet of Bristlebane at the docks of The Enchanted Lands. Be advised, however, that the Gigglegibber Goblins have their own nonsensical opinion of who they believe the real Prophet of Bristlebane is as well!
- Trivial Loot no longer includes Quest items, so Quest items will drop on gray encounters.
Probably what I am most excited about. This means (If I’m reading it right) Cloak of Flames will not have to drop from green mobs. Which is what people had to do before. A pain in New Tunaria where a few of the pages drop. It also means when RoK comes out you won’t have to continuously mentor to get the updates. Of course the BEST part – is that I’m hoping my book quest starters will drop from these chests. So I won’t have to mentor to finally complete my set of Obelisk books.
- Resistance Chorus Songs: Now affect the entire raid.
- You can now sort the quest journal by quest level
There a few thing i was looking for that didn’t make this update. but other than that another great update
Well, thankfully EQ2 is forgiving when it comes to the worshiping of deity, you can go through as many as your faction allows, collecting all their cloaks and getting the exp / aa for each one before settling, and even going back to them afterwards if the new one is not the one for you.
Good thing I’ve not aligned myself with any deity on my swashy yet. Think I’ll pick him when he arrives.
i wont say i told ya so! /points to bristlebane’s return
