EQ Patch Notes – March 19th

3/19/2009

*** Highlights ***

– Pet hold can now be used with charmed pets again (as long as the owner has the AA).
– Put separators back into raid window. Separators will now appear between sorting groups for all sorting criteria except for “by name.”
*** Quests & Events ***

– Added a check to make sure there are miscreants in Shadow Haven when they are supposed to be there.
– Bristlebane’s party will now show up in, er, minitab as expected.
– Added a default “Hail” dialog to each kill target in the Justice of the Tribunal 10th Anniversary task that will let you re-engage if you already hailed that NPC but failed to kill him.
*** NPC ***

– Modified the spawn rates of several NPCs in Fabled PoP that drop the “Swarm Pet” Weapons to normalize the rate that they appear. Most spawn rates were increased but some were reduced that were appearing too frequently.
*** Tradeskills ***

– Fixed the broken coffin poison bottle.  Now it can make any NORMAL poison combine as well as the original coffin bottle combines.
– The following spell research recipes now create a duplicate (tradable) scroll instead of the original (no-drop) scroll.  For real this time!  Skill: Champion’s Aura, Skill: Poison Spikes Trap, Skill: Master’s Aura, Skill: Bloodlust Aura, Spell: Blessed Aura, Spell: Decrepit Skin, Spell: Aura of the Muse, Spell: Elddar’s Grasp, Spell: Puratus, Spell: Moonshadow, Spell: Ghost of Renewal, Spell: Mind Shatter, Spell: Chaos Flame, Spell: Iceflame Guard, Spell: Mind Flay, and Spell: Spirit of Oroshar.
*** Pets ***

– Pet hold can now be used with charmed pets again (as long as the owner has the AA).
– Now only PC pets will display their owner’s name under them.
– Telling your pet to attack another target when focus is turned on will now cause it to switch targets and focus exclusively on the new target.
– Fixed a bug where telling your pet to attack a new target when focus is turned on would fail if the pet hated the new target the most already (even if the new target was not already its target).
– Casting swarm pets or familiars should no longer disrupt the state of the buttons on your pet window when you already have a normal pet up.
– Pet target hit points are now updated even if you are not targeting the pet’s target.
– Fixed several other bugs that were causing the buttons in the pet window to become out of sync with the server or to reset upon zoning.
– Qattack will now only change the pet’s target if the pet did not already have a target.  This is contrasted with the regular attack command which will force the pet to change targets (if focused or not).  Qattack now simply adds the target NPC to the pet’s hate list, so that it will attack that target at a later time when its other targets are dead.
*** UI ***

– Put separators back into raid window. Separators will now appear between sorting groups for all sorting criteria except for “by name.”
– When sorting by group, empty slots should always be shown after filled slots for each group. Also group leaders should always be at the top of each group.
– When sorting by anything but group, all the empty slots are removed and not displayed.
*** Previously Updated ***

– Fixed a problem with Atler Flamejabber.  He should now reappear in his correct location after someone has completed his quest.
– Nettle Higglesbury should now correctly gather some rabble rousers around him once he’s finished his pie.
– Fixed an issue with Bristlebane’s parties not showing up as expected after 20 hours.
