April – Server Updates

Mortimer Greenwald — 04/03/2023 12:47 PM
-Update to v 2.9.0 – Bot Groups have been removed. You can still invite bots to your group. But beyond 1 group create a raid. You can make social macros to spawn your team and /raidinvite botname. In a later update there will be an easier way to do this in bulk. The project team saw fit to eliminate bot groups due to the amount of crashes among the EQMU community. (edited)

Mortimer Greenwald — 04/03/2023 4:42 PM
-Update to v 2.9.1 Bots can now be invited to raid. Also fixed a number of unrelated bot crashes.

-Infusion of the Faithful has been nerfed. On live skills/resists are capped, here they are not. Currently was making it so every npc had a ZERO % chance to hit you with a spell.
I’ve left in the spell but it’s duration is 4min 30secs. Buff will not cast it on you. You will have to use the spell granted by Vet AA’s for free.
-Update on poShadow (t4) you can explore the zone. It’s about 50% complete now
-Air pets to use new models (thx Knox)
-Necro pets slight boost to hp/dmg
New Binaries: Notables for us:
-^casterrange ###, Controls the range casters will try to stay away from a mob (if too far, they will skip spells that are out-of-range)… use ^casterrange 100
-Mend Adjustments – Time increased but reduction now accepted. Previously, the server-side reuse of Mend was set to 290 seconds rather than 360 seconds (6 minutes). Mend was not accepting reduction timers from potential items, buffs or AAs (Hastened Mend). (edited)

-Armor with less than 1000 hp that had levels >85 are now set to level 82. This will put these items inline with Bloodmoon/Oasis gear but for higher play you’ll still need to do Oasis Premium and the T1+ zones. The goal here was to give player more variety to explore around and find cool stuff.
