    Server just went down 12:20 PST if you see this Control.

    Back up at 12:27, nevermind!

    Thanks for all your work!

    Haha, I can't tell you how many times I've "poked" shit that I shouldn't have.

    I really like where your server is going bud.

    Good work on the dad aspect!

    How are you doing on tinkering? Are you still planning to do the grind?

    Like right after I posted that, someone from Afternoon Tea hooked me up. If you want to avoid the grind, you can probably ask nicely from them.

    I can still help out with grinding money if more rerollers need rebreathers though!

    You can definitely sell those easily. I'd still be happy to send some cash your way for grinding expenses too. I bet more people here will end up wanting them

    just restarted :)

    It's been a while since I've left an update, so here goes:

    Have been trying to listen to everyone's feedback and get the EPs tweaked where they're doable by one group while keeping their challenge and technical bits intact. It's a bit of a slow process, but better to make balance tweaks incrementally imo. It's very much a work in progress though.

    General:
    -4boxing is ok now (has been for a long time actually, thought I'd posted about it, but looks like I didn't)
    -You can now rename your pets by targeting them and typing #rename petname
    -added a kunark dungeon translocator
    -added a tribute master to PoK
    -prismatic dye added to Peras
    -re-added holgresh elder beads as a rare from the Grand_Vizier
    -turned off crescent/blightfire
    -changed required level to recommended level fabled tranq staff
    -enabled mystats
    -changed autotrain to include triple attack, 2hp, disarm traps, and lizardman/vah shir
    -fixed a bug keeping the charm from upgrading the mage epic pet


    Spells:
    -fixed duration on charms
    -fixed duration in invis/camo/undead/animals
    -extended duration of all versions of levitation to match soulbinder's extended version
    -removed another load of annoying npc spells
    -strong disease duration reduced


    Quests:
    -added rebreather to pok vendor
    -added a vendor with velious and pop armor components
    -changed Jinalis_Andir to neutral faction
    -upped phinny's epic quest item droprates
    -slightly lowered how much Dizok's hate iksars (iksar can now do spirit wracked cord quest)
    -made regal band turnin/recharge work at warmly
    -upped droprate on Dirt of Underfoot
    -upped droprate on Crown of Elemental Mastery
    -gave Neh Ashiir a static spawn, and made the torch drop much more likely
    -added a fix to monk epic script (an iksar master)


    Mob Changes:

    -toned down fennin ae ramp
    -toned down avatar of mist ae ramp
    -corniav - extended timer a bit
    -removed ramp from magmaton
    -reduced the number of adds when fighting rztwl
    -removed bane requirement from emp/seru
    -emp - removed slow and shortened stun
    -seru - reduced stun duration
    -set naggy to no-flee to keep him from wandering into bad places
    -upped the spawn rates on the iksar betrayer and the pawbuster
    -added minotaur lord and hero
    -Tallon Zek - removed dispell, snare, slow


    Mob Respawn issues:
    -fixed earth/air ring respawns
    -fixed poeb respawns
    -fixed a problem with cursed cycle respawn (exiled was still setting a long global timer)
    -fixed a problem with rz spawn (vallon was still setting a long global timer)
    -fear golems were on same spawn table, split them up and fixed spawntime so they all should spawn now
    -fixed hoh trial respawns
    -upped putrid skeletons in qhills spawns
    -tweaked emp cycle script again, maybe fixed blood repop
    -gnolls in rathe didn't want to pop, so moved them off the night only cycle

    Didn't mean to waste anyone's work :( just saw a few comments about people not being able to get one. Didn't figure that anyone should have to level up a tradeskill to be able to do their epic. If it helps, I made sure to make it expensive enough that people would probably buy from players if possible.

    Where are the rerolled peeps on progression right now? I'm working on velious gearing still. I'm starting to get to the point where I can't four box everything down, so hooking up with peeps would be nice

    They moved to the guild Militant and then from what I've seen on the VOG forum there was some fallout there. I've been doing epics for shits and giggles as well as some velious stuff. Don't really have any interest to do Luclin or PoP.
