Two Missions Completed Solo

1d992710ab22034c39422583551419f7This evening, Qindaar completed two missions solo.  They were

Captain Hiran Group #1: Stop the Contamination

Captain Hiran Group #2: A Dread Challenger

Both these missions required Qindaar to scout out Oceangreen Village and kill the threats that were either poisoning the supplies or killing off the villagers.  Tried these a few nights ago with no success, but tonight managed to pull them off on the first shot both times. Finishing these moved Qindaar one set closer to becoming a Here of EverQuest.  Now he is working in Blackburrow instance zones to complete that chain.

While the missions seemed difficult, running in a tight circle around the village and concentrating on the beach under the pier, the north and south ends behind the rocks proved the best route for both missions, although some people had said invis and hide in the building that hosed the supplies and wait for them to get there.  I did not try this tactic so I do not know how well it would work.

2fe29d89ed0784b0a2e09457ca1cf814After he completed that he traveled to Temple of Bertoxxulous to activate the altar and kill the main MoB.

All in all Qindaar had a very successful day in Oceangreen Hills, a few more tasks and he will be moving on.

Still Foraging and Grinding

2015-05-20_15-05-59Qindaar has been patiently awaiting the spawning of the Defiled Treant. Once he gets that complete he should be able to complete all tasks to finish the Shield he has been working on.  Some people complained it took five to six hours for this guy to spawn.

*** Highlights ***

– Added a search function for advanced loot filters.
– Improved the load speed of characters into the world and when reloading UI.
– Moved the advanced loot settings from the Edit Filters window into a new window.
– Corrected a problem that caused some events that take place in instanced zones, such as the Arcane Fair for the Wizard step of “An Epic Request”, to stop working.

*** Quests & Events ***

– Calix Quirinus (Raid) – Corrected a bug that caused messaging about Lanys’ Area of Effect attack to fail. Cut the radius of her targeted Area of Effect knockback in half.
– Calix Quirinus (Raid) – Corrected a bug that caused Arc Worker adds to change targets every 5 seconds instead of every 20 seconds as intended.

*** Spells ***

– Corrected a bug that caused adjustments to critical chance to also affect critical amount.
– Spells with ‘doom’ effects, such as Promised heals and Kron’s Maelstrom, should now stack more intelligently.

*** NPC ***

– All translocators can now see you if you are hiding or invisible.

*** AA ***

– AA abilities that place a ‘doomed’ effect on their target will now stack properly.
– Fixed a bug that allowed Enchanters to gain full control over summoned animations without purchasing the Animation Empathy AAs.
– Adjusted the way that the Eyes Wide Open line of AA abilities are granted to be more consistent between ranks. You will no longer be required to purchase any rank at a 0 cost. Additionally, all shrouds and template characters will have Eyes Wide Open granted to them innately so that all slots in the extended target window behave as expected, even in template form.

– Enchanter – Made the following adjustments to Gift of Hazy Thoughts:
— 1. Increased the proc chance from 5 to 8 percent.
— 2. The version of Chromatic Haze that is cast by Gift of Hazy Thoughts is now equivalent to rank 6 of the Chromatic Haze instead of rank 1.

— 5. The Azure Mind Crystals summoned by the AA now share a lore group and a 5 minute recast timer.
— 6. The mana cost for summoning a mind crystal is now twice the amount of hit points or mana returned by that crystal. In the case of rank 1 this is a mana cost reduction; for ranks 2-4 this is a mana cost increase.
— 7. Corrected a typo in the description for the amount of mana returned by Azure Mind Crystals.

– Monk – Restored the knockback on the spell Dragon Force. The monk skill Dragon’s Balance will now prevent Dragon Force from being cast while Dragon’s Balance Effect is active.

– Shaman – Corrected Extended Languid Bite so that it now functions as described.

– Wizard – The critical chance reduction on Arcane Fusion no longer reduces the critical damage as well.

Foraging Pine Cones

2015-05-15_14-26-25Qindaar mixed up a batch of Maggot Acid yesterday after foraging his maggots, today he is after pine cones and wheat grass. So far he has managed a diseased root.  After he gets these ingredients he heads off for a new task.

Maggots, Yuk

2015-05-14_13-34-26Above you see Qindaar foraging for maggots to make a maggot acid, have to be careful though and make sure you have plenty of food or you can accidentally eat a maggot, yuk. Once Qindaar makes the maggot acid he can get the rest of the ingredients to complete the task.  Since this task was linked to so many he had to do it.


EQ 16th AnnivQindaar has been spending many hours working on foraging skills to complete a task in the Hero’s Journey Quest.  It is extremely tedious, time consuming and a waste of energy.  I tried the Bazaar for the items, but no one was selling them.  Since Maggots are both food and ingredients I figured they would be plentiful, but no way. So he will continue until he aquires four maggots.
