The return of the Beastlords to Norrath is at hand, and the story continues in part two of the prelude event!

The Truespirit Harbingers have emerged from the spirit realms, and stand ready to test the heroes of Norrath.

DUNGEON FINDER

Dungeon Finder is a matchmaking system designed to make it easier for groups to get together for dungeons. The system requires a minimum of six people to be using the system to create groups.

  • To use the Dungeon Finder, click the “Dungeon Finder” button from the EQII menu on your XP bar. (Or open the “Zones” menu by using ALT+Z.)
  • You can queue solo or as a group (only group leaders can queue a group) for any dungeons you qualify for (based on level, critical mitigation requirements and if you have the required expansion on your account)
  • You can either queue for a Random Dungeon (and get a +25% XP bonus while playing that dungeon) or you can queue for specific dungeons by only clicking the checkboxes next to their names. (NOTE: You don’t get the +25% XP bonus if you queue for specific dungeons.)
  • If you leave the dungeon, and your group stays within it, you can use the “Return” button to zone back to your group without travel time. (Note: PvP Groups: If you zone out of a DF instance and your alignment doesn’t match that of the leader you are disbanded from the group.)
  • If your group isn’t full, the group leader can use the ‘Reinforce’ button to allow more players, currently queued in the Dungeon Finder (and who qualify), to join the group.
  • If your group finishes a Dungeon Finder dungeon, the group leader can queue for another dungeon immediately (without needing to leave the dungeon the group is currently in). This should result in almost no wait time for the next dungeon as long as you still have a full group.

Note: The zones offered in the Dungeon Finder are based off your character’s actual level (not your mentored level). Mentored level has no effect on Dungeon Finder matchmaking.

POPULATION / ZONE PROGRESSION

Tower of Frozen Shadow: Haunt of Syl’tor

  • It should no longer be possible to get into a death loop at the entrance of Haunt of Syl’tor.

The Hole: Spirit’s Resonance

  • Nortlav the Scalekeeper should no longer get stuck after returning from possession.

Sebilis

  • Gruplinort in Sebilis should more reliably drop loot.

ABILITIES / ALTERNATE ADVANCEMENT

Warden

  • Shatter Infections now triggers on any damage.

Predator

  • Smoke Bomb should get resisted less often.

Dirge

  • All forms of Intrepid Strike have been changed. The Legendary Intrepid Strike now grants 15% Flurry, Potency and PvP Potency. The Mythical and Spell versions grant 25% Flurry, Potency and PvP Potency. The ability has been changed to stack additively instead of multiplicatively with Potency, Flurry and Multi-Attack. Had this not been addressed, the advantage from Intrepid Strike would have grown indefinitely with those stats.

Troubador

  • Countersong has had its immunity removed. It now lasts for 12 seconds, does not dispel when an ability is used and reduces the targets AE Auto Attack Chance as well as ability damage.
  • Vexing Verses now also deals minor damage and reduces the target’s casting speed.
  • Breathtaking Bellow can no longer be resisted. Its radius has been increased to 15 meters.
  • Demoralizing Processional now also reduces the target encounter’s primary attributes.
  • Enhance: Demoralizing Processional now also improves the attribute reduction.
  • Jester’s Cap no longer has an immunity timer.
  • Tap Essence now affects the encounter and the group. The damage has been reduced.

  • Raxxyl’s Rousing Tune now also improves agility.
  • Sandra’s Deafening Strike now restores some of the power it stole to the troubador.
  • Demoralization is now “Abhorrent Verse.” Abhorrent Verse transfers 50% of the threat from the Troubador’s group to the target for a short time. This does not transfer threat from fighters.

ACHIEVEMENTS

  • All instances of Bregador Bitelimb have been corrected to Bendegor Bitelimb.
