The EverQuest servers will be brought down tomorrow, September 21 at 6:30AM PST for the September update. Daybreak’s patch notes can be found here and include lots of interesting fixes/tweaks/nerfs. I anticipate there will be a fair bit of drama about the changes to bard dichotomic spells but I’m not going to touch that here as I don’t play a bard or a class that found recent dependence on bard dicho.
Call me a sad little man but what I am most excited about is this little blurb right here:
- Added an option to the display tab of the options window that allows you to see pre-Luclin PC characters on mounts. The ability to summon and ride mounts is no longer disabled on pre-Luclin PC character models.
Huzzah! I’ve never been a fan of the Luclin character models but we’ve been forced to use them for years if we wanted to use a mount. I’m thrilled, nay, I’m ECSTATIC that I can cut down on lag and use the old pre-Luclin models and still use my horse. Maybe I’m the only person who will be happy but I’ve got a huge grin right now and for some time to come.
Also, although probably not of much matter to most folks, there was this little tidbit:
- Fixed a bug that caused the particles on the Battle Cat Mounts to not display.
Which should make Koryu happy.
