- Classic EQ
Nothing earth-shattering in this patch as far as magicians go, but there are a couple of things which are helpful. One new command line to let you use a clickable item in inventory in a social/hotkey. I tend to use a lot of "clickies" to self-buff myself, and now I can set them up a hotkey (well 2 hotkeys because of the number of clickies I have).
/useitem <slot> [subindex]
This will activate the item in an inventory slot number. If that item is a container, then it will also allow for specifying which slot in that container to use.
So /useitem 1 would activate the item in your first inventory slot, while /useitem 4 2 would activate the second item in the container in your fourth inventory slot.
Full patch notes follow:
The second part of Rain of Fear (Shadow of Fear) is now live. The most significant changes are to our pets:
It's anniversary time again, and there are new events. Some things of special interest to magicians:
Full patch notes follow...
I have added a write up of the Jonas Dagmire's Skeletal Hand quest, a rather nice augment, though a rather involved series of tasks.
Today I have added a FAQ with a glossary of acronyms that I hope will be useful to new players. I plan to add to this as other terms come to mind.
I also added a list of recommendations for AAs under Skills which again I hope will be useful to players. Because there are a lot of opinions about which AAs to learn first I have written it more as a breakdown of key AAs, and it is not intended to specify a specific order.
I have added an Alternate Ability Command List which lists the activatable ability values to use in macros. I believe this to be the complete list for magicians as of this date (based upon the output of the "/alt list" command and my hopefully accurate extracting of values). (I am actually not sure how the special glyph abilities work so I don't know if they can actually be activated this way.)
I have added a summary of the quests for the Rallosian Battle Figure, a clickable Ogre familiar which increases your maximum mana and hit points by up to 450 for a period of time.
I have added a section for Leadership Abilities under Skills.
I have added an option to search for spells by (partial) name. The old search by first letter is now the spell glossary. I have also added a Finding Spells page to aid in locating your spells. I have started adding information on obtaining Rank II and III Rain of Fear Spells (level 96-100).
