To Our Daybreak Community,
I’m writing today to let you know that, after much review and consideration, Daybreak is discontinuing development of EverQuest Next.
There are many updates to the Alternate Ability descriptions to account for all the changes over the past few months. Much work still remains, especially in updating the tables and verifying the information. At leat now all the merged abilities, and new abilities, should be in place.
A lot of fixes again relating to the expansion, but of particular note is there have been changes to the taunt mechanics which will affect our pets. Full patch notes follow:
A couple of hotfixes and small patch - notes follow:

Lots of fixes for the expansion. One item to note is a change to Companion of Necessity has removed the maximum level that the companion can attempt to taunt. Also noted that rabies will no longer block the out-of-combat regen. Full patch notes follow:
