    no clue yet. I have been working on roaming and pathing. So far on those side. Pojustice and poinnovation are done. Ponightmare are almost done. Just gotta do the pathing in the caves. Scriptings hasn't been touched yet. I would think it would be done by early to mid next year at the latest.

    Some time in 2020. Was some significant dev burn out with Luclin so it's been slow. I'm not rushing on details either since it's the last expac

    Do what you need to do to keep burnout to the minimum. You all have done great work over the years. At times we may disagree, but the server supports you guys.

    Just here to reiterate the others sentiments of gratitude. Anything in that range or even later is greatly appreciated. Thanks for all your hard work!! Exciting to know it’s sometime in 2020!

    Taking our sweet time with the development is keeping burnout to the minimum.

    Sure. I need somebody to go around the world on Live servers and check vendors for greed.

    How to do this:

    1] Install the Live client. Switch to the Test server.
    2] Decide which zone you want to check merchant prices for
    3] Make a character that will be apprehensive or better faction to those merchants. Use /testbuff to make it instantly level 25
    4] Set that character's charisma to somewhere between 61-75 CHA (inclusive). Prices are the same if the CHA is in that range
    5] Buy a single platinum bar (used for jewelry making) or a Peridot
    6] Turn log file on with /log
    7] Visit every vendor in the zone, consider (with C key) then right click on them, then left click on the bar in your inventory so the vendor tells you the sell price
    8] If the price isn't 80pp (indiff+) or 71.429pp (apprehensive) then write that merchant's name down. (Peridot is 1/10th that)
    9] Repeat from step 2

    It can, but you’ll need to bootcamp to a Windows partition. You can use CrossOver games, I believe, but it doesn’t work great.

    Silly question, but I assume this needs to be done for all zones, not just PoP?

    I have some time this weekend I'll probably help out with it. If anyone else is interested as well let me know so we don't double up.

    lol, we need you guys to keep our EQ hopes and dreams alive. Take some time off of POP when necessary. No reasonable person wants you guys to work at a burn out pace.

    I'd like to just extend a thanks to the admins/devs that do this sort of thing - I am an engineer IRL and the thought of coming home from work and doing even more dev work on top of what I just did at the office sounds unappealing, so it's very cool that you guys even do this at all. Thanks a lot for even working on it and considering it. :)

    PS if rob does stumble upon this thread, if there’s anything else on dev servers that you think hasn’t been sufficiently tested to date, let me know.

    I did my best to go through all the quests, AAs and flagging possible with the zones available. Dunno if any big area got missed though.

    Not sure if all of the Trials in PoJustice have been tested yet? I finished the ones that I could do single boxing and they worked fine, but a few of them are beyond my ability to do single.

    Nevermind, I see they have all been tested out.
