Test Update #23






The Test Update #23 notes are available. There's nothing tremendously newsworthy there.

I am always glad to see SOE do a revamp of a lower level zone. And I have to say Blackburrow will always have a special place in my heart. It was my first real dungeon zone in EQII and I thought the music was excellent. I also enjoyed the multiple entrances, underwater passages and Bucky's keg. I can't wait to run through it again with an alt and see how the revamp is.

One other thing may seem really minor but it always drove me insane:

"Gamma settings will now remain consistent between windowed mode and full screen."

I never mentioned my issue with that anywhere because I honestly thought it was something to do with my computer and not the game. I switch between windowed and full-screen quite a bit (though I advise you to always do your actual playing in full-screen). So this comes as a really welcome fix for me. Speaking of gamma correction, if you find the whole game to be too dark, up your gamma. It works better for me than messing with brightness or anything else. And in a more general sense, don't be afraid to tweak your graphics settings until you find the perfect combination. It can make a big difference.

I don't really know what to think about this statement (which I initially missed):

- A spell's chance to trigger a proc is now adjusted based on its cast time.

It's a bit vague so I'll have to see how it actually works.

Was told a while ago that the way to semi-defeat Fear effects is to change to /walk mode before the battle. So when you are Feared, you will turn and walk away, instead of running.

Yeah I can post!

Anyhoo, I personally wished they didnt alow EQ1 or EQ2 to be minimized. I know it's a convience when serching the web and doing whatever. Sadly, many use it for the exploiting power potential.
