Default Shralok Pack should now be LORE

According to February 21, 2001 patch notes the Shralok Pack should now be LORE. I see a lot of tunnel people advertising 'Never Lore' but it would seem that is incorrect. Home screen patch notes of p99 mention [Feb 2001] updates to the timeline, so would seem this would be appropriate.

I don't believe Shralok Pack will ever be "lore" because it would screw up so many accounts and bank accounts for people who use and store with them.

http://everquest.allakhazam.com/hist...es-2002-2.html

I daresay this was an oversight, it would appear the evidence points to it being switched to Lore during the February 2001 time period which server has now entered.

Nilbog...?

If I could make a suggestion to implement this...

Stage 1:

The first detected 'Shralok Pack' in the player's inventory would be changed to LORE, all other packs detected be changed to 'A Shralok Pack' and be made NO DROP.

Stage 2:
Devs issue a decree that 'On May 15th, 2016 all 'A Shralok Pack' items will be made 'NO RENT' items. Any lost items will not be reimbursed. You have been warned'.

I figure it is easier to make it NO RENT than to delete from each player's corpse / bank / inventory. Maybe this is an easier way to implement things. People can corpse bags if they afraid on their mules or may be out of town, but does no one any good to continually corpse these bags, they would just phase out.

I could very well be wrong, but why is it stayed in the patch notes I linked? Allakhazams seems like a trustworthy site for those notes.

It's in the alla notes because they are a copy paste of the original patch notes.

Here's the notes for the 2002 patch where this bug is addressed.

Removed the "Pending Lore" tag from the Shralok Pack. There is no current plan to make this into a lore item.

I did not see those notes on the allakhazam page, I could give them another look. But what is that website you are linking? Does not seem a credible source.

I get that perhaps they patched a message that it was made lore, but perhaps it didn't work and maybe stayed pending lore until they gave up on implementing a fix, would have to dig into some message boards about it.

At the very least the allakhazam note should be addressed and not taking another link from a non-EQ site as gospel.

Again, could be wrong, but should list a better link as evidence. I will try and get further confirmation as I was going strictly off the patch note I saw.
