Will all the various quirks be cared through the green timeline?
 
One of my mains back in vanilla was a necro and a couple things jump out are necro pets attack rate used to be based on weapon delay(if i recall right they didn't even include this in the patch notes, but it was definitely pre-kunark that it got nerfed, though it was around in vanilla for quite awhile). Another big one is clarity used to stack with the lich line. A third one was being able to double pact at the hit point cost of only one pact(I think this was fixed when they added an icon for death pact). I didn't play on P99 during vanilla so I have no idea they were or were not implemented.

I really wonder, but totally doubt we'd see these types of patches in green99, but would love to.

Damage over time doing full damage to non fleeing mobs while they are moving for (how many months?)

Damage cap on casters melee attacks raised until months after kunark

Scimitar of the Mistwalker Pet pre nerf, pre-prenerf, pre-pre-prenerf.

Full damage for Direct Damge spells on players for months, until that was nerfed (not that it matters but its a great example of a "querky, tiny, non well known patch" that I think would really make green99 the best classic experience IMO)

There's probubly hundreds of these!

Jibartik 05-21-2019 01:48 PM

What about mobs that dropped something too frequently, that was fixed?

What about turn in quests that give multiple rewards lol surely that would NOT be something that should be on green (but in my opinion should be!) IIRC there were some pretty broken exploits that id love to see be actually coded into the most "perfect" classic recreation progression server.

It would only be classic if everyone had forgotten these exploits. That is not the case. It would be a big mistake. I believe there were duplicating exploits as well.

Brain isn't working today. I meant the shadow compact line of spells. Being able to recast it before the damage has finished ticking and get a second cast without additional hp cost(you only have a couple seconds window to do it).

idk on one hand I agree with you but on the other, its all progression competition, if I knew about those sploits before you did, and I was playing a truelly classic progression server.. I feel like knowing these exploits is fair. Because I know classic EQ more than you, I deserve to beat you at it. Thats how I feel EQ is best.

Over time we all know it, and it just becomes "game mechanics" and now we're all the smartest Classic Everquesters that exist int he multiverse.

Like do we want to be the best EMU on the web? OR THE ONLLY TRUE CLASSIC EQ EXPERIENCE?

idk... on blue maybe sure, EMU it up, but on a progression server that resets? idk... I just don't know.....

Better luck next time, would be fine with me.

In the name of our community knowing the TRUTH about classic eq and all its intricacies? Id rather we were smart about THAT than smart enough about special EMU code..... I just dont know! :( good thing I dont get to decide :)

naw dude all those things are driving me crazy, things like that! I want to see a progrsesion server with that stuff! hahah

Obviously the people that know all the exploits/broken quests/quirks that got fixed later on aren’t going to spill their beans. Instead, they’ll keep quiet and hope they can exploit to their hearts content while screaming “but it’s classic!” If anyone dares to question it.

This is the notable list from Alla.. I can see some things I know happened that I dont see here. I would expect these to be the types of updates we'd see on a Rog/nilbog progression server. As for the other stuff, I can only hope nilbog is that nerdy, I know he would like to be. Admit it nilbog, if you're reading this, you would definitely put the exploits in and patch them out if you knew what they were and had enough time wouldn't you! wouldnt you!!

Edit: wtf this list has no mention of the guise?

FEBRUARY 17, 2000

nerf mistwalker pet to dissipate after 1 round of combat
open paineel (we starting with it open i think? )

APRIL 10, 2000

The Terror Mask will now cast "Fear" instead of "Call of Bones" as previously announced. The "Call of Bones" effect was placed on this item by mistake.

staff of forbidden rites - needs to be changed to ultra rare at some point

Lord Nagafen
Lady Vox
Phinigel Autropos
Cazic Thule
Innoruuk
Noble Dojorn

Kunark (April 24, 2000)

Reinstate Burning Rapier to updated stats. 7/20 effect:ignite

APRIL 28, 2000

Due to a feature within the zone, players can no longer bind within Timorous Deep. This functionality was intended in the zone prior to launch, as binding presents a possible balance issue. Players who are already bound in this zone will retain their binding location until they bind someplace else.

MAY 7, 2000

Gem Encrusted Ring removed from forest loop loottable

MAY 12, 2000

increase gate guard stats, increase spawn time of city guards from 6 minutes to 20 minutes (nerf guard hunting)

MAY 16, 2000

Increased the number of frightfingers in the Plane of Fear. Previously only 3 frightfingers would pop per respawn. (haha, already done)

MAY 25, 2000

The Runed Fighter's Staff, previously usable by Monks and Warriors, has been restricted to Monks only. The statistics on this staff are much more powerful than normally allowed for warriors. This change is retroactive and will be reflected on items currently in inventory. Though we strive to avoid negatively adjusting items after they have been earned, this item presented a balance issue, making the change necessary. We apologize to warriors that currently own this weapon. Runed Fighter's Staff replaced with imbued fighters staff

JUNE 15, 2000

The Staff of Temperate Flux and the Rod of Insidious Glamour now have a short casting time associated with their activatable effect

nerf deepwater helm effect
nerf donals vambraces effect
You can no longer cast invisibility on any pet.

JULY 20, 2000

/Consent no longer gives other players permission to loot your corpse. Instead, it only gives them the ability to drag your corpse using the /corpse command. This change is due to player request stemming from number of customer service issues raised by some players who were using /consent as a way to steal the belongings of other players. The change will eliminate those concerns and make the game more enjoyable for all of those involved.

AUGUST 9, 2000

Rangers, Paladins, and SKs now have mana equivalent to that of a pure caster with the same stats. This will give those hybrids a good deal more mana, regardless of their stats

Mosscovered Twig nerfed into Mosscovered Branch
Barbed Scale Whip nerfed to offhand only

EPIC QUESTS - We are pleased to announce that we have implemented new "Fiery Avenger" style quests for every class in the game (including paladins). The ultimate reward for each quest boasts a custom model with unique particle effects. We think that you will be pleased.

NOVEMBER 15, 2000

NOVEMBER 29, 2000

The Monk's hand-to-hand skill cap has been raised to a level equal to their one-handed blunt skill
