Legends of Norrath Shutting Down Permanently August 17, 2016

Daybreak has announced that Legends of Norrath will shut down permanently on August 17, 2016. The last day to purchase booster packs and claim monthly All Access free packs is July 18, 2016.

Here is the announcement:
 For the past nine years, EverQuest and EverQuest II players have interacted with the world of Norrath through the Legends of Norrath Trading Card Game. Many of you have enjoyed its art, its strategic gameplay, and hopefully found that elusive Loot card granting one of our cool in game items.

Legends of Norrath has not had an active development team for quite some time and in the best interest of our company and players, we have made the difficult decision to close the servers on Wednesday, August 17, 2016 at Noon Pacific Time.

Purchasing Legends of Norrath booster packs and the monthly All Access Membership claim of Legends of Norrath booster packs will no longer be available after Monday, July 18, 2016 at 10AM Pacific Time.

All loot rewards and packs in the Legends of Norrath client will need to be open and claimed on your character prior to when the servers close to ensure that your loot rewards are available in EverQuest and EverQuest II.

We know some of you are extremely enthusiastic about some of the items that were previously introduced in the Legends of Norrath TCG packs. These loot rewards will continue to be available to players through other means. Look to the Marketplace for packs which give an opportunity for rewards from previous LON sets.

We appreciate your understanding and continued support.

Chalandria's Fang Scenario Active Again in LoN

I just went into LoN to get my five free decks this month and checked for this and discovered it is live. No idea for how long.

[IMG]Chalandria's Fang is an item that will summon poison once every 20 hours. The poison for all level 105 classes except rogues is [IMG]Chalandria's Bite XVIII. Rogues may get a different (better) poison, however this needs to be confirmed. Lower level toons (exact level / reward is to be discovered) get a lesser poison.

It is a Legends of Norrath Spider Queen scenario loot item. The Spider Queen scenario has returned. If you win the scenario, you get Chalandria's Fang as the EQ loot item. Chalandria's Fang and the poison can not be traded.

This information is from

UPDATE: It appears this was for the month of May and is now over.

Some Self Melee Skills Fail If Nothing Targeted, To Be Fixed

From a post by Dzarn, EQ Developer, on the Daybreak forum:

Thank you for the feedback on this bug, we've been able to identify the source and will be working on a fix.

It looks like any melee skill that uses an SPA to trigger another spell ID will fail if the caster does not have any target before using the button, which is obviously not intended for self spell target types.

Daybreak, All EQ, Down Due to Attack

All Daybreak websites are either down or extremely slow. EverQuest is down. The reason? It appears to be an attack.

Since the EQ forums are inaccessible, the only news is coming from social media.

Daybreak has posted very little information, only a few posts such as this post on Twitter:

We are currently investigating reported issues with connectivity both in-game and on our websites/forums. Thank you for your patience.

It appears likely that the game and EQ forums will be down for a while.

UPDATE July 10 11am EDT:  Two hours ago Daybreak announced that service was restored but then four minutes ago they said they are experiencing issues.   Access to Daybreak assets and games is still unreliable if not impossible.

UPDATE July 10 6:49pm EDT: It appears that Daybreak websites and games are up and running.

Crushbone and Permafrost Hardcore Heritage Extended Until July 1

Due to a bug with the raids, Crushbone and Permafrost Hardcore Heritage have been extended.
Yes, this issue is being addressed in the patch on Wednesday 6/17 and we're extending the end date on these Hardcore Heritage zones by a week so that they'll end on 7/1 instead of 6/24 and be available for a full two weeks. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Broken Anniversary Missions to Return Fixed in June

The 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th, and 13th Anniversary Missions were reported as having issues with not working (see posts below). Daybreak has announced they will return (fixed) in June.
We've extended the 5th-13th Anniversary Events to July 15th (7/15). They should re-enable after the June update next week [June 17].

"Anniversary" Bug Affects Hardcore Heritage

The same bug reported for Anniversary missions (see post below) is also affecting Hardcore Heritage.

It has been reported that the Hardcore Heritage Crushbone raid is sending people to the normal Crushbone zone instead of the raid instance.

A fix is on the Test server to go live sometime in the near future.
- Corrected an issue causing players entering mission instances of some zones to be teleported to the non-instanced versions.
Still no word from Daybreak if any of the broken missions will be returned this year or extended (for those currently live) due to this bug or if players will have to wait another year before being able to complete them.

Some Anniversary Missions Bugged, No Word If Time To Be Extended

While the anniversary missions are due to end today, some have been reported as being bugged for a while.

When you speak to the quest giver and request to be sent to the mission instance, they instead send you to the normal (non-quest, non-instanced) zone.  This, obviously, makes it impossible to do the mission.

While Daybreak has confirmed these bugs and that they are working on a fix, they have not mentioned whether they will be offered again this year or whether players will have to wait until 2016 to complete them.
