EverQuest
Site Update #1

Site Update: Terror of Luclin spells are available for lookup now

Another year gone folks. I hope you're all safe and feeling good. I look forward to 2022 and I hope everything goes well for you all in 2022.

Nearly a month has passed since the Terror of Luclin expansion kicked off on the live servers. I want to say thanks to those who helped with entering in Terror of Luclin info. Drewinette entered in a bunch of quests, drops, npc info, recipes and more! Thank you for all the help over the years Drew! Grizabelle helped me entered in a ton of recipe info and supplied quest info, thank you! Cylius helped supply us with npc info, drops and entered in quest info as well, thank you! SwiftyMuse was busy during ToL beta getting a majority of the items uploaded for the expansion, thank you! And thanks to all of you who have posted on the site with info for the expansion, this site wouldn't be here without you ladies and gents.

And now onto the plans for 2022. We have plenty of plans up ahead. We just recently upgraded the site off the old backend it was running on and now are on up to date technology. So we're starting off this year on good grounding. I have plenty of plans to fix a bunch of things and add new features this year. I've already been busy working on spells and plan to get those updated soon for the the Terror of Luclin spells, sorry for not having those ready at expansion launch. We had some pretty major issues with just how spells are updated with how large the database tables have grown over the years, so updating spells on the production servers isn't possible in its current state. So a new system needs to be developed for it. I have been busy working on a solution for the time being to get them updated but will be busy working on the whole spell platform until a better system is in place.
