Are Kronos Bad For EQ?

I know this isn't supposed to be a blog, and I don't normally post something like this, but if you played EQ in the past and are playing it today you no doubt have seen that things have gotten a bit out of hand. This seems to be especially true on the progression servers, such as Agnarr.

The amount of kill-steal, camp hogging/stealing, and just general griefing has reached ridiculous levels. Need a drop for your epic or some other quest, or a piece of great gear? Chances are the spot is either perma-camped or you will get KS'ed by someone.

Today's update does not have any magician-specific changes. Most of it seems to be bug fixes, some user interface fixes/changes and general cleanup. Full patch notes follow:

July 19, 2017

*** Highlights ***

- Increased the maximum stack size of most tradeskill components up to 1000.
- The default behavior for the advanced loot window pop-up setting will be to only show if new actions are needed.

*** Items ***

A lot of updated information has been added to the Classic EQ section of the site including some improved spell information. I know there hasn't been much done on the site for the past year or so, but personal issues have kept me from doing much.

Daybreak's Russell Shanks has published a letter on the EverQuest Next site that announces the sad news that the game has been cancelled. Here is his letter:

To Our Daybreak Community,

I’m writing today to let you know that, after much review and consideration, Daybreak is discontinuing development of EverQuest Next.

There are many updates to the Alternate Ability descriptions to account for all the changes over the past few months. Much work still remains, especially in updating the tables and verifying the information. At leat now all the merged abilities, and new abilities, should be in place.

A lot of fixes again relating to the expansion, but of particular note is there have been changes to the taunt mechanics which will affect our pets. Full patch notes follow:

A couple of hotfixes and small patch - notes follow:

Hotfix Notes: Jan 28, 2016

- Anashti Sul, Enslaver of Souls (Group and Raid) - Identified and corrected the actual bug that resulted in Anashti Sul despawning before leaving her precious eyeball filled corpse for plundering.

Lots of fixes for the expansion. One item to note is a change to Companion of Necessity has removed the maximum level that the companion can attempt to taunt. Also noted that rabies will no longer block the out-of-combat regen. Full patch notes follow:
