I really am getting tired of seeing updates and not any fixs for the troub, its been years that we have been passed up on the upgrade cycle

I am not sure who it is that oversees this but you "fail"

first you take away dirge myth procs in pvp now you take away interrupts from COB. you want us to be an even easier pvp update? wtfsoe. btw if you are a troub and you want rez and confront fear sounds like it's time to switch to dirge.

Only fix i think the troubs need, is a buff that actually helps the troub and not just the casters in the group. Like a buff with AGI in it. Ive seen some troubs parsing 60k+.. just depends on player skill and gear i guess. I have a 90 troub, but i rarely play her.

BG lobby seems to kick you out immediately.

People are having trouble changing adorns on gear.

Maybe I misunderstood this quote from the postings advertising the arrival of Children of War at:

http://everquest2.com/news/read/042011/3917

"Additional Content:

  • New daily missions
  • Crystal Caverns
  • Solo shard quest"

The chatter I read in various channels in-game was that we were finally going to get some daily SOLO quest for Velium Shards similar to the ones for Marks of Maneer and Void Shards.  Was that just wrong and if so what the heck does "Solo shard quest" mean?

Any plans for that SOE?

Can you at least acknowledge that you intended to do so but it is still in the works?

If after reading the copious update notes with all their PvP lovin' and general fixes I have missed this please enlighten me. 

Otherwise a response to the matter would be appreciated.

I am assuming this is a mistake but right now on naggy at least we can buy bg tokens for 2 gold 60ish silver, no other limiation, is this intended or left over from testing and it snuck into live?

these new adornment block things are awful. for example, i got a neck last night b4 i logged. i know it has a white slot on it. it said nice and plain WHITE SLOT or something. now when i right click and examine the item it don't evene show a slot available. if i hover my mouse over the icon in the examine window there is one block under the item name. i have no clue what color it is.

my current gear, red white and yellow slots yesterday. i could read what adorn i had on. now it jsut shows the stats and some not even that. with so many adorns not stacking like your umm halycon and revered lands etc, i have no idea what i have and where.  this adorn thing is dumb and very confusing.  can a way be implemented to see text only? or something.  i really dislike the block thing, enough to quit playing, if i can't correctly adorn my gear then why bother playing?

A solo shard quest is included in GU60 you can find a Coldain dwarf in Thurgadin Harbor by the name of Bas that can point you in the right direction. He does require you to gain some faction with Thurgadin before he will let you help him.

I had the same bug on test when examining an item, adornment slots just would not show up, guess this still hasn't been fixed (and yes I bugged it then as well lol)....should be lots of fun

My Feedback on GU60

Itemization and class ballance are a case of the Left hand not knowing what the Right hand is doing.

- Scouts don't need Riposte on their gear

- Fighters need more hate gain on their gear

- All dps classes should have more agro reduction options on their gear

Content

- There should be more easy Raids and x2 zones to better bridge the gap between hard and easy progression

PvP

- The separation of Stats is going to be the death of open world PvP. Open world PvP now consists of players in PvP gear griefing players in PvE gear that are trying to do Public quests.

- Un nerf the dirge epic proc in 2011

Bugs

- Characters are getting trapped in Battle grounds

- See this thread on the blissfull apearance gear that is still broken after 5 years.

As described here, completely wiping a large number of quests from our completed journals is not a very nice thing to do...

We are in the new raid zone (Sullon's Spire) and the zone is hardly playable due to spell/cast lag.

I hope one of the DEVs has double-checked that ALL the collection pieces are actually in-game now and that the final reward is in line with the difficulty of completing ALL of these collections.

It was a massive dissapointment to spend weeks and thousands of plat getting all the DoV pieces only to find out that the master collection was not completable without Drunder and a few other pieces missing due to spawn bugs.  It'll be really sad if there are more spawn issues or bugs or if the rewards are outdated.

Thank you.

I"m currently trying to work on one of the new heritage quests, the one regarding the Legend of Frostone.  I am trying to find the dwarf worked stones around Ry'Gorr Keep in EW, and their spawn time is very very slow.  There is currently one other person trying to find them aside from myself.  I hate to think of the bottleneck this will be when more people start working on it.  I understand if you have faction it's a trivial harvest since there's nothing aggro to worry about, but running around for 15 minutes not finding any is a bit much.  Is this spawn time intended?

Instead we tried Kraytoc HM and had 3 zone crashes within 1 hour. The GU didn't really help zone stability.

Tried the Sullon Spire raid for roughly three hours until we got fed up with 1) the lag, 2) the zone repeatedly crashing and repopping all trash.
