January 2020 Update

The hits keep on coming with two new zones, no more player corpses, and a major Sith Lord overhaul. Check out the full changelist below:

New

Exegol

Play the (spoilers, if you have not seen The Rise of Skywalker) endgame of the Skywalker Saga! Levels 80-100. Exegol brings Rey, Ben Solo, and the Reborn Emperor Palpatine into the game. Seek them out at your peril. Designed by Foosha, so you know who to curse for your deaths. Jump 999.

Lothal

Midbie zone designed for players around level 50. Designed by Viggy, so you know who to thank for your XP. Jump 427.

Legends

The Pit is now open!

Buy a key from the Legend 1 shop (cost: 1 QP), then head to the Mos Eisley underground and search out the entrance, to face a new 101 and a new 120.

More mobs have killed enough characters to become Legendary:

  • Joruus C’Boath
  • The Guardian (Daretta)
  • Ivpikiss
  • Sh’th’Kh
  • Shreeftut
  • Vlekon
  • Project Infiltrator
  • The Termination Droid
  • Hologram of Darth Sidious
  • Admiral Ackbar
  • Tamtel Skreej

New Commands

  • Evaluate corpse identifies everything in the corpse. Useful for kills.
  • Showdamage: shows damage numbers next to your attacks.
  • Screen reader and mobile allow players to show that they’re playing from a mobile device or with a screen reader (or both!)
  • Setprompt now lets you set your prompt, instead of prompt, to reduce the chance of accidentally deleting your prompt when you type prompt.

Improved

Character Corpses Removed

Your EQ now stays with you when you die! You still suffer wounds, subber death (if over level 60), and server death (if served).

Sith Lord Overhaul

Sith Lord received a major overhaul. Here is their skill tree (new and returning skills bolded, changed skills italicized):

60 – Enmity – group Fury
65 – Force Lightning
70 – Fear – 25% attack avoidance when cast on self.
(Note: previously the reduction was much smaller.)
75 – Foresee
80 – Submit – sets alignment to full evil.
85 – Darkness
90 – Despair
95 – Leech Life – regain hitpoints taken from your enemy.
(Note: amount is affected by alignment.)
100 – Essence Transfer
