Rain of Fear (RoF2) client now supported

The Prime Healer now supports Rain of Fear (RoF2). There was a time when Titanium was the obvious choice for a classic’esque experience but with continued tweaking and support from the community, the pros now outweigh the cons in RoF2’s favor.

As with any discussion of clients for emulated servers, file changes are necessary for proper functionality. We recommend the following:

  • A clean RoF2 client in a new directory, this will help ensure files/settings for other servers are unchanged.
  • This file pack, overwritten into your new RoF2 directory for play on The Prime Healer.

Optionally, rename or backup the files contained in the TPH_RoF2_Patch.zip with .bak, .old, etc., so they can be reverted later if needed.

Consider RoF2 support in beta for the time being but we’ve been ...

Changelog 9/6/17

  • PoP era spell levels updated
  • Many classic spell particle/animations restored
  • Spell file created for The Prime Healer

Grab our custom server files here. Save your current spells_us.txt file by renaming it spells_us.txt_orig or similar before extracting the contents of the zip into your main EQ directory.

This file will help more closely replicate Planes of Power era spell levels and particle animations. Still a work in progress, (you will see some out of era remnants) but this is a big improvement over the stock live like updated spell animations and new-spells every level approach of later expansions.

Roadmap 1.0

Planned Changes/Revisions

Long term goals include tuning the current play experience to raid most content with 24 characters (including bots if necessary). This will be a lengthy process as all revisions will need to be play-tested. First up Nagafen, Vox, Gorenaire etc…

How long will it take?

How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Roll Pop? Or in other words, hard to say, more than a few weeks; less than a few months for the first round of changes. That said, no reason to let that stop you from creating a character and trying out the rest of the server, there’s plenty to do and see before the dragons.


Game Play Changes

  • Change adventuring level cap to 65
  • Restricting content to Vanilla through The Legacy of Ykesha expansion
  • Remove Defiant Armor ( rem...
