    If you search for Recipes on EQ2U, you have a Category option. These are all hand-tagged by me, Pijotr, and Niami.

    You can also view the Master Recipe Book list on EQ2U and filter them by category.

    Not sure how many use this.

    I've never used it as I've rarely needed to search for recipe data outside my in-game book. But I've just poked at it and woah - that must be one almighty query you've built behind that interface. And a helluva lot of work the 3 of you must have put in to get all those categories attached by hand. Your efforts are appreciated. :cool:

    That page is... chonky. It's also 12MB of HTML loading all at once.

    Yeah when I first came out with Recipes on EQ2U, a feature I wrote entirely myself, I made mistakes in the queries that were causing the server to get overloaded and crash. Dethdlr (who had done all the backend on all previous EQ2U features and pages) had to come back and rewrite my queries and fix some bugs.

    I'm curious how many people use EQ2U for recipes. I would think the "search for all recipes with a specific component" would be popular, but what do I know. :)

    I generally use the recipes for searching for spell upgrades for class and ascension but nothing really else.

    With tremendous thanks to Alarra, EQ2U has now been updated with 196 new quests from Reign of Shadows and a few straggler quests from Blood of Luclin. As we no longer receive quest data from the EQ2 team, this data has required a tremendous amount of hand-entering and research to get. It does not contain quest rewards (coin, items, status, or faction) or starter/description text.

    Quests before: 13,247
    Quests after: 13,443

    and some other stats if you're wondering:
    Quests excluded: 113 -- test/temp quests
    Quests expired: 5,008 -- no longer available in-game

    Also fixed an annoying bug where the Google Adsense code would load but then not draw, so there would be a transparent box in front of the navigation tabs making it impossible to use the Character Tabs.

    Added Tarinax to server list and confirmed that leaderboards are running on that server.
    Added Tarinax to guild/character shortlinks.

    I'm curious, if you don't mind sharing - how has traffic to the site been during RoS, compared to prior expansions?

    Gradually trending down. No precipitous drop that I can see. I guess most EQ2 players are still ok with the dog food.
