SOE has posted the patch notes for Game Update 47 for EverQuest II, which integrates the Station Voice voicechat feature into the game.
Station Voice is now available!
Equipment changes have been introduced to improve item progression from levels 1 - 59 worldwide.
Check out the sections below for details on these highlights and other details of "Storm Break" (GU47).
"Storm Break" (GU47): Librarian Feldarn of Freeport's Academy of Arcane Science and Librarian Dungil of Qeynos' Concordium are looking for volunteers to help battle the onslaught of darkness from beyond.
Qeynos and Freeport have broken ground on major construction projects just off of the coast of Antonica and Commonlands respectively. Visit the docks to see the new activity!
*A new Voice Bar will appear that provides options and indicates who is currently speaking and when you're talking. It can be docked with any chat windows.
*A new Voice Users window will show all users in the current channel. This window can be changed to be transparent and show only active speakers if you'd like.
*Group and Raid windows have speaking indicators to show who is currently speaking.
*Voice options are available in the Options Menu under the "Voice Chat" tab.
*If you're not currently in a voice channel, you will be placed in the first channel that becomes available. Subsequent channels that become available can be selected through a dropdown on the Voice Users window, a button on the Voice Bar, or a link that appears in text chat.
*Left Control is the default push-to-talk key. You can change the key in the "Voice Chat" tab of the Options Menu.
*If you need more info, do "/help vchat" in game.
