Laurion's Song and Site Updates

The new expansion Laurion's Song is here folks. I've been busy working on all the info since beta kicked off.

I've opened up the wiki for everyone. Take a look https://everquest.allakhazam.com/wiki/eq:Laurions_Song_Overview

Items were just uploaded today so it'll take a bit for us to get everything tagged and attached where they need to go. I gave all items a Laurion's Song expansion tag so it's at least searchable for now if you're using the advanced item search.

Tradeskill recipes can be found on the wiki for now until we can get them all created via the database.

Merchants should have all of their items attached except for the group and raid currency vendors, we'll get that taken care of soon.

There are still some items were missing that'll need to be uploaded via sod's item collector. We appreciate sod for having an open item export so we can import items into our site.
