Just wanted to see what everyone else has been doing now that is has been a week since the event officially ended. I started doing other stuff probably mid treasures event due to my overall disappointment with how it ended up so just wanted to see how others were passing the time to see if maybe I've overlooked something to do. 

Providing a poll of things I've kind of done over the past month or so but also giving an "other" option for something I might have missed. I'm sure people have done more than one so when you vote just pick the option that has taken the most of your time (ie best fit)

    Resource gathering mostly - mining for saltpeter & ingots, goblin spawn for goblin blood, citadel for spellweave scrolls and really good chiv/mage gains on a variety of pets. Stocking vendors and crafting stock, catching non-tamer pets for my pet stall, building up Sacrifice on all fighting chars so I'm ready for the next event. Digging up the maps that piled up during the event.

    Sometimes I spend a little time in Void pool gathering points to spend on maps and talis from Vela. As a group, I've been on hunts to Blackthorn's too.

    Playing less but when I do...Some resource gathering (need feathers and arrows), a bit of treasure hunting, a little decorating, probably going to do some pirate hunting soon.

    I don't have time to play a lot weekly and it takes a lot to retain my attention so i put other. I have 6 hours in this event at best. 

    I do little things that bring me consistent gold and building a goodie bag when i finally get shard shields. 

    I've really been thinking about starting completely new on another shard and working my way up.

    I always start my day with trying to clean my houses.
    but then i get easily distracted.

    example: I came across snake charmer flutes
    so I went down into the Abyss to try to get Medusa eggs.
    when I went to put up that stuff I needed to pull out my crafter
    so she could put that stuff away.
    And since I was on her, I remembered that I hadn't checked my stumps and sheep.
    I put that stuff away. And then had to take my miner to collect my ore from the ore cart.

    then I decided to go back to trying to clean house.
    I came across a SOS and decided to stop cleaning house
    and go fish up the part I needed for zipy.
    then realized I had about 100 MIBs, so I opened them.
    I got about 5 of them, so I went out to get the white nets they provide.
    (now about 100 SOS later, I finally drydocked my ship)

    next time, I might try to clean house
    but usually when I start to do that
    I just switch to doing BODs

    =======

    when I pay attention to the time
    I go to guild events
    last event I attended was shadowguard

    Restocking vendors and shopping. 

    Then some of the hundreds of other things that you can do in UO.

    It is a good list of things to keep you entertained for hours and hours.

    There's a million other things to do. It's just most aren't worth doing. 

    Besides farming for gold and resources, the problem is the team has almost made it where nothing is really worth doing anymore but a few select things for decent armor. Now i can understand the rewards being limited.

    More importantly WHY and why completely unannounced 
    Acknowledgment and accountability go a long way...

    To give you 1 more thing to complain about?

    The announcement will follow. I yelled out on LS and will continue all day.

    Also we find stuff before the devs are ready.  These were probably put in by hand and they are not finished. So they will announce when complete.

    Why do you always label asking for communication as complaining?

    Awesome! Thanks, Larisa and Pawain. :-)

    I’ve mainly been using my scribe. Making spellbooks, filling them, putting them on a vendor. I don’t really need the gold but I find it rewarding to make things that people actually buy.

    Well just as I stated, once all shards got them, they were announced.

    The new lanterns are great. Thanks for the tip. Many times the messages do not show up during the patch prior to sign in, so I miss notices like this. As for what I have been doing, Thieving through all the different spawn locations.
  • PawainPawain Posts: 6,527
    We should pay attention to what @Cinderella says. When UO.com is down between events you should look for goodies.

    I see @Larisa collecting hers on Legends.

    I would like to work on Bulk Order deeds also to reduce my stock of BODs...

    But then, I think about the issues related to having to continuously move resources in and out of my backpack, to have to fill crafted items in the BODs 1 at a time and I get deterred and abandon the idea....

    I wished, that there was a Working Station available whereas one could lock it down and it could store unlimited amount of resources as all locked down containers can do BUT, this one Working Station special container, the crafter could use the tools in one's own backpack on the unlimited resources that the Working Station can store and, the BOD in one's own backpack would automatically detect the crafted item and, if matching with what the BOD needs, it would automatically be filled into the BOD without the crafter having to do it 1 item at a time...

    This way, filling BODs would be way more player friendly and way less annoying...

    Just set the tool to craft X items using the Working Station stored resources, and watch the BODs in one's own bacpack self-fill without needing to do anything else...

    A dream come true and a much more player friendly BOD filling.....

    WOW Who fills BODs one at a time other than you.  Maybe you should read about all the new tools that are on BODs.  Guess you haven't done BODs in what over 5 years.  Maybe you should just ask the DEVs to fill them for you.

    With particular notice to this gump:

    small-bod

    and the text that is underneath it on the page.

    you keep asking for a work bench to store resources.

    I actually would prefer that you could create items
    with supplies from your bank
    (this is done in other games, so it is doable)
    of course, it might be a little bit trickier if you have different colors of cloth there

    I actually use EC to do my BODs though
    because you can create a restock feature
    (you can use the miner & lumberjack satchel for the destination container)
    1 click and it refills

    [they really need to add a tanner satchel for the different leathers)
