UO Loot Filter
biggest problem when playing UO is I simply do not know what is worth keeping
and what is worth unraveling. No doubt I have unraveled some really good items
because I just didn’t know better.
I spend a lot of
my time digging up level 5 and 6 treasure maps and fishing up SOSs so I have
no shortage of items to sift through.
I am in the process of using an Excel spreadsheet to help me identify items I should consider keeping.
Here is my process:
1) I put all my
weapons and armor in a bag that I get from the treasure map.
2) In UO Assist, I
make use of the Vendor Bag feature where I can export the contents of the bag
to the clipboard.
3) I past the clipboard into Excel.
4) I have a second sheet in Excel that helps me summarize
I am sure most of you know the maximum % of ‘Swing Speed Increase’ for instance. I don’t. I don’t know if 10% is good or 100% is good etc. I am starting to learn.Additionally, I want to put most of the limits in Excel. So if an items has the potential to be 50% and the item I have is at 50%, it is worth reviewing.
Better yet, items that have certain related characteristics
and at a certain threshold are certainly worth reviewing. IE, total resists +
luck + lower reagent cost.
So now for the questions…
Are there are any rules you could think of right away that
would help me in my journey? IE, ‘if the item has 75 resists, 100 luck and 10%
lower mana cost’ it would be worth reviewing. Or, ‘look for jewelry that has at
least these three characteristics x% SDI, y+ INT and z Luck’.
Thanks for any insight and direction. I’ve read a whole lot
of articles since my return but probably missed some good discussions. Feel free to
include links to any previous discussions that help you.
PS: This Excel document does not have macros, it is all
built in functions. I would have no problem sharing my work in progress if
anybody else would find my work in progress beneficial.
PSS: Some of you fishermen out there may know me out there. I created the excel fishing spreadsheet about 10 years ago that helps converted SOS coordinates to the x,y format for easy map import.
