Legendary Mapmaker's Glasses

I was under the impression the +1-5 Cartography Glasses functioned like the  "Blackmithing Gloves of Mining +1-5" gloves, as the skill bonus from that item brings your skill to 101.0-105.0 despite Mining being capped at 100.0 with no powerscrolls for the skill,  The glasses do not bring your cartography skill over 100.0. is that Intended?

Also, in the patch notes it says
  • Minor Artifacts (All packages, Supply)
    • Legacy Minor artifacts & Pub 67 Artifacts
    • Legendary Cartography Glasses (+1-5 Cartography)
However, I just found +6 cartography bonus Glasses. Perhaps it's a typo, and they spawn with +1 - +10 (+20?) ?



Remove or change casting focus & poison immunity it reduces the need for "Player Skill" it's garbage. rant2 Bring timing back and eliminate chance in pvp!

    WOW  SUPER rare sell it for 100P before they fix it.

    I just came here to ask the same question. Is it intended that the glasses do NOT take you above 100 skill? Or is that a display issue?

    +6 huh? Hmm....

    The glasses do not take you above 100 skill.  Their only real use is giving you a slight boost when digging up treasure chests to get you a gold or normal chest instead of a rusty one.

    So, the glasses do give you a skill boost when you are below 100 cartography.
    i.e. if you have 0 Cartography and put on a pair of +2 glasses, you will have 2.0 Cartography.

    Does this mean the glasses are only useful for those below 100 cartography?

    Be nice to get some clarification here. (I'm testing now with a pair of +5's to see if it helps with chests at all at 100 Carto Skill).

    Also, they are exceptional, can be powdered, looks like imbued too, but I never pushed the finalize button. I'm guessing enhanced as well?
    +Cart skill doesn't look to take up an imbuing slot or have property weight. I might mess with a pair later...

    The intent for these items is to go from +1 through +5.  Anything spawning above that will eventually be set to the correct maximums.

    We are investigating the issue regarding the inability to get the skill bonus, however we will need some additional information to try and reproduce this internally, 

    • What is your current character's cartography skill?
    • What is your skill total?
    • Which client are you using? If you are using the EC, are you using any non-default UIs?
    • What is the +cartography value on the glasses you are equipping?

    Current Cartography Skill: 100
    Skill Total: 720
    EC: Default, no mods
    +2 and +5 (Both behave the same way - neither shows skill above 100 - yes, I clicked the ShowReal/ShowModified button.)

     1) Characters real Cartography Skill 100.0.
     2) 720.0, 725.0 with the Despicable Quiver +5 archery (unused in my template)
     3) Classic Client with UO-Assist
     4) +1 & +6  I've tried two different pairs of Glasses.


     The Legendary Mapmaker's Glasses aren't able to be reforged or Enhanced either, to reach the same luck values as items that are (150-190 luck), is this intended as well?

    Can't you just look at the code for the mining gloves?  How do they go over the skillcap?

    Just for testing, has anyone tried using the glasses on a character without cartography skill? Tried other races and gender?

    They use the same backend functionality.  Thanks everyone for the input.

    I just got a pair of +1 glasses and used them on my treasure hunter that only has real 94.4 cartography skill.  With the glasses on, her cartography skill shows as 95.4 and then 94.4 when using the "Show Real" button.
