Dark Guardian Room Change

When did they change the number of guardians that spawn in the Doom Dark Guardian room?  Used to be that summons would increase the number of guardians that spawned... today not so much.  I don't remember seeing that in any publish notes.

    Two Guardians spawn for each character/pet in the room.  been like this forever the pet is not counted if you are riding it though.

    A Goblin, a Gargoyle, and a Drow walk into a bar . . .

    It has been exactly that way.  I went today with my mystic/weaver and could not get more than 2 guardians total to spawn no matter what I tried... 

    I normally summon 5 pixies... tried that... 2 guardians...
    Summoned an RC... 2 guardians...
    I brought down a horse... 2 guardians...
    I created an EJ account and brought down another character... 2 guardians...
  • must have changed with the recent patch, i'll check a few as well.

  • Tried it on Cats, Siege and Origin,  two guardians only with me and my Pet(s) @Kyronix ; Stealth nerf or unintended change?

    This was an exploit fix.  That's all I can comment about that.  
  • Good enough for me, thanks for the reply.

    So mirror image was an exploit ? seriously ?

       Might consider capping it at 4 instead of 2 but how it was being used was more than a bit over the top....... Obviously.

    Pretty lame but it was fun while the room worked as designed. Wasn't even in the patch notes @Kyronix
    . Good find. Another day, another nerf :)

    Yea was good cleanup points. Devs should have capped it at 10 guardians (1 person + 5 followers), but seems the lame road was quicker so they went this one  :| RIP dark guardian room.

    All is not lost. You still get maps and if you wait a minute you get two more maps if it is just you in there.  I have confirmed that a second paid character in the room with you will give you two additional guardians to kill. That is four guardians at a time instead of two.  I have not checked what happens if an EJ character is in the room with you.

    True, only nerfed by 80% for people holding a single account. Same grind, 5 times longer. I didnt know using summons was considered an exploit  :o

    This nerf probably did affect those who were scripting the room.  See the other threads in the Oceania forum.

    And as usual, the nerf does affect those who are not scripting the room the most. Just super cheap solution.. frame it like you want to.. whatever..

    Not even going into how it is possible that GMs never noticed people paging on him. If I say one wrong word here @Mariah never takes less than a day to remove it and I can promise there is a whole log of anything I did wrong here since day one. Wish they showed that dedication in-game.

    JollyJade, the forum moderators have no ability to affect in-game changes. The GMs have zero ability to affect changes on the official forums. Comparing the two is ludicrous.

    You are both doing customer service for Ultima Online. Just at different places and - obviously - by very different standards.

    I've only farmed that room one time, using mirror image, which appeared to me to be an actual game mechanic, and quite dangerous if you didn't have the right template in place. If someone used an exploit or EJ's then it should have been a specific fix for that exploit, but ruining yet another aspect of the game with a "fix"...just makes me let out another sigh...
