    Why are you pressing armor ignore 48 times per minute? I once suggested a pvm damage cap on the damage of armour ignore like they have in pvp to give some variety however a moderator decided it was pointless:
    I tell you the truth, tis better to do 10 damage on the right target than 100 damage on the wrong target.

    How about making the other abilities do some damage and we would have more choices.  Same with pets.

    Is that a nerf stick in your avatars hand?

    Increase damage of other specials yes sure it’s the same thing, six of one, half a dozen of the other. I wrote in my suggestion:
    “(They would probably have to reduce the hp of some bosses)”

    But if they increase the damage of every other special they would have to increase the hp of monsters. 

    Same difference. 

    I have 20 pets with Armour Ignore, it’s really sad.

    no offtopic please..
    you are asking for changing game mechanics..
    im asking for a simple "special move always on" toggle.. its very easy to implement

    im gonna say no.  UO combat is pretty simple (its always been about timing more than anything), if that option were added you could basically just AFK everything.  i realize its not really hard to an experienced player, but timing that 1.25 seconds is at least something to mentally engage with the game.   If its added for special move, then might as well add it to everything.  at which point absolutely no point to touching the keyboard at all.  ever.

    Yeah allowing ppl to play while afk doesn't sound so good.

    people who want to play afk are doing it anyway..

    pushing same button 48 times per minute its not healthy for fingers and there are other things and abilities in combat to concentrate on
    consecrate/enemy of one/remove curse/divine fury/cleanse by fire/dispel evil/evasion/confidence/drinking potions/eating apples/switching weapons/switching equipment/changing position and so on. all of them are situational and require attention for good timing.

    it is only armor ignore and double strike that require brainless pushing every 1.25s over and over again

    Yeah because that's not already happening all over the lands..
    You and Several Others like this.


    Please make the Grizzled Mare a 5 slot mount, it's incredibly rare and deserves it.

    so your solution to that is to make it even easier to play while afk?

    Why only Classic Client?

    And i voted no.
    Hitting a button 48 times per minute or so is nothing compared to other games like Warframe where have to hit like hundred per minute and tons of mouse clicks and mouse-buttons per minute.

  • It is my belief that if the developers wanted you to have the ability to chain specials in this way the description of special moves wouldn't include the line:

    Using a special move within 3 seconds of the previous special move costs double mana,

    enabling toggle for auto special move will not let players afk..
    if you dont press buttons then game will disconnect you..

    if they wanted so they would make delay between specials not the increased mana cost.
    mana is easily recoverable with high mana leech and high damage.


    Tamers have pets that do armor ignore, cast spells, walk around and they dont have to press buttons..

    but sampires have to press ?

    This is true about tamers. I regularly put consume damage on and go afk as it lasts forever, they should put a short timer on it. 
    I tell you the truth, tis better to do 10 damage on the right target than 100 damage on the wrong target.
