    @Mariah preparing for a rant on an other discussion I couldn't find hardware requirement for UO. Could you please add a page with them and what the powers that be recommend for hardware? 
    It could save some on some fights and closed discussions.

    If they are up somewhere the main page or the "Play For Free Now" link needs to be up dated

    If your computer can connect to the internet, it can most likely run UO?

    But I couldn't find any official answer to this either.  Interesting.
  • The last time I remember seeing hardware recommendations for UO was when Kingdom Reborn was released.

    Mommy what's a CD-rom?
    I tell you the truth, tis better to do 10 damage on the right target than 100 damage on the wrong target.

    I am a relatively new player and i use the UOGuide a lot. It is a pity that it does not receive more update.

    Melee damage and spell damage for all spells to start. Honestly, anything you can provide that would insight into the mechanics of the game would be nice. 

    The formulas are out there, you just have to look.  We use the damage formulas on our taming website for damage calculators.  We looked for the formulas, verified they were indeed accurate and added them.  

    There are resources and tools out there. Several of the devs used to be avid posters on Stratics.  Those formulas have not changed since then.

    I've seen the melee damage formulas (PS, why does the mastery damage bonus exceed the cap(s)?  Its the only way I could account for a variance in testing last time I did it.)  But please kindly show me where all the spell damage formulas are?

    This would put them in (kinda) centralized location.

    Here is an old one.
    https://uo.stratics.com/content/basics/spelldamage.php

    She could verify it works and add it somewhere in this area.

    Like they say, be specific and ask her to add what you want.  There are no secret formulas.

    I'll admit, I did not know about that.  Thank you!

    What I find useful from uoguide is the information about the various creatures.  For example the info about the dark wisp on the page http://www.uoguide.com/Dark_Wisp
    I would not have known that a small piece of blackrock would help me fight one and using a flame strike spell would be better than my default chain lightning spell.

    To be fair the uo wiki had this on that page:
    ”Eval Int is the skill that allows a mage to function offensively, without it spells will do less than 10 damage. The formula for damage increase through evaluate intelligence skil is: ((Evaluate Intelligence * 3) / 100) + 1.”


    I tell you the truth, tis better to do 10 damage on the right target than 100 damage on the wrong target.

    The problem with that one is it says:
    Please note that the formulas on this page have not been confirmed by the developers and may be slightly inaccurate
