  • A separate observation: you also can’t use Focus Attack with an enchanted weapon. This appears to be intentional, but I found it to be a unexpected restriction.
  • It is unclear, and the distinction they’re trying to draw between multi-client and multi-boxing is unnecessary. What they should just say is controlling multiple accounts at the same time is fine, so long as it’s not done through unauthorized progr…
  • To play devil's advocate, the team would probably just get flamed anyway: "Why are you working on New Legacy? What a waste of time!" "I'm going to cancel one of my seven accounts if you don't do X!" "Add X to the UO store! Do it now!" (This one I f…
  • Pawain said: Almost all my melee toons have Chivalry and bushido.  In pvm I have never missed resist. You can use apples and orange petals. Also you can put 99 recall scrolls in your atlas and travel. No need for magery. I like Resist on …
  • Sorry, Mariah, I meant to post this in the bugs forum if you wouldn't mind moving it. Edit: Nevermind. Looks like you're able to move it yourself while it's still editable.
  • Chivalry doesn’t require medable armor, surely? My understanding is that medable armor is only something you need on templates with Meditation. In fact, you do not want medable armor on melee templates so that you overlap your Lower Mana Cost.
  • Bumping this thread because I'm bitter. It isn't fun to have to rely on the Stuck option, to cheese the game with a second account, or to traverse the featureless nothingness that is Malas. You're in the Malas overworld. You aren't in a dungeon. You…

  • My hope is that the team, at a minimum, shares a roadmap for development that we can expect in 2023, regardless of the nature of that development. More wishfully, my hope is that this development cycle occurs on a monthly basis, not quarterly. In t…
  • Thanks for double checking, Mariah
  • Let me put it this way: Shard bound is not causing inflation on any shard. What it is doing is creating a market on each shard that is better adjusted to the supply/demand on that shard alone. It just happens that costs are very high across all sha…
  • Scrolled through the thread but having a hard time following the economic argument. Costs are what they are on different shards due to the difference in the supply on account of the difference in participants. This doesn’t in itself indicate inflat…
  • The site goes down every month or so. It looks like it was built using Wordpress. Google indicates a 503 is nebulous and could be a problem with the host or a plugin. It could also be caused by the site being unable to handle the level of traffic (t…
  • Bumping this old thread, as I encountered it while taking a mystic thrower for a spin in Deceit . Enchant Weapon appears to bug your boomerangs such that Mystic Arc no longer works. Thanks to GM Noctua for promptly resolving the issue.
  • Agree with the OP's sentiment. I don't really play a sampire, but I always thought it would be fine enough to just disallow mounts while in vampire form. This wouldn't require large mechanical changes and would be consistent with all other "form" sp…
  • In general, bards are suboptimal for these events. As another person posted, an Archer Bard is okay. My bard is 4x (Discord, Prov, Music, Peace) with 120 Archery and 120 Chivalry. With skill jewels, I can lower Archery and Chivalry and get enough ta…
  • @Kyronix & @Bleak A changelog from a while back indicated that a fix for this was put in place, but it seems to be worse based on my experience with the Deceit event. For example, I see that this can even affect players when they die, and I ha…
  • @Kyronix & @Bleak thank you for fixing this
  • It’s a decent compromise and may create fun spikes in activity. The PVP community is probably already pretty small, and I expect folks will rotate across shards. Still, it would be more straightforward to have the event in Fel at all times on all s…
  • JohnKnighthawke said: loop said:  we shouldn't determine the success of updates based solely on their impact to subscription numbers. Umm.....UO is a business. It's here to make money for EA. The fact that we enjoy it is just sort…
  • McDougle said:  No one else notices or finds odd the complete lack of mention or updates on NL... I don't blame the team for not giving an update on New Legacy. There is no benefit to offering "we have nothing to show right now". If anyth…
  • But if the New Legacy Shard will get most of its players from the current Production Shards and from Siege/Mugen, players who already have a subscription, this might cause gameplay problems to current UO players remaining to play the Production Shar…

  • So I'm pretty stupid and figured it out: I was fooling around my house and noticed that the chest had switched back: it now had all the bracelets I had stored but was missing the soulstone fragments. After a minute, I realized that the chest was n…
  • Urge said: Wait until shift change and page again.  In these words ask if a GM could check your house for possible bugs with lockdowns to prevent further item loss.  They should give you a concrete answer if it's fixed or if you need to dem…
  • Urge said: Should page a GM to check your house. I once bought a house that ate items and containers because the lockdowns became bugged. A GM can check and fix this.  I paged a GM, and the reply I got was what I expected: "We are unable…
  • My house is basically empty except for the first floor. This chest was a secured one on top of another secured one. I do not have a lot of interesting items in terms of storage or utility, except for 3 mostly full jewelry boxes, a jawbone, a crystal…
