  • Few comments Seems like all vendor items should be put in a RDBMS when put up for sale then there is no 'updating' its the only place this data lives real time.  For searches - they have categories to select rings, braces, helmets etc - why not a…

  • I'd like to at least sort alphabetically.  Then when I'm looking for 'sleeves' they are all togetehr instead of all over the book. Paging 50 times to find sleeves is no fun. (10 per page - 500 bods)
  • You need to read up on training pets and how to use the crazed mage. There is a single spawn of one in shame  near the unbound vortexes.  They can kill you pretty quick.  You need to get your pet on it and turn on skill gain. They will gain insanely…
  • Marge said: Actually, gaining by taming makes perfect sense for a skill called animal TAMING. To gain points for fighting with the pet, the skill would need to be called animal TRAINING. Not that I don't think it would be nice to get gains th…
  • Sell full spellbooks on mage vendors for 75k. If you want to make and sell cheaper - fine - but 75k is easy to make in 30 min even for a new player and solves the problem.  Maybe in the early days this was fun - but no one has fun making spellbooks.…
  • Annoying isn't it? Magery vendors should sell full mage, necro, spellweave, myst spellbooks for 75k each.  If someone wants to make them and sell cheaper - fine - but no  one in this game is making a living off sell spellbooks.    It sucks that you …
  • I would be happy if you got a chance at taming skill gain by commanding your pet or when you pet successfully kills something.  As it stands - the only way to gain taming is tame new pets. Thats not playing a tamer. Playing a tamer is hunting with s…

  • Damn thats so sad.  Must be a bi-product of the IDOC roll out.  90 days after it was rolled out these houses hit the decay cycle. Oops. 
  • I kinda hate 'shard bound' items unless they are consumables. As a vet with shard shields - it takes a lot of effort to build a suit and if some of the items cannot shard transfer then where does that leave me to hop and explore other shards?  If yo…
  • Or don’t buy any homes from him. Pretty easy to blacklist. At some point he won’t want to pay for 40 accounts to hold houses no one is buying.   Glad I don’t play ATL. Just sell junk there and take gold home.  I agree that one of the fun things in g…
  • Loriel is correct. They created naming packages whereby a particular named item will get a package of mods.  Like wizardry adds Lrc lmc int mana etc.  The idea was twofold - first make items more useful so that it has all casting or all fighting mod…
    in no names Comment by Theo June 2
  • Feels like they are notably absent just turning on old events to keep people busy with no real progress.  Not really understanding what is going on. Most people can work from home in the tech space and things are going gangbusters for other gaming c…
  • Can’t believe I’m going to agree with popps but I do.  The weapons are generally trash. A few high mods but most dexers are samplers. We need whirlwind weapons and AI weapons with speed. The stuff these invasion mobs drop are trash. I don’t care wha…
    in Loot Rules Comment by Theo May 15
  • You aren't alone.  It is by far the WORST account management system of all time.  You have a Mythic Account. An Ea Account.  A UO account and three different log ins to do different things at different levels.   Its absolutely insane.  Just trying t…
  • jelinidas said: popps said: Issue. Considering how few Tamers apparently have on their Template the Veterinary skill and actively use it on a regular basis, there look to be issues with this skill if many Tamers in UO choose no…
  • Pawain said: So you want vet to work from many tiles away. As usual you want to change UO because you find something difficult or inconvenient.  You don't know the res potions don't always work and you don't know that vet at 120 gives you a …
  • This thread is pointless.  Vet provides the ability to rez your pet, to heal your pet and to heal it regardless of poison or just damages (mage healing is a PITA because just as you cast heal it gets poisoned and you have to recast).   A tamer usin…
  • So I decided to do some math.  I calculated the leather and bone cost per large bod group assuming you made all EX pieces and then I did another that calculated how much leather you are likely to use since you will make some non EX junk.   Note that…
  • And I can't edit this anymore but I mispoke on the Bone being 4 - its a five piece just like studded but my point still stands - its harder to complete than a studded and should get more points. Cloth 5 piece should still be less than footwear 4 pie…
  • I was just using blank scrolls as an example.  Why do I have to go to 3 vendors to buy 200 blank runes if I want to make a bunch of Runic Atlas?  Why do I need to go and buy up a dozen mages if I want mage regs to craft with?  Why do I need to buy u…
  • Thank you! This is much better info!  One note is that on the record dress macro you should but a note that you dress yourself first then hit the macro and it stores what you last equipped. It’s counterintuitive. I would hav3 assumed you press recor…
    in Macro Command List Comment by Theo May 3
  • Lol, thx. Only a year ago. 
  • Exactly - as others have said - please explain each of these in the list and how to use them.  What does each of these mean for example?  SetUpdateRange ModifyUpdateRange IncreaseUpdateRange DecreaseUpdateRange I haven't the slightest clue what th…
  • For me I enjoy my thunter built on Magery and Taming.  Animal Lore 120 Animal Taming 115 and rising... Cartography 100 Lockpicking 100 Magery 110 Remove Trap 85 Rest currently in Med with a little Veterinary.  I actually have 85 tame with 30 worth…
  • I imagine them removing herding so we don't get all those useless blues and pinks as drops.  While they are at it - remove camping too.  No need to revive these old skills.   While they are at it - give us a chance at taming gains while we vet our …
  • Exactly.  Plus sometimes I'd be binding up pinks and not have the 5.0 finished but someone wants to use it or I want to use it - why can't I just use it like a pink? What the heck is the problem?  It still requires someone to craft the binder.  Why …
    in Binding Scrolls Comment by Theo April 22
  • The AFK stuff doesn't really bother me. I actually like the unattended tamers because I grab the loot from their kills to unravel.    What I really would have liked to have seen is adding Leuro's mempo as a turn in reward.   Thats the only thing wor…
  • Toxic siths for me.  Get magery jewels and a stack of EV scrolls. You don’t need GM magery if you have scrolls to cast from.
