  • For a long time it was possible to get 17 characters with a name change token. I know this because I've renamed a few characters in the past with 17 character names. But it seems the character limit for the tokens has been changed to 16, and I know …
  • UO does not have tanks. It has chaining specials and then channeling that damage into life leech to maintain health, aka the sampire. There is really no other template that can take damage quite like the sampire. Of course, it begins to fail when yo…
  • Mene_Drachenfels said: What is now also very noticeable is that even in the loot the best items lose their value because they too often have this attribute "Antique". These items are sometimes really crass, as far as the other properties o…
  • Kyronix said: There's been a fair amount of negative feedback about the "Antique" property on various items.  While it would be great to hang on to these items forever, we also have to think long term impacts of the growing power of these ite…
  • Kyronix said: We have a patchwork implementation of systems that answer all these questions - but not a single streamlined one.  Once you add in starting to try to balance player power vs mob power vs the desirability of rewards we are left w…
  • I will also add my support for better log support, as I use my logs quite a bit. Unfortunately there is no automatic file separation for logs. It seems like this could be resolved by, rather than having the client create a file with a name like "De…
  • Kirthag said: Back when EMs first started (I lived in Napa then), I was not very happy with them. Then, one EM made a statement which rings in my head over and over every time I attempt to participate: "The Event Is The Reward" There is only…
  • If you are looking for roleplay I would recommend taking a look at Catskills, which has the most active RP community. We have weekly scheduled tavern nights which you can find here, so feel free to drop by!
  • If the gameplay is so simplistic and elementary that it's possible to drag 9 dummy accounts through an encounter, then perhaps we have bigger problems.
  • It's been awhile since I've farmed for minax artifacts, but when I did I usually went after the captains. My template is Swords/Tactics/Bushido/Parry/Healing/Anat. I wouldn't advise using a sampire because some of the captains have anti-life leech a…
  • 1. I'm really not a strong military or warrior personality. I'm much more comfortable with healers, mages, etc. However, I want the program to recognize both play styles in some way. I'd like to have two paths. In July, when we start, you woul…
  • I might be misinterpreting your post but it sounds to me like you're unsure how distribution works, so here is a description, and apologies if you already knew. Basically if you do enough damage/mitigation/healing to get looting rights on the boss, …
  • It's not that pure warriors became weak, it's that other avenues to achieve power were introduced that cultivated imbalance. Damage modifier (slayers, EoO, honor) combined with the leech / special move combinations have ultimately resulted in templa…
  • Note, the date for this has been changed to Wednesday, March 13th.
  • I'm not 100% caught up on the thread, and all of this is probably pie in the sky ideas, but here it is anyways. My suggestions: 1. Introduce different chest categories (in addition to the standard chests). These different categories would have loot …
  • Kyronix said: Whether or not you should be able to fire the cannons without standing near them remains TBD.  I had originally thought about being able to hire NPC crews to fire the cannons for you to accomplish this, but this dramatically inc…
  • Currently it requires up to 5 crafting skills to put together the firing necessities: blacksmithing, tinkering, tailoring, alchemy and cooking. This should be reduced to just tinkering and alchemy, my suggestion for what goes where is this: Tinkerin…
  • I've got the CDs and manuals/maps for UO and all the expansions I've gotten over the years tucked away in a bin, and now I've got that 20th anniversary mug that I use fairly regularly. I used to have that Blackthorn figurine, but it seems to have be…
  • lol What are you even blabbering about. I don't have an issue with these items being sold in the store, I just think than a store item that is one-use and cannot be retained should have a lower price.
  • To be honest, I'm okay with the concept of one-use purchases, like hair dyes or perhaps even in this case hair styles, but if they are going to be that way then the price should factor that in. The old phrase "nickel and dime" applies here (though I…
  • Honestly even $4 is too much in my opinion, because you can't keep the hairstyle if you change to something else. I mean, I don't change my characters' hair styles very often, but I'd hate to think I'm stuck with a fancy hairstyle because I don't wa…
  • I don't understand why this is even a thing. What is the gameplay value of having to chop the logs? There is no skill involved, no loss. The amount of time it takes is negligible. If boards had to be processed in some way that took time, gold, loss,…
  • I really rather loathe the question being posed in this thread because it is irrelevant and also strikes me as slightly underhanded. The implication I read here is that since a lot of players would take the path of less resistance if offered, well m…
  • I've never liked how the belfry worked at all. The fact that the bell will spawn drakes even on people who are on the tower is ridiculous (because what if one of those drakes drop the wing? Makes no sense). It might make more sense if the wing broug…
  • I do wish the "elves only" property was removed. I don't really see the point of it when there is no human only armor.

  • We will be meeting at the Keg & Anchor tonight a little bit earlier, at around 7:45 PM EST for some pre-event RP. All are welcome.

  • Dot_Warner said:LRC doesn't "neuter the game," stop being hyperbolic. 1) My argument is not that LRC neuters the game. My argument is that 100% LRC neuters the game. It appears that your opening statement already misunderstands (and misrepresent…
