  • I have experienced this one, and I hope it gets fixed soon, but in the meantime. I discovered by accident one day while fighting Rikktor that there is a sort of work around to reduce the annoyance a little.  I was retreating when he 'huffed' till af…
  • First you need to work out exactly which ones are 'rubbish', because herding, for one, isn't useless. Many players have an active herder and use them regularly, me included. Just because you have no use for the skill, doesn't mean no one else has. 
  • Am I the only one who remembers that the biggest complaint about the game client, before KR, was that the graphics were too 'dated'?  That's why we got completely different graphics in the newer client. KR had to be scaled back a bit, not just becau…
  • Bugs Bunny is a 'toon'  Road Runner is a 'toon'. In game I have characters, chars for short.

  • My understanding is. We log in to UO to play the game. If we are running around Tokuno killing stuff, we are playing the game. Yes? If some people choose to do one activity in game to the exclusion of any other, thereby turning that activity into a …
  • an hour of a player's life that he was playing the game?  Isn't that the general idea? I'm only doing the quest once per day, the rest of my playing time I do something else. Like trying to get the darn gargoyle chest piece off the acid elemental re…
  • Whitewolf said: ok go tell that to everyone in the fire beetle area spamming EQ, whirlwind and thunderstorm, i really dont care i have no reason to tame one, was just pointing out how absurd your comment is about it not affecting regular …
  • Oy! don't shout at me!  I was only answering questions.
  • Merus said: Spell woven britches can be altered (from memory). Hawkwinds would require a transmogrification potion or a converted tabard. Confirmed, spell woven britches can be altered. just tried it on test center.
  • Seth said: By looking at the max sdi suit for gargoyle, we can see clearer which slots are still lacking. Currently this info is not readily available (or anyone has a link?) in that they are out there but not a summarized and usable (handpic…
  • I have not had this problem, and yesterday I was changing characters in rapid succession, seeking an item I knew was in a bank box, but not which character had it.
  • My preferred food is chocolate, but I'm willing to eat potatoes too. My definition of 'preferred' doesn't preclude anything else. 
  • I prefer the static 'rowboat' method for lobsters, a video of which is on my youtube channel using it I have fished the same spot for up to an hour. I have been asked to explain the macros I use, so here's it is. Placing the pots the macro is simpl…
  • I will admit that it would be nice to be able to keep an eye out for new players needing help without losing touch with the general activity of the shard. 
  • I've been 'locked in' to this game for over 20 years now. I don't need a financial incentive to stay, I stay because of the enjoyment I get from playing it and from the daily interaction with the friends I've made all over the world along the way.
  • I can't date it exactly, but it's been an awful long time since you could mark runes like three of the green ones in this book Most telling is, the first character I made on our own account (I pinched a slot on our son's account for 3 months befor…
  • The whole question is moot anyway, devs have said that cross shard vendor search isn't technically doable because of the way the shards are set up, the same with any idea to just go to another shard via a moongate. It can't be done.
  • @Seth you, sir, have an over cynical view of the type of people who play this game. On pretty much every server a new or returning player will be helped out with basic equipment.  I invite players from each shard to post their shard and confirm wha…
  • Seth said: Petra_Fyde said: I too have posted a video, and I think it can be agreed, while I know a lot of facts, as a player I'm no better than 'average', if that. My vids are not so much 'look how great I am' as 'if I can do it, anyo…
  • I too have posted a video, and I think it can be agreed, while I know a lot of facts, as a player I'm no better than 'average', if that. My vids are not so much 'look how great I am' as 'if I can do it, anyone can'. This is how I succeed, see if you…
  • Mine says 'captured in the forests near Nujel'm' which must be quite a feat. Nujel'm not exactly known for nearby forest.
  • Seth said: EC: Target By TypeUse Targeted Object Enable Repeat 10 times. Done. Has anyone tried this idea? I had already harvested my plants when I saw it, so can't try it till the next lot grow.
  • @Khyro Thank you so much! I should have guessed that if anyone had the answer to this one it would be you. @Homer  I use the default UI.
  • with a gump  which means 'last object' merely re-opens the gump.  https://uo.com/wiki/ultima-online-wiki/gameplay/crafting/plant-growing/ I hope that someone cleverer than me has devised some way, possible using the 'command' action, to achieve thi…
  • Sypanecro said: i believe there are gargoyle earrings in VvV silver trader Yes - but for gargoyles earrings take the place of the head slot. They can't wear hats or helms a regular 6 piece suit for a gargoyle is earrings, necklace, chest, …
  • I doubt if this would be possible. Here's why (in my useless opinion) Human/elf armor - gargoyle armor hat - earringsgorget - necklacegloves - kiltcloak - wing armor arms, chest, legs, belt, sash, ring, bracelet all the same Earrings - nil. Gargoyl…
  • Pawain said: Ya I fire 4 broadsides to sink them.  But, 11 is correct.  Takes me 8 for a Beacon since I also have archers hitting it. That's what I do too. It may take one cannon charge more, (4 x 3 = 12) but it's more fun that way - for m…
  • Garth_Grey can't do what I suggested above, because he's on Siege. But everyone on the other shards can. Simply collect doubloons on other characters. Everyone has at least 6 slots on their account? @Garth_Grey I have a house on Siege with around 1…
