Over the past decade Ultima Online has become too easy. Hunting mobs is no challenge with armor parts that is way too powerfull and filled with magic of epic propotions. Mobs actually hide when they see me and others. Everyone jumps around in their easymode with vast resources and gold and have barely a need to trade with others. Ultima Online has simply put, become too easy.

Can the devs please address the concern the players have regarding this issue?



Together we make the grame greater!
Thank you

    Try hunting in Fel and call out your location in  Gen Chat. That will sometimes add a level of difficulty :)

    Think it’s hard enough for most of us.

    @psycho you are more than welcome to go to SP and play naked, I am sure SP will help you to make it harder.
  • Siege is the most boring shard, 95% of the player base has stealth and they are so afraid of losing their gear.

    I wouldn't say boring but, there aren't enough people playing anymore to make it the shard it was meant to be.

    You can try to train Forensic Evaluation and Tastic Identification skill to 100
    of course. use manual execute.

  • You could play at Mugen / Siege to find difficulty. 
  • Psycho, how are you getting on with Slasher. Solo’d yet ?
  • I feel like the OP means more mechanics, meaning you'll need actual strategy or to avoid certain telegraphed attacks that are punishing if they are not avoided.   -If that's the case, I agree 100%  

    pvm is pretty stale when you think about it, attack, sit there and wait. most pvm content is like that.



     

    Remove or change casting focus & poison immunity it reduces the need for "Player Skill" it's garbage. rant2 Bring timing back and eliminate chance in pvp!

    The game is 30 years old.... I think we're past the point of no return in regards to fundamental game mechanic adjustments....

    Have you tried Shadowguard with a naked character?

    I overheard at the tavern the other day there is an untold, secret quest… after 1000 tries you are guaranteed a super Cameo with 6 slayers on one talisman. 
    If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    Isn’t it supposed to have +90 in all resists too?

  • So make the game harder for yourself. There can still be plenty of challenge you choose to make it challenging. Do not use the best in class artifacts, skip making a sampire. Challenge yourself to use only GM made armor. There are a lot of ways to make the game more of a challenge.
