  • There is an option to turn off spell text from appearing overhead (atleast in EC).  Can be a pain in the butt to do in PVP sometimes when you want to see what's being casted without necessarily the constant spawning, but helpful for EM events where …

  • Overall, I think 'Shard Bound' should be done away with entirely.  It's definitely been a factor in me keeping characters on Atlantic that I've invested alot of time and effort into building a suit and whether or not I decide to bring one of my more…
  • Been a while since an update.  Dungeon mostly static now with occasional spawn changes here and there (i.e., one day might not have rams, another day no para poison elementals).  Atlantic still has big crowd on first floor, but lots of opportunities…
  • This change of penalizing bad actors has been a positive for the community.  Addressing farming bots has been long over due.   The developer's should play their cards close to their chest on this one.  If they give specifics of how people are gett…
  • Quick battle report noting hardly any rams in Deceit tonight and the crowd was much more dispersed through out the dungeon fighting on all levels rather than just staying on the first floor.  Got 49 drops on my potion run.  Kind of goes to show you …
  • I got hit with the AFK flag once too for seemingly no reason, but I still support the efforts to address some of the botting.   This has been long overdue and the last event was particularly bad with the AFK/follower bots farming and screwing up spa…
  • Most recent battle reports... Back on the Tram side with the Fel event over for Atlantic...   last three nights did my usual hour-long potion run... got 26, 34 and 40 drops respectively.  That was mixing it up between using my plate samp or bone sa…

  • Battle report from this weekend… Building on what I posted on Friday..  this event on the Fel side was really a great challenge and good deal of fun.   Without needing to go into the hour by hour details for this report, I can confirm that eve…
  • Today's battle report...  With the Fel event officially opening on Atlantic, I got in some time both during the day and then in the evening to play... generally good action all around.    During the afternoon, there was a good balance of people fi…
  • This evening's battle report...  Played Atlantic Fel Deceit tonight with my SW/Healing Necro Warrior (it's an odd 'sampire' variant)...   popped potions, used luck statue...  played for about two hours tonight from 11:30pm until about 1:30am.   On…

  • It appears the Fel spawn is now open on Atlantic per notes I am seeing across Discord servers - so one day earlier than listed.   Never the less, I hope the developers give strong consideration to keeping open a bit longer on the most populous shard…

  • keven2002 said: Merlin said:Took my bone samp down tonight... 700 luck after statue... popped a fortune potion... ended up with 46 drops.  Overall good result with 46 drops though.  This is about what I would hope for if I'm going to spe…
  • Content shouldn't be dumbed down so a handful of less effective templates can get an equal amount of drops.   By all means, it's a shame there isn't a better opportunity for tamers in some of these ToT events.  Melee fighters and ranged fighters de…
  • Battle report for tonight... Took my bone samp down tonight... 700 luck after statue... popped a fortune potion... ended up with 46 drops.  Started around 11:30pm EST, played for an hour.  Not as many people tonight as previous nights.   Dungeon d…
  • I'm usually one of the 'glass half full' voices here that tries to find the silver lining in all decision making, but it's frustrating and disappointing that Atlantic is only getting three days.  80%+ (if not more like 90%) of the population of UO…
