  • A blue tent w 1 chest inside 2 screens east of the beach above Shame. Saved up & placed a green tent right next to it. 1st home was a small fieldstone along the coast south of what is now the Blighted Grove area (Blighted Grove didn’t exist whe…

  • shootgun said: Acid_Rain said:  ESPECIALLY when she volunteers her time w/o pay. Wow, I never know she was volunteering. If that is real then she is the patron saint of Sosaria!. Fact.
  • Dealing w all the knuckleheads posting here is painful enuff I’m sure. Drop the whole dumpster fire in her lap... thats just cruel & inhumane. ESPECIALLY when she volunteers her time w/o pay. I’d vote her a paying staff position in CS/Promotiona…
  • CovenantX said: That's what happens when those in charge let the cheating slide for so long.    I'm not sure what else the result of doing nothing could have been. Facts.
  • U may already be doing this but just incase... Set a macro for tame last target & just hold it down for taming any pet that will aggro on taming attempts. It makes taming them much easier.
  • Long ago in a land far far away, I used to PvP against cheaters & this was my song   https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=DBfTk6Unddk (My phones not letting me embed & on pc I’m getting “You dont have permission” message trying to edit . )
  • JackFlashUk said: (Slightly Changed To Fit My Experience - Acid Rain) many. many years ago on Atlantic I loved idocs, then rafman and idoc guy just destroyed them, and the nonsense changes instead of dealing with the cheating. It WAS a pl…
  • Thing is... they’re NOT playing the game. They’re running a script to gain unfair advantage over folks that ARE playing the game. Time is what players here are investing in their games. Game evolution & tolerance have absolutely nothing to do wi…
  • Yoshi said: “There is no option to choose client limitations,  What’s the point in dueling someone when one player can have 3 x frame rate and casting speed as someone else.  If broadsword are allowing all cheats now, at least give people …

  • Years ago when UO had physical server locations, I lived less then 100miles from the Atlantic server. I never moved as fast as these guys in the vid link. CrAzY.... If they’re actually in Russia playing that fast w zero lag... I’m so glad I’ve quit…
  • Yoshi said: “Let me also ask another question. the wiki states: You must first prove yourself worthy to be taught by the elves of Heartwood or Sanctuary. This is achieved by undertaking the quest Learning the Ways of the Arcanist.  And for…

  • PlayerSkillFTW said: However, nowadays, the scripts are simply too advanced and prolific, with even third party clients now running numerous scripts at once. As i saw cheating becoming more rampant in UO, i did say that eventually PvP would …
  • My favorite stealther template, one which decimated an entire pvp guild in terra keep, is the hated stealth ninja archer herder.  Basics are: 120 archery 120 tactics 100 hiding 100 herding 120 ninja 120 stealth Theres left over points for what yo…
  • Grimbeard said: the majority of them use scripts at best and more importantly illegal 3rd party clients Since discussion on unapproved programs & unofficial clients isn’t allowed on official game forums, theres not much that can be said…
  • PaladinBob said: ...as I'm one of the unfortunate persons who thinks the game could be great if there wasn't cheats out there.  Edited ur comment for inclusion of a handful of others that agree, like myself.
  • Curious why shoot for 120 magery when it can only be used for support? What spells are u guys casting that isn’t damage related thus requiring evalint which cant fit on the templates? 79.9/80 magery is required for non-fizzle inviso. I wouldn’t bot…
  • gay said: It doesn't "remove" them. Take a screenshot of somewhere in tram, and then the exact same spot in fel, you'll see that they line up. Sapling, spruce, bush... call them what you will. I haven’t logged on to play in a looong time …
  • I haven't seen fel graphics in +15yrs. Follow Yoshi’s instructions. Devs gave us this option in patch notes shortly after Tram was created. Desolation=off in uo.cfg file then look for same in char folders/files... repeat. Be sure to save the file/ov…
  • Didn’t see ur race mentioned but imo there’s very little reason for any tamer not to be a gargoyle. Unless your PvP heavy and want a mount or need to jump on ur pet to save it in combat, the 5 control slots with mounted speed given to gargoyles is t…
  • Was unable to Edit comment to include example so here it is...
  • There maybe confusion as to the type of bless deed, iirc there are 3 currently; clothing bless deeds, item bless deeds, and personal bless deeds. I took the OP as asking abt personal bless deeds. In the pic you posted an item bless deed has been us…
  • Worth noting, if you shard hop a character wearing pbd’s they become stuck on the items and unable to remove. Paging a GM can fix the problem but its the only way to get the pbd off the item. Before jumping shards always remember to remove the pbd f…
  • Thanks for your colorful commentary Kyronix, as usual. Thread lock eminent as board warriors lock horns, as usual.  Pretty sure OP topic was covered. Nothing to see here, move along.  
  • Damned if you do, damned if you don’t.....  eh Kyronix ?  Nuthin but 4 ya chief.
  • CovenantX said: Acid_Rain said: UO took a hard approach against blocking via static objects anywhere.    Too bad there's no hard approach to things that actually affect other players game-play.  There's a great deal of frustration w…
  • I’d be surprised if any of those complaining aren’t already aware but on the off chance a new player is reading the thread here it is : The rule is against blocking with static objects. Energy fields and stone walls are not static, they’re dynamic.…
  • I’m pretty sure popps is paid to write content, regardless of quality, to give the impression the website is more active. I’ve used services like his before when manipulating google’s search engine for companies trying to elevate their result stat…
  • I’d share w ya if u’d wanna contact here thru dm’s. Not keen on giving out my email to strangers. HMU if u’d like. Started playing in beta on an account 3 of us shared in college. Been around since the start.
