  • Circa 97-03, Lake Superior LoA - Lords of ApocalypseGM: Chosen_One and CO-GM: uNeeK We would hang around Vesper mint and we had an alliance going with several other guilds.  People who I can remember playing with: Roadkill, Hunter of GoB, MadMardig…
  • psycho said: The most important is not the ruleset of the game, but the community of people playing it. No eras of UO is a success if theres no players. We should embrace what we have, and make the best of it. 100% The focus point should …

  • Oreogl said:     If I believed we would never have the nerf parry mage conversation again I’d totally take it up.
  • Add: Earrings of the Battlemage - 12% SDI, 4% CF, +10 skill Remove: 6% block chance from parry mages. Fair trade?
  • Cookie said: sibble said: OP suggests new items get added to buff mages, I simply mentioned if you nerf parry mages then I would be OK with it - the thread strayed when you and cookie delved into reasons why parry mages shouldn't be ner…
  • Oreogl said: sibble said: Oreogl said: Anyone who has pvped is not sitting there eating a mana dump whether the mage has parry or not. That's not true at all, 1v1 I'll take a mage dump while swinging if I know the person doe…
  • Oreogl said: Anyone who has pvped is not sitting there eating a mana dump whether the mage has parry or not. That's not true at all, 1v1 I'll take a mage dump while swinging if I know the person doesn't have parry and I actually have a ch…
  • Cookie said: No-one agrees the dexxer has no chance vs a parry mage, most players think Dexxers are completely out of control. Then I will end my debate with you here because I'm obviously having a discussion with someone who is lackin…
  • Cookie said: That equals - Mages have to stand still to cast. Therefore giving you the chance to be within that 1 tile to hit. We have 1 completely equal trade-off there. The difference is a dexer has to chase the mage to get next to y…
  • @Cookie Why I haven't responded to your walls of points:  there isn't a need to. Until you can dispute the fact that a dexer has no chance versus a parry mage - what is the point in discussing points?
  • Cookie said: Except where you give me 1 point - I can give you 5 with no possible response - because, it IS that unbalanced. @Cookie it's because of the impact of that 1 point where I'm trying to save time by not bothering with the rest. …
  • Oreogl said: Miss and interrupted are the trade off mechanics. Agreed, it is a trade off mechanic. However, mages can decrease the chance that they are interrupted by:  1 - Including weapon skill  2 - Adding Anatomy  3 - Adding Wrestl…
  • Cookie said: When you think about the Mage, and the Warrior concept, how do you see it? Do warriors have unlimited stamina, hacking ability and damage output in battle? Do they vastly outperform mages? I believe, in the same way Mages us…
  • Cookie said: Mages cannot get anything like as close as warriors do in pvm damage... That's the thing about trying to balance PVP or PVM, one will always affect the other. Yes I agree with you that it's easier for a warrior to do more damag…
  • Oreogl said: 35% block minus 15% or 20% is a fixed value of either 20/15% parry.     What is 15% of 35?  What is 20% of 35? Subtract those values from 35 you end up with 28%-30% Again, I'm not asking to nerf parry mages into the gro…
  • psycho said: You can add all the magical propeties in the world to an item, but it would still be limited by hard caps, thus introducing new and fancy items wouldnt hurt pvp nor the templates people chose to play. There is no cap on +sk…
  • Oreogl said: It’s a capped 67.5% blocking which requires wrestling and/or weapon skill - mage weapon. Similarly it’s like asking to nerf dex templates because you chose not to use parry. The parry nerf has been a request, of which I assu…
  • Oreogl said: sibble said: The actual problem is with parry mages being too strong. Until parry mages are nerfed, any addition to mage artifacts will also carry over to parry mages. Meaning, you want to make pure mages stronger...  so …
  • The actual problem is with parry mages being too strong. Until parry mages are balanced, any buffs to mages in general will carry over to buffing parry mages. Meaning, you want to make pure mages stronger...  so you buff pure mages by adding sick ar…
  • I'm going to re-suggest a battlegrounds-type of shard:- Dedicated PVP shard- Cannot create characters on battlegrounds shard, only transfer existing from other shards - Rewards-based system - Able to freely transfer characters to/from via a token pu…
  • just add parry to your build
  • To be frank the entire EJ system seemed unnecessarily complicated to me. Compare EJ to 30-day trials: - EJ are permanent until banned, thus working up characters to act as bots seems more lucrative vs. a 30-day trial that you KNOW will be locked aft…
  • Lord_Frodo said: How many VPNs can you run on one computer while trying to mulitybox, wouldn't that be like trying to control 10 different CPUs at the same time.  That would be one hell of a computer system. Without going into great detail t…
  • I like that they did something to notify/alert when multiple EJ accounts are using the same IP, but again this is very easily avoidable using VPNs. So the next step in my mind would be:- Develop something that polls your EJ users- Check their X/Y lo…
  • Gotcha! I recently had to move my domains from Google Domains (they sold to SquareSpace) to Cloudflare. $9.15/yr for .com
  • It looks like there will be rewards and upon the Shattering and you can transfer your character to another shard. I'm assuming the rewards can follow to another shard (like Atlantic) If so, and the rewards are lucrative, this could be a popular syst…
  • @JCtheBuilder thank you for what you do I moved away from GoDaddy like 20 years ago because of their pricing. Just throwing it out there, if you sign up for DigitalOcean, spin up a $5/mo Ubuntu droplet and give me access I can setup a secure web s…
  • It looks like there might be an error in the Vanilla Forums configuration. I tried logging in with Chrome, navigating to a thread and getting logged out.  Then I inspected the cookies to find something interesting... Several variables were marked fo…
  • Edge and Chrome both use the same webkit... which is why I'm on Firefox to post this. I too am having issues with both Edge and Chrome with the UO Forums. After I signed in, if I navigate to any part of the forums (change threads, browse categories,…
  • There's a fine line between exploit and clever usage of game mechanics. When I hear "expoit" I think of it as someone taking advantage of a software flaw.  When someone is caught "exploiting" I would expect some type of consequences should be done …
