  • What time did the server go down? It's back up now. Also - roughly how many people (accounts) were there? I had a feeling ATL might break the game with the number of people hitting void pool; impossible to test that on TC1 though given how little p…
  • I'm not familiar with EC but isn't this limit to essentially prevent unlimited "looping" of a macro which could be used for unattended macroing? The limit ensures someone needs to be there after 10 to hit the button again?
  • Welcome back! Post back here with any questions you might have. The wiki here is helpful along with UOGuide (all round info) / UO Stratics (other popular forums) / UO-Cah (newer events userguides)

  • username said: Tried out the void pool last night on Baja. The Pirates spawned and just sat there. They would only move when agro'd on a player and once again stop when de-agro'd. Now I haven't done the void pool in a while but last time I sw…

  • That's a great question... I'm done testing on TC1 since it seems like at this point the publish is what it is regardless of what I test but I will definitely see if this is the case when it goes live.
  • Pawain said: UO has so few players when compared to all online games.  Why do we have so many cheaters at every opportunity? I don't know if I'd consider hanging out in Cove getting "free" drops "cheating". They were taking advantage of the…
  • popps said: The Glorious Potion argument that you bring up is very on spot, I think. It cost real money, and it lasts for 1 hour, that's it. Collection Methods for Pirate Hats which have dead times, be them sailing to find a Beacon, Dread P…
  • Radst said: The attitude is obvious. What a PRO. It's unfortunate that the Dev team is selective on their feedback; some of which is a direct question which is about testing the new publish on TC1. I thought this would be community mana…
  • popps said: Lord_Nythrax said: Everything but the Void Pool sounds like a waste of time as far as drop rates go. The Void Pool has nothing of all this, just wait for the waves and kill, kill and kill some more and get Pirate Hats. …
  • Jepeth said: Vmax said: I wondered why all of a sudden Origin looked like Atlantic this morning. What's the Pirate hat event? I don't live in these forums or play UO every day, how would a normal, semi-returned player even find out abo…
  • I think you are going to be disappointed. On Origin there is no deco and no lore pages. Also disappointing is the Orc helm was left untouched AND costs 100 points (the most points out of all other items). Sorry Dev team, I think you completely wiffe…
  • Quick update - I was able to find the jewelry box I had (only had 1) using EC. When I removed it and secured it my lockdowns jumped up by 250-300 items. I also removed a couple of BOD books (thought it might be them blowing out my lockdowns but it w…
  • Pawain said: @ Kyronix. The Lore book, pages and pirate theme deco items will be added when this goes live? What pirate theme deco?
  • I was able to replace my house with a new pre-built keep (went with the Lestat build) after tracking down a few rogue snow tiles that were hidden under a few tiles (wouldn't let me convert until I picked them up). One thing that I can't figure out i…
  • Grimbeard said: Why would an item the player base repeatedly said wasn't good enough be 100 drops what's the point of feedback if it's completely ignored  Looks like a patch was put in today (wonder what what in it??) and Pub 117 is going…
  • I'm not sure if the necklace was ever meant to be imbued given it's not exceptional (like skull swords and staves). I do agree that the octopus necklace seem like they were meant to be something more but the development was probably cut short. I'd…
  • Has anyone done any testing of Corgul / Charybdis?
  • @Kyronix - Many people have said they would like an additional stat (or replace HPR 4 with additional stats) to the Fortune Visage. I hope you all will consider that before the item goes live. One other thing I wanted to call out is that this item…
  • I have started picking up vet rewards to prepare for the conversion to a customized keep. The davies locker I have currently has 470 maps/sos. When I axed it and tried to put it in my pack it said I couldn't hold that many items so I had to change c…
  • One more question here. My keep is pretty full (I might have like 300 free lock downs); when I convert it to a new style keep will all 4500ish items/house add ons etc all go into a single moving crate or will there be like 45 moving crates?
  • ForeverFun said: Has anybody tried to convert this for gargoyle use? I tried to alter it earlier, but was given the message that it cannot be altered. I just looked it up and HPR 4 is 200 points of intensity. By comparison, +5 Str / +5 Int …
  • @Kyronix - Took me a while to get the hats I needed to get the orc helm (thanks for boosting drop rate - that seemed to help). I tried to alter the orc helm for a gargoyle and received the message that I cannot alter the item. I assumed this would b…
  • Kaz said: Personally i like the home of the hearth fireplace.  Put a nice bearskin rug (or one of the tartan carpet sets from last years tokens), some chairs and you have a really nice sitting area.  Bonus points if you get your favourite tro…
  • Kyronix said: Luck provided by equipment & other items will not have any effect on the drop rate for Plunderin' Pirate Hats. The Potion of Glorious Fortune will increase the drop rate of Plunderin' Pirate Hats in all collection methods. P…
  • Arnold7 said: Sorry, negative comments is mostly what I see anymore. You must be talking about that "other" forum that is an echo chamber of negativity... only rainbows and sunshine on these boards!!
  • Appreciate the patch notes but I agree with you @Skett - seems like there are several outstanding questions. Several things have not been answered about intended functionality which are going to either mean something is working or is broken. Maybe K…
  • Hopefully we can get some answers soon on pending questions as we try to understand expect results for testing. Some outstanding questions: Can we get clickies for the following (to help with testing content that needs tested): Ancient SoS / White …
