1.8 million in the bank ...

    ... and I had to go cash a check to buy traps. Yet in publish 68.3 it says

    Purchasing items while from vendors using funds in a player's bank will now be taken from check form if gold coins are not present in a players bank.


    There's also the small matter of how the hell cannon on the opposite side of a pirate ship to me can still bloody well hit my ship.

    And the trap fishing; I don't know who fiddled with the numbers of plain crab/lobster versus the quest ones, but they need to go and fiddle it back. Pronto. Cos it's starting to get just a teeny bit frustrating. I fish, crab, lobster or fish, until my pack is full. When half the weight I'm carrying is something I'm going to lob in the trash, because there's absolutely no use for them whatsoever, I start to get a bit irked.

    And then there's the scroll thing. Quite simply, sort it out. To put it plainly, I've paid you for something and now, because of bugs or mistakes or whatever, I can't use all of it. Not bloody good enough, I'm afraid. I'm getting more than a little annoyed now. I had a GM fisher before the booster pack. I was looking forward to getting her to legendary. I, and lots of other people, haven't even seen a 105 scroll (bar the one I was given by a sweet player), never mind a 110, 115 or 120. Whilst things shouldn't be too easy, you can go too far the other way, y'know!


    I'm hoping that someone at EA, somewhere, will look at this and actually take it on board. I realise it's probably a vain hope, but what the hell, I've tried.

    I learned long ago to never trust everything you read. Programmers adage: Documentation can lie, code never lies.

    Er, the shot went 'round the world? <shrug> How can monsters target and cast on you around corners (no actual LOS)? How can a pirate cannon fire a shot that essentially girdles the world to smack your ship? The answer: because they can.

    Good luck getting answers ... you pose valid questions and concerns.

    Unfortunately, not having the ability to read code, I'm somewhat reliant on Devs etc to translate. Apparently, something is getting lost along the way.

    Zidjin, I'll sort you out later :p

    On the UOHerald there's a newer post, one day after Pub 68.3, stating this:

    I only remember this on/off change because I found it cool to buy from vendors even when only checks where in the bank... but, oh well ;)

    Yes, sometimes it is hard that even a NPC takes money from you
    Or he hs just a 'No Checks' sign at his booth

    Aye the situation regarding scrolls is ridiculous. I bought the expansion, created another character to be a Fisherman, stupidly allowed the char to start off with no Fishing skill and have gone from there.

    When I was in the 90s skill range a friend gave me a 105 scroll, since then I have moved on to 104.7 and in that time I have actually received a 105 scroll myself. I returned this to my friend and since that was the only one I have obtained the chances of my moving on to 110 is apparently NIL.

    I have no scrolls to bind to create a 110 and an actual 110 scroll, whilst ALLEGED to drop, seems to be as rare as hens teeth.

    Once i get the final .3 and reach 105 any incentive to keep working has gone and this will surely kill the expansion for me and probably many others.

    A huge collection of rare fish baits, handbooks, lava rods and lave pots I already have. What is left to achieve?. As far as I am concerned - NOTHING.

    To continue the continual grind of doing these quests with no real prospect of getting anywhere does not appeal to me at all.

    I cant find the post right now but IF YOU GUYS REMEMBER THE CRASHING OF SHARDS!!!! In one of the posts during their fixes they posted that they were taking that feature back out!

    LEARN TO READ:gee:
     
  10. Was that necessary? Maybe you should learn to read the rest of the thread before insulting other people, like maybe read MedeaDF's posting above that it was reverted?

    You'd almost think the booster wasn't fully tested, but then you remember that this is EA Mythic we're talking about...and you know their steadfast commitment to excellence.

    Oh, wait. I was blocking out the last 13 years.

    Nevermind...

    Greetings,

    We once again thank you for your patience and cooperation.


    With this maintenance the following change in 68.3 has been removed:
    • Purchasing items while from vendors using funds in a player's bank will now be taken from check form if gold coins are not present in a players bank.

    Scientifically incorrect.

    Humor-wise...Funny!

    Per the OP. 4 x GM Fisherman, on 4 of 5 shards, from way, way back. They keep their nets dry until this stupidity is corrected.
