    Alright, no wonder moonstone jewellery is so damn hard to come by....

    I mean, 1 in 25,000 does is quite rare........

    Do they at least drop right in backpack or one actually has to loot 25,000 corpses.....

    Yep! If you want the jewelry, you are going to have to loot!

    Semi-related topic. Did anyone ever find out if the jewelry was in the gypsy chests too?

    I think its awesome they answered my question on the UO site =)

    If anyone in the know is paying attention...is it all jewelry pieces?

    Necklace
    Bracelet
    Ring

    or is there more possibilities?

    I've murdered many a gypsy and not seen a thing thus far but still trying!

    Amen! Cured my speculation about whether or not they were real :p

    Think it's awesome though, finally a new rare that's actually rare :D

    I've heard of a ring, a bracelet, and earrings. But only one of each thus far.

    To bad they didn't have the foresight on arty drops. If they knew so many arty be around today and had a lower drop rate or mixed in the curse factor more. Maybe half the worthless arty would still be desired. There would still be active groups in Doom on weekly basis. Something like 10-100 tangles instead of 100s.

    No kidding.........

    I wonder how many chances has a blaze CU to spawn as compared to 1 in 25,000

    Well, there's a difference though....

    Items that are needed to fight, and to "win" fights should NOT be too difficult to get because if they were, it would make fights among players uneven.

    It OK with me that non-fighting related items like moonstone jewellery might be rare, but items which players need to be competitive in PvP should not be, IMHO.

    sorry, pvp gear should not be rare. that's why so many people quit during AoS, finally now it is easy-ish to make a suit and yet there's still people like you who want to go back to that horrible time in UO.

    Brilliant. And they wonder why people are inclined to use scripts.

    So is every other decorative rare in the game what's your point? And if you have a sound that has any sort of theme you probably have a few too. I'd rather have Moonstones back than this jewelry though.

    Ohh I'm with the times and Imbuing makes all the hard stuff fuzzy. And those rings and braclets are imbuable from what I read. And about the good old days, never see a swordsman lumber jacker strike fear ever again.

    They are called Artifacts not "The Blue Light Specials." As an RPer with dice and just as many years of it as the UO world. Those that GM and had a mage shop and the ability to buy a Vorp Sword and every other item on the magic list. Players run out of epic fights or the need to drag in friends to help.

    Sad part is the end game is not only getting the latest greatest to sell for bags of gold till it is out played. On to the next item and soloing creatures that should never be soloed or gotten to without a group. I have no problem with every Tom,**** and Harry having an uber arty as long as 50% those may have been cursed. All the crying for a classic there should be more uber items that can't be insured. Then compounded by the easy farmed faction gear.
