Ah, my old school Ranger Armor suit.

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Prince Caspian, Oct 12, 2011.

  1. From before 2000, baybee! "Studded Tunic, Ranger Armor"

    Of course a Walgreen's vinyl Batman children's halloween costume offers better protection against anything more forceful than a light breeze, but.... Ranger Armor!

    Still got my set as well. I even have some OLD 3d client screenshots while they were still tweaking the paperdoll look of my fisherman/archer wearing the set while fishing and fighting serpents back when it DID offer at least some protection.

    Edit: Also still have my two pieces of crafted Coal Plate armor (arms and legs to be exact).
     
  3. was hoping these were on the clean up list, but since they came from a clean up, i guess it makes sense they're not.

    Nope, they didn't come from a clean up... that was Phoenix Armor. Ranger armor came from two systems... the Newbie tickets and one of the Xmas ticket exchanges... each ticket had a random number, you then had to find someone with a matching number to claim the ticket's prizes... needless to say this led to DAYS worth of spamming at the banks.
     
  5. But now the whole set gives you like 30/40/23/44/25 or something. You're better off wearing Thundercats Underoos into battle.
     
  6. ah yes, now i remember. they shortly removed them from the tickets and sosaria's free hair restyle deed's supply skyrocketed.

    None of the pre-AOS magic items translated well into AOS (well except for a brief time when Str/Dex/Int/Bless items gave you +10 to the mentioned stat(s) without using up charges and pre-AOS shields). Supremely Accurate, Indestructible of Vanquishing weapon? Nope, now it's mid-grade in all qualities.
     
  8. Ah, yes. I still remember the days where you could tell in half a second if the item was any good.

    Hells ya!

    Twas a time in Ultima Online where FINDING ITEMS AS LOOT could actually uncover a once-in-a-lifetime windfall. Back when upper end items were actually hard to come by!

    when imbuing came out i seen a set with low regs on it. not sure if it can still be imbued or not. I have 19 full sets and about 20 or more extra pieces. would have been nice if they gave like 10k pints each for clean up (i would have kept at least 10 full suits tho im sure ha)

    Ummm...

    (Although the poster DID use it incorrectly as nothing had two durability mods)

    We had 2 sets, then one day I found 2 more on a vendor for 10k or 25k each for the entire set. I just bought it and shook my head. Now, if it would have been reindeer poop, that would have been worth 200m.
     
  13. I remember reading the post of a player who claimed he quit because the game system's economy was so absurd that "horse crap is worth millions of gold."

    I thought he was just being colorful, but a few months later I found out that horse droppings truly are a sought-after rare in the game, worth millions.

    Wasn't it Massively?

    Seems like so long ago... I remember people wouldn't even ID weapons and sell them to the smith or provisioner and you could ID them right off the shop inventory. I got some nice weapons that way....

    Sorry had to quote you and respond since I have just recently discovered where your forum name comes from.

    I think I have a set or two of Ranger Armour floating around

    Not sure I get the point of this thread. Just excited about your old set of armor, or?
     
  20. You should know by now that most of my threads have no point. :p

    just curious about the context...like, you threw it on a mannequin, or an argument over how it was more exciting to collect deeds and claim pieces versus the current clean-up...haha ;P. :arr:

    not saying I don't love the suit :). I spent countless hours collecting daemon bone armor as well, and that isn't much better, resists wise, post-AOS ;P.

    Only about half way through book 1 but really enjoying it so far. Think I'll be naming my next char after one of the characters

    Sorry to continue being off topic but I have just been offered the first 12 by a colleague at work who no longer wants them. Wahoo I only had 1 and 2 so that will be a nice bonus - though my poor bookcase is already full and has ever increasing piles of books in front of others and on the floor next to it.

    Ranger armour is pretty cool though a shame that it's resists are rubbish.
