Any Thief Idocers?

Discussion in 'UO Crime' started by DuttyD, Jan 6, 2009.

    So I was at this large tower idoc on Atlantic and had so much fun it reminded me of early UO days.

    Atleast 20 people fighting each other with me stealthing around looting/dragging boxes to hide behind houses.

    The mayhem went on for 2-3 hours and I only died once...

    In the end, I can't imagine anyone getting more loot then me.

    The rewards-
    Large Tower plot - sold for 20mil
    600 barb runic BODs.
    2 full ranger suits
    3 Ethys
    and 20 or so vanquishing/practice weps.
    Along with other good jewelry and what not.

    My heart was pounding the whole time and had a blast, so Im just wondering if there are any other thief idocers out there. And if not, you should consider taking up the profession.
    Any other thieves on Atlantic I will be glad to share felluca idocs with...

    I'm currently in the process of having my IDOCer double as a thief. I've been working his skills here and there and they are coming along.

    As far as recent IDOC loot I've been rather lucky as of late.

    I've managed
    1 Ornament of the Magician
    1 Leggings of Bane
    15 various runic kits
    1 copper cloak
    1 copper robe
    Lots of PvP Armor for example legs with MR 2 HP INC 2 10/5/21/12/10 resists
    Rune Beetle Carapace
    Couple of Boomsticks
    Several Hertidge Token
    Several ML Hair Dyes
    1 Ornate Crown of the Harrower
    Tons of PvP weapons For Example War Axe HML 35 Mage Weap -22 Hit Lightning 46 HIC 12 SSI 15 DI 36 (could be better but still nice)
    PvP Shields like this one SC no minus reflect Physical 4 HCI 15 DCI 6 4/3/3/4 resists.
    Some of the Nicer Minors like Shield on Invul.
    Couple sets of Ranger Armor
    5 Tragic Remains
    Couple Evil Mage Robes
    Enough ML Ingredients to make a pack horse necessary.

    And Rico puts in some really great input to this topic, I bet everyone feels much wiser after that comment. Thanks Rico

    Seriously though, I never seem to stumble upon IDOCs, is there some sort of personal skill or foresight that im lacking or do you guys use programs or do you just check every last house when u pass by it?

    or do you stumble upon it by pure luck or accident?

    lol, you dont need to cheat to find idocs, just run around clicking on house signs does it, when you find one thats decaying mark a rune with the stage and date then just periodically check it/update the rune, it can be time consuming (although not too bad) but you usually find one and if your lucky the reward will offset the time spent

    Yea, idocing isn't as bad or boring as it seems, especially in fel.

    It can be very rewarding by just taking an hour out of your week and find a runebook full of decaying houses.
    Thats just a part time idocer... if you spends cpl hours everyday you will have a few runebooks full of decays....
    It is always nice to check them before and after server goes down so you have an idea which ones will fall first.

    Then when im camping one waiting for it to fall I half screen Firefox and watch a movie, or troll the forums. Right now im camping a 17x17 loaded in tram.

    I'd be into this too. Look up Poo. You'll find aaron and myself, just look for the guy kicking people in the nuts. I am not typically on during the workday, but lets talk.
    I
    heard about one Cow and HOT competed over when COW was still with Slap. I wish I heard about it sooner.

    Reds running around with packs of random crap... Whats not to like?

    I actually take time out to look for IDOC's usually an hour or so a week I can cover most areas. On top of that something that few folks do that others don't, is when I'm camping a house I turn the time text stays on screen down all the way. By doing that when the house falls I'm not lagged from it tossing up the [no longer locked down] message on every item. I can get straight too it.
