    Where could I find the old info on casting speeds and stuff during the Samaria Empire time frame(2004ish)? Ive read all the old patch notes, and found where the adjustments were made to a few spells. But no real info on what they really were. When did FC get added to necro? Any archives out there i didnt see while searching? An old guild website with the info still online I missed? TY

    Might search for the old guide book for SE on half price books or something.

    I think your best bet for accurate info will be searching through the archived publish notes here. Page 24 covers the SE era I think. The minor patch notes were archived separately, if that is what you already searched through.

    P.S. it is too bad that most of the Stratics archives were lost when the forums were wiped accidentally. A lot of tables, and specifics of things such as swing speed, casting timers, etc. were posted by players after much testing, and some of the devs even made detailed posts explaining game mechanics when changes were being considered.

    Here's some UO history for you.... There once was a time when a great Hybrid warrior walked our streets on Britannia, we have since then never had a greater man walk our streets, when people seen him they ran as far away as they could cause if you looked him in the eye it was surely the last thing you seen on earth. Some say he still walks our lands and others say it is only a myth cause rumor has it that the only way you can see him today is through the eyes of the dead, meaning if you did happen to see him then you would surely die!

    I suppose we will never really know if he exist or not, that is unless you really really wanna find out and risk giving up your life. Some say if you call on him he will at some point come to you, but when he does finally call your number you had best be ready for any and everything cause he knows all the tricks of the trade and has no problem using any of them. They say this legend goes by the name Cheapsuit. Kinda strange name but I seriously doubt such a person exist myself. Rumor has it he has slaughtered 3 and 4 at a time and like any vicious animal he always attacks the weakest prey in the crowd first, so it is not advisable to walk the streets alone if you're a non combat type person.

    He is indeed a legend, he is Cheapsuit.

    I think Prostkr was wanting information on things in the game that actually took place, Cheapy. ;)

    You forgot to add in the part where the villian turns tail and runs like a baby chicken when one cast curse on him

    Thanks for the links everyone. That is real close to what I'm after but not quite the info I'm after. I can see and track all the adjustments made in the patch publish notes. If I was able to find the original casting speeds of necro when it was added in, then I could step my way up from there. Thanks again!
