    Is this the EM event that was scheduled then cancelled? As the town criers were the only information we (briefly) had on on that one ;)

    Saturday, March 30th – Meeting with Father Grant
    Time: 8pm BST / 9pm CET
    Location: Construction site for the Cathedral of Love, 23o43’S, 1o 7’E. (A gate will be provided from the Counselors’ Hall)
    Description: Father Grant needs help collecting the last items needed to finish the Cathedral of Love.

    Aurelius is correct, Emile has been having issues accessing Stratics so sorry about that!

    Also, All shards are now providing a full month schedule of events at the start of the month. So look out for April's in the next few days at http://europa.uoem.net. We'll post indivdually for each event a few days in advance as per usual.

    This is something nice and thanks once again for the effort and work you're doin on our beloved shard.
    The Event stated Mages so, i assume , it's Magery only ? Nothing about Necro/Myst/Weaver ? A Mage who's also Necromancer must use Magery only ?
    And we all know that mostly Pvp'ng Mages use to have also poisoning...is that ok ?

    Thanks !

    You should consider adding: No forms allowed... eg Wraith form.

    Is This event still on? Also if its magery only and no potions you might want to consider taking out poisoning as most do not use it..it takes away from the fun of "mage only" when some one with poisoning vs some one without is a huge advantage. If both duelers have poisoning it just comes down to who lands the poison first..if its some one with poisoning vs some one with out the person with poisoning cannot be poisoned (for more then 3 seconds) and also will be able to cast lethal poison..Most who see Mage duels will assume there is no poisoning allowed.. Just my thoughts

    Yes it's still on.

    Naughty Traveler! It isn't a complete list. :p We're still trying to figure out how to run these so bare with. I'll consult with Emile regarding the poisoning.

    No Poisoning as well as a cap on Hit Point Regen should both make this event more fun.

    Well but how it can be done, i mean the Hit Point Regen...this mean to have a "default suit" ( same stats / resists ) for every Mage who join the Event...Also, if we're talking about HPR advantage we can't not consider more advandages who came from modded spellbooks, jewellry etc etc. So if we're talking about a balanced and equal duelling session Mages must be naked with a common spellbook and fc/fcr jewellry only ( like what i wanted to sort on a thread i posted few days ago but, "unfortunately", no one answered..wonder why...).
    About poisoning this is a bit tricky to resolve ( my opinion ) cause how to prevent it ? A Mage who has poisoning can cast poison IF he's some tiles away from his opponent ?
    I think both Adris and Emile will have some headcache trying to find a solution o_O

    Seeing as i dont recognise anyone elses names in thread that actually pvp on a regular basis, il give my input :

    Poisoning creates an element of luck that massively outweighs someone's PLAYING skill.

    People with poisoning can end up killing people who are much better than they are just because they get a lucky lethal off. (You still wont kill anyone really good who knows what they are doing, but alas it does happen this way).

    In my veteran opinion(all ive done is pvp since 1998 basically), open it up to all mage classes, but allow NO POISONING.

    People have become specialists at their type of mage template and tbh, Magery is the main base for all templates of the sort. Removing peoples option to use them does not give an accurate interpretation of what UO Mage fighting is today.

    Yes 5x Mage skill fighting is an old artform rarely practiced today, especially without poisoning, but its like that for a reason. In open field you dont often meet them(especially without poison).


    Rules should be -

    No pots
    No flying/riding
    No Poisoning skill above 30.0
    None with dex above 50(this massively constitutes whether your character is proper mage or not IMO)

    Lastly, ABSOLUTELY No forms. (Mystic/necro/sw) etc.

    Let people battle it out as UO is today, just without the element of pure computer number and chance probability included.

    TIMING - EXPERIENCE - OUT RIGHT SKILL.

    You're absolutely right just how a "normal" mage who wanna join the fun can have sort of chance ? I mean, these days a crafted suit (good one ), tangle etc etc are just the basic to have to be competitive. This made sort of "restriction" to who doesn't have plenty of great gears and, for that, "i can't talk" bout SKILLS nor TIMING cos gears GIVE advantages.
    Anyway, my only wish is to watch a great event and crossfinges that it won't be ruined like last time ..

    Genuinely a really good Mage is not as hindered by gear as you would imagine. My suits are all pretty basic. Charon runs an imbued suit and he's a very good pure mags non nox.

    Practice and experience is what counts. I promise you.

    Who won in the end? I assume it was the guy who paid 40m for the privilege.

    tbh, i couldn't believe how lagged i was, my computer cannot handle mage duels with 20+ people on screen...

    i offered North a Duel somewhere quiet and he agreed, he then sodded off back to Atl despite agreeing to duel me without the mass of lag.

    Now, im not saying id 100% have beat him, but id say its pretty nubish to agree to duel then run off and not do it.

    Mind you, i suppose if we'd dueled and id won it would have undermined his "achievement" a little. ;)
