    Sorry if this has been posted, but I did a search and didn't find it.

    Tonight me crew was pirate hunting...we were partied. When we went to turn in the captured pirate, only I got the reward as opposed to before when everyone did. We re-partied and did it again--same result.

    Any suggestions? is this a bug or did we do something wrong?
     
  2. Bug.
    What else, in UO, would it be!!
    Introduce something interesting, ADD BUG, charge $14......priceless!

    PS....has happened many times to my "crew".
    Also, watch for the impossible to damage pirate boats....they out there too....justa waste of resources firing the cannons a million times for naught!!

    Bug - I've seen it on almost every pirate run I've done; the Party Leader doesn't get the random reward. Instead, a non-stackable, single gold coin spawns in his backpack, and the gold gets split amongst his/her crew instead.

    Another bug, how can a creature steal or loot the pirate binding rope from your corpse when you cant even remove it? I always have the quest active even when im fighting in the middle of knowhere. And am getting tired of it getting looted.

    DEVS: ITEMS should ONLY be lootable when I CAN remove them from my backpack!

    From my experience the cause is the proximity to the pole the pirate is tied to. If you are on your boat when the pirate is caught it(the bug) doesn't happen. Not sure if that helps or not. Did all member get the message when the pirate was caught?

    Leaning on this -- for example, when I solo pirates, I use a second char to get extra end-loot, and one time recently my second char got the message for binding, but my primary binding char didn't -- yet when I finished the quest at dock, my primary char got 10k and a reward, and my secondary char got nothing. The one thing I did which I am curious about is I invised after a failed attempt to bind the pirate (it evaded the first bind attempt). I've never had a problem with pirates binded on first try yet... but probably a region issue since you need to be close to quest owner at end to get reward, as well

    I got one of those single non-stackable gold coins too from the same bug as the party leader. Bring your guild to Europa, will be glad to show the magic gold coin.

    I have dozens of those single gold coins from the pirates... I get about as excited as them as I do about getting another light flame cannon-ball. I'm up to close to 400 of them and still never a heavy or any frost ones. There's certainly a few bugs in the system.

    actually I have only heavy fire cannon ball and none light....

    However, I found a way to test the ship if you can damage pirates or not:
    Go near the pirate ship an see if they start to fire with cannon against you. If they don't shoot you, you're ship is invulnerable so you are bugged and cannot damage their ship...

    I have no clue on that... folks in my guild have done both tram and fel versions and no one has anything except for light-flame cannon-balls.

    Ah ok -- a guildy of mine got a frost in fel, but only one and im not sure of any more since -- and that was a bit ago, when they first came out ... could be that theyve all be turned off ... yet, i've never see a heavy of any kind personally, ever ... beta or otherwise.

    I've tried heavy and light flame shot, I have some of both... but the damage against the ships still the same of a plain shot, the only difference is which they damage the crew with fire damage.... almost useless, the crew goes down easily even without grapeshot/flame/cold cannonballs... maybe in ship pvp could be useful...

    Thanks for the responses to date...it happened AGAIN to us last night.

    Any definitive solutions? Drydock the boat? Only get quest AFTER we party? This is getting very expensive...

    My friend suggested the flame actually makes the ship go on fire, perhaps an area fire field or something? Would be cool ... although, the damage from grapeshots etc seem to be near worthless, per fuse usage.
