    Do you really expect them to give you a straight answer to your question, when players have been asking about Ophidian Journals, rations and snake skins, for what, 2 years now, and have yet to recieve anything in the way of an answer, other than some vauge reference to the fact "they will be usefull in the future"?

    They best hurrry up or there will not be anyone playing to actually turn the event items in.

    I agree I don't expect this from a paid service period. If there is no turn in next week I will be quiting UO and going back to playing EverQuest. No way i'm waiting two years. I think its stupid to drag events out like this to begin with no other mmorpgs do it and they are all much better then UO.. I say again the only reason I play UO is cuase its 2d. But i'm already begining to loose interest nothing new its all the same old crap everyday. No new quests just the same old bogus get me this bring it back get a chest of goodies junk. Funny thing is on my shard three people quit today becuase they said UO has got boring, they started dropping mil gold checks crimmys 120 scrolls EVERYHTING they owned at luna bank and said goodbye forever UO sucks. I think I may join them very shortly..

    Don't bother waiting till next week, you might as well quit now. The trade in
    has already been stated that it will be in Pub52, and that won't happen for at
    least a month or two, at best.
     
  9. This way they can try to talk folks into buying the house/bank box expander.

    Very true [​IMG]

    I just thought that World of Warcraft pretty much took over, and that Wii (let's assume Nintendo will ever have online presence), Playstation, and XBOX took up the rest.

    If you told me SWG is still around, I'd probably be in shock as well. If UO ever goes down, I have desire to try TR. I've played EQ and SWG, and thought the PvP in both sucked. Curious about PvP in TR.

    UO is a drug... you always keep comming back. Sure you take a break every now and then, but think "hmm i wonder if anything is new?" and before you know it, your in running around.

    UO allbeit very old, has the best gameplay experience/uniqueness IMO. Cmon, you cant even drop items on the ground, or have a house in most other MMOs...

    You should lay off that straw man, he's looking a little ragged.

    I say this as a current player of both WoW, GW, LOTRO and UO, and past player of pretty much everything else. (To the poster above: TR is garbage, save your money; SWG and EQ are still around, with about as many - or as few - subs as UO.) There's only one game on the market right now whose devs can afford to be lazy/cheap/slow with updates, and that's the one winning: WoW (and, Blizzard is frankly all three). UO can survive, and deserves to survive, but not with the slow trickle of dull and tedious events that drag on for months and show no signs of improvement or resolution, aimed at a handful of the uberest players with a handful of the uberest gear and templates - and a handful is all I see at the events, even more sadly. I'll be surprised if we ever get a turn-in, let alone one next week. I shouldn't have been shocked on returning that UO is running an identical event to the one that was chugging up the servers when I last quit - only this one gives even fewer incentives to show up, and is even harder for casuals to participate in.

    Epic fail. You're breaking my heart UO.

    Man, go outside or something.

    UO is what you make of it, if you're bored, like your friends, quit.

    If you feel you must sit behind a computer to amuse yourself, find another "game"

    If all I had was UO or playing games, .....well, I'd find something more to do....different story if you're house bound.

    you know what I mean.

    I am not asking for the trade in to happen today or even next week. Just asking for the details of what is planned to be the rewards. I just want to know if it will be worth holding onto the crap ive already collected. I have three accounts with teh storage uprgrade, with a keep, and 2 houses filled.

    I think that they should add a Goodwill collection, similar to Mueseum and Library collection. Anything that can be sold back to a vendor like jewels, armor, gems, weps, should be something you can turn in towards rewards. Or bring back Clean Up Sosaria.

    Hail: The point the OP is making is that there is a limited number of total items your account can hold. Charaters packs, bank box, and house. Most of your total items is taken up with jewlery/armor/weapons/cloths. Then there are all you Vet reward items, token items of all kinds, and any rares/semi rares you have. Now, add to that, plants, and other Deco items and you are pushing the limit of your total storage space.

    Now, over the years there have been events, and such. You get more of the above items from these events, and start getting other items that, "Seem to be Deco Only", or even items you have no idea what they are for?

    So, with limited space, and still getting items, of all kinds, a decision has to be made. What do i keep, and what do i throw away? Every Game in the world helps you out with this exact situatiion. "Remember to keep your wooded sheild, and club, as the cave Excor has a barrier that will not let anything made of metal through it", and the like.

    Saying there will be a turn in, but not saying what will be accepted as a turn in, is WRONG. As i have seen in the event, there is all kinds of armor, weapons, jewlery, and even gold left on the dead creatures. I do not see players leaving any of the, "May seem to be Deco only" items on the creatures, do you?

    No Promise was made saying what will be turned in. So, what if only the threads are for turn in? And your 100+ Plain Swords an Sheilds are not? How would you feel then? What if the turn in was at 7 to 1, and you had 6? How do you know?

    No one asked for a turn in, EA said there would be one. They made it part of the even, not us. The least they can do, is provide more information, on what they put in the game.

    Thank you for clearing that up. At least with books of truth event, you knew what you were getting the books for, as well as the Tokuno Treasures.

    I had collected well over 450 Books of Truth during that event. I gave at least 250 away to others to help them get the gorgets. I still have 50 or so books in my houses.

    During the original Tokuno Treasures, I was averaging 20-30 minor drops a day. I could not even begin to tell you how many I got during the event, I ended up giving alot away. I still have a complete set of majors/minors that I am holding onto for my collection.

    Now, I have heard so many people say what they would like for the trades. Personally, I would like to see them just turn on the blackrock traders that they had in haven, and accept the shields/swords, and threads for a random artie or bod reward. Cloaks should be turned into event cloaks with some resists or other properties like HPR or MR, and DYEABLE.

    Honestly, the one thing I was REALLY looking forward to from this quest is the ability to cure my Legendary mage of being permanently blackrock infected. I usually hunt alone with this char. She has done all of the Champ Spawns, even the harrower before becoming infected and is Champion of Evil. Since becoming infected, I hardly play her any more because it plain sux to infect an ancient wyrm when you are by yourself in Destard.
     
  22. They dont have to tell you jack, your lucky they told you there even was an event, thats more than you get for alot of other games out there, if they even run REAL events, rather than a new quest. Granted i havnt enjoyed the new format of the events since ML but at least they are freakin there!

    EA panders too much to the playerbase and its making the game dull and boring, the only interesting thing in uo at the moment is new content and now your demanding to know what that is before its even implemented?! crap why not just skip the end and find out how it all ends?.. but then i guess you dont care about how it ends just what pixel crack you can get.

    if your playing uo for the items, go play wow its more your level of depth.

    I agree that more content should be added at a lower ability level than just the best of the best, but since id imagine 80%+ of the playerbase is actually included in the best of the best, itd be kinda stupid to spend alot of resources on the other 20% that may or may not be able todo that specific level,

    I mean you put in a new lizardman style content with appropriate rewards and your gonna get people crying that its too easy and the items are worthless, youll still get everyone farming them but of that 20% (a rough guess) only a fraction is going to be fighitng lizardman level monsters and using that level of item.

    "end game" content is good for everyone, and it gives the people not at that level something to aim towards.

    As someone else stated, UO is what you make of it, whatever level/template/playstyle you have theres something you can do in uo and to a degree something you can do regarding the event.

    Your not all artied up and kitted out with 120s? well get a few friends your level and just guard the gate of wisps, sure youll die but you dont need to insure and nothing loots there, so its free. (yeah you wont get the cloak or scythe but you cant just jump end game for showing up at one event can you)



    All in all uo used to be about the process and the community not just end game items. I'll repeat myself, if your playing for the items, play another game, we dont want your kind here.

    hehe, i am sorry to inform you, "Everyone in this event is playing for the items". The Items are the only thing that gets looted off the dead creatures. The paragon chest are left on the ground. The 7-15 different normal drop items are left on the corps. Hell, a lot of time, the gold is left because it weighs to much.

    Why is everyone running up as soon as they see a shadow lords show up? To use their blackrock to get the cloak off him when he dies. Here is the proof. A lot of players went there last week. Over the weekend the SL stop spawning, and the number of players going there was cut in half. Now, they are back, and the number of players going there is up again. WHY? Because of a single ITEM,

    So, sorry, but most are playing for the items, and not the thrill of killing SL's. I di not make the event like this, EA did. Go get Mad at them........ [​IMG]

    Well, I don't play WoW. Sorry, UO is the only game I enjoy. I quit for three years because I was frustrated with it becoming more Item Based than skill based. I have a medical condition that keeps me from playing most games. The Graphics make me nauseous and sick to my stomach after just a couple of minutes.

    Yes, I have all the 120's. I have spent hundreds of millions in gold buying them, or doing spawns to get them. I have bought and sold Keeps, and have all the Material possessions in game. I also have all the skills, and LOTS of friends.

    I hunt, I do peerless, and in almost 2 years of peerless I have gotten 2 CC's. I don't do it for the loot. I do it for the fun and challenge. I roleplay as a part of the RP community on Atlantic. I pvp, Pvm. I craft, I do it all.

    I also go to Haven and drop off useful items for new players. Lot's of stuff. I offer stuff to friends and guildmates, because it's fairly easy to get stuff. I have more than I can use.

    Like I said, it's not about the items. But, it would be nice to know if I should keep this stuff or give away to new players in haven. Process? I have 120 Mage type, 120 Provo Type, 120 Tamers, 120 Bush types, 120 Stealing type chars. And I would say that if you can take to 120, I most likely have that skill or have it on a stone. I don't just hunt 24/7. I roleplay as well. I have a Seeker of Truth Char, a Lycan Char, a spy char that I rp with. Even defending the city of Glow is based on RP within the community. I don't hunt there for the ITEMS, but to help allies save the city and to prevent the rift from spreading.

    What is there to do in SWG, other than, like dancing and playing instruments? :p. They must be near episode 9, by now, lol. Guess a lot of space travel, and battles there, hm

    I've always thought it would be cool to have stage coaches in UO, to mirror the cool speeders in SWG.

    The best solution is to give away your surplus items to those who want them and simply store more sensible quantities for turn-ins. If each item is going to turn in for one new one, why would you want hundreds of them anyways? :p

    I have one chest filled with the swords. One with the shields. Third chest has 50 threads and 15 cloaks in it.

    It got to the point people have been giving me blackrock, and I have been getting cloaks for them.

  37. At this point, with maybe about a week left, it would be nice to at least get some hints, or at best a list of rewards with the turn in ratio. They said the even would last 3 weeks~, and we're just about to that point now.

    Ah yes, Clean Up Britannia!

    I'll never forget that little event.

    Mostly because some cheatin dickweed got into my house via exploit and turned in every item I had in the house.

    Not only did I not get my Singing Crystal Ball, but I lost virtually all my items to boot.

    Aren't MMORPGs grand?
