    I will list them here and update when I think of new ideas. :D

    I want to be able to smash the rocks I collect while mining for a chance to get a good amount of randoms regular gems. A pickaxe must be used, and a gargoyle pickaxe has a higher chance for gargoyles to get the gems, but also a higher chance for a new Gem Elemental to spawn!

    Any other ideas?

    First, I see no reason that just a pickaxe should be used.
    Second, if you are a GM miner then you can use that new specialization
    book that will allow you to mine normal gems as an option.
    Third, a new Gem Elemental monster might be nice...

    Fix the Speedhacking problem, give us a mapping tool for all lands and update uo.com, character and guild lists.

    Speedhacking hasn't been a problem for years, unless they've recently opened up another way for people to do it.

    You should've seen the bastards speedhacking back then. Now 'that' was a problem.

    You can buy the book from the blacksmith in Ter Mur, just east of the forge.

    Then it is as simple as clicking on a shovel to change what you're mining in the context menu.

    I went to the gargoyle city (in islh) looking for the book first, but I found it on the blacksmith, of all places.

    Seems to be about a 30% drop rate on gems, which is pretty nice considering the 600 gp cost for some in the shops.

    I still want the option to smash stones too, and have a chance to get more than one at a time.

    Does anyone know if they increased the drop rate on sand? Think it is about 9%. Very annoying.

    Another change I would like to see is the ability to imbue arrows. You can imbue arrows in stacks of up to 100, the more in the stack, the lower your chances of success.

    You can not add mods that are being dealt by a quiver, so they dont stack.

    The imbue would add new mods that are new to the expansion. For example:

    Using a ruby to imbue would cause the hit effect of a conflag pot on the ground, like the goblin alchemists use.

    An emerald would give a hit poison area effect.

    A sapphire would deal cold damage like harm, based on distance from target. ( Or it could freeze the target for 2 seconds, which obviously would be disabled for pvp ).

    A diamond would shatter targets physical resist for 30 seconds, dropping the resist to no less than 30.

    etc.... every jewel would have a mod... and to make it remain balanced, there will be a cooldown timer of 20 - 30 seconds before another special arrow could be fired, so you'd have to carry your regular arrows in pack too still.
