Clubs, Crooks and Blackstaffs

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Old Man of UO, Apr 27, 2009.

  1. All of these are repairable by a carpenter, and so obviously wood craft items. Here's the problem:
    1) Clubs were made enhanceable some time back, 2007/2008 I think. However, QA forgot to test the left facing clubs and those can't be enhanced, just the right facing ones. Many bug reports were sent in, and still not fixed to this day.

    2) Crooks and Blackstaffs can't be enhanced, period. Why not? It's not as if doing so would make them overpowering. Swords has a better whirlwind weapon than the blackstaff, so why can we enhance them?

    3) And to carry that even further, why can't we craft them? With runics. It will never match the power of a valorite runic made twinkling scimitar, so what am I missing? My carpenter needs the work!

    Blackstaffs cant be made therefore cant be enhanced, certain crooks can be enhanced(i think its the same problem as with clubs) but i did think you could make runic crooks although i havent tested this.

    Still cant understand why clubs havent been fixed.
  3. I haven't tried making crooks with runics, but I know you can not enhance them. I tried enhancing on with Yew yesterday. I'll have to log in later today to see if crook appear on the crafting menu.

    This is not a new topic, EA said they were looking into crafting blackstaffs some years ago. I see no reason not to be able to craft and enhance them.

    The question for clubs should be why weren't they QA'd in both directions.

    There are at least three types of crooks:

    South-facing, east-facing, and crafted. The crafted ones are easily distinguished by the narrow hook end. The spawning ones have more of an open hook, like a '?'. Hope this helps.

    I would like to see all the 'orphaned' weapons brought into line with the rest in terms of crafting, repairing, enhancing and imbuing. Crooks, black staves, pitchforks and so on.. as stated some of these aren't as desirable as their mainstream counterparts, but it would be nice if the whole catalogue of weapons each had the options that only most of them do now. I'd also like to see the same done for the oddball armours such as orc helms & masks, tribal masks, bear & deer masks, etc.

    "Fixing" existing material in the game should be as important as adding new content.
  5. Ahh... thank you. I didn't know the difference.

    As far as blackstaff not being as desirable and other weapons, as their mainstream counterparts, this is only true because we can't craft it and craft it with runics. It has decent damage and speed, but also the whirlwind special.

    I like the black staffs I have a couple of good ones but was very discoraged when I was unable to enhance!

    I'm in the same situation with pitchforks. I've hoarded a crate of them in the hopes of imbuing but they're not on the imbue-ables list either :wall:

    If not more!
  9. The thing is, Spada is viewing Uhall right at this moment, and probably passed right by this thread. It's very unlikely to even get a comment from EA... no mater how much I try to goad them into it.

    *that's a hint, Spada* :D

    I agree 100% Please dev's let us be able to enhance crooks, black staffs, pitch forks, & all clubs. And lets not forget about those Nunchucks. True, you can enhange them. However, it's extremely lame that you can enhance them with a Tinkerer. Thus enhancing them with the pretty much pointless metal properties.
