    Compassion Sage, a new item found this weekend, is known to drop on Controllers near the Compassion Gate. (past the gypsy camp and near the Blackthorne Castle)
    When consumed it gives points in the Compassion Virtue.
    It is not an extremely rare drop so be sure you dont overpay when wanting to buy one. (I got one about every 10 controllers)

    You're having about 10x the luck I am... 105 controllers so far and 1 Sage (at about the 85 mark... keeping count via arcane gems looted).

    I've also read a 1 in 30 rate, so obviously results may vary and in either case I certainly wouldn't spend millions on a spawning item before we know just exactly what role it plays.

    And yes, anywhere where controllers spawn... Borgthorn's Castle, Exodus dungeon and the outskirts, and Mistas and environs.

    Edit: 160 and got one... taking a break.

    One every 10?... at the moment, I'm skeptical of that one.

    Agreed, seems to average about 1 for every hundred I kill or so. Spawns sporadically though. Will kill a bunch and get nothing. Then out of the next 5 or so I will get two.

    I was farming on an archer with 700 luck. I killed at least 350 and only got 4. At first I was wondering if they were even spawning.

    I do like that it allows you to gain in Compassion though. It gives dexxers and those without gate the ability to actually gain in compassion. However I really hope the other virtues never have something like this. A knight of Justice etc should be earned by work and not just tipping a bottle.

    BTW, the best way for a non-mage to gain compassion is to have access to a Crystal Portal vet reward in a house where lots of Gypsies/Brigands spawn.

    The Portal allows you to take non-bonded pets, escorts and hirelings to the destination.

    Two of my 3 houses practically have brigands spawn on my doorstep.

    totally useless...
    compassion drop every week, so you became slave of escorts when the potions are over.
    However still exist the purifier quest into the solen hive for gain compassion without escort...

    Are there any details anywhere on the event for Queen Dawn other than the lore?

    I had no idea this stuff was already available I've been waiting for some quest or event to take place in game. I don't read her mind and know that there is stuff to be had just from a bit of lore about an event.

    Dont know if all shards have a gate in Cove but on Europa I take my non-mage chars to Cove (always lots of NPCS here) and find one wants Jhelom and away you go. Compassion gain near as quick as a mage

    I wonder what's so compassionate about killing and looting hundreds of controllers :lol:
    Freeing them from the slavery to Exodus perhaps? rolleyes:
    Well - it makes as much sense as 'sacrificing' hundreds of liches to gain in sacrifice...

    I got one on the second controller I killed :thumbup1:
    Just a lucky roll I'm sure...

    As far as I know Bravehorn still works.

    Though I've not done it in a long time.

    Thanks for the info on the Crystal Portal! I never knew that! Briggands and Gypsies spawn near my home all the time and I have a Crystal Portal.

    I don't know if anyone knows this yet, haven't seen anything posted.

    Hearing that you get these potions from Controllers, I decided I'd try the place where they are abundant. Exodus Fortress, in central Ilshenar. But here's the interesting thing. I went to a moongate and gated to Ilshenar's shrine of Honor. And standing at the entrance to the little valley of the shrine, there's a Royal Scout named Cole (on GL).

    Questioning him gets some interesting responses. One is this...
    "If you show up in force, many of these controllers may gather to repell your attack."
    So forming raiding parties might be beneficial in boosting your chances at these potions.

    Not on Drachenfels. I think the Ems are free on each shard how to deal with this event.

    That was part of the EM event for the sage on GL Trebr... You really need to go to the GL Forums here, the GL EM website, and the GL RPC website - between them your questions would be answered :thumbup1:

    ...

    Went back and killed another hundred or so last night and got 4 more sages, so as usual, the RNG is a fickle thing (which is probably putting it MUCH nicer than it really is).

    You know, this isn't really a complaint, but there's an alternate method.
    When placed, that there's an event that stays in game so that a player who didn't attend the event still finds something. As opposed to searching through message boards before and after to see what's going on, and finding out you missed whatever it was or couldn't make whatever it was, or whatever...

    But I know that's not possible under UO's current status and setup. So it's not a complaint, just sayin'. (For Cal's sake.)

    RNG is your buddy. Killed controllers for about 3-4 hours yesterday and got 1. Killed controllers last night (only one there) for 30 min. and got 3. Did notice that yesterday when there were a lot of people there there were tons of controllers and last night I was there alone and only a few controllers at a time.

    I didn't notice anything out of the ordinary, but then I think I was the only person there both trips, so I was probablyt just dealing with the base spawn level anyway.

    I'm sorry but I'm of the opinion that if you really gave a darn about what was going on in-game you would seek out answers in places like Stratics and the UORPC so you would know what was going on .... and you would watch the EM website to stay informed and so you wouldn't miss what's going on...

    Tools like stratics and the EM website are there to help...

    You can't expect the game to tell you everything there is to do all the time..... that's silly.

    But quite honestly if you really wanted to know you would.

    People who complain about never knowing have the same tools as everyone else.... they just choose not to utilize them. No ones fault but their own.

    Its like the old saying that many people can't see the forest through the trees.

    Well, it wasn't a complaint. It was more like a suggestion. But reading some other posts, it seems that maybe they did just that. I'm wondering, if the part about the Controllers gathering to repell attacks is in, what about the other part about searching in the west? (I didn't mention that in the first post.)

    Normally the patching screen should announce such stuff...except for non english OS where the screen is blank :p

    But yes some more ingame notes would be nice, instead of he wizard told me in a dream to kill monsters for drugs.

    Yeah, the RNG is nuts - one night, almost 4 years ago, I got 3 rare music box gears from a total of 9 paragon Golems - then went nearly 30 months (and hundreds of para golems, betrayers, juggs, etc.) before getting another. Luckily 2 of the 3 were ones I needed to complete my box back then. Now, getting those rares is a matter of running around a house SE of of the slasher.

    My compassion sage doesn't seem to work anymore. I'm double clicking it, and it does nothing. Anyone know why?

    on LS, got my first after a handful of kills, 2nd was about 75-80 controllers later. The spawn rate is definitely cranked up, Was kinda fun to have 3-4 at once, then see a para pop out.
