[Inscription] Define 'super slayer' and whats SDI cap on spellbooks?

Discussion in 'UO Spellcaster' started by Sally Cinnamon, Aug 31, 2008.

  1. Those are my questions, also, while we're on -- what are approx prices for these spellbooks? I've seen them differing in various vendors, I'm more interested in LRC, blood/poison/snow ele, and SDI amounts if anyone knows anything, I'm on Europa shard, but would be glad to hear from people on others too.


    Thanks in advance!

    You could get a super-slayer; Elemental slayer. This would do damage on all elementals, but would also be more expensive.

    A 'Superslayer' is a spellbook/weapon that would work on a family of monsters instead of a single monster, for example an "Elemental" slayer would work on all elemental monsters (Water,Earth,Blood ...) while a Blood El Slayer would only work on the Blood El. (and DF dont know why but any El slayer will give a boost on DF)

    Spellbooks can only be crafted with a range of 1 - 9 Spell Damage Increase.

    For superslayers I sell on Baja for (these prices are base, good mods +++$$)
    Elemental 1 - 1.5M
    Arachnid 500k - 1M
    Demon 2 - 2.5M
    Undead 1 - 1.5M
    Repond 1M
    Reptile 1 - 1.5M

    For non superslayers unless they have good mods I usually sell for 5k except Dragons,Ogres and Scorpion (Miasma) that I usually price at 10k

    All pricing is on normal spellbooks, scrappers are another ball of wax on pricing and if you get a superslayer scrapper your in the money baby!!!!
     
  4. Oooh. Fab thanks. Have a repond, arachnid, ele and a few reptile so far. Made hundreds upon hundreds though. I'm on Europa, wondering what sort of prices they'll fetch -- I'm decidedly poor in comparison to when I took the break lol, everything seems to cost so much more, maybe its me :)

    Sitting on 18k scrolls, with 17 gains to go to GM so might see about doing a few of those scrappers too:D

    Thanks again for the help - any more info gladly received:bowdown:
     
  5. and another, while i think! The SD cap being 9%, I have a LOAD of those books and started filing anything below 9 (as it happens!) into the donation to the library bags.. are they worth anything do you know?

    SDI is like LRC if it completes someones suit then they want it bad but trying to find those buyers is hard, if I get SDI/LRC on a slayer or a 3 property spellbook then I try to sell them but for just a book with SDI or LRC on its own or with a crappy mod I have just been turning them in at Brit Library Rewards.

    I havent played Europa but when I buy or sell on another shard I try to think in Baja pricing and then look at what shard traders compare gold for on different shards to give me a baseline to work with. I find 1M on Baja does not equal 1M on another shard FYI
     
  7. So the 100 or so SDI 9% and nothing else books i've kept are worthless - I did wonder, they came along perhaps 1 in 30 books so couldn't have been too rare hehe. Off to Brit Lib now to trade in, i'm scared at the amount of time its gonna take :)

    The way I do it, is I go through about 200-300 scrolls (what my weight limit will allow me to carry) and then recall direct to the library. I don't even look at the crafted spellbooks until I am at the library. As I return them, I find the good ones and keep them. The rest I return. This keeps my bank box from filling up and seems to work well. Of course, you do need to be careful and actually read the properties before clicking the mouse to turn it in.

    You've hard far more success than me with super slayers. I desperately want to craft a Repond for myself to keep... but alas, no success yet.

  9. I have two reponds. I'll probably keep one. If I thought you would keep it legitimately I'd give it to you for free to get across your own way? Presuming char transfer is allowing bankbox ofc. Never done it.
