    Can we get an official statement about the Arcane Focus and the Word of Death changes?

    I want to know whether I have to give up on this skill, or not.

    It's funny... these threads keep popping up, yet the silence from the people at the top continues.

    There ARE no people at the top. They all got fired. It's probably Jeremy (if that) sitting there at the computer with a C++ book by her side, tryin to figure out UO's ancient code.

    I guess give up the skill...

    It's the reason I got a 2nd account really.. It's hard to find enough people. I usually just deal with level 2 or 3 focus.
     
  8. What WoD changes? I haven't noticed any difference.

    I wasn't going to read this whole thread but that made me laugh a lot.

    Supposedly, without any Arcane Gem at all, the WoD damage is down to 10-15, even on the redlined bosses, instead of the 300ish you could get without a gem.
     
  11. As I am consistently doing anywhere from 350 to 510 damage using WoD after the change to Focus, and that's with having no Focus myself, I'd have to say that's a load of BS.

    I also haven't had any problem with WoD damage after Pub 54.
