    no I have 20 so far I don't believe anyone would bother destroying any totems to make the Liche go away while the are able to farm him for the book and trinket since there is no reward for using the sac's, maybe nov 16th if I knew which one was closet to being destroied I'd use the sac's

    Um, I haven't completed the quest yet at all. I'm a greedy bastage that just wants L337 L007. WOOT!

    *edit*Ya know, actually I was just thinkin about this. It would have been more complex, but if they had put this in place where pulling a book or totem was either enhanced or only possible once you had committed yourself to eradicating the foul spawn...

    Yep.

    I've used 6 and am hunting for more.

    The lack of reward has basically killed my chances, though.

    Also from an RP perspective, the Khaldun "invasion" is contained, and the Shadowlord invasion is not....So that seems to Galen like it should be the priority, even though the Khaldun "invasion" is in Jhelom (the city he represents on the High Council).

    As I understand it, you use the sack to destroy the totem in order to stop the spawn. But since the spawn will eventually be stopped at some point anyway, and as you apparently get nothing for destroying the totem, other than bragging rights, why bother?

    Regine thinks we will do it just to do the right thing.

    I hope she's right, and I'm sure as Hell going to try, but I personally think she's wrong.

    EA apparently still doesn't understand their player base.

    if the sac requirement to end spawn was much less then i'd use mine to force trammies to come to fel, but since its like 250 im just gonna save mine
     
  9. Amen to that.

    If the UO playerbase landed in Oz, the munchkins would be wiped out in a night.

    Because a rumor would start that they drop oversized lollipops as special loot.

    *afterthought edit*
    If the devs want the PCs to "do the right thing" they need to reward that path of action with some sort of item drop. Because that's the only way most UO players will do it.

    To busy farming books and talismans to worry about anything else.

    Oh and farming people who are farming liches in Fel is fun too.

    Yup, I've heard there were Santas Dec. '97, but players killed them to get their black leather gloves.

    Heck, we just kill stuff.

    Especially if there is a reward.

    If you want me to run here and find this talk to that person explain their problems to this person way over here, take item back to point of origination there dern well had better be something nice in it.

    But killin stuff, heck we killed LB just to see if we could. No real reward necessary at all. At least not if we just need to do it once.

    Santa is evil...he breaks into your house via the chimney, steals your cookies and then leaves crappy gifts to make up for his cookie heist. Killing him is the right thing to do, the black gloves are just a reward for bringing him to justice.

    60 poison sacs dropped on... Britain Graveyard... Felluca... Catskills.

    Lets find out who drops which facet bone totems down first...

    Thank you for all your help!
     
  16. Rainz's PK event ten years ago is STILL being talked about. And will probably always be a humorous footnote to Ultima Online history.

    The one PK event I look back on fondly :p (although I personally did not witness it)

    Oh I dunno. Fred and Bob wars were very cool. Casting EQ at the Brit bank ...lol. Well, I don't think any one but the offender actually died but OMG it was funny to see.

    with all the graveyards and no way of telling which totem is closer to being destroyed it's like Dev's wasted time on a pointless part of the quest. I seriously don't believe they actually thought about this quest long enuff, looks like they through a bunch of ideas in a box to try and create a quest at the last min not realizing cause and effect it would actually have.

    Maybe we could post Quest ideas...
    With all the domino effect explained...
    Pleasing both fel and tram players.

    Good luck with that.

    Come to Siege. Here you get killed just for not being able to run fast enough.
