Does moving shot hit automatically?

    It seems I get hit all the time with moving shot, i can't figure exactly whether it's some lucky streaks or my crap gear (only 115 weapon powerscroll and +26% DCI).
    So is moving shot a never miss move, or not?

    While I'm at the 'I haven't PvPed in ages' questions, I can dismount my opponents quite easily when they're on a regular mount, but not on an etheral mount.
    Again, bad luck?

    And last question, can I kill an etheral mount?
    Because I'm more than irked by the cowardly tactics nowadays, people seem to spend more time running than fighting, and I'd like to kill my oppononent's mount reliably so we can have it close and personal.

    thx

    you get hit all the time because chances are the archers shooting you have 120 archery and you need more than 26 dci. Are you an archer or a different type of dexxer?

    As far as ethy mounts those are they easiet people to kill. Dismount them and keep spamming them so they cant remount, its not like a war horse than they can remount after a few seconds and rez on the run if they have to.

    - Get better gear , 120 weapon skill and 45+ DCI


    - It's better to dismount a player that rides an ethy because it gives you more of a chance to chase them down. If they had a faction horse or another mount, easily re-mounting and skip away would be more of the case.


    - You cannot kill an Ethereal mount. If you dismount a player riding one it will re-statue into a statuette in players backpack.


    I hope I helped! Good luck buddy and if anymore questions feel free to ask! :thumbup1:

    What do you mean, spamming them?

    The red I fought today at the champ spawn had a swamp dragon, when dismounting him he could just remount after 3 seconds or so. So I killed the swampy, then he used his etheral mount and now I understand why I never could kill his second mount :lol:

    And I'm an archer too, but no 120 archery powerscroll in a near future though, those are not affordable. Today I got a 120 peacemaking and yesterday a 120 healing, the kind of scroll you just leave on the ground :sad2:

    Last question: the dude slowed me down on several occasions, what weapon does that?

    Regular bow does paralyze blow and thats about it. Unless you got stam'ed out. (That means ran out of stamina to keep running full speed usually due to lose a big chunk of your HP)

    Most archers has 45 hit chance and some hit lower defense mod. You are clearly out-geared. In reality you need to have 70 defense chance increase to make the fight fair. Of course unless you can parry and evade which will not help you kill him anyways.

    UO RNG's a *****.

    70 DCI will help a bit tho. Most archers with good connection/hack can perma hit lower defense their target over and over unless their target dies or somehows out run them (not easy for legit players).

    Samething with my 120 resist. I can often resist 5 to 7 poison in a row but when you got low it seems like that you get poisoned every single freaking time at the worse possible timing.

    According to the math you should only get hit by a maxed out hit chance archer 37% of the time while under the influence of HLD, but they can get lucky and pump you with 3 AIs in a row then followed by 100 moving shots because we all know how "expensive" it is to use moving shot and the "HUGE" hci penalty that came with moving shot. :lol:

    Ninjitsu makes it more difficult but anyone riding an ethy over a war horse is either not in factions or not too smart.

    And as far as the spell that slows u down, it was not a para blow. It was most probably the sleep spell from the new mysta skill.

    I am 90% sure that HCI and DCI where changed recently to be hard capped at 45% meaning its pointless to stack above that, the only reason i still run with 60 is because that is what the suit had pre change.

    No stammed out, I carry loads of refresh, no problem. I mean slowed down, it's not the first time it happens to me, so it has to be a special item. I noticed an icon popping up when it happens, so it's a debuff, but obviously I had too much on my plate already to pay more attention to it :)

    how is someone using ninjitsu "not too smart" ? if your faction horses gets poisoned and your on foot your pretty a walking target... at least with ninjitsu you have a better chance of survival...

    Hmm the cap has been 45 for a LONG time. Stacking 70 DCI will nullify the effect of hit lower defense effect... I am suprisied you didnt know that...

    Do you know what is Hit Lower Defense for?:confused:

    Stop being a moron, I was obviously referring to riding an ethy over a war horse either means you arent in factions or that you are an idiot.

    I wasnt saying using ninjitsu made you an idiot, jeesh.

    Stop opening your mouth before you think.

    They implemented a HARD cap...meaning no matter how high you stack DCI it is 45%, when hit with HLD it drops to 20% REGARDLESS how high you have DCI due to the HARD cap.

    Looks like you are the one that needs to think before opening your mouth.

    The cap is indeed at 45% and I am pretty sure HLD lower defense by 25 (not 20) which can be nullified by overcapping DCI.

    You got it wrong both times. I guess you probably dont PvP or simply dont know jack about PvP. Go start a post and ask people who know if you dont believe me... :lol:

    So you are saying people who construct/imbued their godly suit to have more than 45 DCI are complete idiots... Actually 9 out of 10 PvP mages have DCI more than 45 simply because of HLD...
