    You dont have to hit any switches to get to the champ spawn area. You just go straight thru the door, follow the winding corridor until you reach the funny looking portal and step in.

    There is no secret that I know of. That second pic is a dead end. You need to go the other way.

    actually the wooden area there opens up when you use the switches in a certain sequence and reveals a hidden stairway down.

    Are you sure you're not thinking of a private shard?

    i have never played a "private shard" but i can clearly remember going down there years ago on atlantic. perhaps their broken or something but im certain that you used to be able to get down there. just look at it, its obviously meant to be used anyways. the more i think about it i think it takes like 3 ppl to get down there. 2 have to work the switches and 1 has to stand in a certain spot but im not sure exactly what the sequence is. its very frustrating, i been trying to figure it out for days.

    I've never heard of that.
    That wooden area is a static, anyway. There's no way that it could dynamically be removed, because it isn't a dynamic object. It's stored in the map file on your local machine.

    I'd really like to hear how this is done. It would also restore a little faith in this game.

    Although I could've sworn that little bridge thing was a static object...

    i remember seeing that on one occasion and trying to figure it out was told the same thing that it goes no where and thats its nothing but then again thats like the ship under the sea (for those who know this one yes its really old like five years old if i remember the post correctly) there are allot of odd and wonderful places in uo its just a matter of finding them and figuring out how they work

    btw is it something that only works on fel side as i was told the switches in one of the dungeons are for fel side for the champ hunt

    Well there's nothin about it in the original UO strategy guide. Seeing as how the classic dungeons have more or less been completely untouched since the game began, it's safe to assume you're simply remembering wrong, or it was a shard or event specific teleporter to a special area.

    i believe what you're speaking of is vaguely mentioned in the deceit book.

    wheres this deciet book found?
     
  23. Trebr Drab

    Trebr Drab Guest

    It's a book in the game. Link below, but this is where to find the in game books text on Stratics....
    Left column under Partners and Subsites go to Stories and Secrets, then under History and Lore go to Books.
    The book is titled Deceit: A dungeon of horrors, by Mercenary Justin

    http://uo.stratics.com/secrets/books/book_07.shtml

    By the way, for another curiousity in Deceit, check out the Crystal Balls. The first are in the first room to the right as you enter. 2 Crystal Balls, and one of them is the most unique one. As you click it it repeats fortellings that seem to make sense if you know the lore of the Ultima games and follow the history of UO. But as much as I've tried, I can't find any worthwhile meaning. The other repeats what players say in the area, and is linked to a Crystal Ball farther in, in one of the sets of rooms that are along the passage before you get to the stairs down to level 2. So, if a player says something near one ball, anyone clicking on either ball can hear what they said.It may take a few tries though, sometimes it seems out of order, although once you find it the order will be in place.
    There's another set like this in the room full of liches (on Trammel, anyways) just before you go down to the last level. One on each side of the room.

    The fortellings of the first Crystal Ball are as follows...

    well i went down and checked it out but i think the 2 switches need to be thrown around the same time if you click them they goto a second position and then a couple seconds later they goto a third on there own so may need a second person

    i also looked for a switch around the 2 statues but couldn't fin one the statue in the NE corner can be seen behind if using transparency but the other one can not

    need to start a guild of the "holders of the secrets" or "myth finders" :lol:
     
  25. I could be wrong, but i belive the only way to get under that wooden platform is with a bug, that i dont think it can be mentioned here.
     
  26. Well i just tried it with 2 people, one per switch, nothing happened

    You're looking at the wrong statues. In the room where there's 2 stone pegasus statues, well on GL Trammel you can only see one now. One of them is sunk into the stone dais it's supposed to be on top of, like the other. This sunken one is supposed to sink when you click it, I think there used to be a lever behind it. But now it's sunk to floor level (inside the stone, you can see it with transparency) and the lever's been removed (if it ever was there, I'm not sure now.)

    This is interesting. There does seem to be something below that area....
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    And beyond that area is more.....
    [​IMG]

    This is just like the "dirt spot" area in Yew where there is an unfinished underground area, which was reached by an early exploit by some players. It was an underground location very similar in looks to the exit from the Lost Lands from the lighthouse to the Yew Jails.

    There are a few other "underground" areas like this in Sosaria. For example you can bypass a set of stairs in Hythloth by dropping down from the wrong end, into a small but useless underground area. You've bypassed the teleport to the next level by doing so. But most of what's been found seems like broken stuff that didn't work quite right, or was left unfinished.

    Still, there may be something to this, and I wonder if a few players did indeed find something here.

    One question I have is this. I don't have KR. Would someone who does see if you get the same "water" by clicking the areas indicated in my pics?
