    Oh my the changes in gathering wood are very dishearting. I could not find any wood except lower end. I think UO must have made one big mistake. I would ask that the ones that created this, take out their lumberjack. Find out how very hard it is.

    There are two schools of thought to this.

    One is that it's now interesting to chop wood again, 'cause there's no longer as much point to hopping from rune to rune, and the "rare" spots are less likely to be camped.

    The other is that once the novelty wears off, you realise it's near impossible to get a large supply of the rare woods without chopping for a significantly longer period of time then before... Handing scripters a significant advantage in the field.

    On the other hand... Rare wood isn't exactly in high demand, is it? I mean, let's face it, the decorative items you can make out of the stuff are for the most part dyable, and look better without colours anyway.

    And as for the weapons/armor carpenters make...

    I like that the wood is random now even though it is harder to get the rare woods (actually, I think that's *why* I like it).

    It would have been even cooler if you could tell from the tree graphic what kind of wood it had. And when you chopped it down, the trees disappeared and left a stump, only to respawn after a bit with a different graphic/wood type.

    But I can't even imagine the performance hit from hundreds of dynamic tree spawns. Haha.

    Try Malas. I found a few of the rare trees, marked them, and the wood kept spawning in the same tree until the last patch :( I've since found another frostwood, but no bloodwood so far. They seem to reset with a patch. The undyeable addons take on the colour of the wood used. I like the frostwood loom and forge, and the statues.

    Oh I forgot:

    Elves

    Innate Night Sight
    Infused with Magic - increased energy resistance cap.
    Knowledge of Nature - increased chance to gain special resources; colored ore when mining or special boards when lumberjacking.
    Difficult to Track - Elves are more difficult to track than Humans.
    Perception - increased chance to detect hidden passively.
    Wisdom - increased maximum mana.

    I did the human to elf quest on my miner/lumberjack

    I get more rare wood from my tree stump than from lumberjacking. :sad4:
