    I mean what in the hell are you people thinking? I mean damn PVP already sucks and consist of nothing but DISMOUNTS, ALL KILL WITH DREAD MARE, AND SLEEP SPAM... If anything you need to be reducing the power of pets not creating more problems....

    Well, so far it's only on test. Hopefully it will only be tamable on test and not get on to live shards.

    arnt you on one in your sig?
     
  6. no-ones saying we cant kill a tamer! Everyone knows how much a pain in the ass tamers are, especially if theres 5 greaters hitting on you.
    So instead of a troll maybe you should think outside the box?

    Just being silly, since UO client has never had mount macros and now UO will, if cliloc strings suggest what will happen. People have to use UOA macros or third party right now. Now, mounted PvP will more accessible, putting banes, and everything else, under the microscope at a higher magnification. More people are thus likely to complain about the same sort of thing.

    As opposed to 5 archers, 5 mystics or 5 mages, they aren't a pain in the ass when they hit on you, LOL.

    I really don't see this causing anymore a problem than already exist (If you even want to consider it a problem), Dreadmares already exist and from what I understand these will not be much different in strength. I have a tamer and look forward to these pets as I was retired during the event with dreads and the only one I own kinda sucks.

    Nothing kills faster then a pack of 5 frenzy. Smart players run and don't stand there grasping their ankles. It is all about what is the latest and greatest. Untill the greatest has had their fun then they will make nerfs/changes. That is the balance to try and make the masses happy. The same river tears be flowing if the vanguard had been returned so others late coming had a chance at a mare.


    As the UO world turns, drama.

    Yup.

    Not a big deal, cry me a river. If you can't outsmart a pet, more fool you.
    It just evens the playing field for the havs and have nots...

    It would be helpful to have the developer who designed the new pet explain their point of view on the matter.

    Was that supposed to be jab at the op?



    I hope your game pvp is better than your uber board warrior skillz :(
     
  23. I think LordDrago has a point... maybe not well said, but still a valid point. It seems the OP is ranting about a tamer change without actually having tried it on TC, judging by linking to another thread. If the OP has actually tested it to see if it really is overpowered as claimed, then maybe he would have posted that valid and useful experience. Without that, it just comes across as another anti-tamer rant.

    Bane Dragons have a Slayer Vulnerability, much better than Dread Mares which don't.

    Not saying they don't both deserve nerfing (woohoo, triple negative!), but just giving exclusive access of overpowered pets to a select few doesn't exactly help things a lot.

    Its a re-hued swamp dragon it will be as popular as the reptalion, that's to say it will be awesome for a day for one person.

    Ill be honest, i really dont see the problem.

    So we have a new dread mare that has a different type of attack. Insted of a fire breath it has a poison breath...pretty cool in my opinion.

    Now the negative of it...you cannot med while riding it.

    Lets be really honest now too...that template is not a big thing in pvp. At least not on GL. And the ones that do exist are actually easier to kill than other mystics.

    Mystic mages spamming spell plague / magic arrow / nether bolt are worse than any tamer temp imo.

    No I'm fairly sure it looses the poison ability upon taming. there is a post by lord god on tamer forum and UHall.

    Just people freaking out methinks?

    I dont think the dread mares are the problem okay they should be a bit nerfed in PvP, it cant be that a dexxer is doing much lower damage then a pet, because the dexxer is limited to 35 direct damage!! This is absolutly wrong and not good at all.

    Another thing is the rescue of the pets, logout rescued, much too easy! No this shouldnt be the way! Everybody using a pet have to care about it and not logout and everything is fine, it is like ohh i got attacked logout and iam instantly hidden and teleported home ;)

    There should be a weapon which makes doubled or triple damage on pets like the former tribal spears.
     
  32. It does poison and breath in the same attack. But the breath (against 70's) is in the 30-40 range not 60's. (Idk where people got 60's from but it wasn't me!)

    The ones involved in the war were immune to low level poisons, and the tame ones are not, that is the ability loss I referred to somewhere.

    You make it sound like you NEED a dreadmare to PvP. Which isn't the case at all... and you shouldn't exaggerate. Dreadmare are nice, but they're definitely not the end all. Invis clears the threat, and a GD will rip apart a dreadmare being run by most PvP tamer templates because they have no defensive, aka healing, ability. My dragon has turned multiple Dreadmares into barbequed horse steak.


    I say they should just put 5 of every artifact special item ever put in game into a bag in everyones bank so we can all be equal! Because obviously, its not fair some have something and others don't. rolleyes:
