    enhancing with stone gives different bonus's then metal?

    have been plodding along this last week or so making a uber stone suit for my thrower.
    wanted to get the +55 LMC for him.

    so i made up the suit, got it all powdered and imbued up.
    got to the point where i was gonna enhance the suit to give me a little more resistance points to push me over the 70 mark on all resists.

    pulled up the master list on UO.com of material bonus so i could figure out which colored stones i should use to get my desired resistances. here is the list on uo.com

    so i enhanced the first piece and noticed that the material bonus's where not in line with UO.com.
    did the 2nd piece.... same thing.
    3rd piece..... same thing.
    4th.... wait for it.... same thing.

    so.... anyone else notice this?

    ill give a little detail on this.
    i was told and also assumed that the material bonus's where the same for the colored stone as they are for the colored ore.
    so for Dull Copper we should get 6/0/0/0/0 but instead i got 10/0/0/0/0
    and with Agapite we should get 2/3/2/2/2 but instead i got 2/7/2/2/2
    Verite should be 3/3/2/3/1 but instead i got 4/4/3/4/1
    Valorite should be 4/0/3/3/3 but instead i got 5/0/4/4/4
    so those are some pretty drastic changes.

    anyone else find this?

    also, on a related note, has anyone else noticed that is dosnt matter what material you make a stone amulet out of they will always have the same total resistance?
    you can make a plain stone one, will have 30 total resistance.
    you can make it with any of the other colored stones and it will have a total of 30.
    you can enhance a plain stone one with any color of other stones and it will have a total of 30.

    strange, no?

    If I remember right (and it's been a while) it's been like that from the start. The same reason that Gargoyle's armor has higher base stats than human/elves.

    its the only material that gargoyles can wear that will give them the +3% LMC bonus per item.
    which will in turn let you go past the 40 LMC cap so you can run 55% LMC on your Garg Melee guy.

    Well, as far as Stratics, both the Material Bonuses page and the Runic Bonuses page show stone and metal to bring the same end results so I am not sure why you found out that enhancing works differently ...

    That could also explain the continual lack of stone in pirate and merchant ships holds, but what a pain to mine for!

    The UO.com page has not been updated since that publish has been out. Its pretty sad that the 3rd party "fan sites" can update their pages/guides well before the official website (uo.com) can get around to doing it.

    Oh Poo! as a staff Alumnus I thought you knew to Trust in Petra! Our Stratics pages are upto date with all recent changes incorporated. It's the task I took on in April 2009 to bring Stratics uo playguide pages upto date and keep them that way. I've not given up on the project yet.

    I'd be happy too, lol. But their time table is short- I start back to college in a couple of months to finish off my Masters.
