    I've looked, so far, in:
    Ice Dungeon (and the area out the T2A exit).
    Orc Dungeon.
    Serpent's Hold (and the surrounding area).
    Currently looking in Fire.

    I may be wrong but did it not say that the slimes would not be in dungeons. "Slimes are on the move! Driven out of their dungeons by the dark forces corrupting the land"
    I have checked the area from compassion to yew so far and nothing. this was after patch and server downtime...
     
  5. As you wish! ;)

    Fields West of Britain, Trammel. (17:20 gmt+1) Only greyish colours atm.

    A few things to mention:

    They are really fast, and I mean REALLY!
    They are NOT attackable, at least in Trammel
    They will you knock of your mount
    They will poison you

    Have fun!

    Looks like Dark Blue and Light Olive are the rarer colors today, others are shades of grey and shades of brown, that I have seen so far, if you stay within the guard zone you will not suffer damage from the poison etc.

    1 Stay in peace mode to use the dyes
    2 Don't waste energy running after them, they move VERY fast and teleport
    3 Look for a crowd around one, usually one that has pet attacking it
    4 Be patient, as it will cause you to get frustrated sometimes.

    So after I complete the quest i get the title 'Slime Hunter', how do I get to keep the dyes? Or do I have to be holding the item I want dying and then dye it real time off the slime?

    Saunders, if you don't carry greater cure potions, these lil slimes CAN be very dangerous! Sure, they hit for 1 hp, but their poison bites and is hard to cure!!
     
  12. Boogieman

    Boogieman Guest

    They poison you - yes. But I didn't seem to loose any hitpoints from it, before I got off the subserver. They are not dangerous alone.
    When they get to spawn in one of the dungeons, I guess their poison can be a problem because it prevents you from healing.
     
  13. Seasseragh

    Seasseragh Guest

    Maybe the poison didn´t hit because you were in a guard zone at Britain Fields?

    Do you need to have a quest going to use them as dye tubs? If so, where is the quest giver?

    So confused...
     
  15. Kiminality

    Kiminality Guest

    The quest giver is in the bit outside the Jhelom docks, north of the moongate.
    I think to dye things, you don't need the quest. The quest is just for "Slime Hunter" title.

    So... I've been looking, and I can't find a one.
    I missed the first, because I was busy :(

    Are there none?
    Or are folk just not spilling the beans?

    You can only dye enhanced items and arties :/
    To dye you have to have the item in your backpack. Stand close to the slime and dbl click it and target the item you wanna dye.

    Anyone found other special colours except dark blue and light olive?

    Hello peeps!

    A few little things to add if i may be so bold!

    Got back today from festivities, and on a random thought me cohort ms Polly looked into the olde farmlands t' west o' britain...
    Lo and behold, a bunch o acid slimes!
    Cor!

    So about we ran, hither and thither, trying to dye a few odds and ends.
    My that was tricky! A few broken last object macros, and a couple of trinkets chromatified, but not many.

    Later through the evening, the following things appear to be relevant, and hopefully useful, unlike the pre-ambling-drivel :



    I think there maybe two types of slime, the plain "Acid Slime" and the "Acid Slime (Coloured)"
    The (coloured) ones appear a bit more agressive, which is useful, considering the following tactic seemed to work quite well for me :

    Get a mount, as they are speedy.
    Attack and run at the slime.
    This gets it's attention, and quite possibly dismounts you.
    But have no fear, for we are in a guard zone, and..


    Once you have engaged in combat with a slime, do not give chase!
    Remain still, and with a bit of luck it will wobble it's way back to ye!


    Once you have a slime interested in you, it should keep coming back, you can click it to get a dyeing target, then wait for it to come back (the slime has to be on the screen for the actual dying) before you click the lucky recipient item.

    So far, me likes :

    Gold bricks!
    Marties!
    Doom arties!
    Tokuno stealables!
    Tokuno minors and majors!
    Baskets!
    10th anni drops - sculptures for example!!
    Berserkers Scythes, Pyros Staffs!

    Gotta try : lamposts, scrappers, Oak Deeds!

    (not sure if scrappers will work as some other crafed-arties didnt seem to... oh and glacial staffs didnt either :( )

    They also seem to change AI of occaision :
    a running away mode
    a teleporting mode
    (these two seem to be independent and often combined)
    a friendly mode (coming to attack you!)
    a stationary mode (confused?)

    Or something like that. if you are patient with one, sometimes they will just get stuck (trees/mountains/etc.) and you can dye repeatedly.

    All a bit of conjecture and tips observation, but have fun, and if anyone can remind me where the actual quest for the title is, and how the title works(!) i will be grateful to ye!!!

    Oh, and the deadly poison is fine in the guard zone, but as the ever helpful Mim Foxglove pointed out to me, leaving the guardzone will result in full-force-deadly-poison-ification!

    :)

    I'm liking this bit of the invasion, as even my non-combat girls can get a 'Slime hunter' title :) (just wait till the poison wears off to leave the area). The quest giver is Lyla the Researcher in the North Jhelom docks offices, who gives you 3 bowls to fill with acid (double-click slime then click bowl), and then to return to Iakas at the Moonglow Zoo. KR throws up an error in the gump when you try to claim the title, but it's OK in 2D. http://www.uoguide.com/Pursuit for full details.

    Oo, also, the marked colours seem to be 'dark blue' and 'light olive', but when applied to an armour 'set' still get overidden by the set colour on completion.

    Flame: as I understand it the dyes work on the mage suit as the Tok dyes did on thw virtue armour. You *can* colour the individual pieces, but when the suit combines, it takes on the "combined" colour, and then the pieces revert to default when you take off the suit.

    ty for reply, it seems like a bug then that it reverts when full set worn perhaps, so if I get a chance I will try to dye it red and not wear it till I hear its safe, (if it ever is safe :))

    I just went and tried it, no you cannot dye them at all.
     
  32. Any set suits will always change over to there combined colour when worn as a full set.
    Darkwood armour does this as does the virtue armour set.
    probably the best things to dye are :
    Full suits (no stats) ready for imbueing
    Wood pieces
    dragon armour (silver dragon anyone)
    Decoration artifacts ( the olive green lamp posts look great!)
    The new hues have the name of the hue next to the slime
    the dark blue looks really nice on weapons and shields

    Today's location is:
    [​IMG]

    Doom, North West corner.

    I'm finding shadow jump works pretty well for getting close to them, and it may be my imagination, but they seem to teleport off less if I wait a second or two beside them before I target them.

    btw, if anyone is interested I now have 18 slime-dyed large beds in copper, agapite, shadow blue (I think) light olive and dark blue.

    Sorcerer's dungeon is near Valor gate. Turn West to the river, cross it, then follow it south. The area shown in the map is level 2.

    Thanks for that :), just so people know the slimes damge your armour pretty severly, they nearly broke my gloved so I went and got them reparaired and went back and they broke them again :(. Also I saw this on uo's website....

    "All shards will be published during their next regularly scheduled maintenance. Here are the notes:

    The Slime Event will be extended until January 24th.
    Slimes will now switch locations every 3 days.

    New hues will be available.
    Barding deeds can no longer be colored with Tokuno dyes.
    Barding deeds can no longer be recycled.
    All swamp dragons with Tokuno dyed barding armor will be reverted to iron.
    All dyed barding deeds will be reverted to iron."

    looks like the pretty colored swamp dragons will get smurfed :(

    I found that i get poisoned less when i teleport around them, if I run or walk or stealth they just go for me. I did try orange petals which dont seem to work I was not immune to the poison and was taking maybe 15-20 hps per spasm.

    yes, unfortunately teleport/shadow jump don't work in the mine. Petals only work to level 5 poison, greater. This is deadly, only a potion or cast cure will work, and that sometimes fails too. I just died in there, and I was actually trying to get the vases! Luckily I had a gem of salvation on me.

    Sorry a little off topic but have you found that if you say No to using the gem of salvation it dissapears anyway? Is that a bug or supposed to happen?
