Did I read this correctly? Anyone able to find any details on this? Test center pic?
? read it where?
I thought that sounded nice too. I am hopeful that it is able to be imbued with a max imbuing intensity of 450... And then able to be enhanced.
Well with them saying it's uber I would expect it to be over 450 already.
Regardless of that, all artifacts should be able to be imbued to at least 450.
where u guys see this at?
Guys, I think I found it. Has these stats:
jk ;D waiting on someone to pull clilocs or what not
Can I ask the DEV's 1 question? @Mesanna, @Kyronix WHY!?!?!? Why a Mempo the ugliest thing in the game??????? I hate them... Why is it when you make a neat item for the neck it has to be the ugliest fricking thing in the game????
I already HATE passionately that you made my Luck tamer so flipping hideous with that stupid mempo of fortune now you make another Mempo item????? *pukes* And I asked a 100 times already to please add the stinking mempo to the Minax turn in's so I can stop having to wear the thing... and get something nice looking but NOOOOO you didn't..... so now you make another fugly mempo? *sighs* Please NO.
I'm trying to be positive but seriously!?!?! I like to see my characters FACE... not a stupid ugly mempo. A necklace would be nice... a gorget is just fine.... but a freaking Mempo? Really? WHY!?!?!
it puts the lotion on the skin.
mempo reminds me of that...
so in summary, you really like mempos, right? ;P
This mempo, disregarding the appearance, is still the first step in the right direction for imbueing. This will have been the first single mod specialty reward/drop item, in which we could use more with other various non regular single mods. For instance, 2 fcr, 3% sdi, 2% spell consumption, 5% ssi, & the list may go on for out of the ordinary mods that are not found, or perhaps go unused from past artifacts. Wouldn't mind seeing ordinary, but over imbue cap single mod armor such as 10% hci, 10%dci as well, but possibly limited to only 1 corresponding neck, arm, or hand armor slot for each race. Also the possibility of releasing new plain, imbue-able armor sets, when combined give bonus attributes, similar to the Bestial, and other Cleanup imbue-able sets.
It would furthermore be nice to have single mod jewelry have the potential to drop again. They used to when Shame was first revamp'd, but then a patch occurred, & they no longer spawned, /sadface. Please bring single mod jewelry spawning back into the Revamp Loot random equation again. Perhaps add a jewelry reward option that can give a random max mod including intensities of 20% hci, 20% dci, 5 & 10% ssi, 4 fcr, 25% lrc, 30% & 35% potion enhance, 15 & 18% sdi & lastly 30% & 35% di.
The mempo was created so that anyone wearing a jingasa could hide their face from the shame.
I mean... yikes. It was that or a paper bag.
I don't wear a Jingasa.... I'm sorry but it's really hard to RP and take your character seriously when you look at them wearing a silly Mempo. It's very difficult to get into your character when you can't see their face and all you can think about is Hannibal Lector or something when you look at them. Honestly I really don't see why a Gorget wouldn't do the job? PLEASE rethink the mempo. And please add the Leurocians Mempo of Fortune to the Minax turn in's so I can get a gorget or necklace or something so I can see my characters pretty face again.
I was kidding...
I think the mempo is hideous too.
To each his or her own. I like the mempos - they hide the hideous burn scars on my warrior's face, received in the battles for Magincia. It's a reminder that you can't win every battle. And my stealther wears a mempo, and I think it fits the character.
When it comes to people that still role play, I don't know if I should be shaking my head or be impressed with the dedication.
it's the glue of this game. It's certainly not the pvp talkers in general chat, the smiths, the sampires or the tamers etc. No roleplayers are why this game will exist forever.
any idea of whats on the mempo yet?
I actually like the mempo and use it on all of my human and elf characters including mages.
Only because there are NO other games out yet that are so wonderful for RP. Most games claim to have some but it's all scripted.. and your scripted into a role whether it suits you or not. UO is still the best sandbox on the market perfect for RP.
For those interested, here is a screenshot. It is imbutable with a 500 intensity cap 5 property cap, and is enhancable.
I think a lack of imagination and creativity is part of why people like the scripted rp.. I noticed a few people who liked wow came to try uo out with me and they didn't know what to do because they have choices. They were so used to being told what to do.
rp can be as simple as not wearing shoes, it doesn't have to be full out hardcore style, talking in old english etc.
pretty cool mempo, have a lot of ideas for that baby.
I think the Mempo makes perfect sense RP wise. A mempo covers the face providing more protection than a gorget would. It would only make sense that ALL very powerful neck armor be mempos.
Mempos are beast! I have them on all characters

Cetric does the fc1 count in the total 500 weight? ie 140/500 currently?
When it comes to people that still PvP, especially given how often they've rolled onto these boards and onto Global Chat whining about how bad it sucks these days and how there's no reason to do it, I don't know if I should be shaking my head or be impressed with the dedication.
Actually the answer's pretty clear and it's not the latter.
As to the issue of why it's a mempo?
Several possibilities. Some good reasons, some bad reasons.
Bad reasons include:
--There's a degree to which the team sometimes seems to forget that there's other neck pieces in the game. (Remember Queen Dawn's guards? They should have had regular plate gorgets, not mempos. As far as I can tell they just forgot there was a plate neck piece other than the plate mempo.)
--They are thinking of some years ago when, when a lot of us were wearing mempos because plate mempos, due to the peculiarity of mage armor coming resident on samurai plate and there being a tad too many valorite runic hammers around relative to normal game mechanics back then, were the best neck pieces available. I think that might've created an institutional memory among the team that said "the players like mempos." They should look around now, though. Mempos are comparatively rare.
Good reasons include:
--This is an illicit reward for doing an illicit thing. Mempos kind of cover your face.
--For that reason, mempos covering your face, they allegedly were associated with Ninjas, according to a documentary I saw. (I fret, though, that they might've been confusing the mempo with the infamous ninja hood, which was utilized for similar reasons.) (Mempos of course also were associated with Samurai, for very different reasons.)
Which of these reasons, if any!, led them to use the mempo for this item, I don't know.
We picked the mempo because it seemed fitting that Slim, who has dealings in illicit affairs, would cover his face. I guess we could've put it on Slim himself, but then you wouldn't be able to see his smashing good looks.
should just implement a way to alter stuff to other stuff that has the same function for looks purposes.
norse helm to plate helm
straw hat to bandana
heater shield to buckler
plate arms to ring arms
you know the drill... pay some npc 250k, click your item and a gump comes up of what you can alter it to. You basically have the functions built in with gargoyle altering and the blackthorn artifacts. would allow some customization at least.
Look folks... mempos were designed for us broke folks who can not afford trips to da dentist...
did i hear your tounge fall out your mouth followed by some drool while you said that?
All the mempo hate :<, my personal favorite for the neck slot (Aside from the Ankh Neckalce, but those don't give anything mod wise)
God, I always hated the SE art, and a lot of the art hence. So much of it is so quite plainly horrible, I just don't understand how some art supervisor looked at it and said "Yeah, that looks good, well done."
Like, I am no amazing artist, but I am quite certain I could make a MUCH less stupid looking Mempo/Jingasa (among others) at very least in the paperdoll art.
honestly, isn't that how a mempo is supposed to look, though? the jingasa reminds me of graphics out of X-COM UFO Defense (it looks rather dated when compared to the crisp metal armors), but then again, I never liked regular leather caps, either (and back in the day people would wear hats before leather caps, usually, in the I-can-play-naked days).
I guess what i mean to say is there is a difference between personal taste and how an item should actually look...like I mean, what if the tribal mask looked more like this:
some might like it better, but would it be "tribal?" ;P
don't get me started on the leather cap... heh
Hey, if you wanted to start a rpg 1900's football team guild or something they would be right on the money...
I've never liked the Samurai Empire, Tokuno-style armor either.
However, I do see what they were going for. The wikipedia page on Japanese armor has some images which match pretty well my reading and documentary-watching on this and related subjects:
Some Japanese armor looks under-stated and elegant to Western eyes, but more often (again, to Western eyes) it seems to look bulky and ridiculously obvious.
One of the many reasons I'm grateful for many of the changes we've seen over the last few years (Imbuing; Reforging; the Blackthorn artifacts; etc) is that one no longer is to a great degree forced to wear the SE armor in order to wear the best stuff.
And I must confess that the Heavy Platemail Jingasa:
most-closely matches my favorite (from an aesthetic perspective) Western-style helmet. The Wikipedia calls this the "kettle hat"
though I cannot confirm the accuracy of that name.
I also have a certain fondness for the Platemail Battle Kabuto, or at least I would if it didn't have those horns!
Eh kinda let down was hoping it would be better I can't see dropping a good neck peice with over capped mods for this low resist peice that can have 4 mods imbued on it I thought this might be nice for my archer mage to run since he has a -fc on his bow instead of running the town bonus fc but I don't think it's worth it but thanks for the pic cetric
Is it possible to reforge it or is the fact that FC1 shows up as a mod negate the ability to do so?
Can this be altered or will there be a gargoyle version of this?
If the item is just an ordinary exceptional tagged item, (GM made), you should be able to re-forge it only if the item doesn't have any mods, right? So I would assume you can't re-forge it?
2/4/3/3/3 w/ FC 1 is 140 weight (for FC), which leaves 360 weight to play with...
using the Flash-based tool I built but I don't think ever released yet except to guildies, that could yield you:
1 Faster Casting, 20 Lower Reagent Cost, 8 Lower Mana Cost, 15 Resist, 7 Resist [496 INT] (maybe physical and fire)
for 17/11/3/3/3, FC 1, 20 LRC, 8 LMC
or you could swap LRC with 2 MR, or I guess swap a resist out with 2 MR... (they're all the same weight)
I still think the town fc outshines this when you can get great over capped mods from a re forged peice or shame arti maby a 4 6 chiver could use this
You need to Bump the Resists up to at least make it Comparable to something crafted by a player. Right now, even if it can enhance, its -20 Resists from an exceptional 100 Arms lore Barbed Mempo. Bump it up to 7/9/8/3/8 or something similar to make it actually Uber beyond the Fc 1. I'm sure coding that won't be easy because of how the Loot system is Designed to give the Minimum Resists and then Anything above that is considered an extra mod.
If they keep it the way it is, though, you can pay extra at store for 100% enhance ;P...they gonna want that money haha
I agree... There needs to be a gargoyle version of an imbuable necklace with FC 1! Hey isn't there another Slim in Ter Mur? Maybe he can get into the fencing business too and give gargish rewards.
I think the mempo is fine how it is. 500 wieght clean fc makes it very useful, but not to the point where it becomes O.P.ed
Pair it with a resist artifact piece and resists arent an issue. I think if it did have exceptional/armslore resists it would be overpowered.
Opens up tons of options for bracelets now that orny isnt basically required for 50ep mageweapon suits.
Personally id still go with something else, but it does really help cramped templates. Pallys and spellweavers with FC4 cap will love this item im sure.
I love mempos
I love lamp
