    So....how safe is it to cut wood in Felluca?

    Now that criminals can enter towns isn't it easy to sneak up on you with stealth and just kill you anyway?

    I'd say no, not very risky, most pvp happens around Yew gate or champ spawn areas. Stay away from those and you'll probably be fine.

    Well, if one chops wood with just an uninsured robe, there is no loss in insurance.
    All that one risks is losing a little wood every now and then. No biggie, is it ?

    When your backpack s full, just recall to a Trammel ruleset town.

    Generally the PvP crowd is active near moongates and popular hunting grounds (dungeons, champ spawns, etc). It would be best to avoid Lumberjacking in those areas.

    I get most of my lumber from Felucca, just be smart about it. I also lumberjack n Ter-Mur for the imbuing ingredients (http://uo.stratics.com/database/view.php?db_content=gameitem&id=2877).

    Stayin Alive,

    You can still Lumberjack while it sits in the stables. You will simply be recalling more frequently.

    You'll be safe. I don't lumber or mine with a bug, just fill my pack, go home, dump it on the porch and then head back out. Never been killed by a red. Did meet a miner the other day while out 'jacking, but he just ran away and left his beetle behind when I said hello...

    I play Chessy, which to my understanding is somewhere on the higher side of shards population wise. I haven't done much LJ in Fel lately, but I do quite a bit of mining. I've yet to run into any reds while mining, and I suspect that LJ is even less likely to find them, given that there's a lot more remote space for LJ. Personally I'd just imbue myself a 100% LRC barbed leather suit, grab some rune books and go. Should you die you're out ... maybe 1000 gold or something?

    Seems like it's quite worth the risk to me.

    I don't even run across any reds in the dungeons, though I admittedly don't do many champ spawns, and play at off peak times.

    Mark a rune before recalling. Use a macro (target stored) to do it with one click. This makes more simple to keep in mind where you have chopped and where you haven't yet.

    I'm on Pacific and do all of my LJ'ing in Fel, I have several runes marked to various remote areas with abundant trees. I actually take my beetle and two pack horses and recall back to my house when they are full, empty the packs and then recall to the next spot in my book, rinse wash repeat. Been doing this for about two years now and haven't seen anyone else, blue, grey or red.

    You cant recall to Delucia/Fel but once you are there, you have plenty of trees within a guard zone.

    Yes, I'm ussually logging in Delucia, but on Trammel side. It's quite nice there.

    Thanks for the input.
