    So...since I started playing on Siege I am making one warrior and one tailor.

    We all know (well, those of us who have tailors anyway) how much cloth it takes to GM tailoring...

    SOOOOooo....since I cannot buy cloth off NPC's here I have to do it the old-fashioned way...picking cotton and sheering sheep.

    Cotton is fine...5 bales per field times 2....but I hate waiting for the re-spawn, so I go to Yew Sheep Pens, sheer and kill...(sorry sheep fans)

    The sheep re-spawn rather quickly and i can gather 65-70 piles of wool in short order.

    So....since this is a mind-numbing task I decided to have a little fun....we all know (well, those of us who have gathered wool anyway) that at Yew Sheep Pen there are 6 white sheep and 1 black one...

    I decided to see if I could make ALL of the sheep spawn black...kind of takes the edge off the Sheer/Kill...Sheer/Kill.....ZzzZzzZzz...

    So anyway 71 piles of wool later (That's all I can carry) I managed to get all but ONE sheep to spawn black! I think Yew Sheep Pen has to have at least one odd sheep in the bunch ;)

    Anyway, on to my request @Kyronix
    Cotton, when spun, produces spools of thread, which stack quite nicely in my backpack...

    Wool, when spun, produces balls of yarn, which do NOT stack quite nicely in my backpack...

    So after spinning 30 piles of wool, I now have to take each individual stack of 3 balls of yarn and put it into a container so they stack...

    Is there any way that you can make them stack inside your pack as your spinning? PLEASE??? bats eyes

    Larisa, if you have your wool-collector start the quest with Laifem the Weaver in Ter Mur, you'll also get "Britannian Wool" when you shear the sheep.

    @Larisa - if using CC and UO Assist, setup an organizer bag. Add the yarn to it and kick-start the organizer. One stack of yarn right quick.

    And I too like using the Yew pens as the wool-gathering spot!

    I thought with ROT you don't need to macro stuff like that. Just make a few items every X amount of minutes.
