    Looting with a new mage in the tomb kings entrance where undead guardians and silver serpents spawn, I keep seeing labels showing piles of gold and other loot but can't pick them up (like three piles of 60,000 gold). I never bothered to pay attention to the stuff on the floor before when I ran past. Can somebody tell me what that's all about? Thanks

    Are you using the EC? Sometimes you see ghosts of objects, such as piles of gold in your bank box or mobs from other dungeons. Could that be it?

    What I've read is that if you don't say the Ord Anord passwords a monster spawns which weighs you down with huge piles of gold so you go over your weight limit and can't run, but the gold piles aren't actually gold because it turns to sand when you try to move it. So the gold pile thing is just something to kill the person who didn't say the passwords. I think that's where you get the sand that's labeled treasure sand. The ones you can't pick up I think is just deco around the tomb tho.

    If one does not deactivate the energy fields by saying the 2 passwords (Ord and Anord), how can they go past them and actually enter the area of the Tombs of Kings with the monsters ?

    You can go the back way from the teleporter houses or through the underworld and travel across the abyss to get to the entrance of the Tomb of Kings, super long way to do that tho but it'd be possible I guess. But I think if you go through the underworld to get to the abyss you've got to do a harder quest then the one at the shrine of singularity (I think it's called). I've never experienced the monster but I'm not taking a chance on not saying the passwords either lol. I'm new to the Stygian dungeons so I'm still learning and reading it all. But i know from experience that when you say the passwords and go past the barriers that after a bit they automatically go back up, so I've had to recall out if I didn't want to continue forward.

    I think you do not need to recall out, even if the barriers go back up.... if I recall correctly, towards the end of the hallway before one actually gets down to the Stygian Abyss, to the left side is a teleporting tile which automatically brings one back to the entrance end of the Tomb of Kings, inside, before the energy barriers.

    I think I found it out as a Ghost, when coming out dead from the Stygian Abyss that side, in order to get to the Village to get ressed I had to step on that teleporter tile to get past the barriers.

    I don't know where you found this information, but it is totally inaccurate.
    I suggest you read here: http://uo2.stratics.com/questing/egwexem-and-naxatilor
    Where you will find the instruction
    together with an image illustrating this action.

    The sand you mentioned comes from Niporailem The Thief a mini-boss encounter reached by a secret doorway from the Tomb of Kings, not related in any way to accessing or leaving the tomb itself.

    Quite often you will see that stuff when someone is fighting Niporailem The Theif. You see it below the chamber where the Silver Serpents spawn. Near Where Petra has a picture of. Often what you are seeing is stuff down there left on the ground by someone fighting him and it's under where you are so when you control shift you see the object handles of that stuff up where you are.

    That sounds like it exactly - thanks, Mal, Venora and Petra - I never picked up that bit of lore before

    The Thief encounter may also play a role in what you see, but I am sure that what Winter speaks of is a part. When in that room I often see the Scroll of Valiant Commendation and two practice weapons which I know are from my bank box.

    Yes, these are the two areas that I remember the video ghosting occur. I can't recall if it happens anywhere else.

    Winter, Slayer of Bunnies - your theory sounds reasonable - many of the items on the floor do match stuff in my bank box. How ironic, trying to figure out a way to grab gold off the floor when it was actually in my own bank box. Weird. Maybe Pinco's new client will fix stuff like this. :lame:

    I tried looking back in my history, but it's a mass of pages from google search, uoguide, stratics and others so no telling where I read it exactly sorry. Only thing I can think of that most of what I find from sites I've had to piece things together from more than a few pages to figure things out since the sites are hard to find things through their search engines, especially when a person has has no idea of the exact keywords or terms to use because it's all new. Well at least new to me, which is why I try to look up stuff and try to understand things from the help chat. Only page I found that mentions the gold turning to dust was this: http://www.aschulze.net/ultima/guide/termur_dungeon_tomb.htm so I might have interpreted it as being a guardian that hinders those that don't say the correct passwords with gold that turns to dust lol.

    As for the leaving of the area I never knew about that till I mentioned it in my 2nd post and got a reply from Popps. But I'm glad that you were able to set things straight and had a good link too! :D I never saw that link with all my searching but I wasn't looking for specific names either since I never did those quests to get into the area. I'm just glad that overall Yadd finally got his answer along with more support and weight for that answer from others too! Thanks again! :)

    :) Whenever you are unsure of search criteria, please feel free to ask on the boards. I know the Stratics site intimately and will endeavour to point you in the right direction whenever I can.

    Thanks, I appreciate it! :D For awhile my biggest thing I was looking for was what monsters were where inside the Abyss and Underworld, but couldn't find. So I killed myself and ran around as a ghost and got a general idea for the areas and marked them on the EC map. Then afterward I found a map of the Abyss area with spawn marked on it while looking up how to get imbuing resources lol. It's a good idea you have to ask about search words on the forums tho, thanks! :)
