Giving it all away

Discussion in 'UHall' started by linko50, Aug 15, 2008.

    very soon i will be giving someone a few hundred mil, all my collections of the different suits, "none of which are complete".. like assasins suits and those type. my Luna house on baja, and my house on atl near umbra, and a ton of stuff collected over time, alltogether there is probably a little over a billion in stuff. I am quitting UO to go to WoW, where there is support and some sort of PvP that hasnt been totally gimped out..... they dont give you as many automated messages, and there is a ton of support agains exploits and a ton of ways to block hackers, and scammers.... only thing i dont know, is who i am giving it all to. I dont want to give itto someone who is allready wealthy, and i dont want to give it to someone brand new, because they will never learn to use it. I dont mind giving it to someone who sells it for in game wealth, just not for someone who will ebay it. and if one of the stratics people wants it to distribute in a fair, and just way, then i will consider that, as long as it isnt just to their friends or guild mates.... I thought about forming a scavenger hunt for the final prize, but i dont have the patience to set that up, i also would love to know what happens with it when it is all said and done...

    i guess my perfect person to give it to would find a way to Use it, to improve their gaming experience, without burning them out on allready having what all they need....

    *added* I would also love it if this were to go to improve someones life in FEL......... to liven things up there. That is where I feel this game origionated, and it has the closest ruleset i can relate to.

    i'll give you one hint...if you plan to pvp...roll Horde (they have better racials for pvp)...cause otherwise it will suck.

    lol, dermott, that is what i am afraid of, i get bored easily, that is the main reason i am giving it all away, if i still have it, i will never leave...

    Well, I've had two separate stints in WoW, both of them lasted for about that long. It's fun, but after about a years' worth of time, it just starts being the same thing over and over again with a very small amount of variation to work with when you get bored of doing a particular thing.

    However, since you are going, in terms of income for the game, I'll give you one piece of advice... resource gathering (particularly Herbalism and Mining) is the absolute BEST way to go. Forget actual crafting, just resource farm and play the auction house... you can't lose.

    Still though, it was fun for me... for about a year each time.

    I'm trying to start to get into PvP, on Great Lakes, don't have near enough money for the 120 scrolls I need on my mage and I have about 500k in insurance. :/ Have about 1.5 mil in gold on my account and have a few good PvM items, but that's about it.

    Do UO a favor. Sell all your good stuff and keep all the gold on your account. Take it out of the game with you. And if the game ever makes a switch to something better for you, you'll have it on your return.
    (Of course, it may not be worth much in a year or two. heh)

    Well hate to see you go , but if you have any stuff on LA I will take it and spread it out to the new players. Best of luck with WoW.

    See things like this make me sad.

    Cause these days you need to be a millionaire to be able to do some decent pvp.
    Cause you need 120 scrolls and arti gear.

    Back in the old days you could pvp , weither you were rich or poor...everyone could pvp.
    It required skill instead of gear and hax.

    I know, I have some decent gear, but it doesn't compare with anything other people have, and I don't have near enough skills. I wish I could compete like I could years ago, I played for a while after launch but had to close my account due to money problems, came back a while ago and have been scrambling to get what I need to be able to keep up.
     
  12. If I may ask...which house in Luna is the one you speak of and what sorts of old items do you have on Baja? I love to collect old items to display.

    Thanks and very sorry to see you go.

    Lady_Mina Guest

    The rumour is spreading that the prices of arti's will raise...because they will be harder to obtain....

    Nows it's only a rumour...but it could be true.

    So now is the time to get some decent gear...and then just cross your fingers and hope none of it is duped gear.

    It's going to be fun to read your responses as the thread grows. You do realize that you're slowly starting to grovel now right? At what point in the thread does the family member die? To the OP, we could all use more money and shinies, so if you have a character with hiding/stealth, just start walking around dropping stuff, but don't just do it at Luna bank, have some fun on your way out...

    I know exactly how you feel.

    While I am not headed back to WoW (been there done that) I have been getting rid of most my stuff so that I can shove everything into my bank boxes before I close my accounts.

    Every system of this game is over run with cheaters. I sometimes feel like I'm one of the only legit players left. Especially in PvP where I'd dare to wager 80% of the players are running some speed program combined with auto heal scripts and pot chugging scripts.

    Personally I'm pretty much done with online gaming. I rarely ever play anymore since I'd much rather hang out with my family and do things in life that actually matter.

    No, you didn't silence me with that response. Mainly because I don't believe you.

    linko50, give it to me man. I'll give all of my stuff away on LA, delete all of my characters there, and make newbs on Baja and carry on your good name. And I never left Felucca.I promise not to insure a single item once I make my newb and take ownership of your gifts. How's that for groveling? Difference is, mine's the troof.....

    I wouldn't mind the luna house at all, I'd turn it into a vendor outpost or maybe a little public park. Probably do vendors since Baja needs some help in that area right now. :thumbsup:

    Bingo... and according to the Devs, the next publish will have a RoT fix... so making a new character won't be so... mind numbing.

    a word or two.

    i have left UO three or four times, mostly angry over scams or lack of response when i needed assistance, that sort of the thing. The depth of immersion in UO is exceptional, if one chooses to exercise it. I have
    played probably six or eight other games, including WOW.....

    you probably guessed the rest of this......... don't get rid of everything quite yet..... give yourself six months or a year and see what happens.
    by then, you will know whether or not WOW bores you after a while, as it does many people......

    shame there isn't some way you could take all that wealth and put a little life back in fel..... it is so needed.

    best of luck, whichever way you go... :thumbsup:

    If you have any seer/event items on Atlantic, as well as any player/seer/em-written books, I always like displaying shard and cross-shard history. If you don't give them to me, then I'd recommend giving them to Halister Marner, as I believe he has a library of old books, and he has been trying to save some old Atlantic seer items lately, as well.

    And, of course, I certainly wouldn't object to donations of gold and other shiny things. =P

    for those who are saying i will come back, i have to say that that is a possibility, but i will not be keeping anything.... absolutely nothing, not even the newb daggar, because that is where the fun comes in, getting it.. not hording it......

    Added: That is only said speaking for me, i have horded for a long time, but the most fun i had was learning the game, and getting the items, never used them once i have them, so they are not even decorating anyhting.

    Yah I used to be really anti-Siege...but then about a week ago I finally started a character there....Went on my Guild on Chessy's forums and told them I was gonna be there until I get this character worked up and afterward it would be hit and miss with me on Chessy......Have to say it brings back a lot of good memories of years gone by seeing crafters have a use and thieves around every corner.
     
  43. well I really have no need for the houses on the two shards as I am very happy with my tower on Sonoma, but I would be happy to get a few items on Baja or Atl to equip charactors we have there. cash would also be helpful to those people on those shards as well.

    Agreed... i truly love some of the items i have, not because of gold value, but rather because of the memories. The nature of the game has changed, one has little chance now of acquiring unique items, as there are none being made right now..... so one cannot begin anew.

    Perhaps 'tis time to destroy the old towns that are almost never used....... let them decay as the inn in Delucia and the Pub in Rivendell........... perhaps someone who is aware of the histories of our cities could put up historical markers.... i.e., "Once a great museum was located here, (i am thinking of that fantastic museum that was on ice island).. A monument to those killed when the Orcs invaded cove, maybe?

    Sorry..... mind wandered there.... i hate to see the "old" times/things lost.......

    i love to play siege and have a char there, but the only problem is no house :(
    i have a house and chars on my main shard and i had a pvp guy in factions before aos but since i dont now because i dont have enough to buy all the expensive stuff i need.

    they should make you be able to have a house on a main shard and siege at the same time.
    this would let alot of pvp people have a pvp guy on siege.

    I agree with what Trebr said.... Though you may want to find a guild that helps newbs in NewHaven or something. Keep the gold on your account give away the houses and all to those in need.... pack up what you like and shut down the accounts....

    As for me I am on Great Lakes.... I do try to help newbs out... I also spend time in my local RP community... I don't Sell anything... If I don't use it or give it away I throw it away because it's garbage...

    But honestly I don't need more stuff. So..... keep the gold lose the stuff. Good luck.

    I play Baja and have exclusively since after Sonoma came out.....back since the old classic guilds like LoD and GoV. And I'm not quitting UO until they shut down the servers because this game still has the most potential of any MMO out right now or even in development. I have a site coming out soon that will deal with solving the issues UO is facing and the discussion of these ideas and I'm unusually optimistic about the game's chances.

    So all that to say, don't give away ALL your stuff cause you may be back. I don't need anything in the game......I have my perfect suit and a nice little house in moonglow and plenty of gold and not much else to buy. But if you want somebody who, for sure, won't unload the house or will even hold it for you, let me know....we have enough flaky Luna houses as it is. ;)
