    Remove them please!

    Either remove them, or make it so you can only have one per hour. As is, people just get the sword and one hit kill one person then run and get another.

    Lame is the only way to describe it.

    Yet another example of how out of touch Cal is with UO.
     
  5. They need a cool down ,, but in the mean time try using pixies to break them.. I have not tried the shadow images work on them.

    I refuse to base my play style around such stupidity. I won't be playing the shard again until these are REMOVED. Cool down is not going to cut it. There is simply nothing worse than being completely defenseless, especially when you lose everything you have. Dumbest thing I have EVER seen in UO...and that's really saying something. Yet again, way to ruin a good thing...keep up the bad work! :thumbup1:

    Doesn't removing the Bleed effect with Bandages end the forced Sleep / Slow Move that Splintering causes? Even worst case scenario your Talking 40% chance to have Splintering go off if they are 120 ninja & using Focus Att. Granted in any sort of Group combat I'd say it's definately nasty for a Mage (Bleed + slow + Can't Bandage) but the weapon only has What 25 Splintering Attacks b4 needing to be FixxeD? Just sit on a para field if your a mage & be lame etc... 1 full scribe myst mage dump... (Exp / plague / Hailstrom / Triggered Bombard) will kill just about any dexxer if they let you get it off......

    We're referring to the glass swords on Shard of the Dead...not the Sword of Shattered Hopes.

    This sword needs to go!

    Else whats the thrill of fighting in your best suit, when someone can just one hit kill you and take it.

    Agreed... These swords need to go, and of course imbuing... What's so hard about imbuing a suit? That's not hard........ This isn't even remotely close to classic UO. Whatever happened to hunting.. Now you can just unravel and imbue a suit, on this so called "Classic Shard"

    I found a flaw and im not surprised... The server states, "there are no item insurance or blessings". With that being said, the virtue suit is obtainable. So if someone gets the full suit, they'll have a blessed all 70's suit.. FIX IT DEVS!!

    I've only died to it once, and only used the sword once.

    If I'm fighting and I see a person run up rocking the sword i just bail. There's no point in trying to fight it, and I refuse to use it myself. Thus I wont be logging into the shard again until they are removed. Sucks too, my guild was prolly the first people to farm up enough gold for a house/guild. hehe, we were also prolly the first to be red on there too.

    I can't believe they thought full loot and one-shot kills went well together. That's the most disconnected from reality MMO design decision since Raph Koster and permadeath Jedi in SWG.

    Yeah, Its hard to believe how they make these ******** pvp choices over and over. I thought for sure they wouldnt be able to top the protection/cleansing winds combo. Guess they wanted a way for you to kill one of those guys LOL

    Devs, if you truly want to know what the player response to this shard would be, then remove the glass swords of shattering!

    At the very least put a limit or a timer on the quest.

    A limit or timer wouldn't help. All it would mean is that you'd get time to build up a even more super-duper suit before some newbie naked thief glass-swords you and takes it.

    Furthermore, even if you could only use it once per character, ever, people would just delete their newbie naked thief and make a new one.

    There are so many ways to abuse this item. It should just be removed. It does not encourage pvp, it will simply drive pvp'ers off the shard.

    These are really the most bone headed thing I've ever seen added to UO.
    :coco:

    They were cool in Ultima IV, but if you knew the bug (and everyone did), you could oneshot all the dragons and it was even used to kill Lord British. That was overpowerd and took away from the fun of the game, but it was a PvE game. Putting such a thing into a PvP game is coo-coo. :coco:

    Even if it was limited only to use in PvM, then people would use their newbie naked thief to oneshot the dark father, or dreadhorn, or the stygian dragon, or whatever. Those are supposed to be hard.
