    Does anyone know yet if you have to die in a cemetery to get a zombie with your name to spawn and do you have a better chance of getting bones if you kill your own zombie??

    Well I would show you but I haven't got one..they are bones with your name on it..some of them are colored. We have a tamer here going around with a dragon and she seems to be getting bones but no one else is. I just wondered if there is a trick to it.

    we have yet to figure out if you need to die make one. I did die but I died in the twisted weald working on Dreadhorn keys, I did not die in a cemetery. Someone else found and killed my my skeleton and was nice enough to announce it in general chat and leave the bone container on the ground for one of my guildies to run get for me. So you do not need to be the one to kill it. We're just going to have to work together like we did on the pumpkins and let the owner know when his or her bones are found.

    *waits for the inevitable whining thread and comments regarding having to die to get the bones because it effects their fame and how the Dev's should lock fame to where it does not decay*

    Yes, if you die 5 times, 5 of your zombie skeletons with your name appear in a graveyard anywhere in the world. Trammel/Felucca Also City of Death north of Delucia.

    Kill the named Zombie and loot its corpse. Not always one inside so might have to get killed a few times.

    In the name of science I still don't see zombies just "Skeleton Zombies" ;)
    And i guess your the one who uses the EC. I heard rumors someone used it but didn't believe them. If I were blind and played UO with my hands feeling the screen I would rock the EC

    This is not another boring debate of who uses EC client or not. I don't care who plays in 2D either and i don't comment on it. Play what you like.

    And they are zombie skeletons, stop nitpicking on things :p

    Aside from the bones, is there anything new that drops with this year's Halloween whether with the Trick or Treat or killing Skeletons/Zombies in the Graveyards ?

    Thanks.

    Well, perhaps players can exchange bones with each other ?

    If I get other players' names bones, and they have bones with my name on, we could trade them with each other and both end up with the bones in our respective names ?

    The only problem, is being able to find each other since not all players play at the same one time....

    The shards' Stratic Forums could certainly be of some help with players posting that they found bones of other players but not all players browse those forums. Same for the General Chat channel, not all players have it open when they play.

    By the way, did anyone figure out, when one dies, whether the skeleton that spawns with the player's name spawns in a graveyard on the same sub server where one has died or it could be on any graveyard anywhere?

    When you die and i mean everytime you die it will create a zombie skeleton. I died 12 times on purpose and it created 12 Zombie Skeletons and they all were in the Cemetary I was in. And yes anyone can kill it and get your bones.

    They can appear anywhere, i even had zombie skeletons in Felucca.

    I let a friend kill me 10 times in moonglow. My named skeletons are now everywhere on the shard. :)

    If i find someone else bone container i'm going to leave it in Luna for people to find.

    Think its a little different. If you die 1 time, one of your zombie skeleton appear anywhere. If you kill it, one new one with your name will spawn.

    But Frarc died 10 times, so i see his skeletons with several at a time in graveyards .And i already killed more then 10 of them. :)

    I just think there now 10 of them all the time anywhere.

    I missed this last year. I've been killing some named zombies at graveyards but think I need to die from reading this. Also what's the deal with the pumpkins in fields, just look for the large ones?!

    Yes you need to die (Even better several times) to get a zombie skeleton with your name in a graveyard or city of the death north of Delucia.


    A good tactic for pumpkin fields is to let a necromancers summoned minion suck up the pumpkins and release him when he is full ,this will remove the pumpkins and make room for new ones to spawn. If you see a big one click on it and kill it. :)

    My recollection from last year is every pumpkin that spawns has a chance to spawn an evil one. Trick is to keep them spawning by picking the regular ones and deleting them by putting them on a corpse to decay, or on a horde minion and then dispelling it.

    BUT I did get Maharia's...plain white but I'm happy! Larisa's are gonna be harder...she's red with no gear....I'm going to have to throw together a suit for her super fast lol

    It is a bit frustrating to get your own corpse, but I am grateful for something new.

    Anything new with trick or treating?

    I haven't even seen a killer pumpkin! Me and my little necro have been clearing out one field now for the past...half hour? Not one has spawned...*sighs* Nice mask though I really like the graphic on that one.

    we do need a better idea of where your skeletons spawn, if i go and die 10 times I would like to know with some idea as to the location of my skeleton zombies so I don't have to travel to all the graveyards to try and find my bones?
