    Looking forward to it?

    In conjunction with the new content coming, I think I'd like to get white pearls and brilliant amber with my GM beggar this year.

    How about you?

    *puts on scruffiest rags and looks up at wingdingthing gargoyle* "Please, might you donate a fragment relic to my tedious training of imbuing? Being a crafter, I will have difficulty in acquiring items that requires slaying creatures. Pretty please, with gargoyle cream pie on top?"

    Can't believe I'm saying this but Me Too :thumbsup:
     
  5. Sorry, I still want to tell people I am a beggar with a interactive statue. Tamers get to tell others they are GM by the pets they have. And everyone gets to show it with fame and karma. The time it takes to gain the skill. We don't even have a monster title display.

    I am not a grouch, just persistent. I think it comes natural from trying to gain skill.
     
  6. I want to be able to beg from Gargoyles.

    One good side for me not being able to upgrade my account just yet - I've gone from 0-72 begging in just under 3 days :D

    However, still feel like the kid that gets sick in summer and can't go to the beach with her friends... stuck inside looking forlorn and bored out of my mind :(

    is it just me or are there a lot less beggar training posts this year compared to the last few right before Halloween? perhaps everyone who wants a beggar for ToT'ing has already trained one up in years past

    ah well, I'm stuck in the midst of my grind to GM. mid 90's at the moment. I'm hoping to hit 100 before the festivities begin, but we'll see how that goes once the gains slow to the crawl I've read about in other threads

    in all the excitement of the past couple months completely forgot about beggar....... working him hard, and the elves are very generous, but not sure I'll make it for Halloween

    did manage to get two new-to-me items tonite, a fishing pole and little bottle of sake

    What the hell?!?! You got sake from traning? I've been GM for nearly a year and still haven't gotten that damn Sake!!!


    I WANT MY SAKE BOTTLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11111!!!11111!!ONE!

    Damn pointy ears. They're screwing with me. They think I'd rather have water and french bread instead of sake.

    :sad3: sorry, Black Sun, and don't mean to make you feel worse, but got that little bottle at just below 80 skill

    he's at 83 right now.... I'll post back here in a few days with his progress (and yes, going at it full force, which for me is about a 20 minute stretch at a time ;) )

    I don't know what I'm more upset about, not getting my sake yet, or having gotten a plate of cookies back in the mid 60's while training, and thinking I already had one and throwing them away.

    I've got one of every begging "rare" except for the sake and the cookies. And yes, the wine bottles are always empty. I'm not positive, but I think you can fill them with anything you want.

    Ori, At first I thought that would make me feel better.
    Turns out it made me feel worse. I don't want to wait that long.

    Welp, finally GM'd earlier today, just in time! Didn't spend much time in Heartwood, although I did pick up a turnip yesterday. Bring on Halloween!

    Now all I gotta do is redecorate my house ...

    I remember the day I GM'd. I hired 6 npc fighters and took them to heart island so they couldn't run away, and I set up a macro to beg all 6 of them in a row. I spent the majority of a day out there to GM. I ended up with roughly 40k when I was done. All from begging.

    98.5 so far, after months of training wrong until I actually read the FAQ (doh). Trying for 0.5 a day, so should be there in time hopefully.

    Thanks!!


    I did the majority of my training in the Papua mage shop. Tons of NPC's all clustered together. I didn't really keep track of my earnings, but I think I made closer to 100k, all told

    Good luck to everyone else who's still training!

    Tram usually. I never thought to try fel.
    I did my traning on dot isle for the last stretch. Maybe 4 full points at most.

    OK, I may have been overdoing the training lately.

    GMd begging in my sleep last night. Not unattended macroing, cos a) that would be Bad, and b) wouldn't have a clue how, but in a very vivd *dream*. Even dreaming I was a bit suspicious that the last few gains were coming a bit fast (i.e. pretty much 0.1 per beg), but took them anyway, GMd (very pleased), then re-arranged the EC journal log thing and started up UO ScreenGrab to capture the moment.

    Woke up. Very disappointed *sigh*. Back in the real world, 99.0 and counting :(

    I hate when that happens.
    Once, I had a very vivid dream what I won a million dollars. Someone gave me the check, and I went up to my bedroom, put it in the middle desk drawer, and climbed in bed and went to sleep. As soon as I fell asleep in my dream, I woke up IRL and proceed to tear my desk apart looking for that check.

    That was the worst morning ever.

    That would indeed suck :sad4: Doesn't do your heart a lot of good either.

    Went back to the grind tho, and GMd properly this time. Roll on Halloween :spider:

    after my last report at 88.2 my good friend Uriah went out and found a bunch of begging SoT's which brought me up to 93.2, and for days I pretty much did nothing but train begging..... I guess he got a bit bored waiting for me to GM it, so when I was around 97.5 he went and found some more and those took me up over 99

    night before last my beggar went to Uriah's house, led him to the farmer's house in Skara and begged from Quincy the farmer there for his last gain :) and as I told him at the time, it matters not that some skills go over 100, getting to that number in any skill at all still gives me a little rush

    WTG, DevilsOwn! :D I've pretty much given up having it GM'd this year. Which is really pathetic considering I've been at it for over 2 years.

    Come on now. You can do it!!
    I started really pushing it after the Halloween event started last year. I managed to GM and get 3 webs before it ended.

    hmm... . . maybe I could rent him out ;)

    Someone made an off-hand comment in another thread to the effect that there is not going to be any trick or treating this year. Is this true? Have any rednames posted either way?

    Renting out Uriah? That makes it sound like you have him chained up in a closet and only bring him out when you need him for something.

    Now I don't feel so bad! J/K :D I have been working on it some, but got distracted trying to get a silly jack-o-lantern.
