Help needed with some questions.

Discussion in 'UO Catskills' started by Gideon Catskills, Feb 18, 2008.

  1. Hello,
    I'm somewhat new to UO (only been playing about 7 months) and I have worked my way up to the point where i feel comfortable to do some hunting, and had some questions. They are for the most part general I have no idea if this is the proper place to post and if it is'nt I shall happly post in a differnt area. But i figured who best to ask but my fellow Catskills citizens.

    Firstly as i hunt i dont know what items are worth keeping for myself or to sell. So what would you guys/gals suggest on keepworthy stats for an item, ( i have a mage but i would like make a warrior at somepoint ) mind you im not hunting anything special but there is always an outside change that I might get something nice, and it would be nice to know it when i see it [​IMG]

    Second is, once i know what makes a good item and i cant use or dont want, how will i know how much to sell it for or try to sell it for? Is there a rule of thumb to help me?

    Third what are Virtue Armor sets? I was in Shame and got a msg about my virtue and an item was placed in my backpack something to the effect Helm of Spiritualy where might i find the rest of the set? and how hard would it been to finish off the set?

    And lastly now that im hunting more im seeing items with fast cast and i was wondering if there was a Cap to how much fast cast you can have and, if it is possable to find a shield with Fast cast and spellchanneling?

    Thank you for your time and again if this is the wrong place im sorry I will be happy to move it

  2. 1) That is a wide range there. For armor, I never keep anything under 52 resists or 17LRC. Weapons is a whole other monster due to the amount of mods it can have and the type of weapon.

    2) For selling, there is a great guide posted in the smith area of the professions forum. It's stickied so not difficult to find. Again, weapons are a bit more difficult. Best bet is to look around and see what everyone else is pricing.

    3) The virtue armor set is an 8 piece armor set you can get from fighting monsters in the anti-virtue dungeons as well as getting some other special artifacts. You can also get two pieces of the armor set from Heritage tokens (helm, gauntlet) and there was once another way to get the cape, but I'm unsure if it was fixed after the invasion of Magencia or not. You can still get it from wacking monsters in the anti-virtue dungeons though.

    4) The cap for mages is 2fc/6fcr. It's more for Paladins I believe. There are spell channeling shields out there, but it's rare to find one without negative mage skill or negative fc (except for a few artifacts).

    Is Shame or Deciet a "anti-vitrue" dungeon? Is there a list of which ones are?

    Deceit is, shame is ...and yes there is a list someplace.....

    but you don't need it...think virtues...then think anti
    Any dungeon with a name that is opposite a virtue is probably an anti virtue dungeon.

    Deceit, despair, covetous, shame, despise...are

    Wind, ice, fire, doom...Nothing to do with virtues

  5. Thanks for the info! One last thing what does 2/6 mean?
     
  6. 2/6 usually stands for +2 faster casting / +6 faster casting recovery, which is the caps for magery/necro. Chiv caps at 4/6 unless you have magery over 80, I believe.

    The Cloak is the only piece of the Virtue Armor Set that has to be obtained through a quest. Cloak

    Compassion -&gt; Despise
    Honesty -&gt; Deceit
    Honor -&gt; Shame
    Humility -&gt; Pride (no such dungeon in UO, but sometimes Hythloth has been referred to as an opposite to Humility in addition to Spirituality)
    Justice -&gt; Wrong
    Sacrifice -&gt; Covetous
    Spirituality -&gt; Hythloth
    Valor -&gt; Destard
