Well, I've had the High Seas for a few days now. Frankley I wish I had not purchased the Booster pack at all and I will be VERY cynical before parting with any more money for the next Booster for UO. Yhy? Well, let me tell you... I want to start by saying that I was actually looking forward to this. So much so, that I changed all my crafting skills around on my characters so I could make the things I knew I needed. But here comes the bad... Ships, and cannons. First off, I do not have the patience to go mining or logging for the next year of my life just to get enough iron and wood for a five second fight on a ship. Saltpeter is too hard to get. Black Powder takes too long to make. So, because I do not enjoy mining and logging (who actually does?), that means I won't be able to look after my ship or get the rediculous amout of resources needed for what should be a fun outing. So after all that, I find that I have no will to go through all these hoops and would rather go and smack my head against a brick wall for an hour. Fishing. Well, at first this seemed like fun too. But after actually doing it I find yet more problems that turn it from an enjoyable experience into a frustrating and annoying waste of time. Why? Well, to start, lobster fishing is HORRIBLE! You have to buy traps and wait similar times to fishing BUT you can't DO anything with the crabs and lobsters after catching them! I can't even use the crappy ones to raise cooking like I do with fishstakes. And then the ones you need for the quests are so rare that getting 15 of them is probably going to take you something like 5 hours playtime -- just for ONE quest! Even worse, the improvements to MIB's have not materalised. So what am I actually doing these quests for? To get a 120 Fishing powerscroll? If I get a PS, what can I do with my 120 fishing? Only make those fish pies? A pie that takes 5 hours of fishing to get the ingredients and gives me 3 mana regen for 2 seconds? WHAT!? Why would ANYBODY bother???? The last straw... This morning I fully intended going fishing. I recalled to my ship to find it completely blocked in Papua docks. I cannot redock my ship because I am half way through a fishing quest and I would have to throw hours of hard fishing away just to quit the quest and start again. So I call a GM, and they refuse to unblock my ship! All they did was send me a link to the web page telling me how to operate my ship. Useless! So now I cannot continue with my fishing quests until some random person decideds to move his ship! So I am UNABLE to play the only addition to UO that I like (fishing quests) and payed 30$ for! What a waste of money!
