    How much magery do you need to cast Mass Dispel 95-100% (preferably 100% lol) of the time? I know that at 120 magery it's your best bet but I am working with only 69 magery and trying to see if I could get by with throwing on a crystaline or if I need more then 89 magery to cast it almost every time. Reason I say 69 is because thats the lowest you can have for 4/6 casting with chivalry. This template i've been running with spellweaving i'm trying to see how much extra to magery pieces I am going to need to carry to dispel pixies whenever i feel like it.

    Minimumskill for Mass Dispel is 67.
    To cast it 100% you should need 40 Skill above the minimum.
    That would make it 107 Magery.

    I dont want to ruin your idea here, but I think its the modified skill that counts towards the FC. Meaning any Skillbonus that will take you over the mark, will reduce your FC to 2.
    You could just try using scrolls instead of the actual spell.
    According to intel provided by uoguide, using a scroll requires the same skill as a spell 2 circles lower. So instead of 7th circle, the requirement that counts is same as 5th circle. Minimum for 5th is 38 magery -> for 100% with scroll you need 78.
    Now as you have to stay below the mark, I guess that leaves you with a success chance of roughly 88-90% using a scroll.
    Assuming I am correct with my thoughts.

    However, the solution for your problem might be too easy for you to recognise.
    Your template leaves you with quite a few good options for a summons problem :thumbup:

    I know, since I am running something like that aswell :thumbup1:
    Just think about it and check all your charakters abilities.

    You can use this to calculate casting success: UO Stratics - Magic: Magery

    Magery spells cast via a scroll count as 2 circles lower (only magery scrolls work this way). Scrolls only get used up when the spell is successfully cast.

    Since you are running Chivalry, can you use Dispel Evil instead?

    Exactly :)

    Dispel Evil
    Holy Light
    Thunderstorm
    Conflag/Explo Pot (depending on the situation)
    Area-dmg weapon
    Whirlwind

    to name a few options.

    no dispel evil only dispels other players summons, I have NEVER had it dispel my own... I am glad it works that way in a sense thatif another person were comming up to me and i had to dispel there summon it would leave mine alone. I wish they would implement a command though specifically for summoned creatures to RELEASE ALL SUMMONS because single clicking each pixie to release is RIDICULOUS.

    Pixies can be released by calling their names together with the keyword 'release'.

    Examples:
    • Iril release
    • Dan123The123Man release

    I have seen people make UO macroes in the client which calls out all possible pixie names with the release command. A lot of spamming with just one key press. I don't have a list at hand, the pixie spawn in the Stygian Abyss dungeon might help you compile a list fast. Or just cast summon pixie.

    yes I know this, but since pixies have ALL Random names everytime you summon them... You have to say that for all four pixies seperately? No thanks, there should be something to say that will release all four of them. The way it works when you summon a pixie they have a random name so you cant set a macro to release them because you don't know which random name it will have at that time. So being able to release all of the summons at once would be a nice command to have. Example would be, "Release all summons" "All Release Summons" or something of that nature.

    does hit dispell on a bow actually work for pvp enemies summons ?
    i have a bow at 50%, the max i think and it takes forever and a day to actually dispell... or maybe it never does and it's a guildies spell that is dispelling the summons...

    you should be able to spam all the names just once and it will release all 4 pixies. On a side note, and more towards your original question, Use Mass dispell scrolls. And as someone mentioned it is modified skill. So if you have 69 real magery and add +20 skill items you will cast chiv spells at 2/6 again.

    it works, but 50% is the chance to proc....so its 50% chance each hit. Then take your actual chance to dispel the creature. (Only mass dispel has a 100% chance to dispel a summons each time, the normal dispel spell can fail.)

    what do you mean spam all of the names just once? If your talking about like

    jiji release

    neferi release

    avri release

    ect ect everytime... That's what I have to do already, i'm talking about a command that will release all of them without me having to go through the hastle of typing each and every one of there names out every single time. Meanwhile the enemy is running and getting away i'm stuck standing there typing <name> <release> :-/

    I mean just that, but have it set to a hotkey. You can look up the full list of possible Fairy names, and then set all of them to one key with "release" and just hit that key and viola.

    u know I never thought about that, I wonder how long it would actually take to say this in one macro lol:

    Klian release
    Klistra release
    Laeri release
    Ciline release
    Shiale release
    Ourie release
    Piepe release
    Liera release
    Sili release
    Sefi release
    Cynthe release
    Nedra release
    Hali release
    Jiki release
    Piku release
    Rael release
    Zanne release
    Zut release
    Sini release
    Os release
    Wienne release
    Xian release
    Ybri release
    Calee release
    Shendri release
    Shri release


    A total of 26 possible names according to UOGuide, I don't think you can make a macro that says all of that in one line of text, it has to be individual... So the entire macro would have to all of that... How long would it take to do that though lol... I'm at work atm so I can't test it to see how long it'd take to say all of that in one macro. Would you even put a pause inbetween using UOAssist or by Options in the game?

    Couldn't you just hit them with a weapon and kill them?

    Not really, you would lose about 200 karma per pixie and with chivalry being based upon karma that wouldn't go to well lol. By the end of the day you'd go from 20k positive karma to like 20k negative lol.

    Yes, that's what I meant, a macro that spams out all possible names. Sorry for the confusion, I am not a native speaker.

    Ah yah I forgot, I play mostly reds so I don't think about things such as karma or flagging criminal.

    You should be able to put a good portion of that on one line. Also if I was you I would do a test and and summon 4 pixies, put their names into a hotkey and then after all 4 names put "release", so like "Shri shendri Klian Klistra release" just like that. I am not sure if it works in the original client, but in the new client you can do it like that. (I never tried in the original client and I did try to summon pixies it told me I didn't do the quest on that character so I didn't bother.)
