Hunters Guide Out of date?

    I was poking around the hunters guide today, and I noticed that the entries for some of the champs must surely be wrong.

    For instance, the entry for Rikktor lists him as having only 3000 HP. Based on the number of times I hit him with AIs the other day (I average 170 per hit) I am pretty confident that he's got quite a bit more than 3k HP. I'd guess easily between 15 and 20k hp.

    Has anyone else noticed this to be the case for other monsters?

    Thank you for bringing this to our attention. I'm not sure when the hit points of the champions was upgraded but I have cross checked against two other resources ( http://www.uoguide.com/Rikktor and http://www12.atwiki.jp/uo88/pages/81.html ) and confirmed that while our figures were still those of the original UO Bestiary ( http://uo.stratics.com/uoherald/guide/beastiary.php?beastiaryId=261 ) the other resources gave substantially different figures for HP. I have now updated the relevant pages.

    keeping the hunters guide up must be a colossal undertaking but ya since I return I have noticed that many parts haven't been updated. Skree and Raptor for example aren't in either the monster or tamable list, but are searchable. Peerless named creatures and bosses lack all useful information. Some of my tamed pets exceed maximums listed as well.

    :( Sorry. I am unable to solo peerless and therefore have been unable to obtain figures for them. Additionally animal lore skill does not work on any 'human' mobs, so we have no way to obtain information on those. Years ago the pages were updated with the help of UO's own 'bestiary', but that is no longer the case. We are reliant on our own playing skills or contributions from other players.
    You'll find both Skree and Raptor listed under 'Stygian Abyss' on the right hand side. Both appear in the taming calculator page

    I am sorry Petra, I wasn't suggesting it was your job to get the information. Perhaps some of the Governors can plan events based on searching out and getting the information we are lacking.

    ah, but it is. I'm the UOSS ME, which means I'm responsible for updating the pages - and I have, as best I can. I like to think the uo.stratics site is in better condition now than when I took on the role. I don't think there are any spawning creatures that aren't included at all, but regarding those more difficult to access, any help would be much appreciated.
