I almost found a good dexer weapon in Shame.

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Bort of Atlantic, Nov 26, 2011.

  1. Vicious War Fork of the Aegis

    Splintering 10%
    Hit Fireball 60%
    Hit Phys 60%
    Hit Lower Attack 60%
    Battle Lust
    HCI 15%
    DCI 20%
    Damage Increase 40%

    This looked great except for the following...
    Luck -100
    Brittle
    Cannot be Repaired
    Cursed
    ...so, worthless.

    Has anyone found anything to replace imbued weapons? I've looted a boatload of items and have found zero weapons or jewelry that I would want to replace my imbued pieces.

    The only weapon I've found would be for Mages, not melee:

    I have not yet found any keeper weapons that were not brittle, cursed or cannot repair (prolly a combo).

    Some jewels that are used on alts so far is all I've been able to find so far.

    1865 luck (2341ish luck for an hour everyday), blood ellies/poison/wind all day.

    I know this isn't a weapon, but it definitely falls in that "almost good" category:

    I think I'll keep it just for the name on it. LOL

    @ Tina: The hat's name does have a fun ring to it, to bad it cannot be enhanced to make it to 150. Drop the cursed and I could live with the brittle (since luck gear doesn't get hit much). Coulda replaced the Jester Luck hat replica from Vesper museum. Awesome resists but since im maxing luck, only 110 wont do.

    @ ahardy: Great mace for a scribe or training a mage skill that uses mana do to the MR9/SC/no -1. Other then that, I'd prolly unravel it.

    This is pretty much the whole story on New Shame. "I almost found something good, but it was hobbled by a horrifying litany of drawbacks so I unraveled it." The price of relic fragments is going to crater to a dime-a-dozen and then that's going to be it for the new loot system.

    Someone over there at UO HQ thought players would actually use/equip/trade items that were cursed, brittle, unrepairable, etcetera and they were wrong.

    Does splintering weapon kill the durability on the Kryss like it does with sword of shattered hopes?

    25% of your hits will result bleed special and -10 durability drop. And you cant repair it.

    Was this fixed a couple of patches ago. I thought I had read that they had fixed the durability loss when weapon proc went off.

    Tested it. 10 points of durability loss per splintering weapon proc. Kryss will have situational use, hammer pick will be dead very fast. Didnt know that it was still that expensive.

    It is until it gets nerfed. I'm making a concerted effort to gather as many relics as possible and worry about the holy grail items later. :thumbsup:

    I don't think it needs nerfing unless in regards to the unravel mats they produce.

    Another pass where the system was "tweaked" for less cursed/unrepairable/brittle would be nice though.

    Or a way put into the game to remove 1 of the negatives, such as w/ cursed, give us the ability to uncurse it with an item bless deed. Said item could then only be insured and another bless item deed could not be applied. A boss in one of these newly revised dungeons, like with shame crystal system, that will produce a "hardening powder" to remove brittle and possible another that would drop "maleable steel" persay, that would correct the cannot be repaired debuff. If an item has cursed and brittle, can only remove one with the new items. So if you removed the cursed, the brittle debuff would always have to remain.

    I'd love something like that.

    I hate to say this but I think things would be overpowered if to many of the negative properties could be removed. I am in favor of cursed being forever. It will give something for pvpers to fight over and encourage team work because unless your spawning you should be able to get it back if your rezed. It also makes items (at least some) temporary again which I like.

    Best pull I've seen:

    Vicious kryss of Aegis
    Splintering weapon 10%
    Hit harm 40%
    Hit lower attack 70%
    Luck -100
    Hit chance increase 20%
    Defense chance increase 15%
    Damage increase 20%

    No cursed, brittle, or cannot be repaired.

    How about them apples?

    I just wish it was more common to get a clean weapon with less powerful mods. Right now the default seems to be to increase power with crippling deficiencies. I think the default should be less powerful and clean first.

    I have 20 mannequins equipped with 50 legendary arti dexxor suits and another 20 with legendary mage suits, all have insanely crazy mods but all items are also cursed, brittle and/or CBR - big deal! If my body decyas before i can reclaim gear or if the items break, I simply replace them! the artis that don't make the cut, become relic frags. I have no problem whatsoever with cursed, brittle or CBR items:)

    I found a vampiric war mace the other day. By far not the best or greatest but it is such a leech I had to throw it in a chest for now.
    Hit Physical area 20%
    Hit stamina leech 40%
    Hit mana leech 100%
    Hit life leech 100%
    Stam Reg 3

    And yes of course it is brittle and cursed :rolleyes:

    Not sure what most of you are doing wrong but I have pulled out more then a few very nice weapons & jewels.

    War Fork - 20 splinter,50 hld,100% durability,4 dex or stam(cant remember which)and 30 damage. I sold it within hours for 100 million back when splinter was very hot. Not a bad deal for either as that high durability is huge with splinter effect. The weapon of course was not cursed or brittle.
    Butcher Knife - 20 splinter,20 lightning,15 hci,30 damage,40 hit area. Also not cursed or brittle. Turned down 100 million on that baby and my son broke it a couple weeks later lol.
    Bracelet - 10 ssi,35 pots,8 dex,5 stam. Not cursed and no -luck. imbued on 15 dci and am currently wearing it on a pvp garg. makes a killer temp with so much pots on 1 piece.
    Ring - 10 ssi,10 dex,3 stam. also clean and currently on floor of my house awaiting imbue.
    Bracelet - 10 ssi,8 dex,5 stam. also totally clean. friend looted it from shame also and sold it to me. imbued 25 pots and 15 hci and am currently using it on a pvp char.
    Garg Ring - 10 ssi,25 damage,15 hci,15 dci,100 luck,clean. bought this one but pretty sure it was also from shame.
    Many other items not quite as good but still very nice.
    Shame can be mindlessly boring but you will definitely get some elite items if you put in the time on the right char/suit.

    Most of the decent items I've kept were before they broke the loot generator and the fix didn't really change anything either. I still have items from before the breaking that I haven't seen since, items with only one of these mods, 150 luck, MR4, DCI or HCI 20, EP 30. As far as weapons go if I found a weapon i could use I would use it. But I've yet to pull a single sampire usable weapon from shame. Armor the same thing I've yet to pull anything that can replace my imbued / enhanced woodland. Cursed or uncursed. And yes I've spent significant time in Shame with and without luck killing everything that can be killed in there.

    It takes time to find decent pieces. I find that decent Lesser Artifact items can be obtained on a semi regular basis even after the nerf and the stats on them can be better than reforged\imbued armor.

    Here are a few high end armor (I need to get better with rng when it comes to getting the right properties hehe)

    These are obtained post loot nerf after the latest minor bump that happened awhile back. They are all obtained on different days. Noticed that the resist property distribution bonus are identical....... I wonder why seems to be an observable pattern?

    What they're doing wrong is commenting on a thread that started in Nov 2011. I find it hard to believe anyone could spend much time down there over the months and not pull at least a few weapons, armors, jewels they considered great.
