I am the biggest idiot EVER!

  1. Hello All,

    Just thought I would share a recent experience detailing the incredible level of my stupidity. Well, I decided to obtain the Cloak of Humility so that I could complete my set of Virtue Armor Set. For those of you that don't know, in order to obtain the cloak you must complete a quest that is a real pain in the *%*$. The kicker is that your character can only attempt the quest once. So, after toiling through this very tedious quest over the course of about a week I finally made it to the end. I gave Gareth the iron chain necklace and then he offered me the Shield of Recognition. Of course, you are suppose to refuse this reward as this is a great sign of humility. However, I was in a hurry and without paying close enough attention I hit the accept reward button. I yelled NOOOOOOOOO!!!! as I realized this horrid mistake while depressing the mouse button. And wallah!!! I am now the proud owner of the Shield of Recognition. I had to repeat the entire quest with another character (it was not as bad the second time through) and I did eventually get the cloak of humility. But I am still traumatized by the whole affair. I suppose on the bright side, the Shield of Recognition is probably one of the rarest items in UO as I would gather that very few have ever opted to take it over the cloak. So anyone interested in obtaining a Shield of Recognition just let me know.

    Please your not the one who didnt lock down their ore chest full of colored ingots after they made the weight decay changes. Use to be that you could leave over weighted chest unlocked in your house without decaying. Well aftering my client crashed I wasnt worried about losing my chest cuz I had forgotten about the changes so needless to say I didnt try logging back in. Next Day when I logged back on it was all gone.

    I did something similar when moving from one home to another. I lost all of my colored bods, but my crappy iron 20s were fine sitting in my backpack....I was a bit peeved about all of that. hehe
