    I went through over 200k in ins and 5 black rocks NO CLOAK

    They need to turn off the daemon spawn or turn it way down...

    I did not find out how to get them until last night, come-on dev give us a chance.

    Run. Tell every one in the zone Shadow lord is around.
    Wait for them to earn your cloak.

    But I thought the top 3 damagers got a cloak. If that's true, then the hit-and-run method works for one cloak - and there should be two more, for the next two high damagers?

    So cry some more add the final straw quit and make the rest of us happy.

    I have about had it with whining people who cry about not getting their share. Do the work and you will get the things you want slack off and you miss out.

    I have had it with people who say they CAN'T get something because that is a load of crap. Can't means you are not putting in the effort required simple as that.

    I don't use a tamer I use either a dexxer or mage and depending on the situation either character has what it takes to earn me the good stuff so long as I put fourth a little bit of effort. Why do others say they can't do the same?

    And yes I went through around 1m in insurance since this started so I have also paid my dues in that department and I am not complaining about it one bit because I have something to show for that.

    HA did I ever say I didn't get anything? Did you see me say ONCE that I'm upset because I didn't get anything? I have gotten 4 cloaks and gave 3 away...I have threads and swords and shields.....

    I am saying people are complaining because they can't be lazy....hit it once with the blackrock then run away and wait for someone else to kill it so YOU can get a cloak???? That's lazy and self-centered and greedy...it's people like THAT that make events like this NOT fun for most of us.

    Heck I just died about 8 MILLION times with 4 of my guildies trying to take a shadowlord down the RIGHT way, so lay off me okay?

    Perhaps there was a set limit on how many cloaks could be given out?

  20. seems you are really a great person. investing much to get what? pixxies! I appreciate peeps that invest much, but where it is worthy to invest much. UO is - well, for those that missed it at some point - a game. Not a science branch. If this game is not able to give all those less sophisticated peeps a fair share of what so ever, it misses its only reason why it should exist: being fun, first of all. And if you, sir, "invest" much in this game, then I suppose your choices are questionable.

    So........if you had blackrock, you saw the shadowlord first, and you knew what to do, you are telling me its unfair for that person to get a cloak?


    Using blackrock was what the event was all about! The first person, or first 3 to use blackrock DID their share of damage. It's not like they stole loot from someone. They just out damaged everyone else.

    Read um and weep.

    Everyone had a fair shot at it.

    Just becuase some people didn't save blackrock... its not the fault of those that did.

    Just because some people figgured out how to get the cloaks...its not their fault the game was coded that way.


    I'm really tired of all the whinners that think everyone should have access to EVERYTHING in the game. Some times in a game you are going to win, sometimes you lose. Where have we gone as a society where people think they are entitled to equal shares of everything?

    Why not just hand out robes to everyone who walks through the gate? You showed up, kudos - here is your robe.

    If that is the case, then where is the incentive to put forth effort.

    What do you think the level of play would be at the end of a sporting event if both teams got credit for a win irregardless of outcome?

    I'm tired of the handout mentality. Some people will win, some will not - get over it. IT IS A GAME. Everyone does not need a cloak to survive. We havent' even determined if these things have value.

    There are plenty of other events where I got nothing and I'm not whining about it. I don't have a Berzerker Scythe from any of those events. Oh well. I don't log into UO and cry tears on my keyboard about it. I wan't fortunately to get one.

    Acknowledge and move on.

    You are missing the point. You can't tell people, "like EA did", that the event would last a couple of weeks, and then, take away the main item that the event gives, just a few days later, with no warning at all?

    Some people did not have blackrock. They did not cry, they went to work to get it. There was a purpose for it. They now have wasted their time, and there is no purpose for it?

    How would you feel is there was a turn in for, "Practice Weapons", i still have mine, and we got a 2nd house for them? What if there was a turn in for anything that most players had, and was worthless, and now is suddenly valuable?

    We will have a turn in event for 2 weeks. However, without any warning, the reward items will be taken away after a few days. You can still turn them in, but you get nothing? hehehe

    In the sales world there is a term for this, it is called, "Bait &amp; switch". :)
