Idea for fel

    Ok, so a couple months ago, some nefarious player robbed ol' milkbone's house and took a ton of our stuff to include all of our power scrolls (even the 115's) and his main pvp suit that, for some reason, was sitting in an unsecured box. Anyways, so, we don't really have lots of extra of anything, so we're down 1 dexxer suit. No problem, I can imbue more, but we need to get glad collar and a few other things. Whatever...

    So, while I've been working on this, I've been thinking. What if UO wasn't so item intensive? Ok, have to dismiss that because people have worked hard for their stuff. Then the idea morphed into "what if pvp wasn't so item intensive?" I think that might work! Here's my idea, let me know what you think.

    So, if the devs could program fel to have its own armor ruleset, I think pvp would become more enjoyable and user friendly. All players in fel would automatically have all 70s (like magic resist, but 70, not 44). All items would have 0 value EXCEPT the ring, brace, right & left hand. I have also been debating it, but I think everyone should be 100% LRC too along with 70s. But, with only 4 slots (with one open for pots) that makes people pick and choose how they want their guy set up. I mean, geez, with the crazy arties of today AND imbuing, you can make suits with mass SSI, 100 LRC, 40 LMC, 60 HCI, 60 DCI, 15 mana regen, 30 SDI, plus casting focus and damage eaters and more all on the same suit. It's crazy! With only the 4 slots (one used for pots, possibly) there is no way to make such crazy powerful suits.

    Ok, I have more to talk about with this, but I thought I'd ask Chessy what you think. I know UO Hall, but a lot of those dudes are weird and have messed up agendas. So, uh, what do you think?

    Its a nice idea but it sounds like it would be complicated to program. Maybe they should have everything defalt to no mods in fel and have fel almost like the old times. No LRC, no fancy suits, just old school skill styles. Of course that would likely kill more then a few temps but I think it could be fun.

    That was my first idea, but then I thought about the monsters in fel and if there were no slayers, no hci/dci, no sdi, or anything, champ spawns would be terribly hard to do, no bosses would get beat, etc. I thought with just a few mods, mobs would still be doable (though very much harder), but the end result would still be easy pvp suit creation.

    I was also thinking that you could make drops more common in fel since killing bosses would be a lot harder.

    Though it did just occur to me that doing this might make tamers super powerful (like they're not already) for pvp. Going to have to think on that one.

    Well it might do that, but then again you could do things like have bonding not work in fel. Also it would still get done it would just take a ton of people to do it which might be fun.

    Tread, good ideas!

    Mirt, it may be fun needing to have a ton of people to do those things but when you look at the population of some of the servers that wouldn't be able to happen so I don't think they would get done.

    You might be right sadly but they could still be done in the game. It might also encourage folks to try and schedule to do them but it might be hard to drop some things on the smaller shards.
