    Hello dear devs. There are such items still exist for some reason in this good game, called invis items and tele items. Lets speak about it.
    Invis items = u press them with macro in backpack and u invised immideatly, like it's not smoke bomb or sth, there is no cooldown on it.
    Tele items = same here but u tele
    Why these ****ty items still exist in the game and ruin pvp balanace. I know dear devs u don 't really care but.
    pls aattention, a lot of these **** got duped recently, and many bad players abuse it. It's really annoying to play against this. Deal with it somehow.

    Not sure about the dupe, but I agree that these items need to be taken out of the game.

    So you know for a FACT that this stuff is duped or are you just guessing. Did you report it to UO, of course not. So I guess because I have truck loads of this stuff from way back when that it is all duped and you will call me a cheater for using it. How the hell did PvPers ever PvP when this stuff was still spawning, damn I guess they came on here and whinned. Oh and here is hoping that all your rares go POOF in the middle of the night.

    Um, back then you had to equip them for the charges to work. Now you only have to double click it.

    Simple fix so you keep your "rares". Revert them to having to be equipped to use.

    I have a bunch from 15 years ago. Hundreds of charges. I've been waiting for them to become valuable enough to sell.

    I have tons as well. I've collected them for years and saved my stockpiles from when they were spawning.
    I keep the inviso items on my dexers for when douchbags lure spawn on me. *POOF* I'm gone and
    their stupid luring back fires. I only use them in PvM when someone lures spawn on me to try & chase
    me out of "their" area or "their" spawn. (ie, "Leave now, this is my spawn noob")

    The teleport rings you have NEVER had to equip. They have always been a click/target use item.

    Originally there were 2 kinds of inviso spawning items. Normal charged Inviso items - all spawning magic
    items could spawn with inviso charges. These must be equip to function. These have high number of charges.
    I have some in my collection with 199 charges. Some spawned with much less but it depended on the monster
    fame/karma and your RNG luck.

    2nd kind of inviso items were exclusively rings that worked kinda like teleport rings, click use items.
    There were no other spawning click or click/target items other than rings (teleport/inviso). Generally these
    click/target rings would only spawn with equal or less then 20 charges, I would assume so they were used up faster.
    @Old Vet Back Again to my knowledge, there has not been any change to these items for a revert to make a difference.

    I would argue more aggressive anti-duping measures be taken by Devs and hope anyone that knows of dupers
    report them
    . Don't punish old vets that have carefully collected these for years. If you have knowledge of mass
    duping of these items then please report the suspected individuals & let the GMs invisibly look through players
    backpacks. That's what they're supposed to get paid for anyway. I suggest, Delete any of these duped items
    (even tho I know folks will get mad over it).

    PS. Speaking of armor/clothes with charges - One thing I've asked for years is to make the weapons with charges (harm, weaken, feeblemind, curse, etc,..) worth clean up points just like the armor/clothing with charges. Currently you can throw away ringmail arms with 12 cunning charges for 5k points yet a sword with 27 feeblemind charges nets you like 9 points. Both spawned at exactly the same times and both stopped spawning exactly the same time.

    Collected many over my 15+ yrs. Dbl clicking the teleport ring has always been the way of using it like Acid said.

    I have stockpiles of these as well.... always have. Many old vets do.

    My guess is that someone found a stash of these after an IDOC.... and found out how awesome they are/were..... and they are using them.

    Now if infact someone is duping them and you have proof you should report it.... and if you are aware of a dupe then you should report it.

    Sounds like someone is jelly about his opponent being better than him with 1 single item........
    Maybe work around it, do remember they can invis but they cant stealth, not very useful IMO

    About the items being duped, well delete the duped items....
    I have also tons of clothes with invis and tele charges from years and years ago.....

    It's worth noting, you can only insta equip these if you're either using enhanced client, or cheating with classic client.

    Which is why I mainly use them(inviso) for PvM. In PvP (I only use the CC) using them is just not fast enough & there are better/faster ways to avoid death.

    In PvP I do :hahaha:LMFAO:hahaha: when going to Yew Moongate & waiting for noobs to hardfield me in. I just stand there looking skeered & confused:eek:o_O waiting for as many reds as possible to attack, right before clicking my teleport ring into the guard zone. Chug a heal pot quick while spamming (whispered of course so they never see it) my " GUARDS ! " macro. Makes me :banana::danceb: every damn time. So far my personal record is 5 reds and 1 blue all killed at once. It was like Christmas for all the blue gate huggers around, looting and all :owned:.

    I'm pretty sure you can use UOA for auto equipping.

    No..

    UOA works just fine to equip earrings, or boots, or a headpiece, etc.

    Let me know your character name and server and we'll see how much fun it is to die in guard zone without a chance to defend yourself :)

    If you haven't performed an action recently you can hit your dress macro to equip earrings as fast as a suit swap in the ec.

    I'm on Atlantic & Acid Rain is my PvP character name, go figure eh?;)
    I don't go around attacking folks that don't attack me.
    Nor do I enjoy killing players grossly under my skill level.
    I'm the sheep dog, not the sheep or the wolf :heart:.

    Most PvPers that hang at Yew can't say this so Yea, I'm gonna LMFAO when groups of them die :grin:.
    Don't attack folks 3-4 steps outside of guardzones (b/c you think ur invincible) & this will never happen to you :pie:.

    I read it just fine, I don't have any issues with it.

    Maybe you are doing it wrong

    As some others pointed out a lot of vets have these items still. One of my first characters was a fisherman as my connection back then barely allowed for craftsmen type chars. I still have two full chests of nothing but invis items and another chest or two of bless/ teleport items and that's the half I didn't turn in for points. When I dust off my thief char he uses a ring for a quick invis in high spawn areas so i still find them useful.

    I doubt they are being duped.

    Hello everyone,

    Please do not mention the names of illegal 3rd party programs on Stratics. Also, if someone does say the name of an illegal 3rd party program and you say it while replying to them, or quote their post we have to delete your post as well since it contains the same word.

    Thanks.
