    Just aquick question, is anyone else getting Arti's out of Doom? I have done it quite abit now, and haven't had a drop for along time. Yes some have been in a group at times but mostly just two ppl doing Rooms and DF's. Yes I have some luck but not uber, but still I would have though by now something.

    I'm the wrong person to ask.

    I have never received a drop in Doom.

    Ever.

    Granted, until two weeks ago, I went a year without going to Doom (see my drop-record as to why), but I have gone around about a dozen times in the last two weeks and have found my record hasn't changed.

    *shrugs*
    Oh well, I'll get my Doom arties the old fashioned way. I'll buy them.
    (In the same time, people I hunted with have received arties, so I will go so far as to say it isn't broken)

    Last time I was in doom was long ago, but they had the auto drop thingy. You rack up enough points and an artie pops in your backpack.

    I've had times when I got 4 arties in one hour, and I've had times when I got only 1 arty after 4 hours.

    It's all real life luck, really.

    Keep camping and eventually you'll get one.

    I think it's a character thing.
    My tamer has never gotten one, even after they put in the "point" system. My macer has gotten around 30. My bard mage 5.

    To answer the OP doom is working fine on Catskills.

    I used to get a drop every third or fourth time around the gauntlet. Now, I get something once every few trips to Doom.
     
  7. Really? I got a drop 3 months after I first started playing UO. It was some blue bracelet. I can't remember what it was called.....:gee:


    Seriously, I've heard of this phenomenon, but haven't experienced it myself. Every character I've taken to Doom has managed at least a drop or 50.

    That would make sense. I only ever bring my archer down there and haven't tried any other characters (except for one circuit with my new Sampire).

    Maybe I should try taking someone else for a while.

    Interesting. I'd think your archer would be your best bet. I've gotten more drops with my ABC archer/weaver than with my archer/bard or sampire.

    Group of 13 of us were there last night in fact, odd coincidence lol. I got 3 drops on a Mystic/Mage/Weaver, minimal luck (140 plus luck statue for some of it lol). Another guild mate got 2 drops on a tamer with 1800ish luck, and another tamer got 1 drop with no luck. We had a Disco/Mystic/Mage/Weaver with us that got no drops with a 2200+ luck suit on. I had a level 6 Focus for Weaving so that helped a lot and I was getting the kill shot on a lot of things.

    I have got to say, RC + Demon Slayer Spellbook + Spellplague + Bombard + WoD = Bad day for the DF lol. I was getting some Spellplague hits at 220 per hit and it was hitting 4+ times, Bombard was doing 180 on most shots and WoD was hitting for 567 (all with Arcane Empowerment being used and 25 SDI).

    So I would say no, Doom is not broken.

    ROFL no, the Gauntlet, is not broken. I solo'd it with my Mystic Mage and got a Jackal's Collar off a DF last week. Also, you don't need luck anymore. It helps, but eventually, you get an arty either way.

    If your getting looting rights to the bosses and DF you will get a drop but it might take 3 hours+. The longest my ABC archer has went without a drop is about an hour he uses a demon/elemental double slayer jaka bow imbued with di and ssi. I hit df for 195-235 and critical hits are over 300. The only draw backs I have are blood oath and running out of arrows and bandies.
