    I just came back to UO after about 3 years. Today I was fighting some ettins when I received a message in the lower left corner saying something to the effect that I had received a reward for defeating a honorable enemy, or something like that. Anyways, what i received was an artifact in my backpack. I thought you could only get these from champ spawns. Has something changed?

    There are 4 kind of artifact drops now,

    1) From any anti virtue dungeon (shame, deciet despise, Hythloth etc) these are generally lower quality artifacts, however a few nice pieces may drop.

    2) Paragon "Artifact"/ML Artifacts, These come from fighting either peerless monsters or ML monsters(swoop). Generally useless but have got the totem of the void talisman.

    3)Doom Gauntlet, These are the generally high powered artifacts worth the big money (Armour of Fortune, Ornament of the magician etc)

    4) Replica Champ Spawn Drops, These are a new addition, about 2months old, they are semi-specific depending on champ and are replicas of old EM items.

    Hope that helps.

    I recommend the virtue dungeons in Fel as well if you are interested in these drops. Grab a charged back of sending and hit the easy spawns like lizardmen or harpies. Trust me I spent two days in Despise and never saw a red.

    Fel has better spawn and drops more resources as well.

    Honestly most of the virtue items are now over loading shards and most can be obtained for less then 100k

    Yes.

    But I still see them in pretty wide use.

    The one he got is one of the ones I see more often in actual use. It's basically a way to fill in resist gaps in suits.

    These items basically are made for people to use rather than sell.
