    Its been a while since i lastplayed. Thinking about reactivationg just to try out the new Thunting thing a friend was talking about. Would be cool if anyone of you could answer some questions.
    So what kind of template do you need to solo the top tier maps now days? Is level 6 still the highest tier map?
    Someone told me the SoA's could drop from chests now. Is that correct?
    Would my old template still cut it?

    120 Taming
    120 Vet
    120 Lore
    120 Magery
    120 Eval
    100 Cart/lock

    I think i have everysingle skill in game trained so i guess what im after is the most efficient template there is. I know that i used a bard template for maps before i left but im not sure if that still works.

    Thanks in advance gal's and bro's.

    Most of your questions can be answered by reading here:
    Treasure Map Quests
    Though we are still updating for level 7 chests as more is discovered about them.

    I'm pretty sure that template would still work oki. My hubby uses a disco bard, I can dig up to level 5 with nothing more than a mage, summoning earth eles and EVs - no eval at that!

    tamer can solo all the maps pretty easily with a greater dragon.

    when you have multiple ancient wyrms then try luring 1 off a bit at a time. he does pop back to chest but usually will walk back to you.

    Hello Zidjin, long time no see...

    I solo all level maps with 110 Taming/Lore, GM Vet/Magery/Mining/Lockpicking/Cartography.

    I just let a greater dragon do my dirty work ;)

    I'm sure there's even more efficient templates out there, but it's working for me...

    Yeha Long time no see. Glad to see that you found your way back mate :)
    Ive been patching for 4 hours stright and still aint done... Getting frustrating.

    I wonder how many of my hard earned skills got lost when my houses went IDOC. I know for sure that my taming is stil there though, all that matter right ;)

    You still on europa?

    Yep, still on Europa, and still nuts about t-hunting ;)

    They've added some fun stuff to chests, but don't expect great chest loot. Item properties / weight seems to have taken a nose dive after the patch. Best to train Imbuing on a different character and use the magic items for gathering Magical Residue and Enchanted Essence... :)

    lol someone just told me that they got their hand on some of my soulstone when my house collapsed. They however seems to have lost them cause they cant find them... 120 Discord, 100 lockpicking and 100 poisoning gone *poof*.

    I dont use poisoning so that doesnt really matter, the lockpicking is quite easy to train with alacritys and SoT's so thats okey to. 120 Discord how ever sucks major balls to have to train again. Probably the worst skill there is to train :(

    So this rumor about Alacritys in Treasure chests, is that true?

    Maybe i could come with you and do a Tmap or two if i ever get the patches done?

    Best regards

    Yes, there are alacrity scrolls in t-chests. T-maps have changed to random spots and can be found for different facets. All t-chests however have the chance for alacrity scrolls, level 1 to 7...

    Only Felucca t-chests contain transcendance scrolls, and these will always be for 0.5 skill. I haven't found any SoT's in chests lower than level 4 though, and there isn't really any reliable source for Felucca maps. There's Khaldun puzzle chests that contains maps, but I've never found any maps higher than level 3 in there, and there's the Hag's quest, but they never seem to go up beyond level 4...

    Paragon chests contain random facet maps, so basically if you go kill Miasma for a while, chances are you'll end up with a few level 6 maps for Fel, but it's random, so no saying how long it'll take you to obtain Fel maps. Could also just hunt level 4/5 maps giving monsters in Fel, but again, that's random...

    I think I still have you listed on ICQ, I can give you a couple of disco alacrity scrolls if you want to retrain that skill, but I won't be online a whole lot through the week though. Long workdays / long travel time leaves me not a whole lot of playtime except for weekends. That's when I do most of my hunting :)

    Reading all this makes me reallly happy! Many of the changes they made to treasurehunting has been pruposed by me and several others for years. Really nice to see the changes go live(Better late tne never right?^^).

    I havnt used ICQ for a year or so but i will make sure to log on as soon as i get my problem with the pathing solved. Patched for several hours now and still aint done. Something is wrong but i just dont know what.
    Will probably have to wait untill the weekend before i cant get some free time to resolve this.

    Thanks for the good info Lebaiton!

    I think, if you download a more recent classic client, that the patching won't take that long. Will have a look to see if I can find a download link...

    Found one, it's on the official Mythic / UO Herald website: Ultima Online Client Downloads | Mythic Entertainment | Ultima Online

    Try and download that and then patch, it should be a pretty recent build :)

    Oh might give that a go! I donwloaded the client at: Utlima Online - Mondain's Legacy


    Btw since im allready posting could i get any feedback on how the bard templates handle level 6-7 Tmaps?
    Might kick some life into the bard forum as well and see if they can give me some information.

    The Lebaiton, will try you link when i get home!

    Best Regards

    Cartography was easier to gain then i remembered. 2 Hours of training took med from 28.2 - 80.3 . In this tempo i will GM it in about 2 or 3 more hours :)

    I hope lockpicking goes as fast!

    My Template Consists of this

    110 Magery
    120 Mysticism
    120 Spellweaving
    120 Focus
    100 Eval
    100 Lock Picking
    100 Mining

    I decode about 80 maps at a time, then stone off my cartography for my Mining.

    This is a great all around template for many things. Not just tmaps. I stone off my mining for fishing when i want to fish. I can throw on my luck suit for mining saltpeter when i need more, I can stone off LP and mining and throw on alchy and resist for fighting elsewheres. VERY flexible and easily changeable template for many uses.


    As far as maps goes, easily solos 1-6 maps. As far as 7s goes, ive had no problems except for the illeshner spawns that pop a renegade changeling (i hate those frickers).

    good luck
