I just really wanted to share my evening of playing UO with my "homeshard"... This goes out to "all my peeps" in Catskills. |/\|/\|/ Disclamer /|\/|\|/ = this post is mostly just me being a cry baby. Many of my friends know that I have started a new tamer. I looked up where to go to tame a forest ostard. One location suggested that they could be found in Ilshnar/Honor to the North. So, with my very, very weak, new tamer I headed off to Ilshnar/Honor, I headed North, past an Inn and found a dirt road, following it I soon came upon what would begin an evening of pure and total hatred of Ultima Online. Oh my, I thought to myself, a <font color="brown"> Lich Lord (Paragon) </font> I better run befo... too late, I died. Well, I know my new tamer is no match for this monster. But now its a little personal, since I witnessed it "rummaging through my pack and taking an item". Which was kinda strange, since I carry almost nothing on me except for like, 20 bandages...the few other items are insured or blessed. Oh yeah...I found a half way decent...no, strike that, a scimitar that has 20% lightning strike on it (whooo-peeee). No big deal, but still. This thing has to die. I sign in my tamer (Hagrid) and get my prefered pet (a reptalon) and head off to Ilshnar/Honor. This shouldn't be much of a fight, I thought to myself. I found the creature, standing over the body of my alt. I hopped off my pet, turned invis and let it begin to attack. Suddenly the creature revealed me, I cast invis, and watched my pets health drop. I began healing my Reptalon, as soon as I clicked my bandages the Lich started attacking me...death soon followed for me and my beloved pet. I love my Reptalon...I really do. Many reading this will despise me for saying this, but...I don't really like Cu-Sidhe's because it seems like everyone uses them. Well...I like to be the "odd-ball" I like being the underdog. I like taking the pet no-one else would have taken. I LOVE my reptalon. The vet players who were there for the release of ML may remember reading how in test center the DEV's lowered the paralyze attack on the Reptalon, along with the damage and amount of times that the Rep would shoot off fireballs, because it seemed to "overpower" the Cu-Sidhe. Wow...UO may look totally different if that disicion never happened. Any way...moving on.... I ran to Luna got rezzed, logged out (to "drag" my pets ghost) revived my Reptalons health and ran back to kill this son-of-a-b!#%h!!!! He killed me. Again...and again...and again. I repeated this for about ten times (ouch, there goes alllllll my gold in bank, insurance ya' know). Still, this monster had to die. Had to. Know the feeling? Please say yes? Now with all my gold used up, no more in bank for insurance I knew I had one more shot. So...much to my "disgust" (no offense to Cu lovers, I swear) I stabled my Reptalon, and pulled out my GM'd Cu-Sidhe. I ran to the battlefield, and indeed just me and my Cu-Sidhe, slayed the Lich Lord (Paragon) Now, I went to uo.stratics.com and checked out what it had to say about these monsters...Here, take a look -----> Lich Lord I will tell you this...I don't agree with what the comments are. This b*st*rd was MEAN. With my Cu-Sidhe, it took everything I had to survive the fight and emerge the victor of the battle. EVERYTHING I had in me...and my Cu-Sidhe. So, in the end...I got back my silly little scimitar. The beast had 1,850 gold on it and the following items: 1 Deer Mask Lower mana cost 6% Physical Resist 2% Fire Resist 6% Cold resist 14% Poison resist 1 % Energy resist 7% 1 Bow Hit lower defense 38% Physical damage 100% 1 Bladed Staff Hit chance increase 8% Fire damage 40% Cold damage 30% Energy Damage 30% 1 Scythe Spell Channeling Hit chance increase 8% Faster casting -1 Energy resist 10% Physical damage 100% 1 Pitchfork Hit stamina leech 22% Luck 37 Damage increase 13% Physical damage 100% 1 Bracelet Provocation +10 Strength Bonus 5 Faster Cast Recovery 1 Lower Mana Cost 6% Cold resist 10% 1 Bracelet Cold resist 13% 1 Mass curse scroll 1 Energy bolt scroll 1 "One of the best fireworks ever" 27 Batwing 35 Pig Iron And I got all of my bandages back that it looted off of me. So, in the end the gold came no where close to re-paying the amount of gold I spent on insurance. But I now have a better understanding of Lich Lord Paragons. But more importantly...it was about the principle of the matter...Right? I got revenge... REVENGE! On a stupid...little...computer generated monster.
