    Ah didnt notice them. intriguing


    ah reread fiction,

    "Dream Serpent Scales, Hair of a Dryad Queen, Soulbinder's Tears, a Pristine Crystal Lotus, and the Heart of a Night Terror? And here I was hoping the last components might not be as difficult to obtain, given our lack of time."

    There is still one big area blocked in Ter Mur. I have the feeling the Dryad Queen is somewhere there.

    An excellent guess is that this NPC and the additional items, beyond that being used in the current quest

    Ritual - UOGuide, the Ultima Online encyclopedia

    will be used in phase 3.

    It's been a strange sort of scenario so far; not very immediate or in your face, really more a series of quests or quest chains.

    Now if they had gone the non-epic scenario route like I'd been suggesting, this'd be fine. If the quest was "help the Gargoyle Queen uncover lost history" or something. In fact that's the route it should have gone.

    But this is a quest/event that's epic in scope, again. Save Ter Mur from the Defiler. I would argue it should be more immediate. I'm at a loss as to suggest how to do such a thing without an invasion, though. And I think we're all pretty much loathe to suggest another invasion! Even though it'd be of Ter Mur instead of Britannia.

    Who knows, though, the next few parts could be different from this part.

    I'm still in the middle of the Ritual quest chain; got killed by the heart suckers or whatever they are called, due to a lag spike, and got discouraged. I will likely finish later tonight.

    So we can safely assume that Linzrom is not active yet?
    Finished the first 2 quests and Linzrom still being quiet :):)

    Well I was able to get the 2nd book but still havent been able to finish the first quest. Having a very hard time getting the very elusive gargish document "On the Void" for some reason. Did everyone have a hard time with that one? Would like to get started on the 3rd quest part soon if anyone has an extra on Atlantic they want to sell or trade??? :)

    The first 10 documents are the hardest of what i had to do. But it can be done alone(takes a lot of time) or with a few friends. I got several spare books on Drachenfels. I'm always ready to trade with the documents or help with the minions.

    On book 2 are the life stealers the hardest but they can be done alone with just Evs. You also don't have to finish book 1 to be able to do book 2.
    The lotus is a challenge but you got plenty of time to get it right.

    Now on book 3 and i have to deal with the night terrors. You do need to finish book 2 to be able to start book 3. Do a bit of research to answer the dryad queens questions. :)

    killed another (quest giver didnt work first days so item decayed). Turned in and its another book, decent read fiction wise but as of yet the books arent worth the fight. But doing all 3 parts might unlock something bigger later on, and its still a decent event so far.

    Spent hours last night trying to kill ONE of the night terrors...

    Problems were this.... first off the thing teleported around highly erratically. Secondly everytime it was teleporting erratically around it would eventually "bring friends".... these things were coming for 3 screens away to join the fight. Could not get the thing below 48 because of this. Tried luring the other Night Terrors away only to have them come back as soon as the other one got low..... also they would teleport inside some of the buildings around the area... and the regen rate on the thing was NOT friendly.

    It's a necro as well and was casting revenants constantly.

    Tried my bard but could discord but not provoke.

    Another problem we had was the thing is like a paragon and it retargets constantly and draws you in to it if you attack it. Any attack you do will provoke it's wrath on you to draw you in and often insta kill you.

    After several hours finally said forget it...

    Night Terrors are a pain in the booty. Took a large group to kill one and it took an hour, no heart :(. Later in the day went with a smaller group and it took two hours to kill one, needless to say no heart. I am the kinda girl that likes a challenge but these seem rather a waste of time. Since it appears only one person per kill gets a heart and they take forever to defeat and it takes a group to kill ...many will not do the third quest which seems rather bad planning on someones part.

    Re: Night Terrors

    Having been with Malag trying to kill ONE of them for.. uhm.. two-three hours (using a bard, a mage, a mystic/thrower, and TWO tamers with G.drags), I can say is they are extremely frustrating...and poorly coded.

    They exhibited several of the issues the GL EMs have encountered when trying to create exciting event monsters with varied powers. The more "power" scripts you add, the more psychotic the mob behaves... and some scripts simply don't play well with others.

    The Night Terrors are also another recent example of lazy mob design. Ridiculously high hitpoints with the typical Mythic kitchen sink approach to powers. They have Magery, Necro (to spam revenant), Spirit speak (to spam healing), HIGH poison, paragon speed, teleport you to them, can "call friends", and their movement is highly erratic (and prone to getting stuck in pathfinding loops). They have no slayer (that anyone has found) and even though their resists are in the 20's they take relatively low damage from players.

    While needing a group is a novel idea in an MMO, this bit of heavy handed forcing isn't the way to go. This is a quest to get an item that we don't even get to keep, and the reward is...a book. If EVERYONE who fought the Night Terrors in a party got a heart, then it might be worth sitting through a more-than-champion-length battle. While groups are nice in theory, one or more participants tend to get screwed by the group.

    Poor monster design. Almost as bad as the iWin button that the Slasher has.

    BS.

    Tell us how, in detail, or nobody will believe you.



    A further annoyance with these mobs, the heart does NOT go to the top damager(s). Its random. A group of 4 people beat one down to 32%, and one persone came in at the end with WoD (there was one in the group using WoD too).

    This will make getting enough hearts for a group extremely annoying.

    Thrower in wraith form - Honor it - Do 100-200 damage a hit + 1 Discorder

    Easy

    Also done with

    1 4/6 Chiv Dexxer + 1 Discord Mystic Mage putting down RC's - Took about 20-30 minutes

    Night Terrors are Slow - If you run into more than 1, it is VERY easy to lure one off.


    People should really spend less time complaining and spend more time using their heads.

    one minute everyone cries the games not challenging enough, now that theres a challenge everyones crying. i agree there mode of operation is tired from the same ol event mobs and minions from the first quest. its not about living in UO its about adapting to situations.

    There is challenging then there is completely insane and unnecessary. Last evening we were fighting them and then as it happened 4 of the devils got themselves somehow stuck on the ledge around the southwestern building. They were pulling everyone up to them and killing them in a place in which those without magery were forced to abandon their bodies because there was NO way for them to get their bodies back. I'd already lost my corpse earlier when one of the devils pulled my body to a space under the stairs on the building just to the North of that and I had to use the "help stuck" option.

    This is supposed to be a "challenge"?

    If this kind of BS is the DEV's idea of a "challenge" I say it's no wonder people have been quitting in droves and the game is losing 100's of subscribers.

    Lousy coding and poor thought and planning on the part of the DEV's is NOT challenging... It's extremely irritating and enough to make a person want to say enough is enough already.

    It's enough these things jump about more than Mexican Jumping beans I'm fed up with getting pulled into places I shouldn't be.

    I was sick and tired of working very hard to get into the Styngian Dragon just to be teleported into a space I couldn't get out of losing my corpse and everything on it countless times and I'm fed up with it now.

    If they are going to make monsters that teleport you like that they should at the VERY Least make certain your not going to get stuck INSIDE the scenery.

    With the monsters jumping all over hell and back it's no wonder more haven't gotten pulled into some ridiculous area.

    There were at least 6 others that got killed in this fashion last evening and I'm betting they didn't find the experience "challenging" after spending 2 or 3 hours getting one of the things down to 20% just to have it "jump" onto that ledge with 3 of it's kin and start mass murdering folk in areas they couldn't escape from.

    /all that

    Thanks, I was wondering how I got up there, same building (I posted about it earlier).
    It's part of Cal's new event methodology, "get 'em in, get 'em out" - get in, get a death robe, go home crying about a crap event. event over, wow that was fun.
    My advice is simply Stop Playing FAILs - and I didn't say stop playing UO.
    If people just stop showing up for these failed grind fests, maybe they'll get the message and start having fun playable event parties that people will talk Favorably about.
    Back in 2009, this city was a "Refuge" if I remember right

    Notice all the posts about the 'Other' grind fest in SW ter mur?

    The only thing i find annoying about the Night Terrors are the constant teleporting around. I find it ok that they are not that easy and need a small group to kill them.

    while helping guildmates get the heart, we found that summons make the terrors jump around alot more. so we changed to direct damage and they died alot easier. still took awhile.
    Also noticed that the Defiler was the exact same AI as a night terror.

    1. Terrors will teleport to someone inside or outside a house.
    2. Terrors cannot port over Energy Fields unless there is someone on the other side of it.
    3. Discord and Tribulation work well on Terrors.

    We found that doing them inside a house, with no one outside of it works really, really well.
