Looking for a UO Hidden Places List

Discussion in 'UHall' started by IPlayUOTOOMuCH, Mar 15, 2008.

    Im trying to compile some kind of list of my own and I know there is a few.

    Thanks!!

    The dungeon under Buc's Den. No spawn, and nothing there, The top shows thru, and radar map shows you on the surface.

    Six?? hidden valleys in Malas, reachable by finding the hidden bags containing runes.


    The pirate cave entered using the password "rhumbaba" (don't know if this is shard-specific.)


    The cave to the west of Yew winery, now only reachable using an "exploit".


    Several places that got blocked by the introduction of ML.


    "Hidden Valley" west of Trinsic

    Yeh there are the everyone knows about em, the assorted secret hidden valley locations Malas.

    Probably shard specific in that maybe they differ, under Ocllo *pirate cave* on Siege and ya need the secret word to get down there. On Chesapeake under Nujelm pirate cave there tram side.

    Wintersoul fel side quite lovely inside, in thru ore mtn on Cheaspeake.

    There is that one dungeon under downtown Trinsic on Siege ..think that only is shard specific ?

    Once upon a time one *could* go under that gazabo on Magincia but then they blocked it, not like it matters now they destroyed Magincia.

    Once upon a time one *could go behind Lord British's throne ...............they pretty much blocked that all off too. *sigh*

    Used to be able to go under Justice Falls but with the new YewJustice Falls Garden Park, going under the falls well that probably is over with too.


    All the old world to lost lands old lands passage ways; that some folks forget about, some may think of as secret, though they are not, but only one Yew prison cell etc. etc. will get ya to the lost lands light house. Portal isle old world, to the lost land..no secret, but lots of folks forget about that though.


    I have entered fire dungeon on Siege ..depending on use of assorted correct passageways, usually one is quite dead though, still ya end up in the dungeon of all the dragons, then using the right passageways there, ya can end up in Deceit ..interesting journey, doubt it is any secret, and ya usually ya quite dead though but kinda cool how they all hooked up when one thinks on it going from serp hold isle via fire dungeon and ending up way on daggar isle. I did that on Siege though, I never tried it, on Chesapeake.

    There are tons of hidden places, some of which require a password. Some locations are shard specific as well, usually remnants of EM or Seer events. If you tell me which shard you're on, I'll gladly tell you the ones I know of there (if any!!)

    Among my favorite are:

    CATSKILLS

    I have some runes on Napa, to different places, in the walls around brit, under the fountain in nujelm, and a couple of others.

    Also we have several Event locations on napa, the one shown in the pic above is in moonglow under the conservatory.

    Theres also a place in minoc, and south of yew theres an entire dungeon mirroring khaldun thats half unlocked because the events were stopped before we could finish the story line. Several event locations in felucca as well.

    My favourite memory in UO is when someone took me on a tour of hidden places that only GM's or seers could go. He/she was making a special rune library of hidden places with OSI/EA's help I think. I wish I could remember who that person was but it was a long long time ago. All I can remember is that I had to make a newb char since it wasn't on a shard I played (I was either playing Cats or Chessie at the time) and that I had a blast! I was totally amazed that these places even existed in game.
     
  10. there is a hidden beach in ishnar.
    chaos find the cannon and double click it .. ( look south west corner of the chaos area . it is inside a building also )

    But I can only partially take the credit. I have been trying to catalogue all the unique locations on every shard for quite a few years now. I ran up and down every American shard and found quite a few spots but there are so many that are impossible to know of unless the locals tell you about it. So I had held a little contest 3 years ago I think asking people to submit a unique location on their own shard and the person with the coolest one won some gold. So I made up a webpage for each shard and ran a xshard event based on those locations. But I've been too busy lately to update those pages because there are tons more new locations that have been added over time. The plan was (and still is!!) to use the list the Devs had requested from us not all that long ago to update the pages.

    For now though, here's how to get to these places:

    On Catskills, go to the coordinates 110o 33'S 7o 10'E in Felucca. In a cave along the mountain range near Destard. You must stand on the white pentagram inside and speak the word " frostflame " to be able to enter the secret lab.


    On Sonoma, go to the coordinates 14o 51’N 23o 16’E in Trammel and you will see a red moongate with an inscribed deed on the ground next to it. Go through the gate and it will take you to the hidden room in the Hedgemaze (Felucca). Beware of the spawn in that room!! Stand in front of the Flaming Head and say the word "Vengeance" and you will be teleported inside the hidden lair. To get out of there, you will have to speak the word "Revenge" which will take you right back to that Hedgemaze room so be ready to run from a spawn gank [​IMG]


    On Chesapeake, again a white pentagram, same location as on Catskills (110o 33'S 7o 10'E in Felucca in Destard mountain range). Stand on the pentagram and say the word " Wintersoul".

    On Siege Perilous, you can only access that platform by boat. As boats are super expensive there, unless you have a buddy to take you on a ride, you might be sol :/ If you somehow manage to purchase a boat, be VERY careful not to have a hidden thief hijack it right under your nose the minute you plop it on the water [​IMG]. The platform is located North of Buc's Den at coordinates 37o 10'S 118o 58'E.

    On a side there, there is another hidden room on Siege. If you go inside Trinsic Townhall your will see some sort of rocky formation with stairs going down. It will take you to an underground lair full of Fire Elementals and Earth Elementals.

    On Napa Valley, go to coordinates 55o 48’N 149o 59’W in Trammel (the Lycaeum) and you will see a hole in the ground surrounded by scaffoldings. Just drop in the hole to enter the area.


    On Europa, this one isn't overly hidden, just more of a "enter at your own risk" kind of deal. Go to Fire Dungeon (Felucca) and as soon as you step inside, you will see a door on the cave wall in front of you. Go in, follow the path and it will take you to what looks like a pretty big pirates lair.


    On Baja, (that page is REALLY NOT up to date!), there is a huge underground area with boats. I dont remember how to get there, I'll run around later today to find it. Same with another room where EM Vincent had held someone prisoner in some jail. I seem to recall that you can access that jail area by clearing the moongate maze in Moonglow.

    There are however these hidden areas I know how to get to. Go to the 3rd level of Covetous Dungeon in Trammel. In a small room north-west of the corridor with the ruined portrait (before the throne room), you will find an ankh. Say the name "Khane Sehtu" to the ank and you will be teleported to the Maze entrance. To reach Khane's lair, you can either take the shortcut (say the word "stix" to the wooden pannel at the entrance of the maze) or you can try to solve the riddle by answering the riddles found in the books inside the various rooms of maze. The solution is the word "ermifa ge" (no space between fa and ge but the filter is being a pain -_- ) that you must speak to the door on the north corner of the maze which takes you inside Khane's House. The door on the west side of the maze goes nowhere.

    You can get to the Gate of the Abyss by speaking the word " Vas An Lor" to the golden large crystal at the top of the Daemon Temple (Trammel). The gates lead nowhere so dont try to get to the other side [​IMG]. You can either recall out or say the same word to the Gatekeeper to be taken back to the Temple.

    Last, but not least, you can get to a Sacrificial Altar by speaking the word "mohrg" to the Essence of Sin (a black cloud) floating atop the pyre inside the marble building on Marble Island (Felucca). This is NOT the marble building with the stairs leading down to the passage to T2A, it's the other building to the West. You will see the path by the water leading to the floating platform. Beware of the natural spawn in the area, but more importantly of the high end undead special spawn just north of the altar. The altar itself is safe. The event linked to this altar never took place as the EM program was cancelled right before it. There is no natural way out of that area (that I know of) so once there, you will need to help stuck out as this is located in T2A Fel.

    Enjoy!

    Hehe actually there is a very cool hidden room on Lake Superior. The Library in Jhelom (Felucca) has been all spiffied up. If you go downstairs, there are some "rare" items on display and a bedroom in the back that most people dont even notice because the door is so discretely positionned in the East corner.

    [​IMG]

    I made a page for each of the American servers. So if I didn't link your shard here, you can just look on the left menu under Shards [​IMG] But as stated before, this hasn't been updated in a while so the most recent additions wont appear there. Some older locations too aren't displayed yet :/

    Ooh there's a few hidden spots on LS.

    Those that know of them like to keep them hidden is the thing. [​IMG]

    May I recommend The Library of Exploration for a few such as islands and hidden rooms. You can reach the Library outside the Cove gates.

    I remember my first experience as a newbie stepping into a moongate. Fell for the oldest trick and ended up on one tile island.
     
  20. On your Atlantic page the bottom two pictures, you say 'bauble' at the magic door to get teleported to that room.

    You also missed several! (all on Atlantic)

    In the swamp south of Destard theres a red moongate that takes you to fel.

    In the same swamp further down one of the huts has a highlightable fur, if you double click it you get put in a small dungeon area full of ratmen, if you make it through past them, at the other end there is a spawn of rat mages. In the swamp tiles by them there is a tile that drops you down in to an empty level which is where an event boss was once spawned. I think it was a Barracoon but I'm not 100% sure on that.

    In Ilshenar far North east of Spirituality, through a spiders cave, through the etheral fortress, in to an undead chamber, there is a deed on the floor. If you say 'masteropenthydoor' you get moved in to a corridor that was part of the riccardo story line, the whole of that area has a one tile line of sight (like the broken despise bridge). There are various 'gas' rooms and dead end corridors. There is an ancient lich/rotting corpse (various other) spawn room which of course being in Ilsh can also spawn as parragons. If you make it through to the next area there is a room full of demons and balrons, corpsers and an npc ghost. To proceed from this room you need to say the word 'Futile' by the north door. The word Futile is written on one of the music sheets in the room. This puts you in a corridor south of a room filled with trogs/ogre lords/ettins/trolls, to proceed from here you have to say 'Concerto' which is on one of the shield at the north end of the room. Next to the door heading to the east corridor... when you walk to the end of this corridor you drop down in to a room with a rack/iron maiden/cells where an event boss called Yriggor once spawned. He rode a reptalon and was healed by pets (like paroxysmus), I think he had a crystaline ring on before he died. Killing him took forever, wether the crystaline actually dropped in his corpse I don't know.
    Inu was held captive there in one of the cells.

    Another one...
    In brit sewers as far north as you can see on map, there is a sign post. If you stand by it and say 'Charvory' you get teleported to the end of a tunnel, the tunnel goes through some gassy swamp tiles which have invisible walls so you have to zig zag your way through. At the other end you go down a ladder in to another corridor with invisible walls but without the gas, again you have to zig zag your way through. Poison elementals and acid elementals spawn there. When you get to the end you drop down another ladder in to a raised up maze in a room full of various types of orcs. If you fall off of the raise up maze you have to find one of the few parts that let you get back up. When you get to the end of it you drop down in to a room, the room has crystal elementals and quagmires spawning in it. On the east side of this area there is 'The Remains Of A Moongate'. To the south there is a 'Boulder Trap' if you walk behind the boulder you appear in an area sealed off just above the orc room you just walked through. In this area if you go by the metal door you get dumped back out on the other side of brit sewers and have to make your way back out.
    I don't know what part of what event was down there. I think it was before the rat coins.

    There was also that place in Ilshenar where the 'Time Lord' first appeared and there was that boss that looked like a wanderer of the void and it had the ability to cast mirror images. I don't remember the word to get in there, but i think it's no longer there anyway.

    yeah those are the more recent additions, I have them noted down but never got around to add the pics and update the page [​IMG]

    But thanks for pointing out the thing about Bauble. Somehow, the text got messed up. Fixing it right now!!

    I need someone to spank me out of my procrastination mode about the newer stuff though!

    Then there's the not-so-secret but most definitely unique tunnel from the Brit moongate to the guard tower next to the WBB in Great Lakes. I remember someone telling the story of how "Sparky" the fire beetle got stuck down there, but it escapes me at the moment. If anyone knows the story, please do tell.

    And here is the page for Oceania. If you know more unique things there, gimme a shout! I believe Sienna made a huge maze there somewhere.

    I'm also trying to remember which shard had gotten the giant fishtank.

    If Dev's would clean up after themselves, we wouldn't need to 'exploit'. What makes that area a no recall zone? someone refresh me. and why is the reason still valid?

    Agreed! I know of a Huge underground mining area w/ lake (zero spawn) I'd hate to see disappear

    That's not naughty at all. I think it adds something to the game, from the player perspective as well as the game. Like you said, a secret isn't a secret if everyone knows about it. And to be frank, I wish UO had a lot more secrets.

    If you login to Atlantic and head to Goodman's Rune Library you'll find some pretty cools places there. (GRL is located just North of Makoto, and has 'GRL' on the roof so you can't miss it on your overhead map.)

    Personally, I wouldn't post any if I knew of some not listed, because the devs might stealth nerf it so you can't get there anymore.

    It's been done before.

    Exactly my reason for not posting any of the 7 rune books full of rare/secret places in my personal collection.
    Sorry for not partaking in this noble attempt of sharing UO locations with unknowing/curious players :(

    I have donated a few runes to DeadBob and Lady Tang's public collection but having seen some blocked by GMs,
    I would rather not see anymore neat spots blocked for absolutely no legit reason by the powers that be.

    This is an example of why I think travel between shards is destined to become the "new normal" in UO, and is something that should be a little more accessible to everyone -- even if it's on a more limited scale than the shard shields allow. The ability to "tour" other shards to visit friends or experience special features and events really makes so much sense, especially given the lower overall population in UO. Add in the difficulty finding necessary goods on player-run vendors on low-pop shards and the new banking changes, and there's just so many reasons to do this...

    I'll second that. It's just about impossible to get items you need on Oceania these days. Either total and complete self sufficiency, or Xsharding is the new norm. (Is reminded of needed vendor changes! :p)
    Cheers
