    For those who didn't catch the first video 'how to win uo' which contains tips and tricks on setting up your character and desktop for pvp you can find it here:



    Part 2 is all about Mounts, Dismounts, and Remounts,

    This is the second installment in what will hopefully be a series of videos passing on knowledge and experience to younger players. All criticism very welcome.

    Nice to see a fine upstanding Pvp guild on Eruopa doing good!

    Its players and guilds like these that makes UO what it is.

    So a dismount stealth archer is no good, you need to do it with bolas.

    I'm a bit rusty on the EC, i made a mistake. The macro to res your pet should just be Bandages>target>stored. And you select your horse. If you target your pet then use bandage>target>current then your pet will be your last target which you don't want.

    Thanks, Mervyn. Good stuff, even for someone like me who doesn't really PvP but visits Fel fairly often. I'm looking forward to the next video! Thank you for taking the time to put these together. I really like how you explained differences in certain features between clients, how to set up macros in both clients, and the various tips on setting up your client or UO Assist. Very helpful and informative.

    Edited to add: And I also very much appreciated when you hovered over stuff with the magnifying glass "tool." It's very frustrating to watch a video and find the resolution is so poor you can't read menus, etc.

    2 things.
    1 - with is with the 2 buff bars? im assuming its a EC things cause ive never seen that red buff bar before in CC

    2 - trap boxes ya dont need 55 tinkering to make them. infact your much better off to make them with like 33 tinkering which you buy then wear a talisman, the talisman skill dosnt go against the damage increase from tinkering skill so you will make a box that will only hit you for 1-3 hp instead of 13-15 hp.

    Thank you voodoo that is an excellent tip, although i must confess i don't use my own trapped boxes or potions, all of mine are looted from other players.

    Please continue the series! We need more things like this, and less talk about what needs to change!

    Please note, the numberpad bug mentioned in Episode 4 has now been fixed. You may now save macros on the numberpad on non US keyboards without having to edit the Keynames file.

    Only criticism I have is that if you set the game client priority to real-time, other Windows processes take longer to execute, which could inadvertently affect game play negatively.
