    Obviously they are good swimmers, the European Blackrock Golems.

    Last night we all had fun killing loads of them all ower the island and the new peole wasnt in any big danger. I thought we killed them and that was it.

    This morning my BOD smith ran into six of them inside New Haven. There were some corpses here and there and ghost packies. Sir Helper was fighting one and it looked to be a loooong fight. I went to Old Haven and there were atleast Forty more Bl Golems there and at the south!

    We need some cleaning up here, we actually have lots of new people training on our shard long after they lost their younghood and lots of them use packies.:scholar:

    Is this an EM event specific to your shard? I just ran through Catskills Old Haven and I didn't see any at all.

    I cant believe this is on purpose. They apeared last night at the same time as we had them in Magincia.
    I didnt see them swimming from there but they must have I guess.
    Haven Island is supposed to be safe..

    So you only saw them in the waters around Old Haven? I have not fought one yet-are they magic users?

    No no I was just joking about swimming. Haven island is very close to the south of Magincia you know.One is inside the bank. Another at the forge etc..lots at the pumpkin fiels and south of them. One is fighting Sir Helper even.

    They are luckily slow but they cast rocks and stuff yes. They dont attack youngs with their tag left but at our shard atleast Haven is a busy place. Weaker newish ppl stick around for a long time and often use packies for recource gathering and fishing. I saw ghost packies inside the town already in the morning.

    Maybe this is only happening on the shard you play? Catskills Haven is completely clear.

  9. Europa started their event on sunday. No otehr shard has started to spawn these yet. Most of the shards are doig their even on Sunday i think, then you too will have blackrock golems. but trust me they take an age to kill and only drop the new armor, which doesnt look too goot TBF

    Waist of time!

    To help you even more Mesanna, Friend figured out possibly whats happening.

    Spawn range on Magincia is a tad too wide and they're spawning on the North of New Haven island, They then get dragged into the city. This is likely why Magincia is often empty, As they are on New Haven! :p

    Mag is a death trap. Only go there with a boat if not been there in some time. There is no way off the Island and the only heallers are in the mobs of Bane and Demons.

    But most over my fav is to go with friends and use the player with the rune near the gate area or the north beach.

    Hello Everyone,

    I turned off the spawn for golems, seems they need a bit more training to stay on the island. I will check daily to make sure you guys have some to play with though.

    I removed the golems in Haven this morning so you guys should be safe again.

    Mesanna, this type of Mag/Haven bleedover has been going on ever since the first Mag events on all shards (sometimes more obvious than others), it's just that the spawn bleedover asn't been as dangerous (and some people chose to farm the Haven bleedover).

    It will probably take a more in-depth look at the borders of what the game considers Magincia and Haven to resolve it. It might be something like transposed numbers.

    Writing 56 degrees south as 65 degrees (then converting the wrong number to the x,y system used by the server) would cause a 9 degree (100+ step) shift south, enough to get minor chances of spawn occuring at the northern tips of Haven.

    Writing 57 south as 75, then converting the wrong latitude, would put spawn almost down to the streets of old Haven.

    Or, a straight out keying of "24xx" instead of "23xx" as the southern bound of Magincia in the x,y system would have the same effect.

    Hm I saw some on LS too, I guess all shards had the region error. Wish I was there when Mesanna fixed it, grr! Haha.

    What's up with Chesapeake's spawn, by the way? Last I looked it was bane soldiers and regular, red daemons? Huh?
     
  23. Nice math theory, kind of two dimensional though ( as it >should be< ) ...

    but for all of the Sosarians vaunted "adventuring" ...

    That which is <>underneath the surface<> of deep water ...
    is pretty much unknown & unrecorded.

    An ancient hypothesis hold that: "The lakes and ponds are not likely bottomless, there needs be a "bottom" to hold the water up. The bottom is likely buried beneath a THICK layer of woods and leathers and ore's; and such, as whatever has been thrown in, fallen in or by neglect become sunken beneath the surface."

    As noted previously
    "Tis not likely that the golly great goleums swim or swam the surface ...
    "Tis unknown if they just merely WALKED ...

    It's not a spawn problem, the real problem are the golems! they are too smart and while players sleep during the night, the golems steal the ship left near magincia and sail to haven! :p

    If we don't pay attention they will reach the moongate and go everywhere! :D

    I would like to participate in this event so how about getting the problem fixed. Everytime I login there are no golems, I work for a living so I can't be on 24/7 waiting for the manual golem spawn. Or how about changing the bane guards in the captured cities over to the golems instead. Those locations are already hostile.

    The scheduled event was between the 13th and 15th, depending on which shard you're on. The Golems are not part of that event. They are, in a manner of speaking, a byproduct or bonus. Mesanna said they would be fixed, and they will. There is no reason to be rude.

    if event was from 13th to 15th and today is 16th. seems as if the window to "fix this" has passed us by.and I was under the impression that the rebuilding of magencia is the story line in which we are progressing in.with that said any monster or thing that should be in magencia(golems) should be there. and by the way there not.So whats your reasoning on this point?:mf_prop:Is it a bane arc? then where is the blackrock golems so we can avenge queen dawn.:confused:did we triumph over thier forces yet?or is this something that needs to be fixed? I say fix it. and do it now!:party:

    I am not trying to be rude, I was being blunt, I even stated that I was going to be blunt. I have been polite, I have been understanding, I have been supportive. None of those seemed to get my point accross. My point is I pay ($8,000+ so far) to play this game like everyone else and have very limited time to play and I would like them to fix the problems in a timely manner so I can participate in the events just like those that have all the time in the world to play. I understand that they have limited staff and the game has limited funds to advance the game. I also work in the world of IT and understand that things go wrong and must be fixed. I am just voicing my frustration in a way that might be heard and acted upon. What I would like to be acted upon is a fix in a timely manner for this particular issue. The question now is what response will we recieve from the Dev team on this issue. Also when I asked our shard's EM he stated that the golems would be spawning for several weeks, if he was wrong then the devs should state that.

  30. I would loke to triple this guy.

    I dont play UO anymore. I play Stratics to catch the time of events and spawns... Then I log into UO to kill something to get an item. Imagine how frustrating UO would be if we didn't have places to go to see what the heck i going on.

    Something is to be said for down-sizing.

    :eek::eek::eek::eek: MESANNA!!!!! HEEEELP! Legends' Haven is full of black rock golems, too. My sister is there now on her tamer. Its baaaaaad!

    :scholar:This bleed over has been going for quite awhile. Back when the bane dragons started spawning in the Abyss we noticed Bane Dragons in New Haven, Legends. I do recall a couple of our players posting in Uhall about it and basically the troll contingent told them in so many words to suck it up, and shut up. :wall:

    Please, please Mesanna tell Cal instead of another booster pack how about the biggest dang bug fix in the history of UO?!?! Heck if ya'll could nail down like a good 85% of the bugs plaguing UO we'd erect statues in ya'lls honor, throw a parade better than the Rose Bowl parade, sacrifice 1001 noobies, and most importantly: STOP BITCHIN....well for a while anyway.
