    Can we please FIX UO instead of adding more thing to it that's going to break something else... Longest running MMO and it's been broke for 15+yrs. I think we can all hold off on new content, pvp concepts etc. Lets just fix what we have...


    1. Duping

    2. Exploits (Gargs Throwing Bolas while "FLYING"

    3. Client Crashing when things die like a horse ( Has to be something sound related)

    3. LAG

    4. More slayer options for imbuing ( Fey, Beetle, Dread Mare, Etc)

    5. Frenzied Whirlwind ( So it can't be spammed)

    6. Stackables ( To many to list...)

    7. Evil Omen (Direct Damage) example: Nerve Strike

    8. Animal Form ( Being disrupted by someone spamming weaken on you)

    9. Non Damaging spells being able to disrupt ( Should Work Like Curse and just fizzle if the target is already cursed. Players should actually have to be skilled instead of spamming a non damaging spell to disrupt anything you cast.)

    10. Essence Of Wind (Needs Diminishing Returns)

    11. Factions - Don't Remove a lot of us actually love factions... (Stat Loss Timer - 5 Minutes) ( Going into Stat because a non faction player killed you, Silver Cost, And Much More)

    12. Artifacts needs upgraded to be Equal to Faction Artifacts - Example Ornament Of The Magi add Mana Regen 3 , Crystalline Ring add Fast Cast Recovery 3 ( Don't remove them just make non faction artifacts that are just as powerful.)

    13. There should be a mount for non faction players that are just like War Horses (Good Hit Points, Can Have 100 Resist, Can be resurrected with a bandaid)

    That's just a few things I'm sure there is a ton of stuff that I'm leaving out. We as a community need to come together and get this game fixed. It's obvious we all enjoy playing it so lets try to get our game fixed for a change instead of adding some more things that will break something, or introduce and new dupe etc.

    I mean if it's about Money I would gladly buy a Booster Pack that Fixed my game. Just saying.........

    I just came back from a few months break, but before I left the current team was "fixing" the game left and right along with adding new content as well. They even had one large publish that was nothing but fixes. While I will agree they still have work to do, to me they seemed like they were the first team in a long while to put those fixes at the top of their "to do" list.

    While that is true there is still a lot of things that are sadly broken. Also I just added more to the original post.

    1. It would seem that with the Tagging of Duped items that they are Monitoring Dupes and Duping Methods. Its not Full Proof, but its a start.

    4. Fey Yes, Beetle you have talismans, I swore dread mares already had a slayer.

    8. Couldn't agree more. Making Animal Form able to be Fizzled is Fine, but Taking away faster casting from it made it almost useless. Double Nerf...

    9. Meh, weakens always worked since the beginning.

    11. Two Thumbs up on the Stat Loss timer Change.

    12+13. Wouldn't this sort of defeat the Point of Factions? Strongly Disagree with those two.

    Other than 9,12, and 13 I pretty much agree with everything.

    I disagree with...

    #8. Animal form is fine as is IMO. It's still tough to keep someone interrupted in a one v one situation, which is how these things should be tested.
    #9. If anything, Curse shouldn't fizzle if your target is already under it's affects. (I won't go into detail as to why)
    #10. Essence of Wind, I could see a cooldown, or diminishing returns as you say... I do not believe Thunderstorm is unbalanced, or overpowering in anyway to warrant a nerf or re-balance though. (kinda 50/50 on this one =D)

    Other Things:

    Poisoning - Poison Immunity has got to go. (if it's that important, Poisoning should provide a bonus to Orange petals.... atleast make people carry another consumable if they really want a free cure)
    Casting Focus - change the way it works, or remove it. Mages never needed such a thing.
    Spell Consumption*** - I'm not sure what this does exactly, as its pretty damn hard to test with it only spawning on ONE item & it's only 1%...
    but I'm quite positive it can't possibly be a good property to allow other items to get it.

    Stone-form + protection - please... just make these two spells NOT Stack. I do not feel like playing a necro-mage, or a mystic mage to make this as an easy kill, like every other template that has no "near invulnerability" like the combination of Stoneform + Protection provides. (Stone-form is already good if people go 4/6 mystic and stay in stone-form, so you can cast at 2/6 speed...(at least they're on foot & interruptable)).

    I have one more :)
    Fixing crafted artifacts, some of them are way outdated, special the minor ones. Tweak them so non Imbue crafters again can sell them, without need to have imbuing.

    Fey would be good, but Rune Beetles and Dread Mares are pretty easy to kill. There are Rune Beetle Killer talismans, though.

    I've said it before, I'll say it again, necro spells should scale. You shouldn't get the same modifiers at 20 necro as you do 120 necro, and spirit speak should factor in on magic resist reduction, at least for PvP. Being able to cut magic resist in half with a tenth of 120 is fairly OP.

    Then you would just complain about Harm spam. For the sake of argument, what's so skillful about pressing a button while you run (Animal Form)? I don't believe Animal Form should ever be the crutch it used to be, but maybe there could be an interruption immunity timer if you have 100+ ninjitsu (like immunity after being disrupted five times in a row or something).

    You should really consider adopting the Hero/Evil system that's on Siege Perilous on all servers that would also encourage players to join factions.

    1 Hour of Monster Ignore is all :)'S

    Don't stop there though be creative come up some things that will really motivate us to fight for the control of towns.

    1: exactly
    2: Fix one thing something else pops up, bolas are the least of my concerns
    3: haven't crashed in a while
    3?: The lag is a game changer to me. I'm east coast and getting outran by people from 3rd world countries..literally
    4: Good idea
    5: only hurts pvmers and we know how this will end..
    6: doesn't effect me so..
    7: Confused by what you're asking..
    8: form is fine the way it is. I have had 0 trouble getting out of ganks with my ninja
    9: makes sense but it would break the long standing dueling tradition
    10: disagree (with the amount of pure BS questing and trying to get a circle it SHOULD provide MORE than it already does)
    11: as long as I have oranges I could care less if factions is alive or not
    12: ive been saying this for almost a year now
    13: would make playing a new account easier so you got my vote there.

    *I think they should change the passive poison resistant to require 33+ poisoning or something of that nature.
    *I think they should find a way to code the ability to turn Casting Focus on and off (at least in arena).
    With that said, I also feel like the arena server is laggy more so than not. I don't get it, certain servers of this game are just so laggy for people.

    the thing that annoys me the most in classic client is the limited number of health bars you can grab to 10, i would be so glad if there was no limit....

    I mean if you have lets say 6 guildmates on, you can only grab 4 enemys bars which is completly stupid. If you have 10 guildmates on, well you cant grab any more bars haha funny
