    Even then they said 'various' so may not be in all the anti virtue dungeons, but alas no actual reports of them being present any where.

    Maybe waiting to flip a switch and get out the storyline? It is Friday after all, and a lot of the times, they release the BNN reports around the same time as the FoF? Just a thought though.

    Is it possible we have to do something to activate the strange?
    And what about those clues that were mentioned by those military types outside the alternate Moonglow gate? I really hope those realte to something, or i'll be sorely disapointed.

    I may have found a "mysterious stranger" being a blackrock infected demon in Hythloth.

    The tag on this one is "unshackled Demon" its in the room at the top of the stairs from the level with the gargoyle cage. or on the same level with the Balron

    nice find but hes there from a very much earlier part of the story line. He will talk to you and wont attack, in facts hes not even blackrock but a ghost. Careful though everything else in there will attack

    From the FoF this past Friday....

    "Where are the "mysterious strangers" in the Anti-Virtue dungeons?"

    The time is not yet ripe for the veil to be lifted - they should start to reveal themselves next week.

    So patience a while longer I guess?

    *chuckles*

    Then unshackled demon is actually one leftover I don't mind for my part....That's his home. After he got unshackled, that's where he went.

    Are they supposed to be in ALL the anti-virtue dungeons? Tram AND Fel?
    And are they visible in 2D or only KR?
    And...and....?

    Your first 2 questions are unknown at the time.

    As to 2d or KR, I wouldn't worry.....All of the event content has been 2d so far.

  23. Anyone see anything so far?

    These were supposed to be in this week. It was mentioned in the FoF but I have yet to see anything yet and it is the middle of the week now.
     
  26. Do you think they put some sort of warning post in the BNN or at UO.COM?

    Usually if the BNN has any new info of importance it gets tossed on the UO home page also.

    Hate to double post but I did not want a second thread for this.

    Has anyone heard anything new?

    Or seen...

    Seen - nothing.
    Heard - nothing.

    I'll be doing another dungeon run tonight with my lockpicker (always hunting those elusive LP gains, 97.2, wee!) and will report on anything I find.

    Mind you, I am on Oceania, and will still dont have statuette engraving tools. Sigh.

    is anyone surprised that the mysterious strangers that were supposed to be turned on monday still haven't shown up by friday and probably won't show up until next wednesday? (i'm not - just take any time frame they give and triple it to get the realistic estimate - works pretty well so far for me)

    Ok, I'm not sure here, but there's one of those 4 armed blues demon things in the first level of Deceit.
    It's named "a demon".
    It's character paper doll shows a human with gray skin, and a title with the name, reading "The Famed a demon".
    Wearing a complete virtue armor set and using a Holy Sword. Also wears a robe called "Robe of the Equinox".

    Acting strangely. I saw this guy here yesterday too. Just standing in one spot, and mummies are attacking him as they spawn. He doesn't move or respond. He doesn't loot the dead mummies (or re-deaded? heh)
    Yesterday, after a while I moved on and when I came back, he was standing just outside the entrance to the dungeon, but again not moving or responding.

    Is this a macroer having troubles? (I'm not inclined to help him if so, not that he needs any)
    Or is this some "stranger". Certainly is strange though.

    Well to tell if its NPC or not I would do this
    • try opening a trade window - if its a NPC a trade window will not open
    • try opening the player profile - if its a NPC player profile will not open
     
  39. Trebr Drab

    Trebr Drab Guest

    Yeah, I tried the player profile yesterday and it opened, was empty.
    But trying to drop something on him to open the trade window doesn't do anything, including no message saying "this is not a container" or anything like that. It just drops the item back in my pack.

    Also, his backpack has a few items in it, and not much weight, so not much as far as stacks. 13 items for 19 stones.

    It sounds like a player, probably training up.

    Ways to tell:

    1. Look the character up on UO.com. Only time an NPC will show up there is if it's played by a GM. (Like Lord Blackthorn, when he attacked Yew, and some of the EM villains.)

    2. Does it have a character profile that you can look at? NPCs typically do not.

    Very good odds this is a player training up, semi-afk, however. Probably an RP character too, from the name and its training up in Horrific Beast form.

    Oh...The necro spell that does this is Horrific Beast, and the name of the form is "A Moloch." They spawn in Chief P's dungeon, and outside the Exodus Dungeon in Central Ilshenar.

    Looks really nice in KR, it seems!

    Found one!

    And damn did it hurt. This was in Despise on Catskills. Red vanguard looking chap, tons of special attacks and TONS of hits. Took a lot of us a long time to kill it, but kill it we did.

    No screen shots though, I was too busy spamming heal.

    Next time for sure.

    Just letting you know they're definitely out there now.

    Drops a PINK ' A MAGICAL LOCK CHSET' Apparently empty

    And , In Tram at least, a drop rather similar to the Champ spawn, with gold scattering around, AND hundreds of indivual gems.

    Maybe?? in Fel he drops Scrolls...wouldnt know

    As he dies, he area deadly poisons, nothing a bandy wont cure.

    Just before death he tries all sorts of weird magic....I did see a ghostly ancient wrym and was filled with awe and fear, but it was just an illusion

    Any idea what the chest is for ??
