    The new changes (faction artis and event rare replicas) are making so we can have more properties equipped and capped than i could ever imagine before. obviously the dev team class has gotten too powerful and clearly they need to be nerfed.

    Hehe, and we all thought that AOS was too much item based :p
    But at least you are required to keep a certain level to actually use these artifacts. And they can't be repaired can they?. Just imagine if there was only one ruling faction. No one to kill, so how does one keep that certain level, let alone reach it, if there is no other factioners to fight?

    They can be repaired, they can't be treated with powder of fortification, pretty much the same as the cursed arties we got in Magincia, so they will eventually wear out. But if you keep them in good repair they should last for quite a long time.

    I have never, ever had a cursed or non-cursed arty wear out. lol They typically get looted!

    What I can't get over is that the faction version of the inquis can be bought for 4k silver and are better than the normal ones, normal ones go for around 20 mil. Good luck to anyone trying to sell those anywhere near that price after 56 goes live! lol What a joke!

    well, to be fair, the only reason inquisitors are 20 million is because someone was willing to pay that much for them. The devs don't set the value on these things, players do.

    Well, I am willing to bet that these faction arties will not go around or be acquired as much as some may think they will. They have requirements to be met before they can be bought and kept. I may be wrong though. Luckily it's only in testing right now and will hopefully be altered enough before it goes live on the other shards.

    No kidding? Gosh, I had no idea! rolleyes: Think beyond that, Petra. Think about the effects these changes with have on other aspects of the game.

    I prefer to wait and see, my guesses about how things will work out in practice tend to be rather wide of the mark.

    I doubt the requirements will be much of a challenge since I'm seeing a lot of faction kill point farming on test. As far as maintaining rank, its just a matter of farming more points, revving up your speed hack, fighting near or from the safety of your house and refusing to flag in such situations in order to get back inside if someone dares to venture out a few steps. I'm not sure what its currently like on your shard, but we already have a lot of that happening on Siege and its about to get even worse. These new items are a really bad idea for Siege. I won't presume to know what effects it will have on yours.

    Well you wait and see all you want. I've been around the block a few times now on Siege. I've been here long enough to know that once this crap gets here, they won't remove it if it wreaks havoc on our shard and they DAMN SURE WILL NOT put much effort, if any, into doing anything speciffically for Siege to fix it either, so please spare me your brand of logic.

    Players don't set prices. Players only buy, or don't buy and suck.

    Scripters set the prices.
    Dupers set the prices.
    Traders set the prices.

    And those aren't "players". Notice I didn't say CRAFTERS, I said TRADERS.

    Draw your own conclusions and opinions all you will.

    As for the new Replicas I really won't buy anything for a month or two- assuming that's what's going on and not a massive deleting of dupes!
    Cuz I may have ****loads of gold and I might be impatient but it's gonna be pure masochism to be among the first to buy with the over-pricing that will go on.

    I dunno. Things are looking very, very weird in a negative way.

    Quite true, and, I'm sure the pixel junkies will argue and flame you for that one, but, you're not alone. I don't see the intelligence in all this rares junk either.
    You know it's costing them real life bucks in alot of cases.....(lol)

    I think sometimes the Dev team runs a speedhack when pushing publishes out and not testing them enough. lol

    Players doing the buying control the prices. If your foolish enuff to pay the scripters,dupers,traders price then you deserve your negative wierd vibe. Stop paying those outragous prices they will eventually drop exspecially with the new vendor system so now they will be charged for vendors holding those 40mill pieces that are only worth a couple.

    Quite frankly I"m about done with UO. If you aren't a disarming, dismounting noob with a uber 'take half your life in one swing' weapon, or a EO-para ganker, you better be part of a big gank squad cuz otherwise, you can't win.

    I've about had enough of the stupid pet tricks, and if nothing gets done by the next release I'm outta here like the other 100,000 people who've already vacated this game.

    the faction arties will only work for the character that gets them, not for another character on your account that is in factions either so they will be character based unless the devs change it

    Fail.

    Resources, Items etc from said persons ARE CHEAPER.

    Try again pal, I didn't complain about pricing I just stated a fact.

    "Negative weird vibe"? LOL
