    Anyone tested these?

    I saw them in the patch notes, im curious how muchregeneration they add, etc.

    Awesome, or worthless?

    Great, thank you.

    Does anyone know if these buffs exceed caps?

    For instance, can you get to 78 DCI, 130 med/focus, 20 sdi in pvp, etc?

    What is a soak exactly? 5 less damage per hit of that elemental, or like 75 fire.. etc?

    Good questions. Hopefully the EC would show these resists and stuff.
    There's no way that these items take you over the cap. At least I think.

  8. Definitely agree that some of the new buffs look useful, and 5 minutes is surely a useful duration. However, based on what I've learned about fishing (been doing it for a couple hours now), I wouldn't count on having a consistent supply of these for your PvP needs.

    The process of getting the special fish needed for these buff pies seems to be as follows. Start by doing normal fishing quests where one of the rewards is bait to catch special fish. Catch 10 of the fish in question (not that easy because there are so many different types now) Sail all over Sosaria delivering fish to docks in various cities. Get a random reward bait to catch special fish (1/16 chance to get what you want I guess). Catch the special fish. Make the pie.

    Yeah, someone will probably figure out a way to script them out by the ton in a few days, but from what I can see now, an active fisherman/cook can't hope to make more than maybe 5 of these things a day. Not really enough to count on as a reliable pvp resource.

    I certainly don't think you can count on them as a normal resource like potions or apples. More like blackrock stew for bane dragons. Yeah, I think it's available, but does anyone actually use the stuff? Unfortunately...

    Those buffs look interesting, and 5 minutes is a good deal. I'm going to have to work on my fisher...

    Uhu ????

    Script the new fishing quests ??

    I thought now Ultima Online was (finally) a cheat-free game and that scripters were banned on the spot....

    Did I think wrong or missed something ?

    The prized fish now buff you 10 skill points for 100 sec. The big question I still need to find, (due to they are cuaght less now) "will they stack?"

    Actually, my testing indicates the prized fish, and the other two types that give stat buffs, give GM-eval intensity versions of Strength, Agility and Cunning -

    Which amounts to a 11% bonus (rounding of the extra stats may cause it to display 10%), for 126 seconds.

    You don't need the baits to catch the special fish to make the pies. So far today I've caught

    Reaper Fish
    Autumn Dragonfish
    Yellowtail Barracuda

    And didn't have bait for any of em. All the bait does is give you a better chance of catching them. Oh, and they're location specific - have fun with that one, chaps :)
