    I bet the dev team play necros, they just want to turn this into necros online!

    (I imagine it was a bug in the counter that was fixed rather than a concious effort to boost it)

    Hm, I seem to remember that. I'll pass it along. I suspect it got overlooked in the madness that was November - that, or it did get changed but the actual note didn't get updated.
     
  8. ooo! will those bunnies be tameable? [​IMG]
     
  9. Guest

    Guest Guest

    that what i was just wondering... what is the point of the bunnies?!? just to look at? cause ive found many on test shard and nothing spawns on them, havent tried taming them yet but, they should have like rare colored eggs on them or somethin! all ive came up with so far is ohh i get to look at a rabbit thats lil diff color.. not even special names for em or anything!

    Do you have ANY idea how this is going to affect siege PVP with the already current overpowered tamer bonding issue. Its just NOT right that not bola'ing tamers are going to have an even MORE powerful dragon than the ones that already blast you with 75+ points of damage from crazy spell casting and hits you for 50 damage!

    Seriously HOW LONG is it going to be before this little oversight ever gets fixed? probalby not before giving tamers more power on siege.

    "Certain" Dragons get buffed? Which ones and how do we tell which are which? I wonder if I will be able to take a new dragon or white wyrm to farm swoop the way I used to with my old cu-sidhe......
     
  22. I love the bunny idea. I had this thought when I saw a dark grey sheep one time outside my house. I thought it would be cool if they had a rare black sheep that spawned once every few months.

    Actually, some of us already have an idea, and I would assume the devs did too since they went live on test officially.

    When they were released accitently a little while back, a number of us did testing.

    When we tested, the -biggest- danger was not the dragon, but peoples lack of knowledge of them. I watched about 6-8 people try to go after the one LadyNico so kindly trained and gave me, and they were prompty eaten, obviously not expecting the beefier response.

    In usage, they are effective, but due to there only being -1- pet, and no mount (this is be a ninja pet in PVP, which needs to be corrected, ninja form should count towards control slots). Since there's only 1 pet, there's only a predictable melee hit, and spells from -1- critter instead of 2.

    So far the biggest effect they seem to have, is that it's probably far easier to kill most tamer instead of the dragon.

    They do good damage, but I'd rather see one uber dragon headed my way than a beetle/mare, or even normal dragon/mare.
     
  25. And let me add....Has anyone seen the live event content yet? If so, what is it?

    OK...Stuffy Horse is teh cuteness.

    I am actually glad they included the blessed bacon again, too. As long as that isn't meant as the main part in any given year, keeping it as a funny reminder of Wilki's "oopsie" one year is good for a UO tradition standpoint, as far as I am concerned.

    A little buggy.

    I'm getting Verite Runic Items with as little as 68% Intensity (Hit Life Leech 34%).

    Agapite at 64% (Hit Life Leech 32%)

    Valorite Weapons looks awesome! Wow!

    by 12 secs on Strangle yall mean 12 ticks? like 5, 4, 3, 2, 1; 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1 (that would be 22 seconds, no?)

    Guest Guest

    Barbed kits need higher minimum intensity. They are the best runic kit yet they are barely better than spined kits.

    Necro needs some love, hopfully this is just the beginning

    Strangle is easily removed:
    remove curse from chiv (only need like 50 chiv for nofail remove curse which is WAY less skill points than to cast strangle nofail, 105 necro and atleast 100 spiritspeak to be effective at all. Not to mention chivlary is STILL the ONLY casting skill with a FC at 4 instead of 2.

    apples

    remove curse talisman

    Dont nerf necros anymore til chiv is balanced

    its 12 ticks now instead of 11 if thats what you're confused about
    not 22
     
  34. Tested Metal armor. Base resists on metal armor still bite making it undesirable. No noticable GM bonus to resist while using a runic hammer. The properties however are good

    Please make metal armor viable for game play.

    The intensity of Hit Life Leech depends now on the swing speed of the weapon, so man can not know whether the Hit Life leech are appropriately added without knowing the swing speed of the crafted weapon.

    Back in my day we used to run everywhere... we ran from Moonglow to Skara Brae in a straight line without stopping! Not to mention the hills... It was uphill BOTH ways! [​IMG]
     
  41. When what I read on the in testing page has me thinking to myself "spined runics will be pretty good" then something fantastic has happened! Changing the minimum intensity was pretty decent but changing the maximum to 100% WOW!

    spined runic can be as good as horned (with more charges than a horned)
    horned runic can be as good as barbed (with more charges than a barbed)
    barbed runic still makes "the best" but... HORNED RUNICS RULE!

    They "can be as good" but usually won't be but still this change is awesome. The difference from a horned runic and a barbed runic is that the barbed runic crafted item MAY have 1 extra property but then again it prolly wont so that makes them even IMO.

    oh well guess I will not be getting one of those new pets, its like this dog someone gave me last year, have to be a elf to ride, unless you wear those fur boots/pads they have for human, but I hate that, my tamer is human, wear black sandles and rides a Mare. Now If the Dog would let me ride as Human, I would carry a enty mount to ride like my Daughter's tamer does.

    So this Dog has been in my stable for a yr and no one wants it. Its not one of those fancy colored ones that you see all those elf tamers riding.

    [​IMG]

    Now if this new Greater Dragon could be rode, then I go for it.

    One of the best things is that Spined Runics will be the kit of choice for use with spined leather. After all, most people, while looking to build a luck suit for a tamer or bard, are less concerned with other properties, you each spined runic will give you 45 shots at a 130+ luck item.
