    Try to solo the slasher. Of course, you might have to fight a defensive battle, retreating as you fight. But who can blame you, after all, he is a very tough monster to solo......

    yesterday, courtesy of CD, one did not spawn for over six hours..

    Tamed it, ran up to silver sapling, then hid and sat on it forever.

    The DV need to fix the mechanic of the game because this is effecting all the player. For some people this is a family game but Right now the DV seating on it and do nothing. The more you are dis-honest the more you can get away with. We find the Guy that hide the bane today, we ask him to recall out but he say no. So put the same mechanist of the renouwed that when a Bane get tame and it not leaving the server or sub-server. make a new appear anyway. this way ppl wont rune other game play and time.

    Don't be so sure. I'm watching closely for any kind of official response or lack of response to the complaints about this stupidity, and I'm someone who actually owns a couple of the bane dragons tamed on shards where guildmates and I had good timing, I guess. I've never sold a pet in-game yet and have no intentions of starting, so this isn't about someone interfering with my ability to "make a profit" in UO. Nope, it's about EA designing a brand-new situation that they could be pretty darn sure would lead to griefing and then deliberately sticking their head in the sand and ignoring the inevitable fallout. I'm tired of paying for people to get their jollies being anonomyous psychopathic bullies. I refuse to be an enabler for that kind of behavior.

    Maybe as the story arc moves along they will spawn in other locations like the did with the dreadmares, otherwise it is pretty poor planning on the devs part by basically saying that unless you have SA and a blue tamer your pretty much at the mercy of the sellers.

    The Devs were all over the "illegal" Hellhounds. If they cannot figure out how to fix the code so another one pops, just make 2 spawn already, or more.

    IF YOU INTRODUCE A GLOBAL EVENT STOP LETTING 1 LONELY SAD INDIVIDUAL STOP A WHOLE BLOODY SERVER FROM TAKING PART.

    THE GM'S WONT EVEN DO ANYTHING AS THEY DONT EVEN KNOW WHATS GOING ON IN THE GAME (WOULD EVEN HELP IF ONE OF THEM WAS A UO VET TO UNDERSTAND THE GAME AND PASS THE INFO TO A HIGHER POWER WHO CARES ENOUGH)

    HE'S SAT THERE NOW AND BASICALLY JUST LAUGHING AT EVERYONE AND THE DEVS ARE LETTING HIM, EVEN IF WE AS A COMUNITY TAKE IT INTO OUR OWN HANDS AND LURE SPAWN TO HIM AS HES AFK, WERE GONA GET THE BAN WTF!!!??

    I PROPOSE EVERYONE WHO DISAGREES WITH THIS SEND MESSANA AN EMAIL COMPLAINING AND HOPEFULLY SHE CARES ENOUGH TO DROP IN ON EVERY SERVER AND BAN THE IDIOTYS DOING THIS TO GAIN SOME FACE THAT THEY HAVE LOST BY BEING SILENT AND ARROGENT ON THE MATTER FOR A FEW DAYS NOW.

    Sometimes, Cal, et. al., also respond to Stratics PMs. You could give it a shot.

    I do know that they don't have much say over the GMs, as CSR and the development/production team are two different beasts. However, I do think that they have the ability to execute a viable, creative solution to this problem.

    Would be nice if they did what we 90% of the comunity wanted them to do.

    STOP THIS FREEKING GREEFING AND MADNESS WITH ONE PERSON "JUST 1" PREVENTING A WHOLE SERVER FROM ENJOYING THE EVENT.

    25 ACCOUNTS AND ONE PERSON WITH ABOUT 2 MILL ON EACH SERVER COULD SHUT THIS EVENT DOWN BY TAMING ALL 25 ON EACH SERVER AND JUST SITTING THERE FOR HOW EVER MANY WEEKS.

    I'll never understand those whose entire objective in game is to ruin other people's fun. This folks is exactly why we got Trammel - to "trammel" the actions of a few like these.

    I'm thinking the simple solution is to make it so that as soon as a creature is tamed another will respawn. I'm sure this will have unforeseen consequences as well, but hopefully not as serious as what is going on right now.

    Wednesday night, I went to get a Bane Dragon. There were 3 others down there all taking turns...killing the weaker Banes, waiting on the stronger, more desirable ones to spawn. Once a decent one spawned, who's ever turn it was, tamed it and recalled out...NEXT. It went very smooth and everyone was being polite, healing/curing each other, bit of chatting going on, even helpful hints as to what a "Good" Bane Dragons stats would be, what would make them more desirable, etc. It was actually quite fun being down there with such nice people. ZKV, CD, GoL (me), and 1 no-tagger. Guess I got lucky.

    That's what it's been like on Europa when I've been down there. And a very good experience it's been too. Unfortunately, we have a periodic griefer there, but I've managed to miss him so far.

    I was on europa this morning with 2-4 others and they helped me tame a few nice dragons.

    I went back about 2 hours ago and it was empty :)

    Wonder why i left europa now 18 months ago.

    I know a guildie has had trouble with a griefer, but most folks are nice and polite and help each other out. I've never played on any other shard and don't intend to :)

    This is why you need separate PvM only and PvP only shards. You have have less bored or greedy people griefing others.

    Please don't promote that agenda here, it's not relevant. These are not pvp players. Nor are they pvm players actually. A divide between the two playstyles would have no impact at all.
    In my personal opinion they are not 'players' at all, they are vandals.
