    OK I know some where in these forums there is a section tell you how do donate to the library? I don't have time to do the things that a normal person would have to do in order to donate.. I know there is a quicker way of doing it.. I am working on Carpentry and would like to donate to the library so could some one tell me how to do this thanks....

    well if you just want to donate to get a item I would just donate the boards they give 1 point each so 200 = 200 points where as 200 boards can make 25 Bokuto that give 8 each so its the same by donating just boards you save a step!

    or there is gold

    if you want to do as you gain skill load all your packies with boards and tools and head to the library and craft and donate as you go ! there may be a way to macro it with uoassist but i am not sure!

    there was talk of changing the system but when and if it is ever done is anyones guess

    Try crafting the items in a container that is likely to cause everythign to stack close together (like a basket), or stack everything in a corner of a pack. Put the donation gump over the stack, to where the dot to click is on top of the stack - less mouse movement that way.

    Also, it's possible to record a UO Assist macro that will effectively donate one item for every one you manually donate while it's running. I did it by accident once, and can't remember how. I've heard stories of more efficient macro, though.

    I guess the primary question is what are you trying to acquire through the Library donations?

    Depending on what I'm trying to acquire, I'll do the following:
    Turn in raw materials: wood, ingots, leather, regs
    Craft items: swords, shields, axes
    Buy items: swords, shields, axes, regs, ninja hoods
    Collect monster loot:

    Assuming carpentry is for Bokutos, crafting is one option. Another is going to the carpenter shops in Tokuno and buying them up as well. It's a bit more efficient than throwing gold directly down.

    Gowron - it's also possible, if you get the quest for your crafter, to train a good part of the upper skill of Carpentry on Bokutos and Shepherd's Crooks (the latter go to the Animal trainer NPC on the second floor).

    It's a lot more cost-efficient than simply throwing the stuff away, or axing it, as you actually get something valuable (collection points) in return.

    Good point, Basara.
