    kill players!
     
  3. opposite faction players, as long as they have points to give... you will kill some that have no points and if they don't then you dont get zip!

    The FASTEST way is :

    RUN around fell for 8 houres and seek a opposite faction player, then pray u found one that dont use cheating/speedhakking, KILL him, if he has NO points to give, then RUN around fell for another 8 h

    :) :) :)

    dev´s wag the dog again :)

    After the next publish it is going to be by stealing sigils. Steal and corrupt one sigil will make you rank 10.

    Kill enemy faction members...lots of different ones. For this event, you will get more kill points by killing those that have a higher rank than you do and making the kill in one of the eight faction towns in Fel.

    You can see a list of the faction ranks and titles in the UO Playguide at http://www.uoherald.com/guide/factions_3.php.

    Note: Something that needs to be clarified is whether this event's bonus kill points will apply for killing enemy faction characters that are on the same side in this war. For example, if your character is in TB and you kill a COM faction member, do you get bonus kill points or just the regular number of kill points? Or if you are in TB, do you only get the bonus kill points for killing SL or Minax members? (TB and COM are on one side in the war and SL and Minax are on the other side.)

    *Ahem*... gives you 10 kill points, NOT rank 10....

    Which in the current state of factions means you achieve rank 10.

    Nope....I seriously doubt I'll be spending much time participating in this event. Too much RL stuff going on and I need to get serious about closing up my accounts.

    Looking at the rankings today, it looks like virtually every player with 10 points or more has rank 10.

    Doesn't everyone start with 0 points? I am not for sure how it works.

    Also - theif question; can't a theif just stealth with the sig? Also, The theif basically has to sit with the sig for 24 hours, I thought that is what it said in the notes: I don't know a whole lot of theives with great defenses.

    Urgh ... where to start.

    * You have to reveal to steal - you may not steal while hidden. So if anyone is around, good luck with that.

    *Yes, you can stealth - in a WALK - with the sig. But you have to WALK (run) it to your base, you cannot recall.

    *You may NOT physically hold the sigil for more than 30 minutes. Currently 20 minutes will "reset" the sigil if another faction is in the process of corrupting it. At 30 minute, it pops out of your pack and back to its last location.

    *You do NOT have to sit with it, per se, for any hours. It DOES, however, have to stay on the post in YOUR base for 10 hrs (real game) or 2 hrs (test center) without leaving it for more than 19 minutes, otherwise you have to start the whole 10 hr (2 hr) timer again.

    *If you are killed with a sigil, you lose it.

    Most faction thieves I have encountered have SOME sort of defense, whether archer, magery or alchemy (explode/conflag pots).
