    So this morn i checked out the Shadow Lords on ATL - all dead in less than 20 seconds.

    Please Please tell me the dev will at some point spawn a Crimson Darggy in there and put a wall up so no one can run away. Or perhaps teleport everyon within 10 tiles of the SL to a distant land filled with all sort of very stong evils.

    Make it so only the sruvivers get loot not just the first three weinies to get of the armagedon spell.

    One of the weakest events I have ever seen.:loser:

    It should take a good five mins to kill this champ. Even with all the GD's and stuff no one would have to worry about dieing but at the very least it would add a bit of length to the event.

    I'd love to see it running around with 80K+hps, 4/6 casting, protection, a group of followers and only witherspaming(with max sdi) all the way...now that would be a good laugh. Pity that UO would never actually do something that could clear a room. It's totally possible to solo this guy with nearly any char you would want....sad.

    the shadowlords should be able to control and turn the dragons because they are allied to the crimson dragons...
    saying the blackrock spell should use up a piece of blackrock every time the spell is spoken! much like you would use up a reg if you fizzled your spell!

    and yes i have a dragon and yes i use a dragon but im finding it extremely unfair for anyone who doesnt have a dragon..
    maybe im one of the less greedy people?

    just my opinion lmao

    I am just having fun participating in the event. I have one cloak. I hope to get others but it is not mandatory to me.

    The spamming is what bugs me the most,you cant see anything... the only way you know the shadow lord has spawned is when everything starts fighting.

    These aren't the Shadowlords; they are coming later in the event.

    These are their Manifestations, a weaker image of them who are just beginning to poke their spiritual energy into our plane of existence -- searching, constantly searching for something...

    ...

    Whatever they are searching for, the only thing they are possibly seeing is the hindquarters of about 76348537465876 dragons... up close... and fragrantly personal.
     
  9. The manifestations are not as powerful as the actual lords and given that on some shards you have a couple of dozen people waiting for them and most with dragons, the rate of dispatch is about right. I have found that using a dread/bake combo works very well more damage per sec than a dragon. If you attack without the blackrock you do some damage but not enough through the shield though I suspect 15 dragons and mages hitting them at the same time would do it. Being on a small shard they do last a bit longer and it is possible to actually find times when only 3 people are there

    Wouldn't it be counterproductive to their searching for their manifestations to be so damned weak that they last less than half a minute and dont actually get to .. you know... go search? Not to mention these guys could be summed up as "immortal beings of pure evil"... since when has one of those, in ANY form, been this weak?

    They should be scaled to the number of people on their subserver when they spawn.

    Hehe. Awesome.

    I'm glad I had a cloak from the last time they were available. This doesn't sound like something I want to be a part of.

    Ok, one spawns in the Waste (Makoto) one in the Frozen waste (Lady of the snow area) (Isamu northern tip) and the other is supposed to spawn at the Volcano (This one I haven't seen yet, I mainly go to the Waste) (Isamu as well, can't miss it on your map) .

    Perhaps what we are seeing is just further proof of their "Distraction" So while we are distracted thinking we are holding them back, they are in fact searching other parts of Tokuno.

    Honestly this story can be bent to fit any situation. On the other hand, I agree they are to weak even if this is a "distraction" or whatever they are. =\

    If you say so...me, I like the cloaks. I look at this event as an easy means to a pleasant end. :)
