    Hiya, i opened a petition to make the arcane circle in New Magincia +1 Strengh so one can make a strengh 6 bonus focus there.

    This more relevant than ever, due to the fact that Britain is overrun by City Rioters.

    Good luck with this... I remember sending Mesanna an email I think last year asking about having one put in Luna (because everyone seems to enjoy afking there). I still haven't heard back on it, she said she would think about it and that was the end of it. From what I can tell they enjoy having to have people get together to get a focus when with the slow (or fast) decline in population it makes it doesn't always make it easy to get a group of random people together to make one.

    Putting one in Luna would make me explode, Luna does not need more advantages.

    I dont think your the only one that feels that way about luna. The problem and fact of the matter is though that West Brit Bank is dead and has been for years. The only way I can see people maybe fleeing to it is if they actually had an invasion in Luna. Otherwise, I mean I guess if that's your thing to spam for people then go for it. I just thought it'd make weavers lives a lot easier if they had a circle in a more populated location rather then trying to be heard over the spam in general chat in an attempt to try and get a few random people together.

    These shouldn't be in any city... It should be skill based... the pointlessness of 5 people grouping together to cast one spell then go their own ways just seems silly.

    20 skill = level 1
    40 skill = level 2
    60 skill = level 3
    80 skill = level 4
    100 skill = level 5
    120 skill = level 6

    The end.

    It would make sense if this game was sufficiently populated, however it just isn't anymore. Thus your idea should be implemented. :thumbup1:

    the entire idea of the focus is to enforce teamplay for that skill, which is why it uses a "focus" which needs multiple players (though it's essentially "broken" by use of joat) instead of a secondary skill. That's the tradeoff, you essentially get a "free" 120 skill points as it would be on other skills for your working together with others.

    They should just tweak it so that instead of a focus it can also use your Eval skill, that way people who don't play in a group to get the focus can still get the poewr boost but it brings the skill cost in line with all the other casting schools.

    Hogwash. A spellweaver with a max-level focus is either overpowered or not. What he had to do in order to get that focus doesn't really matter. The developers could just give all spellweavers a max-level focus upon login, and as long as the rest of us all conspired to keep it a secret from you, how would you even know anything had changed?

    "I sense a disturbance in the Force. Sure that spellweaver's spells are having the exact same effects as always, but... I sense that he didn't go through enough inconvenience yet today. Oh my god they got rid of Arcane Circle didn't they?!"

    No. The whole idea behind Arcane Circle is nonsense anyway. It's not encouraging "social interaction" or anything. No one is staying subscribed to UO because of all the really great friends they met casting Arcane Circle. It's pointless.

    And crying about how Luna shouldn't have a place to cast it is even more pointless. Brit bank is dead, deal with it, and put the conveniences where they're actually convenient.

    Please bring back Brit Bank, ok here's something, no, this sucks, put that something someplace else so I won't have to bother going to Brit, but I thought you wanted to go back to Brit, please don't take me so literally.

    If someone wants to blow up Luna, blow up Luna. If not, quit whining about putting things there. It's where all the people are.
