    hi,
    yesterday i had my favourate pet (dread warhorse) get its magery,eval, and med wiped and are now gone forever (it has a dotted line now)
    It is just like a normal horse but with very good stats (still needs taming to control)
    I did page a GM saying about the dread horse and i got told they can not replace lost or stolen items!
    Can the GM not fix my broken dread horse? which is clearly broken.
    or is my pet permently nerfed? :(
    anyway, just a warning,do not to take a non-spawning fav pet into a bugged peerless.

    Saying they can't replace lost items is incorrect, I had an ethereal polar bear returned to me when it disapeared when I tried to mount it.

    So sorry for your loss though!

    I am really sorry to hear the Medusa bug has permanently bugged your Mare, Myphsar :-(

    Medusa's petrification of pets still seems to be bugged. In patch 61 it was fixed how petrification made pets lose their original hue. Now petrification appears to make pets lose their original spellcasting ability! I hope this is a bug that will be corrected soon.

    Also it would be nice, if the pets ruined by this bug could be corrected in the process. Possibly via GM intervention.

    ---

    Fighting Medusa I have observed other petrification bugs:

    * When Medusa makes a statue of you the statue acts like a halloween naughty twin and teleports you to a moongate.

    * When Medusa petrifies a player character, it loses its original skin hue and turns pale. The original skin hue does return after server down, however.

    ---

    The Medusa lair furthermore seems to have a teleportation bug where people are randomly kicked out of the lair long before the timer is up.

    ---

    The Medusa is actually a rather funny peerless to fight, so I hope she will get some bug-fixing care before long.

    I am very sorry to hear your pet wasn´t fixed. Since it was neither lost, nor stolen, I was confident a GM could help you. But apparently it doesn´t work that way :(

    does your pet lose poof cloud ability too? say "trick" to test.
     
  6. Page a different GM. The one that responded to you is obviously an idiot.

    Tried that, still looks like a normal horse with a dotted line where the skill is ment to be, but with dread stats/ resist's
    also has lost it's fire-breath
    I did page a GM again and got told they can not replace lost or stolen items.
    Its a little annoying about the dread warhorse but its more annoying that the GM's wont fix it, :(
     
  10. Try paging again. Do not use the word "lost" in the body of the page. Try saying something like- Dread Mare can't cast magery spells and needs to be looked at by GM for possible fix.

    It may take several pages, but eventually you'll get a GM that's already had their quota of donuts and coffee for the day and realizes that if they don't do something they might fall asleep on the job and miss out on the pizza that's coming later.

    i tend to think alot of em just don't know how to fix stuff, so they send the auto response. the ones that do are more than happy to fix it for you.

    Definitely page again, they have not understood the problem at all. Eventually one who does get it will sort it out for you, I'm sure - although it may take a couple of tries, they do seem to have a habit of misunderstanding things at times....

    I might page again if i have a few hours to waste, but i thnk ill just put it down to experience and not get to attacted to any pixel related pets in the future. ( i know that sounds funny)
    again, if you really like a certain pet do not take it to medusa unless it is a hiryu or somthing with no magery, eval etc.

    Did it really lose the skill, or is lore just not showing it?

    Since you found a bug to instantly remove skills in an unintended way, hope you don't get banned by paging. So they took a key word, "Lost" and acted accordingly, pretty poor service someone is paying for.

    You have to wait awhile to page until a new GM is on duty. Otherwise they send you the message to stop paging or else...

    But I would certainly keep trying... eventually you will find a GM who knows what their job is. Typically though they just sit there sending out canned responses to everything.

    I had them tell me once they don't replace items when I wasn't even talking about losing anything. I was paging on someone who was being offensive.

    Oh and... be sure to fill out the "how was the service" thing for each of the losers who don't know how to do their job. Perhaps if they get enough complaints on some of these idiots they will get better ones.

    so sorry to hear about your dread warhorse Myphsar, its not like you can go out and tame another. That pet is part of UO history and of course your pet, so next time your on doing something else page again, so your not sitting there frustrated for hours. I hope bug reports have been made on this and also a Dev steps in and do the GMs job if they contiune being incapable of helping.

    Go back to Medusa and use your dread mare again. She will fix it.

    Myph, mate, page again with the message: "My pet is bugged & needs resetting by a GM, please."

    In the meantime, PM me if you need a hand for Medusa.

    Hope the Devs will fix the numerous problems over there!!!

    Hiya Vix, *Waves*
    I did page again saying exactly what is missing / needed resetting etc.
    I got a response saying a GM can not replace lost stat's.
    I then paged again saying it needed skills replacing not stat's and got a polite response saying sorry they can not replace / reset lost skills.
    ahh well, at least it still looks like a Dread warhorse *Smiles*

    Myphsar, did you ever reenter Medusa and fix pet that way?

    And does anyone know if Medusa still causes this pet bug, or any other pet bugs for that matter? Thanks

    I once demolished my house to replace it on another account, but when i did, a chest i had did not come down, instead, it stayed hanging in the air where i could not get it. I paged gm and they sent the canned response of cannot replace lost items, i kept paging and eventually got someone to fix it. So don't give up on it, someone will eventually help you.

    pets arent the answer to everything. she can be taken down fairly easy with two dexxer's x healing, with or without wearing the gorgon lenses.

    stand in front of where she spawns and drag her to a corner. that way you dont have to deal with all the statues when they come to life.

    The problem I have is I always play a mage by default, but some of my friends will want to use tamers to get new items ... the way I always killed Medusa was by using Energy Fields though -- will have to see if this tactic still works!

    I guess until certain I will just bar friends from using pets then hm.

    Same thing happened to my Gdragon it was stuck like that for a week. I took it back in and had her petrify it again and he came out with all his skills but is still that chocolate brown color. I was upset at first but now I have a super rare pet seeing as they fixed the permanent petrify problem :)

    THIS is whats wrong with UO.

    Why waste time even having GM`s when they are either to lazy to actually help someone or just too stupid....
