    I just think its a shame that there is so much black rock in the game but many of us have to toss it out, give it away or sell it just to save storage space. so what do you say devs please atleast consider making black rock stackable Among other things that should be stackable but are not thanks.

    Blackrock is supposed to be "rare and valuable".

    However, there is already a massive over abundance of the stuff, due to scripters and the fact that it doesn't de-spawn if simply dropped on the ground.

    Keeping it unstackable is the only way to stop scripters amassing absolutely tons more then they already have. Though it may've already devalued too far already, for all I know...

    What is Blackrock used for anymore? I have recently returned and found a couple of pieces in my bank box. I remember being able to trade them in for arties a while back, but that was for a very limited time.

    Sadly, Im just a mage.

    I cannot get these rocks without help from others.

    The new ToT might help me a bit...but I still need all I can get. :)

    Refer to this post.

    I failed. :(
    I think if I had more I can succeed

    It can be used to infect yourself, causing your character to "hear voices".

    Infected characters used to infect nearby creatures, making them hostile and also cauing them to drop special black boxes. This was disabled about the time Crimson Dragons appeared (it also makes creatures a lot stronger, so...).

    During the Moonglow rift event blackrock was a near sure-fire way to get a Cloak of Corruption.

    Currently it has no "real" use, though being the phlebotinum of the UO universe it's bound to come into play again sooner or later.

    You know that blackrock doesn't decay, right? I have a locked room in my house full of blackrock that I just drop on the ground. (And it's full of stuffies, too .... they won't decay either). And I know of a private castle that has blackrock all around the grassy courtyard, it's been like that for at least a year.

    yeah I have a blackrock closet too. I really wish the black rock traders were around. I had taken a break during that time to focus on school only to find out I missed out a huge ordeal.

    Was def thinking the same. Found the lot from a decayed miners house. :)

    Nothing like seeing 500 pieces of the stuff stacked in a log cabin sized area. :thumbsup:

    Okay, I remember that now. My necro/mage blew himself up and he still hears voices when I play him. I remember turning creatures around me 'infected'. I received a box from a bird one time I think.

    Too bad they aren't worth anything anymore.

    Blackrock does not drop to the corpses of monsters. However, when you are awarded a "Tokuno minor", it may turn out to be blackrock instead.

    Oo, and you can't turn that in can you?

    Correct. Blackrock cannot currently be turned in for anything.
