    like repair deeds, could they make poisoning deeds? have a gm poisoner/alchy be able to craft deeds of poison charges to sell. I dont have a poisoning skilled character but still like poisoned blades for my dexer. luckily i have a friend that does all my poisoning but would be nice for all to be able to recharge fast and easy. Make it so you have to use the deed in a npc alchy shop to keep it from being abused.
    Whats your thoughts?

    honestly - i want to see those types of deeds go away so you force the community to work together (i.e. smiths at the forges, tailor's at the banks and poisoners at the banks)

    Yeah, well, this has become the game for the anti-social. There is so much time taken in training this that and the other thing that no one has time to answer you.

    I went to the soulforge several times and said 'hello, how is everyone's skill gain? Anyone close to 75 yet? etc'.

    Not a single peep.

    Trained cooking up to 60 so I could make wood pulp for Scroll Binders. Went to bank and spammed for a scribe with SA to assist. Not a peep for like 10 min until someone blurted out 'no one feels like getting on their scribe'. Finally someone did and helped me make some scroll binders to test them out. I gave him enough pulp to make as many as he made for me.


    This game has become completely anti-social and finding anyone to assist you with anything is like pulling teeth. No one has time to bother on logging their poisoner to poison a blade for you. There is no loot in that so who cares?

    This game is all about pixels and loot and farming by anti-social mobs.

    I know there are some people that dont' fit this mold - but I'm saying on average......

    I've come to the realization that if I don't train the skill myself - I can forget about depending on anyone else to assist. So here I go training up every crafting skill I can possibly need because you can't find crafters to help you.

    Ya this game is losing its charm fast in that respect... *Sighs* for the longest time that's the only reason I played and every time I log on now I get closer and closer to my breaking point between vent and such things people are forgetting how to communicate via text and It makes me want to die a bit... And the devs just keep focusing on this anti social behavior... Bah Humbug!! thats what I have to say...

    Society in general has become anti-social.
    I'm guilty of it myself :(

    That would be great, but nobody is going to hand over thier UBBER stuff to a toon they only know in UO. If they let us repair the item in the trade window then it would work.

    I am by nature one of the most anti-social people you'll ever meet in real life. (I do a good job of hiding that fact for my job though, I really should be selling used cars.) However in game and on Stratics I try to help out as many people as I am capable. I can't count the number of times in the last 2 days I've switched characters to gate someone to Ter Mur, mark runes, or rez someone who's died while exploring. Its my hope that by doing that little extra to help out will encourage others to snap out of it and do the same.


    As for the topic at hand, I have to agree with the idea that deeded services should go away. I miss the player/player interaction.

    Feeling cynical today, are we?

    I find that if I offer something to make it worth their while, most people will at least say something to me or make a counter offer. If I just ask for repairs or someone to cook me whathaveyou then most people won't say a word.


    On the other hand, I haven't done a run of offering to repair or make things for a long time, since most people won't trust you unless they know you. Since there is no way to gain reputation any more other than in established player towns, you really have no options to sell your services on the fly.


    Draconi should look at eventually putting in a secure repair system for all of the crafts, it would make our lives so much easier and allow people to actually trust each other to a point. But that would be, what, publish 94?

    you are right

    BUT

    the problem is low population of the shards, nobody is standing the whole evening at bank to repair 3 gloves for 100gp

    the other point is, players are not willing to pay crafters, they give out millions for pixel stuff but wouldnt pay a crafter properly, thats why resources are much expensiver than the end product .... scrappers for 250k? but to buy the resource for it you pay a million? taint for 100k the piece is just a joke

    its somtimes hard to even get a res for your pet and there are much more tamers online than crafters

    Pet Rezes. No problem on Baja. Almost all tamers that see a dead pet just walk up and rez it. What makes me mad is a dead pet in Lune with no owner or the owner is AFK.
