    when does the explode pot that follows you around corners and explodes on contact get fixed.....ive been killed by explode pots only by some noob throwing them like a machine gun and they stick to you like glue.....with gm alchemy on a naked char someone can kill with this lame tactic....

    i have heard rumors of the new client being able to do it
    i have heard its a script but i doubt it
    i have heards its a uoa macro
    i have heard its a Razor macro
    i have heard its an old kr client macro

    one of these makes the sticky follow you around the corner explode on contact pot
    but it needs to be fixed asap

    Uh... if you know how to time them right, there's no way to miss/dodge.

    timing is not the problem....the following you around corners is the problem and its not just timing as i have used a stopwatch to tweak it out and they stll fall on the ground when the target is moving....so try another lie please

    Scratch isn't exactly the best person to have represent an idea. However, there is a significant problem with throwing explosion potions on the run. By no means is it a machine gun effect, there is still a timer. But it is ~30 damage on the run. Achievable via a UO Assist macro, but more commonly by a script.

    The devs need to take a serious look at how potions are being used in PvP at the moment. The problem is mostly on Atlantic at the moment and a little bit on Pacific. I even admit to being a subject guilty of throwing pots on the run. If I'm using it and complaining about it, then you know it's a problem. I'm sure Tenki can vouch that I'm one of the more competent PvPers in game; giving my post more credibility than it already has.

    UOAssist macros are scripts, too, you know.

    You can't play two uoassist macros at the same time though...

    Well I have to say that I agree with Chad 100% on this one, it's sad to come back to uo and see some many scripts being run now. And I don't give a rats a** what anyone say it is a scipt there is no way to set UOA up to run 2 macros at the same time. And while they are fixing that bug why not go and nerf the tamer archer as well. It's sad to see how far PvP has fallen very little skill left anymore.

    I tried everything with uoa macros and was never able to get it to work properly.

    If people are telling the truth that they are only using uoa to toss them, I would like to know how.

    I still dont see how anyone dies to this, but then again I havent come up against anyone who tried it on me.

    If anyone wants to kill me on TC1 in that manner, let me know and I'll meet you there. I would love to see how it works and what all the hoopla is about.

    I agree with chad, and I will vouch for him also on being a competent pvper, and also vouch for him being guilty of throwing pots on the run perfectly. I love fighting chad and I hate fighting chad. But at least he is consistent with what he does in game, always gives u a bad ass fight no matter what the circumstances, and is for the most part a pretty straight shooter when it comes to telling it how it is.

    Gotta give the man a little credit there for coming out about this when he knows he does it so well. Definately not out for himself but for the better balance of the game. Kudos chad fwiw.







    ...and you can repay my thanks by refraining for throwing pots at me for the time being. Thanks.

    that is the dumbest macro ive seen yet

    it is a simple uoa macro for most
    and a script for others....

    your above macro will throw pots on the ground as you need to wait for the timer to die down and not just a target cursor

    your grade is an e-f for epic fail

    It cracks me up sometimes how everyone jumps to scripts as the problem so quickly and easily. I agree that stuff like this can be annoying but it does not prove that someone is cheating. Furthermore, there are plenty of tactics to deal with such an attack. Anyone ever try running back at the person throwing the pots? I know, I know sounds totally crazy but, gosh-darn-it that just might work!

    Wow, how's that method of communication working out for you? What an asshat.

    Scratch, did you bother doing a search of this very forum?

    Here is a quote from a sticky post in the UO Tech forum. In this post he clearly states at the bottom "Fine tune the timing...", meaning that if you get it just right, you will get results like that of which you speak. Not only is it a UOA macro, it is totally legal because of that.

    Read on...

    "Is there a way to toss Greater Explosion potions in UOA?
    Actually, yes if you’re willing to invest a few minutes of time following these instructions (reposted from Alchemists Forum and reformatted slightly):

    Responses to this are for 1, 2 or 3-bomb setups. Instructions are basically the same, except for 3-bomb. Each is marked as to what it will do.

    Go to the UOA macro directory which should be a path something like:

    C:\Program Files\Tugsoft\UOAssist\UOA-Settings\[account name]\[shard]\[character]

    In here will be some files named UOA-Macro##.cfg where ## will be a number 1 – 16 to represent a macro slot.

    In Windows Notepad, open an existing macro file or plan on saving as a new one.

    Depending on which bomb macro you want, select the text from below – starting at “Locked=0” to the last ##RY=999 line.

    Press CTRL-C to copy it, change to Notepad and CTRL-V to paste it in.

    If the cfg file was already existing, do File  Save from Notepad.

    If this is a new file, File  Save as and supply a correctly formatted name for the file (UOA-Macro##.cfg where ## is a 2-digit number for the slot).

    3-Bomb setup:
    You need two (2) inner packs/bags to do this.

    Distribute the bombs evenly between your main pack, bag 1, and bag 2...

    Next, go into your UOA macros and go to the 3 bomb macro...

    Click on the 4th line of the macro and hit "Load Item Bag" and dbl-click/open Bag 1.

    Now on the 7th line, you'll need to load bag 2...

    Then on the 13th line, load bag 1 again..

    And last, on the 16th line, load bag 2 again...

    And thats it. You may have to adjust some of the pauses in the macro, but thats about it. The 2 bomb is roughly the same, except you only need one bag instead of 2 and you'll load that bag on lines 4 and 10...

    SUGGESTION:
    Fine tune the macros with timings, etc by using NPC lesser potions. It’s cheaper and SAFER!

    I hope that helps. So, rather then complain, just do it yourself until they change it.

    To be honest, there is another UOA macro that works even better. It fires a pot each time you hit the button, AS FAST AS YOU CAN HIT IT. All of this done with a Origin Approved Third-Party App, UOAssist.

    But I'm not telling. You'll have to get by with the one above, or figure out how to use UOA to its fullest. Good luck, and happy bombing to you!

    Sorry. It has been a couple years since I have used these forums and the Trolls are not as apparent to me as they once were.

    Seriously though, I can't see why he is complaining. The devs went out of their way to make such a template possible. I have one myself.

    Alchemist, Archer, Poisoner.

    Quite a capable template, and a crafter as well.

    Deadly Poison arrows with Serpent's Arrow and all the Explosion Pots I can throw (doing max damage to boot!). Of course such a template isn't very useful unless you have a bow that allows you to use pots while shooting. Damn!

    But wait! BALANCED bows! Gee, I wonder why the devs put THAT property in the game. The AoE damage pots were just the icing on the cake.

    That Macro was made before UO:R. In T2A explosion pots stuck to targets much like arrows and shurikens today, however around the release of UO:R explosion pots drop to area and not on target. So in actuality it is fixed and not broke lol

    Hey bud, go to the vendor shop in the NW corner of Luna and by an oil cloth. You can use it to whipe the sand out of the fleshy patch where your balls used to hang.
