Potential Exploit in the imbuing system...

Discussion in 'UO Siege Perilous' started by Ole Cheapy, Sep 2, 2009.

    I was thinking about the newbiefied weapons like kryss and dagger that are newbiefied. Will a person be able to imbue these weapons? if so that would give that person yet another blessed item on siege causing yet another form of imbalance. just imagine a dexxer with a newbie dagger with 5 mods on it then he siege blesses something like a BOH or an item that gives ssi or hld...things could get real ugly really fast!

    the developers better think about that one... food for thought.

    Practice weapons aren't blessed, last I heard.

    Edit: Practice and newbie are different.

  8. You're right, practice weapons used to be blessed but that all changed years ago. Dagashi, considerate thief that he was, would tell me to not carry the practice bow I always kept in my pack anymore when that change happened.

    Try dying while the weapon is equipped.. last I heard it remained on your ghost that way.

    Your only going to be able to imbue 3 properties to 100% max not 5 anymore.

    In old days, a newbiefied item would stay on a ghost of a blue char but drop on the corpes of a grey or red char.
     
  13. it will still be cheap to have a blessed katana with 50% dci 15% hci and 50 hit fireball

    they will probly fix it around the same time they fix spellbooks, in the mean time im walking around with bless fcr 1/4 ^_^

    These newbiefied items I;m talking about are definitelt blessed and stay on your corpse upon death, I know because i own a couple myself and my hue is as "rash red" as it gets! I prefer not to exploit this overlooked concept but if everyone else will be and I know you cheesy bums will then you can bet your bottom I will be on this bandwagon too!

    I just prefer EVERYONE have ONLY 1 bless item on siege no matter how rare their template is or any other lames excuses.

    A weapon can still be very dangerous without the properties being 100% intensified.

    It is not intended that blessed items be able to be imbued.

    I believe that whole heartedly (is that a word?) but I'm afraid it will be one of those lil things that kinda slip through the cracks on siege.

    Edit: The thing is these weapons dont have the blessed stamp on them but they stay on your corpse upon death.
