    It had been a long time since I tried them, so I went to the nasty Ophidian Berserkers (they do still spawn in Tera Keep Fel late at night) and made a lot of tests. The results are clear: I don't know since when but they DO NOT WORK.

    For those who don't know what I'm talking about, those Berserkers have a near total damage immunity, you can do only 1 or 2 damage except -in theory- if using those special weapons.

    I decided to do those tests because I noticed the devs had recently given the "Mystic" prefix to new Shame loot which is completely unrelated, so I was wondering if they screwed up the "real" Mystic Weapons in the process, and yeah it appears so (although the bug could have been there since a lot longer without anyone noticing of course, considering the location and the spawn time of the Berserkers...)

    I don't know if there is any way to realistically kill them now without an army and a lot of time. And anyway I find this sad that those Mystic Weapons are broken, because they are part of both Ultima lore and UO history :(
     
  2. I had already posted about the mystic label, was not aware of the effect on those weapon types.

    The last time I have seen those weapons in action was for the Moonglow invasion. So far I only used mine when a special event happen. We will need to wait many moon to see you are correct. I will keep min to the bank until i can use then.

    I'm sure all the new events will have these creatures in it so no new players could participate in it because you need a weapon from 3-4 years ago to damage it...

    Actually during the Magincia invasion the weapons were spawning again on the mobs, so new players could still participate, not only the players from the previous event (Ophidians), so I don't think it's a problem.

    The issue is that they don't work anymore, while the Ophidian Berserkers still spawn.
