    The new publish notes state:

    Though this is ambiguous in that it could only apply to ghosts in Champ Spawn zones. I suppose it'd be easy to test on TC...

    I see no good reason why it shouldn't apply to all ghosts.

    So you're telling me that there's a script that TIMES An IDOC while you're a ghost..? Because I KNOW you're not claiming there's one that allows them to scout as a ghost & place it.

    People dual box, ghosts on one and a main toon on the other, watches with ghost & loots/places with the alt!

    Also, don't lose sleep over a pixel house, please. :(

    It would be great if this new feature does remove corpseless ghosts from everywhere periodically. Like you I take the time to watch Idocs and get the turn time and fail to see why cheats should obtain it without effort.

    My only weapon in the past has been to post a news type article concerning this kind of scripting.

    My last article see -http://vboards.stratics.com/showthread.php?t=142062
    concerned a recent resurgence of ghosts on Europa. It is interesting to note that following this post the ghosts returned to their endless sleep and have been seen no more. It would appear that even ghosts read Stratics.

    Go troll some other thread. My time is my own, and I'll do with it what I please. I'm only talking about people who will park a ghost at a greatly worn house in order to get the fall time, and have to have a script running in order to stay logged in. Exorcism would at least let us reveal them and report them for running scripts.

    Maybe ghosts should only be invisible as long as they have corpses rotting on their subserver?

    You can consider getting Spirit speak if you still have roomm.

    Allows you to see ghosts. Which in turn, should allow you to target-page them.

    yeah I had no idea! I edited the initial post...I can't put exorcism on this template (it's already cramped with tons of junk) but I can trot my necro out when I need em. :)

    After standing out in the wastelands for about three quarters of an hour, I'd agree.

    Still, if auto-Exorcism can be added outside of Champ zones, then I say go for it, devs!

    Not a solution, as it removes the possibility to RP a ghost.

    100% spiritspeak allows you to talk normally when in ghost.

    hah, actually this template that i idoc on has:

    100 hiding
    99 stealth (might GM)
    96 ninja (might GM)
    104 magery
    Gm tracking
    100 vet
    98 animal lore (working on getting it to GM)
    94 herding

    Thats with jewelry and a spellbook that gives +10 magery. I have five spare points and could go down to GM magery so I could GM all the near-GM skills, well maybe not herding, but I could get it a little higher.

    So no room left! This is going to be my pet finder, once I get lore GM'd, and in a week or so my packies will have bonded so I can have 5 bonded packies to idoc with. I plan to train them. I'm a bit sad that they don't have some kind of equine pack instinct, but I'll make due. :p

    I spent some time yesterday buying packies and releasing the ones that had low resists. Which reminds me, I have a question for the tamer forum...

    I have a stealth pet finder/herder too hehehehehe. But why are you keeping vet if you don't have taming? Drop vet, then you have room for gm SS. Makes for a very good scout template. Pack some MR eqm and use magery to heal.

    Pack horse actually pack quite a punch to be honest. Don't use llamas though, they are alot weaker.

    Yah I did a little reading on the hunters guide to figure out what resistances. No idea why they made llamas so much weaker. I got vet to help me gain in lore and also to heal pets while I'm training em. Not sure if I'll keep it now that you mention it, tho it is kinda handy for rezzing (which I may have to do if I decide to go to fel falls with 5 bonded packies :p) I'll definitely keep it during training, anyways, now that I have it up.

    See if you can bump it to 107.5 with jewels, you get 100% success for llama/ostard form. I know you can over-cast it until it works but I find the convenience worth it.

    I have at least 108 Ninjitsu on all three of my ninjas, plus I have 2 Animal Form macros. One is the basic cast that either brings up the menu or, when moving, assumes the last form. The other is a UO:Assist macro that casts then chooses llama form from the menu, I punch that when I want a quick getaway as I typically use wolf form or better, which seems almost guaranteed to fizzle when it counts.

    My pet finder is a ninja twink. 70. Overcast til I succeed. Using it more for convenience than getting out of tight situations.

    Tight situations = smoke bomb first, then recall hehehe

    Hrm! That's a good idea. Dunno if I can manage it until I drop vet (if/when I do), I do like the increased ninja (due to jewelry already hehe), it's normally 81, and I'm used to fizzling bunches on llama form.

    My jewelry (skills only):

    ring
    vet +15
    stealth +12

    bracelet
    ninja +15
    anat +13
    stealth +12
    magery +14

    So the ring I can definitely swap out since I really don't need the stealth increase. I'll have to keep an eye out for a nice ninja ring. :)

    It's a tough call really. I could see problems if this applied to all ghosts outside of champ spawns. Though having a way to prevent spawn cams is great.

    Not really sure what those problems would be. Once your corpse has gone, it's not like you "need" to stay in the area. Granted, some shrines might need to be removed from the teleport list (sending newbies to Dagger/Ice Isle is a little harsh), but what else is there to worry about?

    Would it stuff up roleplayers? Maybe, but if for some reason you feel you "need" to stay dead for more then the quarter hour your body takes to dissolve, you can still make do with a dyed arti shroud. You're roleplaying, after all, it's not like you actually need to be dead. ;)

    Sarsmi, not sure if someone else mentioned this yet or not because I skimmed the thread rather quickly, but I believe you must have 100 real skill (i.e., not based on jewelry) in Spirit Speak to see ghosts and understand what they say.
