    Hi all,

    does anyone know whether the archery butte is merely a decoration item, or if it can be used to make a contest, similar to the dart board?
     
  2. They say that archers tend to go for the big buttes...

    The old school UO would actually show the arrows attached to the butte when you fired at it.

    *giggles*

    He said "butte"...la
     
  4. Reminds me of a Robot Chicken episode...

    *The Sherriff of Nottingham shoots an arrow directly into the bullseye of the archery butte. The crowd applauds as he walks off.*

    *Robin Hood (disguised in a cassock) walks up to the mark, and shoots an arrow that splits the Sherriff's arrow.*

    Friar Tuck: "We have a winner!!"

    *The Sherriff comes back*

    Sherriff: "WHAT??? We BOTH hit the bullseye. HE simply hit it SECOND!"

    Friar Tuck: "Ah, but it was Robin Hood who showed superior skill by..."

    Sherriff: "WAIT!" (Turns to Robin, Robin winces) "He's ROBIN HOOD??"

    *Cut to later... Robin Hood is hanging dead from the gallows*

    I like Big BUTTES and I cannot lie...
    You other warriors can deny...

    But a archer walks in with an itty bitty bow and a round thing in your face you get sprung...

    *sings*

  8. Still going on about this in my mind.... just hearing the intro from Baby Got Back.... with Minax going on about Gwenno....


    "Oh. My. God. Mondain, look at her butte.
    She's like, casting EoO and CW to give her 200 DI. It's no fair. Yech.
    The only reason she owns in PvP is because archers are too overpowered.
    It's not like she risks damage or anything, running from the monsters."

    yep just tried it and you can use it but when you do it keeps saying can't reach that which I would assume it isn't supposed to but you can still shoot arrows at it.
