    1. Yes
    2. You say the words to the Armegeddon Spell (see the thread on this elsewhere).
    3. In the Moonglow event, regardless of character skills, it will blow up and do damage to the shadowlords. Outside the event, in the hands of a GM mage. will blow you up saying the words, possibly summonign a wisp.

    You know, the bright side of Adams dying the way he did, at the health club, was that he had his towel with him when he went.... [​IMG]

    At least he didn't leave his fans hanging like Jordan did....

    Really? Didn't happen to me ...

    Inside the event, yes and it will consume one blackrock.

    Well, technically, for the outside-the-event usage, you have to set it on the ground in front of you, instead of having it in your backpack like you do against the shadowlords.

    You'd think it would be the other way around - but when did logic factor into UO?

    Yeah but someone is finishing up the last book, and we can be CONFIDENT in the fact that it will be the LAST BOOK! It got tiring re-reading the whole series from the beginning every other year, over the past 15 years or so :/

    The blackrock will summon a wisp? A wisp like the shadow wisp to kill or a wisp like necro summoned helps with mana wisp? Or just a plain blue wisp? I haven't used any blackrock before, so I was a little confused. Sorry for the questions.

    using blackrock to summon a wisp,

    by casting the aramageddon spell (with either a 120 mage or 120 necro, I believe)

    if cast properly would summon a normal wisp, which you could talk to as part of past event.

    once you successfully did this your character would start to hear voices (seeing messages in the lower left of your screen) from time to time

    basically marking your character in a way that has not been revealed completely yet. It should be totally reveal (guessing here) with the end of the mad mage (moonglow event currently) events scheduled to wrap up in May this year. Go to uo.com click on live events 2008 you notice there an event scheduled for May.
