    ok i have fished up 627 mib's since the new fishing system went into place. so far i have recieved one ships strong box. has anyone else had these dismal numbers? now luckily i have saved about 2000 more mibs to go but i think the odds are a little high on these.

    From here:

    FAQ Friday #5 - 11/05/10 | Mythic Entertainment | Ultima Online

     
  13. The odds are 1:25. That does not mean you get 1 in 25.

    Sometimes you crack 100 mibs and get 1 asos.
    Other times you crack 10 mibs and get 2 asos.

    Each mib is independent from one another. So having 25 doesnt mean you get 1 ancient. Cause the 25 you got could ALL represent the 96% of mibs that are regular.

    And at around 250, I got my second strongbox. Based on the data we have gathered so far, the rate seems to be around 0.5% - 1%.

    Does that not seem beyond too low to anyone else?

    The drop chance of moonsote jewellery pieces is beyond too low with 0.004%. We werent even sure they really exist until LeBation got the first one two months after the publish's release.

    The chance seems low until you got your first strongbox. After that, you dont really care much about them. :)
     
  18. I love the low spawn rate of strong boxes, and wish they were even lower.

    Look at the other new fish loot. It is already almost worthless by UO gold standards.

    Other than the strong box and bikini, the rest spawns excessively high.

    I wish they made all the new loot spawn at such insanely low rates, if not lower to be honest.

    It is a shame that a month after the booster, items are already not worth looting.

    Out of all those I got 3 ship strongboxes.

    What do they look like? Regular strongboxes from old (i.e. gold metal box?).

    After throwing a white net and killing off a Leviathan, I found a "wooden" box. Kind of cream colored like the event armor from Queen Dawn's guards. The contents of this box were a few blight.

    On siege i got 1 strongbox out of the first 50 mibs. Working on the second batch of 50 mibs.

    What did you find lootwise in the white strongbox? Was the fabled net still in there?

    Glad you still get a fabled net if you happen to get a stronghold chest instead!
