    There doesn't seem to be many around, I saw some NEW even gave one a boat. I've got a lot of old stuff I may try selling for cash.

    I'm looking for some role-players if there are any guilds still around.

    Where do people hang out these days?
     
  2. Welcome back Saul. Not sure if I have this right but were you a guild with Salt Foambreaker?

    UO in general isn't what it was, most shards are pretty quiet from what new folk tell me, apart from Atlantic which apparently is still busy.

    Try contacting players via general chat. If you haven't heard of it yet, click the chat at the top of your screen when you log in, choose general and then click join. To use this chat type a comma, then your text will be seen by anyone on Siege who's also joined the gen chat.

    If there's anything you need just shout.

    The name is familiar but it's been a while. I was a bleeding hollow elf, so I'm red, and my last time I played I was in faction. I used to run around with Judas and at one point we owned the 2 houses on Blanche island.

    I've talked a bit on the chat and spoke to a few people and I have some characters on Atlantic which does seem busy. I really prefer siege though as I have a bunch of old stuff here and I'm fairly wealthy.

    I wonder how much a hero dyed shroud of shadows goes for these days? or if they are able to be undyed, I know their stance likely hasn't changed though. :)

    Are there any artifact wep vendors not around the gates? Looking for a new fence weapon... Or an archery soulstone. I'm thinking of switching up my skills a bit.

    I'm thinking of dropping necromancy for chivalry and going paladin archer as I'm likely not into pvp much these days and would probably be better off with a paly build for pve. Necro seems fairly weak for pve and chivalry has always been strong.

    If I'm able to id have 7k to 10k of each necro reg for sale. :)

    I'll get on later to confirm some stuff I can sell. If I wanted to setup a vendor, would trinsic gate or that new zento area be good?

    Bushido chiv archer is a nice pvm template. For weapons and equipment, its mostly imbued stuff these days, with some arties thrown in if you cannot get the mods otherwise. If you need something imbued, just ask in chat, a lot of people got that skill here. Not many people sell imbued weapons as the mods can vary a lot depending on what you want.

    Well I haven't played since before SA so not sure on what's best for imbued weps. I'd probably want hit lightning, mana leech, ssi, and dmg bonus. Anything else would be gravy. Not sure what all was out there so that's why I was asking if any vendors were out there. Usin Titan leg Bone ATM and it sucks.

    My necro just seems really weak in pve. Was fairly strong in pvp if I recall.

    Only mod that will cost a bit here is ssi because of the relic fragments needed.
    For pvm weapons its usually mana+stam leech, di, options are slayer, hld, hla ,ssi , hit area for whirlwind.
    Necro with curse weapon or in vampiric embrace works well in pvm, but it needs bushido and chiv for best results.

    Edit: I always seem to forget about the fact that hit lightning also needs relic fragments.

    with imbueing most old school items became very low in price.

    rares might still be worth some. very little has gained in price from the older items.

    Yes it was in fact Sanford. :)
    Good rl friend of mine for 20 years now.

    I sailed by the island yesterday to see who had it and both house spots are open. I was surprised at first then realized there is better real estate available and islands can be dangerous. :)

    Hey gang.......to my wife's frustration, I've come back to the world of UO. The account is 93 months old and I haven't played in a couple of years....just left the account open and wasn't worried bout the yearly payment.
    I recently started watching some youtube posts about the high seas and was interested to see if anyone on Siege was using the expansion?
    I'm looking for my old guildmates as well......H&H(Heaven&Hell)......Or if you are just looking for someone to run around with, let me know....I'm bored ass and need to get back into the swing of things...and from the looks of it, a lot has changed.....

    NJ_Bain.....aka.....Dodger (my Siege Character)

    I haven't got high seas because I'm red and can't buy one of the new boats from the npc without buying a whole new acct with high seas. Bleh.

    NJ_Bain Guest

    Saul,
    Can't you transfer ownership of a boat? I've got to start raising cash to buy a boat though.....was hoping to find an existing crew.....
    I've been playing it on the test shard......its an expensive venture to say the least....many skills required to build cannons, cannon loading equipment, ammo, charges for ammo,etc...etc....but lots of fun....after 3 days of trial an error, I finally beat and captured my first pirate solo.....it was a pain in the a** at first......
    I can honestly say, the reward should be MUCH bigger than 10k in gold and a special prize for capturing the pirate alive......I spent that much on saltpeter for 100 powder charges......not to mention the amount of wood and cloth needed to repair a boat when its damaged.....
    So is anyone interested in creating a pirate/pirate hunting crew?

    He'll I don't care about the combat aspect honestly; I just wanted a cooler boat to sail in - I don't have magery so it's how I get around. :)

    You'd prolly have better luck starting a new thread with this idea, it's a good one. I just joined a faction guild so I guess I'm out.

    I, and probably several other people, would be willing to boat on your behalf. As long as no blasted pirate waylays me on the way to the market :D

    I'm considering getting a char going on Siege probably crafter as I don't pvp and I can't imagine not getting ganked constantly while doing pvm. I'd be up for some role play once I get started
     
  19. Tazar

    Tazar Guest

    Siege is not the PVP gank-fest many believe it would be. You'd do fine with PVM. I've been on the shard for about 4 months (three hours per day or more) and have only been pk'd twice.

    This is true. Youre more likely to run into factioneers patrolling for me. :)
    Ive been back over a week now and have yet to be pked, although Heavenless has tried numerous to give me faction stat loss. That last attempt with the stealther mage casting energy fields was brilliant. :)

    So basically if I were to get the high seas expac someone would trades a boat? Lemme think about it as I just dropped a few skills and training some more. I just realized I could have every skill available at will via soul stones and I'm focusing on that ATM.

    Just wait till you realize that you'll want multiple stones for different levels of the skill, depending on template.

    That constant gank fest is simply non existent. The world is large, pk's are few. I do not think there is any real griefer left. Community is friendly and helpful, imho much better then europa.

    I've always been on Europa and made some great friends and seen some truly great community demonstrated right from my very first days, I've also been a Europa news reporter and attended various events for that as well.

    Imho you can't beat the Europa community however I haven't met the siege community as yet. Think due to having more than one account I may make a crafter and pvm template and see how it goes.

    I gated to my house and POP, there's heavenless greeting me with a heavy crossbow and a pretty GM made crate blocking my steps. I made it inside easily and had a wonderful banter with him over Chat.:heart:

    How dare he, a small barely seen stain on the underwear of life, take a swipe at ME. Imagine!:coco:

    Good Times:thumbup:

    Hrm. He isn't red so I don't think he is a pk. You're faction?
     
  26. NJ_Bain

    NJ_Bain Guest

    I'm going to take your advice and start a new thread....I see a lot of responses to the idea......and fyi, as one of the quest items for hunting pirates, you have a chance of getting 1 of 8 pieces of an orc pirate ship deed when ever you turn in a pirate alive. More info at the high seas link on the stratics main page under pirate quests. I would have put in the link but this is my second post and you need at least 3 to post a link.

    The only thing that I'm concerned about is the cost.....I've got the funds to pay for most of the Gargoyle ship but maintaining it what cost $$$.....Plus I lack the skills needed to create cannons, ammo etc..etc..considering you are limited to one character on the SP shard....and soul stones cost $$$ as well..

    Meh...I'll see what I can come up with on the new thread....thanks for the support!!

    Well if something changed I remember seeing reds as red regardless if they were faction or warred through a guild. He shows as orange to me.

    Does orange take precedent over red now?
     
  29. NJ_Bain

    NJ_Bain Guest

    I'm game.....I started a new thread on the matter. I almost have enough gold to buy a gargoyle style ship. But I will either need to start up crafting skills or find a vendor for the needed materials...(i.e. powder charges, ammo and wood, cloth and ingots for repairs.)

    As far as a pirate killing you, its not likely....NPC pirates are normally around west of yew and south of jhelom, that general area and pirates themselves do not have mage qualities.....although they do run with orc mages....On the other hand, there may be PK pirates out there, but I haven't seen one yet.(Note I said YET.....lol)

    Look at the new thread and tell me what you think....

    How much do those new boats cost?

    And if I didn't give a crap about boat combat, and just wanted a sweet ass ride to upgrade from my crappy old school boats, do they require resources then?

    Can they be traded when dry docked ?
     
  31. NJ_Bain

    NJ_Bain Guest

    Good question on both. I know the Gargoyle style is 600,000k and is durable....I don't know the price of the new Britannia ship but it has a bigger hold and 9 cannons.....the Tokuno ship is less than the Gargoyle and considered a fishing boat....and the Orc style ship has the best cannon damage yet unless someone knows more about the Britannia ship and can only be obtained by collecting 8 pieces of the orc ship deed by turning in CAPTURED pirates...not dead....Bigglesby will only give you extra stuff if the pirate is captured alive......I'll update the prices as soon as I find out unless someone beats me to it.....

    Don't forget to wear your "Big Majik Flippers"!!

    Don't want someone (e.g., Garfield doing his bazillionth SoS) to find you way out there looking like this:


    "Help me! Help me!
    My arms hath grown tired from carrying this weapon and I am sinking!"

    Agreed lol. The dumbing down of education is 100% intentional by the way...



    Anyways so if someone were to buy me a tokuno ship I'd gladly give them q check to compensate them for the deed. I can't buy it cause I'm rd as far as I know. I haven't got the expac yet so can't confirm. :(
