    Kelmo asked me very nicely last week to post the following information, which you can also find in U.Hall here in a stickied thread at the top of that forum: http://vboards.stratics.com/showthread.php?t=158094. He told me that not everyone who reads this forum is a regular visitor in the U.Hall forum.

    I will do my best to try to keep both threads updated with any new information I receive.

    * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

    I thought it might be helpful to start a thread to help connect some SA loot drops with their sources and possible uses. Please let me know if you see anything that needs to be corrected or if you have information to add. I'll try to keep the list in this post updated with any new information you provide and we'll also use it to update information posted on Stratics in more permanent locations.

    Note: As of October 9, 2009, Publish 61 added some alternative methods (i.e., crafting, questing, growing) for acquiring some of the Imbuing Ingredients. The ones that are known so far have been included below.

    Aliabeth the Tinker in the tinker shop in Royal City (Ter Mur facet) offers a quest called "A Worthy Proposition" that asks for one Elven Fletching and 10 bamboo flutes and another quest called "The Exchange" that asks for five white chocolate and one dark sapphire in exchange for valuable imbuing ingredients. Until more results are in from both of these quests, I'm reluctant to mention them as definite alternative sources for any specific imbuing ingredients. Maplestone has completed the "Worthy Proposition" quest several times to obtain daemon claws and undying flesh and "The Exchange" quest to obtain silver snake skin.

    Sliem the Fence, way up in the NW corner of the Royal City, offers a quest called, "Unusual Goods." He promises a highly sought after imbuing ingredient in exchange for one piece of crystalline blackrock and two perfect emeralds. Not sure yet of the range of rewards, but it should be imbuing ingredients plus 75 loyalty points.


    Imbuing Ingredients

    These are the high-end ingredients needed to imbue certain properties at intensities of 91-100% and to imbue properties that have no intensity (i.e., Balanced, Faster Casting, Mage Armor, Night Sight, Spell Channeling, Slayer Type, Use Best Weapon Skill, or Velocity).

    Possible Uses for "Mystery Items"

    The Publish 60 notes describe a number of new item properties on pp. 18-19 of the PDF version (http://www.uoherald.com/news/news.php?newsid=932) and you can find them on a number of the new artifacts. Perhaps many of the above items with no known use will eventually be used to imbue these properties on weapons, shields and armor?

    • Blood Drinker
    • Battle Lust
    • Damage Eater - There may be many types of "Damage Eaters," i.e., one for each "traditional" damage type, as well as one for Chaos damage and a "Damage All" type.
    • Casting Focus
    • Hit Curse
    • Hit Fatigue
    • Hit Mana Drain
    • Reactive Paralyze
    • Resonance - Again, there may be many types of Resonance: Physical, Fire, Cold, Poison, Energy, Chaos, and Kinetic.
    • Soul Charge
    • Splintering Weapon

    Map of Abyss Mini-Champ Spawn Areas and Other Points of Interest

    Below is a map showing the locations of the various mini-champ spawn areas in the Abyss, as well as the Cavern of the Discarded and some other points of interest (e.g., peerless and entrances to new Fel rule-set champ spawns).

    I hope it helps.

    *Growls at Kelmo.*

    I'll make some more maps....

    Edited to add:

    First though you have to tell me where the Underworld entrance is on Siege since you don't have a Trammel facet. Do you get in via the entrance under the volcano on the Isle of Fire the same as on the other shards (except that on those shards that entrance is in Trammel)? Or do you have to go in via the champ spawn entrances in Deceit and Hythloth? I'm thinking no to that one because then you'd have no Underworld at all....

    Too confusing!!

    *chuckles* Just when you have time...

    Siege if we can keep Tina interested we have scored a wealth of knowledge... From factions to farming. Tina has skills. Not sure about her PvP though.
