    Downside to making it sell like a reagent, It starts at 20. :( They were at 500 in quantity on TC. Not really an issue though, I imagine it'll be at 999 almost constantly for weeks. :p

    Omg and only one alchemist there happy birthday holy cow!
     
  6. I bought all 20 of the Saltpeter. It's been about 20 min and it hasn't restocked. I'm the only person on the island too!

    I don't see how stocking 20, so infrequently, is a good thing.

    lol

    They changed it to the reagent style because the price kept going up. I guess they forgot reagent style means limited amount to be sold.

    The only Alchemist that sells Saltpeter is located in the new Docktown.

    Yeah, its up to 80 as of right now on GL. :(

    This needs to be sold by EVERY alchemist in the game in quantities like the potions are for cannons to be even remotely viable as anything other than ship decor.

    Saltpeter

    "Saltpeter may be purchased from the alchemist at Sea Market."

    I camped there for 30 minutes and saw no saltpeter. Did anybody find some?

    Re: Saltpeter

    That makes sense as a bug. Alchemist starts with the saltpeter but the bug does not restock him right. Oh well they will fix the restock some day.

    Re: Saltpeter

    It will increase to 999 if it acts like other reagents (I think it does!) you just need to be there when it respawns.

    I'm still baffled why it isn't craftable if they want it 'rarer', or on every alchemist NPC if they want it 'common'...

  21. Napa is up to 180 spawning per spawn.

    I was able to buy at 12:00 noon, then at 12:38. Hope that helps. I have bought 580 so far.

    So the new expansion hits, people run out to do the new stuff... and all end up standing in front of a vendor for hours because vital materials are only sold on one NPC in the game in small quantities.

    How was this deemed acceptable in the first place? This is one of those questions like "Who besides scripters was expected to do community collections?" that no EA staff member will ever touch because it's indefensible.

    Thank you, it's appreciated.

    Having said that, I now have to ask how on earth this happened? We told you guys about this in beta. Repeatedly. There are still a number of threads with posts saying that this would be a MAJOR problem on the shards if it was left as is. And you still left it. You gotta listen!

    Satlpeter where can i find it?

    All other items can be acquired either through purchasing it regularly at shops or can be made. Not sure why saltpeter had to be so special that it can only be found in the sea market. Why not make it accessible to all store alchemists or better, an alchemist creation. If it's exclusive just to the sea market, please just make it an unlimited supply so that everyone can use their boats and cannons, not just a select few who are hording this item up.

    Thank you Messena!

    Sadly though it is not enough, I have for 6 hours how tried to get some salpeter and cannot get one.


    Hopefully there is a better fix for this issue soon! I want to fight me a pirate and my guild wants to have some ship to ship combat!
     
  33. So I take it there's no more alchys showing up huh?

    Going to the Fel emporium, killing all the blue NPC's and trying to kill my friend, who was there buying for me probably isn't the best way to go about it. Just sayin' :)
     
  35. Well I guess that's another expansion down the drain

    Yeah epic fail on the whole saltpeter thing.

    people standing around waiting to buy every single piece? so nobody gets to do anything on their boats cuz of 3 ppl who stand there all day buying all the saltpeter on the shard.

    this will need a fix, and quick.

    Thanks.

    Neat.

    Doesn't solve what's going on. Howabout selling saltpeter at *every* NPC alchemist in UO. Yay. Problem solved. Having it for sale only at the emporium doesn't add "mystique".. only frustration.

    Hey Devs! Can you have those vendors selling saltpeter restock more often than once an hour!

    FOR CRYING OUT LOUD! WE'RE SUSPOSED TO HAVE FUN WITH THE CANNONS! NOT SIT BY VENDORS HOPING WE"RE THE ONE TO GET THE ONCE AN HOUR RESTOCK OF SALTPETER!

    Who thought that brainfart up?

    Still just one Alchemist on Lake Austin's sea market, Trammel.

    It's bought up to 999, but since the stuff weighs 1 stone each (another oversight, devs? Or, meant to discourage buying more than you can carry), after splitting 750 between myself and 2 alliance members, I gave the last quarter of the pile to someone who showed up looking for some, 10 minutes after it was bought out.

    All calm down about salpeter. Mesanna has placed new alchemists at the Sea Market. They still are camped by a certain guild on my shard so you have no chance on buying some. But just wait 5 days and thins will calm down. Soon there will be enough salpeter for everyone.

    GL has 3 alchemists and they are camped, and have been ALL DAY.

    The few people I know who bought the booster aren't happy with the fact that they can't actually USE their shiny new cannons.

    Saltpeter needs to be an unlimited supply on all alchemist NPCs shard-wide. There is no reason to restrict it to the sea market, unless annoyance is now 'fun.'

    And yeah, this was mentioned in beta as an issue with all the other bugs that mysteriously managed to get past the crack QA team.:thumbdown:

    They should simply have made saltpeter like gems, spawn in batches of 500 and instantly respawns when bought.

    This is 100% correct, I can't believe they didn't think this out before releasing it.

    Yes or more stacks per vendor like the faction reagent vendors have two reagent stacks each vendor, i think it should be possible for 5 stacks salpeter per vendor ;)

    Let everyone have fun with the canons please! This is also the worst bug i ever seen in an addon!
