The recent changes have been pretty good. I am pleasantly surprised. here's a couple long standing issues that may warrant a closer look: Blue bards discording Blue pets in Fel. This tactic leaves a tamer absolutely no choice but to leave, when the bard is sitting in guard zone. The bard should flag gray to the pet owner. There is simply no argument against this need. They are performing a debilitating attack against the pet. End of story. Chaining concussion blows by dexers The preferred dexer template now is the concussion blow dexxer. Due the extreme amounts of Val and Verite hammer duped, and the weapons allowed onto each server that they created, this special/weapon/template needs some care. The issue can be attacked from several different avenues but we all need something done about this. It has gotten well beyond insanity. New Faction items If these items are allowed to be used in regular PvP, this is going to absolutely blow up in your faces. I have not seen such a massive train wreck situation looking for a place to happen in quite some time. You either need to rethink them completely or force a change to the basic platforms of PvP in UO. If you are thinking about moving all free PvP to Factions, then that is a base change to the core of UO. If that is what has to happen, well...so be it. Know this; A lot of folks love to PvP but not play in factions. Either way, do not allow these items out into the free PvP world without a core change that allows every player a chance to have these items. The imbalanced these items will cause to the PvP world is simply too staggering to even think of.
