    Well, there's a long list of bugs, but this one really caught my eye, and I think the dedicated EC developers should know:

    Under some circumstances, when a Spellweaver with Gift of Life dies, he still can walk anywhere he likes as a ghost and get resurrected there.

    This accidentally happened to me last night when fighting the Slasher of Veils. I think it can happen during situations where lag is possible, and where you have a lag spike right when you die.

    I thought you should know, as this could lead to a serious exploit. However, I have not found a way to reliably reproduce this yet. It just happens sometimes.

    (P.S.: It happened to me 2 times during the beta, and I reported it back then. But well, you know that almost none of the reported bugs were fixed during beta. Most of them are still around today.)

    I can't think of a big exploit for it either, but I'm sure the people who like to ruin the game will find something.

    But I have seen this several times, this one person did it at a spawn about 3-4 times. (I'm shocked they were PVPing in the EC though?)

    By the way, I am convinced that this issue is connected to the bug that the EC goes into auto-walk mode randomly, especially during lag spikes.

    (Auto-walk is usually triggered by right-click-hold, left-click.)

    Uhm... unless you run speedhack on the old client the EC is about 10% faster than the old client, so I find it much better to pvp in the new client :)

    Just a note: Not everyone who prefers 2d runs scripts, speedhacks, or even pvp's. Some us just dont feel like learning a whole new game after 6,7, or 10 years. So it pretty obvious what your trying to pass as fact is merely opinion.

    Wow...guess I have a bad memory on this bit. I thought in the 2d client one could walk around dead with gift of life? Heck, on public houses I will use it regularly to get inside those public IDOCs with pesky *locked* doors. If only I had a key...

    *sighs and remembers the old days*.

    It is a fact that EC runs 10% faster than Legacy :)
    Iam not saying everyone playing Legacy is speedhacking if thats what you thought :)

    Not to be snarky, but:

    Is UO the only game you've ever played on the PC or console in the last 6, 7, or 10 years?

    Seriously, you have to learn a new play style with every new game that is released, every new iteration of the franchise. Why should learning the EC for UO be any different than switching between the controls/paradigms of Diablo vs. Diablo 2 vs. Diablo 3?

    If it's nostalgia, then that's fine...weak, but fine. But don't tell us that learning a new client is somehow 'difficult' for you.

    Speed perhaps...but the spellplay is horrid. I would prob return to the EC IF the devs made the spellplay suitable for pvp. (as compared to using target query in UO assist)
     
  10. This happens from time to time in Classic Client as well. I personally think it is stupid that you can't run a ways before you ressurect, because if you died somewhere, it obviously isn't safe enough to res there. There is a small percentage of the time when you can res with zero life and have enough time to bolt off without getting res killed by whatever killed you previously. Same goes with Gem of Salvation. You should be able to run for 30 seconds or so. I can see now that people can get into houses, which means they should recode house doors, and any other door should be able to walk through. But if you want to exploit it, just use sacrifice virtue??

    Just make it so ghosts can open up doors! If they are accessed appropriately they wont be able to go in! Ghosts can use objects...

    Actually it is. I have crippling arthritis, and setting up crap is a pain, literally. And yes, I dont care for other pc games.
    How's that for snarky?
