    What about adding server births that spawn in random locations at random times to prevent scripting..could hold a poll as to what you want to see spawn every 6 months and then they are changed

    Give them a title (Server Birth) to gauge authenticity ..could be a fun side thing for hunters to do and even the lucky adventurer

    No, the rares collectors have more than enough pixel crack and the Devs have for more important things to do.

    While I don't think server birth rares should be what people find I think the idea of random non static things that appear periodically great idea. Id say make it something like the ole wrong mages tower. Or random things like that. I have thought that the game needs some stuff to encourage continued exploration, especially in the wilderness that is basically full of nothing now a days.

    It reminds me of one time back in like... early 99 im guessing, I was in wind just wandering around because I hadn't been there many times, and I walked back into the Inn and started looking around in boxes, and one of them was locked and had a trap. After a few deaths I managed to get it open and to my surprise there were like 200 of each reg and 4 skull candles. This was before doom, so a skull candle was a super super rare and I was just flabbergasted. I still have no clue as to why those items were there, but it was sure exciting to find them.

    I love deco stuff, but enough of the extreme make me rich quick items. I would like more grass & snow tiles, I'd like to see them added to a elemental like the snow, water, or even add a new grass, or weed elemental, to the group. Then randomly have the tiles spawn on them.

    While I do agree not to reinstate "old" server births to the mix perhaps mind you there are some nifty items in shops and odd places that could have a double spawn for pick up.. not a ton of things mind you but in all areas of UO lands you just have to look around and notice them. Now this I would support. Rares collectos have over the years taken a hit on their precious items and as a member of this community I would like to see what we have remain so. If the Dev's need a hand in picking out things there is plenty of us who have things over the years we have seen in shops that would have apeal to the masses of trinket hunters out there. A few months back infact before we lost our dear friend GrimmOmen in a post to him there were many ideas for us in the pics in that post.

    You want to revitalze Fel? Simple, spawn random overpower weapons and armors with 2 week life spans and only in fel. These items can be insured and worn during any type of pvp or pvm but disappears in 2 weeks. Having it spawn in fel will make us the Trammies go there and hunt them down which in return will give the reddies a chance to wack us. :)

    What a lovely Idea Manticore!
    I can see it.. like the things you turn in for rep place them in boxes and crates around the land in random places in fel.... make them hunt for them! Brilliant. Unsellable on vendors mind you and once you pick it up its yours ... nontransferable....(like the named talismans) and i do like the 2 weeks timer maybe 30 days might be more easer to code in but still a doable time for players

    No it won't. It will just give more stuff for the Fel players to sell in Luna at blotted prices.

    Like I said make it nontransferable and non venderable. like the tali's that have ownership titles these cant be used by anyother player but that one who first puts it on. Would make it a tad bit more easer to not have it exploited.

    Hehe, the Chivalry and Magery set to Atl standard price?

    Slither set to low-population standard price ?

    I was Selling/trading slithers on Atl for 165-175m each fairly regularly, I stopped selling them, the day Mesanna spoke to us at Moonglow inn on Atlantic.

    Now I'm holding onto my slithers until Duped items can't be put on vendors anymore. (Thought it was supposed to be in Pub-81 btw? I didn't see it in the pub notes.)

    cazador you can forget tryin to post any ideas here on stratics,its full of grumpy people that dont even play the game,they just read the boards to hate on people, I think your idea is a good one. Always thought that the thief items should have been the same way(spawn in random locations instead of the same item ,in same spot ,timed so the same person gets the next one)

    Ya no man it's all good I probably would NEVER use it or even collect it I just thought it would add another aspect of this game that has long expired from the past when people would stay up all night have huge server wars and then wait till server came up and the mayhem would begin again fighting I've the server births in hope someone was silly enough not to pick it up on a stealther and not book and get it looted..but I guess the greed shows of people who currently have these items..it's funny though I never said to have spittoons or any of the old rares spawn I was just saying for something new..not replace the old with the new or have the old spawn again

    What would be wrong with a brand new player killing a mongbat only to discover a secret treasure box that, that sneaky little mongbat swiped from some NPC filled with his valuables..I think nothing

    Or a innocent traveler making his way to shame on foot because he lacks the skills to recall and happens to walk into a gypsy camp along the way and since he was the first traveler of the day find an non static unlocked cauldron..apparently most do

    :next:
