Shadowlord Manifestations - halfday intervals??

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Eyes of Origin, Jul 10, 2009.

  1. I was just wondering if we could get some clarification on when exactly the "halfday intervals" are? Today they spawned right after we came up on Origin from getting the publish, are they going to spawn around the same time every day? every 12hrs? at noon shard time?

    Where did they spawn? I would assume it would be twice daily, so if server up it would be 12hours ish later.

    It can be UO days. 1 UO day = 2 real hours.

    Interesting locations. You would have thought with 3 appearances that it would be one on each island. Most likely with the halfday intervals, it is UO time not real world time. Going back to the Grim Reaper halloween event, Vandguard Cove invasion, and several other spawn events, if you had a clock you could pretty much tell when the event/spawn would start.

    I have not been paying all that much attention to the Shadow Lords.

    Are they Pet Safe as in do they cause a pet to go wild?

    Is the tactic to beat them pretty much just get a gang and pile on?
     
  14. We havent seen anymore since yesterday after the publish. We checked the same spots and different spots last night and throughout today. It could be that we are missing them and others are killing them before we find them.

    The ones we killed yesterday were killed using an archer and cu sidhe for the 1st and 2nd ones, the 3rd one was killed with a cu sidhe, evs and a fencer.
    I'm not sure what a dragon would do or if the manifestations would have a neg effect on the pet. Cu's are doing massive damage though.

    Once you use the blackrock to break the shield around them, they are fairly easy to kill with just 2 or 3 ppl. The blackrock only works once tho unlike the shadowlords we saw in Moonglow. Once the shield is broken the blackrock has had no effect.

    Thanks for the Info and the Blackrock is not consumed when cast and theoretically can be used on a different Shadow Lord? Or does it just not work anymore period.

    What he means is that you can not use multiple pieces of black rock on the same shadowlord, more or less confirming what Draconi had posted before the publish notes.

    Duing the moonglow invasion is was 25K damage for the first sue of blackrock one and then it dropped way down to 10K after that and even less for the third and so forth.

    Atleast thats what I remember

    Righteous.
     
  18. Once you use a piece, its gone.

    I know how it was, but I am stating how it is on Origin, or at least how it will be on all the other shards. :p I am not sure about the exact numbers, but the spell did half damage to it, so if it was already at half you still only did 10k. This time it will be used to remove the shield they have, I assume the shield will be much like the berserker shields so you wont be able to do more than 1-3 damage until someone casts the spell (never tried so not sure about that)

    Again thanks for the information.
     
  23. The blackrock does an intial damage of 1k hps and yes, breaks the shield.. until the shield is broken with the blackrock, nothing you do damages these things.

    Please tell me I don't have to quickly recite that three times and click my ruby red detective bootheels together??
     
  27. I sure as hell hope they're not thinking about doing a Zento invasion. Outlying areas are just fine, but they need to leave Zento alone.
     
  28. Only if you want to go home :D

    Seems to me that they should either be much harder to kill or spawn more times... Im only saying this cause origin seems to be a dead shard so the 6 that spawn in a day might be fine but when it comes to atl theres gonna be like 20 or more people there and if they all cast 1 blackrock then things gonna be dead in 10 seconds.

    I guess that's what happens when you insist on living on a crowded shard and what everyone who pays to play would experience if some people got their wish to fold all the shards into just a few crowded ones.

    Blackrock only works ONCE, so...20 people wont get to cast it only 1 will.

    Of course if everyone was on a dead shard then there really wouldn't be any dead shards. On this note I would like to point out that I enjoy playing an MMO not a single player game.... In other words I play for interaction with other people. >.>

    But don't you know increased interaction demotes rarity? ;P Hahaha

    Well I have chars on Origin, I tried to find these guys and couldn't so I guess I'm going to need a game clock or something :eek:P
     
  33. :( I like my "dead" shard. At least I know on my "dead" shard I have a chance at killing these things and getting something. Origin only looks "dead" to those who dont play here, but even on Origin the manifestations are dead and gone before most ppl know that they are even there. I have only seen 4 since the publish went live for us and 3 of those were right after server went up from getting published.
    So maybe they should spawn more often on all the shards. Just because Atl and some of the other shards have that many people doesnt mean they should get it to spawn more often than everyone else. If you play a shard like Atl, Chessy, Pac, etc you know what to expect and know its going to be harder to get something. If you dont want to fight 20+ ppl for a chance, maybe you should consider moving to a "dead" shard, but then again, if everyone did that, it wouldnt be so dead anymore.. not sure I like that idea.

    GvP, apparently they are spawning at server up which would be 8am Atl time, but goodluck beating the home teams :)

    Thanks Eyes; I just want to see one :) ... if they spawn that seldom then I don't want to take from the people of Origin (not my main shard, but I PvPd there awhile)

    And Oceania is way more dead than Origin :/

    How wonderful for you that you enjoy the odds of one person out of 20 or 200 getting a shot at something. Isn't it just marvelous that you thrive on so much competition? I guess anyone else who doesn't should just cancel their subscription now because they don't deserve to be playing UO and just get in the way of everyone else. After all, isn't the overriding theme of UO these days, "If you don't like the way it is, just quit because then there's more for ME?"
     
  36. hehe I know there are places in game that are worse than Origin population wise, but I dont mind being on a dead shard. Means I can do what I want when I want :p hehe
    But by all means, if you do come across one feel free to join in or even go to the bank and see if there are a few ppl on who would be willing to come kill it with you. We dont mind sharing ;)

    Lmfao. Entertainment is all I see this thread becoming from here. If it was "more for me" then I would be more like you and say "everyone play a dead shard so you can have everything you want" How can you mock something you are actually promoting? If you enjoy playing alone so much why do you play a game intended to promote Multiple players?

    Because I enjoy playing with other people is no excuse for you to attack my enjoyment, also I could care less about "getting something" nothing in this game is worth the trouble of playing somewhere that there is a 5% chance you will actually see another player. I am not competing with the other players, I am playing with the other players, just because you are "needy" should not downfall what others enjoy, let alone what the game was created for.

    You should be glad there are people who play this game for its intended purpose, it is an MMO after all, if everyone played like you there would be no dead shards since everyone would play everywhere and just toggle what shard they were on that day based on activity, that means everyone in game would be competing for everything at the same time because they would just keep switching around servers if they ran into another player.

    I did not attack your statement in the slightest, I pointed out the obvious, it would be wise of you to do the same. If everyone played on a "dead shard" then there would be no "dead shards" and it would be more or less the same as merging the shards, which you advocated against. And pointing out that I play the game for the intended purpose is simple. I play to play with other people, not to play solo. If this disturbs you in some manner, then I will only get a smile for in the end it does not bother me.

    Did I ever say everyone should play on dead shards so they can get more of stuff? Learn to read.
     
  39. Ok before you two turn this into a fight... it was me who said I would rather play a smaller shard with the chance of getting something, jeez. At the same time though, Origin is my home shard, its where I started out when I started UO and I stay because I like the people who are still here. But, I've seen what events are like on shards like Atl, its nuts and honestly, just going to these events lags me like you wouldnt believe. So, I'm ok with there only being 6-10ppl at an event and competeing against them.

    I still think if they increase how many times the shadowlords are going to spawn, they need to do it across the board and not just for certain shards.

    The only reason I even stepped into this thread is because it is discussing an issue that's a little bit of a sore point for me: the top three attackers get the goods from a single thing that only spawns at predetermined intervals and apparently, in well-known locations, and apparently only one person has the opportunity to cast a spell that will more than likely put them in the group of top three attackers.

    With an event structured like this, why should anyone who has less than uber skills and/or weapons even bother to show up? Every twelve hours (or whatever the interval is) there will always be someone else camped there that will outperform you. And if you think the situation is unfair and say something about it, then you're told that you are just a "needy" person.

    I happen to think it's not a good situation and so I'm saying something about it.

    I have no plans to go because I frankly do not [edited to add here "do not"] give a damn about the rewards. But perhaps someone else who DOES care about the rewards and wasn't playing last summer when you had a better chance to get the cloaks in Moonglow DOES care and wants a cloak or two. With the timing set up like this and if they happen to play on a shard like Atlantic because that is where everyone suggests that new or returning players should go, I don't see how they have any realistic chance of getting one of the cloaks by participating in this event. They might as well just forego attending the event and go out and farm gold and hope that eventually they'll have enough gold to go buy what they want from someone else.

    Okay, blast away. Yes, I'm some greedy needy soul who just can't wait to go camp [edited here to delete the word "out"] the Shadowlords on every shard I play because I intend to grab ALL that I can and go sell them for millions.

    Sheesh...............yes, that's me to a "T." Every day I wake up trying to figure out how I can best everyone else in UO and make billions of gold. Screw everyone else, I want it all. Can't wait to stuff every bank box on every shard and every container in every house with event rares, EM handouts, artifacts, and endless checks for gold. Everyone had just better get out of my way because I will be miserable until I own it all.

    Just read a few of these posts and have to correct the armagedon spell confusions.

    Armageddon spell will do 1/3 or 1/4 damage of the remaining HP a shadowlord has. So if you do it right at the start you do massive damage! After that other people can do the spell do but it will do reducing amounts of damage as the SL's HP drops and drops. Essentially making it useless after the first 2 attempts...but still useable if you so wish.

    Have you tested this on Test or Origin? Origin is reporting this to be false...the first blackrock does 1k of damage about and removes the shield...other blackrock and Armageddon castings do nothing for damage on the same Shadowlord..

    Who now is right?

    I think thats old information for the ethereal shadowlords that appeared in void Moonglow.

    These Manifestations are appearing in Tokuno. Armagedon only works once, to lower their shield, and it does alot less damage, only 1k.

    I tested this on TC, posted here
     
  44. *shrugs* maybe thats how it is suppose to work and whats happening on Origin is a bug? I'm not really sure, but as of right now the spell is only working once when it is intially cast. Considering how easy these things are to kill, it would be silly if the blackrock worked more than once.

    This is wrong, it is how it worked in moonglow, it is not how it will work now. It worked like this against the "ethereal shadow lords" but we are now faced with manifestations of the shadow lords, and the shadow lords themselves.

    The way it is working on Origin is as intended. :)
