    Loots good or bad depending on your views. About 1 in 50 items (reguardless of what low end things your kill) yield 1 nice useable item, and by nice I mean having usable/stable mods and no negs. It might be a straight out nice item like a gargoyal neckless with 95% resist and 25% LRC or (from the imbuer side of me) a ring with 4 MR or 110 luck... with no negs. Main reason I'm doing this grind is to get a suppily of relic frags... and that I am. Trying to figure out the new #'s for some of the new abilities that weapons and armor have is unnerving. Someone said the EC has the ability to tell you what it'll give resource wise, but I use the CC so oh well.

    I havent done the biggest things that yield the Legendary stuff, but ive looked at a few of the items from ppl that do. They too have the negs and whatever that make um crappy. So if you want the perfect one suited to you, your gonna have to play the farming game. If seen the pics of items on other shards so I know sometimes you can win with getting all the right mods. I got a boomarang thats balanced and figured I could chug a pot with a shield, cant. Also want to point out you can meditate after being paralized by a monster... which is wierd.

    Absolute kudos goes out to the behavior from very one down there. Wiether it was just a friendly chat with someone or a PK encounter, everyones been really cool. Imbued 90% armor just isnt uber loot in peoples eyes it seems.

    I've got a bag of stuff growing for casting mostly. Dunno what to charge for it. I mean some of it I know will give a frag or 2 and thats another question... whats the price of frags at? The first day in shame I ran up to whatever stalls were buying frags and sold them the 27 I had and made over a million. Now no stalls are buying or listing frags... go figure. Now I have 150 frags and average 11-20 frags a 30 min farming trip. Pricing is unstable as well, esp when I can make a complete noob casting suit in 4 pieces. And all my old good casting rings and stuff already on my vendors has turning to garbage as well.

    So about the third day I went and did a few T-maps. I kept the resources and special items... Didn't even bat a eye at the chest loot, Shame makes treasure chest loot feel like your looting a headless. I've restocked my vendors with lots of scrolls and recipes and ect from T-map chests. Located on the top NE side of Mag.

    I think they should leave it as it is. Might spark more interest in this long forgotten game. UO is here to stay. Just look at other game track records for getting shut down! You cant even log into camelot any more along with some other games. Then theres games that consolidated servers so much and still have less population then UO. (aion) The only two contenders these days are WoW and UO and you never hear anything bout UO cause they dont do actual expansions anymore. Could you imagine a midnight release party at wal mart for a new UO expansion? That would bring people out of the woodwork!:mf_prop:

    I wouldn't really call UO a contender. Its a survivor but no way is it a contender in this kind of market today. But thats just my opinion.

    And when you say Camelot, I assume you mean Dark Ages of Camelot. Which is still going.

    I think UO could return to contender status if they would do a GOOD job of upgrading graphics and then promote the ever-loving kaka out of housing and no-classes. I despise being locked into a class-system, I really enjoy the freedom of mixing and matching what-ever skills I want.

    When I first started siege I had Fencing, Tactics, Magery, Smithing, Mining, Tinkering, and something else. . . I was predominantly a blacksmith, but loved to fight things, of course these days it's a bit harder, but you can still mix and match necro/magery/mystic with a melee/archer, etc. Sky's the limit. You also don't need to 'level' your character per se to skill up in crafting. Plus you could be a crafter exclusively and never need to farm.

    I put more SoA's, pet treats, skele keys and a master skele key for 100k, and recipes on tonight. Tossed the noob worthy stuff for shame drops. 1k to 10k mostly...

    Gonna throw all the bloodwood armor away if someone doesn't purchase some of it soon. Same with the wand vendor....

    And as a reminder, I have for sale 95 different recipes, for 10 million (or 2 Soul Stones). If you ever wanted a mule and want to skip the recipe grind, then this the time. As soon as I hit the treasure chest lottery 3 times and get ALL 98 the game has, the price is going to go to 15 (and 3). All im missing is luckblade (which I've only ever seen one and I ate it), Pendant of the Magi (that I gave to Cz cause I love her... Who doesn't?), and Rasilant Bracer (that I sold to other people 3 times now). Every other Quest/Event/Drop/Reward is in the other 95.

    For the time being, I'm considering relic frags essentially worthless. I'll save what I find for my own uses, but that's all.

    I think it goes a lot deeper than that though. Now that anyone can run with a 4 piece 100% LRC suit... what are regs worth. Less naturally, but how much less? I'm looking at dropping prices (again) for regs and the necro ones aren't even good for alchemy. What's luck worth anymore?

    With a seemingly endless supply of this stuff, does it even matter that we don't have insurance here?

    Agreed on the relic value. When I know for sure that the ease in farming them going to be there for good, ill probably sell um for 5k each.

    Regs are needed for my pot vendor, start stocking 10k amounts of Nightshade then plz.

    Good point about insurance. Even most uber arti's are now stupid because SOMETHING in some combination will give you the same thing as that one item does. Inhance pot, SSI, Def, Hit, Spell, Luck, Leech... everything can be copy'd or made somehow. And imbueing with frags fills in most gaps. All the new "titled" mods (and stuff on jewels) only opened the doorway for a new skill and possibly a race. Im thinking something thats gonna allow imbueing a extra slot and higher intensity. On the flip side it nice to see higher than player made stuff.

    Bulk regs are always a good commodity to sell. im talking like 5k or more of each. but this is my own personal opinion. People use bulk regs for alchemy and scribe which you have to burn alot to craft needed items.
