    You are using a char with wrestling right? I know my 120 wrestle mage doesn't punch very fast or hit very often vs high skill monsters/players.

    LMAO. exactly what first came to my mind.

    what a kick in the sack. the dev's really slipped a big ol turd in the pocket of the player base on this one.

    you can be consoled as this will probably be fixed in an .. ahem future publish.

    well, if it works too well, I would give it a week before there is a cry for a nerf, then they would end up nerfed to uselessness.

    If you hold a spellbook/bare handed and no shield it proc. (more wrestle/eval the better the proc)
    If you hold a weapon or shield it does'nt proc.

    Who's the most unhappy? Those who got the bracers that don't work as advertised or the ones with carpal tunnel that didn't get the bracers? Holy moly, what a fail

    This is what happens when you can't test the crap that's coming out. Obviously none of the devs put a pair on and tried attacking anything.

    On a side note.. did they ever fix EP on armor? or is it still 1%/2%/3% uselessness?

    Since they handled the reward distribution of the quest like some stupid WoW raid loot where only a few leaves the party happy while most of the rest gets tricked into doing work for nothing?

    maybe so they can release a shield that absorbs hit spells but only if you don't have anything in your other hand ;)

    Ken and Ryu can block and "parry" without a shield. Too bad we don't have the same option here.

    So if later on someone buys em the only way they will know is if someone tells them?

    I would think those that can afford such a rare drop will either know how they work or simply lock them down in their museum.

    I tested it, it works with wrestling and as far as I know I had a shield in my hand (no spellbook) and it still worked - I'll have to retest that part to make sure

    Glad to see someone that got arms speaking. Care to enlighten on the shard, number of cures, and process that you used inorder to be top tier?

    I just tested it, no spell book but with a shield - Fireball never went off. No shield and the fireball goes off just fine. :(

    LOL.. there goes HALF the templates that might have found the sleeves useful.... Also.. is it just me or does it seem weird that Anat / Eval was listed as determining the damage for the Fireball? I guess Eval makes sense but listing it as Anat / Eval implies your "DODGE" chance & just found it amusing bc a Anat / Eval Mage will never actually hit something with his fist .... thus the fireball would never proc... (excluding 20 wrestle for being human or everyones straight up 2% chance to hit something reguardless of skill which I read somewhere...)

    Quoted from UO Guide:
    "Hit Fireball 40% damage based on Wrestling or Anatomy & Evaluating Intelligence"

    Possibly a dumb question. Are you guys testing with a spell channeling shield?

    Wow, I thought these sleeves would be a dream for a focused parry mage. And now they don't work with a shield. Boy am I glad I turned in ZERO cures.

    I'd love to say that I'm shocked to hear that team makes a item that won't work with the only temp that people would desire to use it with....but I'm not.

    As long as the fireball on the sleeves do not stack (for interruptions) with Any weapons I'm glad I have not turned in any of these "cures" either. the shield thing sounds like a bug... and I'm sure it'll be addressed... someday.

    Just seems to be one more confermation that this game is not for me. Lets keep descusing how the arms work for the few people that gained them, rather than discussing what we should or could have done to obtain them ourselves. Yes I do realize that no matter how hard we tried we wouldnt have won. Then again it would be easy to assume that those that dont care would be the same folks that dont care what it would take to win the quest. I recon people here just want to know how to use their Duped set when they go up for sale.
