So I broke my character..

    I made my first gargoyle, decided upon a nice pvm template, discordance music mysticism focus magery spellweaving. I started the character at 50 discord and 50 mysticism. I trained mysticism for a day, got to about 95 and then decided to start working discord as I now had a semi reliable source of healing. I ate a blue discord scroll and everything went great, 50-60 discord in 15 minutes. Next day I went down to the blue beetles and tried to discord there. Everything was going fine until I killed a blue beetle I had discorded. Now I get the message, "you must wait a few moments to use another skill" no matter what I do this won't go away. I can cast mage spells, myst spells etc. I cannot use any 'blue gem' skill, such as hiding, tracking, discord.. etc. I paged a gm and after waiting 6 hours I went to bed, got an email this morning saying there was nothing wrong and the case was closed. I logged in and the same issue is going on. The character is 3 days old. I repaged today and after waiting all day to no response I decided to ask on here if anyone else has ever had this issue before?

    I have done everything I can think of in terms of trying to unstick the character. I died, changed facets, changed race, changed guild, etc etc etc. Everything has been to no avail. I assume the only recourse is to delete the character and try again. Any suggestions?

    I've gotten this before too, usually when I accidentally hit a skill macro like hide while having a pet transferred to me. Because the animal lore gump pops up during transfer, it's like using two skills at once which breaks the character. The only thing which fixes it is waiting for a GM who knows what they are doing to come fix it. I usually park the character in Luna and page, then open a second client and play on a second account.

    Try using cartography or any craft skill that opens a menu with a tool, then craft something that you can make at 0 skill, lock the skill if you don't want points stuck in it before you try. Anyhow that used to work for me, but haven't been skill locked in a few years, hope that helps.

    I know it sounds a bit wacky, but try honoring a creature (and maybe even killing it) and see if that fixes it.

    I had this error myself a while ago. I had to call a GM, but the phrase is essential to how you get help. Try write: 'My skill timer is broken, and I can not use any skill. I need help to reset it!'

    Well we fixed it by forcing a skill check, I soul stoned hiding and stealth onto the character and went to a moongate, stealthed out of it and bam fixed. I was reallly thinking I had to delete my guy but all is well now! wish I hadn't wasted the race change tokens and all but it's better then deleting and reeating scrolls.

    So it has to do with getting a pet transfered to you while using a skill? I guess my friend taming one somehow screwed it up?

    Out of interest, did you try the honor thing? I've seen this happen a few times and pretty sure that getting honor fixed it.

    I have a character that was a scribe... Until it started saying he never has the right ingredients even though he does. Anyone have a fix for this?

    If you use uoassist, recount resourses. If not, - unload it all and reload it. Its a glitch in cc at least where it says you got 100 items - but you have nothing.

    No I did not, we tried scribe and another "tool" skill. I was stuck on the countdown for skills so the only thing we could think of was to try to force the skill check. If it ever happens again I will try the honor thing, honestly by the time I got back on to see this post I had fixed it.

    I used Spell Focusing Sash, but it wouldn't work. No matter how many times I magic arrow the same target, the damage modifier wouldn't go above 70. The same sash works for other chars and other sashes don't work for me. Seems like targetting issue, anyone had something like that? I reported it on uo.com about two weeks ago, still no response.
