    With Halloween pumpkin spawn coming to an end tomorrow, I am looking for the next profitable solo grind. Pumpkins were great! I managed to get a full set of all the masks including 3 full sets of Mesanna's. I was also able to get several extra Mesanna masks that I was able to sell on my vendor from 15 Mil up to 40 Mil.

    Currently I have been working level 3 of Covetous with my tamer. I tried 2260 luck suit and got a lot of nothing. I have now dropped my suit to 1300 luck after reading a couple people say 1000 to 1300 seems to be the best for drops and loot. I am not seeing it just yet.

    So, back on track. I wanted to see what people do to make money in the game now days. Of course, buying and reselling, that's a given. I would like to know what Solo Grind makes you the best bank. I look forward to your replies.

    Zero or negative luck is best. Luck and the new loot system do not work well together.

    I'm guessing the demand for the upcoming +5 stat scroll will be considerable for the next 6 months, depending on the RNG drop rate...

    0 Luck used to work when Shame started but they nerfed that. No with 0 luck I get nothing but crap not even worth unraveling.

    When I do get bored enough to run shame I run 1300-1500 luck it seems to bode well I've pulled a few 10 ssi jewls with good mods and even a 1/4 blank ring which was great so I don't know it's basically a grind I don't know if it's because of my luck or not..hope that semi helps lol

    cazador: where exactly in shame?

    And when I get bored I do the same in Covetous :) Got the Human Hephaestus yesterday - after another one the week before. Nice solo-grind, when nothing else is going on :)

    Something I have noticed is luck is weird the way it works it doesn't work for every kill its random but a good way to tell if you've gotten it is judge the gold drop normally if a mob gives you 500 gold and then u get that kill and the gold drop is 620 your luck has worked I could be wrong but that has been my observation

    When that happens I always seem to get better drops...could be coincidence but

    I'm pretty sure the devs mentioned from the beginning luck does not effect gold, but who knows...

    Earn more money in RL and then use JUST ONLY US$1000 and buy thousands of millions in UO which you could spend on your necessities easily, this will be the fastest way honestly. Of course if you would want to buy tons of rares, maybe something like US$10,000???

    and US$1000 is really not money with the inflation these days LOL

    1. I buy resources from the trade stalls in new mag, then double the price and stick them on a Luna vendor.

    2. Farm champ spawns for the powerscrolls and sell on a vendor. - can end in tears if/when the reds roll up.

    3. Farm peerless bosses with my guild and sell the arties on a vendor.

    4. Build a stealther, camp out at the champ spawns then steal all the gold once it drops.

    Do the arties drop anywhere on level 3? or only certain areas.

    My money maker is corgel I use a protector and I end up with 8-14 sots and at min a corgel handbook or sash every trip. I average dieing about 1-2 times a run but I keep the protector on the boat to rez. Corgel loves to loot so I keep all my bandies and pots in little stacks.

    I found this post intriguing. What template are you using for your combatant with Corgul?

    I recently moved from the East to West Coasts of the US. As such, I've been working on getting a foothold on Napa Valley. I find that just about everywhere I go I am solo. In fact, the only place I've seen anyone is at Miasma. I've been working Navrey recently as I am trying to get some Tangles to outfit my guys (and sell for a crimson). I could use some Corgul sashes if there was a way to solo that boss (with a second account for rezs).

    I use a melee or ranged wammie (I have both) with Healing & Resist to kill everything solo. you just can't use curse weapon on some things (corgul). Armor ignore spam till it's dead =D

    I was under the impression a Sampire wouldn't work on Corgul because life leech is reversed?

    A Protector is someone who has the Justice Virtue, when you "Protect" someone (use the justice virtue on another player) you potentially double your scroll-drops from champ spawns, corguls, & harrowers.

    So basically if you protect someone with Knight of Justice you get 1 scroll for every scroll your protected player gets.

    The protector should NOT get looting rights on the champ/boss or you would end up with less over-all SoT/P-Scrolls.
