    Let's just rattle some ideas around to spice up Doom. I know a new expansion was just launched, but we don't want dungeons to sit dormant for years as many Fel ones did, add some new content! Here are some of my suggestions:

    -Cursed arti drops off every DF, while smaller bosses have a 50% chance per room.
    -INTRODUCE NEW ARTIFACTS. It was done once with the dryad bow, why not focus on some new items, I was thinking....

    ARMOR. What armor pieces were given through the first set of artifacts?
    Tunic of fire, CRAP
    Holy Knights Breastplate, WORTHLESS
    Midnight Bracers, WERE useful, but since they changed them, CRAP.
    Jackals Collar, was good, with all the cursed artis no more.
    Legs of bane, useless.
    Gauntlets of nobility, crap.

    So introduce some new, nice armors, something like...
    MR2
    8LMC
    20 Stam increase
    15/10/13/10/15

    Or even, and this is a very loose idea: 6 mod imbuable items. Very rare, such as old artifacts were, a top tier item that wll take many, many rounds, but a blank item which could be any weapon, or piece of armor, which could be imbued with 6 properties...such as a shortspear with 6 slots one could imbue with 500% intensity, such as..
    40% hld
    40% lightning
    20%ssi
    40%di
    10%HCI
    40 mana leech
     
  2. Not bad ideas, the 6 mod blank is an interesting idea... even a blank 5 slot with 500 intensity might not be bad...

    And WTF is up with most of the old arty/marties having poor fire resist. I know everyone was running around with those leggings of embers, but c'mon. The resists on alot of arties is just weak. Especially with imbuing now, a lot of arties are just relics waiting to be unraveled.

    I would LOVE to see cursed artifact drops from the guantlet. I've got a boner just thinking about it right now!

    That's just because you have repressed issues with fathers in the dark.

    I think cursed arties off the guanlet would be cool

    or make the creatures there drop important ingredients for imbuing, even. If the rarer and more difficult ones had a decent chance to drop there, bingo, hunters

    If you do encourage traffic, then it would be nice to see daemon bones get lighter and/or easier to get so that it's easier to get those gold skulls.

    I agree with pretty much everything said in this thread.

  10. I think this was mentioned in another thread. Deamon bones are the same bones for the mysticism reagent and apparently have been lowered in weight.

    Wulf, care to chime in, I think you were discussing this with someone in another thread, no? [And I know you'll chime in anyways]

    It was discussed, but there was either no answer, or I got sidetracked by something shiny and didn't notice the answer.

    I'm at work now and can't check, but I think they just lowered the daemon bone weight. It's either that, or they created two completely separate items with no way to tell them apart aside from the weight.

    ...which isn't unprecedented in UO history.

    It'd be pretty simple to test. Just go to Doom, kill the first thing you see, and check the weight of the bones it drops.

    Good ideas.

    Khaldun is in desperate need of a re-work also. Does anyone even go there?

    Not since they fixed/nerfed the puzzle boxes.

    "Ok guys, people have been complaining about the Khaldun boxes being unusable for a while because they raise to the ceiling, let's fix them!"
    "But that sounds hard. How about we just make them not have anything worthwhile so that nobody wants to use them?"
    "Brilliant! But how will we get people to find out that they suck now?"
    "We can stick the boxes to the floor again, so people will find out the loot sucks, so they won't want us to stick them back to the floor."
    "...I like it."
