    I am curious about the gargoyle racial ability to fly as fast as a galloping horse as stated in the SA part of UO herald. Will this ability be dismountable?

    Players will be able to "dismount" gargoyles that are flying around.
    -Leurocian

    Even when dismount wears off is there a casting time to initiate the flying?

    The current plan is that there will be some sort of take off delay. Similar to Ethy mounts or the Charger of the fallen.
    -Leurocian

    --

    With regular mounts you can dismount the person and poison them. Is there going to be a way to ground the flying gargoyle for longer then the dismount timer the same way as a human/elf?

    We will be looking at flying closely and comparing it with the human/elf mounts.
    -Leurocian

    It's been mentioned that Gargoyles will be able to fly as fast as a mounted person running....will they be able to dismount a person on mount...and still fly at mounted speed? If so, that will lead to a HUGE disadvantage to any non gargoyle race. How's this going to work out? can you shed some light please.

    When it comes to dismounting another player, a flying gargoyle will be subject to the same restrictions as a human or elf on a mount.

    Gargoyle players will have access to nearly all dismounting abilities and weapon styles that are presently in game. They will also experience the same limitations that the other races have. A gargoyle that attempts to dismount another player must land first and will require the same delay before being able to take flight again. In return, gargoyles may be knocked out of flight just as humans and elves may be dismounted.

    Yes and there will be a "take off" delay added similar to Ethy mounts or chargers of the fallen.

    Anyone who still doesn't understand it should be refused access to SA.

    Can gargoyle players fly over the moat west of the West Britain Bank and if they can what happens when they get dismounted? Same question for the hedge maze... :)

    This needs stickied... after a possible name change to something a tad more obvious

    Gargoyles should have to run for two screens, the whole time 'flapping' their wings by double clicking themselves.. the last object macro would work for wing flapping.. if the gargoyle is carrying too much weight, they will have to flap their wings more vigorously and run further to take 'take off'.
     
  7. But I still don't understand. It's been mentioned that Gargoyles will be able to fly as fast as a mounted person running....will they be able to dismount a person on mount...and still fly at mounted speed? If so, that will lead to a HUGE disadvantage to any non gargoyle race. How's this going to work out?

    I hope they address this soon.

    If you are seriously asking this question, then the answer is, It has been addressed.

    "Gargoyle players will have access to nearly all dismounting abilities and weapon styles that are presently in game. They will also experience the same limitations that the other races have. A gargoyle that attempts to dismount another player must land first and will require the same delay before being able to take flight again."

    But for the sake of sanity I will assume you were being sarcastic. (Tho I did answer it in case you were serious.)

    but the real questions are
    can the new gargoyle race fly? LMAO k sorry
    ..if attempting to enter a building or doorway whilst in flight..will you suffer a concussion blow and be laid out on the ground?
    and if 2 gargoyles happen to fly to close to each other!!, will there wings and horns somehow get interlocked and stuck?, making them have concussion blows and be laid out on the ground?

    No concussion blow, just quite possibly some horrible graphical oddities.
     
  14. But you STILL aren't answering my question. Which is...It's been mentioned that Gargoyles will be able to fly as fast as a mounted person running....will they be able to dismount a person on mount...and still fly at mounted speed? If so, that will lead to a HUGE disadvantage to any non gargoyle race. How's this going to work out?

    When will someone finally address this??

    (and yes...I am being sarcastic) :p

    Reformat the first post so it's a bit more readable, rename the thread "gargoyle FAQ", get it pinned.

    What..? You want a gargoyle to just float slowly around? It flies, therefore it has some speed.

    I see I will have to create NEW tactics, plans, attacks in fighting the gargoyle class. Nothings fair,.....if you haven't learned anything in life....fact: nothings fair....not in real life, not in games.

    Adapt.

    yes, enough talking about flying gargoyle :|

    there is a lot of interesting questions that awaits reply...
    for exmaple:
    gargoyle can eat while flying?
    gargoyle can fish while flying?
    gargoyle can die while flying?
    gargoyle can place house while flying?
    When gargoyle are flying, they can collect apples from trees?
    gargoyle can cast spells while flying?
    gargoyle can ride horses while flying?
    If I steal the wings of the gargoyles can I fly?

    XD

    Hmmm ... let me think about it ....
    Attachable wings that can take the cloak/quiver slot. Received by cutting up a gargoyle corpse and can be used only by elfs and humans.
    Flying over water would be funny too ... but is a bola'ed gargoyle drowning, if he gets hit when flying above water? But I would like to check, if those legendary house on the island on the sea near the spirituality shrine are still standing. And not to forget to thrown fishing nets in Illshenar to get paragon sea serpents. There must be somewhere water deep enough for fishing nets.

    OK if I am a gargoyle in flight will I be able to use my ladders? Or can I free up a lockdown by just flying to the second floor? Can I dismount myself in this condition? Or must I stop, land, fly to the second floor, fly, dismount, refly, timer to wait for walking... oh crap....

    no wait.. if I am a gargoyle and i've NOT dismounted myself, and am flying across the courtyard, and I miss the ladder, will I be in Malas? Tok? Or Tram?
