Strange Happenings In Moonglow

Discussion in 'UO Napa Valley' started by Guest, Mar 29, 2008.

    Recently we heard the news that Kronos the Mage had completed his long-neglected Blackrock Detector in Moonglow. Word travelled that he would be firing it up late last night.

    Many people of Napa came to see, curious, what would happen. Kronos and his assistants tried to engage the strange machine ... alas something seems to have not gone right. Kronos said maybe later, maybe today, it would work.

    Since morning today there has been some government intervention. There is now a fence around the detector, and guards. Protecting the Detector from us ... or us from it?

    Something strange is happening! Magic no longer works in Moonglow - the City of Magic! Lightning and thunder are eminating from the machine and observers wonder what is to come as very powerful beings suggest that we should bring Blackrock TO the Detector ...

    What will tonight bring??
     
  2. to die or not to die...

    no need to lag out the place...we can take this
     
  4. im just comparing it to the other shards that already have the event.
    atlantic and great lakes have over 500 people and its completly lagged out, the smaller shards are getting owned, you go through a gate to insta death.
    its like a double fuc oreo
     
  5. these are the two event items i've seen so far...

    If you read on Uhall the devs said you would get event items that seem like simple deco items. But they are to be turned in for greater rewards...

    I've seen the sword and shield, and I also found a 'Cloak of Corruption'. When you wear it, it dwindles away your HP and mana. @_@

    thread of darkness ?? is that confirmed i haven't found one of those yet i assume they came off dark wisps?
     
  16. the cloak leeches your hp and stamina while replinishing your mana at an incredibly fast rate, basicly it <u>currently </u> gives you unlimited mana.

    there saying the threads of life and fate do something when double clicked...so far only with the spirit speak skill though..they thought it was only people with bad karma..this isnt so, i used my other chars with really bad karma, and no msg's..i used my pally, no msg's...ive read people are getting the msgs with chars that just have the sp speak and no necro.....what the msg's mean and what they do we have no idea yet
     
  21. From what I understand with the cloaks of corruption they regen 70 to your highest stat and drain the other two. Also, this in unconfirmed, but I heard that if you die while wearing the cloak, it's gone. But that's unconfirmed and I didn't want to try it myself to find out. :p The top 3 damagers on the Shadowlords get cloaks right in their packs. Casting Armagedon "Vas Kal An Mani In Corp Hur Tym" while you have a piece of blackrock in your pack will do around 25000 to the shadowlords and will almost assuredly get you a cloak...Now this is only true if the shadowlord is full health. I think you're also likely to get a cloak if your the second person to hit it with armagedon, but I'm not sure.

    Planeshield and Planeswords are off of the Fallen Warriors. Curious to see if perhaps the sword and shield help with the berserkers...I don't have a built swordsmen myself. Any ideas?

    Threads of Fate and Threads of Life are off of Dark Wisps. Three variations of each. Tilted left and right angles and almost horizontal. Be warned if you're using the KR client there's no graphic for the threads. You have to use the list to find them.

    I haven't found anything of the fettid though.

    Also if you're running around try not to drag berserkers into the area around the gate. You can also recall out of the void too. [​IMG]

    i havnt tried the planesword on a bezerker, usually the mystical weaps do good on them, but ill give the plane sword a shot....there is someone right now, luring all the bezerkers to the fountain, he is inside the fountain..i have no idea why, but be carfull going into there right now
     
  23. Makes you wonder why people do that sort of thing. But thanks for the warning. ^_^

    I usually pre-cast invisbility before running through the gate and drop it as soon as I'm through. Pre-casting's still alright in the no cast zone, you just can't finish it there.

    well it could be that its a safe spot for them to sit and cast earthquake to try to kill them....but, anyone coming through that gate is dead
     
  25. Ya that is what is happening, the beserkers can't hit you in the fountain and you can spam EQ, just sux for everyone that's running through gate [​IMG]

    well i guess it is a needed thing right now though, there are way to many bezerkers going around out there right now....i tried using an archer from the hedgemaze to take a few of em out, and ended up being smacked around like a little ^$#%.
     
  27. Had them all lined up outside the fence on the southside of luna. I was casting ev's and discording them and a few other archers were hitting them, but guaranteed someone would come running through and lure em all off.
     
  28. The fountain trick actually worked very nicely just now for about half an hour to an hour. Once most of the daemons flagged on us in the fountain, it gave people the opportunity to finish off a redlined SL. But after a while we were ejected from the fountain. If you ask me (which im sure u dont, but thats what we're posting here for :p) better a few people EQ the daemons to death so the spawn is managable again, than the whole shard just invis/stealth looting shields/swords. But.. its all about easy looting, innit [​IMG]
     
  29. The only problem with that tatic is the berserkers switch targets at the drop of a hat. So people who come in to help fight die right as they hit the gate cause there's berserkers standing right there.

    I agree that they're too many people just stealth looting and running about just dragging spawn around. But dying as you enter doesn't help anyone at all.
