    He had a cool special effect, A Black hole popped up and the stranger froze you then all of a sudden you started hopping one tile at a time toward the black hole, when sucked into the black hole you appeared in what i think to be Vespar Cemetary. Dead on LS

    Thats effect was used in the Magencia attack as well, by the Void Demons? i think. Pretty cool though and an interesting turn to a fight!

    Don't be so harsh...yet at least. I think allot of this stuff, including the Inu events and even stuff before that, may be a big set up for what's to come. Both in adding the new stuff and in continuation. Allot of it may be depth for what's to come for years. I hope so anyways.

    Heh, I wonder how many players these days know their way from the Vesper cemetery to the bank. :thumbup:

    Does Kryson also turn into a dragon/wyrm briefly upon death? Just to confirm, do they all?

    Well, I haven't missed a single UO payment in over 9 years. I was told there was going to be a expansion and I have nothing yet they continue to get my money. I was told there would be epic and realm changing things happening at the end of last month, yet they still continue to get my money. My patience is wearing out. I'm tired of vague promises of great things to come. Someone needs to start talking about why I should continue to give them my money.

    Dropped on LS about half an hour ago.

    It is a human male, carrying an ornate axe, dressed in black dragon armor, and it somehow looks more menacing than the others.

    At no point did I notice him dropping his weapon, which is an interesting change.

    His evil black gate spell thingie is heralded by him speaking words of power which are different from, but similar to, the Gate spell.

    He hits hard but not as hard as some of the others.

    A neat stream of fire does massive to ranged attackers, one at a time.

    It was a lot of fun on LS...I was teleported two or three times and to different locations each time. Vesper cemetary and to Mag...not sure where the other place was. :thumbup:

    is krysan still spawning or has it switched to a new stranger...?!?!?
     
  24. Azureal

    I thought there was only 6, Krysan being the 6th.

    What Id like to know, is now that each of them have been soundly defeated, with nothing more than a few rounds of insurance money lost, what happens next?

    Six nasty dudes come around and cause trouble, nothing in my UO life has changed. My scribe makes scrolls, my miner digs rocks, my lockpicker opens boxes that arent his and takes the stuff out. Ho hum?

    He's on LS again.

    No weapon this time and.....Well, I usually don't mind one-hit kills. In fact I've come to expect them in high-level PvM.

    However, what I do mind is when something one-hit-kills you every time it hits you.

    Assuming a character with 60 to 70 in each resist, a one-hit-kill should happen at most a couple of times a fight. Not every hit.

    I didn't mind the Destard's one-hit-kills, because you could work with it. It didn't nail you with 600 damage every time it looked in your direction.

    i think that was the last krysan...the kry on LS we just killed had to have been there from last night and the new cycle will kick in after death.

    anyone seen a diff stranger somewhere?!?!

    Nope. I have seen three Krysans today. And I am sure I missed one or two judging from the loot left on the floor.

    Maybe tomorrow will start the random stuff.

    or maybe today was and it was #6 again.

    It would've been nice if one shard left them all alive just to see if anything would happen.
