    Okay someone has started the stupid rumor that the new quest is temporary. I have read everything I can find and NO where does it say its temporary. Where did this rubbish come from? Did I miss something somewhere? If someone has info to the contrary I would appreciate a link or something to it.

    Otherwise would people stop spread unsubstantiated rumors!!!!

    As far as I know, there is not a single response made by the devs indicating that the quest will only be offered for a limited time. However, I can see the reasoning behind this rumour:

    Jane: The quest is offered by the security advisors of Queen Zhah addressing an unrest amongst Gargoyles. If Zhah acts on those Outcasts in the Abyss in a future event, this quest will likely be replaced by another or end. This is what happened in the Ranger of The Abyss and later Rise of the Bane Chosen event quests.

    John: These are true. However, Ranger (and Warden, you left that out Jane) of the Abyss event quests are offered to determine who will win one of two housing plots in the Stygian Abyss. We all knew the quests will eventually end and winners will be announced. Rise of the Bane Chosen quests always end with a new Publish, so we were able to check TC1 to see the quests are no longer offered or see new quests are offered instead, at least a week prior.

    fred: These are all true, but we can never be sure until a dev responds to this thread. And also, why is my name not capitalized?

    It never occurred to me that they weren't temporary. Though now that you mention it, they didn't actually say that, that I can recall.

    I would, however, not call this one "rubbish." Such a term should I suggest be reserved for when people post that UO is being shut down because there's login server issues. Or that the problems in the game are a master plan to divert all of UO's player base to the new Star Wars game, as though even all 50,000 (presumed on my part, not known!!!) of us switching could somehow make up the ridiculous investment EA's sunk into that game.

    I guess technically the new quest being temporary is a rumor unless they've said so explicitly and I've missed it.

    But it's a pretty reasonable one; far from rubbish.

    For my part I thought it was temporary because it's pretty clearly part of a new storyline (or is a self-contained storyline by itself, though I suspect strongly there will be additional parts).

    And that's temporary just by definition.

    But yeah, never occurred to me that it would not be temporary!

    Thanks Nimuaq for the link, Both gargoyle And human version of rewards I see. Wonder if they let us pick which version we want? I'd like to sell both types.


    NM, I won't be doing that Quest.

    the 2 different quests give the 2 different versions of the reward.

    you dont need to fight outcast at all just rousers.
    kill 5-20 rousers or so and a void manifestation will appear.
    kill that for a 100% chance to get 1 gem on body.
    you need a gem from each of the 3 camps.

    voids are fast healers. its best to drag them away from spawn and perhaps have 2 fighters against them. word of death works well.

    Many monsters now have this ability.

    Corgul for example, and I'm pretty sure Scalis. Some EM event monsters too.

    Doesn't just work with life leach from vampire form but also from items.

    Sampires can still be effective on these critters they just have to change tactics.
