    Its not broken just keep fighting. And how is the seed drop to low? I get roughly 15 a day from the rats at the cavern of the discarded.

    5-7 a day,many from the other resourcess but seeds not.

    resourcess realy should be increased,people like to play with imbuing.....farming the resourcess for weeks is boring ;)

    Quick question. Lets say that you never needed to farm for resources and they were in your pack like give resource command. After you play wih imbuing then what you going to do with what you made assuming you can't sell or give it away because everyone else can also do a give resource command.

    Which is exactly the way it should be. If you don't like doing something, get gold doing something you do enjoy, and use that gold to buy the things that you don't enjoy farming. It builds community, and it keeps the game challenging.

    Two days ago, I did two out of the three rat spawns and got 4 seeds.

    Seems decent enough to me...

    /Agree

    Thats what i do, if i need something i hunt things i enjoy and sell the "prettys!" and buy the things i need.

    You could also grow some plants i grew 1000 and got 205 seeds from it, enough to last me a long time ;)

    how is imbuing on siege going?
    have you ever seen someone in a 255 dura maxed out armor?

    i think on siege imbu resourcess should be npc vendor buyable

    There you go. trade your gold with someone on aanother shard with low price seeds using a broker. Use the gold in the other shard to buy as many seeds you can. use a transfer token back to your shard with the seeds keep the seeds you need and sell the rest to the rest of the shard for a profit as there is no competition to make up what you paid for the trip and get a profit. Unless everyone is growing there own plants so they won't buy from you in that case you need to find them. look for homes full of plants the botanist of your shard. If not do what i said you come out with more gold than you started with and still have your seeds without making a game wide change.

    That's not a low rate. 1 in 40 is about average.

    I have noticed the special drops tend to run in streaks, will be down there one day i'll get mostly one thing, next day mostly another thing. think last time i was farming them got mostly abyssal cloth( 20 out of 35 drops). though it changes, usually about half my drops will be of one item.

    no siege maybe could have an increased drop rate but making everything NPC buyable destroys the damn risk vs reward, pvp aspect of the siege ruleset/playstyle.

    Now if you are on a shard that is unpopulated why dont you hop on over to a populated one that still has a strong player base? If you have 2,000,000,000 like you claim to have then getting the transfer tokens should be easy, pack your house up and move. Then you'd have a never ending supply of luna vendor mall vendors full of seeds for you to purchase, I'll even meet you in game to give you a rune to my vendor so that you may never have to kill another rat for your seeds again. Ill be your harvester. Every evening you just recall to the vendor, click buy, and go on your merry way.

    Im not trying to be a total smart a%% but seriously come to Great Lakes and Ill keep up the supply with your demand.

    It kinda reminds me of WAAAAAAAYYYYYYY back when, when i first started UO, you had all these crafters that didnot want to go chop wood but went through wood like water. Sh*% thats all i did for the longest time, Logged in, lumberjacked, mined, went to town, sold thousands of boards and ingots, i even had contracts set up with crafters, they would order 45k ingots and 60k boards and would want it in x amount of days, and if i got it sooner i got a .25gp per board/ingot bonus on the amount i got paid.

    A few options:

    1) grow plants and claim the seeds. I average 14.2% seeds of renewal on the plants I have grown thus far.

    2) keep farming the rat spawn

    3) transfer (either permanently to a shard that has what you need, or temporarily to a shard with what you need to buy, then transfer back to your home shard)


    Suggestions (maybe you have already done these as well):

    1) post in your shard forum's buy/sell thread

    2) find some prodigious gardeners, and make a deal with them. You may have access to something they want/need, and many of them could provide you wiht what you are lookig for outside of a vendor system. Make contact either in game or in your shards forum.



    I do not think the drop rate needs to be adjusted. It is fine as it is.

    As other dudes have noted, take up botany. Making plants is the way to go if you want mass amounts of seeds. But really, what do you need 300 seeds for? Does your crafter need a 12 MR suit too?

    I've gotten as many as 7 seeds from one Rat spawn. It's very random, whether you go there or do plants. And as other dudes have noted, if you don't want to run the cavern, choose another rat race, like participating in local events and selling rares. Even if there aren't people on your shard you can probably sell shard rares to collectors from abroad, maybe even using these forums ;P.

    Bottom line is the rat spawns are very easy to kill and give tons of things you can use other than seeds. They could have put the seeds on something tougher, you know? Haha. Every time I go to rats I have to make sure I don't fall asleep because they are so easy to kill.
