    Town criers are spamming every bank, sending us to some NPC in the Moonglow zoo who doesn't do anything. /shrug

    I guess this is old and just leads to some typical "f**k you melee, quit UO" overpowered holiday turkey monster. I wasn't here last year for this.

    Say "Brush" to him. You need it to do the maps.

    They turned the turkeys on, but forgot to turn the quest dialogue on.

    When you kill a giant turkey you have a high chance to recieve an Ornithologist's Map - or a fragment of one. Three fragments create a whole map, just double click on one.

    To use the maps, double click to find the location (no cartography needed). Then you head to the Moonglow Zoo and say "Brush" to Al the Ornithologist. He gives you an Ornithologist's Brush (tmered item, 10,800 seconds).

    You then go to the map location and use the brush on the map, then the ground. You will get a message about how closw you are.. Keep doing that till you find the nest.

    Once the nest is revealed, open the bag (SW corner) and get your loot. You should also then double-click any giant turkey eggs in the nest to destroy them (rare chance at an item).

    The bag in the nest should contain: 1 giant turkey feather (brief invisibility when used), 3-5K gold

    The bag also has the possibility at spawning something rare: Cornucopia, a plucked turkey, a harrow, a nest (empty).

    Do I understand it right, then, that there is nothing new as to last year's Thanksgiving?

    No new parts or rewards ?

    This question has been answered in at least 3 other turkey-related threads...multiple times.

    Nothing new as of yet.

    Thanks for the answer Martina. It's the one place I've seen explained what is actually going on.

    Rather than starting a new thanskgiving thread ill add onto this one.

    I didnt have a chance to take part in last years event. But i was very disapointed when i got a 2009 harvest cider from a 2010 event. Other than that its been a lot of fun so far.

    Look with all the work and the hollidays sneeking up on the Dev, I was just happy we got the Turkeys... not all of us got a bird last year or a harrow. (got the bird today!!) Enjoy it.
    This time of year just enjoy the fun with your friends and murder the turkeys. Oh by the way ... Why are they hanging around my museum?? I have at least 4 at my door.

    i couldnt sleep last night so i went out and killed off like 20 of the birds.

    then did like 12 maps.

    i didnt get anything that was new or interesting apart from what we got last year.

    but im still tickled pink over the graphics of all the stuff, so im a happy camper.

    Turning the plucked bird to a butcher gets you the Harvester Blade. From last year but I still like to have one on each character. Really useful tool that when used on a corpse puts possible leather, feathers, meats, furs and scales right into backpack.

    Never did get a Harrow last year after many turkey mosh pits. The barding was high at first last year. They lowered it to 25 so anyone without a 120 bard could join the fun. So with a GM crafted flute or the likes and human JOAT should be fine. Put on that max HP regn and watch the feathers fly. Discording all but one speeds up the dieing.

    Just need to wait and see if there is one those new 1 in 25000 RNG added this year.

    My time to play the game is, unfortunately, limited.

    This means, that I am forced to make choices on how to spend my time in the game, doing what......

    Since I participated quite extensively last year to the Turkey hunt, I do not see the point of going through it all over again unless there are some new aspects to it.

    I'd rather spend what limited time I have for UO doing something else.

    Does the Harvester Blade have limited uses like other tools used to get hides, meat etc.?

    Warpig, sorry but barding has been fixed this year. The barding dificulty is 120 this year as opposed to the 12 of last year. I do not think JOAT will work. So the Dev's did spend some time on this. Just not alot for the initial looks of it.

    Merion, I hunted the turkeys the entire time last year, the change is what made the barding dificulty 12.0. The turkeys did not start that way but ended that way. I will check with the others in my hunting party and make sure but the character that I was using to Provoke the turkeys has not changed, skill wise, since last years event.

    It will not work, not even close to working. My bard is 118 music and 75 provo and does not stand a chance to provo them. Maybe they will drop it to 50 this year :)

  31. It dropped in pack from a Parragon Giant Turkey.

    I seriously doubt you could discord a paragon giant turkey, the fail rate on regular ones was increased from last year. No more barding dificulty of 12, its 120.0 now...
     
  36. Yes, Discorded it then Provoked Harbingers on it.
     
  37. You can Discord things that have 160 Barding Difficulty.

    True ! but if i remember right the effect is less for things with 160?
     
  39. It is, but these aren't 160, they're 120. I just brought up 160 because the other person seemed to think 120 was impossible.

    No, I stated that a regular turkey was 120.0 barding difficulty. Since I have discorded many a turkey the last few days, I know its well within our ablities. However, since paragon status buffs a beastie considerably I figured that it would push them beyond our ability to discord. I haven't found a paragon turkey to lore it yet though...

    Remember:

    Last year, they were 160, until people objected to them being too difficult (and reminding devs of the promises devs made not to make something so common unbardable).

    At that point, one of the devs tried to lower it from 160.0 to 120.0, but had a brain fart, and they forget (monster coding not their usual job) that the number is entered just like the skills you set on Test Center.

    They type 120 instead of 1200, and we got 12.0 barding difficulty Turkeys.

    They left them that way, not wanting to disadvantage those that would miss out on the small window that they were easy, but fixed it for this year.

    Aye, and that has to do with paragon turkeys...how?

    Wasn't debating the history, just the liklihood of barding dificulty for a paragon when the base IS 120.0 currently.

    Where would you find a paragon turkey anyway? Unless you mean one of the bosses transformed into a turkey, I thought they were only spawning in Tram and Fel...?

    I think they spawn anywhere a bird can spawn. Not sure though, I haven't been on at all, and now that they have the right barding difficulty I'll never have a chance in hell of killing even a regular one heh.

    You know what would be nice? An event that was something OTHER than uber boss monsters. Maybe like a balron level monster invasion? Or at least something with boss monsters and other weaker monsters as well? It just gets a little old facing the same 80+ damage hits, teleports you to it, nonsense.
     
  46. The Parragon ones are also 120 Barding Difficulty.

    Parragon Giant Turkeys can be found in Ilshenar.

    Ummmm I have not seen one but THINK for minute. IF champs can pop as a Turkey according to other thread then that Turkey would have a slight chance of being para would it not? Folks are too fast to all but call others liars these days.
     
  49. There are no paragon turkey's.

    The champs only appear as a turkey, they are still the champ with the same abilities just a different look.
     
  50. They're in the forest North of the Meer Village.
