    Everyone's seen it, everyone has been LOST in it.. I think ti should be updated!! *nods*

    Just did a stroll through it and I think one of two things should happen to this beautiful maze that I cannot gaze upon for more than 2 seconds without getting attacked by an imp..

    It's full of bug, there is a lot of places where you get stuck, an example is the top of the tower in the center.. Can't get up there unless you're a mage. I think perhaps the spawn in it should be re-vamped or it should be restored to its former glory! Perhaps through a story arc.. Anyways, just one area in the game that needs re-vamped imo, because I really like the place! It's just.. Old..

    This is one of those areas that hold a special place in a lot of old timers hearts. And it's not just because some of us learned the fine art of teleporting here.:p

    Could make a mini boss area out of it. Make it so you can't gate/recall or teleport in the maze, block of the center, and put a quest guys (Relvinian's ghost or whatever) at each of the 4 buildings that send you to find something in the maze, then put some monsters around. When you finish the quest you get some fun reward, as well as a magic key. Once you get all 4 keys you can access the center of the maze and fight some demon boss.

    Shrug.

    I always thought it was a highly under used area. Theres lots of super cool little areas, but nothing much to do there.

    I've thought that about a lot of places in UO.

    True. I was always sad that the ilsh dungeons didnt have more interesting stuff in them. They are all really nice looking. Sorcerers especially, but I also really like the rock dungeon.

    I agree Rock Dungeon used to be one of our favorite places to hunt paragons for drops... but we no longer do that. Was a great place to bring a group once long ago. Now not so much. Now can't get a group because it's hard to get more than 2 or 3 people on at a time... sad really.

    But there are 100's of places in UO that have long been forgotten. Ilsh was a place that really can be used by EM's to give it some history and story... It's a vast unwritten canvas... added content would be great. One thought I had was they could rebuild a place where they destroyed Blackthorns and put the Vanguard there..... complete with Dread Warhorses.... What a great place for them to go now.... They can enslave the Savages nearby.... and build a mighty fortress there. And it would give folk a permanent place to tame Dreads.

    I love the Maze! I go there from time to time and just take a stroll. I also like the hidden area there. I do think though if they ever did add something more to the maze to make it a "boss" area, teleporting would need more restrictions, it kinda defeats the "maze" aspect of it.

    I bash imps at the maze for the Grizelda quest. Occasionally I crash or lag upon recalling there, and of course my rune is marked in the middle of the spawn, and when I come round some imps are adding the last couple of fireballs to kill me and lolololing.
    The Hedge Maze is a cool place.
