Well, today I went to my first "The Stranger" spawning. It was on the Atlantic Server in the Hythloth Dungeon. There were about a dozen or so members there, with 4-6 fighting the monster during the spawning. It took us close to 30 minutes to kill the monster, and when it was completely red lined a slew of lazy people decided it was time to 'head on in". When it died, it changed forms, lots of lights and then the box dropped. Gold spawns as did items. Now I was right on top of the corpse fighting it with a Pally-Bushido Archer. I ping 8 to Atlantic, and have 0 lag. I saw the box spawn, and already had my curser where it spawned. However I was not the one who looted the box, and honestly it was still there on my screen, yet I was unable to loot it. I searched through the items that spawned on the ground, and noted that the stacks of gold were only in the 100's to 300's (maybe 100k total?). Not a single one of the items were worth looting for an experienced player, and the gold was not worth the trouble of fighting over. So I ask you, is this just another poor excuse of a game event? Is this what we are supposed to get excited for? I can get better loot from killing Blood Elementals, and they are a hellava lot easier... and less camped. I've long stopped playing Ultima Online for what they consider 'content'. I play for the ability to decorate a house, and for the PvP. It is and always be my favorite game, as it was my first... however I am always let down and disappointed by the poor attempts at game content and server events they try to shove down our throats.
