The "Whatupwitdat??" thread

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Prince Caspian, Nov 25, 2009.

  1. In UO:

    1. Killing Vampire Bats do not give you bat wings.
    2. Bird slayers dont work on Harpies
    3. Turkeys have more hitpoints that a paragon wyrm
    4. Headlesses sometimes have hats as loot.
    5. Horses are everywhere yet Horse Droppings is a rare item.
    6. The guards themselves call for guards.
    7. Pigs sometimes spawn in arctic areas.
    8. A rock about the size of a softball can prevent a castle from being placed.
    9. Sea serpents, fire fields, energy vortexes -- ships are somehow invunerable to everything except time.
    10. We have pigs in the game yet even a GM chef can't make the roasted pig or bacon from their corpses.
    11. Banks are where the adventurers hang out, not the Tavern
    12. The official description for Sacred Journey says you can't use it dishonorably, but you can SJ out fine to save your butt
    13. One arrow costs more than a backpack.

    I don't think a playstyle you disapprove of qualifies for the thread, really.

    Especially not for someone on the Stratics staff.

    There's lots of playstyles I don't understand at all.

    Imagine the firestorm that'd already be unleashed if I'd said something similar about the Fellie playstyle, not 2 minutes after I'd posted, assuming that the post survived that long without being deleted?

    Troll much? Obviously you don't understand this thread. His post was right on topic with this thread.

    Here, let me make a fel observation...

    -In fel, the SAFEST way to visit a strangers house is by getting naked before you follow a stranger to their home.

    ***Edit: Been over 15 minutes and Im still waiting for this firestorm you assumed would be coming.

    I didn't mean to offend anyone, No idea what the hell Galen is going on about.. and for the record, I collect rubble too... *grins*

    It's just funny we'd pay so much for what is.. rubble.

    We should give bards a buff ability in a Tavern or something like you listen to someone play for a minute and get some sort of buff. Be interesting.

    Not a comment on a 'playstyle', surely it's just outright strange that some of the most valuable items in the game, as far as players are concerned, are either rubble, ruined, or in some way completely unuseable, whilst the stuff to keep you 'alive', like food, bandages, basic housing and such, are relatively dirt cheap.

    24) All sheep have four legs when alive, but only three when dead.

    25.) The mighty Lich Lord is incable of operating a simple door but the lowly lich can manage them just fine.

    26.) A tailor can make abyssal cloth from crstalline blackrock but they can't sew together a bag.

    27.) You can walk the plank but you cannot run it.

    28) You can play loud drums while hidden but you cant drink a potion and can only hide when 8 or more tiles away from a monster or aggro player. Invisibility and smoke bombs always work though :D

    Maybe they're dipers; hence which would explain why there are no toilets in-game.

    29) I can have a weapon and shield in hand, and still somehow use bandages on myself.
    30) Bandages can cure the most powerful poison in mere seconds.
    31) We can use bandages on a ghost, which technically has no body or physical being.

    32) Why the game would create a garg only ring... with plus 2 to archery. I thought archery was a no no for gargs?

    ( I looted a sword that was a garg only garg slayer... seemed wrong to make them turn on their own kind.)

    33. You can drop any amount of food on an npc and they'll eat it, even 60000 fish steaks. Wouldn't they get fat?

    34. We still get the global "nightsight" magic failure... just nobody uses the spell or potion any more. Except me, I suppose.

    35. All other "schools" of magic have way less spells. And their spellbooks cost a lot more. Sounds like a scam to me.

    36. Yew trees hardly ever give you Yew wood.

    ...

    40. You can fit 125 full size armoires into a single small pouch
     
  38. 41. Items crafted by a blacksmith weigh more than the raw materials used to make them.

    42. A 2 story tall dragon with twice the intelligence of most humans can't see something directly in front of it, and when it finally does, can't figure out that all it needs to do is take one step to the side to be able to get to it.

    43. (To go with Connor's #41) Tailors can cut up leather items, and get half the leather back, but that amount of leather weighs more than the item it was gained from.

    44. Not only do Brigands call for guards, but it's common for them in some locations for their band to commit "suicide by cop", UO style, by being guard-whacked by the very guards they called (good example - Trinsic Barrier Island).

    46. We have tomato soup...but not one tomato plant.

    47. We have bowls of corn,peas,and potatoes but no plants for them.

    48. Why do skinned sheep only produce 3 legs of lamb? Where did that fourth leg go??

    49. Why do we only get "ribs" from skinning anything...such a waste of meat. If I went to skin a deer or a cow,I would want the shank,tenderloin,and shoulder.

    50.Speaking of skinning...how is it possible to get as much meat (One rib) off a mongbat as I get off a llama?

    for the fisherfolk out there...

    56. Why does a torso weigh only 11 stones (with head attatched) while a severed head weighs 10 stones? (I have visions of extremely large headed people sinking head first into the deep blue...)

    not all sliths have tongues to drop

    not all bouras have pelts, or even skin, to drop

    empty bottles weigh as much as full bottles

    most banks have no money in them

    a fire pit cannot be used as a heat source for cooking, but a heating stand can.
