Treasure chest loot

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Finch, Jul 29, 2008.

    How about someone look into the treasure chest loot? I did a level 6 today, one item on was a +3 str ring. Odds are if I can do a level 6, I don't need a +3 ring. Only mods on it. I'd rather have much less junk, regs and scrolls are fine, jewels. But anything like that ring on a chest of that level, is really just junk.
    How about having some ingrediants or some of the larger jewels, in them instead?
    Anyone else have ideas??

    i dont think the devs give a rats behind about thunting...

    loot on 5/6 maps should be strongbox equivalent

    It's been asked for, for years.
    Over and over and over and over, well you get the drift...
    I think it falls in the "soon" category, but not sure.
    This is an example of existing game systems taht should be fixed, before we add a new expansion/client/whatever

    All levels of TChests and even locked spawning chests should have some increasingly likely goodie, artifact or something special just to keep folks doing them!

    I agree. I can make a decent amount of cash, but in the time it takes to set it up, dig and kill spawn, there are faster ways to make cash. There really needs to be something to make it worthwhile. As it sits right now, the only chest I dig are the level 6 for the arti's, and that is for turn in points. Once the points are done, I don't know that I will dig them. Loot is junk, quicker less risky ways to make 40k, why bother??
     
  7. Who needs anything anymore.
    Did you hear verite hammers are 8 mill?
    Make yourself, a weapon and some armour.

    Go to melissa, got lots of awesome jewelry.

    Seriously.
    What is happening to this game.

    Maybe add a new twist to treasure chests.
     
  8. Buy up every one that you find, and I'll pay to transfer them to Pacific. Right now, Verite hammers sell for more than the Valorite ones, and the Val ones sell for 18mil....


    But remember, there is NO duping going on around here.....:coco:

    Ummm...lvl 6 chests come with a Martie....which unless I am mistaken...is a chance for a Totem of the Void....right?

    Which is worth 1 mil...and couldnt the Totem be "owned by no one"

    a 5-10 mil item....so I fail to see how they completely suck.
     
  10. Totem of the Void is not one of the marties that is an option. Only paragon marties are given in those chests, not any of the ML marties.

    I am a gamer with a life and 5 kids and I can not sit and farm gold for hours. I do not have 8 million. I guess I could go buy the gold, but that just helps those gold farming scripters that I can't stand. I have been doing Melissa's quest and haven't got much as far as loot is concerned. I do however thank those that leave the gold on the floor there and at Misma. But I have a long way to go to get to 8 mil.

    Treasure map loot and fishing chest could use an overhaul. There have been numerous ideas and suggestions over the years. One of the most creative ideas I've seen was from several years ago when UO had it's own forums. This player thought chests should be "themed." So for example, maybe a chest would have a furniture/house deco theme. And when you fished or dug up the chest, there was a potential for rare house deco, furniture and building materials. I think there's great potential in these areas if the devs get the time to take a look.

    That is a great idea! Also would love to see peerless ingrediants added to the upper level chests. Doesn't have to be a TON of them, but a few of a couple different kinds would be great!
     
  14. It was more sarcasm to the ruining of the game
    well if you run to melissa recycling new players its pretty easy to get to 8 million.

    Not that you should.
    700k to 1 mill per 25k ticket and 100 to 200k for the cloak.

    If i werent lazy id would be farming tickets, instead im farming jewelry and rares she drops.
     
  15. I absolutely refuse to farm tickets. I could go through on every shard other than Pacific and trade tickets with people on just the one account I have, but I won't even do that. I ran my 6 characters through on Pacific, and am working on farming points "legitimately" with my Pacific characters. I average about 50-70k per day in points, so I'm not doing half bad.

    No, actually lvl 6 chests come with either a Luna Lance, Phillips Wooden steed, or the harp thing thats named. Thats all I ever got out of em anyway, maybe I'm just unnaturally unlucky!

  19. Ive been running my t hunter at lvl 5 and then 6 since aos. Ive got to say that ive had some incredible items from chests. the key is quantity. alot of lvl 6's and 5's feel so poor because of the effort it takes to kill the guardians.
    And arguably they should yeild better loot. but the difficulty isnt there to justify the loot, i mean lets face it. the guardians have loot already set for their difficulty so the chest is just a bonus.

    An example of one of the better things ive had from a tmap:
    Ring
    Sprit Speak +12
    Luck 80
    Fcr 3
    fc 1
    10%lrc

    And:
    Bracelet
    Anat +11
    Dex 6
    Hci 13%
    Lmc 6%
    Di 23%

    Now im no trader (infact i pride myself on having obtained all my items personally) but ive been offered at one point over 100mil for that ring and similar amounts for the bracer. Granted this was a year maybe two ago. But still thats a hell of a lot more money than ive ever managed to gather myself (i dont sell items either)

    Basically, my advice. throw the 5/6s they are good fun and its nice to have an excuse to drag a friend along, but in terms of loot/time ratio id go for 3/4.

    My t hunter is probably my least used char too :p well apart from my thief... but i dont think you can call a bunch of soulstones a char.
     
  20. Very nice Ring for sure

    I used to do them with a friend of mine just for the fun of killing all those AW's :)
     
  22. I think thats basically the point in tmaps and/or the entire game. Because its fun.
    Doesnt have to be as good for farming gold as everything else because its more fun than alot of the best ways to farm.

    Funny how the Devs never touch this topic. Like the code would simply be too difficult to change or something. :lie:

    They've already touched it once, so it can be done :)
    Long ago, think it might have even been Mr. Tact, combined some of the elements of the Tchests, if I remember right. Remember when you used to put out regs, 2 at a time? Instead of bundles of 30-50? And single scrolls, instead of stacks of 2-5?
    So it *is* do-able, we have seen that.

    Hey! I made a not too negative post!!!

    Funny thing about T-Maps...it doesnt matter chest level for loot.

    I do lvl 6's all the time...usually get nothing....

    But the first T-Map I ever did was a lvl 1...YEARS AGO...

    I pulled:

    Katana
    Supremely Accurate
    Indestructable
    Silver
    Vanquishing

    Yup...lvl 1...

    You must have fell out of yoru char!!!!!!

    BTW does luck increase the properties on items in chests?

    I'd like a person's luck to affect that loot.

    It generally stinks. I opened ~100 level 5 chests over the weekend and got 1 1/3, 2 0/3, 1 1/2, and a half dozen pieces of lrc armor worth keeping.

    Currently, luck does not affect treasure chest loot but it could affect the loot from the monsters that spawn with the chest.

    Luck doesn't matter for chests.

    I don't feel dungeon chests need as much work as treasure maps. Like the monsters in most dungeons, they are useful for gold farming, but they shouldn't have much else. I used to make some decent coin recalling between Ice Dungeon chests, Yew Crypt chests (both facets), and Trinsic Felucca (which on my shard has high level chests that spawn).

    Is it my imagination or do you get more gems from a SOS chest than from a level 6 chest? I do a few SOS bottles, and I have a ton of gems (which save me money when I want to waste lots of money tinkering up some terrible jewelry), but when I do a few maps, I don't have as many.

    Level 6 maps are fun to do until you open the chest and see the loot. I invited a few friends to do a map last weekend. I think everyone had fun, but I also think they were disappointed by the loot. A cavorting club isn't easy for four players to split after fighting two ancient wyrms, a balron, and a blood elemental. That's what? 500 gold each if I found someone to buy the club?

    Does this apply to fishing chests as well and SoS's?
     
  31. Sheridan

    Sheridan Guest

    That's correct - Luck does not have any effect on fished up chests from SOS/MIBs.

    Thanks.

    Was there a reason that you know of as to why luck doesnt apply to them?
     
  33. Sheridan

    Sheridan Guest

    As far as I know, the loot for the chests is generated when it's dug up and there's no variable in the equation or calculation that takes luck of the digger/fisher into account. From an outsider's perspective, I can't imagine it would take much coding to make it happen. It would be a great addition and would totally breathe some much needed life into the t-hunter and fishing professions.

    Heh yeah Level 6 map loot sucks yet you can do the minotar quest in Heartwood where all you have to do is collect items off the ground and turn in for strongboxes.

    I did...and then ran to East Brit Bank on Atlantic to sell it...sold it for 2 mil..which at the time was a butt load..

    Which I used to buy my first Large Tower...so you could say...that Katana started my UO life.

    This is a horse that has been beaten to death resurrected and beaten again and again and again....

    We all would like them to update the Treasure chests... and while they are at it they can update the MIB loot, look at the old loot on old monsters.... and a zillion other things.

    There should be T-Maps on Tokuno.... T-Maps in Illshnar.... They should have MIB's in Tokuno.... There should be more UPDATED items in Treasure chests... There should be actual items in the pickable chests in Illshnar....

    How many billion items like that can you think of that NEED to be either "Finished" or updated.... to me Illshnar was NEVER finished... It remains largely incomplete.... From each dungeon to each empty Chest.

    Do I think they Devs will give a HOOT? NO... Do I think they will ever work on updating things long overdue for updates? NO.... They speak often about updating the old dungeons... but beyond adding the 10th anniversary items to them and putting a few of those strangers about.... they have done little to nothing to update them..... How about doing something about those spots in some of the dungeons you can see but you can NEVER get to.... Like the ones down in Despise?

    Waste of time posting on here about this.... doubt they will either respond nor change anything anytime in the near future... It's my HOPE that they are actually working on my Christmas gift this year.... Cause I know for a FACT that I will scream foul if I go another year without... And I hope that they are working on something Decent for the upcoming 11th anniversary... Like a new cool bunch of Vet Rewards...

    And let the others whine and complain but I'm happy as heck to get things that are more deco than overpowering items.... If you want to give us useful items that's great... just make sure they aren't something that in 5 years new players are going to be SOL over... (kinda like personal bless deeds and the +5 stat bonus)... I still have tons of characters without a personal bless deed.
