    Is it possible to get a drop off of the Doom bosses?

    No, I don't think it is right now, It has been turned off for Halloween content.

    For clarity, I am referring to getting a turn in drop not a normal artifact off the bosses. :)

    You can kill a vampire bat in doom and have a chance at a treasure of doom drop but if you wish to run the doom gauntlet, then sure...but why!:coco:

    Is it possible to get the drop rate turned up somewhat?
    I've literally killed over 1000 Gibberlings and only got 8 treasures so far, no way at this rate will I get anywhere near the amount needed to buy 1 of the decent items.

    I wish the devourer's had better drop rates. I would be more inclined to fight them, rather than run away.

    Ahh, so this event ain't for everyone. Only those with uber expensive suits to withstand a room full of Dark Guardians without eating dirt.

    That's not quite accurate. Using a whirlwind weapon that is straight imbued (reforged for 100% poison, hit fireball, hit fire area, ssi and hit mana) can take down a 8-10 guardians in two swings. DCI and even resists (with exception of poison and if your in vamp form it doesn't matter either) don't matter when building a suit to farm the room because you are killing them so fast that they don't often get a chance to smack you.

    Uber suits are great, however suits that are built for specific encounters are just as good most of the time.

    This is the first time I've used Dark Guardians. Last year I got 70+ items from just running around killing stuff. I used different characters including mystic bard, archer, thrower, and tamer. I'm happy to have Doom all to myself, so if you want to talk yourself out of participating, go ahead. But the event can be handled by just about any toon. The key for me last year was to be aware of where others were in doom in case I needed a rez, and to always help those who needed it in a reciprocal manner.

    A mystic with 120 focus, some SDI and an undead slayer book can wreak major havoc among them with Nether Cyclone as well.

    I did the Guardian Room pretty much exclusively all the time last year on a Sampire doing WW with EoO and had no problem with even as many as 12 Dark Guardians spawning.

    And I bet the suit had just basic resists, LRC and LMC, hardly expensive

    Same, but I was on a mystic. I got 1-2 drops (usually one) every time they spawned, with a bunch of people in the room. Haven't done it this year.

    Correct since my Sampire is a tertiary character pretty much I don't really use her much. And she didn't have an uber weapon either.... she's a macer so I made her a 100% fire black staff I think... and Guardians are undead so wore the Undead Tally... no LRC at all I carry regs.

    I have no idea what a treasure of doom is or what they're good for, and I wonder how many other people in UO don't either.

    Right, sorry, forgot for a minute a sampire only needs 3 regs, and that's only when she dies

    This is how I do it. I use Spellweaving and summon 5 pixies to get more guardians and can kill them all in two cyclone or hailstorm.
