Trying to find...

Discussion in 'UO Legends' started by NaKasha Saran, Apr 5, 2012.

  1. Years ago my brother Crandor Trallex, my hubby Zathro and I made a 23 book set of mining books for Trammel & Malas facets. I sold several of these sets over time and was wondering if anyone had a set of them that I could perhaps beg, borrow or steal long enough to make a new set for myself. I seem to have lost my own set...*sad face*

    Let me know, thanks!

    Depending on how old they are they may be useless. When I came back from my uo vacation my mining runebooks were worthless, none of the runes matched the ore. Not 100% sure what happened but ore spawns were. Definately messeed with in my absence.

    It may be best just to start a new set.

    They made the ore spawns random, same with wood for lumberjacks...where you find iron today might be val tomorrow, and today's valorite vein might be tomorrow's shadow *shrugs* Any set you find would just be for a keepsake...their usefulness would be questionable.
    [opinion] This was done to combat some of the recall scripters, but in effect what it did was mostly guarantee scripters job security. Whereas in the past, the casual gamer could hit his rune to gold, and mine a bit of gold, now he has to spend his time recalling around hunting and hoping for a gold vein. Sso therefore, it's even more frustrating for him. The scripter, on the other hand, doesn't rreallly care. He's mining 23/7 on a throwaway account, and he knows if his spot is iron, when he mines it out and comes back it will be something else. Unless this has been redone yet again, and very recently, thats the way it is. An effort to curb scripting gone awry cause it wasn't well thought out...[/opinion]

    Also along the same lines, T-maps are random now too...so don't invest the time or money to buy/build a set. Just a few books (each island, scattered diverse areas of the mainland and malas and tokuno) is all thats needed...just something to get ya close or in the area.
     
  6. Wow... that sucks... we spent months making those books... lol. Thanks for all the replies! :D
